“Very clean, very comfortable, very friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Colle Farmhouse is a lovely, homey, comfortable apartment conveniently located in a picturesque village conveniently located close to Luca, Pisa, Florence. This was the PERFECT location for my wife and I to spend a few days after our Mediterranean cruise. The setting is quiet, the yard peaceful, and the apartment well appointed. And clean, clean, clean! It is so refreshing to check into a place that on first impression you know is kept to a high standard and with pride of ownership. The bonus for us was the lovely, helpful hosts. Lucy and Clive were very helpful to us in planning our daily ventures, and their local insight was appreciated. It is a great spot, fairly priced, and well managed. I highly recommend Colle Farmhouse to anyone who wants a vacation spot tucked away in a super location.

“Wonderful Tuscany experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A beautiful property in a unique rural setting surrounded by olive groves. Walking distance to the nearby picturesque village which has little grocery shops , bakers, butchers and a lovely cafe. There are also 2-3 lovely restaurants nearby. An ideal location central to exploring all the towns and countryside of Tuscany. Lucy and Clive were very hospitable and very helpful with maps, timetables and directions. Loved the beaches. Visited the stunning city of Lucca, The tower at Pisa and the wonders of Florence.

“Splendid Base for Experiencing Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Beautiful apartment set in rural Tuscany with close connections to the cities of Lucca, Pisa and Florence. Public transport is somewhat limited but still manageable if you are prepared to spend the evenings in the village (there is a bar and a restaurant located close by - 5/10min walk along with a fairly large supermarket). Welcoming and supportive hosts who provided maps of the local cities and advised where the cheapest ice cream shops etc were. Me and my friend were backpacking so we found it a useful location to base ourselves for a few days and see a few places utilising buses/trains. Pisa airport is not to far away via car but I would recommend speaking to the owners about appropriate transport methods if you were not using a car (we were travelling by train into Lucca).

“Beautiful Tuscany retreat set in idyllic scenery with easy access to Lucca, Florence, Pisa and more.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Clive and Lucy were excellent hosts giving recommendations for places to eat both locally and in Lucca, Florence and Pisa ,which we followed and were not disappointed, getting quality and an authentic Italian experience .The apartment was stunning with a beautiful terrace and back drop of the local mountains and olive groves.We shall be returning as there is just too much to see or do in one week.

“A wonderful introduction to the timeless beauty of Tuscany.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

A great holiday combining the rustic charm of Tuscany with the beauty and history of the area. The apartment was spotless and had all the facilities required. Clive and Lucy were on hand to give that extra advice only known to a local that made the trip extra special. We have already recommended the apartment to friends and look forward to returning in the near future.

“A lovely rural location in Tuscany with friendly and helpful hosts.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This was our first time in Italy and we couldn't have chosen a better location. The countryside of Tuscany is stunning. The farmhouse was situated in a lovely village with local shops, pleasant walks and restaurants within walking distance. It was easy to go sightseeing either by bus or train or by car. Lucca, the mountain area, Piza, Florence, Vinci and the coast were easily to get to and not too far away as was Sienna.
Lucy, Clive and their charming four boys made us so very welcome. They gave us lots of useful information on the local area and directions. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They lent us a D.V.D on a wet day and took us to the local church flower service. All the locals were very pleasant and helpful.
The accommodation was rustic, comfotable and typically Italian.
We would recommend this property and will certainly be returning.
