Last spring my wife and I decided we needed a week to relax, and what better place to find that relaxation then Toscane. So we decided to book a week's holiday at Casale Giuncarelli.
After an adventurous trip we arrived safely in Fiesole where we decided to have a refreshing drink before we went looking for the lovely studio we rented. The website and pictures had given us high hopes and when we arrived and were greeted by the ever young and enthusiast Daniella these hopes only rose higher. The studio was marvellous, well maintained, clean, fresh and above all, way more cosy then we had imagined. The grounds of the Casale just breathed that calm and relax Tuscany atmosphere.
We lost no time and jumped right into both the swimming pool and the holiday relaxation. Daniella was a real treasurechest of information, tips and good advice about what to visit and when. Our decision to buy museum tickets online weeks before we went was a good one, the prices were not only reasonable but it saved us hours of waiting in line and gave us ample opportunity to schedule our visits to Firenze.
We loved every second we spent here and we will most definitely be returning to visit Daniella in the coming years because a week is not enough to see everything there is to see in Firenze. So next time we will be staying 2 weeks.
Wonderful appartments with wonderful proprietress. My family really enjoyed the holidays and it was very comfortble for me to work and live there.
La casa dove ero alloggiata offriva un ambiente piacevole e comodo, tutto era in buono stato. Non si deve dimenticare la bellezza dei dintorni. Il proprietario ( una signora) era molto gentile e sempre soccorrevole. Non lontano dalla casa ci sono tante attrazioni sopratutto della cultura e anche numerose possibilità di godere le specialità del bel paese.
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 places preferred by foreigners living in Italy and who already purchased the villas of the Florentine nobility, restructuring them and providing them with beautiful gardens.
The city center is Piazza Mino da Fiesole, where are the imposing Romanesque cathedral, Altoviti Palace (now the seminary), and the Municipality. Next to the seminar, a short but steep climb, it 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, the Roman baths and some other buildings of a late-Roman. 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 can be easily reached by bus. 7 Piazza Mino
