A full history available here: www.limonaia-capponi.com
A contemporary studio apartment in a historic central Florence Limonaia. Located in a quiet private garden behind one of the city's most important Palazzos. The apartment has a private entrance, is compact with a queen sized sleeping loft that is reached via a short but relatively steep staircase. A fully equipped galley style kitchen, closets and large bathroom with walk in shower and bidet. Our apartment is suitable for a single or a couple. Much reading material, art filled walls, iPod dock, Sky cable TV, DVD player and WI-FI. This a safe and secure location with a daily doorman and the closest neighbor is the Four Seasons Hotel... A mobile phone to use while here can be arranged. We live onsite so if any little situations arise they can be dealt with quickly.
My wife and I are Americans that have lived in Italy for 13 years and travel extensively. We have tried to make our rental exactly what we would expect if we were the guests. For a city center location it is very quiet and peaceful. The complete garden and the benches around the fountain are for use by our guests but there is no outdoor space for dining/Bar-B-Q or sunbathing.
Unfortunately the mariner stairs to the sleeping loft makes this unsuitable for people with limited mobility.
Location: Central Florence, 1 block from Santissima Annunziata, two blocks from Pzz. San Marco and 3 blocks from The Duomo. Easy walk to anywhere.

I am an American businessman that came to Italy for the summer... that was 12 years ago.
We have fully renovated two historic properties and enjoy all that Italy has to offer.
We live here with our two younger daughters.
Our Limonaia is a one of a kind and we feel privileged to be the first family that calls it home in its 350+ year life and its current custodians.
