The origin of this inn goes far back into the past, when pilgrims from Northern Europe made a stop here along the banks of the river Rino before they would continue their journey to Rome. In 2010 we restored this building full of history and made it a cozy and comfortable place, but retaining the charm. It is situated in the green valley of the Rino, about 1 km from the village of Ponte Petri and 20 minutes from the city of Pistoia, an ideal location to explore the natural beauty of the Apennines, in winter try the ski slopes of Abetone or any time of the year you can go to Florence, Lucca and other cities or just simply drive around to explore Tuscany.

During the summer, the region offers a rich program of cultural and entertainment events such as music festivals and folklore, food festivals and medieval festivals. The house is about 20 minutes from Florence and Lucca, Pistoia has much to offer in terms of history, art, monuments, folk traditions, nature and gastronomic specialties. In the picturesque streets of the old town you will find many good restaurants that authentic dishes of Tuscan tradition at fairer prices than most with other Italian cities.
