This huge property, located in a very panoramic position overlooking the hills of Florence and a small lake, consists of 3 parts, the oldest of which was built in the 13th century and was used afterwards by the pilgrims who stopped there to rest. The property is located only 14 km from Florence making it a perfect location, not only for the proximity to the town, but also for exploring the surrounding countryside, and at the same time for relaxing in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

Martin, Although rather delayed, wanted to let you know how much the 11 members of our family enjoyed the "villa in Tuscany"! It really was delightful and something we shall all remember for the rest of our days. Already several friends are beginning to think about doing the same thing! We shall certainly give them your address! We would be very grateful if you could give us the address of Salogi so we can write them also. They were very helpful and arranged for most of our evening meals to be prepared by a marvelous signora. We would like to thank them also. Thank you for your help! Patricia and Ray
