About Monica Sangberg and Stefano Crivelli
We are a couple, an Italian Architect and a Swedish Painter, living in an antique farmhouse that we have restored. It's a traditional Tuscan farmhouse divided in two units: we live in one of them and rent the other, which is nearby and has it's separate entrance and secluded beautiful garden.
Monica Sangberg and Stefano Crivelli purchased this House in 1984
Why Monica Sangberg and Stefano Crivelli chose Barberino di Mugello
Living in Florence, years ago we fell in love with this house in the Mugello Valley. We decided to buy it and started the restoration made by skilled local craftsmen. It has been a long, passionate and accurate work and now we live here since 12 years.
What makes this House unique
It's a very special spot, magic and quiet surrounded by beautiful nature. Close to Florence and all the Art Cities. The lake, that you can see from the garden and where you can make nice walks is 10 minutes drive from the house.

True immersion in Tuscany
Charming hosts, Monica & Stephano were very helpful in giving us a true Tuscan experience. Very tranquil and relaxing. A short train ride into Fierenza and an easy day trip to the Mediterranean or the mountains. Definitely need a rental car. If you like to cook, as we do, grilled steak and veggies over the open hearth in the kitchen was a Tuscan immersion! Ancient farmhouse beautifully renovated by a sensitive restoration architect and a painter whose delightful work graces some rooms. Rosemary and flowers everywhere! The trellis and wisteria draped loggia is a perfect spot for lunch overlooking the Tuscan hills. Get plenty of wine!
Holly and Mickey, the perfect guests! A lovely couple appreciating their stay, communicating their enthusiasm for our home, for the environment and for Tuscany in such a natural, warm and sharp way. They really got on with the spirit of Tuscany and the magic of our place.
We raise the wine cups and take care of the health!
