Accomodations

This charming former residence of an ancient fourteenth century family is situated in Florence near the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Pitti, Boboli Gardens, and Santo Spirito. A quiet area of the city center, in the heart of one of the traditional Florentine quarters rich in artisan shops, antique shops, and typical restaurants. An excellent starting point to visit the city but also to breathe in the Renaissance atmosphere. All of the apartments of the palace have been recently restored and particular attention has been paid to architectural details and a mix of modern and antique furniture. Each apartment has fully equipped kitchenettes and dining areas in each apartment. You will feel comfortable knowing that you can shop the local food markets and choose to grab a bite to eat from your fridge or go out to a local eatery to experience something different.
