The property is one of, about ten set in a large area of olive groves. It shares a pool with four other properties, though when we were there only two were occupied and one of them by someone who is local and works, so the vast majority of the time we had the pool to ourselves. The views are fantastic, it is very peaceful, however you can reach many of the Tuscan "must sees" easily, Pisa is 50 minutes, San Gimignano and Volterra about 30 each, Sienna in one hour, Florence is over an hour and best reached by train. The house itself is nice and has everything you need. We were a group of two adults and four children, aged 12-19, everybody enjoyed it. There are plenty of restaurants within fifteen minutes of the house, the nearest being a 5 minute drive - you would be an enthusiastic walker to try it on foot :-) We would all be happy to stay here again.
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.
