The property was the subject of a careful and complex restoration carried out closely to the original plant and is placed on top of a rocky cliff overlooking the valley below, surrounded by a series of stone terraces, which together with the architectural design of the apartment re-propose the idea of a Medieval Castle (as was also at that time). The site is surrounded by a private park and fenced by oaks and cypresses that blends with applicants to green spaces. Here are two amazing swimming pools dug into the rock in front of the main entrance of the Castle ( south side ).Both pools are accessible and used free of charge during most of the year.

Location ( Mugello Valley – Tuscany – Fiorentine hills ):

Il Castelluccio is situated in a strategic geographical position, because it is only 2 km from the motorway A1 15 minutes from Florence. Within one hour maximum you can visit Siena, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Lucca, Pisa, and other famous Tuscan towns.

We are at the start of 'Mugello Valley' where born the ' Sieve ' river that runs to Florence to meet the 'Arno' River ( Mugello e Val di Sieve , Nord from Chianti). The Tuscany region is renowned for producing wine and oil. This is Mugello Valley, with the corn-fields, the yellow sunflowers, the high cypresses, the foggy mornings, the singing birds, the scent of the weather, the ancient colours, and with the unreal landscapes.

There is a place where you do not need words to be understood, comparisons to feel you are just fine, strong sensations to thrill with excitement. That place is the Tuscan countryside, and you are its guest. You will discover, on a farm, a vacation you have never tried before, one that will put you at ease at once: the vacation is Farmtourism and it transports you to a world you feel yours at last.

Nowhere else is nature like this! You can take a walk to that ancient village and discover its art, go for a ride on horseback, stop a moment with astonishment in a solitary parish church, enjoy a meal full of gaiety and good things. You can do all of these things or do nothing at all and just relax. This is Farmtourism in Tuscany: wherever you are, you fell at home. All this is farmtourism in Tuscany : wherever you are, you feel at home.

There is more than one Tuscany. You already know a Tuscany famous for its cities of art, its history, its famous men and their works. But, do you know its landscape and the honest hospitality of the Tuscan people in for a holiday? The Tuscan countryside is a very special natural environment where the age-long, human presence has shaped the outlines of the hills.

Solitary farm houses, medieval villages, rows of vines, olive trees, cypresses: this is Tuscan country. And thanks to Farmtourism you can enjoy it on a different kind of holiday. You can walk down dusty white farm paths, ride a mountain bike alongside vineyards and olive orchards or explore marked trails on horseback and discover the many facets of this Region while trying out its local products: the famous D.O.C. wines, the olive-oil, the meats, the cheeses....

With Farmtourism in Tuscany, you can take cooking lessons, pick up the basics of ceramics in an old kiln, visit the cellars along 'The wine route of Tuscany', discover Tuscan handicrafts, listen to a concert in an ancient parish church.....

With Farmtourism in Tuscany you will experience the emotions that come from a countryside and landscape unique in the world.

“ We hope you will come here and we sure you will come again! “

About Salvatore Emanuele

We are a Florentine young couple ( Veronica & Emanuele - 35 years old ) and we had a dream:

An amazing farmhouse In Tuscany, at the thresholds of an ancient Medieval little Castle of authentic and rare beauty.

Now our dream is reality for us and for all our guests !

Salvatore Emanuele purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Why Salvatore Emanuele chose Campo di Marte

There is a place where you don't need words to be understood, comparisons to feel you're just fine, strong sensations to thrill with excitement. That place is the Tuscan countryside, and you are its guest. You will discover, on a farm, a vacation you have never tried before, one that will put you at ease at once: the vacation is Farmtourism and it transports you to a world you feel yours at last. Nowhere else is nature like this! You can take a walk to that ancient village and discover its art, go for a ride on horseback, stop a moment with astonishment in a solitary parish church, enjoy a meal full of gaiety and good things. You can do all of these things or do nothing at all and just relax. This is Farmtourism in Tuscany: wherever you are, you fell at home.

All this is farmtourism in Tuscany : wherever you are, you feel at home.

What makes this farmhouse unique

There is more than one Tuscany. You already know a Tuscany famous for its cities of art, its history, its famous men and their works. But, do you know its landscape and the honest hospitality of the Tuscan people in for a holiday ?

The Tuscan countryside is a very special natural environment where the age-long, human presence has shaped the outlines of the hills.

Solitary farm houses, medieval villages, rows of vines, olive trees, cypresses: this is Tuscan country. And thanks to Farmtourism you can enjoy it on a different kind of holiday. You can walk down dusty white farm paths, ride a mountain bike alongside vinesyards and olive orchards or explore marked trails on horseback and discover the many facets of this Region while trying out its local products: the famous D.O.C. wines, the olive-oil, the meats, the cheeses....

With Farmtourism in Tuscany, you can take cooking lessons, pick up the basics of ceramics in an old kiln, visit the cellars along 'The wine route of Tuscany', discover Tuscan handicrafts, listen to a concert in an ancient parish church.....

With Farmtourism in Tuscany you will experience the emotions that come from a countryside and landscape unique in the world.

i just got back online to get this information for some friends and realized nobody from our group ever did a review! We had a group of 7 last April 2010 that stayed at this remarkable castle bed & breakfast! We had to call for directions but the drive up the mountain was worth it! And the hospitality was the best! The owners let us go down to the kitchen galley and get a feel for the chefs' hard job. And we loved our modern shower--it had the rainfall shower head and I wanted to take it home with me. The food, company and precision in every detail was amazing! We had the homecooked meal our last night to savor the experience and was pleasantly pleased. Not a big deal after now realizing Europes' hot tubs aren't really hot--but that was the only amentity we didn't get to use. I would take walks in the morning down the lane and come across the dogs herding the sheep to the pasture and the view was magnificent! So THANKS for giving us the ultimate Florence experience!

Exciting Stay at IL Castelluccio

  • 5 of 5
Our first impression, as we drove up a winding gravel road towards the "castle" was excitement and a sense of adventure. When we reach the top and saw Il Casteluccio the view was way beyond our expectations. The photos we had seen on the Internet, prior to our arrival, do not do the location and physical appearance justice. It was idyllic! Even a flock of sheep in a nearby meadow added to the storybook picture we experienced.

The castle is positioned in such a way, atop the side of a mountain, that the panoramic view of the Tuscan countryside is breaktaking. Emanuele and Veronica, the young owners, are to be congratulated on the painstaking care they took to restore the castle over a five year period. It is obvious they poured their heart and soul into focusing on every detail that would enhance the joy of their guests staying there. They are a hands-on couple that work vey hard to ensure they guests are comfortable. During our stay we observed that Emanuele and Veronica are in perfect harmony in their working relationship and are perfectionists when it comes to amenities of the rooms, fine selection of wine, quality of the food and presentation of each special dish they prepared for the meals. During our four-day stay we ate most of our meals there, with a choice of indoor dining or outside on the terrace with a view of the beautiful pool and the countryside. To dine elsewhere, during the time we stayed there would have been a step down. If you like adventure, unique locations, outstanding room amenties, exquisite dining, outstanding service, and experience the pride exhibited by the owners, Emanuele and Veronica, you will thoroughly enjoy staying at Il Casteluccio. You will meet some very interesting people from all over the world. Once you stay there, we believe, like us, you will want to return on your future trip(s) to the Tuscany region. We highly recommend you book reservations at II Casteluccio as early as possible.

Warmest regards to Emanuele and Veronica, a most delightful couple!

Car: recommended

This charming farmhouse is located in a strategic position just 20 minutes from Florence city and only 5 minutes from the main A1 (main link between northern and southern Italy).

The other Tuscan cities (Siena, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Chianti Area ...) and the coast of Tuscany (Livorno, Versilia, 5 Terre ...) are all easily accessible in just 1 hour.

A heaven of peace, nature and relief: outside of the boxed off and no parking area lies innumerable sensations of the countryside for which it is possible to reach close to the enchanting mountain fountain, hills above the village, forests of Oaks and Chestnut trees with the possibility of seeing rare wildlife and wild flower species (roe deers, buckskins, wild boars, foxes, hawks, herons and flamingos!)

La valle del Mugello then offers the chance to access museums that are curious and interesting

Just 2 Km away from Castelluccio there are the clean shores of Lake of Tuscany (the biggest artificial lake in 'Europe ).The lake offers various beaches equipped with bathing, boats, canoes and kayak for excursions (windsurf, sailing boats).

Finally Florence is a splendid city and only 20 minutes away!!!!!
