Località La Noce, 22, Caiano 50060 Londa (Florence)
Among the hills north-east of Florence, in the middle of three valleys - the Val di Sieve, with olive groves and vineyards of the Chianti Rufina; the Mugello, with its Bilancino lake; the Casentino, dotted with ancient towers and castles and dotted with towns still little beaten by mass tourism - the farm has a swimming pool and 3 apartments. The proximity to sites of artistic interest, to the cellars of Chianti Rufina, to the two main outlets in central Italy, to the trial area of Rincine with the most beautiful downhill route in the region, to the adventure parks and the national park of Casentino and, needless to say, in Florence, will allow you to spend an unforgettable holiday.
The 3 guest apartments are made from an old barn; the oldest stones set in the main walls come from an ancient medieval tower. The furniture is in Tuscan style with pure wool mattresses made by hand and sheets woven on the loom and embroidered by hand.

La Noce is a delightful place. The apartment we stayed in, Il Pastore, was very charming - rustic yet totally comfortable. The views from the bedroom windows were incredible. We had a home cooked meal one night which was nice. I would advise other guests to be sure to clarify carefully the prices of the meal as we found this to be somewhat unclear.
In summary though, this place is definitely worth a stay.
After a small misunderstanding when booking another agriturismo we experienced spontaneous Italian hospitality with Francesca and her family, which turned out to be an absolute stroke of luck. Due to the wonderful location on the mountain, the high temperatures of the Arno and Sieve valleys could be endured very well, especially as there was always a breeze blowing here. Thank you for the nice stay and the great food!

Hi, I am Francesca and I am 61 years old.

I have been doing this job for 14 years with my family.
We take care of: we cook for the guests, we take care of the crops, we run the courses.
It was a desire to to pursue a passion which led me to run an agriturismo.
Our guests' favourite thing about La Noce di Francesca is the food.
