Surrounded by towering pines and sedate Cypress trees on the outskirts of Florence, this home – the poet Dante’s former residence – belongs in a league of its own. Characterised by its exquisitely decorated interiors, this historic abode wears its literary and artistic heritage on its sleeve – think hand-painted wall panels, multi-coloured glass chandeliers and terracotta tiled floors. Featuring an artfully decorated dining room, decadent drawing room and unbeatable outdoor offering, it’s perfect for spending quality time with family and friends or even celebrating intimate upcoming nuptials. You’ll love taking your morning coffee in the cloistered conservatory before wandering about the elegant Italian gardens. While away hours lazing on loungers by the pool before cooling off with a refreshing dip. Come lunch or dinnertime whip up bowls of tagliatelle funghi in the rustic kitchen before dining alfresco on the fragrant veranda. After a soak in the hot tub, as the light begins to fade, recline on the striped sofas in the sitting room before hitting the hay. Whatever you do, you’re bound to be seduced by this poet’s paradise.

About Santa Maria Novella

Tucked inside the thirteenth century boulevard that marks out the oldest part of Florence, this neighbourhood is on the western edge of Florence’s historic centre. The Piazza Santa Maria Novella, with its Gothic church and museum, is the centrepiece, and while the area immediately surrounding the train station is fairly gritty, it’s a convenient spot for those just passing through. Though Santa Maria Novella is not directly in the middle...

Host


This home is managed by Oliver

This home is managed directly by a business. A member of their staff will be your point of contact before and during your stay. Nearly twenty years ago, Oliver and his friend began curating the world's most unique and rustic getaways. Driven by their own unforgettable experience at a chateau, they have grown remarkably since then. Much like Plum, they believe in hand-picked luxury that doesn't break the bank.
