Pergine Valdarno is a very typical small village in Tuscany, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards.
While the village of Pergine Valdarno retains its “old time” charm it still offers all the modern conveniences such as a grocery, bakery, butchery , restaurant, bank, post office, pharmacy and police station.
The most famous cultural towns, like: Florence, Siena, Arezzo and all the Chianti area are al around this town.
The most important cultural towns are a short drive away, but don't forget to dedicate part of your time to explore the beautiful Valdarno valley!
There are several free parking just nearby the house. The square where is located the house is a pedestrian area and just a short time to unload the luggage is permit.
LA MICCIA (60 MQ)
This nice apartment used to be a portion of the ancient farm and precisely the barn and stables where cows and donkey used to be lodged.
The owners have recently restored the house with much care, fully respecting the original features of this Tuscan old house, and providing an excellent level of comfort.
The villa has been restored by the owners respecting and following the Tuscan traditional character: the walls are in stone and the floor in traditional handmade “cotto toscano”. Also the antiques furniture are in harmony with the style of the house and are property of the family since a long time; The owner's intention was also to offer the house as a perfect "honey moon" place, a beautiful and warm space where our guests can enjoy the quiet life of a small village in the romantic Tuscan countryside.
The access to the house is on the village square. The square is a pedestrian area so we provide a small table that can be located just outside the door, where our guest can enjoy a glass of wine and the summer evening gentle breeze.
All the furniture are antiques and originally property of the family.
Inside the house there’s a free guide book that can give some information about the Valdarno area, such as train timetable to Florence and Rome; list of shops, restaurants and shopping malls in the area; and some maps to help people to move around. We think it can be a useful help for our guests to feel welcome and 'at home'.

Just on the side of the hot tub room, there's a door that lead to a double bedroom with a four-poster bed, even more attractive thanks to old pieces of furnishing, dating back to the end of the 19th century, belonging to the family. The room has a big, large window to enlight the place.
