Farmhouse Malva, Candeglia

» Click here for Availability Request

The main home was purchased some years ago and was to be a private estate home. Later on we decided to restructure the old buildings, being able to receive guests with which to share the contact with nature and the love for the history and its traditions.

This magical place is situated on one of the Pistoia hills (m 416 above sea level) in a panoramic zone full of sun and encircled by olive groves and wild forests. Here it is possible to relax and easily access the most beautiful art cities of Tuscany.

It is said that on the hill of Montecuccoli one can hear the frequent the song of the “Cuculo”, and there rises the “Pieve di Valdibure”, an example of Romanesque Church in the shape of a latin cross built between 1100 and 1200 ad. The information concerning the reason of the construction of the unique church is still encircled by mystery.

The freestanding bell tower is placed in front of the main building and is thought to have been a military tower for sight over the valley for defence in the past.

According to a popular legend one says that the Church had been built by the noble lady Matilde of Canossa whom usually passed by these places in order to reach the Abbey to Teone, where it seems she had her personal confessor, a young abbot.

From the Pieve of Valdibure various roads depart, one of these is the road of the courts (Via delle Corti), anciently travelled by pilgrims who passed in order to reach Trebbio, Abbey to Teone and to continue then for Santiago Campostela, on the way they stopped to rest at “La Corte”. One of the buildings is believed to have been an inn where travellers could rest.
The testimonies of the ancient building can be seen in the coat of arms of the Knights of the Cross of Malta and that of the family of the “Pazzi” of Florence, who owned various properties in the area.

Basil is the smallest room; it is approached through an entrance living area which then becomes part of the open plan kitchen. This space is completed by a second bedroom with bathroom and shower.
Basil and Malva can be combined into one single unit.

Lavender is on the ground floor level and has a wide open kitchen with marble top and baking corner. The room had a double bed and a further single bed possibility, bathrooms with shower. The adjacent veranda is lovely for fresh air and sitting outside.

Malva has the most attractive view onto the town of Pistoia, the swimming pool and the green garden. This apartment has a large entrance area, a master double bedroom with additional bed, kitchen, lounge area and a spacious bathroom.
Basil and Malva can be combined into one single unit.

Every apartment is equipped with an independent heating control system.
The linens for the bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms are changed weekly.
Small or medium sized dogs are allowed.

We produce olive-oil, fruit and vegetables. In order to taste the true flavours of Tuscany, we suggest enjoying the combination of food and wines.
