We stayed at Fiesole for 3 nights on 19 September 2017 as an alternative to the bustle of Florence and we are so pleased we did. Our apartment (Noce) was enormous and clean for our family of four. Daniela has renovated the farmhouse with quality interiors.
Although it wasn't so warm when we were in Fiesole, our children did still have a few swims (in very cold water) and the pool and gardens were clean, tidy and very well looked after. We would love to return when the weather is warmer to make greater use of the outdoor area. The view is outstanding.
Daniela was very helpful and not intrusive at all. She realised one of my daughters was afraid of dogs and we never saw her dogs while we were there. However, my kids were very enamoured by the cats and have since mentioned they miss them (Coco in particular).
A car is necessary as it is about a 5 minute drive to Fiesole town, which is lovely for a stroll, dinner, drink and gelato.
Also suggest checking the weather forecast as the heating restrictions imposed by law may mean you need to rely on the fireplace (we did light it one night) as the central heating could not be used (until around November, I believe).
Hope to return soon (in the Summer) as it is a little slice of heaven.
