Would you like to spend a wonderful week in complete relaxation in the picturesque countryside of Tuscany? Our accomodation is what you are looking for. Located in one of the most beautiful tuscan landscapes, it is an enchantingly renovated country house set on the hillside near the little town of Palaia (Pisa), in a country property of nearly 10 acres, with fabulous views over a marvellous natural fresco where flowers, olives and vineyards are some of the main subjects. It is ideal for families with children or small groups of friends up to 7 people plus one baby. The accommodation is completely furnished in a rustic way, with traditional floors and nice wooden beam-ceilings. It develops itself all on one floor. The kitchen is complete with oven, table, a large hob, freezer and fridge. The sitting room, where you can relax on one comfortable sofa and 2 comfortable armchairs reading a good book, is carefully furnished and communicates with the dining room with big wooden dining table accomodating up to 8 people. 2 out of the 3 double bedrooms have bathroom in common (this bathroom has a roomy shower, basin, w.c. and bidet) while the 3rd is an ensuite bedroom (this bathroom has bathtub with shower, basin, w.c. and bidet). Each of the 3 bedrooms has 1 double bed (or 2 single beds), excellent wardrobe and TV. One single bed can be added upon request. Every little detail has been chosen with much care and interest. In the garden you can do the barbeque and enjoy a special meal under the beautiful gazebo or just sunbathe on the lounge chairs in the company of a refreshing aperitif! From our property guests may reach every interesting historical city or important seaside resorts in more or less one hour. The estate, completely isolated from noise and pollution of towns, is ideal for those who look for relax and privacy.

We stayed at Matteo's home recently and loved it. The house was great for our family of 7. Matteo was very good and responded to all our questions quickly. There was soap, dishwasher liquid, condiments, coffee, sugar and even ingredients to cook our first pasta dish. The views are incredible. The house is a bit hard to find at first but after that it is ok. Close to all towns by car. Thank you Matteo for allowing us to stay with you.
Perfect Tuscan get away
We stayed at the house of Matteo and father for 2 weeks. We were looking for a relaxing rural getaway for ourselves and the kids. The house over exceeded our expectations, its was clean, comfortable and much larger than the photos suggest and the views were spectacular. Other than the other house on the property, there were no neighboring houses. Matteo was the perfect host, he was always at hand whenever we had any questions and was a wealth of information about the region. Kids loved the homemade ice-cream in Palaia. I couldn't recommend this house more highly. We miss it aleady. David and Family.
Beautiful House in a peaceful location
The house is set in a quiet and tranquil location with views over the vineyards and surrounded by beautiful tuscany countryside. The house itself is fully of charm and character and is very well equiped and we recieved an incredibly warm welcome to the owners. We would certainly recommend this house to anyone who is either looking to relax and unwind or if you want to explore the area its within easy reach of the main road so that you can visit Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Voterre, Seina, and plenty of other local villages! For sun worshipers there is always a place in the garden to get the sun and for those who prefer the shade there is a lovely covered terrace so you can enjoy the garden without the heat of the sun! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would certainly book this house again when we come back to tuscany!
IDEAL PARA DESCASCAR Y CONOCER EN PROFUNDIDAD LA TOSCANA
Vivienda muy confortable, amplia y acogedora, con todas las comoidades. Ideal para descansar en la tranquilidad del campo. Pero a su vez, prácticamente equidistante de todos los puntos de interés de la Toscana, incluido los pueblos de Cinque Terres. Matteo y su padre, Fabbio, muy acogedores. Eramos un grupo de 6 adultos y no dudaríamos en nuevamente volver.
Very nice house, silent area, marvelous landscape
We enjoyed our stay a lot. The house is located in a very nice, typical Toskana landscape on the end of a hill with a nice view around. Although it is located only 16 minutes away from the highway to Pisa or Firence, the area is very silent. The house is big, there is a lot of place for a big family or 3 couples. 3 bedrooms and 2 separated bathrooms provide a big comfort. The kitchen contains all, what you need. Every room is nicely furnished, you will not miss anything.
The owner Matteo and his father Fabio are very kind and helpful, so that all formal activities around your stay will run fine.
We can recommed this house a lot.
beautiful villa in tranquil setting
we had 2 weeks in this villa with our family of 2 adults and 4 children. Matteo and his father Fabio, the owners were very welcoming and nothing was to much trouble for them throughout our stay. The Villa was very clean and spacious and although the kitchen could have done with a little more equipment we still managed to self cater and serve some lovely meals. The house was cool with fans provided and fly screens meant we weren't troubled by mosquitos The grounds and surrounding countryside are full of wildlife, (porcupines, pine martins, deer etc )fascinating buildings and villages, vineyards and olive groves and amazing views, especially at sunset. You do have to travel a little for local amenities but this is why we liked it so much. It was so tranquil set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside with plenty of quiet tracks for walking and for our regular running routes. We would definitely recommend a stay here.
Palaia is a very small village which has a gorgeous country around. It is definetly a good base to visit the beauties of Tuscany, living at the same time to relax of an uncontaminated environment. Only 15 mins by car and you are in Pontedera, small city but with lots of nice bars, pubs and restaurant as well as a lot of activities such as tennis, swimming pools, football and so on. If you want to visit the Dome, the Uffizi or Ponte Vecchio in Florence (the cradle of Renaissance) you can go either by car (1h20) or by train from Pontedera (50mins). One day you could go to Pisa and lay in the sun on the grass of Piazza dei Miracoli with the famous Leaning Tower in front of you (50 mins by car or 15 mins with the train from Pontedera). You cannot miss Siena with his marvellous Piazza del Campo which in August changes in a Horse race for the Palio. Moreover the location is well related with famous wine itineraries and it is for example very nice to drive along the road to San Gimignano, which passes through hills and valleys, and along which many farms produce and sell their own olive oil and wine for competitive prices. Montecatini Terme, Lucca, Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi and Castiglioncello are also easily reachable. We will be very happy to give information’s about place where to go and good restaurants!
