The holidays apartment is located at Bilancino Lake in the heart of the green Mugello Valley in Tuscany. It’s a land rich of history, culture, traditions, food and lots of outdoors activities.

The Space

The accommodation is part of our home, that was a typical farmer’s house dating back to 15th century. We carefully restored it over the years with patience and passion to bring it back to its country and rural splendor by using original materials as wood, cotto and serena stone.

Guest Access

The apartment is located on the first floor and has its private entrance and heating. It has a fully equipped kitchenette with oven and dishwasher, a large sitting room, one double bedroom, one twin and bathroom.. A nice panoramic and relaxing area with barbecue is at your disposal, as well as a parking lot. Included in the price you have linens (towels and sheets), Wi-Fi connection and Sat-TV. If you need children’s accessories, just ask.

The Neighborhood

The house has a stunning view over the lake and Mugello area, and is immersed into a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Getting around

In addition it’s strategically located since you can reach main towns of the area, such as Barberino di Mugello, San Piero a Sieve and Scarperia in about 10 minutes driving. The Mugello Circuit is about 15 minutes far. For shopping lovers the Barberino Designer Outlet is about 5 minutes driving.
You can reach Florence by car in about 30 minutes or easily by train from San Piero a Sieve. Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Chianti and Valdorcia are less than an hour and a half driving distance.

Other Things to Note

The apartment is located in a very quiet area, if you’re too loud and noisy you may disturb the other people.
Your pets are welcome, and they can stay in the fenced area outside the apartment.

  • We only had a few days here in this amazing apartment. Apart from loving the countryside and the slow and gentle pace after 10 days in ultra busy tourist areas, we had brilliant weather and enjoyed cooking up a feast and just relaxing. We were greeted with a wonderful cheery smile and a basic showing of the apartment. I think Simona was a little embarrassed about her limited english. This is not a problem, we undedstood every smile, hand guesture and demonstration. The apartment itself, what can I say, it was the cleanest apartment I have ever stayed in. It was perfect, great kitchen, beautiful bathroom and shower, very comfortable bed, which didn't squeak every time you rolled over...or ;-) Two tips, as before, if you are going to Florence, go by train, so easy, and second tip, don't go out for the day and leave windows open, you'll get more flys than an Aussie BBQ.
    When we left early to head to Bologna, both Simona and her husband farewelled us with beautiful smiles. Thank You so much, we would have loved to get to know you and share a wine in the little private garden...with the Chook (red Rooster..)

  • Beautiful location with lovely views of the lake. Great restaurants and shopping nearby. Simona was a great host, very welcoming and provided us with last minute breakfast supplies which we really appreciated. The apartment is freshly renovated, was very clean and spacious.

  • Wir waren als Familie mit 2 Erwachsenen und 3 Kindern für eine Nacht bei Simone. Die Lage ist wunderschön mit einem tollen Ausblick, oberhalb des Stausees, wunderbar ruhig. Die Wohnung ist wie auf den Fotos dargestellt und einem perfekten modernen Zustand. Wir waren in 35 Minuten in Florenz und einer Stunde in Siena. Danke.

About
Nata, cresciuta e scappata da Firenze. Da cinque anni ho scelto il verde Mugello come casa per la mia famiglia. La pace del Lago di Bilancino e la quiete della natura sono un toccasana per l’anima, anche nelle giornate più buie, soprattutto se il tuo vicino di casa è un picchio verde. La mia vita qui è un ritorno alla vita di una volta, una riscoperta delle tradizioni della cultura contadina e dei prodotti della sua terra. My name is Simona, I was born, raised and then escaped from Florence. I chose the green Mugello Valley to start my family: the silence of Bilancino Lake and the peaceful atmosphere of nature are the perfect panacea for any bad day, especially if your neighbour is a green woodpecker. My life here in Mugello is slow and took me back to my farmers’ Tuscan roots, discovering the beauty of simple life and handmade products.
