"You only live once and that time must be special"

he farm was born in Tuscany as a simple form of free welcome by the farmers, who very generously hosted people from the city and made them participate in their activities.

Today the Bed & Breakfast POGGIO DESTO offers the pleasure of a simple but fascinating life and the direct contact with nature.

Where Poggio Desto was born

Located on the slopes of Montalbano at a height of 164 meters above sea level, in the village of Montemagno dating back to the year 1150, the residence Poggio Desto offers its guests an incomparable natural panorama that ranges from the cities of Pistoia and Prato to get to the magical Florence of which in some days we can see with the naked eye the bell tower of Giotto and the dome of the cathedral of Florence Brunelleschi.

All around the chain of the Apennines with the view of famous peaks such as Abetone and Cimone, behind the green Montalbano.

Strategically Located

Love for tranquility and nature are essential conditions for this type of holiday. In Poggio Desto you breathe a special atmosphere of bliss, well-being and serenity, unique and unobtainable, thanks to the happy location in the green and also the accommodation in very comfortable and spacious rooms.

The geographical position allows you to reach in a short time (wanting also by train from Pistoia) the cities of Florence and Lucca, and with a few tens of minutes more by car Siena and Pisa with the Tuscan coast. Very close to the spa towns of Monsummano and Montecatini.

The Pool

Our panoramic swimming pool is immersed in a scenery of rare beauty, in the midst of olive trees and mountains covered with woods.

You will look at the plain that goes from Pistoia to Florence and you will seem to fly at low altitude, so much is the view you can enjoy.

In the evening after sunset, even more magic with all the lights that shine, while you will be sitting for a drink by the pool, the use of which is free for guests of the B & B.

Leonardo da Vinci e The Montalbano

The hilly area of Montalbano, made famous by the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci where it happens to recognize its profiles, extends for about 16,000 hectares between the provinces of Florence, Prato and Pistoia. Although the territory has been inhabited since prehistoric times and still retains traces of Etruscan settlements and numerous medieval castles, the presence of man has not damaged this beautiful natural environment, Indeed, thanks to the cultivation of vines and olive trees has helped to create a sort of tidy "countryside-garden" typical of the Tuscan landscape.
Today a destination for outdoor tourists, the Montalbano is crossed by a dense network of hiking and cycling paths that allow you to reach the ridge at about 600mt above sea level and to explore every corner of this extraordinary natural area in the heart of Tuscany.For the less adventurous and, above all, for lovers of food and wine, we recommend the Strada dell'olio e del vino del Montalbano "Colline di Leonardo" an itinerary to follow by car or motorbike (signposted with brown road signs)which touches all the municipalities of this territory and suggests valuable ideas for the discovery of the valuable local products.
