Cieffe is one of the most luxurious private experiences in Florence accommodations today.
This fascinating residence matching the modern comfort with history gives you the very best of Florentine life.
Palazzo Bardi, whose apartment Cieffe represents the noble floor (Piano Nobile), was built in 1420 by Brunelleschi. It is located between the Arno River, the Uffizi gallery and Santa Croce. The building is considered the first step towards a new model of private renaissance palace in Florence, changing the late gothic architecture.
The courtyard of the palazzo is decorated with Andrea della Robbia majolicas. A crown of big columns typical of Brunelleschi’s style, antique marble and precious Renaissance ironworks.
The palazzo’s major restoration was competed in 2012 and it’s now in mint conditions. English speaking porter and security video system ensure the best security and privacy.
The name of the apartment is due to the fact that in the 16th century the Cieffe used to meet in this apartment, which was the palazzo’s theatre during the Renaissance. The Cieffe was a group of scientists and was constituted by the Bardi Count and other scholars of musical theory, among whose there was Vincenzo Galilei, father of Galileo. They created new musical principles, merging music to the 33rd “canto” of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, giving birth to what is now known as lyrical opera. Still hanging from the ceiling of the theatre is the scenic machinery used at that time.
Cieffe is located at the Piano Nobile (first floor, no lift). It is a 320sqm (3.400 sq. ft.) apartment on two levels.
The décor is a combination of the finest contemporary Italian design and Florentine ‘500 architectural detail.
The interiors are superbly decorated with original plaster works, stones and 18th century frescoes. Bauhaus period furniture are from the best designers: Van der Rohe, Eames, le Corbusier, matching a precious 17th century sofa and two medieval terracotta statues. Castiglioni, Flos and Fontanarte lightings give to the place a very special atmosphere in the evening. The common spaces are extremely spacious.
Kitchen equipment and internal systems are state of the art.

"The accommodation was great-- the master bedroom was fantastic the apartment looked as good as it was represented in the pictures. The air-conditioners or work perfectly and there was no problem with mosquitoes, The cleaners and housekeepers were really helpful-- and clean the place so it was spotless-- nothing was too much of a problem for them. All in all I can say that is about the best place I've stayed-by way of rented accommodation. We were pleased with Cieffe."
