Pascoli Apartment - Florence

2 Bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin)

Palazzo Lungarno is situated on the south side of the river Arno. On one side, it overlooks Via de' Bardi, and on the other it enjoys spectacular, if not unique, views over the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Cathedral. The building' s original structure dates back to the 15th century, when a myriad of little cobbled roads branched off from the Ponte Vecchio into the Oltrarno, one of the city's most charming and typical quarters.

The Arno's banks were flanked by buildings belonging to wealthy aristocratic families (e.g. the Bardi family) - for this reason their residences were known as palazzi. Palazzo Lungarno was modified until the mid 19th century when an architect called Enrico Poggi was asked to draw up an architectural and landscape plan to turn Florence into a capital city (a role which it maintained for five years, between 1865 and 1870, following Italy's unification in 1860). Poggi wanted to give Florence a look of uniformity and subdued elegance without creating a violent contrast with its Renaissance architecture. He therefore decided to maintain the Renaissance colour palette of cream plaster and grey pietra serena stone, which is visible in so many buildings throughout the city.

Lungarno Torrigiani was included in Poggi's plan and it is easy to see how he drew inspiration from the more ancient buildings on the river's opposite side. The lungarni together with the viali leading up to the Piazzale Michelangelo were meant to be a place where Florentines could enjoy afternoon strolls and socialize in the open air.

 

Pascoli Apartment Description (88 sq. m. - sleeps 4)

The main entrance opens into a large room with a round dining table. A delightfully decorated cupboard resembles a green book-case to the right of which an open archway leads into the living room with its large sofa and armchairs. An antique table and desk together with a careful choice of details such as pictures and silver candlesticks give a sense of being in a private home.

 

The view out of the window overlooks the Loggiato degli Uffizi and the river. The color palette is a mixture of rich reds, dark greens and pale yellows. The master bed-room is furnished in a very pretty porcelain blue/green and white print, with perfectly matched paintings depicting views of the country side. The view is once more over the river and the renaissance city with the Fiesole hills in the distance. The room has an en-suite bathroom with a shower. The second double room is across the dining room and has twin beds with lovely peacock-blue covers to match the curtains.

The window overlooks Via de' Bardi and the adjacent medieval buildings. Next to the room is a spacious bathroom complete with tub and hand shower. The apartment has wooden parquet flooring throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a table and chairs for quick snacks. The apartment has an armored door, central heating, satellite TV, telephone (hi speed internet) and buzzer, gas stove , oven, dishwasher and washing machine and comes supplied with two sets of linen and towels. There is a lift and day-time porter service.
