My wife and I spent eight days at Poggio Al Sole, a few miles east of Fiesole, in late September. The location is perfect for exploring Florence and the Tuscan region.
Fiesole has bus service to the heart of Florence every 15 minutes until midnight - the best way to avoid the parking hassles near Florence.
To say our hosts were more than helpful would be an understatement - Giovanni gave us lots of great tips about travel & exploring the region. They are a genuinely nice couple!
The room we had was very clean and quite, tidied up everyday - his farm is picturesque with the most stunning views of the countryside - he grows olives, pears, saffron, tomatoes, grapes, walnuts and figs (which I helped him harvest one beautiful day).
Deer and, on occasion, wild boar can be seen from the property.
Antoinetta's breakfasts were also wonderful - varied each day with most items made in their kitchen.
On reason that we picked this agriturismo was that it had NO POOL - thank god!
To us, a true farm vacation would seem weird with the yelling and splashing of kids around a pool - Poggio Al Sole was a quiet dream for us. We will surely return someday and Giovanni promised us that he would never put in a swimming pool on his beautiful farm.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Poggio al Sole lies in the midst of the magnificent scenario of the Florentine hillsides, and leans over the gentle slopes of the Mugnone valley. It rests on a 450 m hill, 6 kilometers from Fiesole in a neighbourhood called Torre di Buiano, only 8 kilometres from Florence. This viewpoint surrounded by olive groves, cypress trees and fruit trees is named after the sunny position it offers from sunrise to sunset, in summer and winter as well. ... more less
