Overview
Farmhouse -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Pescia, Province of Pistoia, Tuscany
With a beautiful location set below the small, medieval hill village of Sorana, this is a traditional stone farmhouse retaining all the usual beautiful Tuscan features of cotto floors, chestnut beams and an open fireplace.

Outside there are private olive groves for the children to play in, a terrace for al fresco dining, BBQ for outdoor cooks and a pool for cooling off in the glorious summer days - all with spectacular views of the Pescia valley. Two of the best restaurants in the area are just down the road or there is further fine dining in and around the local town of Pescia, less than 15 minutes drive away

Open all year around, this house offers a quiet retreat from which to explore the surrounding hills on foot to local villages such as Vellano, Castelveccio, Fibialla or Medicina.

WOW!.... this place is absolutely stunning. The views, the cottage and the local area are all fantastic. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortably accommodated our family of five. It was very relaxing - the pool, sitting out on the terrace with the odd passing bell of the goat, rustling in the bushes and fireflies adding to the beauty...

I have lived in the village of Sorana for 15 years and last night I was invited down for supper. I was impressed by the standard of the house. But what impressed me most were the stunning views. Of course almost everywhere I. Tuscany has a stunning view, but what makes this one so special is that it is right...

Just a quick note to let you know how much we all enjoyed staying at Casa della. If I close my eyes I can still see the beautiful hills and hear the chirp of the Cicadas (& rustling of wild pigs in the undergrowth). I'd also like you to pass on a big thank you to Chris, Sue and the...

Many thanks for your review - you are right, the house can be an inspiring place at times! We couldn't run the rental without our support crew in Italy, so thanks for acknowledging them also

About the neighborhood
Sorana is situated along the valley north of Pescia known as Dieci Castella – part of the Province of Pistoia in Northern Tuscany. The valley takes its name from the 10 villages that line the valley hills and hilltops, each of which has a church with bell tower. During medieval and in more recent periods of upheaval like the second world war the towers acted as prime lookout posts for defence of the area

There are some beautiful places to visit in the Pescia valley and surrounding area in Northern Tuscany and Casa della Vista is the ideal location to use as a base from which to venture out or to relax and enjoy the fabulous views and perfect weather in summer
Getting around
Local villages such as Vellano, Fibialla, Castlevecchio, Aramo, San Quirico, Collodi and Medicina can all be explored on foot from the old mule tracks that run from right outside the front door of the house or the historic walled city of Lucca is only a 30 minute drive. Florence is about an hour and a half’s drive, if you want to risk the hairy Italian city traffic or the rail link from Pescia is regular and reliable and will allow you to take in the scenery across the rolling north Tuscan hills
