Sanvitale holiday farm
At Luco di Mugello, Agriturismo Sanvitale is a family-run certified organic farm offering quality tourist accommodation.

The tranquillity of the house and the beauty of its setting ensure a revitalizing and peaceful holiday for couples, families and parties of friends, who often become regular guests.

Anna Maria and Federico take pride and care in welcoming their guests in person with courtesy and care, in order to make their stay in Mugello as pleasant as possible.

The estate consists of the main farm and an adjoining stone barn, recently renovated throughout with natural building materials such as wood, traditional terracotta tiles and 'pietra serena' (the highly-prized local grey sandstone) and in full compliance with the dictates of building ecology and green architecture. To ensure a healthy night's sleep, we have chosen high quality slatted beds and latex foam mattresses for our guest rooms.

Tourist accommodation
Our renovated barn houses six double and two single bedrooms, all different in size and fittings.

The 8 ensuite rooms with central heating can accommodate up to 14 guests, who can also make themselves at home in the cozy lounge and the large well groomed garden.

Our visitor areas are suitable for wheelchair and disabled access, and there is plenty of parking space on private ground.

Home made meals
Our prices include a buffet breakfast of the typical food of the area: home-baked bread, cakes, sweets and biscuits made from our own organic flours, meals and preserves.

By arrangement, we also serve a set-price mouth watering Tuscan evening meal with traditional dishes and vegetarian dainties in our welcoming dining room. A typical dinner starts with appetizers and ends with desserts; only drinks are charged extra.

The farm
Our farm is a family business called Podere Macerata and we take pride and care in running it with organic methods respectful of the natural environment.
We produce and process honey, olives, vegetables, fruit and PGI Mugello chestnuts.

The most striking feature of our estate is the variety of crops and landscape: meadows, pasture land, plough, chestnut woods, olive groves, raspberry brambles, orchards, vegetable patches, beehives and oak forests. The reception area also operates a store selling our organic farm produce, and we are pleased to organize cooking classes and visits to the chestnut woods and to the workshop where our honey and preserves are processed and packaged.

Where we are
Agriturismo Sanvitale stands at an altitude of 380 metres above sea level near and is surrounded by meadows, fields, chestnut and oak woods, with a pleasantly fresh climate even in the height of summer.

Luco di Mugello is a village in the municipality of Borgo San Lorenzo in northern Tuscany, and it lies at about the same distance between the towns of Borgo, San Piero a Sieve and Scarperia. Florence is some 35 Km to the south and easily reached by the A1 motorway or by any of two scenic state roads, the Bolognese and the Faentina.

The neighbourhood
The area is particularly suitable for rambles on foot, by bike and on horseback. Several marked hiking tracks and a botanic itinerary will help you discover the countryside and its rural traditions. In the vicinity of Sanvitale you will also find stables to visit, for the delight of both children and grown-ups.
