Rural idyll

  • 3 of 5

Spent a very nice week here in May. Lovely garden though the weather wasn't quite good enough to take full advantage of it, very quiet and nice 'neighbours' - owners horses! There is a narrow (unpaved) driveway to negotiate and the house sits on a small hillock overlooking the village of Palaia. Relatively easy drive from Pisa airport and very well located to reach major sites in western Tuscany - Volterra, Lucca, San Gimignano, and east to the Chianti hill towns (Radda, Greve, Castellini etc). Florence and Siena also within an hour's drive. We ventured south to Massa Martimma - absolutely charming wee place - and to Piombino where we caught the ferry to Elba. Great days out!

The House itself is relatively well equipped but making tea (and toast!) was a bit of a challenge. I would recommend that the owners invest in a kettle (and maybe a toaster though that's not quite so essential) as boiling water in a pot wasn't exactly safe! The pellet burning stove was very welcome as we had a couple of cold evenings but can't imagine it would be used much in the summer months. It is very efficient!

We didn't eat at the on site restaurant (open Fri-Sun) but judging by how busy it was, it must be good. We ate at the Anticha Farmacia in thr village and had carry out pizza from the al Borgo restaurant opposite the market car park. Both were excellent and good value.

The Owners of Il Fienile are lovely and very helpful. A very pleasant week away - grazie mille!

Nice cottage in a beautiful landscape

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful time at the cottage in Palaia. Perfectly located to explore big parts of the Tuscany. The landlords are very friendly and helpful.

The view around the house is amazing especially in the morning.

Thanks again for the hospitality.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Following the good directions we arrived at the property at 20.00hours and were met by the owners by prior arrangement . The property was a well converted barn with all facilities close to the old farmhouse that is now converted into a part time restaurant . We ate there twice and had a typical Tuscany meal. The views were fabulous from the terraces from either side of the house in the evening. We were made very welcome by the family.

Super Unterkunft-perfekte Lage!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft ist beeindruckend, liebevoll gestaltet, gut ausgestattet und der Ausblick nach Palaia Ort einfach atemberaubend.

Es gibt alles - einen Holzkohlegrill, 2 Terrassen, Fahrräder kostenlos zur Benützung, ein angrenzendes Lokal, welches vom Bruder des Vermieters geführt wird, wo es toskanische Spezialitäten gibt zu moderaten Preisen - sehr lecker.

Einen kleinen Spielplatz daneben, zwei Pferde der Besitzer - die Kleinen durften auch mal eine Runde mitreiten - perfekt für Kinder.(liebe Grüße an die Kleinen und Buona Pasqua an Camilla, Matteo, Eledi und die restlichen Kinder)

Der Empfang durch Angiolo und Simona war sehr freundlich, zur Begrüßung gab es eine Flasche Wein, Nudeln und Wasser, jederzeit nützliche Informationen zu Ausflügen in die Umgebung und aktuellen Veranstaltungen.

Wir werden die Unterkunft in der schönen toskanischen Landschaft mit den sympathischen Vermietern weiterempfehlen und hoffen bald wiederkommen zu können - ist ein echter Geheimtipp!

Liebe Grüße aus Tirol-Österreich von Harald, Martina, Laura und Leonie

Romantischer Urlaub auf dem Land

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen und erholsamen Urlaub in Palaia. Das Haus entsprach den Beschreibungen auf der Seite, wobei das Bad sehr klein ist und auch keine Kaffee"maschine" vorhanden war. Für einen Herbsturlaub war das Haus doch schon etwas zugig und der Pelletofen hatte bei einstelligen Temperaturen gut zu tun.
