Limonaia Capponi is a hidden away palace located in Tuscany. The ownership of this historic property represents a veritable who’s who of Italian history, starting with politician Jacopo Salviati who created a lodge and a garden rich with rare, fragrant flowers and works of art in 1579. The “Limonaia” defines the northern border of the Palazzo Capponi’s garden, situated on Via Gino Capponi, a short distance from the Duomo. Be part of history with Luxury Retreats!
The surfaces of the Limonaia are entirely decorated following geometrical composition and are in symmetry with the central axis of the upper level where a white marble sundial is mounted. On the roof coping, there are eight marble busts alternated with six vases. A statue in white marble stands atop the main building. Beside it, a balustrade and two obelisks in pietra serena. The outer coating is decorated with mosaic work and seashells. The polychromatic mosaics are formed by white marble tesserae from Carrara, green ones from Prato and red ones from Monsummano as well as kiln husks and shells. The mosaic is broken up by the opening of true and faux windows, rendered and lined with wooden supports in Gris style.
Yet, the old world character of the exteriors belie the contemporary luxury perks featured inside this fully renovated and restored holiday rental. Amenities include cable TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioning and ceiling fans. The modern living room features two-story high ceilings, comfortable couches and an elongated gas fireplace. The open plan leads out to a sparkling formal dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar. The villa also features a cozy study room. Your reservation includes housekeeping.
Four exquisite bedrooms accommodate up to seven guests at this private non-smoking villa. You will find your choice of one king bed, a twin and two queens, with three bedrooms offering en-suite bathrooms. Sleep like nobility in nothing but the finest linens and accoutrements.
This holiday home is located in the heart of downtown Florence and within an easy commute of the Uffizi Gallery. Limonaia Capponi makes a great bet for a family retreat, a decadent honeymoon or a sophisticated wedding service. And when you find yourself on the rooftop terrace or at the dining alfresco set sipping your favorite local wine as the sun dims, you’ll be so happy you made this booking!
