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 medieval watchtower that can accommodate up to 14 people 10 min from Florence.
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.
Dear Pia and Guido
Thank you so much for such a charming place to stay during our visit to Florence. You have thought of everything to make the Chapel comfortable and beautiful. We appreciated all the kind gestures such as the delicious bread and jam, plus the fresh fruit and flowers. My grandmother used to make figs preserves for me and they were always my favourite. When she died a few years back, her property was sold and, of course, the old fig tree with it. It was quite special to have the fig jam each morning, bringing back memories of her. The restoration of the Chapel is remarkable. There is something unique to enjoy everywhere you look. We took lots and lots of pictures to show to all our friends and family, so who knows, you may see some of them one day!
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.
