About B&B Palazzi

WHO WE ARE

Hello everyone, we are two Florentine brothers Mario and Alessio.
Together we decided to restore the house where we spent all our childhood and adolescence and to make it a comfortable, charming Bed and Breakfast like the homes of the past.
Every day Serafina, Mario’s sister in law and Alessio’s wife will help to manage the work and the guests to feel at home.
Once the present home was a part of the Villa Corsini and in the seventies it was restored with taste, love and respect by Alfredo and Simonetta, our parents.
This year we have decided to make a second restoration of the house especting and keeping unchanged the originality and style of it, but making a necessary efficiency of the plants and a modernization of the structures so as to be able to accommodate in an extremely comfortable way anyone that has the curiosity and the desire to stay in our .... B & B Palazzi!

PRESENTATION OF THE STRUCTURE

B&B Palazzi is located in an area called “Castello” in Florence in a house of the 15th century, which is of historical and artistic interest; this fascinating, romantic place is situated at the foot of Mount Morello and it is of high landscape value for the presence of the magnificent Medici Villas (Reale di Castello , Reale di Careggi, Petraia and Corsini), which have recently been acknowledged (June 23rd, 2013) as Unesco world heritage. They are surrounded by the wonderful setting of the Florentine hills and Mount Morello, rich of hiking trails.
The structure is far from the chaotic city traffic and the high cement buldings of some outskirts, but it is in a relaxing place where to spend an unforgettable, quiet stay.

ROOMS

The house has four large, shining rooms.
The Royal room is the most beautiful and elegant: it has a bathroom and two large windows, one overlooking the garden with the sight to the Medici Villa Petraia and the hills of Mount Morello and one over the private road leading to the Villa Corsini. The room is furnished in Venetian style. The Corsini room has a private bathroom in front of its entrance door; it is a nice room with two single beds that can be joined, if necessary, to become a double bed. It has a large window overlooking the ancient, silent narrow street, made with old stones, which leads to the Villas and from which you can clearly see the coat of arms of the Corsini family.
The Petraia room is a romantic, friendly room with a double bed and a single one and with a large French window overlooking the Villa Petraia, Mount Morello and the garden of the house.
The Quiete room is a bedroom with a double bed with a window overlooking Mount Morello and the garden of the house. These last two bedrooms have a shared bathroom.
The four rooms are equipped with all the main comforts: Smart 32'' TV, Wi-Fi ultra-fast fiber internet, air conditioning, biological courtesy set, bath big towel and towels, luggage racks, additional bed for children up to 5 years, use of ironing board and iron, use of laptop for internet browsing, luggage storage, parking, kitchen use on request, relaxing room for reading and board games, use of the garden with barbecue.
Walking or mountain bikes, both for men and women are available to guests free of charge with a caution from € 70,00 to € 150,00 (it depends on the model of the chosen bicycle).
These are equipped with lights, padlocks and chains. It will also be possible to rent on-site e-bikes, carry out maintenance work at our workshop (we adhere to the FIAB “Albergabici” cycle touring circuit) and to have a guide for the different excursions. A daily cleaning service is provided in the rooms (linen is changed after the third day).
In addition, some services are provided for a fee: an extra bed on request: € 25,00, the bar fridge (prices are shown on a special list in each room), the laundry and ironing (for personal linen the price is to be agreed according to the quantity and weight) and access to Netflix-type Pay TV.

MAIN PLACES OF ARTISTIC HISTORICAL INTEREST

The most important Medici Villas near the structure:
Villa Di Castello (or Villa Reale Di Castello) restored by Vasari and surrounded by a magnificent garden designed by Tribolo, the seat of he Accademia della Crusca;
Villa Petraia which is considered, not wrongly, one of the jewels of the city, for the excellence of its precious paintings and furnishings and for its good position in the landscape;
Villa Corsini, a beautiful villa built in Baroque style of which our bed and breakfast was an annex;
Villa Reale Di Careggi, 10 minutes by car (3 kilometers), which was built in the first half of the fifteenth century and restored by Michelozzo for Cosimo II, who died here in 1464.
The area is also rich of other important historical-architectural villas: Villa Il Pozzino, Villa La Quiete and the most famous Villa del Bel Riposo, where the writer Carlo Lorenzini called "Collodi" lived for a long time. He certainly took inspiration from these places and its inhabitants, for the drafting of his literary masterpiece "Pinocchio", whose adventures have been translated into many languages and known all over the world.
Since 1974, the famous Accademia della Crusca has been located at the Villa Medicea di Castello. It is an Italian institution that gathers scholars, linguistic and philological experts of the Italian language and is therefore one of the most prestigious linguistic institutions in Italy and in the world.
