Location

Stay in a Renaissance palazzo directly across the river from the Uffizi Gallery, Florence`s most famous museum.

Exterior

The building blends with its Renaissance-age neighbors with the grey stone "pietra serena" accenting its classical proportions. The building is locked and has a doorman during business hours.

Interior

The bright and modern Corvetta penthouse apartment offers fine living in an optimum Florence historic center location. The apartment is remarkably bright and airy with two terraces and a viewing perch too.

On entering the apartment walk up a flight of stairs (approximately 10 steps) to the open plan living and dining room. The living room has two sofas and views to the larger of the two terraces through wide sliding glass door. The walled terrace has impressive views of the Florentine hills above, with a glimpse of beautiful San Miniato church at the top of the hill.

Attractive decorative accessories enhance the room. The open modern kitchen adjoins the living-dining room. A French door adjacent to the kitchen leads out to the second smaller terrace. This little terrace opens at the opposite end to the master bedroom. With its top floor position and many windows and delightful outdoor space we found the Corvetta apartment a restful and very sunny retreat in a prime Florence location.

The first bedroom is on one side of the living room. It has attractive original beamed ceilings that add historic character. A wall of sliding glass windows lead out to a little outdoor area with a spiral staircase where you can enjoying fantastic views of Florence. Although there is no place to sit up here it is delightful that the architects figured out a way to provide access to the remarkable views.

On the other side of the living room, thus providing good privacy for two couples, is the second bedroom. A glass door from the bedroom opens to the little terrace that leads to the kitchen. Enjoy some of the best views in Florence from the bedroom`s window, which overlooks the Arno river, Ponte Vecchio and Vasari Corridor which was Lorenzo de` Medici`s private raised walkway from the Pitti Palace to the ruling Medici family`s offices at what is now the Uffizi Museum.

Next to the second bedroom is a study with a single daybed, desk, closet, dresser and a large window which faces the bigger terrace. This makes for a great solution if you are working remotely. Since the bathrooms are ensuite to the other two bedrooms, the guest who sleeps in the study will share one of the en suite bathrooms.

Corvetta Review

by Daniel S
The apartment was clean, spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable, ... The location couldn't have been better. Short walks to museums, palaces, etc. Many, many nearby restaurants. Washer/dryer in the apartment was extremely useful and convenient. Nothing negative to say.

Corvetta Review

by Jerolyn
The apartment overall exceeded our expectations. It was bright, modern, spacious and clean. The location was ideal. It was close to everything but the surrounding area was quiet. The supermarket located a half block away was very convenient and had a good selection of groceries, cheeses, produce, etc. We have and will continue to recommend Italy Perfect to friends and acquaintances.

This was a great place for our family stay in Florence. We enjoyed the spacious rooms and we were all comfortable. Having a crib and high chair were very helpful with our toddler. The location was fabulous - close enough to walk basically everywhere, but peaceful and quiet for resting.

The perfect apartment for a family of four. Amazing location. A 2 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and all the shops beyond. Great location as it is the quieter area of Florence, also some great local restaurants over this side. Lovely view of Ponte Vecchio from the bedroom window too. Gorgeous balcony area and a viewing area. Security door man from 9-5 which is great. Highly recommend this apartment and this company - our 3rd time. We will be back. Thanks again, Carolyn, Alex, Liv and Steph x [Thank you for your great review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your third stay! We look forward to working with you again. The Italy Perfect Team]

Wonderful location and view - convenient and just far enough away from tourist congestion. Comfortable living space with plenty of room. Just what we were looking for as a casual way to experience Florence.

Corvetta Review

by Kady
The Corvetta is a delightful apartment with the best imaginable location. The two master suites make it a perfect choice for two couples, and the third study with sofa bed is a comfortable addition if the need arises. There were minor maintenance issues that were taken care of immediately (except for the one that we fixed ourselves the first afternoon we were there). The kitchen could have used a little more thought (snacks and coffee but no cutting board? no salt or pepper? no olive oil?) but all in all a first class arrangement. If you want a secure, excellent accommodation within walking distance of virtually everything in Florence the Corvetta is the Italy Perfect choice. [Thank you so much. So sorry some expected items were missing. Had you called, the manager would have come right over with them. Of course you shouldn't have to and we all apologize. The Italy Perfect Team]

Corvetta Review

by DD
The Corvetta was lovely. Well- appointed rooms and kitchen. Very clean, with beautiful hard-wood floors. Plenty of space to relax in. The windows provided great lighting and access to the patio's. The view of the River Arno all the way to the Duomo was spectacular. At night you could hear the music coming from Piazza del Signoria. Outstanding location! Steps from the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Gelato shops, even Palace Pitti was remarkably close. Great location to get everywhere. Short taxi ride to the train station. In 1.5 hours you could be Milan for a day trip! There is also a really close grocery market that stays open till 2100. Depending on when you go, if you have a need for air-conditioning use it wisely it really is the most expensive utility. Make sure you go off the tourist track. The small restaurants that have menus written only in Italian are authentically delicious. Absolutely would refer Italy Perfect to friends. The owners are very responsive if a problem should arise. The building lost Wi-Fi but we were quickly given a "key" to use and had no further issues. You won't be disappointed with the Corvetta or Italy Perfect! I hope to return. [Thank you so much for so enjoying your stay. The Italy Perfect Team]

Corvetta Review

by Joyce & H.T.
We were very pleased with the apartment; it was spacious and elegant with a magnificent view of the Arno River, Ponte Vecchio and the museums across the river. It was within easy walking distance of the major attractions and there were numerous restaurants in the area. They were good but it seems the quality of food seems to have gone down versus our earlier trip to Italy in the mid-80’s. That is not to say the food was bad, there just weren’t any “Ah-Ha” moments. Believe the food would have been better away from the cities. There is an excellent grocery store within a few hundred meters of the apartment that we made good use of. Like the French, the Italians don’t seem to be much on breakfast. Believe we hit the weather just right. A little later and things would have been uncomfortably warm. Support staff in Florence was great! They were very cordial and helpful for the few requests we made. In fact, the same can be said of all the Italian people we ran into. FYI, we had spent a week in Rome before taking the train to Florence. Many of the comments about Florence, especially the restaurants, held true there as well. The only negative we had was our departure from the Florence Airport. No one seemed to be in charge. There were long lines that you really weren’t sure of whether you were in the right one or not. Quite frankly, it reminded us of our days living in the middle east. Guess the best take away is be sure to have plenty of time allocated to airport activities.

Best location, just a few steps from Ponte Vecchio on the Oltro Arno side. Apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Made extensive use of the kitchen due to convenient supermarket just two blocks away. Look forward to returning someday!

We felt that we were in the lap of luxury at the stunning Corvetta aprtment. Thank you Italy Perfect for such a wonderful stay and all the great tips and advice. Our trip went so smoothly. The driver you recommended, Marco, provided great service as did Chef in Tuscany who came and prepared a special celebration dinner for my husband's birthday which we were lucky enough to celebrate during our Florence stay.

Wow. This place is amazing. We are loving, loving this local - spectacular. And the apartment itself is beautiful. The web just doesn't do it justice. The views are stunning.
