Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The Dream goes on in Tuscan hospitality, art, culture and fine food come and experience it all for yourself:

From the Etruscans to the Romans, Tuscany is the greatest repository of art in the world, from fine art, paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural wonders.

Visitors to Tuscany originate from all over the world. Many come in search of breathtaking art, but walkers & cyclists the rolling hills to explore the extraordinary countryside. Lovers of food and wine descend on Tuscany to enjoy the wonderful fresh food and wine. If you are a summer vacationers you will come to see the sea and coastland beach of Viareggio and islands of Elba & Capraia. Young people and students arrive eager to learn the expressive Italian language and culture. Walking in Tuscany is great see: www.tuscanywalkingfestival.it

There are lots to see in Tuscany. Why not start with Florence, and then continue on to Siena, Lucca and Pisa. But do not miss the small hill top villages with their quite and relaxing way of life. So if it is San Gimignano or Florence or the Pisan hills they are all striking. The more you see the more you will want to come again. Come and see for yourself and enjoy your visit!

Vellano

The city of Pescia takes its name after the river which divides it in two parts and which makes it cool and pleasant for visits especially during the spring and summer.

The Medici family was very important for this city. Leone X - Medici's Pope - erected its first parish in 1519 and then the same family improved its economy. The main economy in the past was from paper making, leather and silk were their main sources. Today Pescia lives on flower cultivation and tourism.

What to see in Pescia

In the old medieval town centre you can visit Palazzo del Vicario, decorated with coats of arms of Florentine vicars, today seat of the Town Hall; The Church of St. Francesco, which has the most authentic painting on wood of St. Francis of Assi, painted just 12 years after his death by Bonaventura Berlinghieri; than you can visit the Church of San Antonio and last The Palagio or Palazzo del Podestà, both beautiful and characteristic buildings of 14th century.

“Beautifully tranquil home from home”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2012

A beautifully decorated top floor of the owners home, with it's own entrance and terrace for sitting out. Only a short amble to the village where we ate both well and cheaply at very family friendly small restaurants. Set in the mountains we had spectacular views but were only 15 minutes from an amazing supermarket with a fantastic fruit and vegetable selection. Indeed, we went there everyday on our way back from trips out as it was conveniently en route! The hosts were lovely and helpful when needed but discreet when not -truly a lovely venue and we for sure would love to go back.

Dear Lorraine and family, It was with great pleasure that I read your Review. Yes I agree what fantastic tasty, fresh and inexpensive food there is in Italy. It is a pleasure to go down to the Piazza Mazzini on Saturday mornings and dare I say it, the supermarket to buy all those new and full-flavoured ingredients. We hope to see you again and many thanks for your gracious Review. Kind regards, Darren
