Villa Belcanto

The property is located in Tuscany, in the beautiful Mugello valley, in the Municipality of Vicchio. The municipality of Vicchio boasts the birthplace of Giotto and Beato Angelico. It is easily reachable from Barberino di Mugello exit of the A1 (15 kilometers), while Florence is only 30 kilometers away and can be reached by car in 30 minutes. Just 10 kilometers away is the Mugello international circuit, the place chosen by Ferrari for the development of F1 single-seater car and home to the Italian stage of the MotoGP world championship. For sports lovers, there is also the 18-hole...

golf course of Poggio dei Medici as well as the possibility of windsurfing and sailing in the splendid Bilancino reservoir. For those who love nature there are hundreds of routes available for trekking or mountain biking.

The property expands over an area of about five hectares sloping down from the top of the hill to the stream that flows downstream. The main building, divided into four cadastral units, has an area of 1,200 square meters. The property includes other rural estate units for about 500 square meters, annexes, warehouses of about 500 square meters, as well as a small church.

The central structure of the building dates back to 1200. In all likelihood, the complex of buildings served as a way station for horses and travelers and at the same time served as a lookout place. The battlements of the tower that was covered in modern times are still recognizable and from which, today used as a reading room, you can enjoy a 360-degree view and dominate the valley in all its extension. The precious stained glass windows signed by Chini date back to the Art Nouveau period.

The villa overlooks a large garden shaded by many trees. Sunbathing and swimming are guaranteed by a large swimming pool (16x8).From the swimming pool you can enjoy an endless view over the entire Mugello valley.

The old tennis court, equipped with lighting for night play, is just waiting to be refurbished to host the challenges of the hosts and their guests.

A part of the villa is dedicated to conviviality, which includes a large fireplace for coals and rotisseries with adjacent wood-burning oven, a large living room with fireplace, an industrial kitchen, and a bathroom.
