A historic residence In Oltrarno

In the heart of the Oltrarno in Firenze, an exclusive destination awaits you: Ottantotto Firenze. Once the home-workshop of a Renaissance baker, the venue was turned into a noble residence, then into the seat of a religious congregation, only to become a residence with garden again.

In this historical palace distributed over six levels, the materials of the rooms boast interior design solutions that epitomise contemporary living. This heterogeneous coexistence is strung together by a floral theme that links the inside with the outdoors, giving the venue an atmosphere of international relevance.
The residence offers seven rooms on four floors, one of which is a suite with terrace and kitchenette, making it an exclusive dwelling. Each has been given a specific character that deliberately differentiates the rooms from one another, like so many worlds  within themselves, without forgetting the details that will make your experience timeless and quaint. Ottantotto Firenze is an authentic home, with low lighting, antique materials and contemporary furnishings. The residence embodies a journey to discover an intimate place that boasts a welcoming, quiet and ill-concealed joy, dressed in an elegance that is sometimes casual, but more often fun.

In a stone-paved courtyard facing the living room you can have breakfast under a tent that is heated in winter. A few steps lead to the small shaded and flowered garden, where you can stop and refresh yourself while enjoying a good book.
This green corner in Ottantotto Firenze has long been chosen by a solitary and defying magpie. In the living room that overlooks it, a large 16th century fireplace recalls the memory of the old baker’s workshop that once stood here, along with some ancient furnishings and designer items. The corridors and hallways were left as they were, and enriched with archival photos, original engravings and drawings, a collection of mirrors, lamps and period furniture.
