PoggioalsolePoggio al Sole lies in the midst of the magnificent scenario of the Florentine hillsides, and leans over the gentle slopes of the Mugnone valley. It rests on a 450 m hill, 6 kilometers from Fiesole in a neighbourhood called Torre di Buiano, only 8 kilometres from Florence. This viewpoint surrounded by olive groves, cypress trees and fruit trees is named after the sunny position it offers from sunrise to sunset, in summer and winter as well.

We left the original country features of the two buildings that constitute the farm; luckily both the farmhouse and the barn were kept unchanged until nowadays.

productsUntil 2003, Poggio al Sole will be under the process of becoming an organic farm. Its main produces are extra-virgin olive oil and saffron. With the fruit produced in the farm (cherries, apricots, figs, pears, plums, walnuts and sorb apples) jams and natural liquors are prepared and offered to the guests that have dinner with us. We are planting other fruit and olive trees to increase the production.
