NATURE IN A ROOM

Benci House has been conceived to bring emotions which are able to connect our guest to the surrounding Place.
Geographical identity, Nature and the scents of our land become the added value of a
sensory experience which goes beyond the simple inhabiting.

Each room, designed by Studio
Archea from Florence, is rigorously handmade by specialized craftsmen,
who have used mainly wood coming from Tuscany, from which derive the allure,
the colours and the four different olfactory sensations of the CHESTNUT TREE, CYPRESS, WALNUT TREE and OAK rooms.

The panoramic terrace provides a beautiful view on Giardino
Bardini and gives our guest the unique feeling of receiving the keys to the City.
