Beautiful independent farmhouse that has been carefully and tastefully restored. It is set in the green hills of the Mugello, on the outskirts of the small village of Grezzano (food shop). Peaceful position. Extensive views over the countryside. Ideal location for walks, mountain bike and horse-back rides in the woods which surround the property. ................................................................

I stayed at the villa for a week in June 2018. We were a group of 12 travelling without children. The villa is in an idyllic location, overlooking the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. There are multiple outdoor seating areas large enough to accommodate 12 + people so you can take in the view and generally enjoy outside living. There is a swimming pool with a diving board, table football, jacuzzi, and a small indoor sauna. The inside of the villa is spread over 3 levels with stone steps throughout (would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems). Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor (both with ensuites). There are living areas on the ground and 1st floors with tables to accommodate large groups. The furniture/interior is not luxurious but perfectly adequate and comfortable. The villa is well situated to explore Tuscany, with Borgo San Lorenzo being 40mins to Florence by train. Roberto (owner) lives in the next villa along, and he pops along early each morning to clean the pool and water the garden. Roberto was kind enough to make recommendations about things to do, and gave us 2 bottles of his homemade wine to try and a giant tiramisu. Roberto speaks good English.
As the advert states, the gas/electric/tourist tax/cleaning fee is in addition to the hire costs. The total for these extras for our group was 525 euros (mostly made up of gas and electric costs). This was more than i was expecting to pay, but between 12 adults wasn't too painful. Despite this, I would recommend the villa wholeheartedly because it is idyllic, and worth the money. If you can, ask Roberto about booking the chefs Patrizia and Stefano to come and demonstrate how to make pasta. It was a wonderful evening- they taught us about italian cooking and then served us a 3 course meal whilst we sat in the garden.
I would definitely return to Belvedere given the opportunity.
Tolle Aussicht, schöner Pool, Haus mit Abstrichen
Wir hatten als Gruppe von 9 Erwachsenen und 7 Kindern eine schöne Zeit in der Toskana. Vor allem der gepflegte Pool hatte es den Kindern angetan, den Erwachsenen eher die Aussicht. Leider war es in der oberen Etage sehr warm und durch eine hohe Anzahl an Mücken das Lüften (trotz z.T. Fliegengittern) nicht einfach... Der Vermieter ist super nett, allerdings kommt eine saftige Nebenkosten-Rechnung zu dem Mietpreis dazu (bei uns knapp 700 € insg.). Das Haus war auch nicht tip top gepflegt, Elektrik, Gasherd und andere Kleinigkeiten sind hier zu nennen, die Bäder sind allerdings alle neu und schön.
Vi var tre familier som tilbragte en uke i juli på denne fantastiske plassen. Flott bassengområde for både store og små, og stort flott hus med gode fasiliteter. Ligger for seg selv i vakre omgivelser, og med gode lokale restauranter i ca 1km avstand. Hyggelig, hjelpsom og imøtekommende husvert som bor like i nærheten. Takk for oss!
