Next door are two apartments which can be rented together and host up to 6 persons total; they include a spacious living room and three double bedrooms each with its own en-suite bathroom.

Living Florence Like a Local
Though set in the center of the historic part of Florence, these apartments are elevated from the busy activity that surround them, offering guests the ideal place to call "home" away from the crowds and bustle of the city below. Located nearby are stores, a local food market and restaurants. You can ask the owner about participating in a cooking class. Your host can also assist you in making plans to visit the city, reserve tickets or wander outside the city confines to visit their ancient wine cellar for a very special wine tasting.
Use this as your base to explore the wonders of Florence, its museums, monuments, amazing architecture and timeless elegance. In this apartment, you will immediately feel at home in Florence, but you will never get use to the beauty that surrounds you, from the marble facade of Santa Croce to the red tiled cupola of the Duomo, from the work of Botticelli in the Uffizi Gallery to the smooth lines of David in the Accademia.
Located between the two main train stations in Florence, there is ample possiblity to travel and explore the many cities of art throughout Tuscany as day trips out of Florence. Arezzo, Siena and Pisa are well connected with frequent and fast public transport options. Or you could opt for a private tour which will pick you up in the city center for a day of wine tasting, photo opportunities and more.
Niccolò talks about his love for his family home
Torre a Cona and the palazzo at Borgo de Greci have been in our family for many generations. In the last several years, our family restructured the various spaces in both places into apartments in order to be able to share our love of this place and of the area with our guests.
We are deeply committed to caring for our guests satisfaction and invite them to join us to see the production of our estate’s wines and of our extra-virgin olive oil just outside of Florence: we are happy to offer tastings of all our products to our guests as well as the general public.
Year after year, I enjoy hearing the satisfaction, enjoyment and love that our guests end up feeling for the estate and their holidays spent with us. This, in turn, makes us happy, especially as many of our guests end up returning year after year and end up becoming friends.
