Set in a scenic position overlooking the Mugello valley and protected by the Apennine mountains rising behind it, Attulaio is surrounded by oak and chestnut woods interspersed with patches of farmed land, olive groves and vegetable gardens.

In the old farmhouse, finely restored to enhance its original character typical of the Mugello hills, Rosanna, Paolo, Giacomo and Nicola give guests their warm welcome in three apartments sleeping 8 people.

Farm accommodation
The tourist accommodation units, one of them sleeping 2 and two others sleeping 3 guests each, were restored so as to offer visitors all possible modern amenities, and Rosanna furnished them in a simple yet comfortable way, trying to use as much as possible the same (but carefully refurbished!) old rustic furniture which has served these very rooms since time immemorial.

Your stay at Attulaio will be all the more unforgettable for the warmth of our fireplace and the panoramic views over the surrounding valleys and hills, with memorable sunsets.

Attulaio is the perfect choice if you wish to spend a relaxing holiday away from the noise and frantic pace of modern cities, both with or without the company of a party of friends and both indoors and out of doors. Upon request we arrange painting and cooking classes, while outdoor enthusiasts will have plenty of opportunities to explore on foot or by bike the many paths crossing the woods and countryside in the area.

The farm

Attulaio's farming activity specializes in the famous PGI chestnut variety of the Mugello area, and our chestnut trees grow at about 600 metres above sea level. We also produce fresh eggs, excellent potatoes, fine olive oil, vegetables and fruit.

The woods also yield delicious soft fruit (especially wild strawberries and blackberries) and mushrooms.

Where we are
Attulaio is just 8 km from Vicchio di Mugello, an ancient town protected by 14th century walls, where such great artists as Giotto and Beato Angelico were born. With its lush countryside of forests, green valleys and agricultural crops thriving thanks to an excellent climate, Mugello is one of the most beautiful areas to visit in the surroundings of Florence, which is just a 50 minutes' drive (or 1 hour's train ride) away.
