The Barbicaio farm holiday resort is located in the medieval village of Saturnana, about ten minutes from the centre of Pistoia. The surrounding area is a typical example of Tuscan countryside and is immersed in the thousand-year-old stillness of Pistoia’s first hill with its olive and chestnut groves. The landscape that forms the backdrop is truly picturesque: when atmospheric conditions allow, one can see Florence Cathedral, whose Brunelleschi-designed dome has made Tuscany and Italy famous throughout the world.

Our farm holiday resort in Pistoia is located in a strategic area at the centre of Tuscany, thirty kilometres Florence. All of our region’s major artistic-heritage cities: Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano and Vinci, are within an hour’s drive by car. It is therefore a perfect location to spend an artistic holiday in Tuscany.

The village in which the farm holiday resort is located, Saturnana, is an ancient one with a small population. Three or four kilometres of winding roads separate you from the hubbub of city life. It is one of those rare places that transport you back to a dimension we have perhaps forgotten: a life that is in balance with the natural rhythms of the seasons and in harmony with nature. In our village you can absorb not just traditions, but also our pride in a significant recorded history with Etruscan and Medieval traces: the parish church of St John the Baptist marks one of the most ancient parishes in the Pistoia region.

The farm holiday resort comprises two independent apartments, each equipped with every comfort and immersed in the quiet of these verdant hills. Each apartment for your holidays has two or three double rooms, two bathrooms, a lounge with satellite television and a kitchen fully equipped both with linen and with cooking and tableware.
Outdoors, all of the farm holiday resort apartments have a covered private car port, a barbeque and a spacious sunbathing area where silence and relaxation is guaranteed with only the sounds of nature.

For holidays with children, you will find something unique at the reception: our famous treetop cottage, a true example of environmental architecture, made entirely out of locally sourced timber. An enchanted place that has always left a lasting impression with our guests, young and old alike.

The farm holiday resort offers the use of mountain-bikes, facilities for playing ping-pong, or simply for having fun with little guests in the play area, which has swings and other open-air play facilities.

Right next to our farm holiday resort there are also footpaths that are ideal for relaxing walks among the olive groves, or through woodlands of typical Mediterranean shrubs and aromatic herbs.

A small stream runs through our land, whose waters are cool and drinkable. This could be the destination of your pleasant walk, maybe for a refreshing dip in the summer months.
