TO DO

Location and distances


The property is located on a hill not far from the Leonardian borgo of Vinci, which boasts artistic-cultural and landscape attractions. It lies in a strategic position between the cities of Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Pistoia and not far from the famous Padule di Fucecchio Nature Reserve, a dense network of paths in the largest Italian wetland, characterised by hydrogeological and landscape resources of particular interest and a great wealth of native flora and fauna. There are many little borghi dotting the whole territory, many of which are little known and away from the most common tourist itineraries but no less interesting than the more famous ones. Among them, besides Vinci, Artimino and Carmignano, is San Miniato, with its attractive historic centre and panoramic tower, Certaldo, a medieval borgo with castle and the birthplace of Boccaccio, and San Gimignano. It is also worth noting the proximity to numerous spas, the main ones being in Montecatini Terme, Monsummano Terme and Casciana Terme. The property is easily reached from the main airports of the region (Pisa at about 43 km and Florence at about 31 km) and from the Florence-Pisa-Livorno highway (Empoli exit about 6 km away). The nearest railway station is in Empoli (3.5 km), while the bus stop is just a short distance
