Villa Parri Residenza d’Epoca

Bed & Breakfast

A historic, family-friendly estate with elegant apartments and stepped landscaped grounds in an unusually authentic area of Tuscany


13 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


From monogrammed robes (the family were in textiles) to organic olive oils, there’s no shortage of luxury. Commissioned in the 19th century by engineer Parri, recognised by the state as a historic home, Villa Parri commands a hill six kilometres above Pistoia. The site is a glorious launch pad for Lucca, Florence and Montecatini, while Pistoia itself is a gem. Play duke and duchess amid polished antiques and stately parquet in six large apartments spread over three floors, linked by a rather grand stair (no lift!). A further two retreats, neat, bright and contemporary, wait in the single-storey dependence beyond, formerly a textiles laboratory. Rustle up your own breakfasts (there’s a little stores you can walk to) or treat yourself to a beautiful buffet in the exquisitely frescoed limonaia. You sense happy teamwork here, starting with the owners, warm, friendly and hands-on, while the smartly terraced gardens are quite something, all wisteria-draped pergolas and century-old trees, and a pool positioned for sunsets. A path leads to the forest above, so hike it. Taste the cellar’s wines, take the children to Pistoia Zoo.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Gabriele Ducceschi

  • Pistoia is the ideal launch pad to discover and enjoy important cities of art as Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano. Don't miss to visit Pistoia and its beautiful medieval square and its famous nurseries in the surrounding.
  • If you travel with kids, it's absolute nice to visit the zoo of Pistoia (one of the most important zoological park in Italy in terms of biodiversity and educational activities) and the park of Pinocchio, the famous wooden puppet.
  • If you are a wine lover, you can find at only 30-minute drive one of the best winery "Tenuta di Capezzana", where you can have a wine tour and taste the local wines. I'll be also glad to suggest other good wineries stated in the region of Chianti.
  • Don't miss authentic hidden jewels like the medieval town of Vinci (where Leonardo was born), Cutigliano (a picturesque village among the mountains) or Montecatini Terme and Montecatini Alto, two small, elegant and charming towns.
  • Pistoia Apennine Mountains offer several hiking trails and paths, amazing itineraries for walking or for mountain bikes.
  • Not far from Pistoia (50-minute drive), you can have a touch of tuscan summer at Viareggio (very cool seaside town) and Forte dei Marmi, a luxurious towns.
