  • The hamlet of I Rossi is a rustic stone complex with a large inner courtyard and gardens, consisting of apartments for up to 6 people where silence and above all privacy reign.
  • La Stecca, consisting of only two-room apartments for 2/3 people has the advantage of being opposite the pool.
  • Le Pergole is an old farmhouse perched on the highest hillock of the estate with breathtaking views of Florence to the horizon of the hill of Fiesole. L’Osteria del Milione Restaurant is also located here.
