Belmonte Suite is a new apartment located in a private property close to the town of Bagno a Ripoli, only 7 km from Florence.
The access to the property is through an electric gate that leads to the vast garden of the estate full of olive trees and cypresses.
The apartment has a private garden area with sun beds and view just in front of it, the rest is shared with the owners who live beside the apartment in a villa.
The owners are usually very busy and rarely at home and in any case, they have an independent parking area and a different private garden on the other side of the villa (not facing the apartment). In case of need the owners or the staff are available to help you.
About 50 meters from the apartment you will find the amazing swimming-pool which is very large, equipped with sun beds, dress-room, bathroom and a spectacular view of the city of Florence (you can see the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio and other worldwide famous monuments from the pool). The pool area is also shaded thanks to the olive trees.
A romantic pavilion located on the side of the pool, allows guests to enjoy light meals or drinks in front of a unique landscape.
Please note: the property owners live in the villa below Belmonte Suite. They are rarely at home and have a private parking space and garden, hardly this will represent a privacy issue. In case of need you can easily contact the owners or the staff which is a very important aspect.
The house has been recently renovated and furnished in a modern nice and easy way.
It is very bright and has a lot of light because all the rooms face their private garden with big French windows, probably in summertime you will never need to use the electric light until the evening!
The apartment is composed by a living room with 2 big sofas and television, a modern and complete kitchen with a little breakfast table and a dining area for 6.
From the living room you access to the external living area which is covered and has a roof window, so it makes very pleasant to be outside even if it’s raining.
A corridor leads to the night area composed by 2 twin bedrooms (beds can be joined to become double beds) which can be connected or separated through a sliding wall and share a bathroom with shower and the master bedroom with a double bed and an en suite bathroom with bathtub. Every room has French doors facing the garden. There is also a laundry room.
Included free Wi-Fi and air conditioning in the master bedroom and living room.
Belmonte Suite is a bright, modern and comfortable property that will allow you to have a really enjoyable stay in Florence. The property has all the amenities we consider necessary: nice furnishings, internet wi-fi, air conditioning, private garden, swimming-pool, view….
The price / quality ratio is really good. Depending of the point of view, the fact that the owners live in the villa on the back can be positive or negative. Positive because in case of need you can have the support of the owners or the staff, negative if you wish to be completely isolated but, even in this case, we think that this won't probably represent a big issue considering that each property face a different side of the garden.
