Around Bisticci there are many old churches ( the "Pieve di San Pietro a Cascia" with the Masaccio Museum of Sacred Art) and castles (Sanmezzano Castle) and the famous Etruscan road (the Seven Bridges Road) which begins near Rignano sull'Arno. Along this road you will see some of the most lovely Tuscan landscapes, along with seven Romanic churches. In Cellai (a drive down the hill) you can catch a bus to and from Florence and Arezzo.

  • Best thing about La Pietra Grezza is the owner, Alberto himself. He was always ready to help and solve whatever problems we might have had. The apartment itself is as described in the pictures and in text. There is also a big garden. The place is also dog friendly. We have made lots of nice walks to the hills, where you can see dears and wild boars. You can take a walk to Chianti side of the hills as well. We had a long term stay, and there was enough of everything to support us. Only the weather could have been nicer, but that you never know.

  • The apartment was clean and pleasant and comfortable, everything worked as it should.

    The location is remote from the city bustle and beautiful, but its easy enough to get to Florence in half an hour if you avoid the rush hour traffic. The area around offers multiple touring options if you have a car. Alberto is a helpful and welcoming host. We greatly enjoyed our stay.

We are always available to offer assistance and information about both shops, supermarkets and restaurants, the festivals and events in place in nearby towns. I manage to be both extremely helpful and caring of my guests and property, without ever being invasive and nosey.
