Local attractions include wine tasting, horse riding, tennis, golf, swimming, fishing, and world-class cuisine.
The Home Think Italy, think Tuscany and Florence. Well we have the farmhouse in the Tuscan hills, but we are just 25 kms from the city of Florence, so you get the best of both worlds.
Step outside the door and you are in the garden with an incredible view over the vineyards and olive trees, and the village of Rufina at the bottom of the hill. There is a covered eating area with table, perfect for dinner outside on a hot summer's night with a refreshing glass of wine. So although the poor Florentines can't sleep for the heat you will find our place pleasantly cool and a pleasure to come home to after a day's sightseeing. There is also a barbeque in the garden. There is an above the ground swimming pool for your use only. We have a cleaning lady who can come during the week, if you need her.
We have friendly Italian neighbours so we are not isolated but also we have our privacy. The village of Rufina (famous for it's wine) is just 5 minutes by car. Nearby we can arrange ceramic painting , cookery classes and if you really want to chill out we can arrange for a massage at home.
Explore Mugello, still a relatively undiscovered area. The town of Vicchio is the birthplace of two of the greatest renaissance artists, Giotto and Beato Angelico.
