A Casa di Lizzy is in the hills of Pisa centrally located at the point where the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Florence meet. It is a typical 19th century Tuscan farmhouse with wooden beams and cross vaults, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. My husband and I will welcome you back after visits to Volterra, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, Florence or the seaside, which are all less than an hours driving distance away. If you prefer you can take a walk in the peace of the surrounding countryside or relax in our garden tasting our extra virgin olive oil and wine that we offer to welcome our guests.
Breakfast - with fruit juices, cereals, yogurt, homemade bread, cakes and croissants, jams made with our fruit, salame and cheese - is served on a big old table under the cross vaults and it is the perfect time to talk with us or the other guests from all over the world, exchanging ideas about the best places to visit, the best restaurants, festivals or Tuscan traditions.
We will also take you on a walk to our vineyard and olive-yard, telling you everything about olive oil and wine and giving you the chance to admire a stunning view over the hills.
We do not rent houses, nor apartaments, but bedrooms with private bathroom and breakfast. Our three bedrooms – the yellow one, the green one and the blue one – each one with private bathroom, are on the first floor. The entrance to the bedrooms is independent, so our guests can come in and go out when they like. They are furnished simply, but comfortably; they have old hand-decorated wardrobes, beautiful ceilings with wooden beams and terracotta tiles, electric kettle and cups and they overlook our garden and the surrounding hills. They can be single, double or triple with king-size beds that can be converted into twins if required. It is possible to add another bed or a cradle for babies.
We have a fridge for our guests who can buy their food and have lunch or dinner in the garden. We will give them dishes, glasses and cutlery free of charge, but they cannot cook nor use our kitchen.
While here you will be able to attend cooking classes, visit stunning wineries, buy cheese and pasta from the farms that produce them or relax at Casciana Terme Spa.
