History and heritage in the heart of Florence
A masterfully restored 19th century villa, Dimora Palanca has been intertwined with the arts for many years. It has an intense artistic heritage that is clearly visible throughout the property today.
Not satisfied with merely redesigning the property, the current owners and managers of the building carried out sympathetic restoration work with the intention of returning to the city. An historical piece of architecture dating from a time when Florence was the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. Patient attention to detail unearthed delights such as ceiling frescoes, stuccoes, the typical Tuscan pavé flooring, grand columns, marble floorsand wrought iron handrails. Life and light now flows throughout the property: the tranquil courtyard garden features a secluded lounge area; the old kitchen is now home to the gourmet restaurant Mimesi while the old orangery now boasts elegant suites overlooking the garden.
The Mimesi Restaurant
Located in the space originally occupied by the villa’s kitchens, Mimesi restaurant offers sophisticated cuisine.
Drawing inspiration from quintessential Mediterranean flavors, menus expertly combine local and seasonal ingredients with flavours and techniques encountered by the chef during his travels. Chef Giovanni Cerroni's personal approach redefines a journey into contemporary cuisine.
A beautiful garden in the heart of the city
The beautifully designed courtyard garden offers a tranquil haven in the heart of the city. Linking the main Villa with the Conservatory, the garden is secluded oasis in which to simply relax or enjoy an al-fresco lunch.
