We are a genuine Florence born couple and it is in this city that we spent most of our lives before deciding to move to the country to rediscover the pleasure of the slow passing of time. We were looking for a quiet, refreshing place, yet not too far from Florence. This became reality in 1999.
We have been passionately dedicated to the renovation and furnishing of this country house, combining personal taste and tradition.
In Porcigliano we enjoy the life made off simple and natural things: we take care of the garden, the vegetable garden and our olive trees, we make jams and preserves for friends, and we actively contribute to the life of our community.
Practical information to get to Porcigliano
From the motorway A1 (Milano-Firenze) take the exit Barberino del Mugello and follow the indications to Borgo San Lorenzo. Drive on the side of a large lake until the roundabout and take the second exit towards Cardetole (SP97 Faentina). Drive through the underpass and keep going for 4km then take right towards Florence (SS302). Keep going until Polcanto village, enter in the village, at the Bar turn right and keep driving for 1,4km and take right again when you see B&B Porcigliano sign.
From Pisa Airport and Florence Airport we recommend to take the A1 motorway towards Bologna-Milano and exit at Barberino di Mugello, avoiding crossing the city of Florence.
