Make a holiday rental home or villa in Settignano, Italy your home away from home

If you are planning on holidaying in the wonderful city of Florence, you can choose to stay in the city itself – or you may instead decide to base yourself in an outlying rural village such as Settignano. Settignano is an attractive hamlet nestled in a picturesque area of the Florentine Hills, just 6km north-east of Florence.

Things to do in Settignano, Italy

Settignano is a rural village that offers all of the scenery you will have dreamed of when planning your perfect Tuscan vacation. This includes rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and oak trees that are ideal for walking in and exploring around. As you stroll amongst this unspoilt paradise you will find it hard to believe that the attractions of a large city are also literally on your doorstep.

Around the village are several sites of interest, the majority of which are located around the main piazza. This is also where you will find local businesses, which go about their duties in much the same way as they have done for generations. You will not find any fast food joints or high street chains here – only family grocers, small food shops and traditional Tuscan businesses offering local goods at local prices.

Once you have settled in to Settignano you will likely wish to explore the delights of Florence, and there are a number of ways to get to this icon of Tuscany. Public transport links between the two destinations are good, hire car is easy to arrange and offers the most in the way of flexibility, and you can even reach Florence by bicycle in around half an hour – though you may be ready for an energy-boosting Italian coffee by the time you get there!

Places to visit on holiday in Settignano, Italy

If you have any time left after you have enjoyed Settignano and spent a few days exploring Florence, you may wish to venture out and see what else the Florentine Hills have to offer. Fiesole is just 5km away, and offers some stunning views from its lofty position. The town also has historic attractions that include Roman baths and the 11th century Cathedral of St Romulus.

Weather in Settignano, Italy

With Settignano being so close to Florence, the weather in the village is almost identical to that of the city. This means long, hot summers that have a daily average high temperature of 28C, and mild winters – albeit with increased rainfall. Spring is another particularly pleasant time for a visit, and has an average daily temperature of 23C.

Flights to Settignano, Italy

If you are able to find a suitable flight, Florence Peretola Airport (FLR) is the place to head in order to get to Settignano, as at 15km away it is literally on the doorstep of the village. At time of writing, however, the only direct flight from the UK to this airport was through Italian airline Meridiana, so you may have to book well in advance to get a seat on this route.

Due to our son's specific needs such as certain preferences in food and drinks, we had been in contact with Simone prior to arrival in Florence. From the get go he offered to assist in every way possible to make our holiday especially for our son as smooth as possible. I agree with everybody's comments about Simone being the best host ever. Very easy to talk to and makes himself accessible and available for queries and inquiries alike. Regarding the apartment, it felt like home soon as we set foot in it. Spacious and tastefully decorated. It had everything one needs. We had a welcome basket of fruits, wine and the fridge as stacked with milk and water. Nice treat! We had a rental car and Simone helped us find an overnight car park next door but one to the apartment. Great! The neighborhood is safe. Walking distance to most tourist attractions and the taxi drivers seem to know the location so very reassuring. Taxi stand about 2 minutes across the road from the apartment. It's hard to leave this place at the end of our holidays. I would gladly recommend this place to everyone. If we're ever back in Florence, would stay here again. Simone, a huge thank you!!

We were pleasantly surprised to find that it exceeded our expectations. The location is exactly what we were looking for - quiet street but close to everything we wanted to see. The apartment itself is very well laid out, and the bathroom and kitchen are very modern. We spent every late afternoon up on the terrace - it is amazing. My friends at home can't believe my pictures taken from it. Lucia is a gracious and helpful hostess.
