The Location

A stone’s throw from the Arno in a quiet upmarket residential area, Velona’s Jungle Luxury Suites is still close to the tourist meccas of central Florence.  The Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio are 15 minutes’ amble through the ancient streets but you’re far enough away to find sanctuary at the end of a day’s sight-seeing.

  • The eclectic décor throughout Velona’s Jungle Luxury Suites feels like you’re staying in the home of the Italian family you didn’t know you have…
  • The breakfasts are plentiful, including homemade smoothies, and are served until midday – allowing you to make the most of the amazing beds
  • Veronica’s family are keen to promote environmental sustainability wherever possible and are on hand with information on exploring the city by foot or by bike – you can also discover the joys of Tuscany on foot or by e-bike with a wonderful guide Alessandro, Veronica’s partner
  • The opportunity to discover a calmer, more stylish side of Florence
  • Stunning and varied rooms, each with enough space for seating areas providing stylish sanctuaries
  • The en-suite bathrooms are amazing, with huge walk-in rain showers to wash away a day’s walking
  • Flat screen TVs, drinks and snacks in each room
  • Wifi and air con are available throughout the house
  • Two of the rooms have private balconies, and the living room fronts an ancient tower, once part of Florence’s medieval walls
  • Healthy and varied breakfast served until midday, with excellent suggestions available for dining out in the evenings

The super charming host Veronica is part of family of avid collectors that is in evidence throughout the suites – they also have an antiques shop just around the corner.  Veronica’s knowledge and passion for the city means she is the perfect guide for planning your historical tour or simply finding the best neighbourhood coffee.
