Description from owner

Description

The villa was originally built in 1718, next to a medieval inn, when Colombino Bassi, Bishop of Pistoia and Prato, decided to set a country home for his summer retreat and to rest during his visits to the area's parishes (as testified by a Latin stone engrave in the living-room).

Such a strong historic context, coupled with its location in a lush valley, along the banks of the river Reno, makes of Villa Le Panche a charming destination. The villa is located 20 minutes from the medieval town of Pistoia (where you can find highway and railway connections to Florence and the other interesting destinations of Tuscany) at the beginning of the Apennine Mountains region, so that our villa may be an ideal base for tourists interested in visiting the famous Tuscan art cities as well as for nature lovers, aiming to discover the Apennines' beautiful landscapes in all seasons.

My father and I decided to buy this villa on the purpose of welcoming tourists from all over the world. We renovated it in 2009 so as to let it offer wide common areas and all modern comforts, such as ensuite bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining spaces, two large living rooms, one of which is provided of a pool table. However, the most appreciated room is the private Spa, provided of sauna, maxi-jacuzzi and fitness equipment.

From spring to autumn the villa's strong point is definitely the wide fenced garden with the private heated swimming pool.

My father and I are both passionate travelers and this helps us to empathize with the potential demands of our guests.

We are truely committed to your satisfaction and looking forward to welcoming you to our properties!

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is certainly one of the best known among the Italian regions. It is the land of the Renaissance's capital city, Florence, as well as of many other beautiful medieval towns and villages. It is worldwide famous for the beautiful sweet hills and for the excellence of its wines and food products. All the different areas of Tuscany represent a world to discover for their natural peculiarities, for the widespread architectural wealth, for the gastronomic traditions and the many folkloric and cultural events. I will be glad to give you all the needed information to get rapidly acquainted with our area. At check in, I will also provide you with useful maps, brochures and local guides.

Pistoia

Visitors to the Pistoia Apennines can enjoy its well preserved natural environment and breathtaking views. So it was for the iconic actor and philanthropist Paul Newman who chose to locate in this area, in a WWF natural reserve, its Dynamo Camp, a center of recreational therapy for children with serious illnesses. The area is a perfect destination for those who love all kinds of outdoor sports: the mountains are rich with trails for walking, mountain biking or horseback riding, as well as rivers and lakes for fishing. During the summer, the Pistoia Mountains offer a rich program of cultural and recreational events such as music and folklore festivals, gastronomic fairs and medieval re-enactments.

Located 20 minutes from Florence and Lucca, Pistoia also has much to offer in terms of history, art, monuments, traditions, nature and cuisine. Walking through the picturesque streets of its historic center, visitors will find many good restaurants that offer authentic dishes of the Tuscan tradition, as well as local wines, at fair prices. Pistoia also offers one of the major zoological gardens in Italy. To visit, nearby, Vinci with the Leonardian museum, Montecatini with its thermal baths, the medieval villages of Valdinievole including Collodi, the town of Pinocchio. During the winter season, our area offers modern downhill and cross-country ski facilities. With over 80 kms of Alpine ski slopes, Abetone is the most important winter resort in Central Italy. Cross-country tracks are located at 15 minute drive from our villa, while downhill slopes can be reached in 30 minutes. All main facilities (shops, supermarkets, banks with ATM, post offices, pharmacies, hospital) are very closely located (between 1 and 10 km from the property).
