Podere Nuccioli is a stunning home on a hill-top enjoying beautiful views of Fiesole, nestled in the hills of the Val di Mugnone, overlooking Florence. The old villa was likely one of the last to be restored and the owners have done an incredible job; the quality of the finish and attention to detail is of the highest level - this has to be one of the most comfortable properties available on the market today. The property is surrounded by a very well-kept garden and an olive grove with gated entrances for security. Below the villa on a lawn-terrace is the heated swimming pool, enjoying splendid views of Fiesole and the hills leading down into Florence. There is a large shaded area for relaxing and a dining area with a BBQ, one of the three areas where one can dine outside. There is a second al fresco dining area near the guest house, overlooking the garden and pool and a third one just off the small courtyard. The food-loving owners have added a very sophisticated modern kitchen into the open plan ground floor that even has a professional coffee maker that you would normally find in one of Florence’s chic bars. This comfort extends into the other floors; the bedrooms have fantastic bathrooms, and there is a spa room with a large tub on the lower ground floor. Florence is just minutes away as is the beautiful historic town of Fiesole which boasts it’s very own Roman amphitheatre.

Podere Nuccioli is located in the outskirts of the village of Caldine, few kilometres to Fiesole, which overlooks Florence and is considered one of Italy’s most beautiful towns in its own right.
