Airbnb is the largest bed and breakfast service around the world and since its founding, in 2008, that has been growing massively, being one of the spearheads of the so called shared economy. 640,000 people have been counted for using Airbnb-listed homes on a peak night and the number of listings registered on the website is up to 2 million. It wouldn’t be surprising to find some high-end properties available. In this article we show you a special selection of three luxury homes in the cities of Paris, New York and Florence, for those who love design and interiors.
Villa Mangiacane, Florence, Italy
Located in the heart of Tuscany and surrounded by both olive grove and a vineyard, Villa Mangiacane is a noble and majestic villa originally designed by the great Renaissance master Michelangelo, on the fifteenth century. Recently it has been under renovation, under the guidance of Gianclaudio Tacca, a Florentine architect, and Ralf Krall, an international recognized interior decorator, who uncovered and restored the Renaissance frescos, possibly one of the most beautiful details found in its interior.
Villa Mangiacane is definitely a modern classic, combining its art and idyllic Tuscan setting with the splendor of the Renaissance and the modern day conveniences. The luxury pad has ten bedrooms and the guests can taste distinguished wines that are locally produced. A night can cost up to 6.600 euros as a result of this magnificent rustic glamour.
