About Marie and Lorenzo

I moved from chaotic Moscow City to a peaceful Medieval town in Tuscany a few years ago. It became my second home and the place I would like to come back to again and again after traveling all around the world. This little village is so charming and genuine that I fell in love with it at first sight.

Marie and Lorenzo purchased this house in 2008

Why Marie and Lorenzo chose Valdarno Inferiore

Among all the towns around Pisa this was the most genuine and full of history. Close to railway stations and airports, but still very quiet and surrounded by incredibly beautiful landscapes. It's close to mountains as well as to the sea. It's a strategically ideally located property if you want to get easily to Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Livorno, Siena, San Gimignano or Volterra. It will take less than an hour to drive to Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi beaches.

What makes this house unique

We are lucky to be helped by our friends Lorenzo and Marie (seen in the photo) who will be dealing with your booking enquiries and will meet you at the property. They live nearby and know the area really well, so you can rely on them with anything you may need to know about this region.

Lovely property well fitted out and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are extremely lucky to have Marie and Lorenzo as their agents.Pre holiday we received a substantial amount of really helpful information about the property.

On arrival we were greeted by Marie and she explained everything in relation to the house in great detail.Thereafter everything was plain sailing.Nothing was too much trouble.Bookings were made on our behalf at various restaurants, friendly and helpful advice was given in relation to places to visit,how to get there etc.On our last day we were invited to Marie and Lorenzo's house for drinks. Their property is lovely and has been lovingly extended and modernised.

When we left the following morning Lorenzo was kind enough allow us to follow him to the local railway station to drop off Jacqueline because we were unsure of the way there.

So in a nutshell well done Marie and Lorenzo and many many thanks for helping to make our stay so memorable.

Colin and Jacqueline.

Owner's Response: Dear Colin and Jacquline, what a pleasure it was to welcome you and both to Vicopisano. It was wonderful to read your kind review and to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Due Torri. It was great to be able to spend some time together and get to know you a little bit more, it felt like spending time with distant friends who we had got to know through our previous emails. It's always great to finally meet the people behind those many emails! You were absolutely fantastic guests and we hope you return to Vicopisano again one day in the future, until then take care and best wishes. Marie and Lorenzo

Fabulous house in a delightful Medieval Village

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts Marie & Lorenzo gave great attention to detail to ensure our stay at was a memorable one.

From Marie's personalised tour of the village upon our arrival and the complimentary fruit basket and chilled Prosecco that greeted us to the daily travel and dining recommendations, we cannot speak highly enough of our time spent in Viccopisano at Casa due Torri

- Perfect location for discovering nearby locations like Pisa, Lucca, Sienna, San Gimignano

Fantastic little house in Vicopisano

  • 5 of 5

We've had a wonderful family holiday in Vicopisano. The house was excellent and in a perfect location for exploring Pisa, Florence and Lucca. The house managers, Maria and Lorenzo, were very helpful and welcoming and gave us several good suggestions for local places to visit, shop and eat in. This was a great place to stay - we didn't want to come home!

Beautiful, well kept property

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well kept, clean and well equipped property with everything you will need for a wonderful stay. Marie and Lorenzo gave a very personal touch to our experience, sharing their local knowledge and making sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Marie gave us a short tour of the village when we arrived, suggested places to visit, and even made dinner reservations for us. The house is well located for travel throughout the area. It was a pleasure to be part of village life for the time we spent here. Hopefully we will be able to come back again soon!
