This stunning Tuscan farmhouse with an extraordinary income potential is now available for sale.
Based in the peaceful town of Dicomano in Florence, this guest house business is surrounded by beautiful scenery and the mountains of Tuscany. Visitors from around the world come to this area to enjoy the spectacular views and this farmhouse building is perfectly positioned to capture all of that. Although the business is in a private and secluded location, the nearest village is 10 minutes away, a train station is 12 minutes away and Tuscan towns are easy to drive to.
The building is over 500 years old and has been running as a successful holiday guest house for 18 years. Over these years the business has earned an excellent reputation, with many 5 star online reviews and repeat referral clients every year. There are very few holiday guest houses or bed and breakfast operations that can match this business, so there is no direct competition to this unique opportunity.

- 4 large living rooms
- 4 bedrooms

An appealing lifestyle change is on offer as this business comes with a residential property which could be utilised by the next owner. There is a private owners apartment, which is currently being kept separate from the main guest house.
The premises has been kept in excellent condition throughout the years. It has recently been restored with modern plumbing, electrics and septic systems. All of this means that the next owner will be able to take over a business that is fully set up and running efficiently.
