Apartment Cairoli - 2 Bedroom Apartment Near Pisa



Updated: 05-Aug-2016
Apartment in Calci, Pisa, Tuscany and Florence, Italy - Stunning 2 bed Apartment in Main Square of the Typically Tuscan Town of Calci between Pisa & Lucca

Apartment Cairoli has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a sitting room and a large kitchen. There is also a spacious balcony accessed via the kitchen with panoramic views over the picturesque Pisan hills. The apartment is located on the second floor (36 steps) of a typical Tuscan palazzo in the centre of the historic village of Calci midway between Pisa and Lucca. It overlooks the charming main square (called Piazza Cairoli). It was totally renovated in 2013 and has a brand new bathroom and kitchen. From the rear terrace there are panoramic views of the stunning Pisan hills. Calci is just 15 minutes from Pisa Airport, 20 minutes from Lucca and within easy driving reach of the famous Tuscan cities of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra.

The Certosa di Calci (Pisa Charter house) is situated in the village (10 minutes walk from the apartment) and, in addition to a natural history museum and many other exhibitions, houses the largest freshwater acquarium in Italy.

The vineyards of Chianti are easily accessible as is the unique Unesco listed Heritage site of the Cinque Terre. The seaside and the beaches of Livorno, Viareggio and Marina di Pisa are about 30 minutes drive. The nearby natural park of San Rossore and the delightful spa town of San Giuliano Terme are also well worth a visit. Calci, while small and compact, has all the conveniences you need to make your holiday comfortable, enjoyable and stress free. The apartment is in the absolute centre of this charming village, so everything is just a few minutes stroll from the front door. There is a large supermarket, butcher, baker, chemist, post office and three banks. There are a number of cafes, bars and restaurants as well as a hairdresser, garage, tennis courts and a public swimming pool. A lively and colourful street market takes place every Wednesday. Calci is famous for its Certosa, the former Cistercian Monastery, which is now a wonderful Natural History Museum in the care of the University of Pisa. Because of its position in the lovely Val Graziosa, Calci is an ideal location for walkers, hikers and cyclists. There is a local bus service to Pisa which then has public transport connections to all of Tuscany (train and bus) but a car is recommended for convenience when staying in Apartment Cairoli. A welcome hamper is provided to all guests on arrival and there is free parking across the street approximately 30m from the apartment. Bikes are available on request as is a travel cot and/or high chair.

About the Owner

I am Irish and have lived and worked in Italy for over 20 years. I live in the wonderful village of Calci, just outside Pisa and consider myself very lucky to live there. My husband is Italian and we have three wonderful children who go to school in the town and have grown up bi-lingual.

Tuscan Adventure.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we couldn't have been made more welcome!

The apartment was a really pleasant surprise with the most wonderful view from the terrazza of olive tree covered hills dotted with charming colourful homes.

Wow.. we would just gaze at the beauty... between sips of wine! There was everything you could need in the apartment and I mean everything..all well organised and clean. Nearby were all the necessary shops, good supermarket, bank etc.The little town of CalcI, which is only twenty minutes from Pisa airport, is not far from all the sights of Tuscany. We really got about on our stay of a month and loved Lucca, Viareggio, Volterra, Florence, Montepulciano to name but a few. Then there was the food of course!

Plenty of free parking near the apartment was very handy.

All in all a great holiday!

Would thoroughly recommend this well equipped and comfortable apartment....and also Calci as a base for exploring Tuscany.

Indeed, we had a great Tuscan adventure!

Tuscan Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm welcome and it got better and better..The property ,while recently modernised, has retained its authentic Italian character with the main Piazza right outside the front door. All rooms are nicely decorated and pristine. The views from the property are stunning.

The apartment is the perfect base from which to explore Tuscany or the perfect retreat in which to relax and take in the beauty of the countryside while spending quality time with friends and or family. The owner kept regular contact in the lead up to the holiday, offering to find us things to do, excursions to take and providing ideas for the week.

On a lazy day we enjoyed sipping a glass of local wine while relaxing on the balcony to the back of the property and taking in the tranquil hillside views.

I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Tuscany. It is within easy access of Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Siena ,etc..

Appt Caroli, Calci

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely apartment last September. It was our third time to visit Calci and we were delighted this time to find apartment Cairoli.

The apartment itself has been modernised to a very high standard and is extremely comfortable. We ate our meals on the balcony which looks out over manicured gardens and the spectacular view of the Tuscan hills. There is a supermarket nearby and cafes with luscious cakes and pastries. There is also a pizzeria and a number of restaurants which cater for all tastes and budgets.

The location gives great Italian village living while at the same time is conveniently midway between Pisa and Lucca.

A big plus for us was the great welcome we got from our hostess who lives locally and is English speaking. Her advice and information was invaluable and the welcome pack of essentials was much appreciated.

We love this place and will be back again in the near future.
