Carmignano is a small village with really charming surroundings, twenty kilometres north-west of the city of Florence.
It's located in the heart of Tuscany, on the edge of a green hill with cypresses, olive trees and vineyards - a typical Tuscan landscape!
This area is famous for its excellent DOC wines, and there are also a lot of culturally interesting places to be visited: the Medician villa "Ambraâ€ at Poggio a Caiano, the medieval village of Artimino with the Medician villa â€œLa Ferdinandaâ€ and the Archaeological Museum, the Etruscan tombs at Comeana, the Romanesque churches in the Montalbano area, Leonardo da Vinci's house and museum at Vinci, and the park-museum dedicated to Quinto Martini in Seano, his birth place.
In the church of San Michele in Carmignano you will find a beautiful painting called â€œVisitazioneâ€, made by the famous artist Pontormo (1494-1556).
Other places of interest in the area are Prato, Pistoia, Lucca, Montecatini, Pisa and Siena.
You can play tennis and golf or go horse-riding near the house, or you can go trekking in the Montalbano hills.
We are a couple: Rosy is fifty-five years old and Alessandro is sixty-four years old (a retired chemist).
We often travel with a couple of friends.
We are experienced home exchangers and enjoy this way of travelling very much.
