Sun, warm weather, clear sky … it’s time to take a swim in our outdoor pool, surrounded by ancient trees and greenery.

You can relax under a beach umbrella or indulge in a tan while you sleep on a comfortable sun-bed. Swim or rest on one of our inflatables. Take all the time you want to regain the calm you deserve.

The pool is reserved for guests staying at Il Milione.

Completely immersed in peace and quiet, you can prove yourself by playing a match or simply dribbling, surrounded by a scenic natural landscape. Imagine the joy of playing tennis breathing the pure air of the Tuscan hills.

What about a game with the company of the sweet chirping of birds and cicadas? If you love team sports, at Il Milione you will have at your disposal an entire soccer field with synthetic grass to play your matches.

Il Milione’s private park covers 50 hectares on one of the hills of the Florentine Chianti area. The most natural and fascinating way to get to know our estate is taking long walks or choosing between different paths and trekking routes. During your hikes, probably you will be able to see small wild animals such as squirrels, fallow deer, hares and hedgehogs. The fruit trees of figs, walnuts, cherries or apricots will enrich your walks of tasty snacks.

Biking is the way to go to to discover our most picturesque corners and the sights of our farm. The routes, easy to follow, will allow you to deeply breathe nature’s aromas, without missing any detail of the splendid view of Florence and the surrounding hills. You can stop and admire the various pieces of art scattered inside the estate, signed by artists who came to Florence to study and granted to the original owner in exchange for hospitality.

Wine is one of our typical and excellent product. It’s known, appreciated and exported all over the world. When we talk about Tuscan wine, we immediately link to the Chianti area, one of the most renowned land for the great winemaking tradition and the quality of the wines.

Staying at Il Milione gives you the opportunity to organize small tasting tours to the various farms and companies located in the provinces of Florence, Siena and Arezzo. Or if you prefer you can taste our wines here with all your comfort, or you can buy one or two bottles as a nice souvenir.
