About the property

Casabella

"Casa Bella" is an ancient villa, built in 1796, surrounded by the beautiful Florentine hills.

The villa had been built by the monks of the nearby monastery of Montesenario to host the numerous pilgrims who came from Florence; at that time they had to walk a day and a half to go from Florence to this famous sanctuary. "Casa Bella" was built to allow people to sleep and eat, and the day after they could continue their journey.

The location offers an oasis to relax in the beautiful countryside of Florence and it's only 17 km from the historic center of Florence.

The refurbishment of this house was completed 2 years ago, respecting the traditions and spirit of the period in which it was built .

About Guido

My name is Guido and I was born in Florence where I actually live with my wife Tiziana and our three boys. I'm an engineer and I traveled all over the world for business. I'm a curious person with many interests, last year I became chef for passion because I love good food and as I love good wines too, I decided to study in deep this subject and I became sommelier...but I have many other interests to tell you if you come.

Guido purchased this apartment in 1978

Why Guido chose Pratolino

"Casa Bella" is an ancient villa with an interesting story.

It had been built by the monks of Montesenario Monastery to host the pilgrims, it was used as a home where the pilgrims could sleep after a day's walk coming from Florence.

In 1796 it was refurbished and took its present form.

The location offers an oasis to relax in the beautiful florentine countryside and it's only 17 km from the historic center of Florence.

My parents bought it in 1978, the refurbishment of this house was recently completed with special attention to the history of the Villa, respecting the traditions and spirit of the period in which it was built, using original materials like: 'terracotta', stone walls and ceilings with original wooden beams.

I live in Florence but when I have the possibility I adore to stay in Casabella because it's a real paradise! The landscape is amazing and you can really regenerate yourself because the air is full of oxigen!

What makes this apartment unique

In our country residence you will have a great time enjoying the peace of nature and the terrific view of the hills from our infinity pool.The complex is nested in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by olive groves and cypress trees. His position is one of the best in Tuscany because it is only few kilometers far from Florence and thanks to the centric position you could plan many excursions to wonderful cities full of art and historical monuments such as Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca eccetera.

For those who live the holiday as an opportunity to do sports they can go horseback riding, playing golf, walking trails, fishing, windsurfing and sailing or swimming in the nearby Lake of Bilancino. If you are crazy for shopping you can enjoy in the amazing Barberino designer outlet, where you can find the more important Italian fashion brand.

The residence is not far from some beautiful medioeval town such as San Gimignano, Vinci, Volterra, San Miniato and in 2 hours you can arrive to Siena and Pisa where you can see the famous leaning tower.

For those who choose the holiday as an opportunity to do sports can go horseback riding, playing golf, walking trails, fishing, windsurfing and sailing or take in the nearby Lake of Bilancino.

To do shopping of clothing, bags, shoes and accessories, you can not miss the visit of the Designer Outlet Barberino di Mugello (30 min by car), designed as a true Renaissance village where you can find the most sought after brands and designer labels in fashion such as Prada and others.

We are not so far from the “Chianti” area where you can visit famous wineyards and buy some bottles of the best wine of Italy.

From here you can spend a nice day in the sea side, easily you can go to Viareggio or if you love wonderful beaches you can go to Golfo di Baratti or Spiagge Bianche.

We are just 25 min to arrive to the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello - also known as Mugello Circuit - is a motor racing circuit and Italian motorcycle. Here every year takes place the world championship of MotoGP.
