Stay close to Florence and still enjoy the atmosphere of the Tuscany countryside! The Settignano Suites offer two elegantly furnished accommodations within walking distance of a small and picturesque village.
Located in a small borgo with spectacular views, each is carefully renovated and beautifully appointed. Florence is only six kilometers away, and can be reach in fifteen minutes by a convenient bus stop. There are 1.5 hectares (3.7 acres) of grounds that are surrounded by olive and fruit trees with a beautiful view of Florence.
A new swimming pool (14m x 7m, depth 1.55m) has just been added!
The units (Settignano... 1, 6 guests and Settignano 2, 6 guests) can be rented together for a group up to 12 guests. If rented together, they provide a comfortable and hospitable experience of Tuscany.
Special note: Settignano 2 can be rented with exclusive use of the full property if it is rented for three weeks or more and Settignano 1 is not booked.
Settignano 2 rents from Saturday to Saturday.
The houses are classically Tuscan and in the past were used to store young lemon trees during the winter and olives during the fall harvest. They are now converted into the most comfortable country homes, where you can find a perfect balance between modern and traditional furnishings. Each unit offers a tasteful and private outdoor space for relaxation and al fresco dining.
Settignano was the home of three of the most famous sculptors of the Renaissance – Desiderio da Settignano, Bernardo and Antonio Rossellino. As a young man, Michelangelo lived here, in a farmhouse that is now called Villa Michelangelo.
The owner, a famous interior designer, lives in a house on the property. She speaks fluent English and French and is happy to assist the guests during their stay. She has a very well behaved and peaceful dog, who also lives on the property.
