What to do: the surroundings
The residence is only a few miles from Florence, Pistoia, Montecatini Terme, Lucca and Pisa. It is in the countryside but still close enough to the main roadway that connects Florence to Pisa making it easy to enjoy day trips to Tuscany's main historical centers.
The local area offers a wealth of activities for guests to do, from visiting the historical centers of medieval villages to sports activities such as horseback riding, golf and tennis.
Montecatini Terme is famous for its spas and massages, sports centers, parks and shops and restaurants. In Pistoia you will find Pinocchio's Park, the Pistoia Zoo and the historical center with its churches, bell towers and fort as well as an outdoor market and many local products.
For those that enjoy being outdoors, the area can be explored on foot, bike or horse. From the hills of Montalbano to the mountains of the Abetone, there are many small mountain villages which conserve rural farming traditions and which can be explored anytime but particularly during summer and fall festivals. A 18 hole Golf Club is only 5km from the villa.
