Ape Rosa was born in a Florentine villa from the late 18th century, entirely restored during the past two years. The restoration has maintained both structure and atmosphere, but also provided the necessary modernization of the facilities. We are situated in proximity of the city centre and are easily reachable by car and public transport. Ape Rosa is the ideal choice for businesspeople in need of a bit of relax after a day's stress, and for tired tourists looking for an easy retreat before and after their peregrinations in and around this masterpiece of a city..

Our 3-storey B&B welcomes its guests in a charming structure, with elegant spacious bedrooms with private bathrooms. All rooms have been furnished with family pieces of furniture and paintings, but very modern and comfortable beds.

The dining room and one of the living rooms upstairs have undergone a restoration that brought back the original frescoes to their splendour. Cut-outs of those frescoes are now the symbols of each room and its keyring, as well as our logo: as children we used to call that "grotesque" figure an "ape rosa" (pink bee).

The "Italian garden" which surrounds the villa is protected by the Ministry of Environment and contains typical Tuscan plants such as irises, magnolias, roses and lemon trees in their earthenware vessels. A laurel hedge separates the garden from the orchard with its herbs, and fruit and olive trees. From the bottom of the garden and some rooms upstairs you can see Il Duomo. If you let your eyes wander, you can also see Fiesole and the Stibbert museum on a background of rolling green hills. Moreover, just behind us, lie the city hospital, Careggi, and the Faculty of Engineering and Technology.
