Delightful and Charming Farmhouse Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment! Quiet, rural setting. The hosts are absolutely delightful! On our arrival they provided us a bottle of red wine from their own vineyard and one evening cooked us a delicious Tuscan meal which we enjoyed al fresco on the balcony outside our door. Short drives to many picturesque hilltop villages as well as to Pisa, Volterra, and San Gimignano.

Lovely, rural many faceted farm with delightful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting in the midst of "the real rural Tuscany". Fruit trees, apricot, apple, pears, cherries, as well as grapes and olives (for their own olive oil and wine; we found a bottle of each in our apt. on arrival). Franco and Mara were lovely hosts. The spot was an oasis after visiting nearby walled cities. Take a book down to the lounges by the pool, along with local wine and life is good! Little walled town of Morrona ( not on any map we had) was our morning uphill walk for coffee and pastry and maybe a few groceries. Great way to begin each day.

Superb Tuscan setting

  • 5 of 5

It was everything a Tuscan holiday was meant to be. The weather just got better & better, the setting was superb & the food, well, what can you say about Italian food that hasn't already been said. As for the accommodation, don't expect five star hotel rooms etc, this is Tuscan farmhouse accommodation! Our one bed apartment had everything you could want, the pool is lovely & then you have Franco & Mara. No one could have looked after us better. On arrival, lunch was bruschetta & cold meats, apricots & peaches freshly picked every other day, & every Friday Mara & Franco cook for the whole house. BBQ'd ribs, fresh pasta, salad etc, washed down with their own wine. All free gratis. Their hospitality is wonderful & I would urge anyone visiting Tuscany to seriously consider staying here first. This trip has left a lasting impression on both of us, not only the area, but because of Franco & Mara. Ciao. Stewart & Kay (Swansea)

Amazing relaxing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing holiday ever. Our apartment was stunning relaxing and the welcome was so lovely. The fridge was filled with Tuscan homemade delights and the fruit that we were given daily was so thoughtful. We are just about to book a week next August.

Fantastic, relaxing rental

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. The description was accurate and the facilities were good. The pool was great and there was plenty of space to lounge around the pool. The property was clean and well maintained. The balcony/terrace was shaded (much needed in August) and the bedroom was spacious. I would thoroughly recommend this rental. One of the reasons for liking this rental was the friendliness and welcome of the owners; fresh pears and tomatoes were delivered to our apartment; the owner's wife prepared typical Tuscan dishes for our first night at the rental and on the last night, all the renters from the 4 apartments were invited to share a wonderful, home-cooked Tuscan meal in the garden!! Fantastic!!

Travel:

Cheap flights are available from/to Pisa Airport, then hire a car or take the local bus to Terricciola. Pisa airport is the most convenient.

From Pisa Airport (30 min) take the S.G.C. FI-PI-LI direction Florence, exit at “Pontedera-Ponsacco”, go toward Terricciola and then to Morrona.

Property Location:

Podere Costantino is located 0.7 km far from Morrona and 2 km far from Terricciola, a villages that are home of some world-known vineyards. Here you will find restaurants, stores, post office, drugstore, tennis courts, medical assistance and more. A only few kilometres you can find horse riding, treatment aesthetic, spa and swimming pool with thermal water.

Distances:

Once arrived, the peaceful surroundings and the typical scenography Tuscan landscape makes hard to tear yourself away. Anyway the property is close to the major Italian's attractions including Florence (50 km), Pisa (30 km), Volterra (25 km), San Gimignano (35 km), Lucca (45 km) and Siena (50 km).

Coast/Beach:

You can reach the beaches of the Tuscan coast in 30-50 min by car (Vada, Cecina, Castiglioncello and Bibbona). There are fantastic places to visit along this beautiful coastline. In Vada you can find the white beach, no more than 50 min driving. The more rocky beaches, ideal for snorkelling, are in Castiglioncello, just south of Livorno, 40 min far.
