An hour's drive from both Pisa and Florence airports with direct road links to Lucca and Pistoia, the medieval village of Popiglio is situated 540 m above sea level with stunning views across the Apennine mountains.
Casa Nicola is a beautiful house offering flexible accommodation as a single house or 3 large self-contained apartments by simply opening a couple of doors - perfect for large family gatherings or groups of friends.
There are several terraces including a roof terrace with a barbecue and with stunning views, located just off the largest of the 4 living rooms. There are 2 further terraces and a garden with pergola.
Popiglio is a large village with a bar and pizzeria in the piazza, a bakers, two small supermarkets, chemist, post office and bank machine. The nearest town is the attractive market town of San Marcello Pistoiese, just 10 minutes away, which has plenty of shops and restaurants.
The beautiful walled city of Lucca is just 40 minutes away as is Pistoia (Tuscany's hidden gem). Florence and Pisa are just an hour.
The River Lima in Popiglio is perfect for swimming and just a few minutes away.
For outdoor sports, Canyon Park is just 10 minutes away and offers the first high wire route through hidden, verdant gorges, suspended above an emerald green river. There are also Tibetan bridges spanning the river Lima as well as white water rafting. A spectacular treat for a family day out and for those who enjoy nature at its best.
The owner, a British artist living in the nearby town of Pistoia, can arrange cookery lessons at the house, wine and food tours, as well as tours of some of the sights of Florence and Lucca (including tickets for the Ufizzi). Please contact Nicola by email in advance to make arrangements.
