Nice property, centrally located for touring Tuscany.
We (a mixed party of 5 guests) enjoyed our stay at this property in Vicopisano although we found the village to be even quieter than we had expected.
Marie was particularly attentive prior to our arrival (communication second to none) and organised a lovely wine tour with private transport included for a very reasonable price. Although Marie and Lorenzo were away during our stay, their friend and representative Denise was always exceptionally helpful and immediately dealt with and resolved an issue that we had during our stay. We were a little disappointed with the balcony that was mentioned in the property details as it really wasn’t big enough for 5 people to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine on (although had we looked closer at the photographs we would have realised this). There are however a couple of nice bars where you can idle an evening away al fresco. The electric freestanding fans in the bedrooms were a godsend as we found the house to be very warm indeed (no air conditioning but again, had we read the property details properly we would have realised this).
For dining out, the restaurant Aurora was excellent on our first visit, but this gradually became less good on each subsequent visit (3 visits in total), however we did find an excellent Pizzeria for a couple of take aways, and on our final night we found the Vecchia Posta Osteria just around the corner which was absolutely superb. A word of warning, Vicopisano closes down almost completely on Mondays!!
This comfortable property has ample parking very close by, and is perfectly situated for visiting Pisa, Lucca, and Vinci.
Charming property in a lovely Tuscan Village
Two friends and I shard this comfortable apartment for 5 nights and had a lovely time. Casa di Vico is conveniently located to visit many favorite Tuscan villages and towns but we also enjoyed exploring Vicopisano itself. Marie and Lorenzo are charming hosts and very attentive.
5 star Tuscan Charm
Wow wow this is the 3rd time I’ve visited this beautiful village and enjoyed the excellent hospitality of marie & Lorenzo. This beautiful and tastefully decorated apartment was beautiful, extremely clean and spacious and ideally located near all the amenities.
I went with friends how suitable for families and couples. Loved by long weekend and will always book with Marie & Lorenzo
How great it was to welcome you back in Vicopisano and thank you for choosing to return to Vicopisano and to one of our Authentic Tuscan properties.It was great to catch up with you and your group of friends we had so much fun showing you around the village and catching up over a glass of Prosecco or two. Please know that we are always happy and excited to welcome you back to Vicopisano. See you in 2018!
Vicopisano was bellissimo!!
What can we say? We absolutely loved joining the wonderful little community of Vicopisano for 5 days! The village feel is so authentic and charming, we loved everything about it.
Marie was a fabulous host and went out of her way to ensure we were informed and comfortable upon arrival. I've never stayed somewhere that had so much helpful information on hand! She had books of tips and guides for everything.
The apartment itself is lovely, spread over three floors: ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen & dining and a small toilet, first floor is a comfy lounge and a large bedroom with bathroom up the hall, and top floor is 2 further large bedrooms, both with ensuites. Every possible amenity was on hand - we wanted for nothing, even down to shower soaps, dishwasher tabs and laundry powder. A very well decked out apartment that we enjoyed immensely. Our only issue was the heat and the apartment not having air conditioning, which meant (particularly for the top floor) that it was hot for sleeping, but we used the fans and it was okay. If there is some way that even a portable AC could be used on that top floor I'd have given it 5 stars, as everything else was wonderful.
A wander through the village was a daily necessity, even if it was just pre-dinner drink 50m up the road at the little 'hole in the wall' bar, or a little further in the town square. I mean, seriously, E9.50 for 2 Aperol spritz's, a beer and a fruit juice?!?! Insane! To slip into the life of a local was so enjoyable, to fossick in the supermarket & bakery, the butcher shop was amazing, fetching fresh water from the fountain at the end of the street... everything was just brilliant. The little paths up by the tower were a delight, particularly for our 8yo on her permanent quest to find gato's!!
Our favourite restaurant (by far) was Hosteria Enoteca La Divina Commedia del Gusto... recommended by Marie upon arrival, and she even called and booked for us on our first night. What a delightful restaurant, and the staff so helpful and lovely. I even had a stool provided for my bag to sit on!! Amazing food and service. We booked there and then for our final night in Vicopisano. We also drove to Buti one night for dinner at La Grotta - super-cheap and delicious food, all served by the most fun mama we encountered in Italy!
Day trips to Lucca, Pisa and Viareggio (enormous beach!) and our favourite, Volterra, were superb. We'll long remember our stay in Vicopisano...
Thank you so much for giving us such a great and informative review, Feedback from our guests is always most appreciated as it helps us to continue doing the right things to ensure our guests have a great stay. in addition, feedback also informs our future guests of what to expect when they arrive. It was wonderful to hear that you appreciated how well equipped you found the property but we regret that you found that the upper levels of the house too hot despite the fact that we provide fans for every room. I know I did mention to you at the time, it’s a difficult balance installing air conditioning into these Medieval buildings situated in the historic centre. The main reason is planning permission because it is not permitted to put refrigeration units onto the ancient stone walls. Usually the thick walls keep the buildings nice and cool but this year we had an exceptionally hot summer and we very much understand why air conditioning would have been appreciated.
Despite the heat it was great to hear that you had such a good time discovering Vicopisano and the wider region of Tuscany. We are so pleased that you loved everything we have prepared for you and that you appreciated our concierge services and recommendations. We thank you for taking time to write this review and we do hope you will come back to Vicopisano and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future
With Warmest Regards,
