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.

The facilities and furniture were nice but very basic, also was the equipment of the kitchen. Tip: some more glasses, plates and cutlery.. An extra chair and table in the sitting room and some kind of airco or fan in the bedroom under the roof would make it a lot more comfortable. We loved the beautifull old house, natural swimming pool and the location of the house. Close to Firenze but in a very quiet spot. In the neigbourhood are a few good restaurants. The owner Babette was very kind and helpfull. I would defenitly reccomend this place to friends or family..

Silvia picked us up at the Airport which was a great. The apartment was very spacious and very clean with lots of cuboards so we were able to unpack all our suitcases and even store the cases away which was great as we rented for three weeks. They provided us with some breakfast items so we had something for the morning which was fantasic. We wanted to experience living amongst the Italians and we got that great experience, many shops close by and the tram station to take you downtown Florence and if you buy ten trips it only cost 1 euro, very cheap. Silvia and Luidi were very helpful. I would rent this apartment again. We had a great vacation and cannot wait to return to Italy, it is our best place in the world. Thanks Desiree and David Dallas from Vancouver Canada.
