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

With a population of over 14,000 people, Fiesole is one of the biggest towns in the Florentine Hills, and it has some of the best holiday rental options in the area to boot. The delights of Florence are just a stones throw away, and on a clear day you can see them - as Fiesole sits in a lofty position, high up on a hillside in this idyllic area of Italy.

Things to do in Fiesole, Italy

Fiesole was once equally as important as Florence, and the main attractions in Fiesole are historical. The Badia (ancient cathedral) of St Romulus dates back to the early 11th century, and is just one of several old religious buildings that can be visited by the public. Another important building from the same time period is the Palazzo Vescovile – the old bishop's palace.

The town also has some impressive parks and gardens, which are ideal for relaxing in, perhaps with a good book. The Parco della Rimembranza is a particularly nice option, with seating areas, trees, well maintained gardens and plenty of areas where you can escape the heat of the midday summer sun and let the everyday stresses and strains melt away.

Florence is just 8km away, and is easy to reach – being just a few stops away on the number 7 bus. Taking public transport will allow you to make the most of the eating and drinking options in this fine city – which is exactly what you are likely to want to do after a busy day or sightseeing and enjoying this icon of Tuscany.

Places to visit on holiday in Fiesole, Italy

Florence (8km) is of course the main place to visit after you have explored Fiesole and got settled in to your self-catering accommodation. Also well worth visiting are some of the smaller villages of the Florentine Hills, such as San Martino alla Palma (19km) and San Vincenzo a Torri (18km), which can almost take you back in time to a simpler, more traditional way of life.

Weather in Fiesole, Italy

You dreams of sunny days and balmy Tuscan evenings can come true if you visit Fiesole between May and September, as the daily average temperature for this period is a respectable 23C. July and August are the hottest months, with the mercury often rising above the 30C mark during these peak-season months.

Flights to Fiesole, Italy

Peretola Airport (FLR) is located just 11km from Fiesole, and can be reached from the UK by way of flight from London Gatwick through the Italian airline Meridiana. Another option is to fly to Pisa Airport (PSA) and enjoy a scenic drive through the Tuscan countryside in order to get to your destination of choice.

Non abbiamo potuto sfruttare al meglio le due terrazze, era il periodo più freddo dell'anno, ma nonostante ciò, facendo capolino, non abbiamo rinunciato alla vista mozzafiato. L'appartamento è ben pulito, tenuto bene e attrezzatissimo. Costantemente riscaldato non abbiamo sofferto il freddo in nessun giorno della nostra permanenza. Le scale? Salire le scale fa bene alla salute e quindi abbiamo unito l'utile al salutare. Grazie ai preziosi consigli del signor Giovanni siamo riusciti a sopperire ad ogni nostra piccola defaillance. Sicuramente, quando torneremo a Firenze, fisseremo le date del nostro soggiorno in base alla disponibilità dell'appartamento. Grazie ancora signor Giovanni e, sicuramente, a presto.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The apartment Gelso (Mulberry) is on one floor of the Casale le Giuncarelli, is large and well-appointed with views over Florence in the distance. The swimming pool and sunbed area are kept immaculate by Daniela, the owner and manager, daily. There is a terrace outside shared with three other apartments which overlooks the gardens. We enjoyed a one week stay there in mid-September. Daniela is around early most mornings for advice and information and is always helpful. Her old dog Heidi stays around most of the time and only once tried to join us for dinner. The gardens are well laid out and kept and a lazy time can be spent around the pool and gazebo. There are individual and a larger communal barbecue. We chose the apartment as a base to visit Florence. There is a local and frequent bus service from Fiesole 2Km away to the centre of Florence, partially down a rough stone track. Also be aware that parking in the village can be difficult and the streets are narrow, so don’t hire a large car. If you are a walker the area would be ideal. Cooking facilities do not include an oven or “toaster” as we would know in the UK – it is a Forman type grill. There is a range of places to eat in Fiesole and further afield.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Clean and well kept villa. Large garden and patio area with bbq. Villa was modern with elements of wooden beams for additional character. Good basic kitchen facilities, open plan to dining and lounge area. 3 good double bedrooms one ensuite with another separate bathroom. Owners met us outside villa on our arrival at midnight! Nice touch. She had baked a cake and left some basic provisions. The position of villa meant shopping for food was only 5 minutes away . The train station was also close by with only an 11 minute journey into Florence. Fiesole was a charming suburb of Florence with some nice cafes and bars. Countryside is fantastic. Would 100% recommend this villa.
