SCUDERIA - FORMER RIDING STABLES OF A RENAISSANCE VILLA - SLEEP 4

Campo di Marte Villa Rental Photos and Description

Enjoys the best of 2 worlds: Florence's centre, peace of the Tuscan countryside

It offers 4 different accommodations: the Chapel and the Scuderia derive from the former Chapel and the former riding Stables of the Villa. They are self catering apartments in a unique location. The nearby 'Casa del Pozzo', the House with a well, is an independent house in the medieval village of Corbignano overlooking Florence with a spectacular view. Our last suggestion is a lovely apartment in the village of Settignano in the same area.

There are two bus stops in walking distance. A 15 minutes bus ride will take you into the city centre.

Stroll to the 'Ponte a Mensola' quarter, which is only 300 m. away, where you will find a grocery, a breakfast bar, restaurants, a tobacconist, a newsagent, a hairdresser and one of the two bus stops. A very large supermarket, a bank, a post office and a pharmacy are about 1 km away.

The Cathedral, Palazzo Vecchio, all museums are within easy reach, as are the nearby small towns of Fiesole and Settignano. The hill of Settignano, just behind Residenza Strozzi, preserves some of the most attractive Florentine villas.

Wonderful walks lead towards Settignano, Corbignano and, through of wood of cypresses, as so far as Fiesole. It was in these hills designed by man that Giovanni Boccaccio, Desiderio da Settignano, Bernardo and Antonio Rossellino, Michelangelo, Leigh Hunt, Charles Armitage Brown, Janet Ross, Edward Hutton, Mark Twain, Niccolò Tommaseo, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Bernardo Barenson and many others found their inspiration.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a wonderful time we have had in the “Stables” . It's such an idiosyncratic and equally comfortable apartment. Guido you have been such a friendly and helpful host. “The Stables” is so well equipped with everything we wanted. What a lovely place to stay it has been. Dinners in the courtyard was truly memorable. Thank you for providing a place to have such a unique stay.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren ages 16 and 13 were spent two wonderful weeks at the Residenza Strozzi. We stayed in the chapel, and our daughter's family stayed in the scuderia. What a wonderful experience! Guido and Pia made us all feel very welcome. She had made breads and cookies and prepared us a welcome basket.
The location is very peaceful. It is outside the historic district that can be reached by bus.
The gardens are a welcome relief after a day of sight seeing.
Guido and Pia put a lot of thought into renovating both the chapel and the scuderia.
Everything was very clean and well kept. A lot of work went into the renovations.
The bus is a short walk away as is a grocery store and a restaurant.
It was a vacation all 6 of us loved and would most certainly return.
Thank you Guido and Pia!

A TUSCAN DELIGHT

  • 5 of 5
What you see on the Internet you get in real life.This is a very classy,comfortable and well located Villa in the Heart of Tuscany.
A very rural atmosphere and yet just on the outskirts of Florence.Most local amenities are within walking distance and most of the important tourist spots are within an easy hours drive of the Villa.
Great dinning inside and out. Good kitchen and bathroom,comfortable beds and linen and all very tastefully done.The restoration and conversion of the Stables into an apartment is a stroke of genius and this accommodation is unique in composition and character.This is truly a home from home.
Guido and Pia are the perfect hosts willing and able to assist with anything.
We recommend this Villa for short stays or long.The longer the better for us.

A CHARMING HOME NEAR FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
The Scuderia is a welcoming and well kept home, tastefully decorated in a haven of greenery. It is equipped with modern comforts (air conditioning, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and Microwave-...) while being very original because of the stale stables were kept. The garden is suberbe and calm, you can make the barbecue or ping-pong. The host, Guido and Pia are very friendly and give advice. The center is 20 minutes by bus, very convenient.
Only downside: the Scuderia is unique on two levels so there is no real privacy.
I recommend this rental to all my friends who go to Florence.

Residenza Strozzi is the ideal opportunity for anyone who wants to visit Florence and other beautiful ancient towns of Tuscany like Siena and Lucca and also wants to relax in a typical Tuscan countryside.All accommodation, even though they preserve the ancient beauty and history, offer privacy, space and modern comforts.

Here you live in a green resort, far away from the bustle of the city with its humming motorbikes and honking cars. While the location is far from disturbance, it is only a short bus ride into the city.
