Overview

About the property

Single-family farmhouse immersed between the olive trees, located in a quiet area, with a view over the medieval village of Serravalle, on the Montecantini hill and the Padule di Fucecchio (one of the most interesting wetlands). It is south-exposed with a terraced area where, under the shade of a mulberry tree you can nicely eat or dine al-fresco. It is fresh inside even in the summer months since it has a correct orientation and adequate windows. It is an enclosed area of approximately 800 m², with a garden suitable for children or pets. The guests will be the only ones occupying the house and will be able to fully enjoy their holiday. From Serravalle you can easily reach famous art places like Florence, Pistoia, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Geminiano, Arezzo and many other places and the Chianti areas for a nice meditation with the famous Brunello. The interior of the house is carefully furnished and functional: The bedrooms are three: two with double beds, one with two single beds that can be joined, another long bed located in a room with sun deck and the last one in the hallway of the first floor. In total, there are six + two sleeping accommodations. In the centre of the living room, a large chimney creates an incredible environment. Prices are all-inclusive and consist of gas and electric usage, Wi-Fi, bath and bedroom linen, initial and final cleaning, and reception. No other expense will be added; only in the winter months, we ask for a small contribute for the house heating. You will be welcomed guests.

About Amos square

My family lives at Monza where my wife and I work, as our two children. I am from Monza while my wife is Tuscan from Pistoia. We met in 1967 at Marinella di Sarzana (Liguria) and got married the next year at Siena, and from then we have lived in Monza. At Serravalle, we only go when there are no guests.

Amos square purchased this chateau / country house in 1992

Why Amos square chose Pistoia Area

The house is a small farmhouse converted into an accommodation for our family holidays. The works done through time and the furnishings have been made to have everything that is needed to spend a serene, pleasing, and comfortable holiday. Our family has modified and the house is no longer visited like it was. That is why we thought to put it for rent for anyone that loves nature, tranquillity and accessibility to easily reach the Tuscan places of art.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The location of our house is ideal to reach the Tuscan art places, as well to relax in the quiet olive tree.

Notes:
The house, located on the cultivated hill with olive trees in front the medieval village of Serravalle at guest disposal, the closest buildings are a few hundred metres. From the house, you can go to the paths for trekking between the forests of oaks, acacia, olive trees, vineyards and cultivated fields with the opportunity to watch huppes, buzzards, small birds that will accompany you with their songs, porcupines, roe deer, fox, and wild boar families completely inoffensive. For those that love nature, a holiday at the farmhouse guarantees relaxation and joy. In addition, in the evening outside you can play some matches with the original iron petanque. In the area, you can meet and taste some restaurants or trattoria where typical Tuscan dishes are served. One that I recommend for its quality is at the Serravalle Bridge. Besides, in the centre of Pistoia you will find many that are fun and animated. If you decide to be our guest, we welcome you now and wish you a great holiday!

We spent two weeks in this house. Location is great, many nice things to do in the area both culturally and for our three children below 10 years old.

House is large, has all the necessities and is great to stay in.

We really enjoyed staying in this house and definitely consider to come back

Ein Haus zum Wohlfühlen hoch über dem Tal in traumhafter Umgebung!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in diesem schönen, traditionellen Haus, in dem Familiengeschichte lebendig scheint, sehr genossen. Der herzliche Empfang von Amos und Iliana - trotz unserer staubedingten Verspätung - war bereits ein guter Start. DANKE!

Wir haben viele Orte der näheren und weiteren Umgebung erkundet und sind immer wieder gerne in "unser Haus" zurückgekehrt, wo wir uns gut erholen und auch sehr gut schlafen konnten. Die wunderbare Aussicht aus den gemütlichen Zimmern hat uns immer wieder neu staunen lassen. Dazu die Düfte der Rosmarinbüsche, der Orangen- und Zitronenblüten, der vielen Wiesenblumen, abends das Kaminfeuer mit Olivernholz.

Alles zusammen: Ein toskanischer Traum! Wir möchten gern wiederkommen.

Toskana im Winter

  • 5 of 5

Die Toskana im Winter hat ihren eignen Reiz. Von diesem Haus ist man ebenso schnell am Meer wie in Florenz oder Pisa, noch näher liegt Lucca. Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet und gut ausgerüstet. Die Beschreibung im Inserat sind informativ und zutreffend. Zwar sind die Heizkosten nicht zu unterschätzen, dafür ist der Mietpreis im Winter in einem vernüftigen Rahmen. Sehr liebenswürdig sind die Vermieter, wir fühlten uns rundum wohl in diesem Haus.

Wie immer wundervoll

  • 5 of 5

Es war wieder ein wundervoller Urlaub.

Wir haben das traumhafte Haus mit seinen liebevoll eingerichteten Zimmern und der großen Terasse mit super Aussicht genossen.

Alles ist perfekt sauber, die Betten bezogen, absolut empfehlenswert.

Der Kontakt ist unkompliziert, die Übergabe freundlich und einfach, man denkt man ist "zuhause bei Freunden"

Dieses Haus ist ein absoluter Geheimtipp, wir kommen garantiert wieder!

beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this beautiful and spacious house, which is very tastefully furnished and decorated and very well maintained. We enjoyed the beautiful sight from the garden on the medieval little town of Serravalle and the valley. The house is situated among olive orchards in a very quiet place. In the surroundings you can reach beautiful historical towns like Pistoia and Pisa. The owner gave us very useful tips about places to see and there are lots of leaflets and maps about the local area available in the house. The communication with the owner was very pleasant. We highly recommend this house.

Traumurlaub in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen traumhaften Urlaub in Serravalle verbracht!

Das Haus ist noch schöner als auf den Bildern zu sehen. Alles war absolut sauber, die Betten schön bezogen und ausreichend Handtücher vorhanden (Alles incl.!).

Die Aussicht vom Haus aus ist atemberaubend, der Garten mit duftenden Kräutern bepflanzt. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, alles funktioniert tadellos und die Bäder sind sauber und schön.

Nach Florenz braucht man gute 30min. an den Strand in Viareggio 40min.

Alles in allem ein Toskana-Urlaub wie aus dem Bilderbuch, zu einem unglaublichen Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.

Fünf Sterne sind eigentlich zuwenig!

The house is located on the hill to the north of the Serravalle village, cultivated primary with olive trees. Besides being an optimal departure point to visit the most important Tuscan cities of art, it is also suitable for trek and mountain bike. A particular attractiveness is represented by the Caves of Carrara where the marble is extracted which carries its name. Michelangelo went to the Caves of Carrara to search for the most suitable blocks to sculpt his famous art works renowned all over the world. Another interesting activity is represented by the search of the trattoria and typical restaurants that you can find around Serravalle or Pistola, Montecatini, Altopascio and Lucca
