Il Castelluccio is an old medieval little castle, dated back to 1100 b.C. It is situated at the slopes of the fascinating and uncontaminated valley of Mugello, near the wonderful city of art Florence. The castle holds a hotel and is in a marvellous landscape, which stands out for its geographical position and its history: mountains, hills, green valleys, uncontaminated streams, pure air, unique atmospheres, colours, sounds, sweet smells make this place really magic.
The building has been renovated carefully according to the original shape and is situated on the top of a rock that dominates the valley underneath. The wide valley is surrounded by many stone terracings that, together with the structure of the castle, revive memories of ancient times. The hotel is surrounded by a private park and fenced by oaks and cypresses, which alternate with many green areas.
Here there is a nice swimming pool of irregular shape (6x10 ms), dug into the rock in front of the main tower entrance with Roman staircase (the tower is open from 15th May to 30th September).
Il Castelluccio has a wide reception room with a living room and a fireplace, three dining rooms furnished in country style, according to the owners creative personal taste. It is the ideal place where you can spend magic and unforgettable moments and enjoy old Tuscan recipes and famous red wines of this fertile and friendly region.
