The Tuscany region

Polcanto hamlet of Borgo San Lorenzo is located in a strategic position between Florence, city of art with enviable beauties from around the world and the Mugello land rich in scenery filled with nature and atmosphere.

The typical Tuscan cuisine is rich in simple and genuine tastes like bread, extra virgin olive oil, wine and venison


18 Km you will reach the historic centre of Florence.

Borgo San Lorenzo has public tennis courts, and a convenient train and bus service to Florence. Bicycles can be rented in Borgo, as well as horses for country trekking 20 minutes away in Barberino. Besides being a thriving agricultural community, the Mugello area is rich in cultural heritage. Giotto's and Fra Angelico's birthplace, Vicchio, is about 5 kilometres away with a delightful little museum.

Just an hour's drive you can reach the zone of Chianti, Siena, San Gimignano or Pisa and Lucca

"Superb unspoilt Tuscany away from the crowds"

Once we found it (see below), this really was the most fantastic place to stay. It is so quiet and peaceful - no tourist honeypots around here, and yet we could drive to the outskirts of Florence in around 20 minutes (getting to the centre was another matter). Be aware though, that there is no air conditioning, and a car is essential. The accomodation was beautifully decorated, and the garden was delightful. The surrounding area is full of little tracks and footpaths to explore (not all on the map), with chestnut woods and hay fields to walk through rather than olive groves and vineyards. The nearby towns are not at all touristy, although they are worth a visit. The village of Polcanto has a little store, and a bar only.
The tricky bit was finding it, so here are some notes we took. Follow the instructions to Polcanto. Go up into the village, and opposite the shop/bar go steeply uphill out of the village. This road winds and climbs up, and after four kilometres (it feels like more), you begin to come out of the woods. At around this point, you will see a tall, square concrete building, which we thought was an electricity sub station. A few hundred yards after this, there is an unmarked gravel drive off to the right. It drops down left below the first house after about 100metres to I Castagni dei Medici Caterina. There is a sign on the gatepost. It would be wise to check that you have Cristinas' mobile number, and dont' rely on google maps or asking the locals - they certainly didn't work for us!
Anyway, have a great time, but don't tell too many of your friends, we want to keep it quiet!
