Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Comfortable family farmhouse, surrounded by a breathtaking view of vineyards and olive groves, but only 5 minutes from the village of Rufina (famous for its wine) and just half an hour from central Florence. Ideal for everyone from keen adventurers interested in seeing the sights of one of Europe's most famous cities to people seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city by enjoying a sweeping panorama view while relaxing with a glass of wine on the outdoor patio.
The house has three spacious bedrooms, all 3 with double beds, comfortably sleeping 6 people, extra bed can be added. There are 2 brand new bathrooms, both with showers, and one with a bath tub. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, American / Italian coffee machine, and also a very large fireplace (great for cooking on in the wintertime).
Local attractions include wine tasting, horse riding, tennis, golf, swimming, fishing, and world-class cuisine.
Think Italy, think Tuscany and Florence. Well we have the farmhouse in the Tuscan hills, but we are just 25 kms from the city of Florence, so you get the best of both worlds.
Step outside the door and you are in the garden with an incredible view over the vineyards and olive trees, and the village of Rufina at the bottom of the hill. There is a covered eating area with table, perfect for dinner outside on a hot summer's night with a refreshing glass of wine. So although the poor Florentines can't sleep for the heat you will find our place pleasantly cool and a pleasure to come home to after a day's sightseeing. There is also a barbeque in the garden. There is an above the ground swimming pool for your use only.
We have a cleaning lady who can come during the week, if you need her.
We have friendly Italian neighbours so we are not isolated but also we have our privacy. The village of Rufina (famous for it's wine) is just 5 minutes by car. Nearby we can arrange ceramic painting , cookery classes and if you really want to chill out we can arrange for a massage at home.
Explore Mugello, still a relatively undiscovered area. The town of Vicchio is the birthplace of two of the greatest renaissance artists, Giotto and Beato Angelico. Head down towards Arezzo and visit the Franciscan Sanctuary of La Verna, where it is said that St. Francis of Assisi received the stigmata on 17th September 1224. Nearby is the Monastery of Camaldoli, founded in 1024, with it's old style pharmacy which is open to the public.

The Tuscany region
Rufina is one of the 8 Chianti wine areas, but is less known than some of the other ones. So there are less tourists but we have some top wine producers in the area.
Explore nearby, the town of Vicchio, birthplace of two of the greatest Renaissance artists, Giotto and Beato Angelico. Bilancino Lake - a man-made lake with sandy beaches, where you can swim and do windsurfing in the hot summer months.
The Barberino Shopping Outlet is full of world famous brands. In the other direction is The Mall, another outlet where you can find Gucci and Prada among others.
Explore Casentino, a beautiful and totally unknown area, apart from one of the most ancient forests in Europe, the town of Poppi with its famous tower is a must to visit.
