We live in a stone house built in the 1850s, in Micciano near Volterra (Pisa). In our estate there are two apartments for rent, for lovers of the peace and beauty.
• Heart of Tuscany
• Heated swimming pool
• On the border of a natural reserve
• Wifi, internet connection
• Mountain bikes
• Estate olive oil, certified organic
• Near beaches and Tuscan medieval towns
Volterra, San Gemignano, Firenze, Lucca and Pisa. We are located next to a natural reserve of 5.000 hectares (12.500 Acres).
On the property you can find your favourite 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.

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.
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.
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.
This home is tucked in the countryside away from it all. Very beautiful setting, wonderful hosts and an authentic Tuscan farmhouse.
The property is a bit of a drive from any substantial town or village so pick up groceries before hand but once you are organized just sit back and relax.
The drive to all the sights is pleasant and scenic and will take you any where from 35 minutes (Volterra) to 1hr 15 minutes (San Gimignano) and approximately an hour to the seaside. Pietro and Eva are friendly and caring and want to make sure you are having a wonderful stay.
Beautiful area with distant views of countryside. Comfortable lodging and a great place for taking day trips into the surrounding areas including the nearby seashore. Quiet and peaceful place to relax. PIetro and Eva are gracious hosts always available to ensure their guests are attended well. This a place we would return to.
A great place to retreat into the Tuscan hill. Clean, spacious, and well-maintained. Owners very helpful and friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a low-key retreat, where nature can be enjoyed along with the world of Tuscan wine!
