TUSCANY

This is a fashionable property in an exclusive location in the heart of Florence! On the third floor of an historical Florentine palazzo with elevator, Scudo has been completely transformed to a calming and serene urban oasis. The four-bedroom exquisite apartment boasts traditional architecture that dated back to 1600, a clever monochromatic palette that unifies the entire space including minimal and clean-lined furniture. Scudo is an elegant and very sophisticated apartment, and yet, you will feel it welcoming and exceptionally comfortable.

LIVING SPACES
The open living room is luminous thanks to two very generous windows, and it features a soothing light gray and neutral palette that is so inviting. While primarily contemporary, the space receives traditional influences from the original frescoed ceilings and the classic tall columns that serve as a visual divider between the sitting area and the foyer. The spacious eat-in kitchen provides sitting space for up to 12 people around a large dining table and chairs. The light wood of the cabinets, mixed with the stainless steel counter and the modern sleek pendant lights above the table, keep the space airy and bright with an open feeling. A private sauna room is also available for the guests, so if you enjoy a sauna for relaxation, why don’t you try it while on vacation? It’s a double pleasure!

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS
Besides the impeccable interiors that reflect the latest trendy style combined with comfort and ease, Scudo has an unbeatable location. It is in fact set in the very center of the Cradle of the Renaissance and yet here you will be not disturbed by the noise of the modern times.

Florence, a medieval city of timeless artistic beauty is there to be discovered. The beautiful Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore, the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, the Pitti Palace, and Ponte Vecchio are only few of the city’s most famous architectural masterpieces. Check at least one of its museums – we like the Academy of Fine Arts, which houses Michelangelo’s superb David. Stroll the narrow streets of Florence, the cradle of the Reinassance, and marvel at the richness of this real open museum. Enjoy a cappuccino on one of its piazzas, or a colorful gelato to cool off the summer heat. Whatever you do, don’t pinch yourself…you are not dreaming!
