Located in Florence’s historic Santa Croce neighbourhood, Florence View Loft is a charming rooftop flat overlooking some of the city’s most prominent monuments and Florentine roofs. Famed for its Renaissance architecture and metropolitan feel, Tuscany’s buzzing capital in central Italy is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Europe.

Combining the nonchalant charm of a traditional Italian farmhouse with modern flair, the bright interiors are effortlessly cosy. On the lower floor, guests can find the master bedroom with a queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, as well as an additional double bedroom and equally sophisticated bathroom. Combining old with the new - think exposed wooden beams, rustic furniture and pleated window curtains – these rooms offer the utmost comfort.

Upstairs there is a stunning open-plan space featuring a farmhouse-style kitchen and homey living room complete with 15th-century features such as original furniture that has been re-modelled to achieve a more stylish look. From here you can enjoy truly breathtaking views of Palazzo Vecchio and the Duomo, thanks to the windows spread all around the room. You’ll love spending the mornings on the panoramic terrace listening to the sound of bell towers and enjoying freshly baked croissants from the panetteria downstairs – after you climb the 86 steps, of course. Alternatively, the second terrace is excellent for finding a cosy corner with a good book.

Florence’s beautiful and vibrant charm awaits outside the apartment’s front door. Set in a historical building which was the embassy of the Duchy of Milan during the 15th century, you have all the attractions and foodie spots virtually at your doorstep. After a walk through the city’s narrow lanes, stopping to peruse the many street markets, explore the stunning Pitti Palace and its botanical garden filled with trees and fountains. Florence’s museums, squares, churches and towers are also a must-visit before ending the day with a refreshing aperitif on a pavement terrace.

The closest beach in Versilia in the northwest province of Lucca can be reached in just over an hour by car. Lazing around the beach is definitely on the agenda here, as the quaint little seaside resort town boasts a dreamy stretch of coastline with a plethora of fine sandy beaches.

Livorno is an 80-minute drive away and features a modern harbour with a cruise ship port as well as a famous promenade with checkered flooring. Exploring the nearby beaches as well as its many seafood restaurants makes for a fantastic day out.

True wine connoisseurs will love visiting the nearby Chianti vineyards and medieval villages located on the hillside. Known for the Sangiovese grape variety, the prominent wine area is visited by tourists and wine enthusiasts from all over the world.

Located just a short stroll away from the city’s Ponte alle Grazie bridge in the true beating heart of Florence, Florence View Loft will delight even the most sophisticated travellers seeking one-of-a-kind escapes.

You’ll never be short of breathtaking views in this historic rooftop apartment, overlooking all the beautiful buildings and Renaissance architecture on display. Explore the city’s winding streets, frescoed churches and enchanting palaces on a morning stroll or settle in a cosy café with a cup of coffee and pastry as you watch the world go by. When it’s time for more culture, simply head to one of its many museums such as the Uffizi Gallery and Museo dell'Opera del Duomo. The Pitti Palace also hosts a museum alongside a botanical garden inviting you for a lush picnic beneath the swaying trees and aromatic plants. The Basilica of Santa Croce, Palazzo Vecchio and the 13th-century Cathedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore are also not to be missed.

When you’ve discovered all the beautiful places the city has to offer, including its vibrant restaurant scene, consider taking a spontaneous trip to Livorno. The port city is located approximately a 70-minute drive away and boasts additional Renaissance fortifications. Walk along the harbour and observe the majestic cruise ships or gather at the checkerboard promenade before watching the sun slip behind the horizon on a lantern-lit terrace restaurant.

Those fond of good wine and quaint locations can explore the nearby Chianti countryside with gnarly olive groves and sun-kissed vineyards. Try all the famous grape varieties and have picnics in picture-perfect villages or set off on a wholesome walk through one of the six valleys that make up the Tuscan hills.

On a warm summer’s day, organise a day trip to the closest beach, located in Versilia. Just over an hour’s drive away, the seaside resort is popular for its long stretch of golden sand lined with umbrellas and backed by sea-view terraces and restaurants serving traditional seafood dishes and local cuisine.

Viareggio is another city located north of Livorno. Known for its Carnival and some really interesting museums, it also boasts a long pier that reaches over 500 meters into the sea and offers a magnificent view of the coast and the port.

Kids

Best Suited For: Teens
Ideal for Teens

Whether you’re planning a trip to Florence with teenagers or toddlers, be ready for a lot of walking from one pretty place to another. The picturesque city is best explored on foot – but luckily the buzzing restaurant scene ensures you can always find a good place for a pit stop.

To guarantee school kids learn something new while on their holiday, make sure to visit one of Florence’s many museums – there are museums focused on the city’s history and art as well as culture and politics, so you’re really spoiled for choice here. Older children can find out fascinating facts about Italian genius Leonardo Da Vinci in the museum dedicated to him and discover a number of his significant projects, some of which were found in his Leonardo's Codex. The Museum of Natural History is home to ancient remains and fossils sure to capture the imagination of young visitors.  

If all they can talk about is building sandcastles on the beach and splashing in the waves, then plan a family trip to Tuscany’s pretty coastline. Seaside resort towns such as Versilia and Viareggio have long sandy beaches neatly lined with rainbow-hued parasols and great for lazing around and playing.

In nearby Livorno, children will love looking at all the magnificent cruise ships moored in the modern harbour and exploring the surrounding area full of hiking trails overlooking the rocky shores.

*Please note that, due to the number of stairs leading up to the apartment, it is not recommended for small children.

Reviews

  • Amazing!

    on 01/05/2024

    We had an amazing stay at Florence View Loft. It was even better than the pictures. Spacious, great natural light,the necessary amenities, and in the most convenient location. The views, the balconies were also amazing. Would love to return.

  • The perfect location

    on 01/07/2022

    This place was amazing. Very comfortable! It was in the perfect location - very central to everything you want to see in Florence. We walked everywhere. Erika, who is the property manager was fantastic. She was extremely responsive to all of our needs. The highlight of our trip was having Erika cook dinner for us in our apartment and teaching us how to make pasta. It was such a special night.

  • 10/10 would recommend... You won't regret it!

    on 22/05/2022

    This is a fantastic property! It’s up about 5 flights of stairs but the views and apartment are totally worth the daily small but if exercise. The apartment itself is absolutely lovely, very large, and clean. We spent a lot of time drinking wine watching the sunset from the terraces and listening to the bustle of the city below us. The apartment is fully stocked, they even left a bottle of wine from the owners winery. I think our favorite detail was the large book of recommendations and education about Italian culture, museums, and cuisine that the owners created and left in the home for guests to use. We referenced that multiple times a day to choose where to eat, shop, drink, etc. Erika was also very helpful during our stay. We would text her on WhatsApp and she would help call restaurants to book reservations or provide recommendations on things to do and places to eat. The apartment was in the center of everything. Easy access to main attractions and tons of restaurants. But overall we had an amazing stay and 10/10 would recommend anyone visiting Florence to stay here as well. You won’t regret it!
