5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11
Casalguidi, Serravalle Pistoiese, Province of Pistoia, Tuscany
Holiday accommodation available on a British owned olive farm in Tuscany. This is conveniently located in the Montalbano Hills south of Pistoia, about 30 minutes drive from Florence and her airport and a little less than an hour from Pisa and her airport. There is plenty to enjoy for all ages and whatever interests, be these cultural, gastronomic, sporting or if you simply want to relax. We have tried to make it as safe for children as possible.

Accommodation consists of a farmhouse, 'la Casa Colonica', which sleeps up to 11. There is further accommodation closely if required. There is a good sized, fenced and illuminated swimming pool (11m x 5.5m) and the accommodation is modern and well appointed.

This is an ideal place for parties of 2 to 11 to base themselves while enjoying Tuscany at any time of the year.

Wonderful farmhouse stay. Lots of bedrooms, plenty of room to spread out and enjoy..the game room was a huge hit! Vaida and Mark were wonderfully helpful from our welcome beverages to helping plan our visits in the area, restaurant recommendations and a very special chefs dinner. The property is great, great pool, everything you need! Can't wait for a return...

We loved every minute of our time at Casa Colonica. There was something for everyone: beautiful and comfortable farmhouse, great outdoor space including the wonderful pool, great location for discovering the beauty of Tuscany. What makes this place truly special are Mark and Vaida. Nothing was too much trouble, they have been amazing hosts and I will be for ever...

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....

About the neighborhood
Pistoia (7 kms away) is a peaceful provincial capital surrounded by orchards and nursery gardens which, together with metalworking (the ‘pistol’ is named after the town), are the basis of its economy. Older than Florence, Pistoia has a long history associated with Roman times and her struggle against and eventual domination by the Medici of Florence. The surrounding area is mountainous with lower slopes covered with olive groves and vineyards and higher parts by forest. Pistoia boasts a classic Tuscan historic centre with important works of art and architecture, as well a particularly traditional food market. But these are yet to be discovered by many tourists and it is still possible to walk around the centre as the only outsider. Though generally tranquil, Pistoia goes wild in Jul... more
