Description

Casa Verragoli Farm Holiday is a property of IL FORTETO Agricultural Cooperative. In fact, Il Forteto has restored and adapted for the turistic accommodation an old farm house and his hay loft, creating five seperate apartments and a large, separate common room in the hay loft. The building takes his name from the position, where it's situated. At the altitude of 339 mt. above the sea level, offers a great view over the valley. Near the house you can find a little artifical lake for the watering of cows and horses on the pastures. The guest of our agriturismn have the possibility to alternate days of complete relax with days of horsetrekking, sightseeing in the Mugellovalley or in the near city of Florence. The right place for who likes long walks throught the country-side and living in direct contact with the nature. The co-operative Il Forteto was founded in 1977 from a eterigenic group of young students, operators and teachers. With a complete change of life, they search to built up a living together made by real equality, giving the possibility to the ability of every person to come up and to come true. The co-operative made up a deserted farm of ca. 500 ha situated in the county areas of Vicchio and Dicomano in the Mugello, land of origin from the Medici-family, at one time wood and wild reserve of the Florence-town. The members of the co-operative, from the beginning, have worked on the trasformation of sheep and cow milk. During the first years the worked milk was limited, later, with the growing of business and proprofessionalism, the production of cheese became the principal work of the co-operative. Together with the cheese production exist other agricultural activities, like cultivation of orchard (apple) and the production of hay and grain for the breeding of cattle and horses. The breeds are tipical tuscany. For the cattle the Chianina, 240 animals between cows and calfs, famous for the steack “alla fiorentina”; for the horse the Maremmano, with production of live animals used for horse trekking or horse shows. The Casa Verragoli farmhouse also carries out activities like Didactic Farm, with courses and workshops dealing with flour, cheese and oil. Recipients of these workshops are schoolchildren, university students, groups and families (minimum number of participants 8) It is also possible to adapt guided tours and didactic workshops, if the seasonality of the various productions of the company allows, to other requests depending on the needs of participants
