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 .
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.
