Quintess Florence

Please click on a thumbnail to view larger versions


The Quintess apartments are located on the estate grounds of the ancient Torre del Gallo castle, a spectacular building with a 1,200-year history. At one time the castle controlled the road into Florence from Chianti and was where the tax collector levied taxes on all goods coming into town from the countryside. Situated south of the river Arno and on the summit of the hill at Arcetri, which is the highest elevation in the city, its location overlooking both the city and the countryside has always been strategic.

The 3 bedroom apartment features:

  • Expansive family and dining rooms with Italian furnishings
  • Fully appointed kitchen
  • Air conditioning
  • Lower-level furnished office
  • Shared in-ground pool and communal gardens with views of Florence; pool is open from June to mid-September
  • Secured parking within the estate grounds
  • Located in a multi-unit building on the Torre del Gallo estate, with views of Galileo's home turned observatory across the hill from the estate
