The rural bliss of the Mugello, brimming with authenticity and yet delightfully under visited, makes for one of the loveliest valleys in Tuscany. Dominating this rural vignette from its own tor and framed by orderly cypress trees and regimented olive groves is this impressive farmhouse, recently renovated by a Florentine architect.

The architectural integrity of this large house is accented by stone rendering and a charming outdoor kitchen ‘loggia’ complete with its own dining area, pizza oven and barbecue. Further into the well tended garden a poolside dining pergola and the panoramic swimming pool take advantage of the resplendent views across the Mugello. Food lovers will be in their element as the owner can arrange ‘pizza parties’, Tuscan cooking lessons and an in-house cook (on request and payable locally).

Inside the property, you will be struck by the abundance of space throughout the living areas. The bedrooms are liberally spaced throughout the upper floors and each enjoys splendid views across the valley and features comfortable soft furnishings. Villa Giotto is a spacious country house perfect for a large party in an authentically rural location.

The villa takes its name from the Renaissance painter Giotto who, along with the all-dominant banking and papal Medici family, hailed from these hills. You can follow in their footsteps by undertaking the short journey to Florence just 35km to the south; the city’s unique atmosphere and myriad art treasures await and surely warrant more than one visit during your stay. Likewise, the Arcadian atmosphere of Fiesole is even closer for an evening meal and there are plenty of restaurants in nearby Vicchio (4km) for a lazy supper at just a few minutes’ drive away. Lucca (110km) and Pisa (135km) make for an excellent day out, and just over the Appenines to the north lies the remarkable city of Bologna (90km) which can be reached in an hour for sightseeing and exploration of its culinary delights.
 

The owners respectfully request that guests do not smoke inside the house.

The caretakers live in a small building in the grounds of the property. They do not use any of the facilities and your privacy is respected at all times. Terraced grounds mean that young children would need supervision at this house.

Please note: the price shown does not include a tourist tax of €6 per person (payable locally). Children under 14 are exempt.
