Here in the birthplace of the great Genius Leonardo Da Vinci, you can find this Tuscan stone farmhouse surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, the  origins of which date right back to the 16th century.

Completely restored but still in keeping with the original features, the farmhouse is situated on the Montalbano hills, a starting point for those of whom  want to visit Florence, and all the other beautiful cities of art that Tuscany is famous for, and then return to the peace and quiet of the countryside.

The main building and the barn, both of historical interest,  dominate the hillside with a magnificent, panoramic view over the valley and surrounding rooftops, with San Miniato and the hills of Pisa and Pistoia in the distance.  Around  8 hectares of land surround the farmhouse, cultivated with olive groves, fields and woodland.  

 

 

The farmhouse boasts two impressive apartments, Leonardo and Gioconda, both with  exclusive, independent access, and a new swimming pool that will be ready by the summer for the guests staying in the  apartments to enjoy.

  

Both apartments have ample, private outdoor space equipped with everything  required for making the most of the sun and relaxing in the complete privacy  and peace and quiet  of the  olive groves.

All of the surrounding area is of historical interest and a visit (free entrance) to the house where Leonardo was born is a “must” as is a visit to the Leonardo museum in Vinci.

  

Golf lovers too can indulge in their passion, as a well looked after 9 hole  golf course is only 5kms away.

At a stones  throw from the farmhouse there’s an old mill built across two streams where its owner happily awaits the guests with a welcome drink, and a brief tour of the complex, taking them back in time by  showing  them the original, distinguishing features that are rich in Tuscan history

Come to Vinci and live Leonardo

If you are looking for something other than cities of art, then we can recommend places of interest around and about Vinci. For example, a trip to the Fattoria di Capezzana with its wonderful wine cellars or the recently opened  Cantina Antinori (wine cellars) or visit Artimino where the Villa dei Cento Camini can be admired.

Not forgetting a trip to the Capella di Carmignano where the beautiful artwork, L’Annunciazione by Pontormo can be admired.

 

If you dream of wandering through the green Tuscan hills or losing yourself in ancient, medieval  villages, maybe even  sipping a glass or two of Chianti, Vinci is the place for you!

Whatever you wish for from a holiday, Vinci awaits you longing to be discovered. We are proud of our homeland, our history and our traditions and can’t wait to share them with you.
