Fattoria Settemerli is a fortified Tuscan farmhouse dating back to the 14th century. Surrounded by vineyards, it is set on the hills near Certosa Monastery, 7 km from Florence's historical centre.
All air conditioned, rooms at the Settemerli have a rustic design, antique furniture and works of art on the walls. Each has a private bathroom with shower, and daily cleaning is provided.
The farm produces organic extra-virgin olive oil, and you can enjoy peaceful walks among olive groves and horses. Horse-riding activities can also be organised on site.
There are plenty of art and history books around, plus free Wi-Fi in public areas.
Served daily in the former olive oil storage room, the breakfast buffet offers traditional Tuscan bread, croissants and homemade jams, as well as cakes and fresh fruit. Guests can choose to have breakfast in the garden, where a free tea is also offered in the afternoon.
You can catch a bus from the property. This will take you to Florence Santa Maria Novella Station in around 15 minutes. Free parking is provided on site.
