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.

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.

Wonderful, couldn't ask for more!

5 of 5
The villa was lovely and spacious, very well equipped. What a view! The pool was out of this world, the kids loved it as did we. Giuseppe was so so helpful, booked us a restaurant, gave us travel advice - where to park for the main cities. It is perfectly positioned for Lucca, Pisa and Florence, nothing was too far. It was like having a friend you could call on -thank you so much we had a lovely holiday. The local restaurants were lovely and locals friendly. It was a peaceful haven, you do need to drive but just gorgeous we had a lovely lovely time. Thanks Giuseppe and Raoul xxxx

Thank you so much - it was a very pleasant stay! Located in an area that made seeing alot of Tuscany very easy. A little difficult to find at first - but exploring all around the area was fabulous.
