Our family spent 4 nights here (28-31 July 2013) and loved it. We were looking for a place in the hills outside of Florence so that at the end of the day we could "retreat" and just relax and unwind - Casa Palmira fit that to a "T". Assunta and Stefano are warm, gracious and accommodating hosts who went out of their way to make us comfortable and help us with logistics (like getting us to/from Fiesole and Florence more than once, getting us bus tickets in advance, cooking food at breakfast to suit our tastes). The room was very comfortable and clean, breakfast was superb, the local cats/kittens were very entertaining, the air was so refreshing, and the rural setting was just wonderful.
If you are without a car, you will need to figure out the bus routes and schedule (there is a bus stop about 100m from the front door, Assunta/Stefano will help you with that too. There is also a great restaurant option about a mile away towards Fiesole.
I highly recommend this location for anyone wanting to stay outside the city - you will definitely enjoy it!
