The agritourism Colle da Vinci is centered in the iconic landscape of central Tuscany. The masterful renovation of the ancient farmhouse, which resulted in five independent apartments, allowed to respect the traditional Tuscan architecture, granting at the same time modernity and comfort: the original structures made of majestic wood beams were maintained and highlighted by the functional furniture.
The agricultural holding stands at 300 m above sea level, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, in a panoramic location which allows to enjoy a pleasantly windy climate, ideal for midsummer vacations. The apartments develop from ground to first floor, all of which have an outside dining area, cooking facilities, TV, master bedroom, day beds and/or children’s beds, private bathroom and free wi-fi connectivity. The agritourism also offers a swimming pool from which you will be able to enjoy the breathtaking panorama underneath.
There are various typical restaurants and landmarks within a range of 2 km. Besides the renown cities of artistical interest such as Florence, Pisa or Siena (all of which reachable in less than an hour) the area of Montalbano offers evocative villages including Vinci, hometown of Leonardo, Etruscan archeological sites, hiking and mountain bike tracks, golf courses and a horse stables for riding. Monsummano natural thermal pools and climbing crag are also just 25 minutes away.
