“Amazing - go there now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

We were a mix of two families in two of the house rooms, and the holiday was beautiful. Sandro and Lidia cooked for us twice, and it was superb.
The pool is lovely, great views over the area, and the whole accom set up was great. It is also a good base to go to Lucca, a beautiful town, and of course to Florence (go by train from Pistoia, much simpler than driving).
Pistoia itself is nice but unremarkable, one or two nice restaurants, but lacks the charm of Lucca, or Pisa, or further south to places like Siena and Arezzo.

“Wow, perfect place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

If you want a quiet and lovely place to stay, this is the perfect place! We were 4 people staying in Villa San Simone and we had the best time.

Wonderful view on the region of Pistoia, magnificient pool super clean and while you are having a swim, you can have a perfect view of the region. The owner Sandro is speaking well in French and English and he helped us a lot during our stay.

If you have a chance, ask his wife to cook a dinner meal for you and you will be impress! This is the best food I ever had in my entire trip in tuscany!

The service is perfect, the bed are comfortable plus you have a kitchen to cook yourself...

The villa is a little bit out of city, in the hill but if you have a car, it takes 10 minutes to go downtown or there is a bus just down the villa if you don't want to take the car all the time.

I would recomment this place to everyone!
