Reviewed September 27, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Donatella and Antonio were perfect hosts who made our first Tuscan experience as effortless as possible. Their villa is amazing and our apartment was extremely spacious and had all the amenities and comforts we needed. Although slightly off the beaten track, there is a bus and train station within walking distance and the centre of `Pisa and `Florence are 7mins...

Management response:

Thank you Jerard for you review. We are happy to learn that you had a pleasant stay with us.

Piero a Grado (basilica).In June a festival is held in Pisa, called 'Giugno Pisano' with music, traditonal games, exhibitions. On June 16th at night 'Luminaria di S.
