Escape to our recently restored 17th Century home, situated among acres of orchards and grazing fields overlooking Borgo San Lorenzo in the Mugello Valley, 40 minutes from Florence. The entire home and gardens are for your private use.
Our home, or La Prunetina, is a haven of peace in the splendid Tuscan countryside and is an optimal point of departure to visit cities like Florence, Siena, Pisa or Bologna. The Mugello Valley itself is known for its art, wine and oil production, its beef and dairy products. There are many museums, castles, markets, vineyards and exquisite dining options to entertain the art and food lover. Directly outside our gate there are wonderful trails to explore on foot, horseback or mountain bike. They are some of the best in the region!
La Prunetina was lovingly restored in 2010 and maintains its original farmhouse charm while having completely modern amenities and technology inside. This home was originally built in the 17C and consists of 4 spacious bedrooms, a generous American sized and equipped kitchen, living room, utility room and 2 bathrooms. Our spacious yard affords open views to the Apennini ridges beyond and the sound of the nearby stream. Two patios and hammocks welcome you to enjoy your morning café, meals and free time outdoors. Our barbeque and 17C pizza oven will tempt those of you who are adventurous and like to cook by fire.
Keeping the building green has been very important to us and we are proud to state that many measures have been taken to make this happen: solar heating, compost bins, water-based paints, and roofing and stucco that both cool and heat the home naturally and most efficiently. A 15x120 foot vegetable patch and 30-tree orchard allows us to grow and consume some our own produce throughout the year.
We also offer services like a private chef and wine sommillier who does private wine paring evening with a 4-6 course meal for our guests at our home and on our "sunset patio" -he's my cousin and owns a bar/wine tasting room down in Vicchio. He asks €45 per person and it is fabulous and often the highlight of our guests visits!
We hope you will treat your home as if it is yours. There is additional information in our Guest Book that will tell you how best to manage the windows, doors, washer, kitchen equipment as well as our suggestions of where to eat or find the best gelato.
