Villa Colle di Giotto is a traditional Tuscany country house surrounded by nature. Located close to Florence, it has been recently renovated and transformed into a fully equipped holiday villa.

Villa Colle di Giotto is available at your exclusive use for rent per week (7 nights starting on Saturdays) for up to 8 people.
Check-in and check-out are on Saturdays. If you are looking to arrive or leave on any other day than Saturday, please get in touch with us directly.

The space
Villa Colle di Giotto is part of a farm complex, but it is completely independent.
To get to the house you will be driving on a country road lined with wheat fields and old farms. It is a relaxing retreat for nature lovers and for people who want to disconnect from a hectic life. You will be visiting Florence and surroundings, and then relaxing after a day of exploring, by taking a stroll along the fields, or private yoga and meditation sessions.
The building consists of two floors: on the ground floor there are a big kitchen with traditional marble countertop and a fireplace, a spacious living room with a big wooden table and relaxing area with sofas and armchairs, and a bathroom (without shower); on the second floor there are 4 double bedrooms (2 with ensuite bathroom), with beautiful views on the countryside, and a shared bathroom with shower. In the patio there are a small kitchen for baking with a wood oven for pizza, a flowerbed with aromatic herbs, and many sitting corners all around. The big garden hosts an old stone well, an outdoor shower and a vegetable garden where you will find local products 100% bio.

Mariagrazia, the owner, is the daughter of the family who owns the house for generations.
She is primarily a yoga teacher and the owner of Ganesh Yoga Mugello, the main yoga center in the area. She will be more than happy to entertain you with private yoga and meditation sessions on the premises of the villa: this is the ideal place, surrounded by a wide and peaceful countryside and situated on a private land where there are a wooden deck and a lawn, which are suitable both for single lessons and for bigger parties.
In the morning, in the open space on the wooden deck, you will be looking East to the sunrise, while breathing in deeply all the nature around, and starting with energy a new day. Or in the late afternoon, after a day of exploring, you will reconnect with nature while sunset is colouring the sky.
Villa Colle di Giotto is certainly an ideal location for contemplation and recovering your inner balance.

You are welcome to enjoy the serenity of Mugello countryside, to relax in the spacious garden, to prepare some pizza in the over or a delicious pasta sauce with some vegetables from the garden. Vegetables will be available in a basket once or twice a week, according to seasonal availability.
The gardener will come once a day, usually in the early morning, for watering and taking care of the vegetable garden.

If you want to learn more of Italian cooking or pizza making, we will be happy to organize for you a private lesson with a local chef.
We can also provide an official tourist guide for private tours, or an official nature guide for trekking on the Apennines.

List of activities we can provide
- Cooking classes: We will be happy to arrange a course to learn the basics, or pasta, or pizza making;
- Yoga and meditation: Guests can use the wooden deck or the garden for yoga and meditation, or ask us for private sessions at the villa;
- Art and Creativity: Want to do some painting while enjoying the Tuscan sun? An experienced painter will be available for you for private lessons. This is the place and the time to develop your creativity;
- Trekking and hiking: Trekking and hiking are nice and different ways of exploring the beauty of Tuscany. There are many tracks on the hills or on the Apennines that you can explore alone or with a local nature guide.
- Exploring: This area offers some splendid cultural day trips, such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, are just some of the interesting Tuscan places to be mentioned.

Guest access
All the house and the garden are at disposal of the guests.

Other things to note
Take advantage of the opportunity to have private yoga and meditation sessions everyday or when it suits you, on the terrace overlooking the countryside.

Location

Vicchio, Toscana, Italy

The land of Mugello is an unspoilt area in northern Tuscany, a few kilometers north of Florence. The area is a wide, green valley crossed in parts by the Sieve river.
It is the cradle of the famous Medici family and of painters such as Giotto and Beato Angelico. It still is a hidden gem of Tuscany, with history, wild nature, traditional Tuscan food and a fresher climate during the hot Italian summers.
The villa is located in Lo Spinoso, Mugello, Tuscany (35 km from the center of Florence, close to the small towns of Borgo San Lorenzo and Vicchio). It is surrounded by green hills and wheat fields. A very quiet place for travellers who want to reconnect with nature. Close by you you will find the House of Giotto, where the architect of the famous and splendid Campanile di Giotto in Florence (known as Giotto's bell tower) was born back in 1267.
Also nearby: Mugello circuit (12 km), Fiesole (28 km), Bilancino Lake (20 km). For shopping lovers there is McArthurGlen Barberino Designer Outlet (23 km).
