“The Holiday Farm” The Old Farmhouse .
The holiday farm consists of an old farmhouse next to the historic villa where Antonio Pacinotti, the inventor of the dynamo, used to spend his summer holidays.
Accommodation is provided in four comfortable apartments with period furniture, which will welcome you with a warm atmosphere of long ago. You will be immersed in the quiet of a centuries-old olive grove cultivated with ecological methods and will have the opportunity to go for walks in the woods, or else go sightseeing either in the town of Pistoia, which lies at the foot of the hill, or in other art cities of Tuscany.
Our apartments have been refurbished with eco-friendly criteria and materials and one of them is suitable for disabled people.
Your children, and also your pets , will be welcome .
"Our Welcome" Self-catering Accommodation
The Villa Pacinotti holiday farm offers four independent apartments for self-catering accommodation. All the apartments are fully furnished and fully equipped, and each one has got a large sitting-room and kitchen, one or two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. Each apartment can accommodate 2, 3, or 4 people, so we can host up to a maximum of 12 adults and 4/5 children in extra beds.
“Science” dinamo ... and solar energy
Antonio Pacinotti is well known as the inventor of the dynamo, but very few people know that he also carried out research and conducted experiments about the use of solar heat as a source of energy.
Some of these experiments were conducted in the historic Villa di Caloria (next to our holiday farm), where the Pacinotti family used to spend their holidays.
