The nearest town is the attractive market town of San Marcello Pistoiese, just 10 minutes away, which has plenty of shops and restaurants. The beautiful walled city of Lucca is just 40 minutes away as is Pistoia (Tuscany's hidden gem) and Florence is just an hour. The River Lima in Popiglio is perfect for swimming and just a few minutes away. For outdoor sports, Canyon Park is just 10 minutes away and offers the first high wire route through hidden, verdant gorges, suspended above an emerald green river. There are also Tibetan bridges spanning the river Lima as well as white water rafting. A spectacular treat for a family day out and for those who enjoy nature at its best. The owner, a British artist living in the nearby town of Pistoia, can arrange cookery lessons at the house, wine and food tours, as well as tours of some of the sights of Florence (including tickets for the Ufizzi). Please just contact Nicola by email in advance to make arrangements.More
