Ancient stone farmhouse situated in a panoramic position amidst the green hills of the Mugello, just 40 km from Florence. The apartment, which is completely independent, dates back to 1629 and was a farmhouse with stables on the ground floor up until the late 1900s, when the owners had the structure renovated maintaining, where possible, the original terracotta and Firenzuola sandstone floors, exposed ceiling beams and original stone sink. The bedrooms have been decorated in keeping with the old farmhouse style typical of the late 1800s - early 1900s. The location of this farmhouse makes it the ideal place to spend a holiday, to relax and to enjoy the Tuscan cuisine accompanied by its famous wines or to go hiking or mountain biking.
