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.

A tranquil oasis. Couldn't fault the experience

5 of 5
Marilia was an amazing host and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The property was clean, well equipped and surrounded by the beautiful Tuscan hills. We would recommend this to anybody looking for a peaceful retreat that is less than an hours drive from Florence.

Palaia - cudowny wypoczynek

5 of 5
Co zadecydowało o wyborze tego mieszkania na kilka dni wypoczynku ? Widok z okna. Pierwsze wrażenie na miejscu ? Zdjęcia i opisy w internecie okazały się prawdą :) Widok z okna jest przepiękny. Elisa bardzo ciepło przyjęła mnie i moją żonę. Zaproponowała pomoc w razie potrzeby. Przekazała nam sporo porad i propozycji – co warto zobaczyć w okolicy, gdzie można coś zjeść. Na wieczorne posiłki i relaks nam najbardziej przypadł do gustu klimatyczny Peggio Palaia Pub. Mieszkanie jest jasne, czyste i fajnie urządzone. Jest w nim wszystko czego potrzeba w czasie krótkiego pobytu. Słoneczne poranki i zapach kawy z ekspresu nie pozwalają o tym miejscu zapomnieć. Palaia to urocza miejscowość z dala od tłumów turystów. Położona w centrum Toskanii stanowi świetną bazę wypadową np. do Florencji, Pizy, Sieny, San Giminiano i innych mniej czy bardziej znanych miejsc. Palaia to świetny wybór, jeśli szukasz spokojnego mieszkania z dala od wielkomiejskiego zgiełku, kłopotów z parkowaniem, etc. A jeśli wybierzesz tę miejscowość, to wybór mieszkania u Elisy jest oczywisty :) My zakochaliśmy się w tym miejscu i marzymy o powrocie. Elisa, dziękujemy Ci za gościnę. Katarzyna i Stanisław

Peaceful Tuscan Retreat

5 of 5
My husband, younger don and I stayed at Miria and Adriano's beautiful farmhouse during my son's October school holiday. The farmhouse is as beautiful as the pictures show. It is roomy, comfortable and individually decorated. Chianni is a super village with 3 really good restaurants within walking distance. There are also a couple of bars, ATMs and mini markets. The Saturday market offers an excellent choice of fruit and vegetables. The farmhouse is a great base to tour Tuscany. We visited Volterra, Lajtico, San Giminjano, Florence, Lucca, Livorno and Pisa. Miria and Adriano gave us a very warm welcome, were accommodating in topping up the wifi and took great care to ensure we made the most of our visit. It farmhouse is at the bottom of a very steep stones path which is pitch dark in the evening so flat shoes and a torch are required! We would have no hesitation in recommending the farmhouse and Chianni in general. Grazie tanto, speriamo di essere di nuovo. Judith, Alan and Jamie
