The Perfect Florentine Retreat is portion of a Villa of an old tuscan family , surrounded by gardens in a secluded area at only 12 minutes from Forte Belvedere and Boboli Garden entrance, 20 minutes walking distance from the Old Bridge and Piazzale Michelangelo. Via San Leonardo is a old road and a pleasant walk in the one of the most interesting antique area of Florence. The composer Tchaikovskij loved Florence and Florentine climate and spent his winters in a villa in Via San Leonardo, less than 100 meters away from us. The famous italian painter of post-macchiaioli, Ottone Rosai had his studio here. From here you do not need a car for visiting Florence ( historical city center is off-limits for car). Bus stops are at 100 meters. Parking is free in our private garden . Owner lives in the other portion of the Villa and she is glad to help you with maps, informations, booking museum tickests.... The Villa is very close (100 m.) to the historic Chalet Fontana, caffé restaurant recently restored with great charme; excellent cuisine, splendid park. La Terrazza del Principe is at 250 m from house, restaurant with beautiful view, especially at sunset. At the top of Arcetri's hill at 600 m. from house there are the old restaurant-trattoria Omero, serving typical tasteful tuscan food.More

Lucia is the most welcoming, friendly and thoughtful host. Her apartments are a beautiful, characterful, place to base yourself; just a short walk from the main centre of Florence. The retreat has a lot of glowing reviews and they are well-deserved. We would not hesitate...More
