Vista su Colle di Buggiano in Provincia di Pistoia ToscanaAntica Casa Le Rondini is a small B&B situated at Colle di Buggiano, a charming small fortified village, dating back to the year 1238, with narrow alleys and typical brick-stone palazzos, above Montecatini Terme (3 km).
The village lies on the top of a green hill, covered with olive trees, between Florence and Lucca.
Before Fulvia, the charming owner of the bed and breakfast, was teaching physical education in Venice, until she met during a holiday in the Middle East her husband Carlo, architect at Montecatini Terme.

For three long years, Carlo and Fulvia were going to and fro between Montecatini and Venice, until both were tired and Fulvia decided to move to a Montecatini Terme.
B&B Antica Casa Le Rondini - Colle di Buggiano Pistoia ToscanaLooking for a home, they found this marvellous palace of the 16th century at Colle di Buggiano with a small garden and lemon house in front. In 1999 the building was restored and during the works could be recuperated the original architectural elements of the building: terracotta tiled floors, beamed ceilings, decorations of the local pietra serena sandstone.

The frescoes (dated end 18th century) discovered during the restoration works were subject to a painstaking and preservative restoration. Today, Fulvia lives, together with her husband and son Federico in one part of the house. In the other, there is on the ground floor a charming lounge with cosy sofas, antique paintings and furniture.

Both, guests and inhabitants have to leave the car outside the village. This might be also the reason why Colle di Buggiano has still preserved the medieval atmosphere. Only three main alleys pass through the village with its approximately 70 inhabitants.
