Best relaxation ever..........
My family arrived a bit early and the gracious owners were just lovely letting us have lunch on the terrace while they completed the home preparation. They are very accommodating - even to the point of going off to get a small refrigerator for us to use. Silvia prepared a wonderful meal for us the final evening and perfect breakfast everyday. The house is spacious and lovely and when my family returns to Italy we sure know where we will be staying. Antonio and Silvia - thank you - thank you - thank you. You are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed every minute of our time in your home. Kiss Kiss.
You have been really nice friends and we remember you with a lot of nostalgia.
Antonio e Sylvia
Favorite part of our trip to Italy
We had a wonderful time at this B&B, and the town of Vicopisano too. The owners could not be more wonderful. On our first trip to Italy, staying here made us feel welcomed and at home. I would love to come back and stay again. Please take their advice on where to visit and eat. All of it was spot on, and I'm glad we were able to experience visits to cities we normally wouldn't have.
Thanks for your sympathy and friendliness, Silvia and Antonio remind you with sincere affection.
We look forward to you soon
Absolutely stunning house, unforgettable holidays!
We had a dream holidays at Poesia Belvedere. We couldn't have chosen a better place for holidays in Tuscany, really. We were welcomed by Antonio and Sylvie with a cold drink, lovely ice cream and a basket of black berries and little plums straight from their gardens. They were amazing, very friendly and helpful hosts.
The house was stunning, very big with so many different rooms you could easily get lost in it at the beginning. At the same time each room was very different so being lost was like a big exploration trip! The house was in between of acres and acres of olive trees plantation? with a truly breathtaking views. It was very quiet hence we could sleep till noon if not our little baby that was there with us! It is a perfect place if you are looking for a house to spend family holidays and get some proper rest. I cannot recommend it enough, everything about Poesia Belvedere was superb and unforgettable. I would stay there for ever if I only could.
I stayed in many B&B before but I never felt so welcomed and well looked after as there. Highly highly recommended!!
We are sincerely moved to read these beautiful words!
Thank you for your affection and lovely review
Great House and host. Excellent location.
Me and my husband plus our two kids age 3 and 6 stayed in the villa for a week .It is a beautiful house and the owner Silvia and Antonio made us so welcome in their home. The villa is 25 minutes drive from Pisa airport. The nearest train station is about 20 minutes drive away ,with regular trains to Pisa and Florence. Silvia prepare beautiful food every morning and provided a great birthday meal for my husband's 50th birthday.We had a great time swimming in the pool which is clean and refreshing on a very hot day. I would recommend this place as its very central to travel to nearby city. We enjoyed driving to Volterra and Lucca.Our children loved Collodi the Pinochio park.
My family had a wonderful and memorable holiday in this villa that we are thinking of going back there for more beautiful memories.(Maybe next year).
We are very happy when our guests remain with a good memory of our house
Thank you for your kind words. It was great to communicate with you and to host you in our lovely place.
Your Kids are wonderful!
Excellent location and great hosts
Me and my husband plus our son age 16 plus friends of us stayed in the villa for a week. The owner Silvia and Antonio made us so welcome in their home. The villa is very spacious with thick walls and optimum air circulation if you have the windows a bit open. All bedrooms have air condition, except INFINITY bedroom, but due to the excellent air circulation we did not miss it. The nearest train station - Pontedera-Casciana Terme - is about 20 minutes drive away, with regular trains to Pisa and Florence. You could easily reach Siena by train from Empoli as well in approx. 1 hour. As it is a Bed+Breakfast Silvia prepares beautiful italian breakfast every morning with mokka coffee, fruit salad and a lot of Italian sweets. Our favourite restaurant for dinner was Ristorante Al Vecchio Molino in Buti. Silvia prepared also a fantastic dinner for us with excellent olives from their own trees. If you would like to have dinner at POESIA BELVEDERE we recommend you to have it on Monday, because a lot of restaurants in the surrounding are closed on Monday.
The pool is very clean and you find always a shady corner to protect yourselfs against the burning heat in the summer.
And last but not least we should mention another villa resident we felt in love - Balou, the very, very kindly watchdog who guards the whole area during the night and accompanied us on the walk to San Jacopo.
