“Villa il Canto” is situated in a very small group of houses in the Apennines ( about 450 a.s.l.) very close to the “Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi” (a national park) and the village of Castagno d’Andrea birthplace of Andrea del Castagno, one of the protagonists of 15th century Florentine painting. Surrounding the area are the high mountain tops covered with thick woods culminating in the Falterona from where the Arno river is born, ideal therefore for those who love naturalistic excursions but also visiting Florence, better still by train from the station of Dicomano and the towns of the Mugello. The residence is made up of two houses, the villa and the annex. The garden can be used by the guests from both accommodations and has a swimming pool (11.50x5.50, 1.50m deep)(01/05-30/09) with garden furniture (barbeque, wood-fired oven), a Jacuzzi (3x3, 0.90m deep), loggia for outdoor meals and a fitness room with equipment. The villa has central heating and wi-fi internet connection. Outdoor laundry room (washing machine). It is possible to request a maid and a chef. Car park for three cars on the property.
