We stayed for 12 days in pianeta! We were disappointed from beginning to end.

We arrived and saw the private parking was a place across the road in the field. We parked in the shadow but were asked for no reason to move the car to full sun. The hostess greeted us coldly and fake friendly. We brought bikes and had to put them against the wall of the house (sworks and time road bikes), so also unsheltered from the elements. Crap! The hostess asked to pay immediately,… we hadn’t even seen the room yet… . It was already clear there would be no communication possible since the hosting family doesn’t understand anything other than Italian and made it clear to not even try in another language. So we felt we had to pay immediately.

Other reasons why the place sucked.
-there was no airconditioning, only an old ventilator, sleeping was almost impossible at night in plus 30 ° temperature.
-12 days of breakfast with bad instant coffee and dry cheap cookies and cake, no ham, no cheese, no eggs, no fruit or yoghurt. After a few days you can’t stand it anymore. I thought B&B is about bed and BREAKFAST.
-The interior is cheesy and kitschy to an extent I have never seen before. Ugly paintings and lamps, old-fashioned upholstery, worn out chairs, the stink of the same incense every day,…
-It’s in the middle of nowhere. There are no shops, and one bar/restaurant a km further in a village with two houses and a church. (granted, there are a few busstops,six km from Pistoia)
-The owners were having work done on the house. Waking up every morning with the clattering noise of jackhammers and other building equipment. Oh, tranquility… (maybe do this in winter?)
-The tap on the bath was broken. We suspect that was a cheap way to save money. No ventilation in the bathroom, there was fungus in the shower. Also: slippery floor tiles,…
-WiFi suddenly stopped working (supposedly because of a thunder storm?... ), this made it impossible to plan our trip from day to day….
-One of the owners seems nosy and when you come in for the night or at breakfast, wants to know what you did/where you are going, tries to advise you what to do, a bit in a childlike manner. :)
-For a few days in a row the bed wasn’t made, nor the room cleaned.
-The markings outside “ this is private property (gazebo, swimming pool, tables)” vs poor tables without parasol “for use by B&B”; both in the same area, aren’t inviting and very off putting to sit there.

In short, the accomodation, an old house little refurbished and still being worked on, is not fit for being a B&B. The owners are, inadequate and unprofessional. Maybe it is possible to stay there for a night as a stopover place but certainly no more. If we wouldn’t have paid the whole stay in the beginning we would have found another place and left after paying our dues. Maybe this is why the owner insists on paying the whole stay upfront? Though it’s cheap it’s not worth the money. In fact, all things considered, we feel cheated out of our money.

Large, comfortable and very clean room & bathroom. Pianeta is located in nice surroundings with free private parking. Very helpful and friendly owners.The place is not easy to find. If we didn't have Garmin device we would got lost on the way. Although we have arrived very late in the evening we have easily done check in. Breakfast good enough. This place is fabulous! The atmosphere is lovely!

Stayed in this lovely B & B on the outskirts of Pistoia when visiting the city for a concert. The accomodation is in a charming Tuscan country house about 10 mins drive from the city centre it is also quite accessible for Firenze area, It is about 12 euro by taxi from the station on Pistoia but ideal if you have a car.

The room (one of 3) was comfortably furnished all though there was no en-suite the shared bathroom was very well appointed

Giuliana and Franco were perfect hosts even picking us up in town after the concert and taking us back to the B & B.

Breakfast was good with a choice of sweet or savoury items and all in the stay represented exceptional value for the price.

Would defenitely revisit if in the Pistoia area

We needed a stay for one night and found this beautyful b&b, located a short drive from Pistoia. We were welcomed very warm, slept wonderful and had a delicious breakfast. We can recommend this b&b and would definitely stay again.
