The Tuscany region
Tuscany is the pearl of Italy, full of tradition and history sites.
The most beautiful cities to visit are: Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca e Pisa. You can visit Tuscany in each season....
In Tuscany, at north of Florence, we find Mugello area: it is situated among the rolling hills and the tall cypress trees. Since the Middle Ages there has been a tradition of hospitality and gastronomy.
Lovers of healthy, simple and tasty food are invited to come to this part of Tuscany – the Mugello to be exact – to discover not only the magnificent historical and architectonic landmarks in a setting of great natural beauty, but also traditional dishes and a variety of local produce that have maintained their authenticity to this day.
Mugello area offers history, culture and quality services in an enchantingly natural setting. Here you find the towns of Vicchio, San Piero a Sieve, Barberino, Scarperia and Borgo San Lorenzo.
In the above town every day there is a local market in one of the towns, and for shopping lovers.
The climate is several degrees cooler than Florence, and even in the height of summer one wears a wrap or lightweight jacket in the evening.
The Medici family, whose origins lie in Mugello, have left numerous extraordinary tracs of their power. People can discover castles, villas, convents immersed in a beautiful and austere environment where the unspoiled nature and the ancient transformations of the countryside performed by man live in perfect armony.
Mugello offers hikers an infinite number of routes to follow: excursions on foot, by bike and excursions on horseback (excellent stable is just a 4 kilometer away from us).
We are about at 20 minutes drive from Scarperia village and the International Racing Circuit of Mugello and Poggio ai Medici golf course is one of Europe's best.
The Lake Bilancino is just a 30 minutes from Vicchio and offers numerous water sports such as canoeing, sailing and windsurfing. In addition, paths for hikers and cyclists are being completed near the banks of the lake, while two beaches have already created for bathers; these offer umbrellas, beach chairs and bar service.
For people who like shopping there is "Barberino Designer Outlet", that is a unique shopping experience; just a half an hour from Vicchio, it offers more than 100 stores of fashion name selling clothing, shoes, accessories and many more.
