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.

Thanks to them, we felt very relaxed knowing in case of any issue, we would not be left alone. We definitely want to go again and we highly recommend it for a family holiday!

Everything you could possibly need for a truly luxurious stay is in situ. The views from every aspect of the garden and house are magnificent. The pool is perfect, and although not huge was still perfect for family swimming, and the views whilst sunbathing are exquisite. We have stayed at two of Genka's properties now, and he and his team are consistently in discrete attendance to make sure the pool is clean,the gardens kept, and that our stay is as relaxing or exciting as we wish - he is excellently informed about the attractions of the whole area. Highly recommended.
