Agriturismo il Colle is located in Mugello by San Godenzo, approx. 40 km from Florence and a few kilometres from the highest peaks of the Tuscan Apennines. The farm is surrounded by chestnut and oak trees as well as olive groves, and enjoys a wonderful, sunny location.
The hospitable and friendly family who own Il Colle moved here from Fiesole in the middle of the 1990s. The wife cares for the animals, whilst the husband tends the agricultural land and the woods. The couple have restored the whole house themselves, and created three pleasant apartments plus two bedrooms for guest accommodation. Alternatively a group seeking a private pool can rent the whole place.

Very nice place with friendly hosts.
Calm surroundings. 5 stars! Definitely going there again.
Excellent host couple, who doesn't know all the good, they do for their guests.
A fantastic and lovely place, where the only thing who's limping, is the Wifi-connection.
Wonderful stay. Warm welcome by the hosts and in the most beautiful surroundings one can imagen.
We stayed there for 5 days. 2 adults and 3 kids.
The pool-area is bigger than it seems on the pictures. It is large and deep and can handle a lot of people without problems.
A must try is their own restaurant!! We've got a 4-course meal with wine for 25 Euro for the adults and a bit cheaper for the kids. The food was fantastic and even the kids loved it!
There is a lot of hiking routes in the area. We didn't tried it ourselves, but the other guest did recommend it to us.
We can highly recommend this place if you are looking for an authentic stay and close to all of the sights. And the hosts was just amazing and kind.
We were 2 adults and 2 children (1 and 4 years), who stayed 4 nights at Il Colle. We stayed in Pino with lots of space with bedrooms, 2 toilets, a small living room (which we used as a children's room), and a nice kitchen with everything you need, and good knives! Very peaceful, quiet and calm place with the sweetest host family, who were very helpful, and cooked lovely food, especially good pizza's in their stone oven, which was served for everybody, who stayed at the place those days, and at a long table. They don't speak English, but it worked okay anyway. The pool was perfect for children, since there were a bounded area, which weren't very deep. There are goats, a dog and a small playground. There were around 10 km. to Dicomano, where there were various shopping possibilities, as well as cafes, restaurants and delicious ice cream. Since the place is located high up, there were a very comfortable breeze. We might come back.
We found this little oasis in Tuscany coincidentally, and it is one of our best vacations ever. We were received with open arms and a hospitality, which is beyond the usual. The house is located with a panoramic view of the vineyards and mountains, the apartment was perfectly decorated with everything we needed, the swimming pool was lovely and the host couple were the most fantastic people. We will recommend booking dinner at the place, because it is some of the most fantastic food we have ever gotten, authentic Italian country kitchen, made form own ingredients picked in the vegetable garden and from the local butcher, Mirella's cooking does not come better!!! Pizza night on Thursdays, with homemade pizzas from a stone oven, arranged as communal eating with all the guests, is also a must.... WE ARE COMING BACK SOON....
We were welcomed by a fantastically hospitable host couple, who despite communication problems, made sure our stay was a good experience, and they succeeded 100%.
A lovely place with charm, cosiness and good surroundings, which helped making our vacation in Tuscany a lovely experience, which we would gladly repeat another time.
