Casa della Vista

Overview
Farmhouse -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Pescia, Province of Pistoia, Tuscany
With a beautiful location set below the small, medieval hill village of Sorana, this is a traditional stone farmhouse retaining all the usual beautiful Tuscan features of cotto floors, chestnut beams and an open fireplace.

Outside there are private olive groves for the children to play in, a terrace for al fresco dining, BBQ for outdoor cooks and a pool for cooling off in the glorious summer days - all with spectacular views of the Pescia valley. Two of the best restaurants in the area are just down the road or there is further fine dining in and around the local town of Pescia, less than 15 minutes drive away

Open all year around, this house offers a quiet retreat from which to explore the surrounding hills on foot to local villages such as Vellano, Castelveccio, Fibialla or Medicina.

As the title suggests, a perfect place to relax. Even if the house is small, its anyway big enough for 5 people. It is very cozy and the view is simply gorgeous. The equipment is perfectly adequate, only in bad weather - which we did...More

Lovely little property tucked in the beautiful hills. Place was clean and tidy, pool was wonderful. Chris who looks after the place was super helpful. Bed was comfy and amazingly we got a great 4G signal due to a very close tower.

Thanks for being such a great guest and for taking the time to give us your feedback. You are correct about 4G - guests can connect with the outside world if they so wish 😊

Breathtakingly stunning views and nothing but the sound of goat's bells and the breeze through the olive trees ... we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful holiday! Although compact (the bathroom was a challenge for our tall family!), the house is an authentic Tuscan...More

About the neighbourhood
Sorana is situated along the valley north of Pescia known as Dieci Castella – part of the Province of Pistoia in Northern Tuscany. The valley takes its name from the 10 villages that line the valley hills and hilltops, each of which has a church with bell tower. During medieval and in more recent periods of upheaval like the second world war the towers acted as prime lookout posts for defence of the area

There are some beautiful places to visit in the Pescia valley and surrounding area in Northern Tuscany and Casa della Vista is the ideal location to use as a base from which to venture out or to relax and enjoy the fabulous views and perfect weather in summer
Getting around
Local villages such as Vellano, Fibialla, Castlevecchio, Aramo, San Quirico, Collodi and Medicina can all be explored on foot from the old mule tracks that run from right outside the front door of the house or the historic walled city of Lucca is only a 30 minute drive. Florence is about an hour and a half’s drive, if you want to risk the hairy Italian city traffic or the rail link from Pescia is regular and reliable and will allow you to take in the scenery across the rolling north Tuscan hills
