della Vigna – is a large house whose outer walls were built
before the period of Giotto, as for back as a thousand years. Even
today you can see an arch built drypack into the wall. Probablythis
was one of the entrances into the castle of Vespignano from which
depended the present Comune of Vicchio.
From this historic house the eye travels across our little wineyard over the
green hills towards Vicchio to arrive as far as the summit of Falterona, a mountain
once venerated by the ancient Etruscans. Towards the west the eye sweeps across
to Borgo San Lorenzo, capital of the Mugello with its 10.000 inhabitants, as
far as the Monte Morello and Monte Senario. At sunset the last rays of light
filter through to Florence.
The house offers a comfortable stay for up to 16 persons. There are eight bedrooms
with double beds, four bathrooms, big and small livingrooms where one can sit
in perfect peace or in pleasant company. The large fireplace in the main livingroom
offers an ideal gathering place in front of a cheerful fire, either to play cards,
storytell or roast the delicious meat of Mugello. Also the kitchen is large and
spacious and allows one to cook and taste freshly prepared food on the big marble
Outside the sunny loggias await you for breakfast in true holiday spirit. Here
you can relax with a good book at teatime, or sip a cup of coffee while chatting
to friends and preparing the barbecue.
