The Tuscany region

Where We Are:

La Pietra Grezza is located 400 meters above sea level in the region of Tuscany known as Chianti Valdarno,

south of Florence. The house is about 18 km from Florence, 19 km from Florence Airport- Peretola, 35 km

from National Park of Casentinesi Forests and Falterona Mountains, 67 km from Siena and San Gimignano, 45 km from Arezzo, and 79 km from Pisa. It is easily reached from the A1 motorway (you will find the map on our website) and is an ideal location for those who want to spend a relaxing and pleasant holiday, but at the same time want easy access to the most beautiful historic towns in the region. 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. There is a swimming pool 2 km away and a private riding school 5 km, Tennis Club 8 km, 9 hole golf course 9 km, and an 18 hole course 25 km.

The outlet The Mall, in the Leccio locality, is only 8 km away. The centre now hosts the most prestigious brands outlets.

"Beautiful place, very kind and helpful host"

The appartment Lilac is in great ambient, with beautiful vew towards the Arno valey. It has it's own yard, with all facilities for pleasant stay. Living rom is big enough, and kitchen and two bathrooms are well equiped and confortable for pleasant stay of 4-6 people. The enterier is very nice, decorated with pictures and old peaces of furniture. The only disadvantage could be that there is no supermarket or restorant nearby.

Dear P.,
thanks for your words and thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I hope to see again you and your Family.
Kind Regards,
Alberto
