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.

This property was GREAT. The apartment was comfortable, clean and well stocked for everything we needed. The views were wonderful and the ideas Pietro gave us for exploring the area were useful and all fun. The view from the rock in Micciano was wonderful. Pietro was available for all of our questions. It was a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the Tuscany country side.
If you want rest and relaxation, this is certainly the place for you. As previous reviewers have pointed out, it is quite a way from anywhere. The nearest village, Micciano (which by the way is not a mere 10 minutes walk away), has a smart restaurant and a shop which we never actually found to be open, but is pretty. Much better for shopping is Ponteginori which has everything you need, including petrol. It's about 12-15 minutes' drive away.
The house is wonderfully situated on the top of a hill with great views all round. It's a lovely old building surrounded by flower and herb beds, and a vineyard just below. Everything that we needed (there were 3 of us) was provided, including towels for the swimming pool, which was excellent.
We visited many of the towns and villages in the area and would particularly recommend Montecattini val di Cecini and Casale Marittimo. Not to mention Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena and Lucca!
Pietro and Eva were very welcoming as has been mentioned by other reviewers.
As our heading points out, a unique getaway.
Our family loved our time here. It. Was. In. The. Middle. Of. Nowhere. This is why we loved it. We spent time in this house for a few days on and around Easter Sunday. We went to the teeeny tiny church for Easter Sunday Mass. Our visit was amazing. This was the perfect base for us to visit Pisa, Lucca and Volterra. It's off the beaten path (as in these town folks only speak Italian and are still excited and courteous about foreigners). My kids enjoyed getting lost in the hills of the forest, we loved sitting at the picnic table, drinking wine and watching the sunset. I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon this little slice of heaven. Owners were quick, responsive and excellent hosts. I tell everyone I know who is visiting to make a trip here. Our world is vastly changing and becoming more and more global... this place is true, unadulterated Italy. Something to treasure, whille we can......
a really nice location for a quiet holiday. The house and the hosts are just super. The house itself is beautifully divided, all residents have private areas as well as common areas. Inside, everything is available for a nice stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms include a good mattress and nice bright rooms. There exist outdoors tables and benches so that you can have breakfast in the morning or the evening meal outside and enjoy the wonderful views of the countryside. The hosts help with advice and practical tips for Tours in the Tuscany, without being intrusive. Micciano is a good starting point for many tours (Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano). For the kids, the dog and the cat Cora Aldina were the highlight. Also the Pool has a good Quality and was for us and the Kids a real pleasure. So for us it was not the Last Visit to Tuscany, and to I Casali !
We had the most wonderful stay in the I CASALI , It was just beautiful! The quiet the views and not forgetting the hosts Eva and Pietro. The farmhouse is just wonderful. Very clean and fully equipped, and if you needed anything Eva was there with it! The location it just perfect for getting around, a car is needed. We went to Lucca , which is a must! Volterra , Livorno, San Gimignano, they have a market on a Thursday, which is lovely to visit, make an early start to get there as its gets really busy and parking can be a pain! Then have a leisurely walk round have a coffee or even better still a glass of local wine! and just watch the world go by! Siena , Monteriggioni are also lovely to explore. In all these places there are lovely stops to eat and taste the wonderful Italian wine. So Tuscany is a must! And staying in Pietro and Eva idyllic farmhouse just made it the perfect base. Thank you to you both.
hidden next to Micciano, in the middle of nature, you find this beautiful house with a lovely swimming pool and the most overwhelming views. (sunrise !!) The house has just everything you need, including self-made nature soaps , olive oil and wines and you can drink the tap water. And it is a great homebase to visit all the famous [places in the area. The description is not telling a single lie and communication and service from the owner could not be better. I can highly recommend it !
