Originally a farmstead, Il Gufo Farmhouse has been stylishly created retaining many original features, including high wooden ceilings, exposed beams, stone walls, brick or tile floors and open fireplaces.
The 16 metre pool, open from May to September, is 100 metres away from the accommodation in order to ensure the peace and quiet around the apartments themselves.
La Stalla is one of the four apartments in the Farmhouse:
(60 m2: Sleeps 4) Dining/sitting room with kitchen, open stone fireplace and armchairs (30 m2) + 1 double bedroom (12 m2) + 1 twin bedroom (9m2) + a bathroom with shower, toilet, bidet, basin, hair dryer. Stone walls, kitchen with oven, four hob stove, refrigerator, freezer, historic stone basin, kettle, toaster. Adjustable heating. Private entrance. Private fenced garden with outdoor furniture (approx. 30 m2).
These rooms were originally the farmhouse stables, mostly used for cattle.
All the apartments are furnished throughout with tasteful antique furniture.
There are two 2-bedroom apartments (one double and one twin) and two 1-bedroom apartments. Each has a shower room and fully equipped kitchen, which contains an electric oven, 4-ring hob, fridge and freezer. Those on the ground floor have their own fenced garden with table and chairs, while the upper floor apartment has its own veranda with table and chairs. All have their own access.
The farmhouse is deep in the mountains in the relatively 'undiscovered' north of Tuscany. While still within easy reach of Florence, Bologna, Lucca and Pisa, the villa is perfectly located for wonderful mountain walks, horse riding and skiing in winter.
Villa il Gufo is 1,8 km away from the centre of San Marcello Pistoiese. The last 1,4 kilometer of road, part dirt and part asphalted, is steep and narrow but in pretty good condition in most parts and it is possible to drive up to it with any kind of car.
A car is recommended, although it is possible to reach Pistoia, Florence and Lucca from the bus station in the centre of San Marcello Pistoiese.
There are several restaurants in San Marcello Pistoiese, 3 banks with ATMs, pubs and bars, supermarkets, internet access, and everything you might need for your holiday.
Local villages are lively throughout the summer, with parties and festivals. Choose which of the distinct seasons to visit in- here we have heavy spring blossom, hot summers, smoky autumns and winter skiing.
For hugely rewarding, though fairly strenuous walks, we recommend a number of routes in the mountains.
