This apartment offers a great experience in a romantic and evocative environment, offering the same quality and luxury level than other wider and expensive apartments. Eleonora personally keeps in touch with the guests and welcomes them at the arrival. - PRICE. The price is all inclusive except for the City Tourist Tax. EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION The Apartment is located in Via dei Servi, one of the most characteristic and evocative streets of Florence, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza S.S. Annunziata, two of the most beautiful squares of Florence. It is placed at the beginning of the street at very few steps from the Cathedral, in the pedestrian area surrounding the Duomo and the inner historical core of the city. The main artistic sites are very close to Via dei Servi and reachable on foot in few minutes, also is the railway station.The Apartment is located at the second floor (it corresponds to the third one in american designation) in an ancient building provided with an elevator very useful for people and suitcases. The building dated back the Renaissance period, it has been renovated in last years, preserving the original elements of the ancient florentine houses of the Renaissance. The Bargellini-Guarnieri Catalogue describes the building as simple but provided with 'delicate cornici' on the facade. It has been built over more ancient houses owned by the Tedaldi family and in the middle of XVI Century it was owned by the florentine Biffi family, from which its name 'Casa dè Biffi'. Later, the building was owned by the Pagani family. At the level of the second floor the facade is decorated with a coat of arms, maybe coming from the Pagani family. INTERNAL DESCRIPTION The Apartment contains 1 double Bedroom (memory foam mattress equipped, exceptionally comfortable) and 1 complete Bathroom. It is 56 mq wide (538 sqft) and the ceiling, 3.5 meters height (11.5 ft), is built with the original wooded beam, now repainted in white to make the environment up to date and bright. Furniture is a comfortable classic stylish set: many elements and chandeliers are from the owners who lived in as a part of a wider property; they are authentic pieces from italian manufacturing. The entrance is on the Living containing a classic white bookshelf, the sofà and a wall mounted TV. A big French Window opens on a small balcony on the internal court. A classical design carpet, by modern hypoallergenic production, enhance the environment. Then, a big squared archway leads in the Dining area containing a walnut big round table over which is suspended an old Capodimonte Porcelain chandelier: one of the most fine pieces in the apartment. On the walls: a woman face italian engraving, a small tapestry on the table and a french engraving reproducing the Florence Baptistery, in the neighboring Piazza Duomo, hence the name of the apartment.In front of the Dining area there is the kitchen, fully equipped and stocked with new quality appliances: gas stove, extractor fan, traditional oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, and many optionals (plates, pots, cutlery, glasses, cups, kettle, drip coffee maker, toaster and others). It also contains a washing/dryer machine by Siemens.The Bedroom furniture come from the owner family. It is composed of very fine pieces of italian handcraft deriving from the central part of Italy. On the wall, over the head bed, is placed a big italian tapestry. A modern lamp by Kartell, on the top of the chest of drawers, lends transparency and a suggestive light to the environment.
