Flora and fauna
Surrounded by mountains and the Mediterranean, Tuscany has surprisingly diverse nature. In addition to the formed culture landscapes, Tuscany is characterised by dense forests, moors and Mediterranean Macchia. In an area as large as Switzerland, the vegetation alternates between vineyards and cornfields, impenetrable forests and impressive mountains. As well as the famous cypresses, pine, oak and chestnut trees accentuate the landscape.
The typical Mediterranean bush landscape's lush vegetation covers vast areas of land today. Broom, citrus, moorland, strawberries, oleander, thyme and rosemary are only some of the plants that define the image of the Macchia. The aromas and nuances of colour charms plant lovers time and time again.
Pheasants, snakes, bats, red deer, wild boar and wolves can all be found in Tuscany. The wild moorland of the Maremma is especially interesting thanks to its wild cows and horses, cranes and countless species of bird. Tuscany is also a great place to go bird watching. A wide range of beautiful birds can be spotted throughout the region. Birdwatching enthusiasts should head to the mountains and marshlands to see birds such as the tawny owl, herons, ring ouzel and the rare glossy ibis.
The accommodation is located in the municipality of Vicchio in Mugello, on the slopes of the Tuscan Apennines between Florence and Bologna.
Vicchio is a nice town which offers to its visitors many attractions. There are a lot of interesting places to visit, above all Giotto Square, the main town square, where the ancient Palazzo Pretorio is located. In the district of Vespignano Giotto's Birthplace is situated, while in the district of Barbiana there is the Church of S. Andrea a Barbiana. Following the tracks of famous personalities in Vicchio, you find the Museum of Beato Angelico.
Tuscany is known for its fabulous landscapes, amazing artwork and architecture and its incredible charm. Yet there is only one place in Tuscany where all three of these elements combine effortlessly together and give life to a magical, romantic and absolutely one of a kind city: Florence. Getting to this stunning city will take you around 1h drive by car. Florence offered the world a stage for great artistic masters such as Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo. From art exhibitions to musical presentations, events which celebrate wine, culture and good food, history and art, you are sure to find many unforgettable experiences in Florence.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
