The 16 metre pool, has sun all day and a view all over the valley. Open from May to September, it is 100 metres away from the accommodation in order to ensure the peace and quiet around the apartments themselves.

The farmhouse 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 a country road in good condition 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.

For hugely rewarding, though fairly strenuous walks, we recommend a number of routes in the mountains

Bed linen, towels, cutlery and cooking utensils are provided (included in the price).

Originally a farmstead, the four apartments have been stylishly created retaining many original features, including high wooden ceilings, exposed beams, stone walls, brick or tile floors and open fireplaces. All 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.

San Marcello-in-Pistoiese is just one of many delightful hill-top villages that are worth visiting in the region – and it's only a short walk from your apartment.
The nearest town is Pistoia, a small but interesting place that really is worth a visit. Also worthy of note, and equally captivating, are Gavinana and its small museum, Cutigliano, and Popiglio, famed for the Castruccio bridge.
There are plenty of options for pleasant strolls in the surrounding woodland and Tuscan countryside. However, for something a little more challenging, there are some wonderful walks in the mountains.

• The Delights of Lucca: This marvellous walled town, unique in Tuscany for being built on a plain, is medieval in character despite obvious Roman origins. (approx 40km/25-mile drive)
• Renaissance Florence: Florence is a delight to explore and the attractions of Italy’s greatest Renaissance city need little introduction. (approx 70km/45-mile drive)
• Pisa with the Campo dei Miracoli, the Baptistery, the Duomo and the famous Leaning Tower (approx 70km/45-mile drive)
