I Rovai is a farm dating back to the period of construction of Sant’Agata in Arfoli. Tradition has it that the construction of Sant’Agata ad Arfoli is due to the Countess Matilde di Canossa, and that it is the oldest in the Fiesole Church.
According to some researchers the foundation of the church dates back to the period of the Goths and, although the documents concerning it do not mention its origins, its first mention dates 1230. Already a farm in the early 70’s I Rovai is immersed in the greenery of the surrounding oasis, 10 minutes from Vallombrosa, among woods and olive groves, it is the perfect place to relax in the silence of nature, after a day spent in museums, taverns, shops and alleys of the neighboring art cities.
