A beautiful panorama surrounds the Giratola Farmhouse, set at 500 meters high, all around the landscape. From the infinity pool, the glimpse of the Lake of Bilancino and its magnificent hills, the mountains of the Futa and the Mugello villages in the distance. Exclusive location, silence, privacy and family run activity characterize the farmhouse, making it an ideal place for a relaxing holiday.
Located 25 km from Florence, the property spans over 50 hectares of meadows and forests; aromatic herbs such as lavender, rosemary and sage spot the property together with a pinewood, an orchard and a family garden.
Completely restored maintaining the original features of the typical Tuscan architecture, the 13° century hamlet welcomes its guests in 4 independent apartments, each one with exclusive entrance, private terrace and garden. They are all equipped with every comfort.
The infinity pool for the exclusive use of the guests of the apartments is 11 mts length X 4 mts width; its water is treated with salt. It is the perfect place to spend carefree moments in the silence that characterizes the structure.
Children are welcome: they will find games and open spaces in contact with nature.
The particular location in Mugello, 6 km from the A1 motorway, makes it easy to reach the most beautiful Tuscan art cities, Florence, Siena and San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo and Volterra. You can visit the villages of Mugello, where the Medici family was originated , or race lovers can go to the international Race Circuit near the village of Scarperia, 12 km away. Many are the restaurants with good Tuscan cuisine; for those who love shopping, 6 km away there is the Outlet village with more than 100 stores.
We have a small workshop where I personally dry and ground the aromatic herbs of my garden, together with organic jams made from our fruits. Much appreciated is the fig jam. All the items shown in the workshop are on sale.
Silence and relaxation are precious to us, we have chosen not to have televisions in the apartments. Free wi-fi connection is available in the area around the main building.
You are most welcome to spend your holiday with us, we'll take every care to make your stay unforgettable!
