Very close to the small village of Masotti in the municipality of Serravalle Pistoiese, surrounded by a 5,500 square meter park, lies the Villa Il Salicone. The three-storey manor-house is run by the sisters Ilaria and Nicoletta, the descendants of the noble Niccoli family. It has recently been completely restored and is now available for holiday guests, who will soon be charmed by the charm of the ancient villa.
In the large lobby on the ground floor is a beautiful stone staircase that leads up to the upper floors. A TV room and a separate suite, the old kitchen, which now serves as a breakfast room, the new kitchen, which can accommodate up to 20 people, a tavern with exit to the romantic courtyard and the entrance to the wine cellar are located on the ground floor.
On the first floor, also called "Nobel Etage", there are several large and smaller festive and dining rooms, such as the particularly beautiful "Salone della Caccia" (Hunting Salon).
On the second floor there is the splendid salon "Sala della Musica" (Music Hall), dedicated to the tenor Egisto Niccoli, one of the ancestors of the noble family. On the south side are the two generous Siutes "Elvira" and "Contessa D'Amalfi". The other three bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, are located on the north side of the building. The floors and wall coverings of the bathrooms are made of travertine.
In the park in front of the villa are tables and chairs where guests can dine in the shade of the old trees. The sun loungers and deckchairs can be placed as required in the sunny or shady corners of the green areas.
The pool (12 x 6 m), which is available to the holiday guests of the villa for exclusive use, is located just outside the park on a hill at the edge of the forest. Here, guests can sunbathe undisturbed and refreshed in the water on hot summer days.
