Arrived to the owner asking us if we spoke English or French as he spoke English and wife spoke French. We said English. He then disappeared. Luckily my fellow travellers had basic French. She said she would explain what to do in town tomorrow at breakfast. No one but the cook was at breakfast. The rooms were dark and damp... More

Giovanni & his wife had been great hosts to us. His beautiful farmhouse is located at a picturesque spot at the town of Fiesole, which is only 20min bus ride away from Florence. The room is clean and the barn has a great view of the rolling hills. Every morning, the hosts spoil us with delicious breakfast and his homemade... More

It had been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember to stay on a farm in the Tuscan countryside. So, there was a lot for Poggio al Sole to live up to in my expectations! And I'm so pleased to say that it absolutely lived up to - and even exceeded - my expectations. Giovanni was... More

Our experience with Giovanni & Antonietta at Poggio al Sole lived up to our expectations! Giovanni made it clear when we checked in, that we were on his farm. He really has a passion for his flowers and loves what he does. ... We received several helpful maps and instruction when we arrived which proved useful. We left our rental... More

If you're looking for a magnificent view of the Tuscany countryside, a comfortable bed and a scrumptious breakfast, then Poggio al Sole is for you! Giovanni and Antonietta complete the picture by being fabulous hosts: being there when needed and on call whenever you just want to sit back and enjoy the panorama. We stayed for two weeks and would... More

My wife and I spent eight days at Poggio Al Sole, a few miles east of Fiesole, in late September. The location is perfect for exploring Florence and the Tuscan region. Fiesole has bus service to the heart of Florence every 15 minutes until midnight - the best way to avoid the parking hassles near Florence. To say our hosts... More

If you wanted another home away from home then Poggio al Sole is it: Giovanni is not just the owner of a home stay: he's a member of your family the moment you arrive. His warm smile greets you and immediately you feel the sincerity of his hospitality. Our room was large and overlooked Mugello on one side, so at... More

My husband and I, along with our 14 year old son, stayed at Poggio al Sole this past August for 3 nights. Our stay was so pleasant, restful and enjoyable .. we so wished we could have stayed for several nights more. We followed the directions that we’d be given by Giovanni from Florence, following the road up into Fiesole... More

We stayed with Giovanni in the Summer when going to a wedding. He could not have been more helpful. We arrived during a festival and did not know where we were going, but Giovanni negotiated the festival traffic and, though delayed and substantially inconvenienced, good-humouredly picked us up, chatted to us and delivered us to his lovely home/farm/residence. The rooms... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Poggio al Sole lies in the midst of the magnificent scenario of the Florentine hillsides, and leans over the gentle slopes of the Mugnone valley. It rests on a 450 m hill, 6 kilometers from Fiesole in a neighbourhood called Torre di Buiano, only 8 kilometres from Florence. This viewpoint surrounded by olive groves, cypress trees and fruit trees is named after the sunny position it offers from sunrise to sunset, in summer and winter as well. ... more   less
