Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The 16 metre swimming pool, open from May to September, is built into the side of the mountain and enjoys particularly spectacular views across the mountains, valley and neighbouring villages. It is 100 metres away from the house in order to ensure the peace and quiet around the apartments themselves.Il Gufino was once the family home in the farmhouse, and has been fully restored with the original floors and ceilings.Il Gufino comprises: (60 m2: Sleeps 2-4) Dining/sitting room with kitchen, sofabed and open stone fireplace with original wooden fire oven (30m2) + 1 double bedroom (12 m2) + a large bathroom with shower, toilet, bidet and basin. Stone walls, original brick and wooden ceilings with exposed beams, original brick floor, tiled marble kitchen with electric oven, four hob stove, refrigerator, freezer and granite basin. Adjustable heating. Private entrance. Private fenced garden with outdoor furniture (approx. 50m2).The farmhouse is deep in the mountains in the relatively 'undiscovered' north of Tuscany. While still within easy reach of Florence, Bologna, Lucca and Pisa, the villa is perfectly located for wonderful mountain walks, horse riding and skiing in winter. There are historical villages to visit and also great local amenities.Local villages are lively throughout the summer, with many Italians coming to escape the suffocating heat of Florence and surroundings. There are traditional village parties on most weekends- come and celebrate tortellini pasta, or admire local street art festivities! San Marcello itself celebrates its Santa Celestina in early September, sending balloons up into the sky from the lively main square.Choose which of the distinct seasons to visit in- here we have heavy spring blossom, hot summers, smokey autumns and winter skiing.

San Marcello Pistoiese

The farmhouse is a 20 minute walk from the centre of the village. There are some excellent restaurants in the local area. The most famous is said to have invented the sumptuous 'tagliata'- a fat and juicy cut of beef cooked in a special way. You can also try the restaurant with 7 taster pasta dishes, or another with inventive twists on traditional Italian cooking. Local specialities include Porcini mushrooms & wild boar- and don't foget bread, oil and wine!SIGHTSEEINGSan Marcello-in-Pistoiese is just one of many delightful hill-top villages that are worth visiting in the region – and it's only a short walk from your apartment. There are several restaurants in San Marcello Pistoiese, 3 banks with ATMs, pubs and bars, supermarkets, internet access, and everything you might need for your holiday. The nearest town is Pistoia, a small but interesting place that really is worth a visit. Also worthy of note, and equally captivating, are Gavinana and its small museum, Cutigliano, and Popiglio, famed for the Castruccio bridge. Not to be missed, however, is Montecatini Terme, a beautiful spa town built by the Grand Duke of Tuscany that was once the haunt of European royalty. Sample the various treatments available in one of the stylish spas; enjoy the grandeur of the architecture; and take the funicular cable car to Montecatini Alto, the most historic part of the town, which offers panoramic views over the surrounding countryside as well as boasting a square full of inviting restaurants.WALKINGThere are plenty of options for pleasant strolls in the surrounding woodland and Tuscan countryside. However, for something a little more challenging, we provide detailed route notes for some wonderful walks in the mountains:• Gavinana Observatory (15km, 4-5hrs): Starting from the apartment, this circular walk commences with an ascent to a fine viewpoint at the Observatory. The route then heads east, contouring the mountainside above Gavinana and Maresca, using quiet forest paths that are easy to follow. The route descends into the village of Maresca, where you can stop for refreshments, before joining more tranquil paths across the open countryside back to Gavinana.• Pistoiese Apennines: For hugely rewarding, though fairly strenuous walks, we recommend a number of routes in the mountains, including around Monte Abetone and the Corno alle Scale which can be ascended (with the aid of cable cars!) from Cutigliano, only a 10-kilometre drive from San Marcello. Discover the delights of Lake Scaffaiolo while enjoying far-reaching views through these little-known hills.

“My Perfect place”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2014

This cottage has been a favourite of our family for years. This last trip was no disappointment. Nestled in the hillside above San Machello. Sandro was more than helpful to get the most from our stay and would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful cottage.

“Il Gufino”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2014

Il Gufino was everything we had hoped for. The house was well-presented, well-maintained, and impeccably clean. It is situated atop a hill, but close enough to the town. Very comfortable with all the amenities we could possibly need. It has a spacious garden and a large swimming pool. Ideal for a couple or a family of four. The setting was completely private. We loved the ambience and enjoyed our quiet walks out in the countryside. The sunrise over the hills was beautiful and the views from the pool area were stunning. It was wonderful to enjoy our meals outside overlooking the Tuscan scenery. This property exceeded our expectations. We had a very pleasant stay and would go back in a heartbeat!
