On the hills of Florence, Villa Pietro is perfect for those that want to be surrounded by the sound of bees buzzing and birds singing, yet only 20 minutes from Florence and 10 minutes to charming the hill towns of Fiesole and Settignano. A quaint sleepy little village full of charm and character is located at the bottom of the hill. Easy access the main highway for longer day trips. English speaking housekeeper / villa manager who is an excellent cook, swimming pool, dreamy views.
Set among three acres of beautiful gardens that include a fruit orchard, olive grove and cypress trees, you have a picturesque view of the valley below. The sounds of birds may be all you hear, as the scent of jasmine mingles with evergreen. It is hard to believe you are just 15 minutes from beautiful towns and villages.
Rosella, your English speaking housekeeper is also a fantastic cook. She can prepare a simple dinner to be waiting for you to heat up when you get back from a day of sightseeing, or create a memorable 5 course dinner paired with local wines and waiter served. Perhaps you are in the mood for a cooking lesson, before you sit down to eat lunch or dinner. Whatever you choose, you won't be disappointed.
