Located at the foot of the mountains of Pistoia, surrounded by 30.000 square meters of trees with typical olive-grove from Tuscan hills, here it is the ancient "Villa Cappugi", built at the end of the XVII century. It has the name of "Cappugi" a noble family of Pistoia that built the country-house and owned it till 1987, year in which it was bought by the actual owner, who has rebuilt it, restoring its original beauty: the "cotto fiorentino" floors, the vaulted ceiling with fresco paintings, the attic with secular beams at sight. The main hall in the ground-floor is used for special events like congresses, cultural events, banquets, dance parties. Still in the ground floor the bar (which doesn't serve alcoholics) serves both the country-side and external sport facilities. Next to the bar, a little hall where breakfast is served, with an ancient marble fireplace perfectly preserved. On the opposite side, still next to the bar, a little hall with a big rustic fireplace refined with beams and a big television featuring satellite channels. The ancient hayloft and the farmhouse adjoining to the country-house is now an elegant and comfortable restaurant, rebuilt preserving the original architecture.
