About the neighborhood
We are only a few minutes from the medieval town of Scarperia renowed for it's various folkloristic events, it's fine cuttlery and for the famous Ferrari race track. We are close to the beautiful Lake Bilancino known for it's water sports and near there is a golf course and a small airport. There are plenty of biking trails and horseback riding in the area.
