I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars, it was just lovely. The property is fabulous, but it's the owner who makes it exceptional. The rooms were spacious, beautifully decorated, and grounds and views were breathtaking, you had Florence at your feet. The place is very private, come and go as you please, and Florence is a short drive/bus ride away. I didn't pay enough attention when reading about this place to realize we needed a car, but you absolutely do. Daniela not only drove us into Florence to rent one, she brokered a deal, then waited so we could follow he back so we didn't get lost on our first day. She also takes the extra steps to make you feel special. She had a bottle of wine waiting, bread and coffee/tea and homemade jam for the morning, all just to make your stay so much more comfortable and inviting. From then on, anything we needed, from directions (she brought maps and gave detailed instructions) to dining recommendations, she was there. By the time we left it felt like we had stayed with a friend, and wished we had allowed for more time at this gorgeous place. I would come back here in a heart beat, hopefully someday I can. Thanks Daniela, you are a treasure. So very sincerely, S
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
