Set in a palazzo in the desirable district of Oltrarno, the Bettina apartment provides an elegant, comfortable and central home setting for your stay in Florence. Blue and cream colored furnishings create a tranquil atmosphere, with large windows drawing in light for an airy, open feeling. The traditional terracotta floors and high wooden ceilings reveal the building’s history beautifully, offset with stylish contemporary touches and elegant furnishings.
The open plan of the main floor includes an inviting living room, a dining area with a beautiful antique table, and a small but fully functional kitchen.
Steps lead up to the open mezzanine above the main level, where you will find an open bedroom and ensuite bathroom with shower. Fragments of original frescoes decorate the walls of the bedroom.
Setting and surroundings:
The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district, just across the Arno River. The neighborhood is more residential, yet it is within an easy walk of desirable sites like the Uffizi Gallery, the Ponte Vecchio and the Pitti Palace. Once known for its artists’ studios, the area is now home to fine restaurants, artisan workshops, and stylish boutiques selling antiques, leather goods, and custom made furniture.
The Bettina apartment is tucked into the charming 16th century Palazzo Medici. This historic palace houses seven additional luxury apartments that can be rented together for a large group, or occupied independently.
