Amongst the verdant Montalbano hills of Tuscany - a stunning landscape that typifies the region, is the small hamlet of Cantagrillo. Set amongst ancient woods, delightful olive groves and Chianti vineyards, you'll be spoilt with incredible views of the hills where the great Leonardo Da Vinci was born. With a couple of villages close by, you'll find shops to cater for all your daily needs, and restaurants to experience the local Tuscan cuisine - rustic bean soups, local cheeses and tasty salamis. And to venture slightly further afield, just 7km away is the pretty town of Pistoia. With a stunning centro storico, attractive Pizza del Duomo and fantastic market on a Wednesday and Saturday morning, there's also Pistoia Zoo and a Pinocchio park in nearby Collodi. And there's more. Just a half-hour drive from Florence and an hour from Pisa, not only are you well situated for the airports, but also well placed to visit these Tuscan jewels for a splendid day trip. A perfect location, Cantagrillo is the perfect base for exploring one of Italy's most beautiful regions.
