Overview

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.

POESIA BELVEDERE is also not far from places known seaside resorts (Marina di Pisa and Tirrenia) for those who love the sea, while mountain lovers can reach the famous town of Castelnuovo Garfagnana, and in less than an hour, climb up to 1,500 meters (Radici Pass).

It was beautiful, relaxing and we loved our hosts!

  • 5 of 5

What a special place to stay! The home is beautiful and accommodated three couples perfectly. We had so much fun hiking and swimming on and around the property! The nearby small towns were charming and it was also easy to drive to many other wonderful places like Lucca, Volterra and Mediterranean beach towns. Our hosts Antonio and Sylvia are two of the most lovely and welcoming people one can meet. We had a perfect vacation thanks to them and their wonderful villa.

Owner's Response: We have been very happy to meet you. For us it was like meeting with old friends and, when you left, you took away a piece of our heart. We can only wish to see you again in the future. A huge hug.

Charming quirky villa

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us how Sylvia can keep it so spotlessly clean with a lifetime of collectibles is a mystery to us. Antonio could answer all our questions or find the answer very quickly. We were very disappointed not to sample Sylvia’s breakfasts as advertised with the villa, as we used the fridge in the kitchen and were informed this would cause cross contamination we were surprised as I had checked the kitchen was for our use as we like to cater for ourselves for lunch and some dinners. The dishwasher was not in a safe condition to use, so washing up was not usually on our agenda on holiday as a dishwasher is a must on our tick list for villas. We never did manage to turn the oven on and were a little surprised at a 5 Euro charge to use the washing machine. There was a great bbq area which we made use of. We had two amazing meals cooked by Sylvia and beautifully served by Antonio where cross

contamination didn’t seem to be an issue!! The pool area was lovely and very clean and the views were amazing. A bonus is the billiard table which was well used by our men. If we revisit this area would consider staying again.

Owner's Response: You have been perfect guests and we remember you with great sympathy. We regret not being able to satisfy all your needs and I will try to explain. In the villa there are two kitchens, one inside and one on the back of the villa for our exclusive use. We have two types of guests: some want to prepare breakfast for themselves and others want breakfast free prepared by Silvia. In the first case the internal kitchen is available to guests. In the second case and for precise provisions of the law, we use the indoor kitchen where no one can have access for reasons of hygiene and for this we put at guests' disposal the fridge that is in the billiard room and when the guests order the dinner at Silvia, we use the kitchen and the fridge on the back of the villa where guests do not have access. The dishes and clothes can be washed by hand or with the washing machine. In the second case we warn guests that the use of the dishwasher is free but must be asked to Silvia, while the use of the washing machine is charged for the consumption of electricity, soap and softener. We hope to welcome you again as guests and i’m sorry for my little english.

Absolutely beautiful home on a magical Tuscan hillside. Sylvia and Antonio perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six loved our week at Posia Belvedere. The pool was warm and a great end of the day place to swim and relax. Extremely centrally located for day trips to Lucca, Florence, Alpi Apuane National Park, Cinque Terre, Pisa, San Miniato, and more. The charming nearby towns of Vicopisano and Buti had delicious reasonably priced restaurants. Sylvia made us a fantastic home cooked dinner the first night, which we ate out on the terrace beneath a star studded sky! Breakfast each morning was delicious. Sylvia and Antonio's love of the region and their warmth and sincere hospitality brought us endless good feelings. You can walk on footpaths for hours behind the house, and be in the midst of the villages and feel the true essence of Tuscany. Wildflowers abound, and the house has beautiful roses and garden. Can't say enough about the beautiful place in Italy. Hope to return one day.

Beautiful views, friendly owners!

  • 4 of 5

Sylvia and her husband were wonderful hosts! Sylvia cooked a 4-course meal for us our first night there. It was one of the best meals we had in Italy. Plus we sat on the patio and watched the full moon come up. Amazing!

The house is special and the grounds are beautiful. Lots of room to find a chair or couch to lounge and enjoy. Antonio made suggestions on our day trips and we loved everything he suggested!

Truly a magical stay...

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
