Halfway up a slope on a pretty hill there is a recently restored farmhouse and a delightful outbuilding from which 6 characteristic holiday apartments have been created. It is situated in a relaxing and tranquil position with a beautiful view over the valley and the Tuscan hills. The owners, a very kind and welcoming couple that live in a farmhouse about 900 m away (in the grounds of VISTABELLA), won t miss the opportunity to offer you on your arrival a glass of vinsanto of excellent quality. Only 500 m away is the small town of Acone (supermarket, grocers-pizzeria and bar in the summer), 7 km away is Rufina (3,5 km of which are interior roads) with shops of all types. In the town of Rufina you will find a small train station where it is possible to comfortably travel to the center of Florence (in circa 30 mins.) avoiding the city traffic. The apartments are about 30 km north east from Florence, 20 km from the zone of Mugello, noted for the characteristic greenery and for the numerous enchanting villages like Scarperia (famous for the production of valuable knives), Borgo S. Lorenze, Vicchio, etc.. Shared with the guests of VISTABELLA, is a very lovely and original oval shaped swimming pool (28x14) surrounded by a lovely furnished solarium. Every apartment has its own external furnished area. The owner will organize a party celebrating the threshing of wheat, Festa della battitura del grano , in the last week of July, using age-old machinery and tractors. The owner has a horse riding school with 16 horses and instructors and on request will organise a 2-day horse-riding trekking with booking in nearby farmholiday homes. The owner can also organise tours of cellars with tastings in the Chianti Rufina as well as horse-riding excursions and horse-riding lessons in the property (approx. 120 ha) and cooking lessons. Possibility to organise lunches and dinners (also on the day of arrival) with the typical products from the farm in the 13th century cellar. Parking. Comfortable furniture. Central heating. Baby-bed available. (100 m2) Upper Gr. Fl. (accessed from a private equipped lawn): kitchen/dining room, 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom with shower. 1st Fl. (accessed by an antique, original staircase): living room, 1 double bedroom with a lovely original terracotta floor.
