About Jonathon Hunter

I am an Australian who has lived here in Tuscany for over 18 years and come from a background of Hotels and Resorts and work as a Tour Guide and holiday manager. Massimo Lenzi is my best friend and colleague making up the Tuscan side of Tuscany Kangaroos. He was born in the village and is a wealth of local knowledge - he also guides, with a lot of passion, people around the village of Vicopisano. He is a registered tour guide for the vast Province of Pisa and knows many of the secret and less tourist visited places. We both love to meet and entertain new people to the Village. It is still one of Tuscany’s best kept secrets. You can find comments about us by some of our guests on Trip advisor check out Lenzis in Vicopisano. We also have a B & B.

Jonathon Hunter purchased this house in 2011

Why Jonathon Hunter chose Vicopisano

We have a B & B and wanted to be able to offer a more historical form of housing . When this unique Tower House with such an enormous garden right underneath the famous castle and Tower built by Fillipo Brunelleschi became available we had to have it.

This quiet Village is so close to Pisa , Florence, Lucca , the Coast and other Tuscan Treasures it is an ideal place to stay if you want to drive around and see most of Tuscany.

A Trip Back in Time, Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property and we're glad we came back! The description of the property on the site is accurate. The apartment was very well appointed and was comfortable. Crazy to think of the history of not only the apartment, but the surroundings as well. Our host, John, was extremely helpful. He met us at the square, showed us where to park, showed us the apartment, explained how to get around and what to do, and even went so far as to let us know about a local festival happening in the town and he also translated to the menu for us by hand! Very good customer service!

We would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to get a real taste of the true Toscana!

Charmante maison médiévale - Au coeur d'un village typique et calme

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié notre séjour à Vicopisano, charmant village médiéval, non loin de Pise et de la mer.

La toscane florentine n'est pas loin non plus.

Le propriétaire nous a réservé un accueil sympatique (visite de la maison, conseils de visites, l'essentiel pour un premier repas offert).
