“Great non-touristy place”
Reviewed February 6, 2010

I wanted somewhere away from the usual tourist haunts & was a bit dubious about Marina di Pisa after reading about it being a bit of a run down town but it was perfect - loads of character, a bit shabby in some places but quiet, friendly, close to Pisa with regular buses. It's on the coast so there's handy beaches.
The B&B was lovely, breakfast is served outside on the patio so is not available in winter &, in fact, some days we were squashed under the umbrellas when it was raining whilst haveing breakfast but it wasn't a problem. The owner is very pleasant as is the lady who cleans the rooms & serves breakfast. The rooms all go off the 'patio' area & when we first arrived I wondered if I'd made a mistake in booking but I hadn't. The rooms (we had 2 double bedrooms though I think the others just had 1) were fine, clean, with TV, fridge & bathroom was fine too, not very big but absolutely ok. There were no tea & coffee making facilities in the room but the facilities on the patio were available at all times.

I would certainly go back to stay here again. Oh & the owner has pushbikes that are available free of charge so we cycled a few kms down the road to a secluded beach. The road is flat so was no problem. The 1 litre cartons of wine for 1 euro 30 are quite drinkable too!!

Stayed October 2009, traveled as a couple

Enrico gave us a very warm welcome and treated us like good friends the whole time we stayed there. Marina kept the bedroom and bathroom spotless with clean towels every day. We used local transport for the first half of the holiday, - bus to Pisa 1.6 euro and train to Florence 5.60 euro - very cheap. We hired a car for 3 days and visited the Chianti Wine festival in Greve. Next time I wont drive so I can use up all my vouchers on trying all the wonderful wines from Tuscany. We visited Lucca,an old walled city about 30 minutes drive from Marina di Pisa - well worth a visit. I would be more than happy to return to La Papaya because we were looked after so well, nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you Enrico, Marina & Mama for making our wedding anniversary a very happy time.

A really nice B&B in Marina de Pisa ... but a bit pricy.

Look at the map - the B&B is situated quite some way outside Pisa. And you have to drive the same road for 15 minuted every day when leaving the B&B. So I wouldn't advise you to stay more than 3 days.

The hosts are really nice - nice breakfast from the family's food store - and the possibility to sit outside the rooms in the evening.

I don't hesitate to recommend this to everyone else.
