Overview

Pomarance Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Two spacious apartments,very nicely furnished with heated pool

We live in a stone house built in the 1850s, in Micciano near Volterra (Pisa). In our estate there are two apartments for rent, for lovers of the peace and beauty.

• Heart of Tuscany

• Heated swimming pool

• On the border of a natural reserve

• Wifi, internet connection

• Mountain bikes

• Hiking

• Estate olive oil, certified organic

• Near beaches and Tuscan medieval towns

Volterra, San Gemignano, Firenze, Lucca and Pisa. We are located next to a natural reserve of 5.000 hectares (12.500 Acres).

On the property you can find your favourite spot, overlooking the Tuscan hills sitting under a large holm oak or a juniper tree just gazing at the olive grove. You can walk along the trail to the spring of sulphurous water, passing by the pond where the small wild animals come to drink. If you are lucky you may see a turtle along the way.

We want to pay respect to the nature and its resources. Our olive oil production is in the process of obtaining organic farming certification, and regarding the tourist apartments we’re preparing for the Ecolabel approval.

Authentic Tuscany with Breathtaking View.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of being able to stay in Authentic Tuscan Farmhouse, it has everything I was looking for. Pietro and Eva are amazing hosts. Everything was provided: Clean bath towels, beach towels, dishes, sheets, everything you need. Pool is nice and refreshing. It feels so nice to come back and relax near the pool after day of exploring the area. Farmhouse is very stylish and rustic at same time with modern touch. The cottage located on amazing property in real not spoiled tuscany. There are very nice small villages around there to do sight seeing and wine tasting. No need to have any supermarket around because local stores provide better quality of produce from local places. Absolute pleasure to deal with, thanks again to Eva and Pietro.

A truly peaceful bit of rustic beauty in Tuscany!

  • 4 of 5

This home is tucked in the countryside away from it all. Very beautiful setting, wonderful hosts and an authentic Tuscan farmhouse.

The property is a bit of a drive from any substantial town or village so pick up groceries before hand but once you are organized just sit back and relax.

The drive to all the sights is pleasant and scenic and will take you any where from 35 minutes (Volterra) to 1hr 15 minutes (San Gimignano) and approximately an hour to the seaside. Pietro and Eva are friendly and caring and want to make sure you are having a wonderful stay.

Beautiful area with distant views of countryside. Comfortable lodging and a great place for taking day trips into the surrounding areas including the nearby seashore. Quiet and peaceful place to relax. PIetro and Eva are gracious hosts always available to ensure their guests are attended well. This a place we would return to.

A Wonderful Tuscan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A great place to retreat into the Tuscan hill. Clean, spacious, and well-maintained. Owners very helpful and friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a low-key retreat, where nature can be enjoyed along with the world of Tuscan wine!

Toskana pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir möchten uns auf diesem Wege nochmals ganz herzlich bei Eva und Pietro für den wunderschönen Urlaub bedanken. Vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag haben wir uns in ihrem liebevoll gepflegten Anwesen i Casali wohlgefühlt. Für Essens- und Ausflugtipps standen sie uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite.

Sogar als wir bei der Heimfahrt Probleme bei einer Tankstelle hatten, haben die beiden dies für uns geregelt.

Für einen ruhigen, entspannten Urlaub inmitten toskanischer Hügel mit eigenem Pool sehr zu empfehlen.

Beautiful, relaxing agriturisimo in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon after driving from Rome. We were struck by the absolute beauty of the scenic environment and the beautiful restored farm house that was to be our place for the next six days. Pietro and Eva were warm and had provided us with a bottle of wine (with plenty more that was in the room for purchase). The appliances were easy to use (but we really didn't want to cook!). The property was clean and comfortable. But even before we arrived, Pietro kept us informed and gave us information about places we would likely want to visit. Though the location is a remote village near the coast, access to Florence, Pisa, etc. were relatively easy. The close proximity to Volterra and Cecina made it ideal to experience the charm of Tuscany. The farmhouse is located on top of a hill with an amazing panorama. If you want a retreat from the hustle and bustle, this is an ideal spot. I kept thinking that this is the place to "write my book?. Restaurants near by were marvelous. In nearby Celine, we had the best bruschetta ever and pasta that I could eat every day. I would be happy to endorse this place for a romantic retreat. This was where we celebrated our anniversary.and my wife was a very happy person (she even got to hold a 20,000 euro purse at the Gucci museum in Florence. Fortunately, there was no pressure to buy it!
