Simply-restructured, welcoming and full of charm, "Casa Palmira" is known for its bedrooms (six with private bathrooms) furnished in an ancient style with old restored furniture and fresh wallpaper. On the ground floor, there is a large living room available to the guests with kitchen, fireplace and oven, for relaxing, reading, playing cards or even.... sewing.
Casa Palmira, located on a green ridge, is just 8 kilometres from the ancient Etruscan-Roman centre of Fiesole and 16 kilometres from Florence.
Casa Palmira is a large cleverly-restructured barn which is part of a rural building, a "tower house" which goes back to the year 1000, for guarding an old road leading from Signoria Fiorentina to Mugello and the Apennine.
Asssunta and Stefano take care of the guests, with warmth and spontaneity, so that they feel like old-time travellers telling their stories, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere enriched by Assunta's fine cooking.
The garden has a pergola, a large lawn and orchards with all the season's varieties of vegetables, which Assunta uses for her recipes.
The green of Casa Palmira lets the guests really live the Tuscan countryside.
