APPARTAMENTI LA ROCCA
Palaia, Tuscany, Italy
Additional Location Information
PALAIA is a medieval village located on a high hilltop which divide the Arno valley from the Valdera valley and is surrounded by the gentle Tuscan countryside. Its good position, at only 10 minutes driving to the dual carriage way S.G.C. FI-PI-LI, allows you to easily move to the most important Tuscan cities (Firenze, Lucca, Pisa, Siena, S. Gimignano, Volterra) and to the Tyrrhenian seacost.
The village extends for 73,82 kmq and has nearly 4500 inhabitants.
Thanks to the natural beauty of its territory, its evocative landscapes and the important role it held since the year 1000, Palaia has become one of the most charming places not only in the Pisan province but also in the whole Tuscany.
The emperors Henry VI, Otto IV and Charles IV granted bishops of Lucca half of the fortress of Palaia, with privileges of the year 1191, 1209 and 1355, and they confirmed the Pisan rule over the territory.
In the year 1406 Palaia was under the sway of Florence.
Many medieval villages around Palaia have Etruscan and Roman origins but the castles in this area became very important only since the early Middle Ages.
Palaia and its territory are very rich in historical monuments.
The Pieve of San Martino is the main attraction of this historical village. It wa built on the designs of Andrea Pisano between 1270 and 1300 and the oldest section to be built was the apse. The church is in late Romanesque style with Gothic elements. On its facade you can admire the alternation between the brick courses and the decorative elements in stone, which create a very pleasing effect. The lateral walls are decorated with small arches and with corbels. On these corbels you can admire rich sculpted elements. The interior has three naves of five spans, with three chapels opening on to a raised presbytery.
The inspiring, evocative landscape of Palaia reveals a place that has a rich, historical and agricultural heritage: at any corner the tourists can feel the essence of rustic life while the timeless atmosphere of the village will bring them back to time. Here, tourists can go for long walks in the countryside, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypresses or they can also enjoy the scenic routes dotted with isolated farms, farmhouses and villas on foot, on horseback or by bicycle.
They also enjoy the wild woods abounding with mushrooms, truffles and game; the beautiful gullies of Toiano, the carbon dioxide and the sulphurous anhydride emissions of Chiecinella and many others.
Predominately agricultural, the gently rolling hills are full of olive groves and vineyards. For this reason Palaia has a particular production of wines of excellent quality, like Chianti of the Pisan Hills, olive oil and many others genuine products.
In the last few years, farm holidays of high level and other holiday resorts have spread all over the territory together with restaurants, recreational facilities and other recreational establishments.
That's the reason why we can assure an unforgettable holiday to tourists from both Italy and the rest of Europe.

Best Holiday apartment
We contacted Enrico via e-mail. He responded promptly. We arrived late at night (it took longer than expected to get from Pisa to Palaia). Enrico was waiting for us regardless and we were welcomed with some aperetif and an apple pie baked by Enrico's wife. The apartment is well equipped - everything I needed was on hand, right down to the bottle opener. There were even a few bottles of local wine for 'sale' in the apartment. Large comfortable apartment with sleeping for 6. Good wifi or use of PC (but not both). Chianti tastes sooo good amongst the fragrance of the conifers and olive groves! Parking is a bit of a problem but we managed. Good choice of restaurants in the village and a supermarket about 10mins by car. There is a laundry downstairs and some bicycles but they were all out of order. On the down side there is no garden or pool (it was really hot in September) and getting around Tuscany is quite tedious. Recommend this place if you are after complete peace and quiet/quiet walks.
We stay in Tuscany regularly and use a lot of apartments around Peccioli. The friendly owner welcomed us and left a basket of fresh fruit and two glasses of vinsanto for a first night cap. The kitchen was spotless and had gas cooker, electric toaster fridge frezer and good selection of utensils. New digital tv with a computer and dvd player. Italian internet is only good in the big cities but good enough for slow surf and emails. Mattress gave me a backache but splendid jacuzzi helps put it right! Palaia is hill country and gets cold at night, parking near the flat can be difficult but another car park at other end of town, taking you passed the excellent restaurants. Look out for wild boar, porcupines and pheasants. Have a ponch at Dar Giannini on the way.

Wonderful vacation in Tuscany
I stayed at the appartamenti La Rocca for one week with my family of four. The experience was wonderful. The apartment was well appointed, clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The central location enabled us to visit many of Tuscany's attractions within a short drive. I would highly recommend The appartamenti La Rocca..
