The space

Villa Palagio is an ancient building in natural stone nestled on a hilltop, only 5 minutes from Florence. Here you can enjoy peace and privacy. Stunning valley views and gorgeous sunsets. You have a sunny garden with Loggia and a terrace.
You enter directly into the cosy living and bedroom, from here you proceed to the kitchen and the beautiful bathroom.
From the bedroom you look on the large beautiful garden where you can enjoy views of the surrounding green countryside and have alfresco meals.
The building was built in the typical Florentine grey stone and preserves all the authentic feature of its ancient origin. It has central heating , so it's very comfortable also in the Spring and Autumn.
The location is ideal for a relaxing holiday among olive groves. At same time you are in very close touch with Florence, but not only: Fiesole is only 3,5 km far and crossing the river you get immediately into the Chiantishire.
The owners live in the main building, on the upper part of the property, and are always available for their guests. They know the area very well living here a long time. It’s a 7,5 hectare property with organic extra virgin olive oil production. If you want we can arrange a guided tour to our oil-mill in Fiesole.
Easy bus connections directly to the center of Florence are only 1 km away. You can leave your car on the property, have a nice 1 km walk along romantic little streets (see fotos) and take a bus....

I couldn’t have been happier to stumble upon Katja’s place. She is a great host and her space has everything you need. The location is absolutely breathtaking and serene yet only a 5 minute drive into the city. I recommend having a vehicle as her house is on the top of a steep hill and would be difficult to get public transportation. We rented a car and Katja informed us of the easiest place to park near the city. I also would suggest arriving during daylight as it can be confusing to get to your first time. I highly recommend this place and I will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Awesome place. Chilled and not too far to explore Florence. Beautiful views and The hosts got us a visit to the local olive mill which was interesting. The space is comfortable and stylish.

So if you always thought to yourself, you know, I don't have any selfies in an olive orchard, then look no further. Incredible views, a gorgeous porch, and a restful stay away in Tuscany. Katja gave us great recommendations for wineries and an incredible thermal bath spa to check out. We loved every second of our stay and would go back in a heartbeat.

Katya's place is a great home base for a trip to Florence. It is very close to the city center yet when you take a journey up a hidden hill, you find this beautiful Tuscan retreat. I would suggest having a car because it is a long hill, but we found parking close to the city and it made it easy to drive back and forth. No need for a bus. It was clean and had everything we needed. Katya was helpful but not intrusive. I highly recommend it!

Lovely standard of accommodation -comfortable bed, quality fittings, well equipped and very private and romantic and remote. You really do need a car here and the road up to the apartment is pretty steep and narrow. Easy to get to Florence though and a great base from which to explore.

Our stay with Katja was our favorite during our time in Europe! Located in the hills above Florence, our time was spent sitting on the porch and taking in the incredible views! Katja's communication and welcome/hospitality was incredible!
