Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Cascina - B&B Casa Formica

B&B Casa Formica 3 apartments near Pisa and Lucca

B&B Casa Formica is located just 10 minutes from Pisa and 20 minutes from Lucca. It is designed inside an old farmhouse built in the first half of '800, fully restored according to the rustic Tuscan style.

Its proximity to the major points of interest and major roads, and the fact that it is 'far' from the chaos of the city, makes it unique and attractive to those who are also looking for peacefulness and relaxation. Ideal for families, for a pleasant stay with children or just want to go cycling. “Casa Formica” is a bit far from the traditional hotel structure that is often too sterile with the customer. We know that we can guarantee the same services and comfort level.

Of particular interest is the garden (over 2500 sqm ) fully equipped with tables, chairs and umbrellas to allow our guests to enjoy their breakfast outdoors (in fine weather), relax after a day of 'hard work' or reading a book under one of the big mulberry trees that dominate the entire vegetation.

Discount for stay more than 7 days

Why Iacopo chose Pisa

“Casa Formica” is a brainchild of Iacopo and his mother Cristina, which have been growing the desire to keep in close contact with guests. They decided to transform their home into a warm, discreet and welcoming place. “Casa Formica” is a bit far from the traditional hotel structure that is often too sterile with the customer. We know that we can guarantee the same services and comfort level.

Lovely house and very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Mary for a week in September 2015. The house is next door to the house the owner lives in, which he uses for B&B. There is also a third house which is either rented or used for B&B. They all share a common drive in a gated garden. There is plenty of space.

The house is well equipped and had what we needed. It is very nicely converted from something like an old barn. It is located just outside Pisa in a rural location and you need a car. The bus service to Pisa is limited. There is a train station in the next small town, Navacchio, which we used to travel to Florence, which worked well.

The owner provided a lot of information to help us on parking in Pisa, Lucca etc. and options for getting to other towns. He also has some maps and supermarket, restaurant information.

An Idyllic Place

  • 5 of 5

Our four-night stay at this picturesque apartment was one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany. The apartment is spacious, with a large, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, a comfortable living area with TV and other entertainment facilities (which we did not have time to use), a large table which I co-opted for my computer but could serve as a dining table for six comfortably, and a mezzanine and very large bedroom upstairs. Decorated with a strong Tuscan flavor, the apartment is just as pretty as the VRBO photos suggest. The property is located on the fringe of the town of Cascina, which itself is on the edge of Pisa. It backs onto large open farm fields; be prepared to wake up to the insistent calls of roosters - a nice change from an alarm clock.

Iacopo was our principal contact and was anxious to ensure our comfort and satisfaction. His English is adequate, and he is careful to make sure he comprehends any conversation. His mother and father are equally engaging people. We prepared most of our breakfasts, but, after reading the reviews of his mother 's formidable breakfasts, we arranged to have her prepare breakfast for us on our final morning. We enjoyed a full continental breakfast, replete with fresh local products, including local pastries and some home-made specialties; we didn't eat again until dinner.

Before we left, we took a number of photos of the apartment, the home and the garden, to make sure we always have something to remind us of our visit to this beautiful place.

La vita è bella a Casa Formica!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé presque tout le mois d'août 2013 dans l’Appartment Mary de la Casa Formica. Nous nous y sommes sentis très bien. L’appartement est conforme à la description et aux photos. Il s’agit d’un grand appartement sur deux niveaux, bien aménagé et décoré, confortable, propre et très bien entretenu. Il donne accès à un beau jardin d’arbres fruitiers avec vue sur les oliviers. Situé à environ 4 km des principaux axes routiers, il est facile de se déplacer en voiture pour visiter diverses régions de la Toscane. Iacopo et sa mère Cristina sont des hôtes fantastiques. Ils sont extrêmement sympathiques, disponibles, attentionnés. Ils nous ont choyés en aliments de leur potager, fait découvrir leur huile d’olive et leur vin préféré. Ils sont aux petits soins, généreux de leur temps et de leurs conseils, font tout pour rendre leurs hôtes heureux. Nous conservons d’excellents souvenirs des moments passés à la Casa Formica. Soyez assuré que la vie y est vraiment belle!!! La dolce vita, c'est là!

Ein wunderschöner Urlaub in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Anfang September diesen Jahres konnten wir zwei wunderschöne Urlaubswochen in dem Ferienhaus der Familie Formica

verbringen.

in dem sehr geräumigen und stilvoll eingerichteten Haus ist alles vorhanden, was man zum Wohlfühlen braucht und der große Garten

lädt zum Verweilen ein.

Durch die Lage außerhalb der Stadt Pisa kann man die Ruhe genießen und ist doch mit dem Auto oder Fahrrad in wenigen Minuten im

Zentrum von Pisa. Von hier aus konnten wir Ausflüge in die wunderschöne Toskana und die wunderbaren Städte Florenz und

Siena unternehmen.

Auch die Stunden an den Stränden von Pisa und Livorno haben wir sehr genossen.

Die Gastgeber sind freundliche und nette Leute, die einem den Aufenthalt durch Ratschläge und Aufmerksamkeiten angenehm

gestalten.

Insgesamt hat uns der Aufenthalt sehr gut gefallen und wir waren mit Sicherheit nicht zum letzten Mal in der Casa Formica.

Dieses Feriendomizil kann man ohne Bedenken weiterempfehlen.

Sehr geschmackvoll, komplett eingerichtete Wohnung(eher Hauscharakter)!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu zweit und haben die sehr großzügige Wohnung und die sehr netten Vermieter sehr genossen!

Von der Wohnung aus waren wir mit dem Mietwagen(ohne Auto geht nichts!) in Pisa, Volterra und Lucca. Auch Marina di Pisa lohnt; Viareggio eher nicht! Bis zum Flughafen Pisa braucht man nur 20 Minuten.

Dank des Vermieters wußten wir zentrumsnah und kostenlos zu parken!

Abends haben wir die Wohnung genossen. Ein erholsamer Urlaub liegt hinter aus.
