There is a bus ticket office, staffed during the day, on the walk to bus stop. There is a very nice Co-op grocery store across the street and the property is on the edge of a very nice pedestrian area with old, narrow streets, restaurants and shops. Most restaurants have FREE wifi. The pedestrian area was very lively until about midnight so it can be a bit noisy. I loved walking the narrow streets and just watching people living life. The apartment is nicely decorated and quirky in a nice way. `The kitchen is well equipped, the bedroom is large and the sleeper sofa was comfortable for me. I really appreciated the clothes hanging line right outside the window. The owners were extremely helpful, even meeting our train at about 11PM. We had a minor glitch and the owner was able to come in just a few minutes. We elected to pay the owner for a ride to Pisa airport on our last day since our flight was somewhat early and we didn't want to risk missing a train connection. A wifi connection would have been very helpful but the owner is planning to have that installed. I think buying a European SIM card for your mobile phone would be helpful too. I would definitely return here on another visit to Tuscany.

We had a brilliant time - the views were fabulous, the property was clean, quiet, authentic and we didn't want to leave! Also a fab location for visiting popular towns in Tuscany ... Would highly recommend!

It is clean and well furnished, and has a pretty central courtyard where it is nice to sit and have breakfast before the day's hectic sightseeing. The beds are comfortable, and there is a good ceiling fan in the master bedroom to keep you cool at night in the hot summer months. The second bedroom leads up to an optional mezzanine level where there are two matresses for more guests if necessary. The kitchen is well equipped, although we only used it for breakfast as we spent most of the day eating out at the lovely local Italian restaurants nearby. Rosie was quick to respond to all my correspondence and requests, and I would recommend this apartment to future travellers who visit this beautiful, romantic city!
