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 Tuscan...Holiday accommodation available on a British owned olive farm in Tuscany.

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.

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...
