Borgo La Fratta – just a 25 minutes drive from Firenze in Tuscany – is a wonderfully restored farmhouse dating back to the Medici, a noble family of the Florentine period. Working for seven year the traditional old farmstead has been lovingly restored and converted into tasteful, fully equipped, self-contained 1, 2 and bedroom apartments each with access to a common swimming pool / barbecue area. Set in a typical hillside landscape on the Bilancino lake (the biggest Tuscan lake) , this 3-hectare historic estate - at 300 metres above sea level - is within easy driving distance of Florence (25 km), Siena (75 km), Lucca (60 km), Pisa (70 km), Volterra (70 km), San Gimignano 50 and the Tuscan coastline.
Near the Farmhouse is possible to practise golf (Poggio dei Medici golf club), horse tours, fishing and canoeing lake (Bilancino lake), visit the the Mugello International race-course. In the hamlet is possible to rent mountain bikes, to reserve massage, to reserve typical Tuscan dinner.
With quality accommodation and fittings, this is an ideal base for your family holiday or for a group of friends to explore Tuscany.
The farmhouse on the estate is divided into two and three-room apartments, all practical and very functional. In each apartment a Tuscan Renaissance theme is combined with the comforts of modern life. The aged wooden ceiling beams and the furnishings create a warm and homely atmosphere within the apartments. All apartments are provided with modern facilities including spacious bedrooms, modern kitchens, ensuite bathrooms, quality bed linen and towels.
