The Residenza Il-Poggiolo is located on a small hill, from where one has a wide view over the green hills of the Mugello to the valley of the Sieve with the new lake Il Bilancino. The healthy climate of Mugello has always attracted Florentine families, like the Medici, to erect your summer residences here. The immediate surroundings of the former winery invite you to go hiking and exploring these magnificent villas and hunting lodges as well as the medieval towns and their picturesque festivals. The easy access to the highway allows trips to cultural cities such as Florence, Siena, Pisa, Bologna, etc. The nearby Florence is also easy to reach by suburban train from San Piero a Sieve. The challenging 18-hole Poggio dei Medici Golf Course is 7 km away. Possibilities of water sports are offered by the nearby Bilancino Reservoir. Both the Motodrome Ferrari in Scarperia and the Outlet Center in Barberino have settled in the region.
The 18-hole golf course Poggio dei Medici is also interesting for demanding players. It lies at a distance of about 7 km.
In the former winery Il-Poggiolo, whose origin dates back several hundred years, the main buildings were restored in Tuscan craftsmanship tradition. It created five apartments with every comfort between 48 and 120 square meters. All apartments have separate entrances and, with their own well-kept outdoor spaces, they have the opportunity to have their meals in front of the apartment. There are also several seating areas in the garden for undisturbed enjoyment of the landscape and culinary delights. In addition, a swimming pool was created in the large park-like garden with cypresses, old oaks, chestnuts and olives, away from the buildings. The estate is located on a small hill with a wide view into the green hills of Mugello. Only 1.5 km away is the medieval town of Galliano; There are shops and a pizzeria. A little further south, a reservoir was created in the 90s in the valley of the Sieve, which today invites to sailing and surfing.
From a small tree-lined path, past the outdoor seating area with stunning views of the countryside, you enter the spacious eat-in kitchen. The hand-hewn stone sink is the eye-catcher of the modern Tuscan kitchen. Two comfortable sofas and woodburning stove provide comfort even for cooler evenings. An open stone staircase leads to a large double bedroom with its own toilet and washing facilities. The second double bedroom has direct access to the red marble and white tile bathrooms. The apartment is partly equipped with antiques.
