A house to rest. A garden open to the valley and the pleasure not to hear any noise of cars and traffic.
The confidence to sleep with the windows wide open on the starry night.
cool and restful sleep even in summer. The house of dinners with friends and relatives in the arbor, the house of birthdays, the August holiday, the Christmas tree home of transplanted city and soared, the fruit trees planted in the various births in the family, the chestnut " saved "by his grandfather Otello from the attack of ants, the endless evenings spent playing cards, of starry nights ...
This has been since 1972 the home of the weekend and our summer holidays. We restored piece by piece with our hands and furnished (we hope!) decorated.
The privileged location at the foot of a hamlet lies on the hills of Pistoia allows you to have an unsurpassed view and especially the advantage of having no homes or attached to the side gardens and thus enables the total quietness and privacy. This however requires the effort of not being able to park the car in front of the house.
The meters to walk no more than 60 and on paved ground. Basic but it is not a suitable place to people with poor mobility or with wheelchair.
Our house is located in a small hamlet perched on the hills near Pistoia. The hamlet is called "Casaccia" and consists of 5-6 houses inhabited by residents and 3-4 as holiday homes.
The nearest town is Piteccio (3 km). Here you will find the grocery store with fresh bread, fruit and vegetables, pharmacy, post office, bars and bus stop COPIT to reach Pistoia.
The car is essential! Public transport comes to the village of Piteccio (autubus 25). From here we have to go 3 km of which 2.5 uphill.
