The Carmen apartment is a large loft located in the historic central Florentine district of Santa Croce, a short distance from the main cultural attractions and artworks that have given Florence its great reputation. It is laid out over three floors and is well-adapted to accommodate a large family or a group of friends.
Accessed via the ground floor of a centrally located historic building, the Carmen apartment is laid out over several floors and has a modern and dynamic structure. Recently refurbished and decorated with elegance and style, the apartment has cosy terracotta and wood floors and features double barrelled vaulted ceilings. The interior design is modern and functional without betraying the antique charm of the building.
The living-room is an open space with high ceilings, furnished with a sofa-bed (for the 5th and 6th guests), armchairs, coffee table and TV, whilst the open-plan kitchen adjoining the living-room is compact but modern, and perfectly equipped for cooking enthusiasts. On the same floor there is also a bathroom with a shower, all in pastel colours. Terracotta stairs lead to a mezzanine level overlooking the living-room where there is a comfortable double bed and a practical chest of drawers. A small bannister and another set of stairs leads from the living-room to the floor below, where there is another bedroom with two single beds and a wooden wardrobe.

Santa Croce is the eastern edge of the historical center along the Arno river and takes the name from the Florence’s pantheon and one of its most remarkable churches. This neighborhood provide a rare glimpse of workaday Florence – an area few tourist penetrate, with lively markets and tiny workshops .
In addition to the great Santa Croce church and its museum, the other main cultural attractions in this part of the city are the Bargello Palace, which house one of Italy’s most important museum , the Museo Horne, a pleasing collection of art treasures and the Casa Buonarroti, the former home of Michelangelo.
Piazza dei Ciompi is the venue of Mercato delle Pulci, the flea market where you can buy interesting items at modest cost. A short distance to the east, is the Mercato St. Ambrogio, the city centre’s main food market after San Lorenzo. Be aware that the stallholders bring their prices down in the last hour of trading!
You will also find the largest selection of shops, bars and restaurants here. These include the city’s three finest and most expensive restaurants – Cibreo, Pinchiorri and Alle Murate, but also a variety of good mid-price options. By night, this is the liveliest part of town and, with most of its streets pedestrianised and many of the buildings illuminated, the perfect venue for an after-dinner stroll.
