About The Experience
Authentic Tuscan design and eclectic charm describes this renovated farmhouse, located only 6 km from the 12th century village of Palaia. Ample windows and French doors create a bright airy atmosphere; each bedroom has an en suite bathroom, a rarity in most Italian rentals. Relax in the charming loggia with access to a spacious courtyard or stroll through the private olive grove with panoramic views- either way this farmhouse provides the perfect retreat for a group of friends or large family looking to enjoy the peace of the countryside.
Location Description

Located on a hilltop in the province of Pisa, this farmhouse is 6 km from the picturesque village of Palaia where there are several restaurants. Located 30 km away is the famous city of Pisa, a convenient city to travel from with an intercity bus service, three train stations and an airport. Many important cities are reachable from Pisa’s train station; a few include: Rome, Genoa, Grosseto, Lucca and Florence.

Tania, June

It was a peaceful and beautiful property and we had a great week there both using it as a launching pad for sightseeing and as a great place to hang out with the kids and relax.
Enjoyed Most:
We loved the grounds and the view. The villa itself was beautiful and spacious with the right number of bedrooms and good room size. The pool was terrific as was the furniture. We also appreciated the games/toys/books that were there.
Enjoyed Least:
Since the property is not air-conditioned the top floor became very hot at night even with the fan on. Because not all the windows were screened, we could not open them due to heavy mosquitos. Also, we liked Francesco and Liliana but it would have been helpful if someone had spoken some English.
Surrounding Area:
We enjoyed running/walking to the nearby villages--the nearby Co-op for shopping and proximity to Firenze and Pisa.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Palaia was not exactly walking distance. Genovese was within walking distance but there is not much happening there.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring lots of good bug spray from the US. The Italian spray was fairly useless.
Check In Out:
It was smooth and painless.
