Opera - 3Br - Sleeps 6
See the best of Renaissance architecture and modern Italian design at villa Opera in Florence. Set in a palazzo that was built in 1420 by Brunelleschi, the three-bedroom villa was carved out of the palazzo’s theater in a 2012 renovation. While the space’s high beamed ceilings, elegant windows and even its pulleys for theatrical scenes have been preserved, the historic envelope has been filled with a mix of treasured antiques and new classics of contemporary design.
On your way to the villa, pass by the palazzo’s courtyard, decorated with majolicas by Andrea della Robbia, neoclassical columns, antique marbles and Renaissance-era ironworks. Once inside Opera, a heating system and video security ensure your comfort, while a surround-sound system, bar and Wi-Fi access are perfect for entertaining. While the restaurants of Florence are at your doorstep, you can order in from the ground-floor restaurant at extra cost if you’d prefer.
Spread across two levels, the villa creates a loft-like feel in a traditional space. Beneath the beamed ceilings, traditional arched windows and walls covered in 18th-century frescoes, you’ll find clean-lined contemporary pieces like a Tulip table and chairs, sleek black leather sectional, and Eames lounger. The dining area’s tufted red and black leather seats, arc lamp and minimalist white shelving continue the modern feel, as does the mirror-lined fully equipped kitchen.
Each of villa Opera’s three bedrooms has a queen bed, en-suite bathroom, flat-screen TV and air conditioning. Neutral-toned bedding and streamlined beds and nightstands create a restful atmosphere, while cowhide armchairs and dark, dramatic tiled bathrooms ensure the spaces aren’t short on style. One of the bedrooms is decorated with frescoes of scenes from antiquity and has its own seating area with tufted leather sofa.
The villa is located in the center of Florence, putting the city’s museums, galleries, shopping and dining just minutes away. If you’d like to learn more about local culture, wine tastings and cooking lessons can be arranged at extra cost. If you’d like to explore the region, San Gimignano, Pisa and Volterra are all within day-trip distance. It’s a 75-minute drive to Siena and a 240-minute drive to Rome.
