The house is an old stone-built farmhouse, surrounded by fields with olives and fruit trees and woodland, in a magical atmosphere, overlooking the lovely village of Pietrabuona. From the next july a new apartment will be at disposal of the guests. It will have an independent entrance, with a kitchen at ground floor, and a bed room with bath at the first floor.
We also have a spare room on the first floor of our own house, with a private bathroom, but without a kitchen. The guests can enjoy the outside part of the house having a rest on the terrace with the view on the valley.
We are 20mins from the town of Pescia, where you can find all the facilities (train/bus station, markets, banks, restaurants, pharmacies etc..)
The local villlage of Pietrabuona is a 10 minute walk by footpath and you can find there a pharmacy, two bars, a restaurant, the post office and a grocery store.
We would be pleased to help you to discover this unusual piece of Tuscany, showing the local traditions. We are close to the most important cities of Tuscany (1h from Florence, Pisa and the sea of Versilia, 45min from Lucca) and in the area you can visit the old medieval villages of Montecarlo, Montecatini Alto and Collodi.
You will have the opportunity to visit an "alternative" Tuscany: a place between hills and mountains, fulll of olive trees, chestnut trees, oaks and acacias. Into this unspoiled landscape are embedded like precious stones ten medieval and fortified villages called "castella" of Svizzera Pesciatina.
We are also available to accompany you in trekking trails in our woods.
