Ancient Castle In Florence
Farm holiday resort with swimming pool in Tuscany
Ancient hamlet near Florence
Near Florence there is this magnificent castle, part of a picturesque ancient hamlet overlooking the Arno valley from an upland.
The origin of this charming place in the heart of Tuscany is lost in history but can be traced back to the Etruscans, the hamlet was very relevant during the centuries for its strategic position dominating the surrounding lands.
The tower house still existing today has medieval origins and was owned by important noble families and monastic orders. The several crosses carved on the walls of the hamlet are a sign of the link between this ancient estate and the crusaders.
This magnificent castle in Florence is currently used as a tourist accommodation facility and is divided into typical, Tuscan rustic style apartments located on the farm or in the hamlet.
The castle is spread over five levels and, thanks to some careful renovation works, is in excellent conditions and can be admired in all its splendor.
This farm holiday facility has a surface of around 1,800m2 divided into four independent buildings, for a total of 58 bedrooms.
Around this prestigious estate there is a large land of around 35 hectares, including 6 hectares of productive olive groves benefitting from one of the best soils for this kind of production.
This property, surrounded by a park full of tall trees, also offers a lovely swimming pool with a view over the luxuriant hills surrounding it.
