CAPPONCINA - UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE WARM ATMOSPHERE - SLEEP UP 5/6

Campo di Marte Apartment 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.

COULD HAVE BEEN NICE, BUT ....

  • 2 of 5
We give 2 stars for the outstanding view (it is wonderfully situated) and because the staff and owner were very friendly and tried to be helpful. But we would never stay there again. We had a constant problem with the extreme bad foul smell coming from the canalization that really spoiled our vacation. In addition to that the rest of the monastery was rent to a large group of students who were like everywhere - we had almost no privacy. They sang loudly to the guitar - every night until midnight. - The apartment was very clean, the kitchen nice. But there was no living room - as the description claims -, only a narrow hall with some chairs and it had a kind of souterrain feeling that we didn`t like. There was a bunk bed in the 3rd sleeping room - and instead of a 7th bed a sofa in the kitchen. But the little Italian village next to the monastery is very beautiful, with a great winery and nice atmosphere.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry that a bad smell problem, caused by the failure of the septic tank that could not be serviced during their stay, spoiled the guest’s holiday. We always consider our guests' feedback an excellent mean for us to improve our level of service. After verifying the impossibility to completely solve the problem, a refund for the inconvenience was offered to the guests and they accepted.
At the moment, Casa del Monastero is no longer available through the options and the apartments of Residenza Strozzi and therefore this review has nothing to do with the new apartment in the list, Casa Colline, which replaced it among the offered accommodations.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time at Casa Monastero. The three bedrooms and kitchen were just right for our party of 6. The setting and views are beautiful and the village of Settigano is a short walk up the hill to cafes, church, and bus stop. The staff was very helpful and attentive to our requests and would definitely stay again when we visit Florence.

ESTANCIA CASA DEL MONASTERIO

  • 5 of 5
Hemos estado en la casa del monasterio del 18 al 25 de Julio de 2011. La casa es muy acogedora, el lugar es muy, muy tranquilo, a las afueras de Florencia. Hay buen acceso a Florencia, tanto en coche (se tarda 5 minutos) como en un autobus que se coge muy cerca de la de la casa y tarda unos 15 min.
El propietario ha sido muy amable con nosotros y la estancia muy agradable. Creo que es una buena opción para visitar Florencia y la Toscana, sobre todo para familias.

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.

Today immersed in the Florence surroundings, the area offers characteristic landscapes of rolling hills dotted with olive groves and groups of cypress trees that surround the many historical villas built on its hill. Settignano has always been considered the perfect place for periods of rest, study, and meditation. In addition it is rich in itineraries of art, nature and trekking trails. Settignano lies in the green hills that encircle Florence, like a giant Romantic frame for the trim Renaissance architecture of the city below and has left an indelible mark on the art and literature of the Western world.
