About the neighbourhood
The farmhouse is a 20 minute walk from the centre of the village. There are some excellent restaurants in the local area. The most famous is said to have invented the sumptuous 'tagliata'- a fat and juicy cut of beef cooked in a special way. You can also try the restaurant with 7 taster pasta dishes, or another with inventive twists on traditional Italian cooking. Local specialities include Porcini mushrooms & wild boar- and don't foget bread, oil and wine!


San Marcello-in-Pistoiese is just one of many delightful hill-top villages that are worth visiting in the region – and it's only a short walk from your apartment. There are several restaurants in San Marcello Pistoiese, 3 banks with ATMs, pubs and bars, supermarkets, internet access, and everything you...
