You would never know you were only five minutes away from the heart of Florence when you stroll through the manicured gardens and take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool of this peaceful villa/palace.
Interior are grand and sumptuous as befits a palace but not over the top like so many of Florence’s hotels.
Antiques (with some reproductions), Oriental carpets, and painted murals on high ceilings are featured in the public areas and the guest rooms, which are well appointed with creamy white marble bathrooms.
A solarium on the roof, which is available to guests, has wonderful views of Florence.
From May to September dining is at the “Verandah Restaurant” out by the pool.
