My wife and I spent 5 nights at Casa Palmira and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's located in the hills above Fiesole about 10 km from Florence. Florence is easily accessible by car or the SITA bus that stops on Via Faentina in front of the property. I'd recommend the SITA bus for day trips to Florence as driving/parking in Florence can be a hassle. Note that the last SITA bus back to Casa Palmira from Florence is 7:45 pm. Casa Palmira provides a tranquil retreat after a day of site seeing in Florence. I can't say enough good things about Assunta and Stefano. They are wonderful people and hosts. Assunta's scrambled eggs at breakfast are fantastic! Stefano handles the wine, cheese, bruschetta and salumi appetizers provided daily before dinner. There is no restaurant at Casa Palmira but there are good restaurants nearby (Il Feriolo and the more casual but very good 4 Strade). We'll definitely return to Casa Palmira!
