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.
Located on the elegant Piazza Antinori facing the church of San Gaetano, the apartment has an unusual layout incorporating a staircase in the traditional Florentine gray stone. The entrance hall leads into the living room/dining room, elegantly furnished and decorated, with a modern dining table.
The double window leads onto a small balcony. On the same level there is a small fully equipped kitchen. The staircase leads from the entrance-hall to the first floor. At the top of the stairs, a bathroom with shower and just behind this, a laundry with washing machine. Continuing on the first level, is a luminous single room with built in cupboards and a window overlooking the roofs.
The master bedroom has a double king-sized bed set in an alcove and a walk in wardrobe. A short corridor leads to the twin bedroom with its own access to a terrace with outdoor furniture. The twin room has its own bathroom with tub and double sinks. A further flight of steps leads to the long altana , with windows on all sides and chairs to relax in. From here one accesses to three further terraces which offer spectacular views over the city and are equipped with garden furniture.
The apartment has an armored door, independent heating, satellite TV, telephone (Hi speed internet) and buzzer, air-conditioning, dishwasher, gas-stove, oven, fridge/freezer, crockery and a washing machine and comes supplied with two sets of linen and towels.
