“Il Podere della Nonna" B&B (“Grandma’s Farm” B&B) is located in the San Baronto hills in Valdinievole (Lamporecchio – Pistoia) at mt. 280 above sea level.
Our B&B is family-managed, in an ancient farmhouse recently refurbished, located in the middle of a wide olive-yard.
It is the ideal site to spend a peaceful holiday in a direct contact with the rhythms of the nature, ticked by the sun, the moon, and the seasonal farmings.
Our B&B is located in a strategic place, close to most of the Northern Tuscany cities of art and culture and naturalistic parcs: Florence, Pistoia, Vinci the birthplace of Leonardo, Pisa, Lucca, Prato, Arezzo, the Versilia seasides, Leghorn and the Etruscan town of Volterra.
A few minutes from the spa of Montecatini Terme and Monsummano Terme, the Pinocchio Park at Collodi, the Padule di Fucecchio Faunal Park; less than an hour from Abetone mountains.
We have 3 large, bright, comfortable and well-appointed rooms recently refurbished, with a wonderful view over the Montalbano landscape. Two of the rooms are en-suite (Il Barco, L’Olivo), one has its exclusive adjacent bathroom (La Torre). Bathrooms are newly built, large and fitted with every comfort.
Besides our olive-yard, we cultivate a seasonal vegetable garden and many fruit trees.
We have also a small family of nice hens churning out daily tasty eggs.
In the morning you may take a good traditional Tuscan breakfast with coffee and milk or a tea, toghether with a slice of “bread-butter-and-jam”, a slice of our home made cakes, and a hard-boiled egg fresh from our hens, while admiring the wonderful Leonardesque view from our belvedere.
In Summer breakfast is taken in the panoramic courtyard in front of the house; in Winter in a warm and comfortable dining room furnished in a traditional country style.
“Il podere della Nonna” B&B is a unlosable place for travellers fond of Ecotourism, heritage and nature tourism.
Trekking on footpaths in Montalbano, where you cannot miss the Etruscan ruins of Montefortini and Prato di Rosello, and the Archaeological Museum of Artimino.
All Rooms equipped with free WIFI service.
