Farmhouse in Tuscany

Book your relax in Tuscany

When history and nature merge in the Tuscan countryside

For those who like listen to the silence and enjoy quiet walks, this farmhouse in Tuscany is the right place.

The farmhouse lies on a hill surrounded by the countryside, with a view on the hills around and the river Arno, the second longest of central Italy.

In this area there are two natural reserves named "Valle dell'Inferno e Bandella" and "Ponte a Buriano e Penna", that host a large variety of birds such as herons, magpies, mallards, moorhens, kingfishers and also migratory birds as ducks, ospreys and lonely marsh harriers.

Easily accessible by a short walk, the "Romito Bridge", dating back to Roman times, when it joined the Cassia Vetus road to Rome and Florence, is thought to be the one painted by Leonardo da Vinci behind the Monna Lisa.

Nearby we still find the remnants of the "Hospital of San Cataldo" founded in 1109 by the Benedictine monks of the Holy Trinity in the Alps, and the oratory of "Santa Maria in Valle", from the seventeenth century, built in an area related to the ancient cult of springwater and still used for weddings and baptisms.
