Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious traditional, but very tastefully presented, accommodation set in rural position near Pistoria. Use of shared swimming pool and grounds with amazing far reaching views. We had a fantastic break here, and really enjoyed walking through the local countryside and exploring nearly cities like Lucca and Florence. Highly Recommended. Thank you to Agatha and Marco.

Hidden in the valleys...

  • 5 of 5

You might want to visit Toscana and you might want to find the perfect location between big cities and have a bit of rest in the country as well. We found it! It is in Marco and Agatha's property; a breath-taking view, a nice pool, a beautiful 17th century villa.

Our visit lasted for 3 weeks, but we could have easily stayed longer. The apartment is well-equipped, very clean, just the right size for 2 people. Agatha and Marco are also always on hand for any help or a little chat.

The house is situated in the hills above Pistoia, reachable within 10 minutes by car. After parking at San Giorgio (2€/day!!) you can walk to the train station, from where Pisa, Lucca, Firenze & Siena are easy and cheap to reach. Pistoia itself seems a little city, but there is plenty to eat and the evenings are very lively.

We would highly recommend this place as a base to visit Toscana! Thanks again!

Stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

Arrived in mid august for a weeks break as a couple. Absolutely delighted to see the villa as we came up the drive. Absolutely stunning views over the Tuscan countryside. We were greeted by our lovely hosts and shown to our room. It was just what we needed, lots of space, spotlessly clean and a lovely kitchenette to prepare our own meals. The pool was large, with lots of space for sunbathing....and it was hot. The church bells chiming in the hills made it all the more authentic! Pistoia is lovely with a nice square to enjoy a gelato. This location is close enough to Florence to visit for a day trip and also Lucca (main square beautiful at night) and Livorno. Marco and Agatha invited us to a lovely meal at their side of the house and gave us a tour making us feel very welcome (you must try his homemade grappa !) I can't fault this holiday or location if you are looking for a cultured and relaxing holiday. Lovely hosts in an absolutely beautiful location and a great place to explore.
