Spacious, historic villa with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

The villa owner Raffaello greeted us very warmly even though our flight to Pisa had been delayed and we arrived after midnight. Some provisions had been left in the kitchen to tide us over until we could get to a supermarket. Raffaello took one of us down the hill to show us a local bread shop on the first morning to buy croissants and rolls. One day he generously bought us some speciality breads. Raffaello and his wife are around much of the time, very helpful but not intrusive. Their spaniel Oscar is charming - inquisitive but shy!

The rooms are spacious and the stairs fairly steep.

We stayed in July and it was exceptionally warm, frequently 37 degrees, and we valued the fans which had been placed in the bedrooms. Mosquitoes were prevalent so do take plenty of mosquito repellent at this time of year. Sitting on the terrace overlooking Pistoia whilst eating our breakfast or supper was very nice. You definitely need a car if renting this villa as it is too far out of town to walk in. However, we recommend the train for a day trip to Florence as there is so little parking there.

Being a family of 7 in total we had a greatntime. The house is big enough and has places cool enough to escape the heat. The pool is simple but good fun. The host family is extemely nice and very helpfull.
