Overview

About the property

appartament with two bedrooms in the center of Pisa

An architect designed, beautifully restored and tastefully decorated 15th century stone built wharf building overlooking the majestic Arno River. Located on the second floor in the heart of the ancient historical centre of Pisa.

This magnificent 120m2 apartment has original wooden beams, terracotta tiled flooring ( cool in the summer and cosy in the winter) and furnished to a very high and funky standard. The ceilings are approximately 4 metres high and this lends a real elegance and grandeur to the space. The dining room and kitchen overlook the river and the famous Ponte di Mezzo where the annual Giocco del Ponte takes place each June during the Pisa festival as well as the huge firework display which takes place on the day of San Ranieri, the 3rd Saturday in June. The lounge is in the middle of the apartment and has a wonderful fireplace and parquet flooring. At the back of the apartment are the two bedrooms each with a view into the historical centre of the city. One bedroom is a double and the other has two single beds. The bathroom is great, like a 5 star hotel.

Just a few steps from the apartment are a wealth of bars, restaurants, shops and art galleries. The world famous Leaning Tower is just a 10 minute walk away. Being so central, the apartment is perfectly located for the train station and for a quick 15 minute taxi ride to the airport.

Also: should you be interested, I can organise some great sporting activities for you ( I am a keen mountaineer, sailer and surfer ) ; eg - kayak, rafting, catamaran, wind surf and skiing. Just let me know. Sandro

Wonderful Flat - Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Alessandro's apartment. I kept saying "I could live here!" It was fantastic and truly felt like we were guests in someone's home. The bedrooms were quiet, the living area lovely and the kitchen and bathroom more than adequate. The location was really ideal. 10 minutes from the tower and 10 from the station. Sunset on the river was truly spectacular. Wonderful.

Elegant, spacious, well located and distinctive apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days in Pisa, using it as a base to explore Lucca, Florence and San Gimingnano. The apartment had everything we needed to make our stay work for us and our two year old. Highly recommend it. We had no worries and knew what to do if we did, Alessandro was always reachable.

Very attractive apartment in an historical building close to the centre of Pisa.

  • 5 of 5

We spent four very enjoyable days in Pisa and close by. Apartment was clean and generally well kept. The front (kitchen and sitting/eating area) looks onto the Arno and across to the university, the back (i.e. the bedrooms) is very quiet. It's an ancient tower house - one of a number in Pisa - and is interestingly quirky as a result. Alessandro was fast to respond, and flexible about arrival/departure, and welcomed us as planned. Everywhere is Pisa is in walking distance, and we found some excellent and reasonably priced restaurants. It's handy for the station (10 mins brisk walk) and the airport (10 mins by taxi), and we enjoyed outings to Lucca, and to Livorno (unexpectedly attractive and with a great indoor market). Would happily stay again.
