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.
