An Agriturismo in the Center of Florence?

One of the most popular searches on FlorenceAccommodation.com, and also on Google, seems to be farmhouse in florence center. We imagine that anyone doing this search is actually thinking of a farmhouse farmhouses near to the center of Florence, looking in fact for something in the countryside, otherwise what type offarmhouse would it be? :-)

At the same time, the thought takes up back to the times when Dante walked around the city, when the city was much smaller that now and farms were located just outside the city walls and the main monuments were really just a few steps away from the woods and you could get fresh air as soon as you left the city walls. Today’sagriturismo, however, were born much much later. ;-)

Today, to find the first actual working farm estates near the city, you need to go look a thte area of Scandicci, or toward the boundaries of the Florentine Chianti area, in the vicinity of Pontassieve or in Fiesole. You can also consider all of the accommodations in the area around Florence up to arrive to Mugello seeing as it is easy to reach with public transportation as well as by car and be able to enjoy the calm serenity and authentic Florentine countryside without being too far from the historical center of the city.

Neat to imagine the countryside in Piazza Santa Maria Novella!
