D'Annunzio Apartment - Florence

3 Bedrooms (1 double, 2 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.


D'Annunzio Apartment Description (150 sq.m. - sleeps 6)

One enters the apartment through a delightful hallway completely painted to resemble a clearing in a wood. Cypress trees and oak-leafed branches create the base for a clear blue sky crossed by birds in flight. A mirror and a glass topped table and chairs provide discreet furnishing for this room with parquet flooring like the rest of the apartment. A door leads into the spacious sitting room furnished in tones of rust, red and green. A wonderful contrast of patterns between the curtains, the two armchairs and the three-seater sofa help to create a warm ambience. A large dining table to one side of the room seats six.

The window overlooks the river, the Ponte Vecchio on the left and the spectacular Loggiato degli Uffizi. A door connects the sitting room to a bedroom with twin beds with a small balcony on the River.

Opposite the sitting room is the spacious kitchen decorated in pink and white, with a table which provides ample working-space and a quick snack area. Continuing down the corridor, one comes to the first bathroom with bathtub and hand-shower, on the left. At the end of the passage, there are the two bedrooms. The master bed room on the right shares the same spectacular view as the living room and has a large double bed. The furnishings are in rich reds and pretty patterned prints. A very large built in wardrobe provides ample hanging space for clothes. The second bed-room with twin beds, is furnished in pretty pastel pinks and greens, faces south and overlooks the Via de' Bardi. It has an en-suite spacious bathroom with shower.

The apartment has an armoured door, central heating, air-conditioning, 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.
