Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Villa La Rosa Antica (Antique Rose) is a charming Tuscan villa situated in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Lucca. Originally it was the barn of a 19th century Podere (farmhouse) and it's been completely restaured using traditional and handmade materials and reconverted in beginning 2013. Its name comes from an ancient rose plant which resisted to all seasons and works over the centuries. It has a wonderful view of the olive groves of the property and the medieval city of Pistoia...
Close by are two other houses which originally were the owners house and the farmers house, making all together a very tiny tuscan hamlet surrounded by an olive grove and a natural wood. Each house has is private garden and benefit of privacy and intimacy.
La Rosa Antica is a perfect base, for exploring the local Tuscan countryside with its many small villages and towns and the most interesting Tuscan cities. The historic town of Pistoia is only 3 Kms away and you can drive, bike or walk to it. Florence is just 30 min drive away or a short train journey (30mins) from the Pistoia train station.
In the vicinity you can find shops, restaurants, golf courses (within 30 minutes drive), horse riding, cooking classes. Many excursions are organised including wine tasting trips. If you are looking for experiencing the true Tuscan life, stylish location with lots on offer, this is the perfect place for you
We are planning to have a small pool by next summer 2014
