Lovely ground-floor apartment, romantically set and tastefully decorated.
We recently spent 3 days here to explore the Mugello region and we can highly recommend this apartment to any couples looking for a peaceful, slightly out of the way domicile set in a wooded area where all you can hear is the wind rustling the trees and birds chirping, but nonetheless still near enough to all the main sights in this area, including Florence. The apartment was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and has everything one needs and (and more) to enjoy a self-catering holiday. The small kitchen unit is new with induction hob, and fridge but no oven - but a microwave grill is also available. All the kitchen utensils/Crockery etc were very clean and looked new. The only negative side for maybe some, is that the working space in the kitchen is very small, so not so good for anyone wanting to do some heavy cooking. There is also a filter coffee machine and electric kettle. Extremely clean bathroom and plenty of hot water. The owners were more than helpful with the arrangements before and during our stay, with a lot of information in the apartment. All very cosy and private and we had the best sleep ever - no mosquitos at that particular time and the slightly cooler temperatures were a blessing after boiling in the south for 2 weeks! Will come again!
A fairy place in the Tuscan hillside
Last week I came to this small but beautiful cottage situated on the countryside in Polcanto, a very small community in Tuscany, only 20 minutes from Florence. The cottage is situated in a place cold "I Carpini". This place is only two kilometers from Polcanto, a village with about 500 habitants.
No, I didn’t came for visiting Florence. I’m already know this beautiful capital of Tuscany very well, because I lived, and I’m still living near Florence.
I’d escape from my house with my wife and my youngest boy(40 degrees Celsius) to a fresher place.
The first evening, when I sat there in the garden, my minds went to a poesy written by Lord Byron. Lord Byron wrote this poesy at the seaside (Marina di Pisa) so I had to modify his poem to describe the hillside:
“ Are not the woods, with all the birds, the hills and the skies,
a part of me, and of my soul.
As I of them”.
That’s exactly what I felt in that particular moment.
I really relax, Far away from everything. It can’t be better. That’s for sure.
And the Landlord? Ms. Romanella. I’m not lying when I say, she is the most helpful and lovely Landlord I ever met in my life!
And her daughter Isabella? I was sending my request about nine thirty PM the day before. And about midnight every formality were done!
Talk about efficiency!
At last I will recommend this place to everyone.
I think I will write a Short story about our experience in this beautiful place.
Polcanto, un angolo da favola
Arrivando alla fattoria "I Carpini" di Polcanto ci si sente immersi in un oasi di verde fresca ed accogliente. Un vero mondo da favola: verde, quiete, ottima accoglienza. Anche la case - fornita di ogni comfort dalla re wife al cotone per cucire - sembra uscita dalla favola di Biancave e i sette nani.Eccellente e attenta ad ogni desiderio degli ospiti, la figura della signora Romanella, una delicata fata dei boschi, Un antico proverbio recitava che" Ai Carpini mancava solo il sale" volendo sottolineare l'autosifficienza della fattoria che, prima della guerra produceva di tutto:olio, vino, miele e tanto altro. A me, che il sale l'ho già trovato in casa, sembra proprio che a Polcanto non manchi niente nemmeno oggi per un vacanza rilassante e a pochi chilometri da Firenze.
