Just 40 minutes from Florence you find our 15th century little buidings, Arco and La Cantina di Bacco, both belonging to a historical farming estate , officially certified for being very ancient by the Chamber of Commerce of Florence . As a matter of fact the "Fattoria" is in the hands of the same family since 1645. The two ancient buildings are nestled on a hilltop above Londa, a quaint little village 10 minutes drive away in the Chianti Rufina region. From their idyllic, secluded position one can enjoy the view of the Sieve valley and the Mugello woodland which well deserves the name of the" green heart of Tuscany". La Cantina , a converted haybarn, and Arco, a converted oil-mill have been restored using typical materials such as terracotta floors and chestnut exposed beams .The original stone floors at Arco have all been carefully preserved. The location is ideal for day trips to the many historical Tuscan cities and to the coast or just for a relaxing holiday in a peaceful unspoiled setting among olive groves . If you choose to come with friends or family our houses are a perfect solution: close but quite independent and private with their own private gardens, shady and sunny spots and beautiful views. The houses are furnished with antique and local furniture which complete their rustic charm.
