Tuscan Farmhouse on Olive Farm 30 minutes from Florence (sleeps 11)

Farmhouse -
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.

We were a group of 2 families who enjoyed a fabulous week at CasalGuidi. The house was large and well kept as were the pool and garden areas. The beds were amazingly comfortable! Well equipped kitchen and BBQ were great and the dishwasher was welcome!...More

This villa was ideal for our large family, which included toddlers. The location was handy- well located between Pisa and Florence airports, and with a decent supermarket and gelateria near by. The views from the house, garden and pool were fantastic, and being up in...More

Thank you so much for your generous review - it was great to have you stay. We are only sorry that we were not able to tempt you up to our house for drinks, but understand that the childrens' needs made this difficult. Best wishes.

About the neighbourhood
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
