I rented this property for the month of July and found it to be everything I thought it would be. Family and friends, seventeen altogether, joined me throughout the month and everyone, without exception, commented about the spaciousness, cleanliness, comfort, and location. Everything that was depicted on the website were accurate portrayals of what to expect.
Fabrizio and Nora were perfect hosts who sent a lot of pre-trip information which made planning much easier. They also responded quickly on the occasion of our arrival about a small issue. They addressed it immediately and, within 24 hours, everything was fine. This property is perfectly located to visit so many areas in Tuscany but we were also able to easily travel to Venice and Rome for several days at a time. The Pontedera train station was so accessible that we used it extensively for our travels.
La Piazzetta became our "hangout" and Laura and her husband, the owners, were very friendly and helpful especially during our first few days in the area, giving us directions and answering questions. And their pizza is fabulous!! We all agreed that it was the best we ate while in Italy.
The Varramista wine tasting tour was excellent and only a five-minute drive away. Catarina was the tour guide who made our visit so enjoyable. Because I had groups of people arrive at different times during the month, I actually experienced the wine tasting three times during my stay. I highly recommend it as a stop on anyone's tour.
I rented a car for the month and, after the first day of driving, had no problem finding my way around and figuring out the roundabouts. The train station, grocery stores, and banks were easy to find and all very convenient. The highway between Florence and Pisa was also easily accessible, less than five minutes away.
If I return to Tuscany for any length of time, I will certainly book this property again. It provided the base for a wonderful experience!!
