Lovely home for 2. Enjoy olive trees and forest view, out of romantic arch windows. Taste a long shower with solar panel hot water. Play with full kitchen. Taste your dinner on the terrace in front of your door. Sleep deep in the peace of our valley.
On Tuscany hills, among the old olive trees and the forest of a green silent valley overlooking the town of Pistoia, you can enjoy a very good lodging in an old farmer house dated 1700’. The house has just been refurbished, taking care to preserve ancient outside walls made with stones and bricks, and to renew inside with the contemporary comfort you need for a relaxing holiday.
You’ll sleep in the quite atmosphere of a little old farmer village and from your windows you’ll enjoy the view of the olive fields, of the “one thousand years old” church and bells tower, of forests climbing to the top of surrounding hills; and of Pistoia city more far away at the bottom of the valley.
Your apartment has a detached entrance and proposes also inside the seduction of traditional Tuscany materials: walnut wood, furnace bricks, white ceramics, natural stones, antique furnitures.
This apartment is a little Penthouse, with big windows, a lot of light, nice view, romantic atmosphere, perfect for a couple.
At garden level you’ll enter a living room with a kitchen side, well eqipped to cook your food.
A short stair reaches the bath room, very comfortable with a wide shower. Hot water is produced with solar panel, helped with modern condensation gas heater, when necessary.
Few more steps access to the bedroom: comfortable double bed in the center of wood and stones room, and two Windows watching out to olive trees fields and the forest on the opposite side of our valley.
Sheets and towel and table dressing will be provided for you. Ordinary final clean is included in prices. Discounts available for longer than 4 nights stay.
At Podere Uliveto you can relax on terrace or walk in the olive fields and in the forests, or reach the local country reastaurant on top of the valley. Ladies can decide to learn the basic of Tuscan embroidery by our neighbour who is a proper teacher... Or you can visit the lovely historic city center of Pistoia town, 15min away from your door by car. Florence city is one hour away, if you use the near train station and forget about car traffic. In less than one hour you can reach the 2000m high mountains of Abetone, or the seaside of Viareggio, or other interesting towns like Pescia, Lucca, Pisa... Our location allows you to choose many other famous historic towns like Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Arezzo that you’ll be able to visit in daily excursions with your car.
If you don't like to drive a car, you can arrive to Uliveto with public bus from Pistoia.

Just out of the door, you can enjoy a little green area with flowers and flavouring herbs. Few steps out of the door you can have breakfast or dinner or drink and relax on the panoramic terrace, and maybe chat with the guests of the other apartment. You can walk in the near woods or in our farm fields and get season fruits or help olives picking in November...
Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to suggest nice locations to visit in Tuscany, how to discover Pistoia historic center squares and churchs and museums. Or to give train timetables to reach Florence center in one hour from your door. And I like to chat about olive trees and good oil we produce...
We are in the center of Tuscany intersting area.
Pistoia is not a "full of tourist" town, but it has a great history, and beautiful ancient square, churches and buildings. Florence city center is 1 hour from our door if using the train. Pisa and Lucca and other historic towns can be visited in one day. Many seaside beaches are 1 hour drive away. Mounts and forests of Abetone are also 1 hour drive away...
100m out of your door there is a bus stop to Pistoia town: not a rich timetable, but late night after a good drink, you can call a taxi and come back home spending some 25Euros.
Other Things to Note
Ask for any tourist guide or maps or train timetable you could need.
Or for a simple suggestion "what to see in our area"....
No pet in our house please.
Smoking is not allowed inside the apartment.
You can smoke outdoor or in the panoramic terrace.
Obviously the view from this place is amazing and the area is beautiful. I will add some practical information. The house is very well appointed, beautiful and comfortable. The bed is probably the most comfortable I have ever slept on while traveling, and the bedroom has real curtains so you are able to block the sun if you want to sleep in. The kitchen is stocked with pretty much everything you need including moka pot and coffee. The photos exactly represent the place. Giorgio was very responsive and communication was excellent. I highly recommend this place!
Me and Peeter spent 9 days in Uliveto in October and our stay there was wonderful. The place was exatly as described and shown in the photos - very romantic with beautiful thought-through vintage details, yet cosy and welcoming. We loved the views from the terrace and the silence that fell upon the place at night. Everything we wanted to see in Tuscany was in near vicinity and Giorgio was very helpful with providing us with maps, brochures and suggestions about where to go. He was the most friendly and at the same time the most descreet host who makes the very best olive oil :). We were truly glad for having the opportunity to discover a place like this and we would go back there any time.
Our stay at Uliveto was lovely. The apartment was exactly how the pictures portrayed; it was clean, comfortable and very beautiful. The view from our bedroom window was amazing and being able to sit on the balcony overlooking Pistoia town was our favourite aspect of the holiday. Giorgio was an excellent host; he offered to drive us to the shops and the station as we had not hired a car and he gave us lots of information about the local area so that we could make the most of our stay. We can't wait to go back next year so that we can visit Florence which is not far from Uliveto. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
Giorgio y Cristina son excelentes anfitriones, se ocuparon en hacernos "sentir en casa", el lugar es my hermoso y es tal cual lo muestran las fotos
Simply outstanding accommodation.
Awesome view of Tocsin hills and over Pistoia. We'll come again.
We stayed 5 days at Giorgio's place and it was a wonderful experience. The apartment is fully renovated and it has everything you need. Everything was very clean and new. The terrace has great views of the city and the valley; we enjoyed having breakfast and dinner there!
The location is about 10 min. from Pistoia with the car. It is perfect if you prefer stay away from the city and enjoy the nature. Pistoia is a very nice city, without too many tourists and great places for dinner. Other cities such as Lucca, Pisa and Florence are within close reach by car.
Giorgio was a great host. He gave us plenty of tips to visit and he offered us fresh fruit and olive oil from his garden. We enjoyed staying here and we would recommend it to everyone!
Staying at Uliveto has been an awesome experience! From the minute we arrived we felt welcomed! Giorgio was quite helpful with everything we might needed, from directions to suggestions as where to go and where to eat! Christina was also very kind and when we arrived she brought us fresh fruits from their orchards! The house itself was in excellent condition and every bit as we expected it! It had everything someone might need for a comfortable stay.. Definately Uliveto was the best place as to have for our base during our exploration of Tuscany!

I'm Giorgio, retired engineer, now in love with olive trees and with my old house in Tuscany.
