Casa Rosa apartment available at hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 18, 2008

Casa Rosa was truly a home away from home.

From the moment we arrived on the property we experienced the breathtaking view of Florence below and before us was the grandeur of the hotel, serene outdoor pool and the beautiful grounds. There was a pleasant quiet which we knew would be relaxing in the evenings after long days of sightseeing. The hotel desk clerk greeted us immediately and showed us to the apartment.

The apartment is nestled in the villa sharing the hotel grounds. A lovely garden led us to the door. The apartment is bright and comfortable and offers a lovely terrace that doubles the living space. The kitchen was adequately equipped, the two bedrooms and two baths were very nice and the shared walk-in closet more than accommodated clothing of four women.

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy after hours of touring Florence or surrounding cities, this is the place to stay. You can spend quality time in the gardens walking, reading, having an espresso or drinking wine…all of which we took full advantage. There are many places to enjoy on the property and beauty at ever turn. . The whole setting is idyllic. It is the perfect way to slow yourself down and appreciate your surroundings. Whether you are staying in the apartment or Torre di Bellosguardo, I can’t imagine any other place in Florence offering so much outdoor living space.

The hotel and tower are rich in history and the staff was more than happy to share the stories. We took a tour of the hotel and a couple of vacant rooms. Everything about the hotel was beautiful, the fresco on the lobby ceiling, the architecture, the grand doors…you feel as though you stepped back in time. There are many additional modern amenities for those who had need, but did not distract from the elegance of the hotel or grounds.

The hotel staff was more than accommodating in calling a taxi on days that we needed one, but most days we took the pathway on the property to Porta Romano to enter into the city. At the beginning of the path were miniature ponies and goats to greet us. The pathway, lined with olive trees, was quaint. And though the path was a bit steep, added to the adventure of exploring new territory. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio and adjacent Uffizi. With a map of the city, you will be ready to explore the history that surrounds you.

We truly felt the apartment was home. We loved going to the markets for necessities, wine and food. The local produce was wonderful and we couldn’t get our fill. When we were tired from sightseeing, we would hit the markets we passed during the day on our stroll home. We enjoyed every morning having an espresso on the terrace and almost every evening having dinner and wine there. Even the chores of doing dishes, taking out trash and recycling seemed less tedious in such beautiful surroundings. Everything about the apartment and the grounds made our experience in Florence the best it could have been.

Unique Quality: There is the most amazing view of Florence from the hotel grounds. You can literally peer out of the pool and be overlooking Florence with the Duomo as the centerpiece. I don't think there is any place in Florence that would have as much outdoor living space to enjoy and get away from the noise of the city. Truly a place to slow down and enjoy your surroundings.

Directions: Located in the prestigious neighborhood of Bellosguardo. Minutes from major attractions.

Directions: The apartment and hotel are located in Bellosguardo, a prestigious neighborhood in Florence. Just a 5 minute walk to Porta Romano, Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace. 10-15 minute walk to Ponte vecchio and Uffizi.
