About the property

B&B Casa Formica

B&B Casa Formica is located just 10 minutes from Pisa and 20 minutes from Lucca. It is designed inside an old farmhouse built in the first half of '800, fully restored according to the rustic Tuscan style.

Its proximity to the major points of interest and major roads, and the fact that it is 'far' from the chaos of the city, makes it unique and attractive to those who are also looking for peacefulness and relaxation. Ideal for families, for a pleasant stay with children or just want to go cycling. “Casa Formica” is a bit far from the traditional hotel structure that is often too sterile with the customer. We know that we can guarantee the same services and comfort level.

Of particular interest is the garden (over 2500 sqm ) fully equipped with tables, chairs and umbrellas to allow our guests to enjoy their breakfast outdoors (in fine weather), relax after a day of 'hard work' or reading a book under one of the big mulberry trees that dominate the entire vegetation.

Discount for stay more than 7 days

Why Iacopo chose Pisa

“Casa Formica” is a brainchild of Iacopo and his mother Cristina, which have been growing the desire to keep in close contact with guests. They decided to transform their home into a warm, discreet and welcoming place. “Casa Formica” is a bit far from the traditional hotel structure that is often too sterile with the customer. We know that we can guarantee the same services and comfort level.

MAGNIFICO

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions quatre adultes et nous avons passé une semaine (du 13 au 20 Mai 2017) dans l'apartement "Mary" de la Casa Formica.....une trés belle demeure dans un endroit paradisiaque. Tout était parfait. La gentillesse de Lacopo et de ses parents Christina et Mario ont été notre bonus. Leur attention à notre égard a fait de notre séjour un enchantement. Une location que vous pouvez réserver sans hésitation si vous visitez la Toscane. Vous aurez la garantie d'un séjour "inoubliable".

Lovely house and very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Mary for a week in September 2015. The house is next door to the house the owner lives in, which he uses for B&B. There is also a third house which is either rented or used for B&B. They all share a common drive in a gated garden. There is plenty of space.

The house is well equipped and had what we needed. It is very nicely converted from something like an old barn. It is located just outside Pisa in a rural location and you need a car. The bus service to Pisa is limited. There is a train station in the next small town, Navacchio, which we used to travel to Florence, which worked well.

The owner provided a lot of information to help us on parking in Pisa, Lucca etc. and options for getting to other towns. He also has some maps and supermarket, restaurant information.

An Idyllic Place

  • 5 of 5

Our four-night stay at this picturesque apartment was one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany. The apartment is spacious, with a large, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, a comfortable living area with TV and other entertainment facilities (which we did not have time to use), a large table which I co-opted for my computer but could serve as a dining table for six comfortably, and a mezzanine and very large bedroom upstairs. Decorated with a strong Tuscan flavor, the apartment is just as pretty as the VRBO photos suggest. The property is located on the fringe of the town of Cascina, which itself is on the edge of Pisa. It backs onto large open farm fields; be prepared to wake up to the insistent calls of roosters - a nice change from an alarm clock.

Iacopo was our principal contact and was anxious to ensure our comfort and satisfaction. His English is adequate, and he is careful to make sure he comprehends any conversation. His mother and father are equally engaging people. We prepared most of our breakfasts, but, after reading the reviews of his mother 's formidable breakfasts, we arranged to have her prepare breakfast for us on our final morning. We enjoyed a full continental breakfast, replete with fresh local products, including local pastries and some home-made specialties; we didn't eat again until dinner.

Before we left, we took a number of photos of the apartment, the home and the garden, to make sure we always have something to remind us of our visit to this beautiful place.

La vita è bella a Casa Formica!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé presque tout le mois d'août 2013 dans l’Appartment Mary de la Casa Formica. Nous nous y sommes sentis très bien. L’appartement est conforme à la description et aux photos. Il s’agit d’un grand appartement sur deux niveaux, bien aménagé et décoré, confortable, propre et très bien entretenu. Il donne accès à un beau jardin d’arbres fruitiers avec vue sur les oliviers. Situé à environ 4 km des principaux axes routiers, il est facile de se déplacer en voiture pour visiter diverses régions de la Toscane. Iacopo et sa mère Cristina sont des hôtes fantastiques. Ils sont extrêmement sympathiques, disponibles, attentionnés. Ils nous ont choyés en aliments de leur potager, fait découvrir leur huile d’olive et leur vin préféré. Ils sont aux petits soins, généreux de leur temps et de leurs conseils, font tout pour rendre leurs hôtes heureux. Nous conservons d’excellents souvenirs des moments passés à la Casa Formica. Soyez assuré que la vie y est vraiment belle!!! La dolce vita, c'est là!

Très belle location

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une très jolie semaine dans une maison restaurée avec beaucoup de goût. Endroit calme, en pleine campagne, pour séjourner avec de jeunes enfants. Iacopo, le propriétaire, très prévenant, vous guide avec efficacité dans vos visites de la Toscane et vous indique les meilleures plages. Il n'hésite pas à vous assister dans les communications en italien. Bref, un endroit où séjourner les yeux fermés...
