Nestled just below the famous Fiesole hills in Florence, where the Affrico stream gently meanders through the countryside, is the historic Villa il Palmerino. On the oldest part of the property sits The Residenza del Palmerino, whose foundation dates back to 1400. Its unique location has preserved a centuries-old fascination with this refined country house, so close to the city and its conveniences, yet always remaining a peaceful, natural, and quiet oasis.
The recent restoration completed by the current owners has returned original architectural elements to the house, and recovered traces of the past, such as a fresco believed to have been painted in the early 1400s.
The Residenza has been equipped with modern comforts using bio-architecture design and techniques to emphasize and maximize what has always been the Villa’s primary goal—hospitality.
We welcome our guests in an artistic atmosphere, where they can truly and always feel at home.
