Overview

About the property

We live in a stone house in Micciano near Volterra (Pisa). In our estate there are two apartments for rent, for lovers of peace and beauty. The apartment "Lo Stallone" sleeps 6 + 1, has two bedrooms with queen size beds, a living room with a sofa bed 200 cm (78 inches) wide, a kitchen, two bathrooms with shower (hair drier available). An extra single bed is available. Each room, including the bathrooms, has at least one window. The kitchen is well equipped with regards to cookware and porcelain. It has induction cook top. The apartments are spacious, comfortable, and very nicely furnished with pleasant colours and materials, according to the Tuscan tradition. Wood tables and benches for open-air meals and recreational time near the apartment. Deckchairs available. Wireless connection.

On the property you can find your favorite spot, overlooking the Tuscan hills sitting under a large olm oak or a juniper tree just gazing at the olive grove. You can walk along the trail to the spring of sulphurous water, passing by the pond where the small wild animals come to drink. If you are lucky you may see a turtle along the way.

We want to pay respect to the nature and its resources. Our olive oil production has organic farming certification.

Amazing Home With Breath Taking Views

  • 5 of 5

We have a family of 5 and this home in the hills was amazing! It was roomy, very clean, updated yet it still had all the charm of a classic Tuscan stone farm house. It was about a 20 minute drive from the closest large town but there was a smaller town near by to get fuel, find a bank, pastry store, etc. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were updated. The owners, Pietro and his wife were very accommodating and kind. We would definitely come back here again and again!!!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

In one word: STUNNING.

We were on top of a Tuscan hill with a breathtaking views, in an uncontaminated setting, with a heated swimming pool. We couldn’t ask for a better place.

There are only two apartments for rent, with very nice and well-kept furniture and all amenities included, which makes it very peacefull.

The location is away from the cities but without been remote: It was so easy to travel to Volterra, San Gemignano and Sienna.

The hosts, Pietro and Eva are wonderful , happy to help us but discrete. We’ll definitely come back! Highly recommended.

Lovely times in Lo Stallone

  • 5 of 5

We, my brother and wife, myself and my partner, stayed for a week in I Casali. Pietro & Eva welcomed us and explained everything. We felt at home immediately. We had plenty of space the bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very good. We prepared breakfast every morning and enjoyed sitting around the kitchen table. Quite a few evenings we cooked. The kitchen is well equipped. We did a lot of sightseeing, visiting Lucca, Siena, Pisa and Florence as well as Volterra and San Gimignano. We had one lazy day hill walking in the adjoining nature reserve and lazing at the well kept heated pool. Another day we followed one of the many tips given by our wonderful hosts and drove to the beach at Marina di Bibbona, south of Cecina for a dip in the Mediterranean. Then we spent all day following the coast up to Livorno, stopping here and there. Our shopping we did in various supermarkets (e.g. Lidl) in Cecina. On the first day as we were coming down south from Pisa airport and we did another bigger shopping trip mid-week as wee were coming back from visiting Lucca. It was good to come back to the peace and quiet of I Casali after e.g. our our longer sightseeing trips to Lucca, Siena and Florence, when we were away all day. We did a lot of driving, but we shared the driving and took many wonderful scenic back roads. It was great and we saw a lot. An intensive week, a fun week. Wonderful Tuscany and I Casali. Highly recommended.

Perfect, tranquil and idillyic

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing holiday. The accommodation is faultless and set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, with far reaching breath-taking views. The villa is ideally located within an hour’s travelling distance of many places. The pool and gardens are tidy and well maintained. The nearby beaches are well worth a visit. The locals speak varying degrees of English but were always very happy and eager to welcome us. Pietro was a perfect host who was very helpful in suggesting places to visit, things to do and restaurants. We completely fell in love this place and will definitely return, leaving was very difficult! Highly recommended.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This property was GREAT. The apartment was comfortable, clean and well stocked for everything we needed. The views were wonderful and the ideas Pietro gave us for exploring the area were useful and all fun. The view from the rock in Micciano was wonderful. Pietro was available for all of our questions. It was a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the Tuscany country side.
