Things to Do


Guests have at their disposal a large swimming pool set in the green of the vineyard with a view of the hills from which the shapes of the medieval castle of Larciano, and the Medici villa of Montevettolini.
Less than two kilometers away from our place you will find the hills of the Montalbano and the nature reserve called Il Padule di Fucecchio, where birdwatching tours, nature hikes and cycling are available.
We are also part of an association called the “Strada dell’olio e del vino del Montalbano, le colline di Leonardo” which indicates the major and most characteristic places in the area such as farms and wine cellars that you can visit.
Thermals spas, golf course and shooting clubs are also in the area.

The position in which Podere Galilea is situated makes it ideal for reaching the major cities of art in the area, like Florence, Lucca, Pistoia, Pisa, San Gimignano, and Vinci and for getting to, quickly, the Versilia coastline and the Pistoia mountains. Collodi, Pinocchio’s town, is 21 kilometers away and the surrounding hills have many medieval castles, romanesque churches and Medici villas (Artimino, Poggio a Caiano, Quarrata, Montevettolini, Cerreto Guidi).

Furthermore, there are plenty of Etruscan remains to see (Artimino and Comeana). The farm is situated near the ancient via Francigena, which is the present-day via Francesca, the historical jubilar road, for pilgrims going towards Rome; there are many testimonies of these pilgrimages.
