After a cultural tour, relax in the large garden which surrounds the villa, in the shadow of age-old trees.

Do not miss walking in the hills, which offer a breathtaking view of the countryside.

The apartment named "The ladies retreat" is on the first floor. It is given admittance through an astonishing monumental staircase and trough a delicious parlour where the frescoes on the walls and the ceiling simulate an open air terrace with country landscapes all around.

This apartment is named after the use it had in the past centuries: this was the part of the house where the ladies relaxed while talking, reading and playing music after their morning toilet. The remarkable and absolutely unique neoclassical frescoes in the delicate nuances of ivory colour which are featured in the living room create a seductive atmosphere of great serenity. The apartment is very smart and bright: beside the wide and beautiful living room it features a romantic double bedroom, a trendy kitchen and a large bathroom.

“Lovely apartment in a wonderful villa near Pisa”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2013

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!”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2012

Donatella and Antonio were very generous hosts; welcoming us into their home and always happy to put themselves out to help. The location was perfect for exploring Tuscony, either by car or by train from the nearby station. This was our first visit to this part of Italy and it has everything that one could want in a holiday - culture, beautiful beaches, excellent cuisine... Both Pisa and Florence are wonderful. The villa is so typical of the houses in Italy - lots of space with most beautiful frescoes on the walls and ceilings - but the appartment was modern and well equipped.

Thank you very much for your kind review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your holiday in Tuscany and your stay in our property. We are sorry to learn that you found the bed somewhat uncomfortable, nobody had ever complained before. Our aim is to make our guests feel well with us: we will check the bed immediately and change the mattresses; your tip has been appreciated, thank you again.

“A beautiful place to stay - totally different”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2011

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. The stone wall structure of the building ensured that it was always cool within the appartment which was great when trying to sleep. We had a bike ride around the local area, which we both enjoyed. Trains into Pisa depart every 50-80 minutes, into the main train station, then its a very pleasent stroll through the old streets of Pisa to the main sights.
