Overview

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 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!

Kind regards

Residenza Strozzi, Chapel

  • 2 of 5
The property was lovely, the outside was kept up better than the inside of the Chapel. For our 8 day stay we had no clean towels or linens, the place was not that clean and we had a bug outbreak in the kitchen, ants. I would not recommend this place to friends or family.

Absolutely loved it!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a hidden gem surrounded by beautiful gardens, formal and informal, and right next door to a lovely 17th century villa. After a day of visiting Florence returning to the quiet and peace of our lovely place was an absolute pleasure. Even the short walk from the bus station was enjoyable. The apartment is quiet, very clean and shabby chic. The bedroom is uniquely lovely and the bed is quite comfortable. The kitchen is small but adequate for two people. Guido was helpful in all ways and provided maps and directions for the entire area. We loved our stay and would definitely book here again if we were in the area.

Unique/Private Apartment very close to Florence

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay at the Capella at Residenzia Strozzi last week! Guido was very helpful and welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. The apartment is plenty of space for a couple. It is a one-of-a-kind experience to get to stay in a chapel that has been fully converted to an apartment with an updated bathroom (great water pressure!) and a separate living/kitchen area equipped w/ books, CDs, and some breakfast foods in the kitchen.

There is very easy driving or walking access within 5-10 minutes of a busstop with free parking so getting into Florence to do anything was very convenient.

The property is just beautiful, a picturesque view of Tuscany! We would stay there again if we return to Florence.

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Chapel for a week in mid-October and enjoyed every minute. Guido and Pia are brilliant hosts who are always on hand with advice and tips for travelling into Firenze and around Tuscany. The location is exceptional, starting with the tree lined driveway up to the properties, the garden areas, the refurbished Chapel along with the other buildings all contribute to the very charming and tranquil setting. Getting into and out of town was very easy with the frequent public bus about a 10 minute walk. The Chapel was very clean, well appointed, the bed very comfortable the kitchen is small but did the trick as we cooked several dinners. Sitting outside in the garden with a glass of wine in the early evening looking out over the beautiful Tuscan landscape was one of our favorite things – we could not imaging spending the week in amongst the hustle, bustle and noise of the city centre.
We greatly recommend this place and would love to come again !

A delightful vacation for a very tired couple!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the great joy of staying in the beautiful chapel. This lovely historic property is removed from the tourist traffic in Florence and we both loved the peace and quiet. Guido was the perfect host, there when we needed him and otherwise nonintrusive. We had also come to enjoy the culture of Florence and that was easy because the local bus took us directly to the center of the city. We hope to be able to return some 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.
