About the property

The house is very cosy, just like a home. Private garden, old fireplace.

Secluded Thirteenth Century Tuscan Farmhouse, beautifully restored

Ancient stone farmhouse surrounded by woods on three sides, with magnificent views over the Mugello Valley and the lake of Bilancino.

With a large old fireplace in the kitchen, it has a nice private garden with a beautiful view and a large separate loggia where you can enjoy your meals 'al fresco'.

Ground floor: the kitchen with all the facilities (oven-microwave, dishwasher, fridge, gas fire), two bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with twin beds), a bathroom (shower, sink, toilet, bidet). A small storage room with washing machine.

First floor: a large living-room with Sky TV-Computer Wi-FI and DVD (some nice movies) and CD player, another bathroom (bathtub, sink, toilet, bidet), and a small studio with sofa-bed for an occasional guest.

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.

The villages of Barberino di Mugello and San Piero a Sieve (where a train service to Florence is available) are about 12 Km (7 miles) from the house. Both villages have banks, post offices, shops and supermarkets.

We are in the Mugello valley, North of Florence, where the Medici family has its origin, and where so many famous artists were born (Giotto, Beato Angelico, Andrea del Castagno etc.).

Florence is 35 Km from the house, about a 40 minutes drive to the center of town; the connection with other art towns in Tuscany (Lucca, Arezzo, Siena) is very convenient because the entrance to the highway is at a distance of15 Km.

The place is 4 Km from the Bilancino lake (the lake is visible from the garden), surrounded by well signposted trails and several sport facilities (windsurf, canoe, sailing, mountain bike, trekking, swimming). A Golf Club where the green can be booked is available 10 Km from the house.

Barberino Designer Outlet, one of the fashion biggest outlets of Europe is 10 Km from the house. The international autodrome of Mugello is 40 minutes drive.

The most known art cities like Florence, Arezzo, Siena, Lucca are iserly reachable with the motorway.

Guided tours in the most pittoresque places of Mugello can be organized (biological farms, cantinas, villas, casteles, small local museums, typical restaurants, archeological sites):

It is an ideal location for artists, writers, poets and all who love peace and tranquility.

The airport of Florence is about 35 minutes drive from our house. The Airport of Bologna is about 1 hour drive, the one of Pisa is one and a half hours drive. The airport of Rome is almost 3 hours drive. We would advise you to book a car through your travel agency in order to pick it up at the airport where you are landing and then drive up here.
