Residence le Coloniche has all the necessary features to make a holiday in Tuscany popular. First of all the location is perfect if you want to combine culture and seaside in your holiday. There are good connections to Florence, Lucca and Pisa. The beaches by Viareggio (or one of the many other beaches) are all within a radius of 30 minutes drive.
In addition to this the buildings are from the 17th century and beautiful in true Tuscan style. The charming little medieval town of Serravalle Pistoiese is only 4 km from the farm, and closer still are bars, restaurants and shopping. The estate has 25 hectares of ground to enjoy, so there is no need to worry about lack of space.
Needless to say the estate also has a lovely big swimming pool. It is set among olive trees with views over the stunning countryside. It is possible to buy a very substantial breakfast on site (including sausage, ham, cheese, bread, cake, juice, and coffee).
The girls in the reception are extremely friendly and very happy to share their great knowledge of the area with the guests. If you want advice about where to eat, which excursions are available or any other queries you can safely go to them.
The nine apartments on the estate were converted in 2002 making everything new and well kept. The apartments are spread over two buildings and are all exceptionally spacious: The smallest apartment sleeping three would, in certain other parts of Italy, be expected to accommodate eight. The décor is typically Tuscan country style with exposed ceiling beams, terracotta floors and solid wood furniture. Although the style resembles the old country ways there is nothing missing as far as comfort goes. All the apartments have kitchen with oven and dishwasher, telephone, safe deposit box, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, satellite TV, washing machine and private heating. There are plenty of tables and chairs outside for you to enjoy the wonderful scenery while you are dining or having a quiet glass of wine. There is a large car park by the farm.
NB. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the motor way runs in the bottom of the valley approx. 1 km from Le Coloniche, so a faint traffic hum is audible (especially by the swimming pool). You can also see the motorway in the distance, but it only takes up about 10% of the horizon.
