Make a holiday rental home or villa in San Martino alla Palma, Italy your home away from home

The small village of San Martino alla Palma is nestled in the Florentine Hills, an unspoilt and green area just a few short kilometres outside of the city of Florence. As well as being extremely close to the airport (which can be important if you are travelling with impatient young children!) San Martino alla Palma is a great base for visiting the famous city, as it is near to the main attractions of the area, but secluded enough to provide a rural feel to your Tuscan vacation.

Things to do in San Martino alla Palma, Italy

With a population of just 600 people, San Martino alla Palma is a great destination for those that are seeking a quiet and sparsely populated holiday destination. The surrounding Florentine Hills are the perfect place to enjoy this new-found feeling of serenity, with a number of walks and hikes to be enjoyed amongst classic Tuscan landscapes of olive groves, vineyards, sunflowers and unspoilt greenery.

Amenities in the village are pretty much what you would expect in a place so small. There is an excellent grocery store, a traditional pizzeria and a butcher – so you are instantly presented with options for both eating in and eating out. Most visitors tend to mix and match, alternating days of cooking up traditional Tuscan recipes in the comfort of their holiday villa with evenings of dining out in San Martino alla Palma, Florence or one of the many other villages or towns that are dotted around the Florentine Hills.

Places to visit on holiday in San Martino alla Palma, Italy

It goes without saying that making the short (12km) trip into Florence should be a regular occurrence during your stay in San Martino alla Palma, but the spectacular city of art and culture is not the only place to visit in this diverse part of Italy. Settignano (22km) is a good option for its lovingly-maintained gardens and panoramic viewpoints, whilst Fiesole is a great day trip destination for history buffs and culture-vultures.

Weather in San Martino alla Palma, Italy

Many of the visitors to San Martino alla Palma choose the summer months as the time of their stay, hoping to make the very most of the glorious Tuscan sunshine. Finding a villa at this time of the year can be a tricky task, however, so it is worth knowing that the months of May and September also experience blissfully warm temperatures, hours of daily sunshine and relatively low rainfall. Winter temperatures are mild, but rainfall is more common.

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.

It was 5 star and had everything you could possibly want for a luxury break. Piero met us at the train station and walked with us to the apartment, explaining how everything worked and gave us lots of good restaurant recommendations and general information. Nothing was too much trouble. The location was in the hub of activities and all the main sights of Florence were in walking distance. We have visited several times before but would definitely return to the apartment again and would highly recommend it.
