  • 4.7/5 The stay at villa Palaia was one of my most exciting ones in Italy. I am a frequent traveler to Florence but really wanted to see Pisa once in my life. So I looked for a convenient place between the two cities looking on this website I have found this jewel, sitting on top of a beautiful Tuscan countryside hill. The location is superb: within an hour drive to Florence or Pisa (if traffic helps), in a quiet area with 360-degree views to seemingly endless olive tree plantations and vineyards. It is within 15-min drives to small, pitoresque villages where you can buy groceries and pastries, and have a capuccino. The villa is very comfortable, has a unique atmosphere and is really a must see! Really suggested! Loved this stay and will do it again!
  • 4.9/5 The owner does have style and taste and they know how to welcome you! They renovated this beautiful hill top property in the most relaxing and enticing way imaginable, and hospitality is in their blood. I felt very lucky to stumble upon this hidden gem, and I would definitely go back whenever I can!
