“Lovely apartment in great location”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is a lovely, well-appointed , bright, comfortable and clean flat which more than lives up to the photographs and description. It is on the first floor (30 steps) without a lift. Its main advantage, however is its wonderful location , right in the middle of the three inter-linking squares that make up the heart of the old town of Pistoia. From the living room window you look down onto the squares where there are fruit markets by day and lively bars and restaurants in the evening. However the flat itself is very quiet and peaceful, certainly with the windows closed. On Wednesday and Saturday morning you can step out your door into the middle of a huge market which fills the centre of town. Just around the corner is the Piazza del Duomo which has a beautiful cathedral and Baptistry and is the location for many events. Pistoia is a beautiful little town with lots of interest for art and architecture lovers and plenty of good bars and restaurants. Titti picked us up at the train station and was very helpful and easily contactable during our stay. The station is about a 15 minute walk from the apartment or you can get a local bus from behind the Duomo. There are frequent trains in several directions. We took the train to Florence (40 mins) and to Prato (15 mins) and really enjoyed the latter which is an assuming town with some great artwork. It was interesting to see the surroundings of Pistoia which are covered with nurseries especially for trees. Pistoia does cater for tourists but it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Florence and feels like a real, lived-in Italian town. It is the Italian City of Culture this year so hopefully this will attract more visitors to this hidden gem of Tuscany.

“City Center Convenience”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

A clean, well-furnished, air conditioned one bedroom apartment in the center of the old city of Pistoia.

The apartment owner, Titti met us at a service station at the outskirts of town, and guided us to the free public car park located a brief walk from the apartment. She drove us and our luggage to the apartment and gave us a walking tour of local shops and restaurants in the immediate area.

We visited during Pistoia's music festival. We attended a concert in the main piazza. With the duomo as a backdrop, it's a beautiful venue.

The apartment was a great home base for day trips to Florence, Ravena, San Gimignano and towns throughout Tuscany.

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment and found Pistoia to be a hidden jewel in Tuscany.

“Super Convenient, Comfortable & Classy!”

We stayed in the Virginia apartment for a week, using Pistoia as our base for day trips to Florence (30 mins), Pisa (45 mins) San Gimignano (1 hour), Vinci and various other parts of Tuscany.

Couldn't ask for a better appointed apartment - all facilities are on hand and Titti provides a great welcome. You're also right next to the fresh food market stalls of Pistoia - and the restuarants, cafes and old town square (a hidden gem).

Not staying in bustling Florence was a real bonus - we were able to visit the city easily, but escape to a more sedate 'home' location.

I highly recommend - you won't be sorry!
