ITALY, TUSCANY, PISTOIA, BORGO DI BUGGIANO
At the gates of the ancient Borgo di Buggiano in the enchanting Valdinievole in the province of Pistoia, set in a partially hilly area with well-preserved medieval views, stands this wonderful property of about 500 square meters with its private park of over 5000 square meters plus an annex. The local economy, thanks to the beauty of the area, is rediscovering the potential of rural and agritourism activities, and the hills of the Buggiano area are literally covered with olives.

The view enjoyed from the property leaves you speechless, the gaze reaches far away contemplating the medieval villages and the rolling hills planted with olive trees.
