About the property

On The Hills of Pisa, Surrounded By The Poetry Of Nature, Ancient Watchtower,

POESIA BELVEDERE

Ancient watchtower, dating back to the fifteenth century, then transformed into a farmhouse by the barons Silvatici, is located on the slopes of the Monti Pisani 3 km from the center of the beautiful medieval town of Vicopisano. It is said that this house Leonardo da Vinci, an admirer of Brunelleschi, has designed the impregnable fortress of Vicopisano in a framework that is exhibited in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, a copy of which is visible in our suite.

POESIA BELVEDERE is located at a height of 180 m.s.l.m. and it surrounded by olive groves and woods (more than 170,000 square meters). The particular location where is protects it from harsh winters or very hot summers and is an ideal starting point for lovers of hiking and mountain biking. For horse lovers can participate in organized lovely horse riding in a nearby riding.

Not far from the confines of our property is only 10 'walk brings you to the beautiful church of San Jacopo, set in the valley of the same name. It was built in the Lombard period (VIII century) and was originally dedicated to St. Mamiliano, as yet the inscription inscribed on the main portal.

Also for walkers in 40 'you can rise to over 500 meters above sea level The visiting Verruca Fortress located on its namesake mountain and overlooks and dominates the Pisan plain and the river Arno. Its strategic location has always made a valuable support for the safety of Pisa, in the centuries engaged in bloody struggles against the Florentines: the rock allowed a visual triangulation between Pisa and the castle of Vicopisano, in turn connected with the castle of Buti and all Lungomonte Pisa.

POESIA BELVEDERE is located 14 'from the railway station of Pontedera, 25' from the airport and train station 23Km Pisa and the Leaning Tower, 23 km from Lucca, 65 km from Florence, 90 km from Siena, 45 km from Volterra, 30 km from Montecatini Terme, 50 km from San Gimignano, 45 'from Forte dei Marmi, 35' from the beautiful cliffs of Livorno and 25 km from the beautiful beach of Marina di Vecchiano.

POESIA BELVEDERE being located in the south east of Monti Pisani and being at a height of 180 meters above sea level is a convenient starting point to an area, it probably already inhabited in Etruscan times, through paths that wind among oaks, chestnut trees and pine trees and crossing towns rich in history, art and culture. You can choose more difficult routes and suggestive or simpler and less tiring. The pool of 3x12 meters covered and uncovered, large terraces on which to sunbathe, the olive grove and the shadow of the forest, the calm, the silence and peace around the house surround this place, make it unique and give it poetically one unforgettable charm. Our host, simple and familiar, will make your stay exciting, pleasant and relaxing more than you can imagine for the health of your body and your spirit.

Stunning

Everything at this property was beautiful from the owners to the way they took care of us to the property and surrounding area. I'd highly recommend this place and treat yourselves to their phenomenal home cooked dinner.

Vacation of our dreams!!!

  • 5 of 5

We (three couples from North America) planned our trip to Tuscany to experience the culture, the cuisine, the beauty of nature and have a little rest. We are so lucky that by chance and by internet we have selected home of Silvia and Antonio for two weeks, because there home is very unique comfortable museum by itself and as far as cuisine is concerned is for sure the best in all Tuscany - never ever we have any dinner even remotely as good as Sylvia's. Sylvia and Antonio are amazingly friendly, warm and generous people. They are making us feel as part of the family from day one. Attention to details, willingness to overcome all cultural differences (Russians with american taste), guidance - all that made our stay the vacation of our dreams!!! Dear Sylvia and Antonio, we miss you and hope we come back. Sofia, Natalia, Lena and husbands

Comfortable, characterful accommodation in beautiful setting with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

This B&B was a real find! We were rather apprehensive after realising we would have to approach the house each time by driving up a winding narrow road, but we soon got used to this and it wasn't a problem; it was well worth it for the quiet location and beautiful views. There was also often a nice breeze on the hill when sitting by the pool, despite the very hot weather. The children (13 and 10) loved having the pool to themselves and were enchanted when Antonio lit it up with floating lanterns one night so they could have an evening swim under the stars! The glass cover over the pool was also great because the UV rays can't penetrate it which meant we could dispense with the suncream.

Sylvia and Antonio couldn't have been more helpful, kind and considerate hosts. They went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed and supplied railway timetables for when we took a day trip to Florence, advised us on local restaurants and recommended lots of other places to go. We had a beautiful evening meal cooked by Sylvia one night, which was a real highlight - delicious food and wine, and the kids, who are big olive fans, thought the homegrown olives, prepared by Sylvia, were among the best they've ever tasted! They also loved the breakfasts which featured cake and biscuits - not like at home! We all looked forward to the lovely fresh fruit each morning and as much coffee as you could drink.

Vicopisano itself is a really picturesque little town, and is within very easy reach of Pisa (less than half an hour), Lucca and Volterra and many other places. We would also recommend a little tour of the local Agriturismo place to find out all about olive production and see the other fruit they grow and wines they produce. We loved that.

All in all, a fantastic holiday. We wish we were back there now!

Gorgeous home with gorgeous people!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Silvia and Antonio for our wonderful stay to wrap up our Tuscany adventure. The home is amazing! The views of the surrounding countryside are beautiful! The house is very comfortable and we felt rested and spoilt as we left. The pool is a great way to relax after exploring the area. We were also treated to Silvia's amazing cooking (dinner can be arranged for additional cost and breakfast is included). Silvia and Antonio went out of their way to make our stay as perfect as possible.

Outstanding visit in Vicopaisano!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying with Antonio and Sylvia for one night in mid-October 2016. We arrived in late afternoon, had gotten lost getting there. Antonio kindly met us in the town square and we followed him up the hill to his lovely home. There we met Sylvia, and toured their fantastic house and property. Sylvia served drinks and snacks as the sun began to set over the valley below. We had arranged for dinner there as well, and had the most wonderful evening trading stories with Antonio and Sylvia and learning about the house and the surrounding area. It is easy to access Pisa and Lucca from this location. I wish we had time to spend more days there, it was so much fun. Thank you both for opening your home to us!

Fantastic in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Poesia Belvedere is a truly special place! We stayed at the villa for a week with our kids aged 5, 7 and 9. It is perched on a hill with a breathtaking view over the valley and within easy reach of Pisa, Florence and several other places. The kids had an amazing time in the large swimming pool and there are sun loungers everywhere to soak up the sun. Surprisingly, it wasn't uncomfortably hot as there was always a breeze in the air, even though we stayed there in August. The house is very spacious and there was more than enough room for us all. What made our visit even more special was Silvia and Antonio. They were such gracious hosts, accommodating our every need. The food that Silvia prepared was delicious home cooked meals, and we will never forget how dish upon dish would arrive at the table and each dish more delicious than the one before. We thought the meals were also good value for money in comparison to a restaurant, and sometimes you just want to relax and not have to go out for dinner. Dinner-time was also really romantic with candles everywhere, looking out over the twinkling lights. Antonio gave us many tips on where to go in the area and was helpful with printing out train timetables and so forth.

Thank you, Antonio and Silvia, for making our holiday memorable and for your warm hospitality. We have the delicious olive oil we bought from your daughter to remind us of our holiday. The kids and we will never forget the last evening's surprise! We hope to see you again in the future!
