About Us

Residenza Il Villino, a relaxing oasis in the historic center of Florence, just steps from the Dome. A nineteenth-century residence surrounded by gardens, which belonged to tenor Augusto Brogi. Were you can breathe the atmosphere of a typical Tuscan house, with its classic brick floors and wooden ceilings.
A small B&B, with the services of a hotel and a great attention to guests, were to stay like at home. The ideal base to discover the extraordinary history of Florence and its masterpieces. In the morning, the only sound is birdsong. Breakfast includes cappuccino, homemade cakes and good music. In the afternoon, our flowery courtyard is the perfect place to relax over a glass of wine, or watching pictures and other exclusive materials on the birth of Italian fashion from the Giorgini Archive.

The Florentine spirit is still alive in our area, we are among the magnificent Piazza SS Annunziata, designed by Brunelleschi and the Sant'Ambrogio market. Via della Pergola is a quiet street, away from the tourist flow, famous for its historic theater; often we host actors.
