The atmosphere has been recently renovated and the decor is very nice and refined. Also, being a house of ancient construction, despite being in the center, is very quiet and perfect for a truly relaxing vacation!

The atmosphere has been recently renovated and the decor is very nice and refined. Also, being a house of ancient construction, despite being in the center, is very quiet and perfect for a truly relaxing vacation!

The Space

The apartment is very comfortable, warm and welcoming.
In its 60 square meters includes a kitchen-living room, two bedrooms, one bathroom. The house is situated in an ideal environment, in the heart of Tuscany, halfway between Florence, Pisa and Lucca, less than 40 km from the Tyrrhenian coast. In the historic center of Pistoia, the accommodation is perfect for exploring this fascinating city, as well as natural starting point for the discovery of the entire region, as close to the motorway A11 and the railway station and the bus station, at the foot of the Apennine mountain. It is located in a small and very quiet garden square, the atmosphere has been recently renovated and the decor is very nice and refined, with the possibility for people with disabilities to benefit from special access and a bathroom. Also, being a house of ancient construction, despite being in the center, is very quiet and perfect for a truly relaxing vacation!

Interaction with Guests

The presence of a wifi connection provides the possibility of direct communication between us and the guests, in addition, the first meeting at the beginning of the stay, for the delivery of the keys and the presentation of the apartment.

The Neighborhood

The green square where the apartment is situated offers you a lot of opportunities: you can find here a fresh fruits and vegetables' kiosk, a bakery and a typical restaurant.

Getting around

Just in the square is the local stop of the bus, after about 15 minutes, leading to the central railway station and bus station.

  • If you want to live like a local in a lovely apartment on a pretty little square in a gorgeous Tuscan town, you will love this delightful destination. We had a marvellous time and strongly recommend Marta,s lovely old apartment in Pistoia . Thanks Marta for a really special 10 days

  • Marta's apartment was wonderful, it was spotless, roomy and very well located to the old town which we explored as well as some very nice restaurants.

    Marta suggested a restaurant for our 45th wedding anniversary which was fantastic, it was one of the best restaurants we have eaten at in our European trip so far.

    Andrea's parents met us at the apartment and although they don't speak a lot of English we managed to converse and they showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. I would not hesitate to recommend Marta & Andrea's apartment to anyone who wants a base to explore Tuscany.

  • Thank you to Marta and Andrea for a wonderful long stay in their place in Piazza san Lorenzo. It is a perfect place from which to explore the under-rated surrounds of Pistoia, with its treasures. We particularly enjoyed the passegiata with other citizens every day around the Piazza Duoma. The apartment is clean and cool and handy to everything - bakery, coffee shop, fruit and vegies, and a hop step and jump from Piazza della Sala. Firenze, Lucca, Pisa and Montecatini Terme all in easy reach by train. Peter and Jacquie

  • Marta and Andrea could not have been more helpful. We LOVED Pistoia, and LOVED the apartment. Despite the fact that we were never able to see our hosts, as they were out of town, they communicated very well, and had everything prepared for us exactly as promised. Food shopping in Piazza della Sala - as well as beer and wine drinking - is not to be missed. Find Saulo in his little market for some amazing local treats. A walk up north of the town toward Germanaia is a long, but beautiful one. Most important - take your time in Pistoia - there is so much to enjoy, and Piazza San Lorenzo is the perfect place to stay. Grazie!

  • Ottima esperienza nella casa di Marta a Pistoia!
    Ideale per chi non ha grosse pretese e si reca a Pistoia per un breve periodo!
    Peccato non aver conosciuto Marta ma nonostante non fosse lì la sua famiglia ci ha accolto molto bene.
    Grazie mille!

  • Le potenzialità dell'alloggio (centrale, piano terra, spazioso) non sono sfruttate al meglio per la poca scrupolosità nella pulizia degli ambienti e per la scomodità del letto.

    Response from Marta:

    Una volta ricevuta la richiesta di informazioni, abbiamo parlato prima con Lucia e quindi con Agnese in relazione alla possibilità di un soggiorno breve della loro collega veneta Agostina Zwilling nel nostro appartamento. Concordati i dettagli, all'appuntamento per l'ingresso nella casa nè Agostina e il marito Gosta, nè Lucia hanno mostrato perplessità sul livello di pulizia dei locali (per il quale avevamo dedicato gran parte delle ore precedenti al loro arrivo), ma hanno bensì speso molte occasioni per complimentarsi per l'arredamento e l'organizzazione degli spazi. Ripetendo più volte la possibilità per loro di contattarci in qualsiasi momento anche per la più piccola necessità, ci siamo accomiatati dai nostri ospiti, fissando di rivedersi il lunedì venturo. La Domenica sera poi, uno spiacevole imprevisto per il giorno dopo ci ha dovuto far cambiare l'organizzazione concordata, così abbiamo contattato Lucia, unico nostro numero telefonico in possesso, per definire un diverso programma. Lucia ci ha così informati che i nostri ospiti avevano già lasciato l'appartamento quella sera stessa e che avevano lamentato una scarsa pulizia generale ed un letto matrimoniale davvero scomodo, probabilmente con un buco nel materasso, con corredo di recriminazioni per la fiducia accordataci e buoni propositi per il futuro. Noi, cascando letteralmente dalle nuvole, ci siamo sinceramente dispiaciuti per quella che sembrava essere la prima esperienza negativa in più di un anno di attività, ed abbiamo quindi chiesto di poter parlare direttamente con Agostina di quanto successo, anche per scusarci di nostre eventuali mancanze. Lucia ci ha però risposto che questo era impossibile e di accontentarsi di quanto era lei a riportarci: ulteriori sollecitazioni in tal senso si sono rivelate inutili. Raggiunta velocemente la casa poi, abbiamo trovato il letto matrimoniale nelle stesse (ottime) condizioni di sempre, senza alcun danneggiamento nel materasso, e gli stracci e gli strumenti per la pulizia della casa, demandata agli ospiti alla conclusione del soggiorno, puliti e posizionati laddove erano stati da noi riposti. In definitiva, abbiamo una recensione negativa di una persona che non abbiamo nemmeno incontrato (Agnese), che riporta le sensazioni che lei e la collega che abbiamo incontrato (Lucia) hanno interpretato da Agostina e Gosta, i nostri ospiti che hanno concluso il soggiorno anticipatamente senza alcuna comunicazione per noi e che ora non possiamo contattare a riguardo. Un'esperienza, in fondo, a dir poco negativa...

  • Marta was a very nice host, she was in time despite our very late arrival and the appartment was equipped with all the necessary stuff. I must also say that the neighbours are very kind and helpful.

    Pistoia is a very nice little town, it has a lot of things to offer to the tourists and the location of the appartment is very good, at walking distance from the center, restaurants etc.

    All in all it was a very positive experience that I would reccomend you.

  • Marta was the perfect host and her apartment is just beautiful. Located within walking distance to Pistoia centre as very easy to get trains to Florence and other surrounding city's thanks for a great stay. I would highly recommend staying here!
