Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Pistoia - Villa Le Panche

5 bedrooms ensuite, 14 beds near Pistoia, 40 minutes from Florence and Lucca

The villa was originally built in 1718, next to a medieval inn, when Colombino Bassi, Bishop of Pistoia and Prato, decided to set a country home for his summer retreat. Such a strong historic context, coupled with the proximity to the Reno river, makes of Villa Le Panche a charming destination.

The Bishop’s House has been completely restructured maintaining the characteristic elements of the original building. At ground floor there is a spacious fully equipped kitchen, a dining room and a large living-room with a beautiful central fireplace.

From the entrance, original 18th Century stairs lead to the upper floors where 5 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, and a cute supplementary bedroom with bunk beds are located. Another wide lounge with a billiard table (and queen size sofa bed) is located at the mansard roof level.

At the entrance level, in communication with the garden and the swimming pool, there is a fitness room with gym equipment, a 4 place sauna and a maxi jacuzzi (7 places).

Villa Le Panche offers a large private garden which stretches between the villa and the banks of the river Reno. The garden is fully fenced in order to ensure the privacy of our guests, the safety of their children and to prevent access to wildlife

The swimming pool measures 10m. in length, 5m. in width and is heated by a heating pump.

You can find more information, photo galleries, and reviews from our guests on the site www.villalepanche.com

Autumn in Tuscany: Our region is worldwide famous for its cultural heritage and sweet landscapes. Nevertheless, Tuscany can also be loved for the quality of its agricultural products and the taste of the traditional dishes.

Autumn is definitely the best season to appreciate this side of Tuscany's charm. This is the time of grapes harvesting (vendemmia), pressing of the olives ('olio nuovo') while on the Apennines it is possible to taste seasonal specialties made with chestnuts, porcini mushrooms and game (especially wild boars).

Tres joli villa, bien équipée et gentiment encadre

  • 5 out of 5
Grande villa, tres bien équipée spécialement pour plusieurs couples ou 2 familles.
Le top pour fêter Noel ou Réveillon, décoration Noel inclus. Propre et bien entretenue, et le jacuzzi est vraiment un atout. Tres bien encadre par les proprios qui sont tres accueillants. On envisage d'y retourner une semaine une été.
Nous avons eu mauvais temps mais nous nous n'avons pas ennuyé une seconde. Joli villages, musée, Florence, ski, balades, alors en plein milieu de tout. Un peu moins 'isolée' qu'on croyait, et au bord d'une route mais sans nuisances et en tout sécurité car clôturée. Joli jardin au bord d'une torrent. Nous la recommandons tres fort, et en plus, nous sommes nous mêmes des agents des location de villas de luxe (des Hollandais qui résident en France) alors, on a l'habitude....

Villa Le Panche is located 17 km North of Pistoia, in a lush valley, 40 minutes far from Florence and Lucca, 1 hour from the beaches of Versilia. Because of its position, our villa may be an ideal base for tourists interested in visiting the famous art cities of Tuscany as well as for nature lovers, aiming to discover the Tuscan Apennine's beautiful landscapes in all seasons (Abetone winter resort is just 30 km away).

Located at the foot of the mountains, between Florence and Lucca, Pistoia has much to offer in terms of history, monuments, folk traditions, nature and gastronomic specialties. Although less visited than other cities in Tuscany, Pistoia presents a well-preserved medieval centre with the monumental Cathedral Square, one of the most beautiful in Italy. Near Pistoia there are several interesting destinations like the Leonardian Museum in Vinci, Montecatini and its thermal baths, the medieval villages of the Valdinievole, including Collodi, the town of Pinocchio.

Ski: Winter Breaks on the Tuscan Mountains

Did you know that in just 30 minutes drive from Villa Le Panche it is possible to reach the ski resort of Abetone? Pistoia's Apennines, with 80 kms of slopes, is the most important winter destination in Central Italy. From December to April this represents another good reason for visiting our area of Tuscany, where it is possible to practice every kind of winter sports, such as downhill, cross-country ski (18kms of tracks), snowboard and sled.

All the different facilities are located near the villages of Abetone, Cutigliano and Maresca. They are all reachable in 15/30 minutes by car or by bus from the villa.
