I stayed here for 4 days with my mum and her Italian adult education class in late May. Lidia and Sandro were nothing but welcoming to us throughout our entire experience, and it was fantastic for us to be exposed to their beautiful Italian, since we had been banned from speaking English all weekend! We arrived quite late, but our... More

We had a wonderful stay at this ~1000 "castle" perched in the hills above Pistoia while we visited our daughter and her classmate, who were in the middle of their next-to-last clinical Physical Therapy internship at the Fondiazone di Turati in nearby Gavinana. Our apartment was well equipped with everything we needed for our 4-day visit. Lidia and Daniella also... More

I don't know where to start with this place because it was just truly amazing. Everything from the "welcome to our villa" to "see you next time" was perfect. At first I didn't really know what to expect about this place but the pictures seemed very nice and the reviews were some of the best I've seen for a villa....... More

Sandro and Lidia are wonderful hosts. Sandro attends to every detail to make sure we had a comfortable stay, such as printouts of weather forecast and recommended restaurants in the neighborhood. The chateau is tastefully designed and decorated. The garden makes possible relaxing moments during our stay.

This was a beautiful B&B on the outskirts of Pistoia. Sandro, Lidia, and Daniella were very welcoming and offered a wonderful cooking course. Sandro provided excellent suggestions that were excellent and more authentic than the regular tourist trip. It is also an excellent location for large groups or small groups. The location is close enough to Pistoia to make a... More

Excellent ratings on this B&B are not overrated. Splendid B&B castle on top of a hill, with amazing view from the room and the gardens and the infinite swimming-pool, in a warm countryside atmosphere. Lovely French speaking Italian owners, very welcoming and helpful. Historic decorated and very well furnished apartment (nothing missing in the kitchen). Very convenient and peaceful place.... More

We stayed at the Villa San Simone for a week in late June with our two children, 13 and 16, in order to attend a wedding in nearby Montecatini. The villa was a wonderful treat, perfectly located near Pistoia, spacious, cool, and delightful. We enjoyed the swimming pool in the mornings and explored nearby villages most afternoons, always happy to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa San Simone is only 5 kms from the 14th century walls of Pistoia, a charming city of art in Tuscany. It is an antique residence located on the slopes of the hills between Pistoia and Florence (30 min. to Florence, 40 min. to Lucca, 50 min. to Pisa or Viareggio, and 60 min. to Siena and the Chianti area).The villa was built at the end of the18th century on the ruins of a Romanesque church dating from 1000 a.d. and it took its name, San Simone. It is surrounded by an age-old olive grove and woods with deer and it has got a wide shady garden. San Simone offers four (six in 2011) full equipped apartments with every kind of comfort and it has been furnished with fine design and antiques. The owners, Lidia and Sandro, who live in the Villa, are two well known architects, who restored this building in order to live in; they will welcome you to share the peace, the elegance and the beauty of Tuscan architecture and landscape. Villa San Simone is not a luxury hotel nor a villa to rent as here you will not find austere concierges, immense halls and electronic door keys. On the contrary you will enjoy the quite elegance of the place, the comfortable furniture, the magnificent green of the garden and the surrounding woods, but above all the warm welcome that will make you feel at home.Villa San Simone has a large garden (1000 sqm.) shaded by centuries-old. trees. The garden is surrounded by olive groves and forests and peaceful private grounds of about 60.000 sqm., where deer and squirrels live. The large fenced garden surrounding the Villa is at complete disposal of the guests and it is equipped with tables and chairs, comfortable armchairs, chaise-longue, barbecue, ping pong table. At a lower level there is a small fenced vegetable and flower garden with lemon and orange trees. The Villa is surrounded by a large private park where it is possible to stroll along the stream and amongst the olive trees. ... more   less
