Picturesque Fiesole Apartment

About the home
Comfortable newly restored apartment with free parking and splendid views. The apartment is located in the ancient hamlet of Ponte alla Badia which is reached from a bridge on the boundary of Florence and Fiesole. The building was constructed around the 1600’s as a convent but was converted into apartments in more recent times.
The panoramas from front and rear terrace are of fine villas surrounded by olive groves, Roman pines and tall cypresses. There has been little change in this tranquil scenery since the renaissance. Given this bucolic scene, it is difficult to believe that Ponte alla Badia is only 10 minutes from the centre of Florence by bus.
The apartment is located on the second floor of the building and is tastefully furnished and fully equipped.
