Mugello farm or B&B holidays
The pleasure of welcoming guests
The tourist accommodation facilities in the Terre di Mugello network
(LINK) are home-managed holiday farms and bed & breakfasts where
kindness and good taste are unfailing assets and where quality is
the result of pleasant details and minute care, in a well balanced
mix of modern comfort and healthy rural living.
We enjoy being the heralds of Mugello, this green and unspoilt land
we deeply care for, but also – on a broader scale – we
like to reacquaint our guest with a too-often forgotten genuine and
convivial lifestyle, in which art (LINK), nature (LINK) and tradition
(LINK) are lively and tangible companions to listen to and tell about.
Food for the soul
At the holiday farms and bed & breakfasts of the Terre di Mugello
network you will be able to taste mouth-watering, home-cooked tuscan
cuisine (LINK) such as ribollita (a thick vegetable and bread soup)
or the local tortelli with potato filling. You won't easily forget
a Florentine-style beef steak barbecued on glowing embers and washed
down with Chianti wine and a good chat, at peace with yourselves,
with nature and with time, re-discovering the forgotten pleasures
of colours, smells, tastes and amiable companionship.
Wine of grapes and bread from the oven
When staying on our farms, everyone – but especially city families
with small children – will be thrilled to discover an open window
on the countryside and its genuine produce: fruit picked daily from
the orchard, vegetables ripened to perfection in our very own back
garden, home-made 'wine of grapes' (as we jokingly call it as opposed
to its bought-from-the-shops counterpart...), freshly baked bread,
preserves tasting of ripe fruit, sweet-smelling honey bearing the
multifold scent of the flowers in our woods.
Holiday Farm accommodation
The lawful Italian definition of 'agritourism' is tourist accommodation
on working farms. Accommodation on our holiday farms is provided in
a choice of rooms and self-contained units, and offers a unique opportunity
to find one's energies regenerated through nature, rediscovering the
forgotten pleasure of peaceful sleeping and quiet country nights with
starry skies, crickets singing, the scent of grass. Our farmsteads
overlook landscapes of major natural beauty which offer to the traveler
peace, serenity and rest as well as the opportunity to come into contact
with the Tuscan countryside, its traditions, products (LINK) and people.
Bed & Breakfast accommodation
An ever growing number of travelers prefer bed-and-breakfast accommodation
to traditional hotels and even more so to hotel chains, because home
hospitality offers informal accommodation in non-standard rooms in
'real' houses, lived-in by 'real' people. Pleasing decoration, cleanliness,
comfort, good amenities and a rich traditional home made morning meal:
the bed-and-breakfast philosophy perfectly matches the Terre di Mugello
guidelines of quality, expertise, commitment and care for guests,
who are welcome to share the homes we live in and enjoy opening to
seal of quality
All our holiday farms and bed & breakfasts are lawfully licensed
to provide tourist accommodation services. The tourist department
of our Mountain Community Council (Comunità Montana del Mugello)
has devised a round ceramic plate with blue lozenge on a white backround,
bearing the name “Mugello” in blue and the name of the
facility in blue and gold.
Such sign identifies any and all licensed tourist accommodation businesses
in the Mugello area and acts as a seal of quality for visitors. The
plate was designed by a local artist, Giulia Pasquini, and was inspired
by an ancient medieval tile of the Romanesque baptismal font in the
Faltona church near Borgo San Lorenzo.
As a further guarantee, here we only allow to become members of the
Terre di Mugello network such facilities that meet the quality standards
listed in our hospitality chart (LINK). Our homes are comfortable,
with large fireplaces, old wood-beamed ceilings, large and bright
rooms overlooking green and pleasant views, often in historic villas
or traditional Tuscan farmhouses, carefully restored so as to both
preserve their original features and to adapt them to the highest
standards for tourist accommodation.
When you book your holiday accommodation through the Terre di Mugello
official web site, you can rely on a warm and personal welcome in
the facilities managed personally by our members, and avail yourselves
of the best possible rates because they are offered directly by our
