Location

Villa Roncovisi is in an area called the Valdinevole, as yet unruined by mass tourism, and presenting all the characteristic natural and artistic aspects of the Tuscan countryside.
The villa is most strategically placed: away from the chaos of the cities but with easy access to Tuscan "musts". In fact, 95% of the symbolic Tuscan landmarks can be reached within an hour and a half by car.
Within a range of 15/20 mins. by car there are many places of interest to visit - the Giusti Grottos with their hot thermal baths, the Monsummano caves, the Pistoia hills and mountains (skiing in the Winter), the Svizzera Pesciatina, innumerable Romanic churches, the Fucecchio swamplands (of great interest for the local flora and fauna).
