short and medium term rental
Contessa Angela is an elegant, well appointed and beautifully decorated apartment with historical charm.
Located in a 15th Century palazzo just steps away from Piazza S. Maria Novella, it is situated on the back of the building facing internal courtyards.
Unlike many apartments destined to holiday stays, this apartment has been renovated without taking away its original features and therefore preserves a charm that is missing in other places that have been completely modernised.
Exquisite decor with original antiques and artwork from the early '900s are its main features.
It is available for short or medium term stays, ideal for a few days' holiday or for a sabbatical period.
Quiet and spacious, it is just a few steps away from all the attractions of Florence, in a neighbourhood that is central but not as flooded with tourists as other parts of town.
The apartment is self catering. Two bedrooms with double queen sized bed sleep 4 persons, a fifth person can be accommodated in a cot bed or sofa bed. A large live-in kitchen and a spacious lounge-dining room are perfect for your home cooked dinners!

From AIRBNB, TRIPADVISOR, VRBO
Wow! Where do I start? I’ve stayed at quite a few AirBNB’s and this one has pushed many others aside to take out Number 1 on my list. This place is very special. Every day you stay here you will walk around in wonder discovering new visual treats. It is an exceptional experience of art, culture and hospitality. And it’s so huge! Every door you open will reveal new jewels. (June 2019)
