                  Great villa in a peaceful setting on outskirts of Florence

                  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.
