For almost 2 weeks we stayed in a fine studio, in Pontepetri (small appt complex near Villa La Panche, from same owners).
The owners (Davide and his father Nedo) are doing their utmost for their guests. Although the rooms, garden and pool are of great atmosphere and well designed / decorated, their attitude is to permanently improve things, even for the slightest details. Top hosts so to say.
Rooms and small kitchen are very complete regarding furnishment and equipment.
Although appt is situated near (very good and pleasant) restaurant, as well as the road 66, it is very quietly situated.
Davide knows the area himself very well and gives you when arrived, many really good tips to visit, in the surroundings.
For hiking /walking, one can start behind the house.
We strongly recommend this appartement complex for a stay in North Tuscane.
Only disadvantage might be for some visitors the winding road from Pistoia to Pontepetri, but ending up in the green and hilly surroundings makes the trip
of 25 min from Pistoia centre absolutely worth.
