Secluded and peaceful

If flying into Florence airport make sure you have a very detailed map if either driving to or taking a cab to the hotel. It's quite off the beaten track. If you don't want to drive either through or on the outskirts of Florence, then take the southern bypass, A1/A11 E37. Once at Pontassieve head for Fiesole. It's about 15 mins from there.
Delightful spot, however we stayed a week there and was not once invited to dine at the hotel, strange? Big downside for me was the intermittent free wifi access. Only accessible on the ground floor and once the signal is dropped you need a new password and log in, very frustrating.
