The residence’s history in Florence

The main Villa dates back to the 19th century and was  initally called “Villino Margherita”. It has been the residence of the German historian Robert Davidsohn, who became famous for his essays on the history and the origins of Florence (his books are still taken  as a reference in the italian Universities).
The city of Florence placed a commemorative plaque at the entrance of the Villa (still present) to thank Mr. Davidsohn for his work which will remain heritage for future generations and for  the Florence history and culture.

The Villa got the name of “Villa Carlotta” when in 1957 the foremother Carlotta Buchholz bought the property and turned it into a wonderful Hotel that hosted famous celebrities from the fashion and the show business and from the literary culture of that time. Carlotta was a extraordinary lady, always elegant and attentive to her Guests’ needs.


She also showed her courteousness during the flood in 1966, when the river Arno overflowed and destroyed a large part of the historic centre of Florence. In that occasion Carlotta hosted many people who had lost everything and did not know where to go.


In 1982 the city of Florence gave to Carlotta a silver plaque to celebrate her 25 years of authentic “florentine hospitality”. Villa Carlotta represents “old-time” elegance and charme, and still maintains the warmth of home which Guests have always loved.


At the end of 1990 the management of the hotel was entrusted to a Company, but in 2010 the family of Mrs. Carlotta has come back in running the hotel; important restoration and upgrading works have been done, to make Villa Carlotta a place of excellence, elegance and hospitality, as Carlotta would have wished. And Carlotta’s family will always continue to run the hotel with love and passion!
