This beautiful 19th century country home, recently restored, is part of the “ Fattoria Il Leccio” lived and owned by the Passigli family for four generations. It sits on top of a hill overlooking the Valle del Mugnone, a gorgeous valley that offers panoramic views of gently slopping hills cultivated with well-tended olive groves as well as views of the town of Fiesole and the city of Florence. Giovanni Boccaccio in his 13th Century Decameron, locates some of his stories in this valley.

Personal transportation is advisable. Public transportation, (bus and train) are available at the bottom of the hill in the village of Caldine. It is a 10/15 minute walk through the hilly bucolic countryside. The train, a 12 minute ride from the Fiesole /Caldine station to Santa Maria Novella station in the center of Florence, runs approximately every hour. The buses, a 30 minute ride, also take you into Florence. There is little public transportation after 8pm. Caldine has a supermarket as well as post office and bank. It also has doctor and ambulance service. Please contact us for further details.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1922

About the owner: My wife and our two children live on the property. My wife and I are professionals, she is a business administrator and I’m a Pianist and retired Professor of Piano from the Conservatory of Ferrara. Our son, as well as managing the farm, attends the University of Florence while our daughter is an Arts Manager

Why the Owner Chose Fiesole FI, Italy:
I inherited this property. The vacation rentals help subsidize my son’s Agricultural firm 'Fattoria Il Leccio' that produces top quality olive oil.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Peaceful country stay overlooking one of the most beautiful valleys in Tuscany and enjoying a refreshing swim in the pool after spending a morning or afternoon immersed in the beauty of the Renaissance art that is found in Florence or other nearby towns like Siena, Pisa, Lucca and many more. As well as tasting one of the world’s top quality olive oils. Collapse
