La Noce di Francesca Mugello Villas in Tuscany with pool
La Noce di Francesca - A historic farmhouse on the hills at the foot of the Apennines
This villa, named "La Noce di Francesca" by the name of the place and the owner, is located in the open countryside, in the middle of 3 splendid Tuscan valleys. These are Val di Sieve valley with its groves and vineyards of the Chianti Rufina, the Mugello with its Bilancino Lake, and the Casentino, rich of ancient towers, castles and of beautiful villages which still have a charming atmosphere, where the time has really stopped. To reach the centre of Florence you need only 45 minutes by car, but we suggest the train, available from the train station 5 km far from the villa and takes only 35 minutes to arrive to the historical centre of the city.
Around the villa there is a large garden and the surrounding olive groves are all around, which give, every year in November, an excellent oil with the traditional tuscan taste. In the garden there is a barbecue at guests disposal.
The pool is private, with sunbeds, wood chairs and sun umbrellas, it has a depth from 80 cm to 2 metres and it mesures 3.5x13 metres.
The structure is composed by 3 apartments obtained by an old hayloft which had been built during 3 different phases dated back to different periods. The anciest stones which are found on the main wall, have been a part of an ancient medieval tower. Up to 10 years ago, here inside, there were our animals. The apartments preserve high stone walls. Getting in across the doors with wrought iron frames, you can breath the same air you could breath some years ago in the old country houses. The elegant furnishing contribute to give a particular atmosphere. The headboards of the bed have been done using the wood of the old troughs of the animals of our stables, or of the old gates which were used to close the animals’ pens. The comfortable sheep wool mattresses have been handmade by the upholster of the village, which still works as people worked 100 years ago. Each apartment has an independent entrance. Two apartments of 70 sq. metres and fine for 2/4 people are on the ground floor. The biggest apartment (the double than the others) is fine for 6 people. The bathrooms, big and comfortable, have a big a spacious shower, with a curtain which is changed every time for a perfect hygiene.

All dining and cooking equipment: oven, dishwasher, fridge.
