Beautiful, well-equipped accommodation in stunning location.
The owners were very welcoming and the apartment beautifully furnished. Covered patio and outside seating in the garden with wide views of the countryside and hill villages perfect to enjoy in all seasons. We loved exploring all the little hill villages nearby, a welcome change of pace after a busy week in Florence.
We stayed in this fabulous apartment for 11 days in April 2017.
It is situated only 40 minutes drive from Pisa airport and easy to find with parking on site. We rented the two bedroom ground floor apartment in this three storey building in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The owners, Laura and Paolo, live on the top floor and are usually around should you need them. They also rent out the second floor apartment.
Our apartment was very spacious, very clean and fresh looking. The kitchen was very well equipped and included cooker, very large fridge/freezer, microwave and coffee maker. We hardly used any of these facilities except for making toast and cups of tea and a suggested welcome addition for us British clients would be an electric toaster and an electric kettle.
There were plenty of towels supplied and also some toiletries. Lots of hot water at a good pressure was always available. The bathroom was plenty large enough with a good sized shower.
There is central heating throughout which if required would incur an extra charge for the gas used. We just wanted a little heating in the living area to take off the chill and Paulo kindly supplied some logs and firelighters so we had a lovely open fire on several evenings.
The rear of the property has an almost 180 degree view over the stunning countryside which can be viewed from either of the two French doors with balconies in the living room and one bedroom and from the extensive outdoor space.
This apartment has a large covered terrace equipped with table and chairs and there are more chairs on the upper and lower lawned areas. The pool was not in use whilst we were there.
The property is not isolated but whilst we were there we experienced very little traffic noise. There are a few neighbours, which do not intrude on your privacy, but you can expect to hear dogs barking and cockerels crowing, etc. Also there may be noise from people renting the second floor apartment above e.g. chairs scraping and footsteps on the tiled floors....
Laura and Paolo are delightful and generous hosts and whilst they are not fluent in English (as we are not in Italian), we managed to communicate sufficiently. They made us feel very welcome and kindly gave us gifts of homemade jam and home grown vegetables.

Paradise in Tuscany
If you want to have paradise holiday, rent this apartment in La Pieve. We stayed there with our 2 kids and enjoyed every part of it. Unforgettable view, spacious rooms with great decor, perfect pool, meals on the terasse, 2 balconies, kitchen with all equipment, hospitable hosts who gave us home made olive oil and apricots from their garden. We could park our car beside the house and travelled all around Tuscany. Thermal bath with swimming pool 5 min by car in Caciana Terme, small shops including butchers in Chianni 5 min, large supermarket Conad in Capannina 15 min, Seaside is about 50min away (beach Vada), picturesque town S. Gimigiano cca 50 min, Livorno with superb aquarium for kids 45 min, Chianti region 90 min by car. There is also a bus stup in front of the house. We can highly reccomend this apartment! Enjoy you holiday.
Grazie della belle bella cose scritte , ma è cosi il luogo è davvero bello.
We stayed in the ground floor appartment for one week and had a perfect time! The view is magnificent and Laura and Paolo are very kind. Our children really loved the garden with the soccer field.
we enjoyed a wonderful holiday in the beautiful house of laura and paolo. The house fulfilled all our expectations: spacious, clean and everything needed for a great vacation. Laura and Paolo are very nice and helpful people.
And the view from the terrace alone was worth the long trip. The beautiful cities of Lucca, Siena, Pisa, Florence; they are all easily accessible from Chianni. I would recommend anyone to spend their holidays here.
Tolle Gegend und eine sauber Wohnung! *** Sehr empfehlenswert! ***
Als erstes ein großes Dankeschön an Laura und Paolo, dass sie uns einen so tollen und entspannten Urlaub beschert haben.
Für uns war es ein sehr schöner Urlaub. Wir wohnten in der unteren Wohnung mit direktem Zugang zum Grundstück. Das Haus ist praktisch eingerichtet und sehr sauber. In der Küche ist alles was man braucht vorhanden. Die Betten sind in Ordnung. An sich ist die Gegend sehr ruhig und schön, vor allem die tolle Aussicht auf die Hügellandschaft und die Berge im Hintergrund. Die Ortsstraße ist relativ wenig befahren. Allerdings wird dort teils sehr schnell gefahren.
Die Anlage ist sehr weitläufig und sehr schön gestaltet und auch sehr sauber. Jeden Abend hat Paolo viel Zeit in die Pflege investiert. Der Pool war zu jeder Zeit sauber und lud immer wieder für erfrischende Momente ein.
Den Kindern und auch uns hat es super gefallen. Auch der Fußballplatz war ständig in Gebrauch von den Enkeln von Laura und Paolo und unseren Kindern.
In ca. 10 Minuten Entfernung ist ein Conad und in ca. 15 Minuten ein Lidl. In Chianni selbst (3-4 Autominuten) gibt es auch kleine Lädchen.
Zum Meer sind es 45 bis 60 Minuten, je nach dem, wohin man will. Die Strände sind meist privat bewirtschaftet. Dazwischen gibt es immer wieder kostenfreie Stellen, wo man seine eigene Decke ausbreiten kann.
Unser Fazit: Wer Ruhe sucht und gern Auto fährt, wenn er mehr sehen will, ist hier genau richtig. Wir können die Ferienwohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Weiter so!!!
Viviamo in un posto stupendo ,dove la natura e l 'arte non smettonono mai di incontrarsi.
