The Valdinievole (literally, the Valley of Nievole”), where the villa is located, is an original mix of famous thermal resorts, intact nature and ancient Medieval villages. It is found in the deep and secret heart of Tuscany, between Pistoia and Lucca and, for centuries, was a crossroads for culture, trade and meetings. Her hills conceal villages and castles that, from the “Swiss Pescia”, stretch out until Montalbano where the genius of Leonardo da Vinci was born. From the chestnut woods, passing through the landscape scattered with olives trees, we reach the valley where the precious waters of Montecatini Terme and the steam of Monsummano Terme’s grottos are born, and where the natural reserve of Padule di Fucecchio extends. The Valdinievole is the homeland of Pinocchio, the most famous puppet in the world.
There are several remarkable Art towns in the area (Pisa, Lucca, Firenze) and also some beautiful and relatively unknown medioeval towns like (Pietrasanta, Vinci, Montecatini Alto). In the area there are also a number of interesting contemporary gardens as well as some of the most incredible private villas of the world. There are several tennis courts nearby the estate. The golf club is just alongside the estate. You can play there by showing a passport or a membership card to your home course.
