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. There are some excellent bridle paths and footpaths surrounding Palaia, details of which are available from the Palaia tourist information centres.

Problem was, we were constantly worried that someone breaks any of their irreplacable artifacts which are on display in the house. The salt water pool is nice but there is no outdoor shower (despite what the description says). The property is quite autarc, which is cool, but once in a while the toilets had no water. But then I was introduced to the technical room and we managed. The electric wiring is quite Italian, my son got an electric shock on a bare wire when looking for a light switch in the darkness outside. Overall great, but not recommended with children.

Das Haus ist bestens ausgestattet und mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Es fehlte wirklich an nichts. Auch das Grundstück war sehr gepflegt. Durch die Bäume ließ es sich selbst in der Mittagshitze gut aushalten. Am besten aber war der Pool selbst. Wir haben die Erfrischung immer sehr genossen. Das Wasser konnte man durch einen kleinen Roboter selbst bei Bedarf reinigen lassen. Alles in allem ließ Il Grillo keine Wünsche offen. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war sehr angenehm. Bei Fragen war er immer erreichbar, aber darüber hinaus waren wir in unserer Privatsphäre nicht gestört. Wir freuen uns schon darauf, hierher zurückzukehren.

The tennants before us had made a mess, and this wasn't cleaned properly and there was no one to welcome us. It tooks us several hours of additional cleaning. So the first impression was not good. Next day we met the owner, he apologised for the mess (I would have expected a bottle wine or something for this mess) and everything that needed to be fixed was fixed the next day. From that moment on, it was very good; great house, great view, great pool, nothing to complain and we had a super vacation.
