Additionally, it is decorated with many interesting artifacts from around the world. For our group of 8, with 2 couples and 4 singles each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are 4 courtyards and beautiful grounds with swimming pool. It is walking distance to restaurants and to a larger town. It is about a 9 minute drive from Florence and very close to Siena, and in Chianti country. The owner, whom lives on the property was very gracious, accommodating, and helpful. I cannot recommend this property enough - It is absolutely fabulous!

The orthopaedic mattresses were simply exceptional it was like sleeping on a cloud. We loved barbecuing in the evenings while sipping a glas of chianti. Florence was only 20 minutes drive from the villa. The roads a really easy and not as difficult as in other parts of Tuscany. Even my wife that had only been driving for a few months had no issues driving. Will definitely go back!!!

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.
