From the A1 motorway (Autosole), coming both from the south (i.e. from Florence, Roma, Pisa...) or
from the north (i.e. Milano, Bologna, etc.) exit at Barberino di Mugello.
Follow the signs for San Piero a Sieve-Borgo San Lorenzo. After La
Torre (on your left there is a very conspicuous for the "Teatro
dei Medici" restaurant) you will find the crossroads for Scarperia
and the sign to Luco
di Mugello". Turn right and again right and follow the signs
for Luco di Mugello, which is some 4 km away. At Luco, the road continues
to the right for Borgo San Lorenzo instead take to the left to the
village centre (there is a sign pointing to Grezzano).
Some 100 metres further, at the next crossroads there are signs to
San Giorgio and to us, "AGRITURISMO SANVITALE".
Proceed this way, and only leave the road when you see our sign, after
about 2.5 km half of which are asphalt road, and the rest are dirt
road. You will find yourselves landing in our very yard!
From Florence you can also reach Mugello taking one of two main roads,
with one panoramic alterative route. In both cases, lets assume
Piazza della Libertà in Florence as a starting point. Piazza
della Libertà is a main crossroads on the ring boulevards (viali
di circonvallazione). From here, you may:
1) follow the via Bolognese (s.s. 65) passing through Pratolino, Vaglia
and San Piero a Sieve. From San Piero proceed as indicated above.
2) if you choose the via Faentina (s.s. 302) instead you will pass
Pian di Mugnone, Le Caldine, LOlmo, Polcanto and Borgo San Lorenzo.
From here, follow the signs Luco di Mugello which is 7 km away. From
Luco continue as indicated above.
3) again from Piazza della Libertà, you can follow the signs
to Fiesole (which is well worth a visit), continue along the scenic
route and join the via Faentina (s.s. 302) at LOlmo. From here
the route will be the same as detailed in the previous entry.
For those who wish to visit Florence without getting caught in the
traffic, Borgo San Lorenzo (7 km away from Agriturismo Sanvitale)
has a train station along the Faentina railway line, with trains connecting
the Mugello valley with the two stations S.M. Novella and Campo di
Marte in Florence.
There is also a frequent bus service from Borgo San Lorenzo to the
centre of Florence (approximately one hours drive). We can provide
Our farming duties permitting, we shall be pleased to drive you to
and from the station at Borgo San Lorenzo.
