Antico Pastificio was built in 1850, and the resort's original function was to produce pasta. After the building had been abandoned for almost 50years, the family decided to renovate the place and to transform it into apartments. Important was that it had to stay authetic without removing the old Tuscan flavors. We are pleased with the result, as this means you can enjoy ancient frescos on the walls, look up into the vaulted wooden ceilings, put your feet on a terra-cotta floors and in general feel and sense, that you've arrived in a historic part of Italy.

Nice location. There is less that 500 metres to shops, restaurants, the square, etc. Spacious apartment. Simple but still nice equipment. It can be a tad cold to stay here in the middle of October. The heater worked only a little - it was something we payed extra for. A narrow driveway to the place, so it can be an advantage to have a small car. Kind people in the reception.
