The heat of these days is already a taste of the coming summer in Tuscany: if you have not yet found the right place for your holidays, Mugellooffers everything you need for the summer months between leisure, culture and sport. Not to be missed at least one day at Lago di Bilancino in the town of Barberino di Mugello, where there are two real-equipped beach: the “Bagnomaria” and the “Bahia Café“. Here you will have umbrellas and sun beds for tanning, then enjoying the cool waters of the lake. There are also numerous outdoor activities like canoeing, windsurfing and fishing. Of great interest also the protected  area Gabbianello Oasis, where you can take guided tours, mountain bike or on foot trails. For lovers of outdoor life, there is also the possibility of horse riding through the many stables in the Mugello.

If you are passionate about art as well as sightseeing in Florence, which is only 30 minutes from Borgo San Lorenzo and Barberino di Mugello, you can enjoy discovering castles and historic villages that are located throughout the area of Mugello, the Medici Trebbio castle and the San Martino Fortress, the birthplace of Giotto, the Romanesque church of San Giovanni in Petroio, the Scarperia town with its famous knives.

Then the summer festivals dedicated to “His Majesty” the potato “Tortello” and the typical Tuscan cuisine: every village has its own, such as the Mushroom Festival in Scarperia or the Tortello Festival at Grezzano.

If you want to spend your summer in Mugello, Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort staff will be happy to suggest the most interesting events and the best activities for your holiday: the Villa guests also have complimentary use of mountain bikes for excursions in the countryside and of our swimming pool surrounded by the large park.
