Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is one of the wellknown Region in Italy for Art, Culture and great foodTuscany has been appointed Wine Best Destination 2012 by the Trip Advisor Travellers

Fiesole

Strategically located in the Northern hill of Florence, at only 11km from the city, it offers enhanced privacy and typical Tuscan views of the olive trees, vineyards, and valley below.The area is also famous for Chianti Rufina vinejardsWithin the radius of a few kilometers, there are several historic sanctuaries, churches and buildings to explore, as well as a castle, amazing wineries, and of course, great restaurants. The property is also bordered by a communally protected forest, which makes for less neighbors, great hiking, and the opportunity to glimpse rare flora and fauna. It's easy to sink into the peacefulness of the valley here, but should you want to explore more by car, the central location of the property makes it easy reach the surrounding towns of Santa Brigida (4km), Fiesole (8km), and for the fashionistas he designer outlets at Barberino del Mugello and di Incisa Valdarno.

“A wonderful italian family!”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

“Just perfect. That's all!”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2014

We stayed for a week in the height of summer. Set in a beautiful location in the hills above Florence, the villa was a perfect base for a touring holiday. Clean and reasonably spacious, Alba is always on hand in her own adjacent property to help if needed. It's a very quiet, peaceful place. The nearest major supermarket is just down the road in Pontassieve, around 10 - 15 minutes drive and Florence is probably 30 minutes dependant on traffic. Incidentally, although the daytime temperature was around 34C whilst we were there the villa stays very cool and air conditioning isn't missed at all. In summary, we would stay there again in a heartbeat, a lovely holiday, perfect location and a great but unobtrusive host.

“Beautiful country villa, perfect for two couples”

Reviewed 11 May 2014

Alba is a wonderful host who insures that you have a perfect stay. The villa is about 10-15 minutes by car to free parking lot and the bus into Firenze. After the crowds of the city it is wonderful to have the beauty and peace of this home base. We stayed 5 nights, spent some days in the city and some exploring Chianti region. We followed Alba to the very nearby Castello del Trebbio winery and made arrangements for a tour, tasting, and dinner. The villa itself is on two levels with bedroom and bathroom on each. The outdoor space is wonderful and views are spectacular. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

“Tuscan hills at your doorstep!”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2014

La villa Torre alle Colonne is a beautifully restored house overlooking the hills around Fiesole. The annex we rented overlooks the main courtyard but has an independent entrance. The place has all you need to be comfortable and a special shower that caught the imagination of our children!, (light, music, hydromassage etc ;-) Alba, the owner, lives on site and is super helpful and full of advice and tips. From the house you have direct access to many walking trails and it's easy to explore many pictoresque villages nearby; unfortunately the weather was still a bit chilly but i imagine this to be the perfect base for a relaxing holiday walking in the Tuscan countryside in the spring/ summer time. Florence is not far away (30-40min drive) but you will need a car and make sure you avoid the SS67 Aretina! This is often very busy and it might add another 30min to your journey. Better to head north and take the SS302 Faentina. All in all we enjoyed our stay, and enjoyed meeting Alba very much! We will try and go back in the summer to try and make the most of the beautiful location

“Cozy, modern in a Medieval contest. Warm hospitality. Great value for money”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2013

We decided to have some days beetween Florence and Lucca and since we stayed in the city center of Lucca we decided to choose a country place close to Firenze and Fiesole. We dicovered Villa Torre di Colonne and we think it has been the best choice for us. Alba, the owner lives on the other side of the wide courtyard and is a special person. Calm, sweet very welcoming. The house is part of a medieval complex with a Tower. It is well equipped and with space enough for 4 or six people. We were only 2. In march we enjoied the cozy atmosphere of the fireplace having dinner. We think in summer this location should be perfect for escaping the heat!! Great value for the price we payed. Florence is at 15 minutes drive and Fiesole at less then 10 minutes. Following the Alba's indication we also visited the small little churh of Lubaco that we never discovered without her hint. Thank you, grazie Alba, you have a beautiful holiday house. We will be back as soon we can.
