About the property

We live in a stone house, in Micciano near Volterra (Pisa). In our estate there are two apartments for rent, for lovers of the peace and beauty. La Puledrina, sleeps 4 + 1, is one bedroom with queen size beds, a living room with a sofa bed 200 cm (78 inches) wide, one kitchen, one bathroom with shower (including a hair drier). An extra single bed is available. Each room, including the bathroom, has at least one window. The kitchen is well equipped with regards to cookware and porcelain. It has induction cook top. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and very nicely furnished with pleasant colours and materials, according to the Tuscan tradition. Wood tables and benches for open-air meals and recreational time near the apartment. Deckchairs available. Wireless connection.

On the property you can find your favorite spot, overlooking the Tuscan hills sitting under a large holm oak or a juniper tree just gazing at the olive grove. You can walk along the trail to the spring of sulphurous water, passing by the pond where the small wild animals come to drink. If you are lucky you may see a turtle along the way.

We want to pay respect to the nature and its resources. Our olive oil production is in the process of obtaining organic farming certification, and regarding the tourist apartments we’re preparing for the Ecolabel approval.

A Real Tuscany retreat

  • 5 of 5

We took a late autumn trip to Tuscany, and our stay at the Puledrina apartment was truly magic. We enjoyed the beautiful natural scenery from our peaceful garden, with wonderful panoramic views over the Tuscan hilly landscape, as well as the cosy, well-equipped and comfortable apartment. Close by we enjoyed our visits to some well known towns like Volterra, and some pretty villages like Querceto and Bolgheri which became our favourites. The hosts were quite helpful and eager to tell us about places to see. Apart from the well known Tuscan tourist sites we felt we were lucky to get to know a more authentic, less touristic side of Tuscany. We would love to come back!

Wunderschöner Urlaub im ICasali

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im September für 10 Nächte mit unserer kleinen Tochter im I Casali bei Eva und Pietro.

Das Haus ist sehr schön auf einem Berg gelegen. Es hat 3 Wohnungen, wovon 2 vermietet werden, die andere wird durch den Eigentümer benutzt. Diese waren bei uns nur am Wochenende da. Somit hatten wir den Rest der Zeit das ganze Anwesen für uns alleine.

Das Anwesen ist ruhig gelegen. Optimal zum Ausspannen. Es gibt einen eigenen Pool der jeden Morgen gereinigt und abends wieder abgedeckt wird. Alles ist sehr gepflegt!

Die Wohnungen sind gut ausgestattet, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Alles ist sauber. Für unsere Kleine haben uns Pietro und Eva ohne Nachfrage ein Kinderbett (Reisebett) zur Verfügung gestellt.

Eva und Pietro sind sehr nette Gastgeber. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen.

Ein Auto ist zwingend notwendig, für Ausflüge oder auch zum Einkaufen. Zu Fuß kann man nur spazieren gehen ;-)

Wer Ruhe und Erholung sucht ist hier genau richtig.

Wir empfehlen I Casali ganz klar weiter!!

A wonderful stay in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five nights at this beautiful farmhouse, ideally situated in the rolling hills of the Pisa region. On top of upgrading us to the larger apartment, Pietro was a most accomodating and very attentive host. The wine and olive oil from his estate were much appreciated. Everything was perfect. Altough we did not use it much because it was later in the season, the pool is beautiful and would be delightful in the heat of summer. The place is so quiet, yet easily accessible and near some major tourist attractions (Volterra, San Gimignano, the Chianti Region, Sienna). The beauty of the place is almost surreal. I would recommand it to anyone visiting the region.

Satisfactory for our 2 week holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately had to find our own way in as emails went into cyber space!

Lower apartment quite dark, but probably a blessing on hot days (which we sadly did not have). Bed very comfortable but bedroom lacking enough storage space.

We really enjoyed our stay and had lots of days out to very interesting places. Good central location and lovely views from the garden grounds.

Only tested the pool once but it was always clean and very well maintained.

The weather broke into storms 2 days after we arrived so we had 4-5 days of our 2 week stay rather wet, but still fun.

Pietra and Eva, the owners, are the most delightful couple and extremely helpful.

We did not eat out in the evening, prefering to cook for ourselves, mainly because of our reluctance to drive in the dark on a very twisty road.

I would be happy to recommend to other people. We are 2 'oldies' but our grandchildren would have loved the space, freedom and the pool.

Authentic Tuscany with Breathtaking View.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of being able to stay in Authentic Tuscan Farmhouse, it has everything I was looking for. Pietro and Eva are amazing hosts. Everything was provided: Clean bath towels, beach towels, dishes, sheets, everything you need. Pool is nice and refreshing. It feels so nice to come back and relax near the pool after day of exploring the area. Farmhouse is very stylish and rustic at same time with modern touch. The cottage located on amazing property in real not spoiled tuscany. There are very nice small villages around there to do sight seeing and wine tasting. No need to have any supermarket around because local stores provide better quality of produce from local places. Absolute pleasure to deal with, thanks again to Eva and Pietro.
