A fabulous opportunity to step back in time into Italian history. What an amazing place owned by a beautiful lady dedicated to restore her home to show and share the wonders hidden over many years. If you love and appreciate Italian art this is the place to be. Very good location for getting to many of Italy's towns and cities... more

My husband & I stayed here for our honeymoon in September. It is a villa full of character; from the sweeping staircase to the amazing frescos on the walls & ceilings. Quiet & peaceful location and yet only 6 mins by train to Pisa. We had a wonderful holiday and look forward to returning in the future. more
