About the property

"Casa del Marchi" named so after the owners of "Podere IL CERRO" in old days, is nicely framed in a wide, enchanting meadow which is part of the property.

A lit private road and an automated gate provide an easy access to the cottage from the main road. The surrounding area - full of ancient oak and chestnut woods - encircles beautifully the magnificent city of Florence.

The quiet end relaxing location can offer glorius days and fresh nights during Summer and is enriched by an outdoor swimming-pool and an indoor Hammam.

Nous avons passé 2 semaines extraordinaires dans cette location. Tout d'abord, elle est d'une très grande propreté. Tout est nickel et mieux que sur les photos. Le calme est complet et la vue est magnifique. Et enfin, les propriétaires sont des personnes adorables. Plein de bonnes choses nous attendaient à notre arrivée. Florence n'est qu'à 30 minutes, ce qui nous a permis de visiter tranquillement. Nous sommes aussi allés à Pise et Lucca. Donc, pour résumer, un séjour enchanteur et une location que nous avons quittée à regret!!!

Owner's Response: E' stato un vero piacere conoscere questa bellissima famiglia, bravissimi genitori con due splendidi bambini e un simpatico cane. Estremamente ordinati, corretti e molto sensibili, una famiglia che ognuno vorrebbe avere come vicini di casa e soprattutto come amici.

Location formidable, à recommander très vivement

  • 5 of 5

"C''''est avec grand plaisir que nous recommandons cette location pleine de charme. Les propriétaires sont généreux et l''emplacement est tout à fait idyllique. A deux pas de Fiesole et de Florence, c''est un endroit paisible et calme. Nous avons eu la chance certains matins de voir des cerfs traverser le jardin ! Nous y retournerons avec empressement. Un must! Merci à Carlo, à son adorable femme et son fils si gentil pour ce séjour si merveilleux ! Nous vous souhaitons une très belle année 2014 et vous disons à très bientôt !" Diane & Yves"

"We spent 2 wonderfull weeks in August! The house is perfect, the patio surrounds a magnificient view on the "Apenins". It is really quiet and relaxing. We were with 2 daughters who really enjoyed the swimming pool. Carlo comes quicker than an ambulance if you have an emergency and could repair I think anything he wants ;) If you hesitate between 2 locations, don''t think further, just book!"

Car: necessary

You can get to "Casa del Marchi" from SS 302 Via Faentina road from Florence to Borgo San Lorenzo. At the signpost of the Km. 18,2, turn right towards Salaiole-Montepulico. Keep on until the next signpost for Montepulico, turn right and after 2 Km you'll see the cottage entrance gate on your left. We strongly suggest to have a car since the nearest village is 4 Km away (2,5 miles).

Florence downtown with its enormous historical and architectural heritage is just 20 Km away (12,5 miles).

The Mugello Valley, the Green Paradise over Florence, is within easy reach (15 mins ride) and offers several terrific sites, such as the Bilancino Lake (sailing, windsurf, beaches); the MotoGP circuit Autodromo del Mugello providing plenty of sport events, Motocross International circuit at Polcanto for dirty bikes fans; the Aviosuperfice di Galliano (airport for ultra light plains and helicopters), Barberino di Mugello (12 Km - 7,5 miles) with one off the biggest Outlet Village in Italy, and the glorius breathtaking medieval towns of Scarperia and Borgo San Lorenzo.
