Lavana is located at an altitude of 577 meters and with just a 3 hour walk, one can arrive at 1500 meters, passing by the forests of chestnut and acacia that surround the house, to those of pine and beech, ending in the grasslands at the top of the mountain, in an uncontaminated nature where antique civilazations such as those of the Celts and the Etruscans walked in the distant past and whose presence is witnessed by several archeological finds conserved in the farmhouse.
This is a small family run business whose owners will be able to provide every kind of information about the surrounding area, the forests, plants and animals found within and about the historic farmhouse which has been restructured with simplicity and respect for tradition.
The farmhouse is about 150 square meters in size and consists of a house in stone of antique origin cited by, among others, Dante Alghieri, with 3 bedrooms each with private baths, a fully equipped kitchen, an ample livingroom where one can choose to sit by the fireplace or watch a bit of satellite tv, and a a reading/music room which provides a relaxing and comfortable sofa bed.
In the backyard there is a barbeque where one can cook under a canopy of kiwi plants and relax in the splendid garden; there is also a pool, an alternative to the perhaps even more appealing dips in the waterfall of the Riesco river that runs next to the house.
Lavana is the ideal spot for one who wants to grant himself a period of absolute relax, staying far from the traffic, noise and smog of the cities but who also wants to be able to visit the nearby sites of great interest for turists such as Florence (Firenze) and the many shopping opportunities provided by the famous brand outlet stores in the area.
A place where the absolute silence is broken only by the sounds of nature, but at the same time easily reached as it is situated only a few kilometers from the village center of Reggello which is just 10 kilometers from both the "Incisa" toll gate of the freeway and the Figline Valdarno train station by which it is possible to reach Florence, Arezzo and Rome.
