Welcome to Guild Living Florence.

Guild Living is a new community that will combine easy access to the cultural hub that is Florence, within a secluded natural setting. Guild Living Florence will be located in a unique space that comprises acres of woodland, overlooking the splendour of the Tuscan hills. A captivating private retreat – to relax, recover, grow and learn.

Good health in later life is our priority. Guild will provide the foundation to enable this. Our unique combination of global, academic expertise, and bespoke architecture and design – combined with holistic wellness programming – is not like anything you have seen before. The outcomes will be better social connections, a sense of belonging and purpose, and the long-term reassurance of support.

A place of culture and beauty.

As a true community, we are open to all generations, offering everything to satisfy the appetites of mind, body and soul. The smell of the pine as you stroll through the forest. A delicious meal in the evening, created especially for you by a chef who knows all your preferences. Pilates, painting, or maybe a drink or two with friends in between. This is life at Guild Living Florence. A place to live life to the full.

Our Location.


Our community is located on the site of the former Nobel Explosives Factory. The company was founded by Alfred Nobel, the Swedish chemist and founder of the eponymous Peace Prize. The site was home to a dynamite factory for a good half of the twentieth century, and played a central role in the supply of the Italian Army during the two world wars.

Today, the site has been redeveloped into a much more peaceful place, but many of the original buildings have been preserved (including the villa housing our Nobel Factory Museum). Find out more here.
