“What a perfect stay. From the speedy communications before arrival (and during our stay) to the ease of an early departure two weeks later, everything was perfect. The house is spacious, spotlessly clean, and has everything you could need even if, as we did, you plan to eat at home much of the time. The garden is a lovely place to relax on a hot afternoon. Matteo and Carlotta are themselves delightful, and a pleasure to meet. They have a host of (excellent) recommendations for places to eat etc - locally and even for our day trip to Florence (where they work). Matteo was there to welcome us when we arrived, and his mother and Nonna live just across the little private track which runs to the house, and often walked or cycled past and greeted us. Better still, we were treated to a delicious cake baked for us by his mother, and several consignments of Nonna’s sensational tomatoes from her little vegetable patch behind her house. We could not recommend this place highly enough. A couple of notes, perhaps. First, Pistoia itself seems a fairly sleepy town much of the time, but seems to come alive on Thursday evening and into the weekend. There are lots of bars and restaurants (do try La Botte Gaia!), and a market near the duomo every morning except Sunday (superb veg, and very cheap). It’s not a short walk in the 35 degree heat we had, but a gentle 20 minute stroll will see you home easily. Secondly, we were a little concerned that, on the map, the house shows as just behind a petrol/service station, and we thought it might be noisy. Do not worry! We simply did not know it was there. The house is quiet, and the peace in the garden is only interrupted when the little girl next door is singing to her mother(!)”
Lovely home for 2. Enjoy olive trees and forest view, out of romantic arch windows. Taste a shower with sun panel hot water. Play with full kitchen. Have your dinner on the terrace in front of your door. Sleep deep in the peace of our valley.
“Uliveto deserves more than 5 stars! Surrounded by olive trees, church bells, beautiful vistas of Pistoia and mountain villages, we found ourselves very relaxed immediately. We arrived after dark and Giorgio was present to greet us. We felt like part of the family. Giorgio shared many travel tips with us the next morning and we spent the day in Pistoia. We stopped at the grocery store on the way home, so we were able to prepare most of our remaining meals in the AirBnB. We did walk up the hill to Le Grazie to a simple restaurant for delicious ravioli on Saturday and back on Sunday for pizza. A local farmer stopped by with fresh porcini mushrooms, so that was a true delicacy! We truly felt spoiled when Giorgio offered to share his freshly prepared porcini risotto with us! The roads are narrow and the turns are sharp, but it is truly a beautiful spot in Tuscany!”
Il nostro alloggio è sulla tranquilla montagna pistoiese uno degli ultimi luoghi in cui domina il verde, dove il tempo sembra essersi fermato, dove il silenzio viene infranto solo dal cinguettio degli uccelli e il suono delle campane. Il territorio offre molte possibilità a tutti coloro che sentono la necessità di passare un po' di tempo a contatto con la magnificenza di Madre Natura. Se vuoi visitare le più belle città e zone caratteristiche della Toscana le puoi raggiungere in 1/3ore di auto
“We had a wonderful stay! Antonella and her family welcomed us with their very special hospitality and we felt very comfortable from the first second. Antonella surprised us with delicious fruit, jam, vino and breakfast and provided us with many tips. Our daughter (but also we) loved the two dogs. The house is on a dreamlike property. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and cooled off in the pool every now and then. The place and the surroundings are highly recommended for a vacation in Tuscany. During the day it is summerly warm and in the evening it cools down wonderfully in the fresh mountain air! There is a lot to do in the immediate vicinity. We were hiking and of course we were in Canyon Park to climb there and then jump into the cool water. The beautiful cities of Florence and Lucca can also be reached quickly. In the evening you can end the day on the terrace including fireflies. We'll be back ”
