The Hayloft at “ La Federiga” is a legacy of the agricultural world that remained unchanged from 1800 up to 1960, close to the historical heart of Florence (km 4,5 from the centre of the city)
“La Federiga” is a small group of houses situated in the area of Legnaia. Like the small villages San Quirico and Legnaia and their ancient churches, the hamlet of La Federiga rose up along one of the principle roads called Via Pisana. Our grandparents respectfully called it “strada maestra” (the main road) and it led off from Porta San Frediano, one of the gates of the fourteenth-century walls of Florence. Since Roman times, Via Pisana linked Florence to Pisa across the plains of the river Arno.
For the owner Isabella, an architect, the hayloft is a memento from her grandparents and it is situated within a garden, along with the owner’s house and the stalls, which she restored for use as her office.
Within this “green oasis”, the hayloft is sheltered from the summer heat and the noise of the street by an ivy-clad wall. A rare old strawberry vine creeps all around the door of the entrance. Fig-trees, diospyroskaki, carob trees and rosemary and sage bushes trim the path paved with the original stones.
Isabella has completely restored the two-storied hayloft and furnished it elegantly. A truly authentic experience of living in Florence not only as a tourist but like a true Florentine.
