We particularly liked the outside space, large garden well equipped with tables / chairs / loungers. The whole family was able to get together for meals outside in the sun or shade, equally everyone could find a quiet place if privacy was needed. The house, kitchen garden & outbuildings were filled with artefacts - every time you walked into a room you saw something different. Despite arriving late, Nora was excellent in showing us around the property & the wine and provisions were a lovely touch. Just over 1 hour from Pisa & approx 2 hours from Florence, this mountainous retreat was just what we were looking for. Highly recommend to family & friends.

The long and winding beautiful drive up is not for the faint hearted. You are well rewarded with the stunning views and serenity of the place. It is exactly what we expected. Everything was perfect , Luca was so generous with helping us with the wifi. We enjoyed the comfort and the views. The surrounding villages and city's are so charming. All in all we had a lovely time! Thank you Lisa and Luca. We would love to come back again! Much thanks, Rene, Nelly, Victoria, and Frankie
