“Le Pache” is a part of a characteristic stone house in Tuscan style located in Lanciole (at 650m above the sea level), which is a little, tiny village in the area of the Svizzera Pesciatina. This mountain area, which owes this name to a Swiss tourist who came here in the 18th cent., comprises an impressive landscape covered by chestnut trees and dotted with 10 old hamlets, where time has apparently stopped. Once that you have driven past the centre of Pescia, you just follow the road by the river side which winds uphill for several miles. Along the road you will meet, one after the other, these little hilltop hamlets.
The quietness and peacefulness of this place makes it ideal for those who wish to spend a relaxing holiday in close contact with nature: here you will have the chance of taking beautiful walks in the countryside, or discover the little hilltop hamlets of the area and taste their local products. Among these, it is worth mentioning the beans of Sorana which are the base of many local specialties.
The house has a beautiful, well kept and partly-fenced garden with a lovely pergola with a table, chairs and barbecue for dining al fresco. Gorgeous views onto surrounding hills and the hamlet of Pontito. On the back of the garden there is a beautiful, partly in-ground pool (6m x 3m, depth 1,20 m), equipped with sun-lounges, sun umbrella, table and chairs.
