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

The thriving village of Palaia lies deep in the Tuscan countryside in Italy, just 40km from the centre of Pisa. Despite its popularity as a base of exploration, tourism has appeared to have no influence on the village, leaving it brimming with Italian charm, whose only cultural influence stems from the Tuscan way of life. There are very few places you can take a holiday rental villa in such authentic Italian surroundings.

Things to do on holiday in Palaia, Italy

The village is perfectly set up for a week in the sun, with supermarkets, post offices and a tourist information office. Italians flock to Palaia for the restaurants through. There are a handful of exquisite restaurants with the village serving local delicacies, especially the family owned Peti Rosso and the open air pizzeria just down the road in Colleoli. If you would like to learn a few Tuscan dishes during your stay in Palaia accommodation, there are some excellent courses available which quickly teach you to reproduce some of the finest dishes native to the region.

Palaia is an ancient village which dates back to Etruscan times, although much of the reconstruction of the village occurred during the Middle Ages. There are some beautifully sturdy monuments in the village, which can be toured leisurely on foot.

The Tuscan countryside which surrounds a villa in Palaia is known around Europe for its natural beauty. Walking, cycling and riding holidays are extremely popular in this part of Tuscany, with visitors flocking from their homes to experience the tranquil beauty of Tuscany, travel through the iconic landscape and return to their Palaia rental villa weary yet invigorated for a glass of local wine by the pool. There are some excellent bridle paths and footpaths surrounding Palaia, details of which are available from the Palaia tourist information centres. The countryside which surrounds Palaia is unspoilt enough to allow some excellent fishing opportunities and the chance to hunt wild boar. Another excellent way to see the region is from the air. There are micro-lighting centres around the region.

There is a great golf course just 20 minutes from Palaia village centre. Although the facilities are not world class, the course itself is an absolute treat, with 18 testing holes littered with deep bunkers and taxing water obstacles.

Places to visit on holiday in Palaia, Italy

Taking a holiday rental in Palaia is the perfect solution for discovery of Tuscany’s most impressive sights. Pisa is just 25 minutes from Palaia and the cultural treasure chest of Florence is 40 minutes away. Both are easily accessible by car from Palaia, although travelling by train is a more relaxing way to visit Florence as driving and parking in the city can be a tough ask.

The nearby village of Colleoli is a real asset for tourism in Palaia. The spa facilities are wonderfully luxurious, and a great place to relax after a day investigating the Tuscan countryside.

Weather in Palaia, Italy

Holidays to Palaia are most popular from the start of May until the end of October when the weather is perfect for exploration of the countryside. In July and August, daily temperatures average around 27˚C, with daily peak in the 30’s, which can be a little uncomfortable for long afternoons walking. In the winter, temperatures remain above 10˚C for much of the time, making a holiday home in Palaia perfect for a winter retreat.

Travel to Palaia, Italy

Located just 40kms from Pisa International Airport (PSA), a holiday rental in Palaia is easily reached from the UK. easyJet provide a range of cheap flights to Palaia, although there are other airlines servicing Pisa. It is advised you rent a hire car so as to get the most from a Palaia holiday, but there are good train connections to the village if you would prefer not to drive during your holiday.

Review for stay from 16 September 2017 to 16 September 2017

5 of 5
We had the most incredible vacation at this villa. Sabrina was wonderful from start to finish-- welcoming us with a lovely basket of goodies, bringing us cake and wine throughout our stay, and making the check-in and check-out process a breeze. The house itself is wonderful exactly as shown in photos. The yard/garden is well-manicured and vibrant. The house is clean with good sized bedrooms. We traveled with two young children and Sabrina provided a playhouse and slide for the yard-- such a treat! The property is totally child-friendly. Sabrina lives in an attached villa with her family, but you rarely see or hear them. It was quite private and remote, and perfect for our family. We would absolutely recommend this villa and would love to come back again!

Overall: The caretaker was fantastic upon our arrival! He provided an excellent tour and answered all of our questions. The villa exceeded my expectations and I have already recommended it to several of my friends. Enjoyed Most: Every bedroom had its own sitting room and bathroom. And lots of space for all of us to hang out and not be on top of each other. Enjoyed Least: Not really a complaint, but the dryer took forever to dry. Surrounding Area: Very serene and peaceful. Also, our group can get quite loud, especially with wine, so it was great not to have anyone super close by. ) Nearby Events or Locales: San Gimignano. Technically it was in walking distance (about 2 miles away), but very hilly, so we didn't walk. Tips or Restaurants: Great restaurants in San Gimignano and Cesani winery in Volterra - wine tasting at Podere Marcampo and dinner at Ristorante Enoteca 'Del Duca'. Directions: We used GPS so it was super easy. Check In Out: It was efficient and excellent!
