Holiday Rental House
'I Girasoli'' is a lovely apartment in rustic Tuscan style in a beautiful stone farmhouse which is divided into two completely independent apartments, each with its own private outdoor space. 'I Girasoli'' is on two floors (ground floor kitchen with living room, first floor the master bedroom, bedroom with bunk beds, bathroom with shower), has the privilege of delicious loggia in front of the entrance with table and chairs for relaxing and dining outdoors during the summer. The farmhouse is completely renovated while preserving some elements typical of the old architecture of the Tuscan countryside (ceilings with wooden beams, terracotta tiles, stone facade ...) that refers to the atmospheres of other times and makes the general atmosphere warm and welcoming.

The apartment is furnished and decorated with care and well-equipped to make your stay convenient and comfortable. On the ground floor of the farmhouse there is a room used as laundry room (shared with the other apartment), a small 'museum' of agricultural tools (recovered during the renovations) where we also organized our 'tourist office' with maps , books, lists of events to date, recommended restaurants, etc.. We also organize tastings of products from our farm (olive oil, vegetables, wines and delicatessen). The house is an excellent starting point to visit all the most beautiful cities of Tuscany (from the nearby Lucca, Pisa, Pistoia and Florence to Siena, Arezzo and the whole coast in a day trip), but also to learn about pretty villages medieval less known but worth seeing: Collodi (3 km away) home of Pinocchio, Monte Carlo (suggestive walk about 4 km from our house to reach it, beautiful forests, vineyards and olive groves), Vinci, Barga, Volterra, and Vellano and the ten castles in the mountains above Pescia. Pescia same, 4 km away, is a beautiful medieval town, where all the facilities are located. More

Somewhat away from it all it seems but yet a great location for visiting the region as the home is situated between Firenze and Pisa. All main places of Tuscany are easy day trips from here. Many smaller towns nearby to visit and only 25...More
