A unique Farmhouse at the foot of the Tuscan Appennines
Barbicaio is a characteristic farmhouse immersed in the green of Tuscany’s countryside only 10 km from the historical center of Pistoia. Surrounded by the Pistoiesi Mountains, it is located in a central position perfect for hiking through the territory or organizing day trips in the nearby cities of Tuscany. At the foot of the Tuscan Apennines, it also represents an attractive accommodation for winter sport lovers as guests can reach the Abetone ski resort area in less than an hour’s driving time.
Agriturismo Barbicaio offers two large and comfortable apartments recently restored which can host up to 11 people overlooking the city of Pistoia.
Agriturismo Barbicaio is located in the town of Saturnana, in the countryside close to the historical center of Pistoia. A green and quiet oasis in which to spend a holiday in touch with nature, the farmhouse is perfect for enjoying the territory, hiking or practicing outdoor sports.
Guests will have the feeling of stepping outside of time, far from civilization while the city is only 10 minutes far from the farmhouse. The farmhouse represents a wonderful choice for families with children who will love playing in the huge lawn which surrounds the estate.
Pistoia, Abetone and the Surroundings...
The historical center of Pistoia is 10 km from the Barbicaio Farmhouse. Pistoia is a small Florence and certainly less famous than its nearby neighbor, still to be discovered by many visitors. Surrounded by a 15 meter fortified wall, the city offers many magnificent monuments and museums to visit: from the large Piazza Duomo with its large bell tower and baptistery to the original buildings of the Palazzo del Comune and the Palazzo del Podestà, to name just a few. Pistoia presents an interesting journey through art and history which shows signs of past ages and various styles.
The Abetone mountain is 45 km from Saturnana and represents the best alternative to the cities. Here you can find some of the most beautiful and well-equipped ski resorts of the Tuscan Apennines, both for those who love skiing and those that don’t, as well as for families with children given the many events and activities in the area.
In the summer, Abetone is an equally well-recommended destination since it offers a break from the summer heat and gives various possibilities for sport, from trekking and mountain biking to hiking through the beautiful nature breathing lots of fresh air.
Halfway between Florence and Lucca, the Farmhouse Barbicaio is the ideal base from which to start visiting the two historical cities which are less than an hour away.
The Comfortable Apartments
The farmhouse Barbicaio offers two large apartments which were recently restored and are well-equipped to provide all comforts. The surrounding nature and the nearby stream make you feel outside of time as you enjoy the oasis where only quiet and peace rule. La Cascia apartment, as well as the Molino di Nelle, an independent watermill restored into an apartment, will be your refuge far from your daily routine for the whole duration of your wonderful stay.
The Barbicaio Farmhouse represents a point of equilibrium between calm and quiet in a welcoming environment in which guests will enjoy their perfect holiday in Tuscany. Book your stay directly with them!
