“Good location, lovely area”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

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

Fattoria di Colleoli provided a perfect break after 1 and 1/2 week of walking through Paris and Rome. We stayed in Il Camino which is an apartment located on a 2nd floor with beautiful views. It is a very spacious and charming apartment that easily accomodated all 5 of us. The enourmus fireplace looked great. Initailly we planned to do alot of driving but all 5 of us enjoyed the place so much that we decided to spend most of the week on site, relaxing by the pool, eating delicous bruchettas with a beer and wine from the bar. In the evening we walked into Colleoli or drove to Palaia for dinner. Sabrina and the rest of the 'crew' mades us feel very welcomed.
We would love to come back and stay for 2 weeks.

Room Tip: Il Camino is perfect for up to 6 people, with 2 bedrooms (one with double bed the other with 2 singl...

Just back from our second year at Fattoria di Colleoli. We had the best time. This place is a hidden treasure it is set in the most idyllic surroundings. We stayed at il Fienel a four bedroom rustic farmhouse. There is a fantastic garden with a great area for eating al fresco. Nearby there is a pool and bar and the staff there are so friendly ! The area itself is stunning with two hotels with great restaurants within a three minute walk. Also very close by there is a fantastic Pizza restaurant . At night time the walk home is made quite magical by all the fireflys . Yes you do need a car as the village is about a fifteen minute drive. Over the two weeks we visited Florence , Pisa and Forte die marmi. There is lots to do if you choose too or if you just want to eat good food and relax in the sun I couldn't think of a nicer place .

We stayed in the three-bedroomed Ill Battorrica apartment block in the Fattoria De Colleoli. It was basic but excellent value for money and with access to all of the facilities on the resort of Borgo de colleoli including several pools, an excellent restaurant and bars we really couldn't soeak too highly of the resort, a real hidden gem. Whilst the location is probably no good if you don't drive, it is an excellent base if you do. We spent days in Pisa, Florence, Sienna, San Gimigiano, Volterra and more, all within about 30 minutes drive. It really is an excellent rural base from which to explore the areas greatest sights and then return to a peaceful rural retreat. The restaurant on-site was expensive but stunningly good food. In the local town the bars and shops are open at strange times but have all the basic provisions and also have excellent food for next to nothing money-wise. Indeed we had some of the very best pasta I have ever eaten for about 8 euros! Our fattoria was just down the road from the main borgo, but we had a wonderful outdoor terrace, BBQ area, parking spaces and our own pool. Highly recommended. We will be going back.

We really could not have asked for a more beautiful setting for our honeymoon. The amazing surroundings and the weather, ok I can't guarantee the weather everythime. But one things guaranteed is the magnificent views where ever you look.

All members of staff are happy to help and no job is too much trouble. The food at the wine bar is good, the only complaint I would have would be the lack of choice. small menu, but each dish just as good as the last.

Great for familys or couples the complax may lack facilities but the two pools are great for spening your days lazing about.

We will definitely be returning!
