    Make a holiday rental home or villa in Settignano, Italy your home away from home

    If you are planning on holidaying in the wonderful city of Florence, you can choose to stay in the city itself – or you may instead decide to base yourself in an outlying rural village such as Settignano. Settignano is an attractive hamlet nestled in a picturesque area of the Florentine Hills, just 6km north-east of Florence.

    Things to do in Settignano, Italy

    Settignano is a rural village that offers all of the scenery you will have dreamed of when planning your perfect Tuscan vacation. This includes rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and oak trees that are ideal for walking in and exploring around. As you stroll amongst this unspoilt paradise you will find it hard to believe that the attractions of a large city are also literally on your doorstep.

    Around the village are several sites of interest, the majority of which are located around the main piazza. This is also where you will find local businesses, which go about their duties in much the same way as they have done for generations. You will not find any fast food joints or high street chains here – only family grocers, small food shops and traditional Tuscan businesses offering local goods at local prices.

    Once you have settled in to Settignano you will likely wish to explore the delights of Florence, and there are a number of ways to get to this icon of Tuscany. Public transport links between the two destinations are good, hire car is easy to arrange and offers the most in the way of flexibility, and you can even reach Florence by bicycle in around half an hour – though you may be ready for an energy-boosting Italian coffee by the time you get there!

    Places to visit on holiday in Settignano, Italy

    If you have any time left after you have enjoyed Settignano and spent a few days exploring Florence, you may wish to venture out and see what else the Florentine Hills have to offer. Fiesole is just 5km away, and offers some stunning views from its lofty position. The town also has historic attractions that include Roman baths and the 11th century Cathedral of St Romulus.

    Weather in Settignano, Italy

    With Settignano being so close to Florence, the weather in the village is almost identical to that of the city. This means long, hot summers that have a daily average high temperature of 28C, and mild winters – albeit with increased rainfall. Spring is another particularly pleasant time for a visit, and has an average daily temperature of 23C.

    Flights to Settignano, Italy

    If you are able to find a suitable flight, Florence Peretola Airport (FLR) is the place to head in order to get to Settignano, as at 15km away it is literally on the doorstep of the village. At time of writing, however, the only direct flight from the UK to this airport was through Italian airline Meridiana, so you may have to book well in advance to get a seat on this route.
