The Space

It is situated in a protected and peaceful area of more than 20 hectares, just outside of the centre of Florence, at the foot of the hill of Settignano, in a marvellous environment, surrounded by meadows and olive groves.
A pine-lined avenue gives access to the apartment.
Unique, historical and very chic.
The Chapel was built in the eighteenth century and restored in neoclassical style. Originally a private chapel of a famous Renaissance family, the one-bedroom accommodation has recently been carefully restored to its original state and retains its original beauty and charm. The Chapel has been fully decorated with antique furniture by the owners who live nearby and has a wonderful atmosphere.
The interior is about 50 m2 (530 sqft). There is one double bedroom (queen-size bed) located in the chapel's original nave decorated with original frescoes, a living room with full kitchenette located in the former sacristy, and one bathroom with shower located in the former confessional.
This house offers a remarkable number of extras: air-conditioning, TV (regional channels), CD-stereo, DVD-player, free Internet wifi access, cooker with 2 hobs, fridge, microwave, coffee percolator, ample garden, BBQ, parking inside the property, electronic entrance gate to the estate, washing machine (located outside in a courtyard). In the living room you will find art books, travel magazines, city maps, museum and restaurant guides.
The Chapel is independent from the owners villa, who live next door and it has a wonderful atmosphere. It is particularly suitable for a couple looking for a refined cultural experience, and who want to stay in a unique historic place.
The owners occasionally allow four people to stay in the Chapel. An additional bed (1.40 x 2 m) can be put into the living room.

House Rules

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. There are two bus stops in walking distance: One bus stop is approx. 300 m from the house and buses go to the centre regularly every 15 minutes; the other bus stop is approx. 900 m from the house (with a parking for your car right next to it) and buses go every 3 minutes. A 15 minutes bus ride will take you into the city centre to the Cathedral, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio ... Therefore, this accommodation is well suited if you wish to travel without a car. 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 is about 1.5 km away and a bank, a post office and a pharmacy about 1 km.
If you travel by car the villa's location at the south-eastern edge of Florence is a good starting point for going on excursions to the Chianti region, to Siena or to the coast, as the feeder road to the autostrada highway (exit Firenze-Sud) is only 3 km distant and can be reached easily without having to pass through the city centre. This accommodation is - compared to the usual prices in Florence - very reasonably priced and exceptional too for its quiet location and excellent facilities. A fine address in Florence!
