The Pozzo in the Municipality of Borgo San Lorenzo is a tiny rural hamlet about two kilometres from Ronta in Mugello, whose origins have been lost in the passage of time. Attached to the hills that lead up to Monte Giuvigiana and the Apennines that separate Tuscany from Romagna, it is about 500 m a.s.l., surrounded by the last olive groves and huge chestnut forests. The Ugolini farm still gathers the chestnuts and cultivates the olive trees in the way done in old times, with maximum respect for the environment and the simple but essential things that you can still find at the Pozzo.
There are holiday apartments, made from old Italian farmhouses and outbuildings, which have been renovated over the years but maintained their original look and feel of farm houses of olden days. They are all independent, equipped with central heating, and a few also have fireplaces. They have equipped kitchen, bedroom, bath with shower and small bedroom or sitting room with a sofa bed.
Outside you can relax in the large green areas surrounded by huge trees, there are tables and barbecue facilities. The position of the holiday homes invites long walks on foot or by mountain bike along the C.A.I. paths that spread out along the Apennines.
About 2 km away is the train station of Ronta, and in 45 minutes you can reach Florence. Just a few kilometres away are all the most beautiful and important places in Mugello, from Giotto's birthplace in Vicchio to the castle of Cafaggiolo, the ancient Medici residence, to the Bilancino lake, Mugello's beach, to Scarperia with its castle and modern racetrack, and finally the Barberino Outlets for a shopping pause.
