Palazzo Franchini


Stunning apartment for 10 with fine views, antique and contemporary art, huge comfort - just a short walk to all the culture of Florence


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 10


The Palazzo, elegant in yellow and white, sits in a dignified part of the city just a 15-minute walk to the Duomo. Up handsome stone stairs (or a zoom in a newly-installed crystal lift) to the split-level loft and this magnificent, airy apartment. Step in to warm travertine stone floors from Puglia, a wonderful mix of materials and artwork, colours to dazzle and each room with antique and contemporary artwork rubbing shoulders happily together. Light floods in through enormous windows, views are over the elegant palazzo and, surprisingly, it is very hushed. Most beds are very generously sized and super comfy – one bedroom has a starry night painted above the bed, two chubby putti (painted by the brothers’ grandmother) scamper in a garden on a wardrobe; bathrooms are straight from a style magazine with natural light, creative lighting, beautiful fixtures. No corners have been cut, you’ll find something to surprise and delight at every turn. The Franchini family, owners of this building for generations, are cultured and well connected so can point you to many experiences and places not usually mentioned in the guide books.
