Near Florence there is this magnificent castle, part of a picturesque ancient hamlet overlooking the Arno valley from an upland.
The origin of this charming place in the heart of Tuscany is lost in history but can be traced back to the Etruscans, the hamlet was very relevant during the centuries for its strategic position dominating the surrounding lands.
The tower house still existing today has medieval origins and was owned by important noble families and monastic orders. The several crosses carved on the walls of the hamlet are a sign of the link between this ancient estate and the crusaders.
This magnificent castle in Florence is currently used as a tourist accommodation facility and is divided into typical, Tuscan rustic style apartments located on the farm or in the hamlet. 
The castle is spread over five levels and, thanks to some careful renovation works, is in excellent conditions and can be admired in all its splendor.
This farm holiday facility has a surface of around 1,800m2 divided into four independent buildings, for a total of 58 bedrooms.
Around this prestigious estate there is a large land of around 35 hectares, including 6 hectares of productive olive groves benefitting from one of the best soils for this kind of production.
This property, surrounded by a park full of tall trees, also offers a lovely swimming pool with a view over the luxuriant hills surrounding it.

Tuscany Florence - hills

Florence, the capital of Tuscany, has undisputed charm and beauty that is known throughout the world, not just as the city of monuments and historical buildings, but also as the home to many period villas located in the historic center or on the hills surrounding the "cradle of the Renaissance."
Florence is located in a scenographic position, in the middle of a wide valley surrounded by the hills of Cercina, Fiesole, Settignano, Arcetri, Poggio Imperiale, and Bellosguardo. In this landscape, there are numerous luxury villas and typically Tuscan estates, but also period villas of historic relevance.
There are many attractions that the city of Florence has to offer: famous squares such as Piazza della Signoria, Piazza del Duomo, Santa Croce, San Lorenzo, its historic theaters, and bridges, and last but not least, the city's walls and doors. 
Anyone wishing to purchase an exclusive property can find one that suits his or her needs in the sublime setting of the city of Florence and its charming surroundings.
