Location & History

Florence Design Apartment is situated on the first floor of a residential building of nine apartments located in a very safe, leafy neighbourhood outside Florence’s busy historic centre. The apartment was newly constructed in 2013 and the fit out and furnishings done in consultation with  Grilli Interior Design (http://www.grilliarredamenti.it/). It is well equipped with quality materials, contemporary, and spacious. The location offers easy walking access to the historic centre as well as proximity to the Chianti countryside. (While the apartment is very spacious, only two guests may stay overnight.)

The Owners

We (Shawne & Ray) own the apartment and live in Australia. Prior to purchasing the apartment, we took annual vacations to Tuscany but since becoming owners, we return often for extended stays. We have an extensive knowledge of Tuscany, a great appreciation for the cultural richness, beauty of countryside, and we love the Tuscan lifestyle.

The apartment is furnished and equipped to a high standard both aesthetically and with respect to comfort. When we are not in Florence, we make the apartment available for short-term rental by discriminating vacationers or business travellers. Apart from this website, we use just one listing service. We have relatively few guests throughout the year – just as we prefer.
