“ Lovely apartment in the hills near Florence ”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic stay in this lovely apartment in a beautiful Tuscan farmhouse in the hills overlooking Florence.
Andrea the host was very welcoming and could not be more helpful. The apartment is spacious with 2 generous reception rooms and a well equipped kitchen. The first bedroom has a lovely large ensuite bathroom, the second bedroom, also ensuite has a third bed in a cute mezzanine above. The apartment is beautifully decorated with antique furniture and lovely artwork. Andrea is a pianist and during the day the sound of beautiful music drifted up from below.
Outside is a private terrace with a millstone table, and a pool shared with the 2 other apartments which offered a welcome cool down from the August heat.
The location is up a steep road from Caldine with views of Fiesole and Florence further down the valley. Getting into Florence was easy using the train from Caldine. This was the perfect base both for exploring Florence and the surrounding area and for relaxing among the olive groves.

“What an elegant, charming, and relaxing place to stay!”

We loved our time here. The place is spacious and nicely furnished, has wifi and English TV, and a couple of very friendly kitties! The owner, Andrea, speaks excellent English, and was very attentive to our every need. It's very peaceful, with a nice view overlooking olive orchards and vineyards. It was very clean, and the kitchen was well-supplied with utensils. You must have a car to stay here - it's out in the hills above Florence on one of those narrow, winding, steep italian roads. You'll have fun driving it! There is a grocery store in Caldine down the hill, and a train that goes right into Florence in a few minutes. If you want to escape the heat and noise and tourists of Florence, stay here! The master bedroom has a large bed, the second bedroom has two twins with a third in an upstairs loft area. Nice swimming pool, too. It was unseasonably cool for July when we were there so we didn't need the air conditioning, but it's available.

We stayed at Andrea's appartment for 4 nights. The location is magically placed among olive trees in the hills behind Fiesole. The view is stunning all day. the appartement is more than comfortable with a parent suite and a children suite, a fully equiped kitchen, a terrace. Very clean, and quiet. Andrea is a wonderful host, totally dedicated to the happiness of his guests.

“Exceptional Agriturismo in Fiesole”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic stay with Andrea and Sandra (the hosts) in this fantastic place. This is the most beautiful spot in Fiesole - the view is outstanding, the garden and the surroundings are exceptionally beautiful, and the apartment we stayed in was simply great - it sleeps 6 easily at a price that is lower than a single room in a hotel in Florence. Add to this a pool with a view over Fiesole - it is heaven! To put it short, this is the best agriturismo that I have ever stayed in and it is extremely competitively prices. FANTASTIC.

“Unique, relaxing, spacious, great view, it is hard to leave such a beautiful place”
Reviewed 11 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

It is the second time my family and me come to visit La Fattoria il Leccio, the owners are nice and welcoming, always there when you need anything. The different apartments are all nice and spacious, with antique furniture, wifi and tv facilities, the gardens safe even with our baby of 2 years old. We are going back soon to Fattoria il Leccio, it is a great place for a vacation with all the facilities, where you feel home. Thank you Passigli family, see you soon!
