Every detail is attended to. Anna Maria was very responsive in connecting us with a chef for a few nights of cooked meals as requested and she also was able to accommodate our needs for a baby cot, high chair and gate as we had two families; one with very small children. In addition to the above, there were games and books in the house; anything we needed for cooking/entertaining, floats and toys at the pool- it was really perfect. We are Americans living in the UK and this was a special holiday where family joined us from the US. It was a beautiful setting & perfect environment for all our needs.

Airy and spacious with three bedrooms, it was perfect for us and our two little boys. It was the middle of August and hot but the air-conditioning coped perfectly... it was a treat to take the boys downstairs to the baker shop for fresh bread each morning. The post office is just next door, as well as a little neighbourhood bar and a small supermarket is just around the corner. We arrived by train and it was just a ten minute walk to the station, which is well connected to Pisa, Lucca, Florence and La Specia amongst others so made a great base for exploring. The beach was just a couple of minutes walk and we were close to many nice local restaurants and bars, a perfect location. The park nearby was a perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening with the children, playing on the rides, or hiring bicycles to ride around the park. Plenty to see and do for our young family. The apartment was well equipped, and Anne was the perfect host, meeting us upon arrival and departure, and offering tips and advice whenever required. Nothing was too much trouble, we had a lovely week.
