Relais Santa Croce
Florence, Italy
This charming Palazzo, once owned by Marquis Baldinucci, the Pope's treasurer, is in the heart of Florence where Via Ghibellina meets Via De Pepi and Renaissance art meets contemporary design, and is the ultimate expression of Tuscan elegance. A Relais & Châteaux residence housed in a noble 18th century Palazzo adorned with original frescoes and hand-sculpted reliefs, the Relais Santa Croce is the perfect venue for those seeking the intimate and cosy atmosphere typical of a private home.

The hotel boasts historic wooden trusses based on a Leonardo da Vinci design that supported a stunning 3-metre chandelier in the centre of the Sala della Musica, the main lounge in the hotel. 24 rooms and suites overlook the rooftops of Florence, the Duomo or the Santa Croce Basilica, where 18th century frescoes, hand-painted sculpted reliefs and contemporary lighting create refined and timeless settings. On the main floor, the Presidential Suite De Pepi and the Royal Suite Da Verrazzano, with their frescoed ceilings, antique furniture and a sumptuous room to welcome guests, breathe life into the Santa Croce Royal Suite, one of the most impressive and spacious in the city.

The Guelfi & Ghibellini restaurant excels in Mediterranean cuisine with a strong emphasis on Tuscan flavours; a perfect way to experience traditional local specialities and contemporary variations. The three Michelin star Enoteca Pinchiorri, in the same Palazzo, rounds off the gastronomicexperience with its fine cuisine and world-renowned wine cellar.
