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

The photos shown in the listing are very accurate but do not come close to being there in person and having the history and the beauty of the house and its' surroundings wash over you. The property was very well maintained, and the personal touches of the owner's wonderful antiques and books make it easy to imagine that you are living there in your own very well-loved home. My personal favorite day was a day I stayed behind alone while the others went into Florence. Working in the wonderful Tuscan kitchen and looking through the door across the gorgeous landscape was a dream come true. And strolling through the dining room doors onto the terrace and just sitting and watching the birds soar in the quiet of the landscape was bliss as I had never imagined. Another in our group, a professional musician, was transported every time he sat down at the grand piano in the wonderful acoustically live music room. His joy of spending any spare moment at the instrument was our joy in listening. Kate kindly helped us with printing tickets for the Duomo and even met us with them in Florence near the Duomo. They were both kind and helpful in walking us through the house when we arrived and pointing out how various features work. We all enjoyed drives through the countryside and visiting several of the other Chianti villages and the drives up to the tiny villages of Lamole, Volpaia and Vertine. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone I know and I would go back again in a heartbeat, given the opportunity. Thank you so much, Kate and Francesco, for giving us memories like we've never made before.

Very comfortable bed. Thank you!
