Lovely apartment, excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

This really is a lovely apartment. The photographs do not do it justice. The glass staircase is magnificent, as is the master bedroom with its comfortable bed and plentiful storage space. The living area had everything we needed for our short stay. It is well situated for all the local sights and is easily accessible from the airport or train station. Public transport is cheap, clean and efficient. Pisa is a good centre for visiting the other Tuscan attractions. Giovanni was there to meet us on arrival and he was a very good host. All communications with him were excellent. We would recommend this apartment.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is vey comfortable, clean and close to both the attractions and the train station. Giovanni was easy to communicate with and fast to respond. He was kind and service minded. If you are travelling not during the summer take a pair of warm socks because the stone floor is a bit cold which is nice for warm days. We had a great stay and can highly recommend the place.

Fantastic - amazing! Will stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Giovanni was there to meet us in a smooth transition from Pisa airport to the flat (it's so close!). He showed us around the flat and gave us some tips for Pisa :) the flat is really easy to maintain and there is lots of room to cook and store food. Giovanni is such a good host and he has such a beautiful flat. The best thing about the flat is that it is on the river practically! That view shown - he is not kidding - that is the view you get. And it is so reasonably priced - you'd do a lot worse than to stay here. Me and my partner used the train quite a lot and that was a short stroll away too!

Oh and to top it all off - Giovanni left us a lovely bottle of red to welcome us to our first night in Pisa. I couldn't say anything nicer! Enjoy your stay :)

Great accomodation in the center

  • 5 of 5

I was 5 days in Pisa and I am glad I stayed in this apartment.

It was very clean and it looked recently renovated, the kitchen and bathroom seem almost new. Everything worked perfectly.

I think it is ideal for the summer because the thick stone walls keep the apartment cool even if it is over 35ºC outside.

It is very well located, not just to visit the Tower and the city center but to use as a "base camp" to explore Tuscany (it is a walking distance to the train station from where you can easily get trains to the most important cities)

The owner was very nice and helpful with everything, and it is a plus that he speaks English.

I will definitely recommend the place and I am looking forward to go back there myself.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean, spacious and well designed. It was easy walking distance to everything. Giovanni was very helpful and quick to respond. We were welcomed with a package of delicious biscotti on our table. We found the condiments left in the kitchen very helpful and did cook one meal there. Giovanni also gave us a ride to the station, which was greatly appreciated. We stayed here 4 days, visiting Lucca, and the beach on 2 days, so it was a great location for us.

Thank you Giovanni, we would stay here again.

Bellissima appartamento nel centro storico di Pisa

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati 4 giorni nella "Casina" in Pisa. Questo bello, commodo appartamento é situato dirretamente al Arno, entre la cappelina e il ponte, vuol dire nel centro del centro storico della bellisimma cittá di Pisa. Nel appartamento si trova tutte le cose di cui c´é bisogno. La cocina, con veramente tutto, un bel bagno, grande e pulitissimo, tutto é a posto. La casa é stata ristorata con details di architettura chi mostranno una bella esthettica e un amore per queste cose, senza essere mai di un gusto dubbioso. Quest´appartamento recommendarei voluntieri, sia per amici, famiglia, parenti, genitori. Di lá si puó fare degli bellissimi viaggi, sia da Lúcca, la spiaggia (siamo andati da "Marina di Pisa, anche bella, oppúre colla macchina 5 terre, dové passavamo um giorno indimenticabile á Riomaggiore) o in paese. Giovanni é un ospite molto gentile con molte idee e racommendazioni. All prossim volta.
