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.
