La Magione degli AlighieriGallery
This apartment is located in a prestigious historical Villa, set on Via Delle Forbici, an exclusive residential street outside Florence's city centre. The area is very quiet and surrounded by gardens and nature, as it's located halfway between the city and the Florentine hills.
The venue is extraordinarily poetic and charming: a wonderful Italian garden surrounds the Villa, while the interiors have been recently restored with special attention in maintaining the historical and typical features of a noble family's country Villa. This is also a very special location thanks to its connection with the Alighieri family: yes, Dante's family used to stay here! An exceptional chance to really walk in footsteps of the “Sommo Poeta”.
This apartment can accommodate up to 10 guests.
The Villa is set on two levels and is surrounded by a beautiful private garden, equipped with outdoor furniture, umbrella and dining table. Private parking spaces are provided.
The kitchen, fully renovated and well equipped, is stocked with anything you may need to cook your own meals. An elegant dining room can be found right next door.
The living area is spacious and bright, featuring cosy sofas, armchairs and a flat-screen TV. From the living room, you'll have access to the wonderful covered patio, equipped with cosy sofas and chairs for you to be able to enjoy pleasant moments overlooking the green gardens outside.
All bedrooms are large in size and charming in the atmosphere, decorated with great taste and Florentine elegance. All rooms are equipped with comfortable queen size beds, flat-screen TV, dresser and closet. Five bathrooms (some of them en-suite), recently renovated and fitted with large walk-in showers, complete the property.
This wonderful apartment is the ideal choice for those who wish to explore Florence while also enjoying the perks of quiet and tranquil countryside life, but without giving up comforts, elegance and style. The surrounding neighbourhood of Le Cure features everything you may need during your stay: shops, wonderful restaurants, markets, parks and cafès are all just a short walk away, while the downtown of Florence is only a few minutes away by car or by bus. This Villa truly represents the perfect getaway, a classy, peaceful location for a family or a group of friends looking for a unique holiday in Florence!

25/12/2016 - The dream vacation!
I spent the most wonderful stay on the hills above Florence over Christmas in the beautiful Mangione degli Alighieri. You know that feeling you can have of "being home" even if you are abroad? Well, this is exactly how we felt here. Well welcomed upon arrival, cozy rooms, a living room with authentic paintings on the walls, a marvellous park all around the Villa where you enjoy nice walks and stunning views of the Tuscan hills around Florence... There is even a hot tub in the garden! And I was told they are currently building a brand new pool which will be ready by spring! Each room has independent heating system, which must be very practical also in summer. And cherry on the cake: we were spoiled every day by Peiris who prepares the perfect breakfast and is always there if you have any needs. I will definitely be back and would recommend, if you plan to stay in Florence with friends and/or family, to make sure you don't miss staying in this "little" gem.
