It was grand-father Pietro Lastrucci called “di Fiorindo” who built the house at the end of the 19th century on the remains of an abandoned church, at the top of a hill, facing Vinci on the west side. It is a simple and typical country house: on the ground floor the big kitchen with the fire-place, the room to keep wheat and “salami”, the dining-room for very special occasions; on the first floor all the bed-rooms (for grand-parents, parents and four children). There was also the cellar with the big barrels of wine and the olive-oil.

The name of the property is the original name from the area surrounding that was called “Marcello”, the land around the house was and still is all cultivated with olive trees as well as a vineyard on the east side at the bottom of the hill; in front of the house there’s a “barn” to keep working tools, it housed the rabbits, the pigs and on the west side there was the henrun. The house has remained as it was except for the 2 bathrooms on first floor, also the heating of the house is as it used to be: the fire-place in the kitchen and a big wood stove upstairs to heat the bed-rooms. The big “aia”, the space just in front of the house, is still the best spot: from the top of the hill you can enjoy a beautiful view, the same landscape that you can admire in many of Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpieces.More

About the neighbourhood
“La casa di Marcello” is on the top of a hill facing Vinci on the west side, the house stands in a very panoramic position, from the house you can enjoy beautiful views of the tipycal countryside in Tuscany made of olive groves and vineyards. The distance from the house to Vinci is km 2,5 if you walk through the country or km 4 if you follow the road, everybody certainly know Leonardo da Vinci: the artist, scientist, mathematic, writer.. Leonardo was born in Vinci in 1452, his bithplace is just outside the village of Vinci, it has been recently restored and it's worth a visit. From the house you can easily visit all Tuscany, you're near Florence (30km) but in an hour travel you can reach Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia and Siena
