- The neighbourhood is wonderful, very vibrant and full of magical buildings and fantastic eateries
Just as Florence will make you swoon and very quickly fall in love, Chiara Townhouse will bring a huge smile to your faces. This gorgeous four-bedroom house boasts sensational interior design, superb comfort, excellent ensuite bathrooms, stylish living spaces and a fabulous garden.
It is located in one of the coolest, most vibrant neighbourhoods of Florence, the Oltrarno, where you will discover picturesque alleyways sprinkled with historic Renaissance buildings, trendy wine bars, contemporary art galleries, artisanal craft boutiques, antique shops, restorers, fine dining restaurants and traditional trattorias. Oltrarno sits on the left bank of the Arno River from Santo Spirito to San Frediano with Florence’s city centre just a bridge away. Some of its treasures include the Pitti Palace, the Basilica of Santa Spirito and the Boboli Gardens. During your stay, Florence will provide a feast of world-class art, gourmet Tuscan cuisine and romantic Renaissance architecture with masterpieces at every turn. It is enchanting, utterly irresistible, and totally captivating. This UNESCO World Heritage compact city allows you to gorge on 16th century palaces, medieval candle-lit chapels, marble basilicas, fresco adorned churches and world-class art museums.
Chiara Townhouse is beautifully presented and enjoys an independent entrance from the street. It is a heavenly retreat where you will enjoy a blissful, indulgent return at the end of a busy day exploring this magical city. It is built over two floors with the bedroom suites on the upper floor and the living spaces downstairs. With a gorgeous parquet floor, the sophisticated and classy living space is open plan in design. The living area boasts a sumptuous corner sofa and large smart television so that you can cosy up with Netflix when you need some chill time. The living area leads to a very smart dining area with a beautiful antique table and chairs. With the door open to the very pretty garden, this is a dreamy spot. The adjacent contemporary kitchen will impress the most discerning of chefs, offering outstanding appliances as well as a super cool look.
The interior designers have worked their magic upstairs too with every bedroom suite being very tasteful and luxurious. Two of the rooms enjoy beautifully dressed, lavish queen size beds and ensuite shower rooms. The remaining two rooms boast twin beds adorned with crisp cottons and fabulous soft furnishings. One offers an immaculate ensuite bathroom with a bath and shower and the other enjoys a shower room. The bathrooms all come with smart black, grey and white tones, the very best fittings, and fluffy towels. After long days on your feet, you will sleep brilliantly on luxury mattresses in stylish surroundings.
Chiara Townhouse also boasts a fabulous private garden where you can relax along to the soothing sounds of the fountain while dining alfresco and enjoying the sunshine or the beautiful Tuscan starry nights. The garden is very beautiful with lots of colour and fragrance. At the end of the garden is a fitness room with free weights and a shower.

Chiara Townhouse is located on a very quiet street in the buzzy, extremely popular Oltrarno area of Florence. Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Della Repubblica and the pretty Boboli Garden are all less than a mile away from the house. It is a great location for exploring this timeless, mesmerising city.
The medieval city of Florence is brimming with brilliant masterpieces. Every corner that you turn will bring another wonder with the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Basilica of Santa Novella, the Pitti Palace and Ponte Vecchio being amongst the best. There are incredible museums including the Academy of Fine Arts which is home to Michelangelo’s ‘David’. A great way to see the city is to take a walking tour when you can skip some the queues to visit some magnificent monuments and galleries, including the Academy of Fine Arts and the Duomo. As well as seeing ‘David’, you will also see Michelangelo’s unfinished ‘Slaves’. During a walking tour, you will pass the smartest piazzas including the Piazza Della Signoria with the towering Palazzo Vecchio, the wonderful, picturesque Ponte Vecchio Bridge, the leather market, Porcellino and incredible street art. Few cities are so compact in size and so smothered in architectural gems. The city has hardly changed since the Renaissance.
The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, or Duomo, stands proud over the city with its magnificent Renaissance dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi. This enormous Gothic structure, named in honour of Santa Maria del Fiore, was built on the site of the 7th century Church of Santa Reparata, the remains of which are in the crypt. The cathedral was begun late in the 13th century by Arnolfo di Cambio with the dome added in the 15th century. The cathedral’s exterior is decorative pink, white and green marble. Inside, you will discover incredible mosaic floors, a 1443 clock designed by Paolo Uccello and Giorgio Vasari’s magnificent frescoes of the Last Judgment.
Florence is fantastic for boutique shopping. Italy’s fashion industry was born and bred in Florence with homegrown designers including Guccio Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo. Their haute-coutre boutiques were opened in the 1920’s and Florence remains an A-lister fashion destination. As well as haute-coutre, you will discover wonderful family-run workshops, Florentine goldsmiths and shoemakers, artisan scents and fantastic food shops. Florence takes enormous pride in its gastronomy and the city is surrounded by wine-rich hills. You can visit market trattorias serving traditional bowels of ribollita, gelateries with delicious ice creams or fine dining restaurants where only the best ingredients will do. It is impossible not to be seduced by Florence and its many wonders.

With its rolling fields, historical heritage and a cuisine that’s a delight for all the senses, it’s no wonder Tuscany is one of the most popular regions in Italy for holidaymakers. Yet even with its popularity, you can still kick back in one of our luxury villas in Tuscany and feel peace, tranquillity and the joy of seclusion.
This is one destination that really does have a little bit of everything for everyone, whether you’re travelling with family, friends or are just looking for a romantic getaway with that special someone.
Chiara Townhouse is a brilliant property for a family trip to Florence. With four bedrooms, gorgeous living space, a garden and a gym which could double as a play room, it is just perfect. It is also brilliantly located in a vibrant neighbourhood and very close to Florence’s many charms.
The city holds much in store for children. There are many opportunities to enjoy the city from above including the Piazzale Michelangelo where children will enjoy a superb view. Children also enjoy climbing the 463 stairs of the cathedral and taking in the 360-degree views from the top.
Florence enjoys a number of parks and gardens. Close to Chiara Townhouse are the Boboli Gardens, right behind the Pitti Palace. It is a wonderful place for a picnic and family games, being one of the largest parks in the city and one of the most important Italian gardens in the world. The gardens enjoy fountains, caves, paths, woods, statues, and ponds. The Cascine Park is a lovely play area with skates for hire. The Parco dei Tulipani del Mensola offers 900 sqm of tulips and the Horticultural Garden has a spectacular iron and glass structure as well as a children’s play area.
The Piazza della Repubblica is one of the busy hubs of the city centre and home to an antique carousel. It is very popular, especially when followed by some gelato. It is said that ice cream was actually invented in the city with Bernardo Buontalenti, a Florentine talented artist inventing a new dessert for a banquet for the Drand Duke Cosimo I de’Medici.
While wandering around the city, children like meeting the ‘Porcellino’, a bronze sculpture and fountain, the mascot of the Mercato Nuovo market near the Ponte Vecchio. Apparently, a rub on its snout means that you will return to Florence!
There are some fascinating museums that children enjoy. These include the Galileo Museum where there are interactive displays and initiatives for children, the Egyptian Museum inside the National Archaeological Museum of Florence, and the Leonardo da Vinci Museum. This is an exhibition dedicated to the genious of the Renaissance with excellent reconstructions of the machines that Leonardo designed including the tank engine, the aerial screw, the vertical ornithopter, the wing test and many others. There are interactive workshops where children can learn and have fun.
