Situated in the heart of Florence and just a few steps from the Duomo, the Accademia, and beautiful Piazza Santissima Annunziata, Via Laura is a perfect quiet spot to retreat to after enjoying these sites as well as Santa Croce's lively nightlife, which is also within walking distance.
Via Laura 32 is a historic home on the ground floor of a building which was a former convent. The structure of the 110 + square meter house is divided into 7 rooms, which include two full bathrooms, a large living area and 3 double bedrooms (one with en suite bathroom).
A fully equipped kitchen, breakfast nook, and private courtyard complete the apartment. The kitchen is stocked with a wide area of culinary gadgets to make your stay as enjoyable as possible (from a Nespresso espresso machine to a carbonated water maker). The private courtyard makes the apartment ideal for smokers and for those wishing to dine comfortably al fresco seated around a beautiful, tiled, wrought iron table.
All rooms are air conditioned and have private entrances. In addition, the 30 square meter living area has a living room and a dining area with dining table situated under a 5 meter high vaulted ceiling which used to be the patio of the former convent.
The house’s interior has many historic features such as decorated coffered ceilings, tiled archways, and stone columns. It is furnished with a very stylish blend of antique and modern pieces and features works of art, such as busts and statues, prints, and ceramics. Having been completely remodeled in 2014 and professionally decorated, it is a very pleasing mix of modern and antique style.
There are cinemas, theaters, restaurants, bars and other night life spots, as well as many tourist attractions close to the apartment. Via Laura 32 can accommodate up to six people and is walking distance from two train stations, Campo Marte and Santa Maria Novella , as well as being easily accessible from the airport in 20 minutes by taxi (25 euro), or by bus (4 euro each). For those arriving by car there is also a secure pay by use garage a few meters from the house with payment to be made on-site (which is notable given that in and around Florence all street parking is metered).
