2 bedroom / 2 bathroom. Sleeps 6.
This gorgeous gem of an apartment has an unbeatable location, central to everything but tucked away in a quiet little courtyard. Its elegance is matched by all of the comfort and convenience it offers. It’s the perfect place to call home for a little (or a long) while. Right in the heart of town, you are just a 3-5 minute walk from 3 small grocers, 5 or 6 cafes, the main cathedral, 10 restaurants, and a number of shops. It doesn’t get more central than this!
This top-floor apartment features traditional Tuscan ceilings with exposed wood beams and tiles. The living area, decorated with tasteful antiques, has two armchairs and a new couch that converts to a comfortable sofa bed for an additional 2 persons. From here, you access the charming loft-level master bedroom with queen-sized bed. The living room balcony windows overlook the lovely flower-filled courtyard below and provide a ton of natural light if desired (they also have full shutters to block out light entirely if preferred).
The large, well-equipped kitchen features granite counter tops, a full-sized refrigerator, stove top, coffeemaker, electric kettle, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, and dining table. It is fully equipped with cookware and serving utensils, and we provide all of your starter materials like olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar.
The upstairs master bathroom, beautifully decorated in red marble tile, has a wonderful skylight and is equipped with a bathtub + shower, sink, toilet, and bidet. One of its most unique features is a lovely custom countertop, built from cabinets salvaged from an apothecary. A new washing machine is located upstairs in a utility room adjacent to the master bedroom.
The smaller second bedroom offers sleeping for two people in twin beds and has its own private bathroom (the beds can be combined to create a double upon request). This portion of the apartment can be closed off with a locked door and even has its own entrance if desired, creating two totally separate bedroom quarters.
Both bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning and are furnished with all new 160 thread count 100% cotton linens, your choice of down or synthetic filled duvets, and your choice of synthetic or down pillows.
The apartment is independent (not shared with any other units in the building). It has independent heating & A/C, its own washing machine, and access to the elevator shared by the other residents of the building.
Interaction with the Hosts
As much or as little as you like! One of us is always available for questions, or we can leave you to explore on your own. Whatever you prefer.
Other things to note
The main bedroom area is on the loft level overlooking the living area.
When 2 guests book we generally assume 1 bedroom/1 bathroom occupancy; if this is not the case, please message me before booking. For long-term stays we can offer a discount to parties of 2 that only want to use 1 bed/1 bath; we close off the second bedroom/bathroom, which allows us to save on cleaning and utility costs and pass the savings on to you! If you prefer to use Airbnb, the unit is also available here.
*Please note* that due to extreme volatility in energy prices, we require guests to be careful in their energy consumption, which includes turning off AC and heat when leaving the apartment for the day and, when possible, using large appliances (running the dishwasher, etc) in the nighttime hours. Beginning November 1, 2022, we will charge for additional gas usage above the threshold established by the government. We will read the gas meter together on arrival and the night before departure and will calculate the difference owed, which will be payable before departure. As long as you are dressed appropriately and you remember to turn off the heat when you leave, there should be no need to be concerned about gas usage.
