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.

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.

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.

Plenty to do in this fantastic location, close to all the places you could want to visit in Tuscany, apart from perhaps the beach, but this is a holiday location for people who want to explore the beautiful hill towns and beautiful cities of Pisa, Sienna and Florence. Accommodation was spacious and clean, kitchen and living room furniture basic but good enough for a two week stay, lovely terrace which we used morning, lunch and supper time looking over the Tuscan hills. Parking is secure and safe with electronic gates for ease of access. Pool was absolutely lovely just behind the apartment, shared by the five flats, set in an olive grove over looking the hills, never felt crowded, clean and well kept with lovely sun loungers and parasols for each apartment. I would recommend this to friends and family, but would give them directions before going as a bit tricky to find the first time.

On the negative side the road was a bit bumpy (short though) and there was no air condition. We didn't suffer from heat though, and really loved the place.

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!
