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.

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.
