WHERE WE ARE The farmhouse complex was built around an old medieval tower, on a sun drenched location at a height of 400 meters (1300 feet). Il Poeta is located 30 Km from Florence, on the direction to Mugello, on the slopes of Monte Giovi. Only 3 Km away there is a useful railway station, from which Florence is reachable in only thirty minutes.
