The villa was great, very spacious, and with every comfort and convenience. The view from the property is also amazing, with the valley of the Arno stretching for miles in front of you. You can see the Duomo of Florence in the distance. There is a pleasant terrace garden which looks over this view, with shady spots under trees, and herbs for cooking. Gabriele, the owner, must be the best villa owner in Italy, he was so helpful to us. We arrived (very slowly) from the UK in our historic Land Rover, and with some engine problems. Gabriele helped us with talking to the Car Garage at the bottom of the driveway (I can also reccommend this garage to anyone, Autofficina Autosoccorso, run by Allesio, they work on everything from 1925 Bugattis! 1950s Fiat 500s, Lancia Deltas, modern vehicles, and ancient Land Rovers!). Gabriele lent us his car! Arranged for our extended stay while the repair was done. He could not have been nicer or more helpful to us. Alastair Binnie
Spent four nights in Chiara's wonderful & very spacious home on two main levels in Le Piastre, a little village near the town of Pistoia.
The house had everything that we needed - comfortable beds, great bathroom facilities, a well equipped & large kitchen, as well as two wonderful sitting rooms.
In the village we could obtain the basics such as milk, bread & a morning coffee.
If you want to make full use of the well equipped kitchen, then there is a large supermarket in Pistoia.
For the 3 full days that we were there we spent a day in Pistoia, a day in Florence ( by train from Pistoia is very easy), & our final day visiting several villages/towns near Le Piastre.
Chiara was quick & efficient in providing us with any advice or information that we needed.
