Choose a resort near Florence and discover the beauty of Mugello

The Villa Campestri resort near Florence

Many tourists each year choose to spend their holidays in Tuscany in a Resort near Florence. Here’s why they choose it!

Discover the Mugello

In Tuscany, just a few kilometers from Florence, the territory of Mugello extends between the rolling hills and the tall cypress trees.

This fascinating area rich in history brings together two geographical areas: the Mugello proper and the Alto Mugello or Romagna Toscana.

In Mugello we find the villages of San Piero a Sieve, Barberino di Mugello, Scarperia, Borgo San Lorenzo, Vicchio and Dicomano. To the north, between the ridges of the Mugello and the passes that descend towards Romagna we find the Alto Mugello with Firenzuola, Palazzuolo sul Senio and Marradi.

A stay in Mugello will allow you to discover an ancient territory, strongly linked to centuries-old Tuscan traditions.

In fact, Mugello offers beautiful landscapes, friendly and hospitable people, genuine food, the opportunity to visit the Medici sites, museums, learn about traditional crafts, all at the gates of Florence.

The uncontaminated environment of the mountains, the rivers, the lakes of this hidden Tuscany invite to spend holidays in the open air, in a harmonious and rediscovered relationship between man and nature.

The advantages of a Resort near Florence

Staying in a Resort near Florence without a doubt offers many advantages.

You will have the opportunity to easily reach the Tuscan capital to visit the famous museums without being constantly immersed in the chaos of the city.

Smog, noise and traffic will only be distant memories.

Spending your holidays in Tuscany in a Resort near Florence will offer your vacation something more. It will give you the feeling of being immersed in an oasis of peace made of nature and history to be rediscovered.

  • Rafting;
  • Kayaks;
  • Hiking;
  • Yoga lessons;
  • Horse riding;
  • and so on.

Lake Bilancino in Barberino di Mugello also offers the possibility of swimming, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing as well as sport fishing. The adjoining naturalistic oasis of Gabbianello allows the knowledge of a humid habitat of great interest due to the presence of numerous species of birds.

In Mugello, a few kilometers from Florence, you can find traces of a glorious ancient history and visit splendid architectural remains such as the Medici villas of Trebbio and Cafaggiolo. In fact in the San Piero a Sieve area the Medicea lineage originated.

But let’s not forget about good food. In fact, in Mugello the Tuscan cuisine finds excellent expressions. From the old taverns that offer traditional Tuscan dishes to the most refined restaurants where young chefs reinterpret the great classics with mastery.

In addition, those traveling with their children can relax in the cool of the Mugello while the little ones can play safely in the park or in the pool of one of the beautiful resorts in the area.
