About Cristiana Ruschi
I have managed the family farm since 2007, which I have expanded with the "Al Palazzaccio" agrotourism from 2009. I live in the same framework where the agrotourism is located with my husband since 1996. Previously I have lived at Pisa, but I have always come to the farm that produces extra virgin olive oil, following my passion for a nature.
Cristiana Ruschi purchased this Farmhouse in 1680
Why Cristiana Ruschi chose Calci
The Ruschi family has lived between Pisa and Calci from the early 1700's. The Calci farm has always had olive oil products and today, for the first time, it is managed by a woman, Cristiana Ruschi, that from 2006 has opened the "Al Palazzaccio" agrotourism that is also home to the farm the owner's accommodation. In the farm, we have various animals that pasture in the olive grove: donkeys, sheep, chickens and 3 nice cats!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The farmstead where the agrotourism is located is called Palazzaccio, because the story tells that a bishop in the 1700 wanted this to be his summer residence expanding a pre-existing part of the 1400. The construction was not finished (nobody knows why) and afterwards, the construction was intended for colonial use, that is why the name originates from Palazzo (palace)! Located on the slopes of the valley that surrounds the town, the main characteristic, which is not prevalent in the other local villas, is that it is surrounded by large lawns and a beautiful panoramic and sunny location, without being too far from the village (10 minutes on foot). Outside, besides the swimming pool, there is a garden area with a gazebo, barbecue and a Ping-Pong table reserved for the guests. Since it is home to the farm as well, there are various animals: sheep, donkeys, chickens and cats (these last ones often cuddled by our guests). The fact that we live in the same framework has allowed, that through the years our familiar welcoming has been appreciated and we have many friends/guests that come back to spend their holidays here. The beautiful hills of the Pisan mountains, the sea is at only 30 minutes by car, the motorway, allows you to spend a complete holiday by visiting the various cities of art, go to the beautiful beaches of the natural park of Migliarino, as well as enjoying the complete relaxation of our farm.

We had a wonderful time in Calci!
Beautiful apartment, very nice people!
Très belle et charmante demeure située en pleine campagne.
La maison est occupée par les propriétaires (présents mais discrets) et composée de 3 appartements. La propriété est assez grande pour permettre de se trouver au calme mais il est également possible d'y rencontrer d'autres familles.
Le lieu est idéal pour les familles
Belle endroit bien situé
Site très au calme et très agréable.
Maison de charme avec intérieur aménagé avec goût et authenticité. Très spacieux
Très bien équipé en vaisselle et Electroménager.
Belle piscine de taille moyenne : petit bémol : des contraintes d'accès (plages horaires limité et notamment le midi, utilisation d'un bonnet de bain !)
Bon accueil des propriétaires avec pot d'accueil.
Très bien situé : à 20 minutes de Pise et de Lucca.
Merci pour le bilan positif de notre structure pour laquelle nous mettons tous nos efforts! Règlement de la piscine (bonnet de bain, etc etc ..) ne dépend pas de notre décision mais par la loi pour les piscines de la Région Toscane que prend définitivement sur la santé et la sécurité de ceux qui utilisent la piscine ... mais qu'il y donne la possibilité de modifier le règlement ... sauf pénalités coûteuses payants et la fermeture subséquente de la piscine !! Je souhaite que ce problème ne concerne pas trop d'avoir eu un bon séjour. Merci encore!
séjour super agréable
des hôtes remarquables
une maison propre
un environnement reposant et ressourçant
Near many restaurants that offer a typical Tuscan cuisine, it is also possible to book dinner or breakfast within the agrotourism. There are tennis courts and an indoor swimming pool. For those who love cycling, we recommend the ascent to Monte Serra, or paths in the Pisan plain (included with the apartment, a bike shelter). Not far from Versiglia where you can find the best discotheques at Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi. In every season, in the surroundings, festivals and cultural celebrations.
