The Tuscany region

The regional capital of Tuscany lies on the plain of the River Arno, hemmed in between the hills that have made it justly famous. While the city centre has a wealth of art works and buildings of great historical and architectural value, covering a time span that ranges from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, the surrounding area is equally interesting. The beautiful countryside is studded with villas, country parish churches, convents and small, atmospheric villages.



Just a few kilometres from Florence, among the rolling hills and the tall cypress trees, standing against the backdrop of the mountain passes and crests, we find the Mugello territory. Still waters, pleasant countryside, hard-working amiable people, wholesome food, the lands of the Medici, and numerous historical estates are within your reach just beyond the gates of Florence. In the Mugello, guests can explore the native towns of the Medici, Giotto and Beato Angelico, all of whom played a part in the Italian Renaissance.

The age-old fascinating "Faentina" railroad provides a fast 35-minute ride to the centre of Florence.

The enviable geographical position makes Mugello an ideal starting point for a visit to Florence.

A short walk away is Vicchio, with shopping facilities, and where you can take the train and get to Florence in less than an hour. The same distance away are sports facilities for tennis and riding. 16 km away, in the area of Scarperia, is the fine “Poggio dei Medici” Golf Course. At a similar distance Lake Bilancino also has attractions for the sporting guest, especially sailing.
