About this listing
We rent two beautiful Apartments and a Studio in a renovated 15th century historic villa located under the famous Fiesole hills, an exclusive and residential florentine area, only 15 minutes from the center.
Take a city bus directly to town or park your car in our private parking lot.
The apartment is suitable for two people. We can add a cot to accommodate a third person for shorter term stays.
The bedroom is large and contains a queen size bed, television, and DSL internet connection. WiFi is available throughout the villa and our grounds. The room has a private bathroom with shower. The apartment’s kitchen is fully appointed and has French doors that open onto the garden, and in a private courtyard.
The entire apartment is furnished in the Tuscan country style.
From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
We had a wonderful time at palmerino with Frederica and her family. They were very kind and helpful. They arranged taxis, a small bed for our son and a chair for Him as Well.
The House is beautiful and our apartment very nice and had all the things we enedes udring our stay
We can recommend Frederica and her place to anyone.
There was not problem to find the place. The house is so beautiful, the paradise with huge garden. We were so happy to choose this sort of accommodation, we wouldn't have otherwise the chance to taste the filling to live in place like that. There was everything what was needed for three nights stay, Federica gave us tip where to go. We use the washing machine and dry clothes on cloth line on her gardens. No problem with parking car, it was locked on garden behind remote controlled gate. Highly recommend this place, it brings you peace into you mind.
I can't add much to the previous glowing reviews other than to say that they're accurate and it is safe to believe the hype. This was our first AirBNB stay and we're fearful we've peaked far too early.
Federica is the perfect host, even kindly inviting us to dinner and an art presentation she was hosting, and the apartment is wonderful. Il Palmerino (the Villa) is beautiful and its history is equally noteworthy.
There is plenty of public transport into town, or you can safely walk which we did on one occasion. The walks up the hill nearby are well worth the effort for wonderful views over Florence.
If we are ever back in Tuscany we will return without question.
Ci siamo trovati in una graziosa struttura, sita in una località tranquilla all'interno di una bella villa.
L'appartamento è costituito da una stanza da letto, una piccola cucina e il bagno; all'esterno un grande parco; tutto molto curato e con dotazioni complete.
Posto riservato e molto tranquillo.
Si raggiunge il centro con i mezzi pubblici (circa mezz'ora) o anche a piedi (meno di un'ora di sana camminata); il vantaggio per chi, come noi, voleva girare la Toscana è che si trova in una zona poco trafficata, a due passi da Fiesole e non lontano dal casello di Firenze Sud.
Molto gentili i proprietari.
Parcheggio gratuito all'interno ed all'esterno della villa.
Il rapporto qualità/prezzo è senza dubbio buono.

Federica is an excellent host and the apartment is truly charming, rustic, clean, cosy and appropriately equipped. The surrounding grounds are picturesque. Our expectations were exceeded.
I can't say enough about this beautiful gem of a place. The house is warm, charming, historical, clean and beautiful. Federica is a lovely and kind hostess that made our stay even more special with her conversation and attention to details. We bought a bottle of wine from their wine cellar (which happened to be built in the 1100s) and sat in the backyard enjoying conversation, the view of a castle on the hillside and beautiful flowers. The beds were extremely comfortable and we thourghly enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and a down comforter on the bed. But the highlight of our entire 12 day vacation was the breakfast that Federica made for us. Her homemade jams, fig tarts and bread were wonderful! We were in heaven and told her she should definatly post a picture of this on her airbnb page. It was worth every euro. The recommendation of a restaraunt in town was fabulous and the walk there was invigorating. Not too long but long enough to enjoy the outdoors and the scenery of this town that feels far from the bustling city of Florence although it's only a 15 minute bus ride away. The waiter at the restaraunt chose our dinner for us and we were not disappointed. The chocolate cake was absolutely HEAVEN and we went back the following night for more. Federica's directions to the bus stop and to the sites that we wanted to see were so clear that we never worried about getting lost.
I honestly can't recommend Federica and her home enough. You will not be disappointed and we hope to return one day soon.
What a wonderful Villa! We felt at home in this scenic place. Everything was perfect and beautiful. Everyone was very kind and helpful. We wanted to stay there forever. Will be back for sure!

About the Host, Federica
sono fiorentina e mi occupo della casa di famiglia, sono particolarmente ospitale con le persone che amano viaggiare per arricchirsi e conoscere altre visioni.Parlo Francese e Inglese e capisco lo Spagnolo,
sono benvenuti coloro che vogliono vedere Firenze da un'altro punto di vista rispetto a quello del turista tradizionale, alla ricerca di un'esperienza antica con tempi più lunghi e di contemplazione.
