Boccaccio Cottage

Italy - Tuscany villas - Florence

Basic information

Available from January to December. Location Countryside - Sleeps 6 - Bedrooms 0 - Bathrooms 3 - Pool

The iron gate at the entrance to the property opens to reveal an enchanting garden to its visitors, lovingly tended in every detail, embracing Boccaccio Cottage in a floral frame.
That scene is still more enriched by a superb view over Florence and the Duomo, enjoyed from the hillside of Settignano where the property is situated.
The property is located within walking distance of the picturesque village of Settignano, overlooking Florence from the east and often chosen in the past by artists and aristocrats as their residence. Its immediate surroundings are rural but it is nevertheless a mere 15 minute walk from the heart of the city that gave birth to Renaissance.
Being on a hillside, the property is constructed on a number of levels, enabling guests staying at Casa Boccaccio to enjoy private use of the garden surrounding the house, quite separately from the owner?s house and two other vacation cottages (Casa Buonarroti and Casa Tommaseo), which also belong to the same large estate.
The use of the large swimming pool is shared with visitors renting the other two cottages.
All internal spaces have been carefully refurbished and decorated by the owner, who welcomes her guests personally, sharing her knowledge of the area with them and providing all sorts of useful information.
Larger groups of up to 12 persons can also rent Casa Tommaseo, sleeping 4 and 2 guests respectively.
