The villa at the beginning of the 18th Century was the summer residence of an Italian Bishop. Its location near the Reno River, between the medieval city of Pistoia and the Apennines, and the historical background of this property makes it a very special holiday destination.

On the ground floor, when you enter the villa you’ll find an entrance hall, the spacious kitchen, a dining room for 16 people and a large living room with a spectacular fireplace.

In the 2000 sqm of fenced in garden, in front of the villa, there is the large swimming pool 10x5 (1.20 to 1.40m deep) with Roman steps. It is heated with solar panels and the water temperature is usually between 26 and 28 ° Celsius (depending on weather). The surface of the pool will be closed automatically at night which helps to store the heat overnight.

The ground floor leads also to the fitness center with sauna for 4 people, a large Jacuzzi for 7 people and changing rooms for the swimming pool outside.

From the entrance of the villa there is a natural stone staircase leading up to the first floor. There you’ll find a studio and three double bedrooms, which are all equipped with private en suite bathrooms. Another staircase leads up to the attic. Here there are two more bedrooms, both with private bathrooms, and a large living room with pool table.

The Florence airport is only 40 minutes by car from the villa; instead the airports of Pisa and Bologna are distant 50-60 minutes. The strategic location of Villa La Signora between Pistoia, Florence and Lucca (approximately 20 minutes) provides an ideal base for day trips to explore Tuscany. There is also an hourly bus service to the station of Pistoia. The bus stop is a few minutes walk from the house. Trains to Florence and the beaches of Viareggio exit Pistoia every 30 minutes.

In Pistoia, with its vibrant town center you will find many excellent restaurants and 2 times a week an interesting local market. The area surrounding the villa offers many recreational opportunities: hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, canoeing and fishing, cultural and leisure activities, e.g. Music and folklore festivals, gastronomic events and shows from the Middle Ages. Shops (shops, supermarkets), banks with ATM, post office, pharmacy and a hospital are within easily reachable.

Villa la Signora is a uniquely beautiful holiday domicile. It's a beautiful historic villa, architecturally well constructed with impressive thick walls and spacious and well positioned rooms. The owner, an architect himself, completely restored the house with great care some years ago. He was very successful in combining the classic elements of the house with all the requirements of modern life. At the beginning of our stay (two weeks in June 2014, a family with 9 persons and three generations) the owner and his son gave us an excellent introduction to the house, lots of information of the region and sightseeing and were always prompt in helping with small problems. All members of our family were enthusiastic about the house and its owners.

“Just wow! Amazing villa, with all comforts and idealistic rooms and view. Located in a wonderfull area in the north toscany, not so touristic with warm temperature during daytime and refreshing mountain climate during the evening.pool and jacuzzi were the top! Possibility to share the huge villa with friends (5 rooms with private toilet) near by bar, restaurant. In 20 min, pistoia and in 40 lucca and Florence! Just perfect!

“Couldn´t be better!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 9 September 2012 My wife went to the villa in September 2011 with her lady friends and the first night when she phoned home I could hear she almost had tears in her eyes. She wanted me to see it for myself, it was so lovely. So this September we went there together with five good friends and it certainly exceeded my expectations. It´s a combination of the ancient history of the house, the tasteful restoration and the quality of it, together with the breathtaking forests and hills surrounding it that makes it so enchanting. And, as mentioned below, father and son Nedo and Davide took the best care of us from the start, informing us about everything worth to visit in the vicinity. I could definitely recommend a stay at this amazing villa and I already miss it:-)

“Fabulous Vacation! The Villa is AMAZING and we cannot wait to go back!” Upon arrival Nedo and Davide met us at the Villa, gave us a tour, lists of info on groceries and restaurants, and some valuable sight-seeing advice! From this superb location we were able to visit Pisa, Cinque Terra, Florence, Siena, Volterra (Twilight Fans!!!), Pistoia, and Lucca......and we still enjoyed three full days of lounging by the pool! We shared the Villa with friends so in total there were 9 of us! The 5 kids (ages 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10) loved the jacuzzi, sauna, swimming and catching tadpoles in the babbling brook! The house is wonderfully quiet at night with light blocking shutters and the "thick" tuscan walls kept it cool and soundproof! So those of us that wanted to sleep-in were in heaven!! In the nearby town was a Coop grocery with a great butcher counter and deli for those days we stayed in to grill and enjoy the tastes of Italia!
