Make a holiday apartment in Pistoia your home away from home

The province of Pistoia is in the heart of Tuscany’s beautiful countryside, very close to Florence, Lucca and Siena. Although the town's historic attractions aren’t as famous as those of its near neighbours, they are nonetheless architectural and important masterpieces, like the Basilica of the Madonna dell'Umiltà and its dome. The town's ancient plazas are comparable in beauty to any other in Tuscany, and for outdoor types, the Pistoia Mountains have world-famous ski resorts and excellent hiking trails.

For the visitor who wants the creature comforts of home while on their travels, HomeAway has a wonderful range of holiday apartments in the Pistoia area. Whether holidaymakers desire to be near ski resorts, the countryside, the main town or ancient villages, there are holiday properties in every type of location. All are fully furnished and equipped with all mod cons, and some feature swimming pools, gardens and patio areas. Pistoia area holiday villas are just as sumptuous, and some come with luxuries such as saunas and Jacuzzis.

Things to do

-Historic monuments: To visit Pistoia’s old town is to take a journey back in time with its ancient churches and palaces. The green and white marble exterior of the Church of San Giovanni Fuorcivitas is an eye-catching sight and inside are some lovely frescoes and a pulpit that dates back to the 13th century. The fortified residence of the Palazzo dei Vescovi (""Bishops' Palace"") dates back to the 11th century and the Tower of Catilina is from the Middle Ages.

-Festivals: Every year on July 25, Pistoia lays on a spectacular medieval festival – first mentioned in a chronicle from the year 1300. Also in July is the Pistoia Festival, a cultural extravaganza of music, film and literature with open-air operas and movie screenings. August heralds the Feast of St. Bartholomew which dates to the 15th century, and sees children anointed on their foreheads. If planning to attend an event, it is advised to book Pistoia area holiday villas in advance.

-Winter sports: Close to Pistoia are the Pistoia Mountains, offering beautiful scenery and world-class skiing and snowboarding. Some of the best slopes in the Pistoia Apennines can be found at Abetone and Cutigliano, where HomeAway has a further selection of suitable holiday homes. There are also a number of hiking trails in the mountains that can be navigated all year round.

-Cuisine: Tuscans have a deep love and respect for their food, and this is evident in the restaurants of Pistoia. There are lots of local delicacies to choose from which include fruits and Pecorino cheese from the Pistoia Mountains. The food is typically rustic, and even stale bread forms the basis of many dishes such as panzanella (bread soup). Many meals are accompanied by a deliciously perfumed olive oil.

Weather in Pistoia

The weather in Pistoia is pleasingly mild, so visitors will find walking around the historic sites a comfortable experience – summer or winter. The average annual temperature in Pistoia is 14.1°C with a summer peak in July of 29°C. In January the average temperature is 5°C. Snow is not unusual in the winter.

Travel to Pistoia

Pistoia is an easy place to get to, especially by car as there's an autostrada between Pisa and Florence. The two nearest airports are Florence (40 kilometres) and Pisa (75 kilometres) and if visitors decide to take public transport from the airport to holiday apartments in the Pistoia area, there's a good rail connection on the Pisa-to-Florence line.

We were a group of 10 people and had more than enough space for each of us. The house itself offered a lot of space and was well equipped with everything you need, i.e. well equipped kitchen, two living rooms, a big table inside and one outside. During the day, we fully enjoyed the sun, either on the terrace which offered a great view over Pescia, or at the pool area. Speaking of pool, we loved spending time there, reading books, taking a swim or playing waterball. We also did a few trips, e.g. to Pisa and Lucca, which is approx. one-hour drive. We also made it to Siena, which is a two-hour drive. Overall, the location of the house is pretty good. Also, the small town Pescia offers everything you need: lots of supermarkets (coop, lidl, esselunga, ..), gelaterias, restaurants, banks etc. The communication with Jo was excellent, I always received prompt replies. And Paul, the house manager, was very friendly and helpful. The only negative thing (if you can say so), is the really steep and narrow street leading to the house. However, after the first time you get used to it and it’s even fun driving up there and getting better ;-) And the good thing is that there are almost no houses surrounding you, so it’s really calm and perfect to relax. Overall, it was the perfect tuscany holiday and we will definitely come back some times!!

The weather was perfect and the position in the hills ensured that it wasn't too hot or stuffy at night. There had been a problem with the plumbing when we arrived but Fausto ensured that all was put right as soon as possible and could not have been more friendly or helpful. The house is well-equipped and everything is in good working order. The local town, Pescia, is pretty but not particularly touristy. We visited Lucca and Florence but spent many hours enjoying the house and the pool, which was fantastic..
