About The Experience
Imagine yourself looking out into the beautiful Italian countryside, swirling a glass of local wine and dipping your toes in the heated swimming pool… Great for friends and family, this Tuscany villa rental with an annex is a comfortable starting point to enjoy a genuine Italian experience. There are several charming hill towns nearby this Tuscany accommodation with small shops, cafes and restaurants. Other places such as Pisa, San Gimignano, Volterra and Lucca are all within close proximity for daytrips from this self-catering accommodation in Tuscany.
Location Description

This rental villa in Tuscany near the hamlet of Forcoli is located in Italy’s beautiful Tuscan countryside. Forcoli is a very quaint Tuscan village with a few cafes and local shops. For a larger town, Pontedera offers a train station, supermarkets, shops, gas stations, pharmacies, a hospital, post offices, restaurants, cafes, and movie theatres. Close to this Tuscan villa are several cities ideal for daytrips; Pisa, Lucca, Florence (convenient by train from Pontedera), San Gimignano and Volterra. The city of Pisa, famous for its tower, is a convenient city to travel from with an intercity bus service, three train stations and an airport. Volterra is a regional gem, where you can truly capture that "hill town experience" in full. From the characteristic main piazza to the Roman ruins, Volterra has something from every century all the way back to Etruscan times. Wander along the Etruscan walls, dating from the 4th century BC, or purchase your own alabaster memento in a nearby shop. Visit museums, the exterior of a 15th century fortress, or lounge in the Piazza dei Priori, one of the best town squares in the region-- and the site of many historic and often bloody events. Ideal for a daytrip, Lucca is a place worth enjoying simply for its medieval charm. There are also a number of interesting sights to visit, as well as a great antique market held on the third Sunday of each month. The Duomo di San Martino and the Church of San Michele in Foro are both gorgeous examples of period architecture, while the Casa di Puccini, where the composer was born, has been transformed into a small museum in his honor. You can also climb the 130 foot Torre Guinigi.

Nearby Attractions: Forcoli (cafes, shops), Pontedera (supermarkets, shops, gas stations, pharmacies, a hospital, post offices, restaurants, cafes, movie theatres), Pisa (leaning tower, bus, train, airport), San Gimignano (towers, boutiques, restaurants, gelato, museum, wine tasting), Volterra (Roman ruins, Etruscan walls, shops, museums, 15th century fortress, Piazza dei Priori), Lucca ( antique market, Duomo di San Martino, Church of San Michele in Foro, Casa di Puccini, Torre Guinigi).

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Overall, we had a lot of fun.
Enjoyed Most:
The space itself. It was large enough to accommodate three families.
Enjoyed Least:
The master bedroom and bath. The dryer was confusing and did not work well at all. We wound up hanging everything up outside in the sun.
Surrounding Area:
Grocery stores were easy to find and had plenty of good food.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Forcoli... not really. It would be a hike.
Tips or Restaurants:
Don't bother paying to have the pool heated. Total waste of money!
Directions:
Followed the direction and we got there.
