Agriturismo Castiglioncello is in the Bisenzio valley on a green slope between Migliana and Usella, a few kilometres from the town of Prato. The surroundings are very peaceful and relaxing. Otherwise it is only 5 km to the nearest town Vaiano where you can shop and dine out.
The farm owner Luca cultivates vegetables, fruits, olive oil and honey amongst other things. All of his fresh produce is included in the menu at the farm's restaurant, where you can taste the delights with a good glass of wine. His specialties are primarily meat on the grill or in the large stone oven. One should be aware that the restaurant is open by appointment, hence the need to pre-book.

The apartment Alloro has an entrance on the first floor and is spread over two floors. The first floor contains the master bedroom with a double bed and TV, a bedroom with 2 single bed, a TV and a bathroom with a shower. A staircase leads to the attic, which is basically an open loft with relatively low ceilings, where you will find a kitchenette (two hotplates) with a small refrigerator and two additional beds. We recommend this apartment for a short stay, as it is difficult otherwise to find a home with so many beds and free arrival and departure.
Room Olivia is on the first floor and contains a double bed. There is a bathroom with a toilet and a shower. There is a private balcony or terrace but you are welcome to use the outdoor table and chairs under the pergola or under the sun by the pool and wherever else you find in the large garden.
