Beautiful flat in a stunning location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely flat: spacious and airy with a brilliant balcony. Panoramic views over the countryside and Rosignano to the coast and to the islands beyond. We were treated to views of Corsica most days and had beautiful sunsets every evening.

The pool was great - the kid's really loved it.

We - the parents - also really liked the village of Castellina. It had nice shops, bars and a good restaurant. Friendly people too.

We didn't think the flat was particularly well equipped (thus a 4 not a five); but the owner was very friendly and helpful.

Obviously Pisa, Florence, Volterra and Siena can be visited pretty easilt if you have a car - though we took the train to Florence from Pisa which worked well.

A deposit is required on arrival and we got this paid back into our bank a day or two after we departed.

All in all Piano primo provided an excellent location for a very enjoyable family holiday.

Very nice flat in a pretty location

  • 5 of 5

The flat meets the description in detail and exceeded our expectations.

The quiet location, the seaview, the nice furniture and the particular size of the flat have to be mentioned. To wake up, open the window and to enjoy the seaview in about 10 km was absolutely great for us.

The way to the beaches in the environment is between 15 and 30 minutes (by car), but for this effort we had a excellent variety of beautiful and sometimes very silent places.

We mate trips to Volterra, Sienna, Florenz und Livorno.

The landlords were very helpful and reacted directly when we had a little Problem

Thanks a lot for the nice holidays!

Spacious apartment - lovely base for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upstairs apartment, and would definitely recommend it to others. Both bedrooms were very spacious and the balcony was much bigger that it looks on the pictures, with space for a table and chairs, two sun loungers and barbecue. The master bedroom has french doors, which you could leave open at night so it didn't get too hot. The views from the balcony stretched right outo to sea, and there are lovely views of the the sunset. The pool was the perfect size for playing games of volley ball - a good size for a holiday pool.

The house is within 1/4 mile of the village of Castellina Maritimma (an easy walk for people of average mobility, but it is up a steep hill), which has a good, cheap pizzeria, as well as a handful of restaurants, a baker, a few small food shops and a bakers. There's also a post office (it doesn't have a sign but is next to the baker) and a couple of banks.

It's withing easy driving distance of a a range of beaches, and makes a good base for visits to Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Siena etc, although you would need a car.

The owner asked for a 150 Euro deposit, with was given back without him checking the apartment.

We had a lovely 2 weeks here, and I would definitely recommend this as a base for people looking for a holiday in a location within walking distance of a few restaurants, and easy driving distance of nice beaches and historical cities.

Review of First Floor Apartment (Piano Primo)

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable fortnight's stay in the top floor of this lovely villa in Castellina Marittima. The apartment was clean, well maintained, and nicely furnished. The facilities were as described in the listing on HomeAway's website. The rooms were more spacious than we had expected, with a big balcony and views over the hills and sea (even Corsica on a clear day). The property is a 5 minute walk (uphill) to the centre of the village, which has all the amenities we needed - several restaurants, bars/cafes, grocers shops, 2 banks/cash machines, and a post office. It is a 20 minute drive to good beaches at Vada, Mazzanta and Cecina, but we thought it nice at day's end to be able to leave those resorts and return to the hills where it was quieter and (slightly) cooler. There is an excellent beach at Golfo di Baratti, an hour's drive to the south, which we thought was worth the journey. The pool is great and much appreciated at the end of a hot day's sightseeing ! Pisa, Lucca and Volterra are all about an hour's drive away, Florence about 1.5 hours, but we thought Siena a bit too far (twice the distance to Volterra). We were charged 70 euros for cleaning, and were asked for a 150 euro damage deposit which was returned promptly at the end of our stay. Some basic items - sheets, towels, toilet roll, washing up liquid, tea towel and bin bags - were not provided but otherwise we had no complaints and thought the cost of the rental represented excellent value for money. All in all, I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to others.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances à Castellina Marittima.

Nous avons été bien accueillis par les propriétaires. L' appartement était confortable et fonctionnel. Le cadre était agréable.

Petit village typique de Toscane avec fêtes le week-end, trois épiceries, deux cafés, une boulangerie, un restaurant.

Depuis la maison, il est possible d'avoir un séjour balnéaire mais aussi de pouvoir visiter les merveilles de Toscane (Florence, Sienne, Pise, San Gimignano, Volterra, etc...)

Nous pourrions y revenir avec plaisir.

Entspanntes Sein in der Toscana !

  • 5 of 5

Die Fotos und die Beschreibung entsprechen dem, was man tatsächlich vorfindet. Die Vermieter sind nicht vor Ort, aber immer gut erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit. Eine sehr stilvoll eingerichtete, großzügige Wohnung mit der nötigen Grundausstattung. Die Lage ist fantastisch - sehr ruhig und für Wanderer und Rennradfahrer bestens geeignet. Die historischen Städtchen sind als Tagesausflug gut zu erreichen. Castellina Marittima bietet neben kleinen Bars zwei gute Restaurants und kleine Läden für den täglichen Bedarf.

Der schöne Strand ist mit dem Auto in 25 Minuten erreichbar, der Pool am Haus ermöglicht eine kleine Erfrischung.

Entspannte Ferien, für die die keine Animation brauchen, garantiert!

Car: recommended

Our house with sea view located in an area of ​​great historical and tourist interest. As for the story and the art is just a few kilometers from Pisa to Volterra. Without neglecting Livorno with its stronghold: the first port city of the Medici family in 1500. Do not miss the Bolgheri area with the vineyards, the famous wine and cypress trees. For the choice of beaches, from Castellina not spoiled: south you can find sandy beaches and shady pine forests; north rocks, rocks and the sea of ​​Castiglioncello, famous seaside resort since the nineteenth by choice Macchiaioli (the Impressionists of Italy).

Castellina In addition you can hike in the woods, mountain bike, dine at many festivals, go to the spa of Casciana. Do not forget for smaller water park of Cecina and for lovers of nightlife, there are many on the coast where the locals spend pleasant evenings.
