Caldine Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 Farmhouses in Fiesole Nr. Florence City, Tuscany, Italy - Peaceful Rural Atmosphere Among Olive Groves With Panoramic Views On Fiesole And Florence

This beautiful 19th century country home, recently restored, is part of the “ Fattoria Il Leccio” lived and owned by the Passigli family for four generations. It sits on top of a hill overlooking the Valle del Mugnone, a gorgeous valley that offers panoramic views of gently slopping hills cultivated with well-tended olive groves as well as views of the town of Fiesole and the city of Florence. Giovanni Boccaccio in his 13th Century Decameron, locates some of his stories in this valley. The large shared pool, not visible from the house and surrounded by vegetation is salt treated. Personal transportation is advised. Private car service can be provided at additional cost. A few minutes away from the house there is the Fiesole/Caldine train station, with free parking, where the train reaches the Santa Maria Novella Central Station in Florence in 12 minutes. Caldine has also buses to Florence, a supermarket as well as post office and bank. It also has doctor and ambulance service. Please contact us for further details. FROM MAY 15TH TO OCTOBER 15TH 20% DISCOUNT ON LISTED PRICES FOR ONLY 2 PEOPLE IN THE SAME BEDROOM

About Lorenzo Passigli

My wife and our two children live on the property. My wife and I are professionals, she is a retired business administrator and I’m a Pianist and a Professor of Piano at the Conservatory of Ferrara. Our son and

daughter,as well as managing the farm, are both University students.

Lorenzo Passigli purchased this farmhouse in 1949

Why Lorenzo Passigli chose Metropolitan City of Florence

I inherited this property. The vacation rentals help subsidize our Agricultural firm 'Fattoria Il Leccio' that produces top quality olive oil.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Peaceful country stay overlooking one of the most beautiful valleys in Tuscany and enjoying a refreshing swim in the pool after spending a morning or afternoon immersed in the beauty of the Renaissance that is found in Florence or other nearby towns like Siena, Pisa, Lucca and many more. As well as tasting one of the world’s top quality olive oils.

In November share our olive harvest, as we pick the olives and bring them to the pressing with a taste of one of the best freshly squeezed olive oil in the world, on the traditional "Fettunta", the Tuscan toast with a light scent of garlic.

From November to March enjoy visiting the Renaissance Art in Florence in low season, with no crouds.

Also, from October to April attend the numerous cultural events in Florence, with special focus on the high level international chamber music series of Amici della Musica in Florence, created and organized by our family since the 1920's.
