About Mr. Davide Ferrari

I am the manager of “GMG Holidays”, a small family business operating with its self-catering properties near the town of Pistoia, a few dozen minutes away from other important art cities like Florence, Lucca and Pisa as well as from the beaches of Versilia.

What we aim at offer you is the chance to spend a relaxing holiday in the nature of a green valley set between the town of Pistoia and the Tuscan Apennine Mountains. This is a well known and loved winter holiday destination, famous for the ski slopes of Abetone, but also an enchanting holiday spot between spring and autumn, thanks to its pretty paths and silent ancient forests.

Our properties are charming historic buildings which have been recently renovated and fully equipped to meet the needs of increasingly demanding tourists. In fact, my father and I are both passionate travellers and this helps us to empathize with the potential demands of our guests. We are truly committed to your satisfaction and looking forward to welcoming you to one of our properties! We will do our best to make you feel at home!

A fantastic house in a fantastic location with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant week in this delightful tower. Alessandro (the owner) was wonderful - charming and helpful but also discreet, coming early in the morning to clean the pool each day without disturbing his slumbering guests! When we arrived there was an issue with the wi-fi but Alessandro sorted it out and came back the next morning with a brand new router.

The location is stunning and the furniture and decoration within the house are perfectly in keeping with the building’s character and history. The whole property has been renovated and equipped tastefully and there’s everything you could ask for. The property, although close to Cireglio and just 25 minutes from Pistoia, is very private due to its location at the top of a hill. The road up to the house is very steep and the surface is quite rough at times so you need to take care. A wonderful, characterful property in a spectacular location - absolutely fabulous.

Spectacular setting

  • 5 of 5

Views! The most extraordinary views. House has great history. The house is simple but comfortable. The owner is the loveliest man who will bend over backwards to help with anything. The kitchen is small and stocked with only basic utensils for simple cooking.

Une vue extraordinaire et un calme dépaysant

  • 5 of 5

Nous avon passé une semaine très dépaysante et agréable dans cette maison. En arrivant, on ne s'attendait pas à ce que ça soit une ancienne tour d'observation et à écouter son histoire par le propriétaire on se laisse impressionner. Mais le lieu a été très vite apprivoisé et nous avons pleinement profité de son cadre exceptionnel au bord de la foret, de sa vue extraordinaire des hauteurs sur la Toscane et surtout de son calme. Les enfants s'amusaient dans la' petite piscine, on faisait des barbecues et on se promenait dans la foret. L'accès en voiture pour arriver sur le lieu est un petit peu compliqué car à partir d'un certain moment On monte par un chemin de terre et de pierre, mais on s'y fait. Il est certain qu'habiter un tel endroit a un prix. Nous étions à 20 min en voiture de Pistoia pour faire de belles découvertes culturelles de la ville ou pour faire des courses au supermarché, mais seulement à quelques minutes du village du Cireglio pour s'approvisionner en ce qui est essentiel (épicerie, pharmacie etc ).

La propriété est cloisonné ce qui est rassurant quand on voyage avec un chien. Alessandro était un hôte très gentil, disponible et tres réactif à toutes nos demandes. On recommande la maison vivement.

Belle maison, vue à couper le souffle

  • 5 of 5

L'accueil d,Allessandro le propriétaire est formidable. Il fait tout pour que le séjour se passe bien. La maison est isolée, mais la vue jusqu'à Florence (40 km !) est fantastique. On alterne les journées de farniente avec les journées d' excursion, il y a beaucoup à faire dans la région.

Le calme absolu

  • 5 of 5

Le calme, la tranquilité, une maison agréable et une vue imprenable, cette maison correspond exactement à ces critères.

La maison est très bien équipée (il manque juste un congélateur pour profiter des glaces italiennes) et très bien entretenue.

Le propriétaire est très gentil et attentionnné.

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances en famille.

Nous conseillons cette maison sans réserve.

Our holiday home is located 20 minutes from the centre of Pistoia, 35 minutes from Florence Airport and one hour from Pisa Airport. You can reach the house following the Regional Road 66 in direction of Abetone. One of our representatives will give you a date in the village of Cireglio to lead you in this quiet location, just 5 minutes away from the main road.

In the centre of Cireglio, just 5 minutes from the house 'La Torre', you will find many useful services and shops such as a minimarket, a butcher, a bar / pastry shop, a restaurant, an ATM and a pharmacy.

“La Torre” is located 10 km North of Pistoia, in a lush area, 40 minutes far from Florence and Lucca, 1 hour from the beaches of Versilia. Because of its position, this villa may be an ideal base for tourists interested in visiting the famous art cities of Tuscany as well as for nature lovers, aiming to discover the Tuscan Apennine's beautiful landscapes in all seasons.

Located at the foot of the mountains, between Florence and Lucca, Pistoia has much to offer in terms of history, monuments, folk traditions, nature and gastronomic specialties. Although less visited than other cities in Tuscany, Pistoia presents a well-preserved medieval centre with the monumental Cathedral Square, one of the most beautiful in Italy.

Near Pistoia there are several interesting destinations like the Leonardian Museum in Vinci, Montecatini and its thermal baths, the medieval villages of the Valdinievole, including Collodi, the town of Pinocchio.
