“An exceptional stay!”

This villa is absolutely exceptional in every way! It is in a beautiful building dating, more than likely, from the mid 1400-1500's and has the character to prove it, but with the modern amenities to make you doubt it's age. The villa Buonarroti (Michelangelo's surname) is located on the Oltrarno side of the Arno River. This side of the river is a bit quieter, but this particular street is busy but very safe. The fortress style front door as well as your interior villa door is quite beautiful and secure. The modern windows provide absolute quiet when closed! This side of the river is an authentic locals neighborhood with outstanding restaurants without the crowds and all within walking distance. The villa is well appointed with linens, blankets, necessary toiletries, etc. The villa is three bedrooms laid out over three floors that meander (only 3-4 steps for each floor). Hard to describe...not your typical three story villa: very charming! An elevator will take you to your front door, however. All three bedrooms have their own private bathroom with two of the bathrooms having showers, tub. The hardwood flooring throughout , exposed wood beams and casement style (ultra thick) windows just add to the charm. The terrace is the icing on the cake! We purposely hunted for a villa that would offer a terrace. This terrace is very large, has potted herbs for cooking and quite the view of a nearby cathedral bell tower as well as the Duomo, if you stand on your tippy toes. November was a perfect time to visit Florence with perfect temperatures in the mid to high 60's and very few crowds. This is the perfect villa in every way! The staff of Windows On Italy were exceptional as well! Very easy and accommodating rental, check in and check out process. The greeter stayed in touch with us to arrange our check in despite a Sunday arrival and a very late flight. The entire staff was very wonderful!
