the Florentine hills
A stone's throw from Florence, naturally
Nestled in the Florentine hills for over six centuries, the Fattoria Poggio di Fiesole is a family owned, organic olive farm. Situated just outside of the historic town of Fiesole, the farm spreads out over twenty hectares of gently sloping woods and olive groves.
At the heart of the property, tucked behind stands of towering cypresses, sits the fattoria’s 15th century farmhouse. Full of the country charm so bountiful in this region, the classic stone and mortar farmhouse includes fully equipped apartments for rent.
Organic, Tuscan, distinct
For the past 20 years, here at Poggio di Fiesole we have proudly produced only ICEA (previously AIAB) certified organic extra virgin olive oil, using exclusively olives from our farm. The fattoria’s 3,300 trees of traditional varieties; such as Leccino, Frantoio, Pendolino, and Moraiolo, produce a nutrient dense, high quality oil with a distinctive character.
We are fortunate to be located in the Florence hills, at the very heart of the Tuscan IGP area.
Casa Nova is a spacious and bright apartment that can accommodate up to five people. It overlooks a garden that embraces the Mugnone valley as far as the city of Florence. The flat combines the convenience and comfort of a modern home with the charm of a classic country home, surrounded by nature.
Cappella is a very charming, intimate, yet fully equipped, studio apartment. The lower level of the flat is an open space which allows guests to easily relax on the sofa with a breathtaking view of the countryside, cook a meal in the hideaway kitchen, or simply enjoy the clean air and the panorama from the terrace. The sleeping quarters are located up a handmade, wooden spiral staircase.
If you are looking for a comfortable apartment, a few kilometers from the historic center of Florence and yet away from traffic and confusion, Bastioni is your solution. In the splendid setting of the Tuscan countryside, between olive trees and hills and just 5 minutes by car from the main square of Fiesole, the apartment allows for a relaxed and pleasant stay.
Amazing place I definitely recommend for anyone who wants to visit Florence and its surrounding. Davide is a really nice and kind host. ++ the viewpoint from the terasse of the flat is beautiful (not to miss).
