Fattoria reception was closed when we arrived (4pm) - took an hour to get keys to appartment (from the Borgo reception). Information signs etc not terrribly helpful. Appartment was in a small complex next to the road, detatched from the rest of the site - had its own small pool and gardens (but we were able to park 25m from the front door - unlike the rest of the site). Reasonably quiet, comfortable, but bedrooms very dusty, and kitchen area needed a makeover. Struggled to get a large suitcase up the spiral staircase to the bedroom. Rooms rather dark - small windows with some honeycombe-bricked - presumably to keep cool in summer. Staff very friendly and obliging. Good base for visiting Pisa, Volterra (by car) and Florence (took the train from Pontedera). Didnt use site restaurants - we were closer to the Tigli Pizzeria - very fair prices. Reasonable supermarket in Forcoli (10 mins drive), small shop and some restaurants in Palaia. Mosquitoes etc were a bit of a problem - used an insect spray inside the appartment and repellant for sitting out, but still ended up buying anti-histamine cream. Access from the Fi-Pi-Li autoroute tortuous (local roads winding and narrow), best to go via Pontedera junction, then Forcoli, rather than Palaia
