Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Calci, Italy your home away from home

If you a planning a visit to the historic city of Pisa, but do not wish to stay in the heart of this busy tourist destination, you may wish to consider the accommodation in Calci as a more relaxed alternative. Staying in Calci also allows you to enjoy the rural nature of Tuscany, with a full range of outdoor activities possible to make the most of the surrounding unspoilt countryside. Calci dates back to the 8th century and also has a number of attractions of historic interest.

Things to do in Calci, Italy

Calci is a comune that is made up of several small hamlets and settlements, known in Italy as frazione. As a result, a trip to Calci can turn into something of a mini expedition, as you move between the hamlets and discover what each has to offer. The main settlement is La Pieve, which is also the home of the majority of Calci accommodation options.

The main attraction in Calci is Pisa Charterhouse, a former monastery which is now the home of a natural history museum and part of the University of Pisa. Amongst other exhibits the museum houses a large dinosaur skeleton collection and a series of 16th century frescoes. Other sites of interest in Calci include the 11th century Parish Church and the 14th century La Certosa di Pisa.

Calci also lies on the fringes of a Natural Park, which is a great place for a morning walk to burn off the excesses of the previous evening. Though you may not plan on over-indulging yourself, with the delightful cuisine that Tuscany has to offer you may find it impossible to resist. Calci has a number of restaurants, and local ingredients such as olives, pastas, fish, cheeses and truffles feature prominently in recipes.

The Leaning Tower is of course the most famous monument in Pisa, but there are many others, including a vast number of churches, palaces, bridges and other sites of historical interest. There are also more modern attractions to be enjoyed, and an evening meal of local dishes and wine, on the terrace of one of the city’s fine restaurants may well be the highlight of your Tuscan holiday experience.

With average daily high temperatures of 29C, summer is the most popular time for a vacation in Calci. There are, however, many other months of the year in which a holiday can be enjoyed, including the period from April to June, when temperatures are starting to warm up and rainfall is starting to drop.

The accommodation is very good, with everything you need for your visit. The noises from the music school get on your nerves at times and the lack of air conditioning makes it uncomfortable at times, but overall I would recommend this apartment and would certainly stay there again if I go to lucca in the future.

The house is lovely, characterful and cool inside. The balcony with tiled roof is just so lovely to sit on - great view looking down on the valley on trees and olive groves whilst for most of the day in the welcome shade. The valley bottom church bells chime softly in the distance. The dawn chorus birdsong and view from the ground floor double bed were lovely. The village of Valdottavo with some shops on the valley floor takes 5-10 minutes to reach by car down the narrow and steep road that winds up the hill and is a bit challenging especially the last 200m stretch which has a jagged rock face and sharp turn. Parking is 50 yards from the house. The nearest big town of Lucca takes about 20 minutes to drive to and it is simply lovely. The big car parks round the outside are free, with just a few minutes walk into the walled town. Lucca has many piazzas. Our favourite was Puccini which was a bit quieter than the others and had some nice restaurants reasonably priced. We much preferred Lucca to Florence. We thought it was prettier, much less busy and churches were free to go in. Walking from the house in the nearby woods was nice in the shade, but fairly energetic as quite hilly. We were sad to leave such a lovely spot.
