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.
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
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.
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
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.
