About Mr. Davide Ferrari
I am the manager of “GMG Holidays”, a small family business operating with its self-catering properties near the town of Pistoia, a few dozen minutes away from other important art cities like Florence, Lucca and Pisa as well as from the beaches of Versilia. What we aim at offer you is the chance to spend a relaxing holiday in the nature of a green valley set between the town of Pistoia and the Tuscan Apennine Mountains. This is a well known and loved winter holiday destination, famous for the ski slopes of Abetone, but also an enchanting holiday spot between spring and autumn, thanks to its pretty paths and silent ancient forests. Our properties are charming historic buildings which have been recently renovated and fully equipped to meet the needs of increasingly demanding tourists. In fact, my father and I are both passionate travellers and this helps us to empathize with the potential demands of our guests. We are truly committed to your satisfaction and looking forward to welcoming you to one of our properties! We will do our best to make you feel at home!

Enjoyed a family Christmas in this wonderful home. Top quality accommodation which easily accommodated the 10 of us. Great location and wonderful grounds. Very safe location for the four children in the party
Thanks a lot for your review! It's been a pleasure meeting you and we hope to host your family again.
Charming, historic place with tons of character
Both Nedo and Davide were extremely warm and welcoming. It was a perfect place for our family’s time in Tuscany. Our four and a half year old grandson loved the play equipment outside, but most of all enjoyed time in the large spa every evening before dinner. The kitchen was well equipped. There were many picturesque villages near by which we got to explore. It was also well situated for spending days in Florence, Pisa, and Lucca. There are great hiking trails across a quaint stream that were also enjoyed. Next time we’ll have to come in the summer to enjoy the beautiful outdoor swimming pool.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience at our villa. It would be a great pleasure to welcome you again at Villa Le Panche!
Our time spent at the villa is one we will all cherish. We had extra people join our group last minute and since the villa was at capacity, Davide and his father graciously accommodated them at their adorable Inn just next door. The villa was extremely well appointed even according to the most discriminating in our bunch. Everything from the bedrooms, the kitchen (which was well tested, believe me), the dining and outdoor spaces, were all top notch.
Davide and Nedo were also incredibly knowledgeable and helpful both before and during our stay, directing us to dining, shopping, hiking and hidden gems we never would have known about otherwise. Thank you!!
We will be back and will highly recommend to others!
We had an absolutely fabulous time at the villa. We were a group of 9 retired individuals (4 couples and 1 single) - this place was perfect for us. It was in a great location to visit the many cities and towns in this area. Davide recommended a butcher/restaurant close by that we enjoyed so much, we had dinner there 3 times. He also recommended a chef that prepared an absolutely delicious dinner for us one night. Davide and his father were very helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable. Definitely recommend since we are hoping to return again.
We had a lovely family stay here this year. There were 11 of us and the villa met all our needs. Facilities were great and location beautiful. We travelled to Florence by train which as very easy and hassle free.
The only thing I would recommend is for a fan in the upstairs bedroom as it did get hot al night time. Thank you fDavide for making our stay memorable.
Thank you so much, it was a pleasure meeting you and your family. By the way, it's a pity you did not ask, we have several fans available for our guests, as marked in the house description.
Fabulous family holiday
The villa is beautiful with plenty of space for a large family. It was very clean, large bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The outdoor space was great, so the 2 children and dog were well entertained. You definitely need a car to get around but there is a village only a 10 minute walk away with a shop with a butcher which had most of the things we needed and did fresh bread/pastries. We didn’t realise the villa was very close to the road but this wasn’t a problem as it is very secure. It is also next to a garage which could be quite noisy sometimes but those were the only downsides. Davide and his father were extremely helpful, very easy to contact and would get in touch quickly - even coming over if there was a problem, which gave us peace of mind. I would strongly recommend the villa for a relaxing family holiday.
Villa Le Panche is located 17 km North of the town of Pistoia. The closest restaurant, the beautiful and truly Tuscan 'Liberamente Le Panche', is located next to the villa and reachable on foot through a private path. The area around Villa Le Panche, known as the 'Pistoia's Apennines' is a perfect holiday destination for people who appreciate a very well preserved environment with plenty of trekking routes to enjoy on foot, on horseback or by mountain bike. It is rich of rivers for canoeing and fishing and offers many opportunities for practising all kinds of outdoor sports.
Located 20 minutes from Florence and Lucca, Pistoia also has much to offer in terms of history, art, monuments, traditions, nature and cuisine. Walking through the picturesque streets of its historic centre, visitors will find many good restaurants that offer authentic dishes of the Tuscan tradition, as well as local wines, at fair prices. Very interesting is the huge market that takes place on the monumental Piazza del Duomo and surrounding streets twice a week. Pistoia also offers one of the major zoological gardens in Italy.
To visit, nearby, Vinci with the Leonardian museum, Montecatini with its thermal baths, the medieval villages of Valdinievole including Collodi, the town of Pinocchio, the Butterfly House and Villa Garzoni.
Major destinations such as Florence, Lucca, Pisa and the coast of Versilia are within 1 hour distance from the villa. The medieval town of Siena and the wonderful Cinque Terre area are reachable in 1h30 minutes.
