This is the third time we have stayed at the Agriturismo and every time it gets better.
Sandro and his family are very warm and welcoming, always trying to make us feel at home.

The location is nicely tucked away in the Tuscan hills with plenty of sunshine and peaceful, about 10km from the town centre of Pistoia.

The swimming pool has a very nice view over the village and Pistoia.

The house 'La Cascia' we stayed in, has plenty of space (two bathrooms, three bedrooms). Outside there's a big wooden bench where we enjoyed our breakfast and dinner moments.

Other plus points are free wifi and laundry facilities.

We will definitely be back for another holiday and to see my dear friends.

When we arrived, we had a great welcome with the friendly owners. We rented the watermill and were invited to follow the owners over a small road with a beautiful view. At the end we landed in "Middle of Nowhere" where we were surprised by a private paradise: a nicely renovated watermill with a Cosy stove inside. Outside we had a private piece of grassland with a waterfall, with a open air fireplace beside it.
With our family we could have all the privacy we wanted, sat by the fireplace, took breakfast on the pichnicktable covered by a wooden roof.
We had some trouble with the car and Sandro was the first to offer his help. In general everyone was very helpful and interested in us and made us feel at home.
We felt sorry to have to leave from this really nice place.

we spent 3 weeks in june 2013 in the beautifull 'Molino di Nelle' where only the sound of the nature could be heard. The cities of Pistoia, Lucca, Pisa, Firenze were very easy to reach and all locations could be visited using the train as from Pistoia : excellent parking place around the Pistoia station. The 'molino' itself has 2 big sleeping rooms, kitchen, TV etc. You can do your own grill and even a fireplace nearby the little river was very romantic to sit and to enjoy the location.
Sandro and family were very friendly and we could use the swimming pool at their location. Also our dog was very welcome and every day she could run free there. If you want to escape the daily stress : come to the Molino !
We enjoyed the evenings in Pistoia where a choice of a lot of local restaurants gave us a good opportunity to taste the specialities (including the good wines ). As from Pistoia the sea was at less then one hour drive and the beach was very easy to reach.
We enjoyed the drinks we had with the family and we always got a warm welcome. The grandmother surprised us with a present when we ended our holidays !
When you want to escape the daily stress this is for sure an excellent place to be : the full nature around you at the Molino.
We enjoyed our stay. Ciao ..... Dirk and Renate from Gent in Belgium

Room tip: visit Pistoia, Lucca, Pisa and Firenze.

We stayed in La Cascia and the flat below, both very tastefully furnished, with complete kitchens. We liked particularly:
The friendly, warm welcome by Sandro, his parents, wife and sister, even though we booked absolutely last minute
The beautiful views on the green hills, the little church tower and the sound of its bells
The beautiful furnishing of the rooms, and everything handy and clean as well
The uncomplicated way, in which we could extend our stay
The cute bed linen
Sandro, also many thanks for the restaurant recommendation (Via dell'Orto!) and bringing us the hiking leaflets.
Highly recommended! Sandro speaks besides English also German, compliments!
We hope to come back, arrivederci!

We loved staying at The Millhouse- Molino di Nelle. It was quiet and secluded and right next to a river. The children could play and be loud without disturbing anyone. This was one of my husband's favourite places in all of Italy as it was away from the crowds and amongst the trees. There was a lovely path through the forest that I jogged along a couple of times and a fireplace next to the river that we enjoyed sitting around. There is a little area in the sitting room set up for young children with a sweet little table and chairs and some toys and colouring books. This made the children feel at home at once. Sandro, his sister and their mother were very warm and welcoming and Sandro was very generous with his time and kindly introduced my Cheese-making husband to some local cheese makers. We loved the area around the villa too. We celebrated our youngest son's 2nd birthday in the tiny church playground in the nook of a hairpin turn on the mountain road just below Barbicaio- it is incredibly picturesque in this region and we enjoyed our time there immensely. The pool at Barbicaio has incredible views. This place is run by a lovely family providing accommodation which is excellent value for money in a beautiful location.
