Palazzo Rimbotti dates back to the 14 th century, at a time when Florence was beginning to expand beyond its original Roman centre. Compared to the Via delle Belle Donne, Via Tornabuoni and Piazza Antinori were then parallel side streets leading out towards the city’s exits.
It was only later, towards the mid 15 th century, that Via Tornabuoni and Piazza Antinori were expanded and became the place where rich Florentines bought and refurbished large buildings to turn them into stately homes.
Throughout the centuries, Palazzo Rimbotti was extensively remodelled, acquiring its present day aspect around the mid 18 th century.
A large hallway opens into the dining room, with a dining table and decorative prints; an open brick archway leads one on into the impressive sitting room, a wonderful explosion of patterns in shades of green and rust. Above the three – seater sofa a small alcove resembling a window looks out onto an imaginary Tuscan landscape, painted in trompe l’oeil. Another sofa, four armchairs and some side tables complete the furniture.
The room opens onto a terrace with table and chairs for inforgettable outdoor dinners. The master-bedroom has a king-size double bed, period furniture and a large walk-in wardrobe; adjacent to the bedroom is the bathroom with tub and shower. The two further bedrooms both have twin beds; each room has a spacious wardrobe and pretty painted furniture as well as exquisite furnishing fabrics. There are two bathrooms one with tub and another with shower. The kitchen is spacious and complete with all modern requisites.
