Wonderful setting, attentive host and a good base for a large group holiday.
We arrived at “il pavone” after an easy 1 1/2hr Drive from Pisa and we were instantly impressed by the location and back drop of this large Villa.
We were greeted by the lovely Lorenza and her equally friendly son Jacobe (sorry if I’ve mis-spelled/mis-pronounced that). They were attentive and informative and through-out our stay Lorenza was helpful and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. The Villa was well maintained and clean and the pool area was regularly managed.
The area in general was quiet but equally the small village of
Castelnuovo di val di Cecina was a few minutes drive and had everything you needed. It’s also a lovely place to walk around with some excellent view points. Behind this village is a power station, but powered by the geothermal hot springs - so environmentally friendly - and you can’t see the power station from the Villa.
Around the Villa were some lovely walks suitable for younger children in our group and for the budding runners there were some nice (hilly) routes with views as rewards for the hot/hilly effort!
We ate in most evenings and there was plenty of different out door areas to accommodate our group of 19. The back drop is an ideal setting for a relaxed meal and we were fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of the pizza oven and barbecue - we popped to the butcher who provided the best T-Bone steak plus cooking instructions - it was a truly delicious meal!
The Villa is also far enough away from towns/cities that its a star gazers paradise.
We had a real good mix of pool days and days out and this Villa is ideal for both - Volterra to the north was worth a visit (via a river stop for swimming) and to the south west is Fallonica - beautiful sandy beach and nice seafood restaurant. Lorenza provided us with details of an alternative quieter beach slightly north of Fallonica - and it was worth the 1 hr journey.
There was also the water park at Fallonica ideal for kids 4+.
We felt there was more to explore locally but ran out of time - hoping we can return to this area again and we would definitely come back to this Villa.
All in all as a group we would definitely reccomend this Villa - it’s got so many loveable features and Lorenza made us feel so welcome.
Excellent séjour !!! Gîte à recommander !
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans le gîte de Lorenza. Notre hôtesse -et son fils - ont été disponibles à tout moment de notre séjour, avec de délicates attentions.
Nous recommandons ce gîte pour des moments conviviaux entre amis.
A bientôt Lorenza et merci encore.
Wunderschöner Urlauber mit einer sehr netten Gastgeberin
Ein sehr zum empfehlendes Haus in den Bergen der Toskana, gut geeignet für Gruppen (wir waren 12 Personen). Ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht und einem sehr gepflegt Pool.
Très beau gîte, accueil très agréable .
Ce gîte est parfait pour un groupe de 12 à 20 personnes. Une grande pièce à vivre permet à chacun de jouer , discuter , bouquiner...
Les quatre appartements séparés sont très confortables.
Bref très chouette endroit.
La maison est située dans la belle campagne toscane, calme et reposante, mais tout près d'un village où se trouvent toutes les commodités. Lorenza et son fils nous ont accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse. La maison est très propre, fonctionnelle et spacieuse.
La situation centrale nous à permis de visiter Pise, Sienne, Florence et plus proche, les villages médiévaux de San Gimignano et Volterra
Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances et nous recommandons cette location.
Merci encore Lorenza pour votre accueil et disponibilité!
La casa è dotata di tutte le attrezzature che servono, molto pulita e confortevole. Posizionata molto bene, soleggiata, tranquilla, ampio parcheggio defilato. Noi l'abbiamo utilizzata per un raduno tra parenti e la casa ha accolto comodamente 4 famiglie numerose.
Our farm is located in the Tuscan countryside rich in small villages and medieval towns (Volterra, San Gimignano and Massa Marittima) where you can appreciate the artistic and historical beauties of Italy. We are also not far from the sea reachable in less than an hour. The Gulf of Follonica and Baratti will welcome you with their white beaches. Not far away, the small thermal lake of Sasso Pisano to spend some time relaxing.
