Owner's Response: Signor Borgman, siamo molto felici che abbia trascorso nella nostra casa una piacevole settimana. La nostra casa, compreso la cucina, è dotata di tutti i confort e piccoli elettrodomestici specificati nella pagina del sito, c'è anche una macchina del caffè, una vera moka, che fa un ottimo caffè, ma forse, lei voleva una macchina espresso-bar con capsule. La ringraziamo di nuovo per il suo soggiorno, e le auguriamo un ottima estate!

"Beautiful and quiet neighborhood. Owners and pleasant contact. Excellent accommodation for further trips to Italy. Campus wonderful and friendly. The only problem is the cars, and often close to passing the narrow alley next to the windows of the house often blowing the other cars descending from the mountains. I highly recommend this accommodation. Thank you and your wife for a nice stay and an unforgettable vacation."

Very nice apartment and helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6, and we all enjoyed the 11 days stay here. The apartment was more than big enough for us, and the owners were very helpful and friendly. They live nearby and it was always easy to get in contact with them.

It is around 15 km to the city of Pisa, and you will need a car. However, there is a car park for this apartment just outside the door.

Very nice walk to village Montemagno, and further up to the medieval Verruca castle ruin on top of the mountain. Fantastic view of the entire Pisa area from there!

By car, circa 25 minutes drive to beautiful beaches west of Pisa.

Supermarket, a few restaurants and gelaterias in Calci, 10 min walk from the apartment.

Highly recommended, and in our opinion, good value for money.

Graziosa come la valle

  • 5 of 5

27agosto. 9persone. Soggiorno appena terminato. Casa molto carina e spaziosa,grandi locali e 2bagni accoglienti,cucina attrezzatissima dotata di tutto ed ancor di più. Si può mangiare senza difficoltà in 9 in cucina,o in sala,o sul terrazzino oppure in giardino. Posizione strategica, in 40/60 min. si arriva al mare come alle città di pregio. Compito difficile descrivere i signori proprietari,simpatia,cortesia,disponibilità ed accoglienza di rara sincerità. Sicuramente un valore aggiunto alla loro proposta. Sforzandosi a voler trovare note negative non ne vengono in prossimi ospiti l'arduo compito.

Se avremo occasione non mancheremo di tornarci.

Grazie Elisa,grazie Renzo.
