Perfect location to visit Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a small village which is very close to the Fi-Pi-Li, a highway connecting the cities of Florence, Pisa and Livorno. This makes is very easy to see all the most important cities within a 60 minutes drive from your apartment (Pisa 30 min, Siena 60min).

There are several supermarkets, we've chosen "coop" in Santa Maria a monte, which is a five minutes car drive and offers everything you need. There is a little bakery and shop in the town as well.

The apartment is in a quiet road and the owners, Vivetta and Marco, have done everything to make you feel at home far away.

It is very clean and spacious, offers a lot of additional things such as a washing machine, a dishwasher, few fans to avoid heat in your rooms, enough towels, an ironing board in a separate room in your apartment, 2 bathrooms (one with a tub, the other one with a shower), a room to store your suitcases, enough tableware and glasses, cups, bowls, etc. We enjoyed cooking there and there was also a baking oven. The garden is well-kept and clean. Our children loved to go out in the morning and see what the turtles do.

The rooms and the whole apartment are filled with a lot of beautiful things such as paintings or nice furniture that make you feel home.

There is no pool but I have to admit, we didn't miss it even though we were traveling with two kids.

I think it is a perfect apartment when you travel a lot around Tuscany but you want to feel home and relaxed when you come "home" to Castel del Bosco. There are several pools you can go to, we recommend "le barbate" in Montopoli, which is a three minutes drive (same direction as the supermarket). You pay 22 Euros (in August) for a family for the whole day. The way to the sea isn't very far (30 minutes) so we enjoyed the sea a few times as well (Marina di Pisa, Tirrenia, ...).

We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and family (we already did) and would also like to come again one day.

Vivetta and Marco are very friendly and helpful. Vivetta sent us a list of sights with information about the driving distance and several other information. That was really helpful to plan the visit. There are a lot of travel guide book in the apartment and Vivetta has collected a lot of information you can use.

We loved the Tuscan cake she baked for us and absolutely enjoyed the meal she cooked for us after coming home from a long day at the sea. Thanks again, Vivetta and Marco!

More than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding villa. If you're travelling through Italy by car and looking for a place under the Tuscan sky. This is the place to stay. Very convenient for travelling to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimigniano, etc, not to mention the stunning Tuscan countryside. For a change of pace we took the train to Florence but drove everywhere else. The in-car GPS never let us down. A heartfelt thank you to both Vivetta and Marco for their warm welcome and to Vivetta for her many surprises of delicious Tuscan fare. A most memorable and unforgettable holiday. Highly recommended place to stay in beautiful Tuscany. Mille grazie Vivetta e Marco.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Fabulous Villa. From the second we arrived, Vivetta and Marco the owners were wonderful. A beautiful welcome, the villa was exceptional. Large rooms and spotlessly clean. Lots of information for anyone looking to tour around the beautiful Tuscany countryside and very convenient for travelling to Florence, Pisa and Lucca, not to mention numerous stunning Tuscan villages. Both our daughters joined us, aged 15 and 21 , the villa was spacious enough to give all 4 of us space and comfort. A massive thank you to both Vivetta and Marco who made our holiday special, cooking us delicious Italian pasta, cake and bread. We would definitely love to visit again in the future. Highly recommended.

Perfection in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Dei Pini is nestled on a quite street surrounded by beautiful gardens. Our mornings were spent having coffee, listening to the birds, and enjoying the lush gardens from our balcony. Our days and early evenings were spent exploring the region. And having this beautiful home to come back to after a long day of exploring was bliss. Vivetta and Marco were warm, welcoming, and filled with great tips about the region! And having laundry facilities available, was a huge help! I can't wait until my next visit!

Excellent Location, Hosts and Place to Stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The Villa D ei Pini was perfect for our family of 4 to stay as we explored Tuscany for the first time. It was spacious, clean and in a great location to easily get to the key sightseeing locations. Vivetta and Marco, were great hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at the Villa - they gave good recommendations on local restaurants and places to visit. The home cooked pasta meal they treated us to on our last night was truly amazing. Thank you - All the best from Ciff, Jan, Josh and Jamilah.
