This is a lovely apartment in rustic Tuscan style in a beautiful stone farmhouse which is divided into two completely independent apartments, each with its own private outdoor space.
It is set on two floors (ground floor kitchen with living room, first floor the master bedroom, bedroom with bunk beds, bathroom with shower), has the privilege of delicious loggia in front of the entrance with table and chairs for relaxing and dining outdoors during the summer.
The farmhouse is completely renovated while preserving some elements typical of the old architecture of the Tuscan countryside (ceilings with wooden beams, terracotta tiles, stone facade ...) that refers to the atmospheres of other times and makes the general atmosphere warm and welcoming. The apartment is furnished and decorated with care and well-equipped to make your stay convenient and comfortable.
On the ground floor of the farmhouse there is a room used as laundry room (shared with the other apartment), a small 'museum' of agricultural tools (recovered during the renovations) where we also organized our 'tourist office' with maps , books, lists of events to date, recommended restaurants, etc.. We also organize tastings of products from our farm (olive oil, vegetables, wines and delicatessen).
The house is an excellent starting point to visit all the most beautiful cities of Tuscany (from the nearby Lucca, Pisa, Pistoia and Florence to Siena, Arezzo and the whole coast in a day trip), but also to learn about pretty villages medieval less known but worth seeing: Collodi (3 km away) home of Pinocchio, Monte Carlo (suggestive walk about 4 km from our house to reach it, beautiful forests, vineyards and olive groves), Vinci, Barga, Volterra, and Vellano and the ten castles in the mountains above Pescia. Pescia same, 4 km away, is a beautiful medieval town, where all the facilities are located.
Nous étions un groupe de 5 personnes et nous avons utilisé I Girasoli comme une base pour faire des excursions à la journée dans toute la Toscane et c'était parfait. La maison est joliment décorée, bien chauffées et extrêmement propre et spacieuse. Les vues sont magnifiques sur la campagne voisine. Comme il est un peu en dehors de la ville, une voiture est indispensable. Je recommande vivement cette propriété, soit comme un point de départ idéal pour visiter Florence, Pise, Sienne ou Lucca ou simplement comme un endroit pour se détendre et profiter de la beauté locale.
A bit hard to find in the stormy evening but as soon as we arrived, welcomed by our guests, we discovered a wonderful place. A very nicely renovated cottage with a large room at the first floor and two nice bedrooms with the bathroom at the second floor, all in a typical Tuscany style.
And from the day after, under a beautiful sun, we spent a fantastic week in Lucca, Pistoa, Firenza and so on.
We enjoyed our stay in the stone house and the rustic feel that came with it. Everything was just perfect: the house, the garden and the surroundings. And the owners, Silvia and Sergio were wonderful, they helped in every way and gave many good suggestions where to go and what to do.Cultural highlights such as Lucca, Pisa and Florence are in reach within 20-40 min by car, not to speak of other smaller nearby beautiful places such as Pescia.Thank you so much, we would return in an instant!
