The B&B "The farm of Giustina" is the ideal solution, if you want to spend your holidays in Tuscany in the countryside, but with all the conveniences of the city. The owners will place at your disposal not only a bedroom and a private bathroom, but also free wi-fi, satellite tv, free use of the kitchen, large outdoor spaces with play equipment for children; above all, you will be surrounded by the care and attention of the hosts, who will have you as their unique guests. The breakfast, made with local produce, is served very close to the olive trees and vines of the surrounding countryside.
The house is recently renovated and can offer the same comfort of the most modern townhouses, but is also a farm with a cellar and with all the necessities to cultivate the fields. The two owners live in the house and share with the guests the household appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator, etc..), the kitchen, the bookcase with guidebooks and maps of places to visit, the garden, the wide open spaces also equipped with some outdoor play equipment for children and the shady grove with tables and chairs. If they wish, the guests can also take part in some simple agricultural activities, such as the grapes or olives harvest.
The house, built only 5 years ago, is in the middle of the country, but also not far from the main roads, the restaurants, the shops, the railway station.
The bedroom for the guests, designed and furnished in an original style, combines a modern structure with the antique furniture, that used to belong to the owners’ grandparents, and occupies the entire upper floor. The bedroom has its own shower and private bathroom, as well as a LCD HD television with satellite connection (news and movies also in English), a blue-ray and DVD player, a hairdryer and an electric fan.
The wi-fi is available and completely free. The room has a view of the surrounding countryside. All the necessary furniture needed for children under 4 is available (cot, high chair, etc.).
We really enjoyed our stay at Il Podere Di Giustina. The room is really lovely and exactly as it looks in the pictures. Our hosts were very kind and helpful, providing us with all the info and with plenty of useful guides. Breakfast was also of a high standard, with local products and tasty home-made bread. Marco also booked a restaurant for us on NYE. We were very well liked after, Marco and Paola really made us feel home. Elena on Jan, 2015
Wow what lovely, accommodating hosts and what a lovely home. The room is gorgeous, just like the pictures... and Marco went out of his way to help us from start to finish. Home-made jam and treats at breakfast was a lovely start to each day. A great place to kick back and enjoy the quiet side of Tuscan life. Rachel on Dec, 2014
Great stay at Marco´s place. The room upstairs is very nice with a great shower, comfy bed, and cable TV. We wanted to use this time to rest in the middle of our 7 week Europe trip but I don't think Marco was happy about that :) Montecarlo is a beautiful little town on a hill. Dan on Jun, 2014
Il nostro soggiorno a casa di Marco e Paola sono stati meraviglios! Siamo stati accolti con calore e attenzione. La casa è bella, pulita e ben organizzata. La colazione era deliziosa! Indico fortemente! Suelen on Oct, 2014
Marco kept in contact with us prior to our visit and was there to greet us when we arrived. The room was beautiful with a great shower. The house is situated in an olive grove outside of town with a very pretty view from our window Steve on Sep, 2014
Although the house is right in the middle of the countryside of Tuscany, it is not too far from the motorway (4 km.) or the train station (1 km.), which can be easily reached on foot. With the train or with the car you can easily reach Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Pistoia, Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo, Collodi, Pinocchio’s home town, the seaside with Viareggio or the mountains.
You can also go for walks in the surrounding area in the middle of the typical landscape of the Tuscan hills and you quickly reach the village of Montecarlo, very characteristic, but also full of many good restaurants and pizzerias.
