In past years Chestnut Cottage has been popular all year round with couples, young and old, looking for a romantic break or just to get away from it all. Guests have loved the 'back to nature' experience and the basic but comfortable accomodation. The attached bathroom is effectively 'outdoors' and whilst there is hot water there is no heating in the bathroom however we have had a number of guests who have actually proposed marriage whilst staying in Chestnut Cottage (even in Winter!!)

Guests can benefit from use of the owners local supermarket 'loyalty' card which gives discounts of up to 50% on a wide range of products (including wines!). One family group in 2012 'saved' the cost of their holiday using the card!!|

Further details indoors

There are no two ways about it Chestnut Cottage is compact and that is a large part of it's rustic charm and why many guests have returned time and again. I would just like to point out to those that might say 'there isn't enough room to swing a cat' that firstly, if you hold the cat by the base of the tale and not at the end you should be fine!! and also that there are 4 resident cats at the farm none of which have suffered serious head injuries, so clearly there is enough room :)

Further details outdoors

There is plenty of room amongst the 15 acres to find a peaceful and relaxing spot for yourselves

The Tuscany region

Pisa, Florence, the Versilia beaches and skiing at Abetone are all within an hours drive of the property and Sienna is just 1.5 hours away. In addition to the wealth of artistic treasures Tuscany has to offer guests can enjoy the world famous food and wine, sporting events, concerts, theatre and inumerable local festivities.


The local 'Palio' is an archery contest which takes place the 1st weekend in September.

Collodi, famous for it's links to Pinocciho is just 2 miles away.

Montecatini Terme is 3 miles away, famous for it's spas and treatments and will play host to the world cycling championships in 2013.

Lucca with it's medieval walls and recently voted in the top 3 most desirable places to live in Europe is just 10 miles away. Their summer music festival attracts top international stars and their Comics festival at the end of October is one of Europes largest giving 10's of thousands of collectors the chance to come out of their bedrooms!!

"Basic but brilliant"

Don't expect luxury, but do expect a warm welcome, amazing surroundings and the best of both worlds... An escape on a country hillside but with a traditional, non-touristy town within 20 minutes … More
