                                Your first thought coming in this villa is how clean it is and how warm and inviting Marco and Vivetta make you feel. They love people, that was evident from the beginning. We stayed two weeks and used the house as base to visit and explore Tuscany. We went as far south as Cortona and Northwest to Cinque Terre. We visited 21 other cities, well off the beaten path. Marco and Vivetta was well organized for and helped us navigate different cities with things to do and had directions for local restaurants, shopping, food etc. In the little town of Castel Del Bosco is a great little bakery that was fun to go to several mornings during our stay. Great selections of local sweets for the a morning taste of Tuscany with a fresh cup of coffee. Delicious treats. A car is needed for this location. It sits about half way between Florence and Pisa. We stayed here with another couple and there was more then ample place for the four of us. You hear local church bells and the church was in walking distance of this Villa, attending church was a nice experience as well. Vivetta made several meals for us which was a great meal of home cooked Tuscan fare. She knows how to cook your taste bud will explode. Sampling the local wines was fun too. All sorts of different vineyards offer their best for our taste buds. It was a great Italian vacation and without hesitation would come back to this Villa again. If you're thinking of renting this Villa, you are making the right choice for many reasons.

                                How would you like to spend time in Tuscany at a place that has picture book scenery, an ideal location, spacious and spotless accommodation with all the amenities of home, plus generous hospitality. Villa dei Pini has it all. In mid September my wife and I along with another couple spent ten nights enjoying the experience. Scenery - The setting is quiet and relaxing. Villa dei Pini is located on a ridge where there a peaceful view of the country side that can be enjoyed while sitting on the balcony having coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Location - Villa dei Pini is located just off the highway between Pisa and Florence (FiPiSi) and has easy access to shopping, grocery stores and restaurants. The easiest way to get there is to either fly or take the train into Pisa and then rent a car. Once you are settled in and want to visit places like Florence, Siena and Cinque Terra it is advisable to take the short drive into Pontedera and then take the train because of parking difficulties in the larger centers. The villa is centrally located and is close to many famous attractions that are possible to enjoy by making day trips. Spacious and spotless accommodation - The villa is spotless and very well maintained. It has two large bedrooms and two washrooms separated from the rest of the living area so privacy is possible for two couples. Use of the laundry room and separate ironing room gave us flexibility in catching up from our previous travels and preparing for the next leg of our trip. The kitchen and eating area were large, comfortable and contained all the necessary amenities to make eating in enjoyable. Generous Hospitality - Vivetta and Marco were very gracious hosts and sincerely made us feel welcome into their home. They provided answers to all our questions and gave us helpful suggestions on how to get the most out of exploring the area. On two separate occasions Vivetta and Marco gave us a mini tour around Castel del Bosco to show us different things that we asked about. The night that Vivetta prepared a pasta dinner for us was both a culinary and cultural experience. It was more than food, it was the presentation and the camaraderie that goes with it. We arrived as guests but left feeling like we were close friends.

                                Recommended for: Sightseeing.

                                We stayed at Villa Dei Pini for ten days in September 2013. We shared this very large, sparkling clean Villa with another couple. Don’t worry about having your own space here. The bedrooms are very large, each with their own sitting area and lots of closet space. The living and dining rooms were hardly ever used as we mostly gathered in the kitchen/dining area. There is also a laundry room and ironing room. Situated between Florence and Pisa, the Villa affords easy access to the FI/PI/LI, so it is easy to do day trips to many places. We rented a car and used it for all of our trips except for the trip to Florence. For that trip we took the train. The Villa has everything you will need and if it’s not there just ask Vivette or Marco. They live upstairs and rent out the downstairs. The moment we met the owners, we felt so welcomed. They gave us a tour of the villa, explaining some things, like how to use the wash machine. On the table, they had left us a bottle of red and white wine and some snacks and in the fridge there was a bottle of water and some juices. Here, each of you will receive a whole set of towels, which is not typical in Italy. Part way through our stay, we received fresh sheets and towels. Certainly we will have memories of this fabulous accommodation, but it is the warmth of this wonderful family that will live in your heart forever. Vivette drove us around the area, showing us where the grocery store was, where to park the car when we took the train to Florence and then took us to Fattoria S. Lucia Ristoro Borgo alla Cantina, a restaurant and winery, where she introduced us to the owners. This is a place you do not want to miss for it was here that we would enjoy the best meal of our month long stay in Italy. Vivette, even cooked for us one night, making 2 different pasta dishes. Vivette and Marco speak and understand English. Wish we could say the same about our Italian. A stay here is a must for it is here that you will experience the Heart and Soul of Italy. Molto amare

                                My husband and I stayed with another oouple in Villa dei Pini for 8 days. The property was so beautiful. We sat out on the balcony every morning with coffee and every evening with a glass of vino and enjoyed the view and talked about the day. The villa was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were able to do our laundry, cook our meals and relax after long days of sight seeing. The villa is centrally located with grocery stores, restaurants, train station and bus stops nearby. We had a car (which is a MUST) and drove to Lucca, Voltera and around Pontedera. We took the train to Florence, Cinque Terra and a bus to Pisa. We had the most wonderful time; the weather was perfect. Vivettta and Marco were so sweet and helpful in planning our day trips. I would highly recommend this property for a wonderful stay in Tuscany.

                                We cannot say enough about the villa and Vivetta and Marco. They truly are super hosts. Not only are they good people, but Vivetta is also a fantastic cook. We enjoyed some of her fantastic Tuscan food and her delicious sauces. The villa is absolutely clean and spotless. It is very safe and is gated. We found this place to be very convenient and central to a lot of day trips. Florence 35mins, Pisa 20 mins, Lucca 25 mins, Siena 1 hr 15 min.The beach near Livorno is also very close.You will definitely need a car when staying here. Vivetta and Marco were very helpful with directions and advice about the places to visit or to avoid. They have a lot of maps and pamphlets about tourist places of interest, which we found very helpful. Vivetta and Marco thank you very much for your kind and warm welcome and outstanding hospitality. If you a looking for a place to stay while in Tusacny, in a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood, friendly hosts and awesome Tuscan food, then this is the place.

                                The on-line listing is understated compared to the actual property which very clean and extremely well maintained. To our friends we have described the house as a mansion and it is so spacious we felt “lost” at first. There are French doors in the halls between the bedroom spaces and living, so if you have early risers, they do not have to disturb the others. Villa is beautifully furnished in rich woods. We especially enjoyed the view from the balcony where we took morning coffee and evening wine. All amenities were available, including a generous assortment of electrical adaptors. Vivetta and Marco are very warm, welcoming and generous. We were treated to home-cooking (Vivetta made us the most amazing Bolognese sauce) and we were greeted with an amazing Chianti. Admittedly we needed their help with making reservations at local restaurants as we did not have much luck on our own. The villa is so pleasant, you might want to spend all your time there, but it is in a small community so a car is needed if you plan to see the sights. There is a train station only 15 minutes away. We preferred to travel to places such as Pisa and Florence that way. We have and will continue to recommend this place to family and friends.

                                I just love my Italian home away from home!!!! I look forward to every trip to Tuscany, especially because I know that my experience will be comfortable and relaxing! Staying at Villa Dei Pini allows me to unwind from the stresses of everyday life as I explore all of the wonders that Tuscany has to offer! The setting is beautiful and very peaceful, yet close to so many fantastic places to visit in Tuscany. Imagine my surprise when I found that there is a Prada outlet less than 15 minutes from the apartment! If you are looking for the comforts of home blended perfectly with the Tuscan lifestyle, Villa Dei Pini is the place to stay. I cannot imagine a visit to Tuscany if I weren't staying there. Vivetta and Marco make every visit special!

                                We stayed here this summer for a few nights to visit our cousin. Beautiful house, centrally located for visiting all that Tuscany has to offer. Our four-year old particularly enjoyed feeding the resident tortoises and Vivetta was very thoughtful giving us a big box of toys for Sean to play with…. Very roomy and comfortable.

                                I have stayed at the Villa dei Pini multiple times over the past decade. Each time, I am met by the warm welcome of Vivetta and Marco. They treat each of their guests like members of their families. The property is like a home away from home. In fact, it is larger than the home I usually live in! The apartment is equipped with all the conveniences of one's own house: linens, kitchen appliances, pots, pans... in short, everything you need to live like a real Italian for your vacation. The hamlet of Castel del Bosco is centrally located, just minutes from the major east-west autostrada between Pisa and Florence (20 minutes from Pisa airport). Being so convenient to the highway, you are just an easy drive to any of Tuscany's major attractions, be they siteseeing opportunities, or beaches. I would recommend this property without any reservation to anyone wanting a stress-free sojourn under the Tuscan sun!

                                Recommended for: Sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.
