What a great place. Well received by Mark (the Owner) we could not have been made to feel more welcome. La Casa Colonica is brilliant. We went with a large group of family and friends and found the accommodation to a very good standard. More than adequately sized rooms, the space was excellent and we never felt crowded or cramped. The sports room was great and the pool outstanding and well maintained. The outside terrace provides even more space for eating, socialising or just relaxing. As mentioned in a previous review, the views from the house and terrace are outstanding. There are plenty of aminities in the local village approx 1.5 miles away, including a superpermarket and restaurants, we especially liked the family friendly atmosphere in Il Grillo family restaurant. A car is a must but Florence, & Pisa are easy to reach by car or train (from Pistoia). We would also recommend visits to Pistioa market, Lucca and Sienna. This will not be our last visit. You can't fail... more

I almost did not want to write this review and leave this holiday home as a 'best kept secret' for family and friends but it would not be fair to the house itself, its location or its friendly owner and support staff. The house is a gem - a farmhouse converted to a very good standard, with good sized bedrooms and sitting rooms, yet without losing that homely 'nook and cranny' feel. Even a large family will never feel cramped. There is even an ex cow byre with table tennis table. The kitchen is well-equipped with two fridge/freezers and plenty of plates, dishes for large parties. Outside on the terrace are two separate long tables under vine trellises (great for long Italian lunches) and then, on the next level down a large swimming pool and enough recliners to satisfy every member of a large family (and well fenced too, for younger members). With the house set on the side of a valley the views are wonderful, More importantly, the whole atmosphere is one of silence and... more
