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.
The cottage is perfectly located for a base to your Tuscan holiday. It is so well located in fact, that it is close enough to a very well serviced town and far enough that your peace and tranquillity is assured.
The cottage is simply fabulous with everything that you need to spend a perfect week / fortnight in beautiful Tuscany. There are all the creature comforts you need but on top of that there is the fabulous tranquillity and peace from the fantastic countryside that surrounds you.
The owners Father and Mother live in the adjoining property ( certain times of the year) and they are simply wonderful sources of local knowledge and history. I can happily remember the fabulous mornings sharing a coffee and the time of day just chatting with both of these lovely people, all of us happy just sharing the wonderful experience of a fabulous Tuscan morning.
There are no negatives from our stay in this wonderful place and I am sure that my family and I will return to sample this little piece of paradise again.
Thanks to the owner, his wonderful parents and Homeaway for making our holiday such a great success.
