Magnificent domes and stately palaces in a cultured city

A small city with a big reputation, Florence is one of our favourite Italian destinations. With more masterpieces than you could see in 10 visits, let alone one, this beautiful Renaissance city was the European centre of politics and art. Today it oozes character, much like our luxury villas in Florence. Stay in a palatial 15th-century palazzo dripping with aristocratic flair, or search for a cosy, but no less indulgent, retreat in the Tuscan countryside overlooking the city.

About Florence and surroundings

Surprisingly small but perfectly formed, history drips from every tiny alleyway, arching doorway and soaring bell tower of Florence. An inspiration for Brunelleschi, Bernini and Michelangelo, art has left an indelible mark throughout the city’s streets and within its countless churches and monasteries. Florence has managed to accelerate into the 21st-century without sacrificing any of its historic appeal. Magnificent domes and stately palaces ensure that this unique city feels like a living museum. Once dilapidated piazzas have been sympathetically revitalised, while contemporary art galleries have sprung up to join the amazing Uffizi Museum and the endless rooms of the Pitti Palace. Towering over the city is the mighty Florentine Duomo, the mother of all terracotta roofs. We highly recommend climbing to the peak of this stately monument at dusk when its pink, green and white marble facade reflects the dying light of the day. Afterwards, you’ll be located right beside Piazza della Signoria, where you can treat yourself to a delicious meal at one of its restaurants. All of our luxury villas in Florence offer easy access to this remarkable city. Combining urban excitement with countryside vistas, you’ll have a distinguished taster of Florence, one of the most famous and unforgettable cities in the world.
