My flat is located in a small village, Pontepetri, in the Apennine mountains of Pistoia, in the municipality of San Marcello Pistoiese, not far from the city of Pistoia. Other cities like Lucca, Florence, Modena and Bologna are also easy to reach, thanks to a recently
renewed road network that connects the Toscana to Emilia Romagna.
Public services are available, like a bus from Pistoia to Abetone that stops in San Marcello Pistoiese or a train that stops in the nearby Pracchia.
Pontepetri is at an altitude of 700 meters, surrounded by the green of the trees and the lawns and the ideal place for a relaxing vacation or where to return after visiting the beautiful cities of the region. A shop, a bakery and a bar-restaurant will provide you with anything you may need.
I regard my little flat as a "nest" where, in winter, you can pass a cozy evening in front of fire of the oven and, in summer, relax in the cool mountain air. It is tastefully and refinedly furnished and has every comfort: washing-machine, dishwasher, TV with DVD and a parking place in front of the house.
The highlight of this apartment though is the small roof terrace looking onto the square with the church and the stream Maresca. A great celebration is hold on July 24th, the Sant'Anna day, and you can watch the firewoks from the terrace, where you may also eat, hidden from indiscreet looks, while enjoying the surrounding panorama with
the background sound of the murmur of the stream.
The kitchen is well equipped with crockery and pots so that you can cook your companion's favourite dish but, if you prefer, I can arrange an agreement with the restaurant, in order to have tasty meals brought up without need to bustle about in the kitchen.
The flat is ideal for a couple or a family with children since there are 4 comfortable bed places: a "very romantic" double bed on the intermediate floor and the sofa in the lounge may become a second double bed.
