Yes (max 1)
Description of Acone 1Halfway up a slope on a pretty hill there is a recently restored farmhouse and a delightful outbuilding from which 6 characteristic holiday apartments have been created. The owners, a very kind and welcoming couple that live in a farmhouse about 900 m away (in the grounds of VISTABELLA), won't miss the opportunity to offer you on your arrival a glass of Vinsanto of excellent quality. Shared with the guests of the small residence VISTABELLA , is a very lovely and original oval shaped swimming pool (28x14) surrounded by a lovely furnished solarium. Every apartment has its own external furnished area. The owner will organize a party celebrating the threshing of wheat, 'Festa della battitura del grano', in the last week of July, using age-old machinery and tractors. The owner has a horse riding school with 16 horses and instructors and on request will organize a 2-day horse-riding trekking with booking in nearby farm holiday homes. The owner can also organize tours of cellars with tasting in the Chianti Rufina as well as horse-riding excursions and horse-riding lessons in the property (approx. 120 ha) and cooking lessons. It is possible to organize lunches and dinners (also on the day of arrival) with the typical products from the farm in the 13th century cellar. Location: Only 500 m away is the small town of Acone (supermarket, grocers-pizzeria and bar in the summer), 7 km away is Rufina (3,5 km of which are interior roads) with shops of all types. In the town of Rufina you will find a small train station where it is possible to comfortably travel to the center of Florence (in circa 30 mins.) avoiding the city traffic. The apartments are about 30 km north east from Florence, 20 km from the zone of Mugello, noted for the characteristic greenery and for the numerous enchanting villages like Scarperia (famous for the production of valuable knives), Borgo S. Lorenze, Vicchio, etc..
