The Tuscany region

Castelfiorentino is really in the heart of Tuscany in an area rich of history near the medieval paths of the Via Francigena and close to the villages where Leonardo and Boccaccio were born.

The region is famous for its landscapes with soft rolling hills with cypress and olive trees.

Spring and autumn are the best period to visit with mild temperatures. In July and August it can be pretty hot but our location is on the top of a hill and can benefit of a pleasant breeze .

Castelfiorentino

Florence is considered to be among the history richest cities in the world: many churches and museums are worth a visit. The Uffizzi art gallery contains major works by Michelangelo, Botticelli and Raffaello .

In Castelfiorentino you can find the famous frescos of Benozzo Gozzoli (1420- 1497) and all kind of shops and supermarkets for your convenience.

At the farm we are available to asssit you with reservations in most of the museums.

"Pictures don't tell the whole story"

We spent a very cold week at this apartment. There was no additional heating. It was at the back of the house up a steep flight of stairs and VERY dark. We needed to have the lights on all the time we… More

Your review is totally unfair: we did offer you extra heating that you were not willing to pay. Heating is not inlcluded in our prices.
All the rest is simply not true: next time you are in Tuscany you should book a 5 stars hotel.

"Friendly tuscany"

Very nice place in Tuscany. Very relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Nicely furnished and near to the shopping centre. Very good wine and oil produced by the owner that is at your disposal for every need, even a nice tour in his winery where he explain his grandfather's techniques in making wine. Very nice outdoor places, like the pool and the barbecue area.

Thank you. Since you were here we have improuved the outside equipments and make the wine and vinsanto tasting experiences unforgettable.
