This place is pretty awesome. Now I have to point out this is a working family farm and there are some farm interactions because of that. I guess you either love it or hate it because of that. We loved it. Elisa is a great host and will meet all of your needs. Pool is nice and the showers are amazing! Furniture was comfy and the beds were nice. For us it actually became more relaxing as we drove up to the house each day. There are two very good restaurants within a mile of the home. Pescia is close enough to meet any need you may have (gelato, duh!) It's a very casual low key place. If you are looking for "luxury" you should probably stay in one of the bigger cities. If you want to experience the local life stay here. It is quiet, amazing views, it is "Tuscany".
We really loved this place. But you should know that it is about 20 minutes from a grocery store, up a dirt road for the last mile or so.... on which we encountered about 10 wild boar as we drove home one night.
The house itself is authentic Tuscan, updated with a nice sitting area with a TV. Bedrooms were small but nice, kitchen adequate. Most important though was the view and the outside sitting areas. Absolutely fantastic. Lots of fruit trees – figs were ripe when we were there. The place is located in one of the foothill towns of the Appenine’s There are five sister cities nearby, each of them hill towns with great character. We went in September and there were almost no tourists. There are a few good restaurants nearby...The best one was a 10 minute walk into a small town of Castelvecchio. There are others about a15 minute drive away
There’s a property manager who lives in the next town and is very helpful, named Paul. I would highly recommend this place if you don’t mind being out in the boonies. For us that was the best part!
