Podere Renuccioli is a lovely property a short distance from Fiesole and only 10km from North of Florence, making it the perfect location to enjoy the city as well as the pretty Tuscan countryside. The property is on a large estate which includes the surrounding olive grove and some of the forest, making it a wonderfully peaceful location.
In the well maintained garden there is a sparkling pool which looks out to the pretty views. Around the pool is a wooden deck with sunbeds and a covered terrace with comfortable sofas, and a dining table to enjoy pool side meals al fresco.
It is composed of a large villa and the cottage. The large villa is used privately by the English owners for family holidays, the housekeeper has a small apartment at the villa. 
The cottage is a Tuscan barn converted into a luxury villa for 2 people. It has many of the traditional Tuscan aspects such as terracotta tiles crisscrossing the windows which provide plenty of light into the rooms while keeping the villa cool. Outside is a shady terrace looking towards the pool and views. It is furnished with a small stone table and iron chairs.
The entrance to the villa is to the back and a short walk from the terrace. It opens into a bright, spacious, open plan living area. To one side is a well equipped kitchen which includes a small fridge with internal freezer compartment, oven and gas hobs. Next to this windows look out towards the owner's villa.
To the far end of the room is the large wooden dining table which comfortably seats 6 people. The windows behind the table look onto the garden and pool. The room is completed by a large, comfortable double sofa. Throughout the villa there are wooden floors and the ceiling is done in the traditional Tuscan villa style with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
The bedroom has plenty of space and is furnished tastefully in dark colours that offset the wooden floor and ceiling. There is a large double bed and a relaxing chair. Plenty of wardrobe space is provided by the double door wardrobe. The bathroom is a modern room with a box shower.
There is air conditioning in the bedroom and living room, it charged for by consumption.

Below the cottage is a storeroom for garden and maintenance equipment, the gardener will be using this occasionally.

This is a non-smoking house and estate, no smoking is allowed within the cottage, the house or the gardens.

The pool maybe shared at times with the owners family and occasionally with his guests who will stay in the main house.
The owner does not live in the main house, however visits with guests several times through the year.


Pool Info

The large pool is located about 100metres from the cottage, passing down a sloped gravel path surrounded by terraced gardens which are planted with flowers, rosemary, lavender and some vegetables. To one side is a large olive grove. The entire garden is perfectly maintained and has a wonderful view down the valley and onto the forest covered hills dotted with Tuscan towns and villas that surround the property.
The pool area is wonderful with full sun on the pool itself and the wooden deck with plenty of sunbeds next to it. Steps along one width provide an ideal place to relax in the cool water while enjoying the views. Next to the pool is a covered wooden terrace which is furnished with tables and chairs for dining next to a large barbeque. To the other side is a comfortable lounge area with sofas and a hammock.
The pool is 12x6 metres, 1.2-2.2 metres deep and it is open from mid May to mid September. Pool towels are supplied.

Fabulous warm welcome by Udesh, he even offered to show us (upon arrival) the way to the local supermarket if required!
Beautiful villa with everything you could need and the pool was sublime.
Great location, we visited Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano as well as Florence not to mention the gorgeous town of Fiesole.
We were lucky and had the place to ourselves and although Udesh and his family were living in the main house our privacy was respected at all times. Thank you Udesh.
It wasn't a problem for us but if you are afraid of wasps the villa pool is not the place for you.

Perfect villa with a lovely location and stunning views

The villa was equipped with all the comforts of home
We were sad to leave

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und lässt kaum Wünsche offen. In dem großen und gut ausgestatteten Bett kann man wunderbar schlafen. Der Pool, die Terrasse und der Garten sind ebenfalls wunderschön, und wir haben alles sehr genossen, ebenso wie die traumhaften Ausblicke in die umliegende Landschaft. - Man kann Florenz in kurzer Zeit bequem per Zug erreichen und ausgiebig erkunden. - Der Verwalter war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Die Zufahrtsstraße mit dem Schotterbelag ist mit einem SUV sicher gut zu befahren, für Limousinen ist sie jedoch denkbar ungeeignet.
Local attractions Florenz und Fiesole. Wir haben in der Pizzeria San Domenico sehr gut gegessen.

As requested we had the villa to ourselves and spent most of the week around the excellent pool - which was extremely relaxing. (we were luckly that we were in the middle of a hear wave). All of the furniture and equipment was of very good quality and easy to use.
The villa is also 5 mins away from a reasonable supermarket (so there was no need to purchase the stater pack.)

This is a very private villa and is in a quiet area (not sure what it would be like if the main house is occupied.

This villa exceeded our expectation - we had a wonderful week.

Also we would like to thank the caretaker, Diesh, (hope that is the correct spelling) who was very helpfull.


Two small points
- around the perimeter of the pool there was dozens of wasps - this was not a problem to us and we were not bothered by them (the villa is surrounded by fields so you would expect some wildlife)

- The road surface up to the entrance is quiet uneven
Local attractions We ate at La Reggia degli Etruschi, in Fiesole, which was excellent. Our only other day out was to Sienna (we had spent 4 days in Florence before arriving at the villa) - both are spectacular.

Owner Comment: Thanks Tony for your very kind comments. I will pass your kind words on. Re the wasps yes they can be a problem, but as you say in the natural environment and one we are keen to retain, they can be a pest. I have never been stung there! We maintain the road periodically, however these "Strada Bianca" white roads are quite a common feature in Italy and in particular country Villas. Your comments is however noted. Regards, Jeremy

Great location and accommodation - beautiful scenery. Loved the pool and the villa. Shops and station within easy reach. A perfect break.
Local attractions Il Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio and Boboli Gardens were all absolutely stunning (to name but a few).
