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.
Poggio al Sole is a small family-run farm and rural B&B, a special place from
which you can reach Florence, Fiesole, and the other artistic towns in
Tuscany. Guests are welcome in a warm and friendly way, and tranquillity
and great care are guaranteed. The typical produces and the Tuscan
cooking cheer our dinner tables every night.On request, wine tours to
farms producing Chianti Rufina and Chianti Colli Fiorentini along the "Wine
Roads" can be organized: they include the visit of the cellars, wine and
typical produce tasting.
THE FARMHOUSE AND THE BARN
We decided to keep the rustic look of the farmhouse and the barn that
have luckily kept their original style until now.
The barn with its stone facade offers three large double rooms named
after Gorse, Iris, and Jasmine, (Ginestra, Iris and Gelsomino), all with
private bathrooms and restored in the original Tuscan style, with wooden
beams, terracotta floors, solid wood for doors, windows and the furniture.
The ancient porch, with is likely to have been the place where tools were
stored, is now the entrance to the rooms and the common hall. The porch
is like a balcony opening on the valley and the fields of olive groves and
On the front of the barn a century-old oak shades the threshing floor, and
other trees offer a cool relaxing area.
The first floor of the farmhouse offers two large rooms, one of which is a
triple room, all with private bathroom, called Sunrise and Sunset, opening
on the valley and on the city of Florence. On the ground floor of the house
the large chimney place decorates the breakfast room.
