"Le Panche", an Inn since the Middle Ages In a Land Rich in Nature, Art and Traditions.
We decided to call it "Old Inn Le Panche" to emphasise the building's history that is lost in ancient times. We wanted to make it cosy, comfortable and to maintain its original character using traditional materials and ancient furniture.
A wide parking and a large garden provide access to the "Locanda" which consists of a very much appreciated restaurant, on the ground floor, and our 4 charming mini-apartments on the first floor.
The Inn is located on the Tuscan Apennines, 17km North of Pistoia in a lush valley where the River Reno runs parallel to the State Road 66, which connects Florence to the area's tourist destinations, among which the winter resort of Abetone stands out. Because of its position, our Inn may be an ideal base for tourists interested in visiting the art cities of Tuscany as well as for nature lovers, aiming to discover the Apennines, in all seasons.
