The holiday farm Casale Le Pergole is immersed in the splendid countryside of the Florentine hills and looks out over an immense valley. A breathtaking panorama takes the eye as far as the foot of Monte Falterona, the mountain which gives birth to Florence’s renowned river, the Arno. Immersed in the heart of the countryside, its exclusive position nevertheless allows the visitor to reach the centre of Florence in only twenty minutes, the city then being the gateway to the whole of Tuscany with its wealth of places steeped in art and history to visit.
The original rustic character was rigorously maintained during renovation work with particular care being paid to detail: some walls have been stripped back to bare stone, showing the quality of the stonework. Likewise, the chestnut beams have been left exposed and the old tiles can be admired. The antique terracotta flooring has been preserved and used to floor most of the building. The outside areas have been paved with local stones to recreate the original flavour of the farmyard.
A charming swimming-pool surrounded by secular olive trees has been installed with total respect to the environmental context.
Next to the barn, under the loggia there is an old wood-fuelled oven, in perfect working condition where, during the summer months, typical dishes are cooked to delight the palate of the guests.
Breakfast is provided for the guests in the dining-room on the ground floor of the farmhouse.
