    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 spacious villa has been 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.

    A portico is furnished with table and chairs for al fresco dining. A chapel and a groove of century-old trees are in the park.

    Guests have exclusive use of the pleasant outdoor areas and the large swimming pool. The poolside is furnished with sun loungers and sunshades. The pool is located 200 metres from the villa. 

    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.


    Supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, banks, chemists and the post office are in Vicchio, about 4 km from the villa. In Vicchio there are also a bus station and a railway station with busses and trains for Florence.

    Florence (45 km) can be easily reached by car or using the convenient and frequent train service from Vicchio. The 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.

    Wir waren hier für eine Woche und hatten eine tolle Zeit! Wir waren 11 Personen und hatten prima Platz, da es 6 Schlafzimmer und 5 Badezimmer gibt. Wir waren begeistert von Pool und Garten. Die Bilder sind schön, aber vor Ort ist alles noch schöner. Die Aussicht ist herrlich! Sie brauchen ein Auto, wenn Sie hier Urlaub machen wollen. Wir waren einfach begeistert und hoffen wir können bald wiederkommen!

    Liebe Vermieter,
    wir hatten zu zwei Familien mit insgesamt 5 Kindern eine traumhafte Zeit in diesem Haus. Sehr gut hat uns der Pool, der Garten, das sehr angenehme Klima, die Ruhe und das Flair des Hauses gefallen. Die Betreuung durch die Vermieter war unkompliziert und reibungslos. Der Ausblick war auch besonders schön. Die Fledermäuse, die Siebenschläfer, die Wildschweine und die Geccos, die uns hin und wieder besuchten, waren der Hit für die Kinder. Traumhaft war auch das Mugellotal, wo es nicht soviel Tourismus gibt wie im Chianti Gebiet. Toll ist auch die kurze Zugverbindung nach Florenz und unseren Besuch in Bologna habe ich auch in guter Erinnerung. Gerne denken wir an unseren Urlaub in Ihrem Haus zurück.

    The Mugello area in north-estern Tuscany is also known as "the Switzerland of Tuscany", because of the hilly wooded quality of the countryside, so different from that of Chianti or Maremma. There are endless possibilities for trekking, or just walking around; the roads going north to Firenzuola, Marradi or S. Godenzo will shortly take you to the slopes of the Appennini, the mountain range that separates Tuscany from Romagna.

    The village of Vicchio (4 km), founded in the 14th century, is the birthplace of painters Giotto and Fra Angelico. In the Museo Comunale there are many interesting pieces dating from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Several restaurants in and around Vicchio offer tasty Tuscan cooking at reasonable prices. Nearby there are places where you can take riding lessons or go out for a ride on horseback. It is possible to buy fresh bread and other basic foods in Vicchio. There are supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, banks, chemists and a post office. In Vicchio there are also a bus station and a railway station with busses and trains for Florence.

    In Borgo S. Lorenzo (15 km) there is a wide selection of shops. The old centre still retains its Medieval character; the main church, although restored, dates back to the 12th century. The village of Scarperia (15 km) has been famous for centuries for its cutlery shops, where knives and all sorts of blades are still made by hand. Today it is known for two nearby modern attractions; an excellent golf course and a car racing ground (Circuito del Mugello) where F1 trials are held.

    Near S. Piero (15 km) you can see the fortress built by the Medici in the 16th century, and the castles of Cafaggiolo and Trebbio where Florence's leading family came from.

    The picturesque Designer Outlet near Barberino (30 km) with its 100 shops is well worth a visit.

    Keep an eye out for the mercato (itinerant market) which is to be found on fixed week days all year round in the neighbouring villages: Vicchio, Borgo S. Lorenzo, Dicomano.

    The lake Lago di Bilancino (45 km) offers water sports such as sailing and windsurfing. Tennis courts 4 km, riding school 7 km, golf course 15 km.

    During the summer months many of the little towns and villages in Tuscany hold their fiera (fair) or sagra (feast). People gather to look at stands, eat in the open-air restaurants or dance to the sound of old time orchestras. One of the most important summer events of this kind is the ancient Fiera Calda in Vicchio, which takes place in the last week of August or the first of September. Initially a cattle and horse market, it is now a combination of commercial fair, bric-à-brac and art exhibition, horse show and other events.

    Florence: According to statistics produced by UNESCO, 60% of the world's most important works of art are located in Italy and approximately half of these are in Florence! The city lies on the Arno River and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture. A centre of medieval European trade and finance, the city is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages. It was long under the de facto rule of the Medici family. From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. The historic centre of Florence continues to attract millions of tourists each year and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. Strolling through the centre of Florence is a pleasure, the characterful narrow streets which are mostly closed to traffic are full of surprises and temptations.
    Florence, the capital city of Tuscany, will make you swoon with its art, architecture, culture and history. Some favorites are Michelangelo's David in the Accademia, the Duomo, Campanile and Bapistry, the museum of the works of the Duomo, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Bargello, San Marco with Fra Angelica's frescos, Santa Croce, and San Miniato, not to mention the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Think of Florence for leather, lace, linens, Florentine paper and paper products, wine, food and monthly rentals off season. Famous festivals are Easter and San Giovanni June 25.
