The interiors have been designed with family living in mind with a big Tuscan table in the kitchen as well as a second table placed on the patio for dining al fresco! Original features include antique terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and 2 open fireplaces. PRIVATE AND TRANQUIL If you’re looking for complete privacy and a tranquil location Casa Giovanna is your perfect retreat. LOVELY VIEWS WITH OLIVE TREES AND PRIVATE POOL The outside space is charming surrounded by Cypress and olive trees as well as bushes of brightly coloured Oleander. From the upstairs bedrooms, there are beautiful views over the valley and hills. There is plenty of places for children to play on the lawn, hidden shaded corners for those who like to stay cool and sun traps for those who want to soak up the sun. The private pool is a welcomed new addition to the house this year (2017) and measure 7 x 5 meters. Photos of the pool are not available at present as the pool has not yet been filled for the season. Photos will be available by the end of April 2017. PLENTY OF PRIVATE PARKING SPACE AND EASY ACCESS There is plenty of parking space right next to the house. Access is down a leafy lane part of which is surfaced and is easy to navigate CLOSE TO AUTHENIC HILL TOP VILLAGE The charming village of Palaia with its Medieval heart and beautiful panoramic views is just under a mile/1.5 kilometers away and for those who like to walk it is quite possible from the property. However, we do recommend using a car if visiting in the evenings due to the dimly lit country lanes. The village of Palaia has everything you need to enjoy your stay in rural Tuscany, a couple of bars, a handful of restaurants, grocery stores, bakers etc.…The nearby larger town of Pontedera is just under a 30-minute drive away where you can stock up on the way at a bigger supermarket GENUINE FARM PRODUCE AVAILABLE FROM THE OWNER The owners produce red wine, extra virgin olive oil, oney and salame, all of which are available to buy directly from the owner. ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE Arrival is between 4:00pm and 7:00pm Departure is at 10:00 am SECURITY DEPOSIT A refundable security deposit is required on arrival of 500 Euros PET FEE 35 Euro per pet per stayMore

We (three generations) spent 12 wonderful days in Casa Giovanni, an authentic Tuscan house which offers everything we wished for/ though the area a bit quiet for teenagers. Both owner and agents were extremely helpful and we highly recommend this place. Do try the PASTA...More

About the neighbourhood
The Medieval town of Palaia sits high on a ridge with mesmerising panoramic views over the Valdera. Located in the province of Pisa the town is ideally located between the cities of Pisa, Lucca and Florence as well as being close to the wine region of Terriciola. The town itself is charming and compact with everything you need such as 2 bars, a handful of restaurants, 3 grocery stores, a pharmacy, and bank. The surrounding area is mainly agricultural land, a mix of rolling hills topped with vines and olive trees, and in the woods and forests the precious white truffle is hunted.
