Tuscany Luxury vacation villa – Surrounded by extensive grounds deep in the heart of the splendid Pistoia countryside. La Verdeggiante is a beautiful, newly-built recreation of a traditional Tuscan villa. Artisan craftsmen have lovingly created every detail which gives this villa such authenticity, from the beautifully decorated, high wooden ceilings and frescoed walls to the terracotta floors, brick archways and large open fireplaces.
Ideal for larger groups, the accommodation is split between a main villa and two separate cottages, all finished to the same exacting standards. The large pool is close by with a wonderful pergola providing shade. Within the extensive idyllic gardens is an award-winning vegetable garden which provides organic produce which guests are invited to sample during their stay. A little further on, beyond the lush Mediterranean garden rich in scented shrubs and colourful flowers, lie 1500m of hiking trails which criss-cross the surrounding woodland and await exploration on foot or by bike.
In this area of Tuscany you will be spoilt for choice for things to do: from wine and oil tasting tours to horse riding; visits to some of Italy's most spectacular towns such as Florence, Lucca, Pisa and Pistoia, to days spent at the seaside along the sandy beaches of the Versilia coast. Small picturesque villages nearby often host local food fairs (sagre) and lively weekly markets. Why not treat yourself to a regenerating spa treatment at nearby Montecatini Terme or Monsummano Terme, where ancient hot-water springs will help you relax and rejuvenate.
