Overview

About the property

"Le Due Volpi" in Vicchio, in the Mugello countryside, is completely surrounded by nature and offers you a corner of paradise.

Originally, the central part of the house, over the main entrance, was a tower, as part of a defense system in place throughout the valley. The house was rebuilted after the ruinous earthquake in 1919.

Each of the three floors has been recently and carefully restored to provide 4 rooms all comfortable and tastefully furnished and they could host up to 11 guests: 1 Triple, 1 Quadruple, 2 Double, each with en-suite bathroom.

When families and groups travel together, we open up the entire B&B and rent it as if it were your own personal villa with a self-catering formula.

Guests can cook and eat togheter around a large table in the “Loggia, a sweet little structure with kitchen, just outside the front door.

The bedrooms and living areas all flow together nicely and they guaranty privacy yet creating an environment where it is easy to share moments together.

The garden and the swimming pool 10x5 mt, to cool off in in summer day, will be for your EXCLUSIVE use.

Cinzia and Aldo live in a separated part of the house, with their own separate entrance, and are available in case of needs.

Just let Cinzia know what interests you most and she will surely give you a load of suggestions on how to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Le Due Volpi is located in Molezzano, in the municipality of Vicchio, the nearest little town, just a 5 minute car ride away, with restaurants and shops.

About Cinzia Rinaldi

Hi! We are Cinzia and Aldo and we live in Vicchio (Mugello, Tuscany), in this lovely country house.

Once reached the "forties" (... "anta" in Italian), we both decided to "have a change" of our lives and to leave home and works in search for a special place to put roots. After a long search, we found this little corner of paradise and we have been felt in love with it at first sight.

We have the same love for nature, art and cycling, especially for the great Italian Champions of the past. Our rooms are a tribute to their achievements and we would like to share our passions with our guests.

Aldo will be pleased to show you our little collection of vintage bicycles and to tell you some interesting and curious stories about "heroic" cycling, all of this accompanied with good Italian food and a bottle of wine!
