Pian de’ Noci is a wonderful farmhouse of the XVI century. It’s located on a plateau, where you have a fantastic view of the typical Chianti landscape. The Tuscan hills are covered with vineyards and olive trees. Nice villas rise in this territory, where in the past noble families of Florence used to owe enormous properties and used to spend their holidays.
The farmhouse, which underwent a renovation in 2011, is placed near Mercatale Val di Pesa – 500 m apart. In this town you will find different food shops, a pharmacy, a church, bus-stops, banks, restaurants, bars area in front of the villa. Pian de’ Noci is surrounded by a large green area, full of flowers and shrubs typical of the “macchia” shrubland in the Mediterranean region. On the grass there’s an infinity pool (7,50 x 15,00 m.) and in the green area you also find a barbecue. Every apartment is equipped with a private green area with garden furniture. Pian de’ Noci consists of 5 apartments that can host up to 21 people.
Every apartment has free air conditioning and heating at your disposal, in addition to a wireless connection indoor and outdoor. Every apartment offers fully-equipped kitchen, ironing board and iron, American coffee machine, toaster, microwave oven, satellite TV with Astra and Hot Bird channels. Our guests can buy excellent wines and extra virgin olive oils, which are produced by the owners of the farmhouse. You can also book tastings, lunches or dinners directly in Pian de’ Noci.

The name “Pian de’ Noci” tells us that in the past here there were many walnuts. Today you can see some of these trees, which were considered “magic” plants for the healers of the countryside. Now you can still feel the magic of this place, full of positive energy. During the renovation works we tried to keep the original spaces of the farmhouse, without reducing the size of the rooms. The best masters of the Chianti region contributed to recover the original materials that had been used in the construction of the building. Also the furniture and the drapery were made by able artisans, who gave a different aspect to each room of the villa.
The farmhouse has two apartments of 100 m² on the ground floor, each one has two double rooms, two bathrooms with shower, living room with double bed sofa, large and fully equipped kitchen.
It’s 21 km far from Florence, 45 km from Siena, 75 km from Pisa. The Firenze-Siena highway entrance is very close to S.Casciano, 10 km far from the farmhouse, and the A1-highway exit is 15 km far from the villa (Firenze – Impruneta). Its location allows our guests to reach the most beautiful places that have an historical and artistic importance in Tuscany for short excursions – one day at the longest. You can arrive to the farmhouse through a short white path which starts from the main road and brings to the parking.
