About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay2 nights
The self-contained apartment is set within the converted ground floor of our 400 year old olive farm. The opportunity to enjoy a lovely rural retreat with aspects of woodland, olive grove or for the artist in you (easel available) vistas of other hillside villages. A very popular area for cyclists yet within 15-25 minutes walk to the local hilltop village and also 3 wonderful local restaurants/bars.
The farm is accessed by electric gates (a key fob provided following check-in) to offer more secure parking. Being situated in the hills we do have steps down from the parking area and on down to the apartment so we appreciate this may not be suitable for everyone. We are of course happy to help with luggage or shopping when we are on site.
Touring through Italy? We are situated around 40 minutes by car from Lucca an hour from Pisa, Florence, the coast at Viareggio and for skiing in Abetone about 80 scenic minutes. The local town of Pescia is around 20 minutes by car, limited bus service is also available, and gives access to the train for links all over Italy. Pescia has two weekly markets and a great host of bars, coffee shops, restaurants and gelaterias.
Our guests enjoy the use of their own private sun terrace with loungers. They are also more than welcome to walk within the olive groves and when in season to take advantage of any available fresh fruits and herbs within the gardens.

Fabulous apartment, perfect location, fantastic hosts. You’ll want to return next year!
We spent the last four days of our holiday here and were delighted to discover a real gem. Kathy and Paul made us so welcome and supplied a really generous hamper which meant we could have a long lazy breakfast on our first morning, sitting on the wonderful private terrace looking at the mountains and listening to birdsong. Heaven.
The apartment is beautifully finished with quality furnishings (the most comfortable bed we had in Italy!), excellent kitchen equipment and a really good shower in the stylish bathroom. Outside were two very comfortable loungers, table and chairs, bbq, and herbs and salad to pick. They’ve really thought of everything here!
The olive trees were fantastic and the woodland with its stream was a good place to explore (listen out for the wild boar snuffling around at night on the other side of the fence!). Everything is so well kept.
Kathy and Paul were really friendly and on hand should we have needed anything but they took great care to ensure we had our own space and privacy. Having moved here a few years ago they were very knowledgable about attractions, locally and further afield, and kindly made a reservation for us at an excellent local restaurant.
The local town has two very good supermarkets and all the necessary shops that you’d need. We enjoyed Lucca, about 40 mins drive away, with its many traffic free squares and side streets and interesting shops and restaurants. A walk or cycle round the amazing ramparts is a must.
A great base to explore this part of Tuscany, and equally easy to just stop, unwind and read whilst stretched out in the sunshine.
Thank you Kathy and Paul - we’ll definitely see you again next year.

Beautiful and quiet spot in scenic setting with the most amazing hosts
The apartment is cosy and comfortable for two people, located on an olive farm, just 15 minutes out of Pescia. It offers you everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Paul and Kathy are the best hosts one can have, willing to go the extra mile for their guests. We will definitely come back!
