Crossing the doors of the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze is reliving one of the finest chapters of the Italian Renaissance. The hotel is made up of two beautifully classified buildings: the Palazzo della Gherardesca, built in the 15th century, and the Villa, built in the 16th century.

This luxurious hotel is nestled in the largest private garden of the city: the Giardino della Gherardesca, which extends over 11 acres. In this idyllic setting, majestic ancient trees, flower beds, fountains and historic sculptures stand side by side.

A perfect blend of classicism and modernity, the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze is listed as one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. The place is considered an authentic living museum, with its frescoes and various objects of art.

The Executive Deluxe Suite (105 sqm): designed like a real apartment, this suite can accommodate 2 adults, 2 children and 1 baby. Children share a Queen-size bed, while adults enjoy a King-size bed. The baby, meanwhile, enjoys a comfortable cot. This suite is very much appreciated by large families looking for space and comfort.

FAMILY EXPERIENCES

Go for a picnic with your family on the hotel grounds for a gourmet experience! Simply inform the concierge 24 hours in advance and he will prepare a nice basket filled with the best local produce. To enhance your picnic with the most noble mushrooms, the hotel even offers you to go for truffle hunting accompanied by a dog and its owner!

Sports lovers will enjoy a game of golf, a game of tennis or a ride on a pony or horse. These activities take place 10 minutes from the hotel and can be organized with the concierge.

Florence is full of museums perfect for children! First of all, the Palazzo Vecchio offers daily activities for 4-year-olds and families, as well as interactive tours to discover all the secrets of the Medici family, who built the building a long time ago. The magnificent Villa Montughi is home to the Stibbert Museum, a favorite spot for children because of its huge armory which houses a spectacular collection of all kinds, including horses and riders in actual size. For children who prefer science and animals, there is the Leonardo da Vinci Museum, famous for its fun and interactive inventions that children can reproduce, or the National Museum of History, home to many skeletons and fossils.

The hotel offers a real safari in the hills surrounding Florence! This safari is located 15 minutes from the hotel, at the Fattoria di Maiano, a magnificent property dating back to the 15th century. There, children have the opportunity to see cows, bulls and donkeys, throughout an excursion covering the most beautiful spots of the region. The same tour can be organized at night to see foxes, fallow deer, porcupines, pheasants and many other animals!

The Four Seasons Hotel Firenze offers a unique experience that will delight families in search of adventure and breathtaking scenery. When departing from the hotel park, take a hot air balloon ride to admire Florence from the sky, as well as the beautiful Tuscan countryside. A memory that will remain forever etched in your mind and in that of your children.

Are you wondering how the best Italian products are grown? Try the « Table to farm » experience offered by the hotel. For a half-day, you will experience the life of a real Tuscan farmer in the Fattoria San Michele, a medieval barn in the Chianti region. Children will have the opportunity to feed the chickens, harvest the eggs, plant vegetables, feed the pigs and learn how olive oil and wine are produced. The morning will end with a delicious lunch consisting of all the organic products of the farm.

The youngest sailors love to explore Florence by Renaioli, a traditional boat. The Four Seasons Hotel Firenze has customized the oldest Renaioli which dates back to 1850. From this boat, you can admire the most beautiful buildings in the city, thanks to a unique guide: a true Tuscan sailor willing to answer all your questions.

Mom and Dad will be able to relax at the hotel’s spa, which offers treatments with high-quality products from Rephase, Santa Maria Novella, Sodashi and Black Pearl. We recommend the « Jet Leg » massage (50 minutes, 160€), a foot and leg massage that gives a surprising result!

DOLCE VITA with the FAMILy

Jérôme, father of Achille, 4 years and a half, from Brussels

 

 

Last September, we spent a long weekend in Florence, where we lodged at Four Seasons, a hotel facility which I strongly recommend for those who are traveling with children and who wish to enjoy a unique experience.

 

A LUXURIOUS URBAN RESORT

We particularly loved the hotel’s location. Talking of the location, Four Seasons Firenze is nestled in the city’s largest private park. Therein, you’ll feel like you are living in the countryside, whereas it is only a 10-minute walk from the city center and the famous Duomo.

This majestic park is embellished by many sculptures, all of which are very impressive. This natural environment is very safe because children can safely stroll through the aisles and gardens. Bicycles and golf carts with drivers are made available for guests to move around the park.

 

“Our son, Achilles, loved our long walks in the park, in search of squirrels, rabbits and lizards which populate this park.”

 

He particularly liked the shady playground and the sports activities offered to children such as football, basketball and archery

 

Details THAT MATTER

The hotel’s rooms are partitioned into two buildings situated at each end of the park. Our room found in La Villa and had a wonderful view to the century-old treetops. Our room was very spacious (about 50sqm) and had a comfortable sofa bed for our 4-year-old son. The bathroom was very large and kids’ welcome products (moisturizing cream, shower gel and shampoo) were arranged therein. Slippers and a child-sized bathrobe had been provided for our son.

Being built by the famous Medici family, the hotel is a real museum that is full of hand-painted frescoes, precious woods, marble and works of art.

During our check-in, Achille received a nice stuffed animal in the image of Pinocchio. Since the fable of Pinocchio was written in Florence, Four Seasons puts it in the spotlight in most of its cares dedicated to children: breakfast buffet, restaurant menu, games, etc. In the room, a puzzle and a basket of fresh fruit were also offered to our son.

 

“During our stay, most of the staff called Achille by his first name, a show of attentiveness that matters.”

 

At breakfast, our son really liked serving himself at the buffet whose height is suitable to children’s size.

What’s equally worth commending is the small mailbox in which children are invited to slip in a postcard with the image of Pinocchio, a card which we decided to address to Mamy.

The hotel’s swimming pool has a separate pool that is perfect for children, as it is heated to 36 degrees and has a height of 50cm. Sunscreen, swimming armbands, boards and even large inflatable unicorn- and donut-shape buoys are available for the little cherubs. Several times a day, the waiters go from sunbeds to sunbeds to offer water, cold towels and fruity granitas.

 

Delicacies

Tuscany is synonymous to local products: Chianti, exceptional cheeses and sausages, sun-drenched fruits and vegetables. Four Seasons buys from the nearby farms and small local producers. The result is an authentic and healthy cuisine. At lunchtime, we mostly ate at the poolside restaurant. On the menu, homemade pasta, pizzas, meat and fish served in a relaxed atmosphere.

We did not try the hotel’s award-winning restaurant nor the Japanese restaurant. However, we savored the picnic formula and we loved it! An intimate table was set up for us under a small wooden pavilion hidden in the park. The Chef had prepared us delicious Italian dishes accompanied by Tuscan wine. A friendly experience that I strongly recommend. In addition, the picnic is offered to children under 5 years!

 

Conclusively

Florence is the ideal destination for a family trip. Being smaller and less crowded than Rome, the city is characterized by its historic center where most of the street are pedestrian. Toddlers can walk around safely.

This destination combines cultural riches, shopping, cuisine and sunbathing. Everyone can find his happiness.

While staying at Four Seasons Firenze, we felt like spending a few days in a different era. Although we arrived tired and tense, we left the hotel in a state of total lightness, relishing the luck we’ve had by spending a few days in the dolce vita rhythm …
