Just returned from a fabulous 4 night stay at this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse. Can't fault the booking process, communication with owners or house in any way. Set on a quiet street but only 30 min drive from Pisa airport it had the views, comforts and facilities we wanted. Stayed with a group of 4 girls in Alba which was one of the larger ground floor apartments. We had been left a delicious lunch and bottle of local wine for our arrival which was most welcome. Francesco very friendly and helpful. The three resident cats were also lovely! We didn't eat out much as preferred to make the most of the delicious food and wine found locally so spent a lot of our time on our terrace or by the pool.
Would recommend having a car as we would have been a bit stuck without this. There are local shops but the supermarket is approx 10 mins drive away.
The villa is in a beautiful location as the views are amazing, as described in the previous reviews. There were a few issues at the Italian end over our request to arrive in the evening but these were promptly dealt with when we contacted the owner. The villa is nicely presented and the pool is beautiful and very clean: our three children had wonderful times in it. However, during our stay the pool was closed at random times for cleaning, sometimes for a whole morning without notice, so it was not always easy to plan our days. A significant issue for us was that we arrived in the evening to see a notice that we should not drink the water or even use it to cook/wash dishes with, had not brought bottled water with us and the shops were shut (our daughter was ill in the night which made having no drinking water very difficult). This information needs to be on the website to allow people to stock up with water before arriving. All in all however we really enjoyed our stay and the location was very central with many interesting places less than an hour's drive away.
