Why Guido chose Vaglia

'Casa Bella' is an ancient villa that has a story.

In the sixteenth century it was used by the monks of the monastery of 'Montesenario' as home to sleep after a day's walk coming from Florence.

In 1796 it was refurbish and took its present form.

The location offers an oasis to relax in the beautiful countryside of Florence and is only 15 km from the historic center of Florence.

My parents bought it in 1978

The refurbishment of this house was recently completed with special attention, respecting the traditions and spirit of the period in which it was built, using original materials, 'terracotta', stone walls and ceilings with original wooden beams.

What makes this apartment unique

In our country residence you will have a great time enjoying the peace of nature and the terrific view of the hills. The complex is nested in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and surrounded by vineyards, olive and cypress trees. It is only few kilometers far from Florence, so from here you could plan different excursions to this wonderful city full of art and history that is just 20 minutes by car.

For those who choose the holiday as an opportunity to do sports can go horseback riding, playing golf, walking trails, fishing, windsurfing and sailing or take in the nearby Lake of Bilancino.

Beautiful tuscany

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful location. Close to Florence, Borgo San Lorenzo and mugello (great for visiting the GP). Great view of the Tuscan hills from the shared garden. We stayed in the margherita apartment, it was well presented, a spacious size and had a small private outdoor area. We were slightly disappointed that there wasn't a view of the hills from this garden and no outdoor table and chairs in this area. The apartment also had no direct sunlight so felt a little cold and damp at night. This perhaps wouldn't be a problem during main summer months. If visiting again we would opt to pay more and stay in the Girasole apartment which is facing the hills and a sunny private garden area. A pool was in construction during our stay which ruined the view for us but will be a great addition in a lovely location for future visitors. We visited a great outdoor communal pool in Florence instead. Alwin was friendly and helpful. Always on hand if we had any issues and prompt in dealing with these. He spoke good English which was a bonus as we have never visited Italy before and so unfortunately our Italian is poor.
Be prepared to do a lot of driving which can be a little hair raising but great fun. We had bbq's most nights enjoying the view, and also ate at a lovely family friendly restaurant 10mins away in Protalino. There is also a small shop here. We wanted to eat in a small village a few minutes drive, but the sports bar and restaurant here were both closed on the evening we chose. Both of these looked very nice. Due to no paths and having small children we had to drive but for those able to walk up steep hills would probably take about 30 minutes. A trip to Florence is a must and we would love to return in the future. Overall a fantastic trip

Owner's Response: We regret that you didn't ask for a a table and some chairs in the private garden because Alwin could have given them to you without any problem. We storaged everything to avoid that the sun and the rain could damage them.
Regarding to the paths, thank you for the feedback, I can say that there are several paths but as we have just started our activity we didn't prepare a small guide,for the future we have several ideas to enjoy the stay of our customers. Thank you for your sincerity, I hope to see you again in the future. Best regards Guido

ein wunderbarer Urlaub....

  • 5 of 5
Begünstigt vom stabil-warmen Oktoberwetter haben wir eine Traumwoche in diesem außergewöhnlich schönen Domizil verlebt, haben viel gesehen in den umliegenden Städten Florenz, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano und Pisa, haben von den reizenden Gastgebern tolle Tips zu Ausflügen, Verköstigungen, Restaurants, Stränden bekommen und vor allem die tolle Aussicht über die toskanische Landschaft Garten und Terrasse genossen. Und diese Sonnenuntergänge!!!Alles war sehr sauber und gepflegt, Ambiente einfach schön!
Also rundum ein toller Urlaub in einem sehr empfehlenswerten Haus

A perfect place to recharge and relax

  • 5 of 5
"We had a fabulous week - our only disappointment was it couldn't have been longer! I really recommend this wonderful place. A quiet corner just outside Florence where you can breath the real Tuscany's air and see astonishing panorama views of the nature, a perfect place to recharge and relax."

Wonderful Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week together with our three children. We enjoyed to live in tuscany very close to downtown Florence (20 minutes by car) Also we found great pleasure in experiencing the typical italian lifestyle by shopping for food and cooking ourselves like real italians do. The villa has such a peaceful atmosphere, had been newly renovated and is decorated beautifully. It is situated on top of a hill and totally quiet. The owners are lovely and helped us whenever necessary. We think about coming back for a longer period of time with our children because nearby is the International School of Florence, which has a great reputation

From the Florence Country Residence in 20 min by car you can arrive in Florence downtown.

The residence is not far from some beautiful medioeval town such as San Gimignano, Vinci, Volterra, San Miniato and in 2 hours you can arrive to Siena and Pisa where you can see the famous leaning tower.

For those who choose the holiday as an opportunity to do sports can go horseback riding, playing golf, walking trails, fishing, windsurfing and sailing or take in the nearby Lake of Bilancino.

To do shopping of clothing, bags, shoes and accessories, you can not miss the visit of the Designer Outlet Barberino di Mugello (30 min by car), designed as a true Renaissance village where you can find the most sought after brands and designer labels in fashion such as Prada and others.

We are not so far from the “Chianti” area where you can visit famous wineyards and buy some bottles of the best wine of Italy.

From here you can spend a nice day in the sea side, easily you can go to Viareggio or if you love wonderful beaches you can go to Golfo di Baratti or Spiagge Bianche.

We are just 25 min to arrive to the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello - also known as Mugello Circuit - is a motor racing circuit and Italian motorcycle. Here every year takes place the world championship of MotoGP.
