Destined for the most sophisticated jet setters seeking a charismatic city break, the Palatine is a 3rd-floor apartment in a historic building dating back to the 17th century. The Renaissance landmark is nestled in Florence in central Italy’s Tuscany region.

Located on the left bank of the meandering Arno River, the local neighbourhood is the perfect spot to discover Florence’s winding streets, atmospheric restaurants, wine bars with hidden terraces, and many notable landmarks and Renaissance architecture.

Tastefully decorated and furnished with great care, the opulent interiors mix old with the new. The grey colour palette blends in with well-preserved historic walls, ornate frescoes and original columns dating back to the 17th century when the building was initially constructed as a local theatre. Four well-proportioned bedrooms are designed with the matching colour scheme in mind, three boasting an en-suite bathroom for maximum comfort.

Stepping into the living room feels like travelling back in time. The huge windows let plenty of light in and offer a front-row seat to some of Florence’s most beautiful Renaissance buildings, such as the Pitti Palace, which used to be the home of the Medici family.

Aspiring mixologists and wine enthusiasts can tend to one of the two bars with a choice of liquors to hand and create refreshing aperitifs before sitting down for a home-cooked dinner. Thankfully, there’s enough space around the large dining table for the entire family and guests. Spend the evening relaxing in the giant bathtub and getting well-deserved pampering in the infrared sauna.

The Palatine is a fabulous base for exploring the authentic romantic charm of this Italian city. There are many restaurants just outside your front door, while the supermarket is also within a 5-minute walk away if you need to stock up on essentials. On weekend mornings, you can stroll to the bohemian neighbourhood of San Spirito to witness a bustling market with clothing and fresh local produce before enjoying a cup of authentic Italian coffee in the Piazza Santo Spirito – or add a scoop of ice cream and turn it into a refreshing affogato. Explore Florence’s art museums, majestic churches and ancient bridges that look straight out of Monet’s Waterlily painting before ending your day with a glass of wine from the famous Chianti region.

On hot summer days, you should head northwest to reach the closest beach on the Tuscan coastline, Versilia. Located in the Lucca region, it’s only an hour’s drive away and boasts a long sandy coastline stretching as far as the eye can see – ideal for lazing under the umbrella, catching a tan, and splashing in the waves.

Another fantastic option for a day trip is Livorno – a port city with a modern harbour where you can admire majestic cruise ships from a checkerboard-paved promenade. You can also find delicious seafood restaurants, a pretty old town, and more beach spots.

Such a superb location in Florence’s historic centre, just a stone’s throw away from the grand Pitti Palace, turns The Palatine into a front-row seat to the city’s historical landmarks and notable architectural and art institutions.

Walk across the ancient Ponte Vecchio bridge and visit the Basilica of Santa Croce before heading to Il Duomo and the Giotto bell tower, while leaving the famous Michelangelo’s David statue as a cherry on top. All these majestic places can be seen in one day – but be sure to leave some space in between for caffeine-fuelled stops in the many charismatic cafés before ending the day with a large glass of Aperol Spritz while watching the sun slip behind the horizon.

The Tuscan coastline is varied and unique, with a landscape characterised by fine sandy beaches the further south you go while also being a short distance from the Apuan Alps. The close position to the marble mountains and the sea means switching between lazy tanning days and hiking trips is completely effortless. In the closest resort town Versilia, you can find pine forests, Liberty-style architecture and bustling nightlife, as well as typical Italian beaches lined with rainbow-hued parasols.

For more unique experiences, head to the prestigious Cinque Terre, located just over one hour's drive away. Consisting of five coastal villages connected by a scenic pathway, the area forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can take pictures of colourful houses and hilltop vineyards that cling to steep terraces and watch the sea lap at the rugged shores. Stay for the local specialities such as seafood and the Liguria region’s famous pesto sauce.

The world-renowned leaning tower of Pisa can be reached in only 40 minutes by car– so get ready to create memorable holiday photographs while ticking another Italian city off your bucket list.

Wine connoisseurs and enthusiasts can arrange one of the many wine-tasting trips and experiences to the surrounding Chianti vineyards. Here you can walk through the sun-kissed slopes and learn more about the local wine production before enjoying a fresh lunch accompanied by wine produced in the very same location.

Children are undoubtedly welcome in Florence – the city is perfect for expanding their horizons and palates. Start your day with a wholesome stroll through the city’s narrow, cobbled streets and mysterious pathways and admire centuries-old buildings such as the Il Duomo and Basilica of Santa Croce. If their legs tire, hop on a guided Segway tour to make sightseeing more interesting.

In bad weather, you can also visit one of the many museums. In the interactive Leonardo Da Vinci Museum, children and curious adults alike can learn fascinating facts about the Italian genius and see various military projects in Leonardo’s Codex. Nature lovers should visit the Museum of Natural History to look at ancient fossils and remains.

The Pitti Palace is waiting for you just a couple of metres away from home – its Boboli Gardens present the ideal spot for a picnic on a warm sunny day, plus children can roam free here. Our tip? Pack a picnic basket of cheeses and local produce and settle in the grass near swaying trees.

A trip to the coastline is an excellent alternative for those who tend to get tired from walking around. Pack your snorkelling gear and swimsuit and embark on a family trip to Versilia or Viareggio – both are popular with families due to their wide sandy beaches and play areas for children, as well as many amenities such as restaurants and changing rooms.

Reviews

  • Magnificent luxury property!

    on 27/07/2019

    The apartment is beautifully decorated and in a perfect location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Owners and Manager were totally responsive to all inquiries and helped make our stay very enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone!

  • Five star property

    on 08/06/2019

    First class property run by thoughtful owners who attend to every detail. It’s in a great location, just past Ponte Vecchio. The flat is spacious and filled with light, comfortably furnished and equipped with everything to make our stay in Florence delightful. The wine, compliments of the owner’s vineyard, was great. The property manager was helpful and, since she doubles as an excellent chef, visited one evening for an absolutely delightful meal expertly prepared while we watched. We’ll be back!

  • Loved it!

    on 18/05/2019

    This apartment was perfect for our family. It was very clean and spacious. The location was excellent and the property manager was super. We would certainly stay here again!

  • Outstanding location

    on 23/02/2019

    I couldn’t imagine a better location or price. We had excellent and timely communication with the hosts and their apartment was spacious, immaculate and well stocked with their complimentary Pitti 22 wine. The apartment is an easy walk to all the major attractions across the river but well away from the “Times Square “ atmosphere of central Florence. Close to excellent pizza, fine Florentine cuisine and gelato. My family of 8 adults, 2 children and an infant had plenty of room and appreciated the washer and dryer, coffee, cocktail ingredients and overall graciousness of the hosts and their staff. This was our favourite of four different apartments we stayed in in Italy and France —- we only wish we could have stayed longer.

  • Excellent property in an excellent location

    on 27/10/2018

    Our group of 8 adults enjoyed the community spaces and the private bathrooms. The location was perfect to walk through out the old town and into the rolling Tuscan hillside.
