Overview

About the property

On The Hills of Pisa, Surrounded By The Poetry Of Nature, Ancient Watchtower,

POESIA BELVEDERE

Ancient watchtower, dating back to the fifteenth century, then transformed into a farmhouse by the barons Silvatici, is located on the slopes of the Monti Pisani 3 km from the center of the beautiful medieval town of Vicopisano. It is said that this house Leonardo da Vinci, an admirer of Brunelleschi, has designed the impregnable fortress of Vicopisano in a framework that is exhibited in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, a copy of which is visible in our suite.

POESIA BELVEDERE is located at a height of 180 m.s.l.m. and it surrounded by olive groves and woods (more than 170,000 square meters). The particular location where is protects it from harsh winters or very hot summers and is an ideal starting point for lovers of hiking and mountain biking. For horse lovers can participate in organized lovely horse riding in a nearby riding.

Not far from the confines of our property is only 10 'walk brings you to the beautiful church of San Jacopo, set in the valley of the same name. It was built in the Lombard period (VIII century) and was originally dedicated to St. Mamiliano, as yet the inscription inscribed on the main portal.

Also for walkers in 40 'you can rise to over 500 meters above sea level The visiting Verruca Fortress located on its namesake mountain and overlooks and dominates the Pisan plain and the river Arno. Its strategic location has always made a valuable support for the safety of Pisa, in the centuries engaged in bloody struggles against the Florentines: the rock allowed a visual triangulation between Pisa and the castle of Vicopisano, in turn connected with the castle of Buti and all Lungomonte Pisa.

POESIA BELVEDERE is located 14 'from the railway station of Pontedera, 25' from the airport and train station 23Km Pisa and the Leaning Tower, 23 km from Lucca, 65 km from Florence, 90 km from Siena, 45 km from Volterra, 30 km from Montecatini Terme, 50 km from San Gimignano, 45 'from Forte dei Marmi, 35' from the beautiful cliffs of Livorno and 25 km from the beautiful beach of Marina di Vecchiano.

POESIA BELVEDERE being located in the south east of Monti Pisani and being at a height of 180 meters above sea level is a convenient starting point to an area, it probably already inhabited in Etruscan times, through paths that wind among oaks, chestnut trees and pine trees and crossing towns rich in history, art and culture. You can choose more difficult routes and suggestive or simpler and less tiring. The pool of 3x12 meters covered and uncovered, large terraces on which to sunbathe, the olive grove and the shadow of the forest, the calm, the silence and peace around the house surround this place, make it unique and give it poetically one unforgettable charm. Our host, simple and familiar, will make your stay exciting, pleasant and relaxing more than you can imagine for the health of your body and your spirit.

POESIA BELVEDERE is also not far from places known seaside resorts (Marina di Pisa and Tirrenia) for those who love the sea, while mountain lovers can reach the famous town of Castelnuovo Garfagnana, and in less than an hour, climb up to 1,500 meters (Radici Pass).

Guestbook comments from the manager

At first we were a bit nervous because there were no reviews when we booked this place. But it was more than we expected! The house is beautiful, the surroundings stunning and the owners, Antonio and Silvia were really nice and friendly. They gave us a lot of tips about where to visit. One day we were invited to a local party. Wich was very nice. The owners are very friendly but never too much. They give you privacy but are there when you need them. We had a great holiday!

Best relaxation ever..........

  • 5 of 5

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.

Favorite part of our trip to Italy

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely stunning house, unforgettable holidays!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Great House and host. Excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

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).

Wonderful house with loving hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had two wonderful weeks at the house and were so sad, when we had to leave. Silvia and Antonio made us feel so welcome, they were always so friendly and helpful at any time. Silvia´s dinner was always absolutely delicious and lovingly prepared, we enjoyed it so much. The house is very big, very cozy and very nicely decorated, we just loved it! The pool, the terrace and the environment is just so beautiful and perfect to relax. Everyone of us (2 adults, 2 children, 13 and 7) had a very nice and relaxing holiday full of beautiful memories. We will try to come back soon! Thank you for the great time!
