At about 2 km from the villa is the town of Fiesole, one of the most prestigious areas of the hills around Florence, which since the end of the eighteenth century was one of the favorite places to stay by foreigners in Italy and who already bought the villas of Florentine nobility, restructuring them and providing them with beautiful gardens.

The center of the city is the Piazza Mino da Fiesole, where you will find the impressive Romanesque cathedral, Altoviti Palace (now the seminary), and the Municipality. Next to the seminar, a short but steep climb, leads to the Church of San Francesco.

Always near Piazza Mino, northbound, is the archaeological site with the Roman Theater, perfectly preserved, the remains of a necropolis of Roman baths and some other buildings of late-imperial. The theater is home to a theater season and summer music known as 'Fiesole Summer'.

A few meters from the Roman Theatre is the entrance of the Bandini Museum, home to an important and extensive collection of ceramics by Della Robbia.

The villa is only just 8 km from Florence which is easily accessible by bus. 7 Piazza Mino

Beautiful country house above Florence

  • 5 of 5

Daniela was awesome. Attentive to every need and very helpful with how to get around and what to see and do. The house was very comfortable for 2 couples or a family and the setting and views are beautiful. Fiesole is quaint and a very nice jump off point for exploring Florence and the area. Don't miss trying the local pastry shop across the street from the supermercado. Black berry and chocolate infused croissants. Mmmmm. So good and freshly baked. Breads and pecorino cheese and Tuscany salami from the local shops are excellent too. Thanks Daniela for a great vacation.

Wonderful views over Floerence near Fisole

  • 4 of 5

The apartment Gelso (Mulberry) is on one floor of the Casale le Giuncarelli, is large and well-appointed with views over Florence in the distance. 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.

We booked this property for the last three days of a 16 day trip and it was perfect in every way. Beautiful, relaxing amazing accommodations and the price can't be beat. The Daniela was very accommodating and truly made us feel at home. Very close to the Florence bus routes. We could have stayed a week.

Excellente adresse à deux pas de Florence à ne pas manquer !

  • 5 of 5

Un séjour parfait chez Daniela à la Casale Giuncarelli. Idéalement situé à 2km de Florence dans la petite ville de Fiesiole, sa situation est très pratique pour visiter la ville de Florence en prenant le bus n7. Le site est magnifique avec une vue splendide sur tout Florence. Daniela nous a chaleureusement accueilli avec tant d'attentions, très appréciables pour démarrer le séjour : thé, café, bouteille de vin et lessive et savons parfumés aux senteurs de la Toscane. Un grand merci aussi Daniela pour tous vos précieux conseils. Après les visites denses de Florence, casale Giuncarelli est un vrai havre de paix, l'air est plus frais, le logement et la piscine sont agencés avec beaucoup de goût et qualité. Les enfants étaient ravis de partager aussi le séjour avec les chats Coco, Nina, Zéro et le chien kiki.

Bref une adresse comme on les aime, pleine de vie et d'échanges authentiques. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir !
