Yo quería conocer varias ciudades de la Toscana, y tomar la decisión de hacer base en Pistoia fue una gran elección; y mas haber alquilado este departamento. Tiene estacionamiento privado (no es bajo techo), el departamento es muy amplio y cómodo. Tiene todos los utensilios necesarios para vivir, está muy bien equipado tanto en muebles como en utensilios de cocina; asique pueden cocinarse sin problemas.
Lo mejor de todo es la ubicación: a solo 2 cuadras de la estación de trenes. Para nosotros que la idea era ir a varias ciudades esto fue muy bueno.
Appartamento come da foto, dotato di 2 piscine, wi fi, parcheggio privato.
La posizione è ottima, a pochi minuti a piedi dal centro storico di Pistoia.
La dotazione è completa, c'è anche un cesto di benvenuto con i prodotti necessari a preparare la colazione.
Massimo, il proprietario, è sempre disponibile e gentile.
Lo consiglio a tutti!!!!!
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Miranda Résidence. L'appartement était calme, propre, très bien équipé avec batterie de cuisine, fer à repasser, savon, sêche-cheveux, torchons, drap de bain en quantité largement suffisante...
La climatisation était un vrai plus ainsi que la machine à laver, le parking fermé et sous vidéo surveillance et bien sûr la piscine pour se rafraîchir et amuser les enfants!
A 5 mn à pied de la gare menant à Luca ou Florence et à deux pas du centre historique de Pistoia et des commerces.
Nous recommandons vivement cette location. Massimo a de délicates attentions pour ses résidents. Un grand merci à lui!
