We stayed here last Sept. and the location is just gorgeous! The room was large with a separate bunk bed for my oldest and room for a baby cot for the little one. It is a very historic location as a former customs house for the two regions in the area, Pistoia and Luccia.
Bubbly Lima river heard outside your window. Outside terrace to eat meals if the weather was nice. Nice paths and trails just past the garden. Small bit of playground equipment and toys for little ones to play with. It was just so nice to stay here!
Simone and his family were so accommodating and welcoming. Actually, the house is located on their family farm. Highlight of the trip was the delicious, hearty, home-cooked Italian food. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all available and all with three courses served with wine or beer and water. Followed afterwards with an expresso or other coffee beverage. They operate as a small, bookable restaurant as well as serving meals to guests. Well worth the trip!
Location is also within an hour's drive of Florence, Pisa, and other small and large cities and towns.
The only thing is to get in and out of the area, you've got to navigate the windy roads up and down through the mountains. Could lead to a bit of motion-sickness for those who are sensitive.
Absolutely serene atmosphere and hospitality was wonderful!
