LOCATION

Our rental houses are set in the midst of a 500-hectare (1200-acre) estate in the heart of Tuscany. It is a captivating place with lots of wildlife and various walking trails. Aside from our cows, pigs and poultry down at the farm you can expect to have nightly sightings of wild boars, crested porcupines, owls and deer. Located only 45 minutes from Pisa Galileo Airport and just over an hour from Florence Peretola Airport, the farm is in a perfect position for guests desiring to explore the nearby cities of Florence, Siena, Livorno, Lucca, and Pisa. Closer still are the charming hill towns of San Gimignano, Certaldo, Volterra and San Miniato. In under two hours, it is possible to reach the Alpi Apuane mountains, the WWF-protected beaches south of Livorno or thermal baths near Petriolo and Rapolano. The area has remained rural with many small producers of organic vegetables, livestock, cheeses and wines. Weekly markets honor the area's dedication to Slow Food and natural production.

FIND US

 

Barbialla Nuova is located in the center of Tuscany and is therefore easily reached from all the main motorways of the region. We highly recommend not using GPS as it may take you down small, bumpy dirt roads and significantly prolong your trip. These are the directions from the main cities:

 

FROM FLORENCE AIRPORT: 55 km. 1 hour drive. Follow the signs for the "superstrada" Firenze-Pisa-Livorno FI-PI-LI, direction Pisa. Exit in San Miniato. Follow the highway ramp to the right, then turn right toward San Miniato. At the roundabout take the second exit toward Pontedera. Take the next right, direction Pontedera and then, in approx 900 m, turn left for San Miniato. This road will take you to the upper village of San Miniato. Before entering the old part of the village, you will find the sign to Montaione, directing you to turn right.
Now you have to drive for a bit more than 10 km, crossing two valleys. At each of the two junctions you encounter you will turn left following signs for Montaione. Drive through the village of Corazzano and keep going until you find the white KM 6 sign, which is about 3.2 km past the village. The dirt road on your right is the entrance to our farm.
Drive on this dirt road for one kilometer. Reception is located in the first farm buildings that you come across upon entering the gate.
