Further details indoors

From the chapel two separate studios have been created.

LA NICCHIA has been decorated in the typical Tuscan style with vaulted ceilings of old red brick,terracotta floor and bathroom done out in Italian marble.The apartment,which is situated on the ground floor,includes a spacious bathroom with shower and an open plan room of about 45 sq.metres.In this room three distinct areas have been created with two steps delineating the areas:a living area with sofa,a bedroom area with double bed and a fully equipped kitchen area.From the kitchen you go out onto a small loggia with a table and chairs which overlooks a pound.There is another door at the side of the building which takes you into the living area.The forniture is in keeping with the building,simple but comfortable at the same time.

LA CAPPELLINA is a delightful studio which has a ceiling with wooden beams and brick supported by two tie beams and a Tuscan terracotta floor.From a small balcony(with cast iron table and chairs)you go through an imposing door and a magnificent glass door with its original coloured panes into the apartment.Once inside you find yourself in a large bright room(50 sq.metres).Here two distinct areas have been created:a bedroom area with double bed and a living room with sofa bed(sleeps one or two).The kitchen area is slightly raised and fully equipped.A few steps and a hidden door lead you to the bathroom.

There is the possibility to have two separated bedrooms:actually we have another apartment in 30 mt. from the chapel(La Chiocciola);it has 2 bedrooms (on request I can add another),2 bathrooms,1 kitchen and one big sunny terrace.It is on the 2nd floor ;it has a detail:for the moment the access is with a spiral-staircase,but till now it wasn't a problem for our guests.Please contact the owner for prices or more information.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is one of the most important tourist regions in Italy.Its towns are famous all over the world:Florence with its beautiful buildings,monuments,art -galleries,libraries and churches;Pisa with its Leaning Tower;Siena,an ancient Etruscan town with its medieval traditions.

Tuscan landscape is various;there are mountains(Appennino with Alpi Apuane,Where Michelangelo found the precious marble to create David and La Pietà),hills with their vineyards and olive-groves,the coast from Versilia(with wide sandy beach) to Argentario,where we can find many lovely places for swimming and for watersports .Off the coast there is the Arcipelago Toscano with its isles: Elba, Capraia, Giannutri, Giglio, Montecristo and Pianosa.


Villa Margherita is situated in Fauglia,a little village of Pisa countryside(in 20 minutes by car from the city).It has an ideal location at the top of the village,with a view of the local hills and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.The ancient village of Fauglia has all amenities(banks,chemist,grocers',restaurant and other shops).

Ideally located for trips to Tuscan towns such as Pisa,Lucca,Florence,Volterra,SanGimignano,Siena and to seaside resorts.Those who like to be more physically active,can make excursions in the lovely surroundings of Fauglia on foot,by bike(avaiable on location)or on horseback.Water sports can be done at the beach reachable in a 20 minutes'drive,where there are also several tennis courts and 2 golf courses.( The Cosmopolitan Golf Tirrenia Pisa has 18 holes, and Golf club Tirrenia has 9 holes ).

The restaurants in Fauglia and near the village serve typical Tuscan dishes and wines of the vineyards of the surrounding area,the Chianti delle colline Pisane and white wine San Torpè.

"exceeds expectations a wonderful adventure"

My Wife and I and 3 children 6 months-8yrs stayed in "La Cappellina" and my mother in law and friend downstairs in "La Nicchia" both were charming and beautiful full of lovely architectural details and attention to detail that Nilo artistically incorporates to every inch of renovation he has done. The grounds have lovely walks and offer lovely views, the centre of the village is a short walk and has everything you need. although we visited Pisa and a number of beautiful towns and villages as well as the beach at viareggio the thing that our children will always remember are Nilo, his tractor which he generously gave them rides around the grounds on and his 2 dogs!. Silvanna and Nilo are excellent hosts and it is amazing what they have done and are doing with this magnificent Villa - . Silvanna generously did a bit of essential shopping for us before we arrived and set up a visit to a vineyard..amazing place to stay..certainly will go back some time and definitely recommend.

Villa Margherita was extraordinary. To stay in a 14C converted chapel on the grounds of this fabulous building was both beautiful and enlightening. This was largely thanks to Silvana and Nilo - who had provisions waiting for us on arrival and who kindly showed us around the villa and grounds - plus told us history . . .
They recommended a winery 'Pitta' which was well worth it especially with Valentina our guide who taught us so much.
Villa Margherita was in good driving distance to Pisa, Volterra (highly recommend a visit) and the beach. I cried when we left.
