Description

Villa Fiesole is a beautiful villa located a few minutes drive from the centre of Florence, along a secondary road leading from the city to Fiesole hill.

A place of inspiration for Dante Alighieri and home to the family of Beatrice Portinari family, the woman loved by the supreme poet, Villa Fiesole was rescued and restored by Count Pier Francesco Rimbotti after World War II and has remained a family property ever since.

Provided with private access and enclosed by tall stone walls with a remote-controlled gate, the villa enjoys stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the utmost privacy and tranquility. The grounds feature a beautiful garden (5,000 sqm) laid out in the classic “Italian style”, characterised by tall pines, majestic cypress trees, hydrangeas and paths lined with clipped hedges.
In the garden there is a covered gazebo, equipped with couches and a lovely jacuzzi (for 6 people), ideal for relaxing while immersed in the greenery.
Moreover, at guests' disposal a spacious terrace overlooking the garden with sitting area and sun loungers.

Villa Fiesole is ideally located, just a short drive from Florence centre and Fiesole, along a narrow road that offers breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
Fiesole is a small Etruscan town, situated on a hilltop offering a very scenic view of Florence. Here you can admire several Etruscan and Roman remains preserved in the vast archaeological area or take a walk uphill to the Monastery of San Francesco that boasts, maybe, the best view of Florence.
We suggest you also visit the small medieval village of Maiano, famous for its quarries of “pietra serena” used by great artists of the Florentine Renaissance.
Moreover, in an hour's drive you will reach the beautiful region of Chianti Classico, known worldwide for the prestigious wine to which it gives birth (the typical mark of the Gallo Nero) and for its evocative sceneries and charming villages, from the nearby Greve to Panzano, from Castellina to Radda.
For sport lovers, several options are available: trekking and biking paths; tennis courts and football pitches at the Chianti Country Club (17 km); golf courses at the Circolo Golf Ugolino (17 km); riding stables at the Equestrian Centre Antellino (13 km).
