We are a couple, architect and painter, living in an old farm house that we have rescued with great care.
The house which stands on the hilltop overlooking the Mugello Valley is from medieval time and was originally a two family farmhouse. It’s still divided in two units from ground to roof. We live in one part and rent the other unit (sq meters 150), completely independent with its own private entrance, garden and separate loggia.
The home is situated in the Mugello Valley, 40 minutes drive North of Florence, an area where the famous Medici Family, Princes of Florence, has its origin and where many famous artists from the past were born (Giotto, Beato Angelico, Cimabue, Andrea del Castagno).
The house is published in “Country Interiors” and “Icons: Tuscan style”, both edited in 6 languages by Taschen.
Tuscany and Golf: Now, both can be enjoyed at the acclaimed Poggio dei Medici Golf and Country Club , set in the heart of the beautiful Mugello region, and home of the Ladies Italian Open from 1999 to 2003
The Course, designed by Italian architect Alvise Rossi Fioravanti and by professional player Baldovino Dassù , allows for four different playing routes within its 18 holes . As you play this fascinating course, you can also appreciate the typical Tuscan scenery , viewed from a vantage point near Scarperia . You will find yourself on a world-class Golf Course deep in the countryside, only a few kilometres from Florence.
Here, you are in the centre of Tuscany's vast wealth of sightseeing and culture. World-famous attractions such as Vinci (70km), Florence (25km), Siena (100km), Pistoia (60km), Pisa (120km), Lucca (90km), San Gimignano (90km), San Miniato (75km) and Volterra (115Km) are just a few kilometers away.
