Scudo Vacation Rental

On the third floor of an historical Florentine palazzo with elevator, Scudo has been completely transformed to a calming and serene urban oasis. The four-bedroom exquisite apartment boasts traditional architecture that dated back to 1600, a clever monochromatic palette that unifies the entire space including minimal and clean-lined furniture. Scudo is an elegant and very sophisticated apartment, and yet, you will feel it welcoming and exceptionally comfortable.

Besides the impeccable interiors that reflect the latest trendy style combined with comfort and ease, Scudo has an unbeatable location. It is in fact set in the very center of the Cradle of the Renaissance and yet here you will be not disturbed by the noise of the modern times.


The open living room is luminous thanks to two very generous windows, and it features a soothing light gray and neutral palette that is so inviting. While primarily contemporary, the space receives traditional influences from the original frescoed ceilings and the classic tall columns that serve as a visual divider between the sitting area and the foyer.

The spacious eat-in kitchen provides sitting space for up to 12 guests around a large dining table and chairs. The light wood of the cabinets, mixed with the stainless steel counter and the modern sleek pendant lights above the table, keep the space airy and bright with an open feeling. A private sauna room is also available for the guests, so if you enjoy a sauna for relaxation, why don’t you try it while on vacation? It’s a double pleasure!

Tuscany Travel Guide

Rural Chic

Tuscany is overflowing with natural, architectural, and artistic masterpieces. The birthplace of Italian Renaissance is home to rolling hills, majestic cypress trees, miles of sandy coastline, and beautiful vineyards in addition to the world's finest art center, Florence. Stay in a rustic yet elegant villa enjoying life's greatest pleasures: sprawling countryside, simple, fresh cuisine, and Italy's finest wines.

Each villa rental in this magnificent province is unique to the area in which it resides. A shopper’s delight, Florence is home to charming cobblestone streets, artistic and architectural masterpieces, and some of the world’s biggest fashion icons. Those who rent villas in the 39-square mile Chianti wine region will love sampling the fruits of the region’s spectacular vineyards at the wineries themselves or in the comfort of their villa. Villas in the bigger cities of Pisa and Livorno offer a slightly different experience, allowing vacationers to explore the mystique of the Medici era and visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Famous for its butteri, cowboys who managed cattle, Maremma offers visitors the opportunity to go horseback riding or swim in one of the area's beautiful bays. In Siena, one of the region's loveliest medieval cities, visitors can stroll the famous shell-shaped Piazzo del Campo, where horse races are held twice a year. No matter where in Tuscany you choose to stay, your villa vacation is guaranteed to be unforgettable.
