|An ancient residence for your stay in Florence|
Residenza Strozzi, located southeast of Florence, on the historic Strozzi-Riccardi estate, enjoys the best of both worlds: convenient access to Florence and the peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside. 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 villa and the other residences. The area has many accessible services and is charming and green like the most typical Tuscan countryside. The residence is the perfect place to start your holiday in Tuscany. The Cathedral, Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Museum are within easy reach, as are the nearby little towns of Fiesole and Settignano.
