Beautiful large villa kept in good condition used for years as a hotel for international customers in the immediate vicinity of the historic center of Florence, remaining in the prestigious area of Poggio Imperiale. Equipped with all comforts such as swimming pool, tennis court, parking and large park. But what makes the difference is a decidedly fantastic panorama of Brunelleschi's dome and the historic center of Florence from almost all the areas.
One of the most beautiful areas of Florence, hilly position, going towards Piazzale Michelangelo, out of the chaos of the historic center but always within easy reach of all tourist attractions, which can be reached on foot, by bicycle or even by car. Convenient location for exploring other cities and towns close to Florence and enjoying nature after a walk through the center. Airport can be reached in 20 minutes, while Santa Maria Novella Station only in 10 minutes.
The main villa overlooks the grounds of the property and houses most of this charming hotel. Large entrance with sliding glass doors leads to the ground floor where there is a large hall with reception, a beautiful and spacious dining area with panoramic windows from where you can see the park and the historic center of Florence; very classic and refined style bar where it is pleasant to spend an evening with friends or alone after a trip around the city. While on the first and second floor there are the guest rooms, all with their private bathroom and equipped with air conditioning; nine of the bedrooms have large panoramic terraces furnished with taste and care. Part of the villa is used as the owners' private home and has additional large spaces – two living areas with fireplace, three bedrooms with two bathrooms, kitchen and wardrobe. On the basement floor but with window there is a large professional kitchen consisting of two rooms and several small rooms used for storing products, as well as a fridge room. Kitchen area is conveniently connected by the staircase with restaurant.
In the annex, recently renovated, on the ground floor there are three large suites for families, while the basement is currently used to store the necessary materials for the hotel. There are also small outbuildings for the staff, technical rooms both for the light / gas plant and for swimming pool.
State and finishes
This small family-run luxury hotel has always been treated with care to details by its owners; it is currently furnished in an elegant, classic Florentine style, but with every comfort of a modern structure.
Tall cypresses, palm trees, many flowers of all colors surround this beautiful villa creating a truly unique atmosphere, a green island full of privacy, where is situated also a large tennis court and an irregular shaped swimming pool. A large garden may be revaluated to create additional spaces that can be used for tourists, such as a children's playground; space for an outdoor gym or a bar under the open sky.
A beautiful property for those who would like to continue a well-established accommodation business with inclusion on all tourist portals in one of the most requested places in Florence; a hotel that can remain a mid-range hotel or that can become a real boutique hotel just for selected. But it is not to be underestimated the possibility of transforming it nto a private residence of the highest level at the gates of the historic center of Florence.
