Our estate

Apartments and farmhouse

For a moment, forget to be a stone’s throw from Florence and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Tuscan countryside: let yourself be captivated by the magical atmosphere of the hills and the city’s skyline.

In the estate park, beside vineyards and olive trees, lemon, cherry, walnut, fig and pomegranate trees grow generously and you can make can make your snacks more tasty if you find around blackberries, wild strawberries and wild mint. Here, you can live in harmony with the nature and it is easy to see families of deer, squirrels and hares during your walks.

The signs of our passion for art is everywhere: semi-hidden sculptures and authentic paintings embellish every corner of the park and give a touch of charm to the furnishings of the apartments. In this historic residence young artists who went to Florence for study were used to be hosted and, in return for hospitality, they enriched the territory, leaving here and there expressions of their talent.

During your stay at Il Milione you will be plenty of time to regenerate. Let yourself be lulled by the enchantment and quiet of a gentle panoramic hill. Between quiet walks and typical local recipes, you will discover the privileges and benefits of staying in an authentic farmhouse, just outside Florence.

  • The farmhouse

La Villa di Poggio Arniano is the oldest part of our estate and has a very intimate atmosphere with a spectacular Florentine landscape view. In the past, it was the residence of the Brandimarte silversmiths, while today la villa hosts nine apartments with a rustic and eclectic taste, respecting the historical value of this ancient structure.

Find out the apartments

Discover the pleasure of staying in a rural Tuscan court: the village “I Rossi” is a small stone complex, consisting of nine apartments, where silence and privacy are ensured. You will love the terracotta floors, the typical ceilings with exposed wooden beams and the infinite details and antique furnishings such as carved fireplaces and pianos of the last century.
In the common areas, among pergolas and fountains, you can smell the real aromas of the Tuscan countryside, including wild fennel, thyme, rosemary and chives.

In the common garden, you will find spaces for sunbathing and admire the view and large braziers where you can spend convivial evenings cooking local products.

This is the right place to admire the breathtaking view of Florence and beyond, up to the horizon of the Fiesole hill.

“Le Pergole” complex is an old farmhouse perched on the highest hillock of the estate. The three apartments are located on the top floor right above the Osteria del Milione, the panoramic restaurant with external management where you can have lunch or dinner by booking in advance.

Find out the apartments

The apartments in the farmhouse are distributed between two structures, both with a unique and unmistakable character. The modern architecture of the “Le Stagioni” complex offers the experience of a perfect fusion between nature and design. Instead, in the “Fattoria” you will have an authentic taste of the typical Tuscan countryside landscape with small private outdoor spaces and parking.
All surrounded by Mediterranean trees, the apartments of the farmhouse are designed to give you the experience of the most generous nature, two steps away from the central pool.
