A few km from Florence, among the rolling hills, the tall cypress trees, and against the background of mountain peaks and passes, stretches the territory of the Mugello. Silent waters, a delighful countryside friendly peaceful and hard-working people, healthy food, the places of the Medici, the wine-roads, the museums, the historical villas, all to be found just outside Florence. History culture, high quality service in a renewed relations with nature. These are the things the Mugello has to offer.
The valley in the Mugello is a reference point to the Upper-Middle part of the catchment basin of the river Sieve: it is a wide bowl confined by the main watershed of the Apennines (from Mount Citerna to Giogo di Villore) in the North, by the spurs of Mount Giovi and Mount Senario in the South. It is closed in the west by the Mounts Calvana beyond which the province of Prato spreads. In this area we find Vaglia, San Piero a Sieve, Barberino di Mugello, Scarperia, Borgo San Lorenzo and Vicchio. The Mugello landscape is a complex: from the thick wood-lands of the ridges where boars, roe-deer and foxes reign up to the areas of chestnut woods and olive groves, from the vast flat land of old terraces confined by slopes cultivated with wheat and sun flowers, up to the fertile valley bottom where the main inhabited centres and roads of communication are situated.
It is possible to construct a relationship between man and nature in the Mugello. The still pure environment of the mountains, rivers, lakes and the still waters of this part of hidden Tuscany invite to spend a holiday in the open air. The Medici Family, which originally come from Mugello, left many positive and beautiful signs in this area, of growing wealth and political power, which was closely tied to the most innovative artistic and endeavours of the time. The visitors can discover castles, villas, convents and friaries immersed in a landscape co-exist in charming, evocative harmony.
At Mugello, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
