Tuscan Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Bella Vista was everything we were hoping for our Tuscan holiday! It is sparkling with light, comfortable beds and bedding, beautifully decorated, includes every necessity, and it's super clean! The location is excellent for adventuring in Tuscany, and it is situated in a quaint rustic village. Roberta, the property manager went above and beyond to meet our needs, she is a gem! She thoughtfully prepared a space for our grandbaby ahead of time, we felt so welcomed and cared for, we were greeted with wine and the makings of a pasta dinner and fresh fruit for breakfast. She was so helpful at each point of contact and and provided us with many useful tips for enjoying our stay. The kitchen has a huge table for family dinners and relaxation together. A wonderful experience, this property is highly recommended.

A little piece of Tuscan Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Casa Bella Vista in order to share a significant birthday with family and friends; 8 of us and three more in the sister apartment downstairs. It looked perfect in the photos and was even better in reality....spacious, beautifully decorated,well situated in a small but very welcoming hill town and run by an excellent hostess, Roberta. She could not have been more helpful or more enthusiastic about her lovely home town! Everyone was thrilled and the highlight was a marvellous in-home cooking class that she arranged, perfect for all my guests who ranged in age from 8 to 72. Would highly recommend this to anyone with a love of Italy and of life in a medieval village.

I and 2 friends stayed at Casa Bella Vista for the month of May. It is an attractive apartment with easy elevator access, and is very clean and well maintained. My bed was very comfortable and the bed linens were very nice. It had everything we needed such as a large, beautiful and well equipped kitchen and a clothes washer. The windows are large and let in a lot of light. The views are fantastic! We loved being in the small village of Vicopisano. We walked into town (3 minute walk) just about every morning for cappuccino. It is a great, central location for visiting Tuscany.

Roberta was absolutely wonderful and beyond helpful! She did all the arrangements for a variety of events, such as a wonderful cooking class, wine tasting, truffle hunting, a local olive oil mill, restaurant reservations, Elba, Pisa, Cinque Terre, a spa nearby, 3 beaches, and so many other things and places I can't even remember them all. She helped us out when we received a parking ticket and had a problem with our rental car. She is a great person, but if you want privacy and less help, she has no problem with that either.

One suggestion I have is that it would have been nice to have a place to relax with comfortable lounge chairs outside, especially since the garden space is very nice.

Overall, we were very satisfied with Casa Bella Vista! Thank you for everything Roberta!

Casa Bella Vista was the perfect base for touring the Tuscany region.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect village to base our tour for the area.We enjoyed the welcome by Roberta the owner and a tour of the village. She was most helpful and very welcoming. It really felt like we were living among friends and family in the most beautiful village. The apartment was as beautiful as the pictures and ideal for the four of us. It would also work well for a family with the upstairs loft. With great shops locally supplying all we needed to prepare our own meals in the most beautiful kitchen it was hard to decide if we were going out or eating in. it was a perfect rest stop after 20 days on the road, with side trips to Pisa, Volterra, Florence and yes even Lucca. We have promised Roberta to return as soon as we can to this oasis in Vicopisano.

A beautiful Tuscany home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Bella Vista for 9 days, and we loved it! The appartement is even more beautiful than in the pictures, and very clean and well equipped. We had our to teenaged girls with us, and the appartement was very spacious for the four of us. Vicapisano is a wonderful little village, and everyone was so friendly. We were going on a lot of sightseeing, never using more than an hour with car; Lucca, Florence, Volterra, Pisa, Marina di Pisa and Castiglioncello. Roberta was so sweet and helpful at all time, she even had prepared a map for us as I told her we would like to go for morning runs. She was so friendly and really made us feel welcome, and was ready to help us whenever we contacted her. We really recommend this appartement, and hope to be back!

Mooi huis en prettige uitvalsbasis

  • 4 of 5

Het huis is zeer compleet met mooie kamers en veel luxe. Het huis is ook diervriendelijk. Wij waren met 2 volwassenen, 4 kinderen en een hond. Veel mooie bezienswaardigheden en stranden op ongeveer een 40min rijden vanaf het vakantiehuis. Heel mooi dorp met alle praktische voorzieningen zoals supermarkt, pinautomaat, postkantoor en horecagelegenheden. Eigenares is heel vriendelijk en erg behulpzaam. Zij weet veel van de omgeving en heeft veel bruikbare tips aan ons gegeven,
