A historical villa with beautiful views

Villa Vicchio is a large historic villa, originally owned by the church until 1350, and subsequently sold to a noble Florentine family. It is located in a splendid panoramic position, immersed in the peace and tranquillity of the green Mugello valley, on the southern slopes of the Apennines, 350 meters above sea level. The estate consists of 230 hectares of farmland, mostly devoted to the cultivation of wheat and cereals, alternating with chestnut woods and fields.

The villa has been recently renovated, but still presents some of its original elements, such as beamed ceilings in some rooms and warm Tuscan terracotta-tiled floors. The rooms are furnished with period furniture and decorated with paintings and prints. The balconies and the windows of the villa offer beautiful views of the valley below.

Guests have exclusive use of the pleasant outdoor areas and the large swimming pool. Behind the villa and the swimming pool, partly separated by a laurel hedge, is a farmhouse divided into three apartments. The caretaker lives in one of the apartments which has a separate entrance. The other two are mostly rented for long term and have separate entrances. Privacy is guaranteed. A chapel and a groove of century-old trees are in the park. A portico is furnished with table and chairs for al fresco dining. Please note that the pool is located 200 metres from the villa.

Florence (45 km) can be easily reached by car or using the convenient and frequent train service from Vicchio. Its location allows easy day trips to many other popular destinations in Tuscany such as Arezzo (80 km), S. Gimignano (100 km), Siena, Pisa and Lucca (120 km). Rome is only 3 hours away by motorway. Most destinations can also be reached by train from the railway station of Vicchio through Florence. Golf courses, tennis courts and a riding school are in the vicinity. Lago di Bilancino (45 km) offers water sports such as sailing and windsurfing, and it has some beaches that are suitable for bathing.
