Apartment BRUNELLESCHI - "3 bedrooms - 2 bathrooms - up to 9 persons"
The apartment sets over 2 levels, it is very big and elegant; it sleeps up to 9 persons (3 double beds + 3 single beds) in 3 charming bedrooms.
The total surface is 170 square metres (about 1850 suare feet) + a 200 square metres private garden.
The apartment is completely independent (private entrance).
The living room and the dining room have direct access to the private patio-loggia and private garden.
Just like the other 2 apartments, also the apartment Brunelleschi has interiors characterized by stone walls, beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, brick arches and brick niches.
Because of the thick stone walls, the apartment is always cool (night and day) even when outside is hot.
The furniture is carefully selected with antiques and ornaments in order to create a warm and homelike atmosphere.
To add extra warmth…the walls are decorated with photos and engravings that represent Florence monuments and Tuscany landscapes… and with several handmade cross stitching, created by Paola.

"" We had the privilege to stay in Apartment BRUNELLESCHI in late June 2014.
Niccolo was great with getting everything set up for us. We had fresh groceries in the refrigerator when we arrived, and Niccolo's tomato sauce and spaghetti on the table.
Paula was wonderful as well. Helped us with lots of information about shopping, where to go for the local market, etc. Both speak excellent English and are just genuinely nice people.
The apartment itself is very roomy. We were a group of seven and it it was very comfortable.
We ate good American breakfasts every day using the fully equipped kitchen and large dining tables, both inside and outside... the pool was very refreshing after long days of sightseeing in Florence and the surrounding areas.
There are herbs and flowers everywhere and the Villa itself sits on the side of a hill, with other hills all around. The views are beautiful. "" Dan on Tripadvisor
