“Lovely apartment in a wonderful villa near Pisa” We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a pristine apartment in this ancient villa which is undergoing renovation in stages, and is a remarkable tribute to the owners. It was a delight to be there. The owners were kindness itself.
As a small tip we would perhaps suggest taking or hiring a car. The buses and trains are not too far away; there were bikes available for our use; the owners kindly took us to and from the airport, and were very kind in driving us on other occasions; but it would be an advantage to have one's own vehicle to get around, perhaps to explore the hills. Having said that we had no trouble going to Florence, Pisa, Casina, and Lucca, all by public transport, which we found very convenient when visiting these lovely cities.
“A warm welcome, ideal location and quintessentially Italian villa - buonissima!”

The attention to detail that Antonio and Donatella have given to the appartment was excellent. We both enjoyed admiring the frescos on the wall whilst having breakfast.

“Beautiful place, just needs a few extra bits” This is a really gorgeous place - the setting is fabulous with its views of Volterra, the pool is great and the apartment was lovely. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was kitted out well. However it was all quite new and I think a few things need to be ironed out for this to be a really wonderful place for a holiday. There is no air-conditioning, which I understand because the owners want to be 'green' but we couldn't really open the windows because there were so many bugs and no mosquito nets on the windows. So it was either boil or be bitten! The tennis court is good, but if, like us, you tend to hit the odd high shot, you will lose all your tennis balls, because the surrounding area is so scrubby that once a ball goes out of the court there is no chance of finding it again. The only other thing I would suggest is that there should be a person who is available to help with any questions and it should be obvious where to find them!
Overall though, we had a lovely stay and I would recommend this place - just pack insect repellent!
