About the Property
Pisa,Tuscany Italy:Spacious well-equipped olive grove farmhouses & pool sleeps 6
This is a beautiful and perfectly positioned location for your holiday: immersed in unspoilt nature and yet close to the famous Tuscan art cities of Pisa, Lucca, Florence and other nearby, lesser known gems.
La Lucertola is both near to the coast and near to the hills and mountains, yet remains convenient for access to the road, rail and air networks. Here, you can hear birdsong, enjoy the scent of the flowers and herbs and can muse and let your mind wander and relax over the fabulous views both near and far.
We offer the choice of two farmhouses in Tuscany both of which can accommodate up to 6 guests.
These properties can be rented separately or together sharing a salt water, chlorine-free swimming pool in its own secure and dedicated stunning area.
The farmhouses are set in an ancient olive grove on the southern slopes of Monti Pisani – an environmentally protected area of outstanding natural beauty.
We look forward to welcoming you to this special place.

Fabulous accommodation: The accommodation offers two beautiful, spacious and well-equipped, environmentally sensitive farmhouses, each of which can accommodate up to six people.
The houses enjoy the use of a shared, salt water, chlorine free swimming pool in its own secure and dedicated area. The farmhouses are set on the south facing slopes of the Monti Pisani, an environmentally protected area of outstanding natural beauty, in the midst of terraced olive grove, fruit trees, birds and wild flowers.
The houses are set on a hill and are reached by a private road up above the charming hamlet of Pugnano and enjoy spectacular views over forest, field, Pisa, The Leaning Tower and The Mediterranean Sea beyond. The ever changing countryside offers the holiday maker a year round choice for travel.
Feel good about this choice of holiday: The farmhouses are a genuinely environmentally sensitive choice. Solar panels contribute to the electricity supply. The water is supplied from a permanent spring from a cave above the houses - one washes in it, bathes in it and swims in it – wonderful! With many other green initiatives this is a destination to feel good about.
Great location: The farmhouses are in a superb position: about 20 minutes by road from both Pisa and Lucca, 30 minutes from the coast, an hour from Florence and lesser known gems making exploration fun and worth while. The combination of hills, sea and proximity to places of cultural interest make this a holiday location to suit and inspire all moods and fancies at all times of year.
Activities: There is plenty to do here for all ages and to fit all moods and tastes! Activities such as cookery courses, 'Restaurant at Home' catering, canoeing, rafting, cycling, walking, running, paragliding and horse-riding can be arranged either prior to arrival or while you are here

About the owner: Colin, Max (age 14) and I live in a separate house and love living here! We try our absolute best to ensure that everything is as it should be for you when you arrive and indeed during your holiday. We are always respectful of your privacy and we want all our guests of all ages to feel free, happy and relaxed. It isn't easy to write about yourself, so here is what previous guests have said about us: 'Luisa and Colin are the perfect hosts and I would like to thank them for allowing us to spend a little time sharing their little piece of Tuscan heaven.' 'The owners live on site and provide a friendly information facility and comprehensive support.' 'Thanks to Luisa and Colin for their hospitality. 'The hospitality and friendliness of the hosts was superb...wee things like this can make a holiday. Always there if needed but never intrusive.'
Why the Owner Chose San Giuliano Terme, Pisa, Italy:
Luisa taught English in a school near Pisa in 1986 and fell in love with the area. We returned, many times. We made lifelong friends and began to feel that this could be a new home and a new life. After 12 years of living and working in London, we decided to take the plunge, change direction and embrace the challenge of creating a new life. We wanted to be closer to nature, direct our own affairs and to live in a beautiful place with a decent climate. We found 'La Lucertola' as a semi ruin, completely overgrown and crying out for some love and attention. We first fell in love with the incredible view and the prospect of living in the country but close to Pisa and the sea. The view is unique, breathtaking and truly inspiring. We can see The Leaning Tower, the coast and the islands of Capraia and Corsica. We overlook olive grove, forest, field and village. Overhead are birds of prey and the night sounds of owls. This place gives us inspiration and the energy to live a good and authentic life. We are happy to share this beauty and joy with our guests who over 14 years of operation wholeheartedly testify to the magic of this very special location. The houses are spacious, comfortable and well proportioned. One would happily live in them all year round - they are much more than a simple rental property - they are proper houses with a true sense of home.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The view - irreplaceable and unique. And the place itself - beautiful and inspiring, relaxing and uplifting. From the first moment we looked out over the olive grove, into the fields and then onto the unmistakeable view of The Leaning Tower of Pisa we knew this was the place for us. Three houses, all with their own front doors. One for us and two for the guests - perfect! With the convenience of a country location and the amenities of Pisa and Lucca close to hand and Florence only an hour away. Also appealing to us is the easy proximity to beaches, mountains and rivers. We did not wish to be in an isolated position so the quick access to the airport, the motorway system and the national rail network without being able to see them or hear them was also important.
