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 with washing machine. 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

We had a perfect stay of 4 nights in Simona's house! In a very peacefull and beautiful environment in a very clean house with al lot of space. A warm welcome with breakfast-and basic foods for an easy start. Further on are Simona and her family very nice and warm people. I would recommend her house to my best friends.

Simona was really welcoming on arrival-and had left us with supplies, which were very welcome as we had arrived on a holiday day. It is a beautiful apartment with wonderful views. Despite the heat of August the place was cool, and the walk down to the lakeside just a few minutes. Great place to be as it is so quiet, but the usual tourist places are close. Thoroughly recommend the place!

Simonas apartment was wonderful! She gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived at her place for 4 nights. It is just like in the pictures, very cozy and clean. The location is perfect: You have a beautiful view over the lake, which is very nearby, and the neighborhood is very quiet. It also doesn't take a lot of time to visit other cities in Tuscany. The train to Firenze needs about 30 minutes. Her tips for our stay were also very useful, for example with restaurants, supermarkets and attractions nearby. We enjoyed our stay very much and would really recommend this place to everyone looking for a great vacation home in the Tuscany!

Simona User ProfileSimona is a superhost.

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.
