Private garden (approx. 20 m2) connected to the apartment by a small wooden bridge, with outdoor furniture and an amazing view.One of these rooms was the farmhouse's 'metato', originally used for drying chestnutsThe farmhouse is a perfectly restored villa that respects the traditional architecture of Tuscany, with antique furniture and rustic interior features selected to maintain the warm atmosphere of the past. One of the bedroom was the farmhouse's 'metato', which was the place originally used for drying chestnuts throughout a soft smoke produced underneath lasting 40 days. The sitting room and bedrooms enjoy fabulous views out across the mountain. This charming rustic apartment is hidden away along a secluded strada bianca, not far from the pretty village of San Marcello Pistoiese which is an ideal place in which to get to know authentic Tuscany.The 16 metre swimming pool, open from May to September, is built into the side of the mountain and follows the natural curves of the hillside. This site enjoys particularly spectacular views across the mountains, valley and neighbouring villages. It is 100 metres away from the house in order to ensure the peace and quiet around the apartments themselves.More

About the neighbourhood
The farmhouse is a 20 minute walk from the centre of the village. There are some excellent restaurants in the local area. The most famous is said to have invented the sumptuous 'tagliata'- a fat and juicy cut of beef cooked in a special way. You can also try the restaurant with 7 taster pasta dishes, or another with inventive twists on traditional Italian cooking. Local specialities include Porcini mushrooms & wild boar- and don't foget bread, oil and wine! SIGHTSEEING 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. There are several restaurants in San Marcello Pistoiese, 3 banks with ATMs, pubs and bars, supermarkets, internet access, and everything you might need for you...
How to get there
From Florence take the motorway A11 to Pisa and exit at Pistoia. From there follow the signs for Abetone and after 23 km you get to San Marcello Pistoiese. Florence is about 50 minute drive from San Marcello. San Marcello is about 1.5 hours drive from Pisa airport, which has extensive budget airline connections to the UK and car hire. We are also 1 hour drive from Florence airport and 1h45 from Bologna airport. However, the efficiency of public transport also makes it possible to stay at the farmhouse without a car although a car is recommended; there are excellent train links from Pisa airport, Florence, Lucca to Pistoia and from Bologna to Pracchia. Regular buses from Pistoia and Pracchia come to San Marcello.
