Activities and surroundings
Just 7 kilometers from the historic center of Florence is the Poggiopiano Farm. It is situated in the municipality of Fiesole, one hundred and fifty meters above sea level in the green of the Florentine foothills, between olive groves and sun kissed vineyards, facing the Arno Valley.

Its enviable position – at the crossroads of principle Tuscan sites – makes it an ideal base for visiting Florence and other chief tourism and cultural destinations in Tuscany, and this vicinity to the city makes it just as ideal for those that come to Florence for work.

There are no best or worst times to visit Tuscany: each month offers pleasant surprises with new and completely different landscapes and their changing colors. Low season is certainly a favorable time to visit Florence and the other art cities; they are less crowded and one can better savor the eno-gastronomic richness of our region.

Our Farm Holiday Resort offers:
  • Panoramic swimming pool 16 x 7.5 meters, with chairs and lounges
  • Laundry and ironing service
  • Exterior spaces furnished with tables and chairs
  • Barbecue
  • Direct sales of typical Tuscan products
  • Guided Wines and Extra virgin Olive Oil tastings
  • Reservation of Museums and Theatres
  • Information material, maps and tourist guides
  • Free wi fi connection at the Reception – 400 meters from the rooms/apartments.

Our town is Girone, which is 900 meters from the Farmhouse, easily reached on foot by way of a footpath through the vineyards. It is a borough of the municipality of Fiesole, just outside Florence along the Arno River. Girone means ‘round’ and the town is called by that name precisely because it is situated at a point where the Arno River takes a bend. Shops abound and there are Greengrocers’, Dairy Shops, and a Butcher’s with a superb selection of meats, and a fantastic Ice Cream Parlor. There is a Laundry, a Movie Theater, and a Pharmacy specializing in homeopathic products. The end of the line for the number 14 Bus is in the town square, where there is convenient Free Parking, a Newsstand, the Church, and Medical Services. Just 300 meters away, there is the Anchetta Sport Center with a soccer field and tennis courts.
From Girone you can reach the historical center of Florence by bike or foot on a nice cycling lane along the Arno’s river.

Our principle nearby town is Fiesole. The pleasant little town of Etruscan origins is just 9 kilometers from Florence and 8 kilometers from Girone. Set in the hills east of Florence, it has an unequaled panorama that makes it a veritable roof over Florence. Plan a visit to the Archaeological Museum, which is one of the most important in Italy for its invaluable collection of Etruscan and Roman art. A visit to the Roman Amphitheater is worthwhile, too, where music fills the summer air during the Estate Fiesolana Festival. Fiesole can be reached from Girone by bus number 47.

A 7-kilometer ride will take you to the Historical Center of Florence… no instructions required!

Thirty kilometers away is the Mugello, with its Racetrack – where some of the most important motorcycle and auto racing competitions are held – and the Bilancino Lake where you can swim, sail, canoe, windsurf, and fish. There is archery and skeet shooting, and a sport and leisure flying school.

About 10 kilometers away, you will find the Ugolino Golf Club, an international 18 hole course.

About 30 kilometers away you can shop at the Barberino di Mugello Outlet; or, about 20 kilometers away, at The Mall in Leccio.

There is so much to choose from and with Poggiopiano Farm as your home base, you can arrange day trips to discover the most hidden of beauty that Tuscany has to offer. Traveling by car or motorcycle on pleasant roads immersed in the Tuscan landscape you will find:
  • The sea. The sandy beaches of Versilia or the rocky cliffs of the Livorno coast and continuing on toward the area of the Maremma.
  • The mountains. The Casentino National Park can be reached from Poggiopiano through vineyards, arriving to an impressive forest of tall trees at an elevation of about 1,000 meters above sea level.
  • The lake. In the area of the Mugello is the delightful area of Bilancino Lake with its lovely lakeside resort.
  • The hot springs. Petriolo, Saturnia, Rapolano, and Bagno Vignoni are unspoiled well-equipped admission free resorts.
  • The medieval towns. Certaldo, Barga and Monteriggioni, Greve, Montefioralle, Radda, Castellina, Volterra, Pienza and much, much more.
  • The places of worship. The Abbey of Vallombrosa, La Verna, Camaldoli, San Galgano, Sant’Antimo and Monte Oliveto Maggiore.
