Luxurious villa (in origin a castle) in Barberino di Mugello, near Florence. Sleeps 20+6, swimming pool, garden, Internet connection. Wonderful view over the valley of Mugello and Lake Bilancino.
The elegant villa is immersed in the chestnut, oak and fir woods that cover the Tuscan Apennines and surround Barberino di Mugello (Florence). In origin, the villa was a castle at the border of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.
With its varied landscape in which wooded mountains alternate with broad valleys and wide meadows, the Mugello region is an ideal holiday destination. Mugello is also rich in history and traditions, as demonstrate its ancient villas and the Medicean castles.
The villa is a severe building, which has been recently renovated with an eye to maintaining its original structure, so as to give guests the feeling of breathing the magic atmosphere of bygone times. The tower of the castle commands the valley of Mugello and Lake Bilancino.
Around the estate stretch many CAI-marked trekking trails (CAI is the Italian Alpine Club) for pleasant excursions in the woods. A few kilometres from the villa are two famous Medicean residences: the castle of Trebbio and the villa of Cafaggiolo. The villa is located in proximity to the motorway and is therefore an excellent departure point for one-day trips to Florence, Siena, Lucca, Arezzo and Pisa. Near the villa is also an outlet village that sells high fashion items at keen prices.
