Medici Villa of Trebbio, Mugello

This Medici villa is located in the nearbies of Florence, in the Mugello region, a wonderful corner of quiet tuscan countryside.
Villa del Trebbio is really ancient, but in 1428 Cosimo de’ Medici completely renovated and enlarged it; the architect is Michelozzo (the same of Cafaggiolo and Palazzo Medici).
This villa was surrounded by forests and agricultural estate, and even if it looks like a fortified castle, it was a place of pleasure and rest for the Medici family. Today the castle is surrounded by a beautiful cypress wood with more than one century old trees.
Unfortunately today this villa is private, and visits can be booked just in some special occasions.

Hi, I´m from Stockholm Sweden and have been outside Il Trebbio several times, but have never succeded to come in and see the "famous" historic loggia. I wish sometimes, perhaps in May this year I will figure out how to get permission to see it.

Nice blog, I have signed up as a follower now.
