About the Owner

We are a family with one 4 year old and one teenager. We love the relaxation of the area, the closeness to beaches and medieval towns and all the tourist sights of Tuscany but with the quiteness of rural life.

Fabulous apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks here and it was the best family holiday we have had. The apartment was clean, comfortable and spacious with everything we needed. It was great to be able to barbecue and sit on the balcony during the evenings. The other residents were friendly and helpful. The location is fabulous and it is easy to get to all the main attractions of Tuscany and beyond. We had lovely lazy days by the pool or on the beach as well as great days in the many beautiful towns and villages (easy to get to Pisa, Florence and Siena). Roland was very helpful during the booking process and offered loads of advice on where to visit and on the many local restaurants...and even on where to buy the best priced local wine. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return.
