Our experience exceeded our expectations. The apartment was very spacious, comfortable and well maintained. The grounds were lovely and we looked forward to sitting outside each morning to enjoy the fresh baked goods that were delivered each day.
We appreciated the proximity to the places we wanted to visit while in Tuscany including Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Viareggio, Greve in Chianti and San Gimignano.
We would have enjoyed being able to walk into the towns of Capanne or Montopoli D'Arno but the road outside the gates of the property was too busy and not conducive to this.
The views from the apartment, the swimming pool and our outside dining table were beautiful. It was a lovely area to run without ever leaving the grounds of the estate.

The incredible views, the beautifully manicured grounds, the comfortable, clean indoor areas. The fact that we were surrounded by a working farm growing, among other things, sunflowers, which were in bloom. Lovely, all!
The lack of good directions to the supermarket, train station, ATM.
It is the heart of Tuscany, what else is there to say? Volterra was a particularly beautiful side trip with a car. We went to Florence both by car and by train from Pontedera; finding the station was an adventure. Our daughter and her husband went to Siena and San Gimignano in the evening while be took care of the children, and loved them both.

If I could, I would give this property 10 stars. It exceeded our expectations in EVERY way. The on-site manager is professional, gracious and extremely thoughtful. She speaks English very well. She provided us up front with information about restaurants, activities for children, directions to local grocers and other services, and gave us water, wine and olive oil upon our arrival. The apartment itself was pristine and very well appointed. It was well stocked with items such as toilet paper and dish soap, and laundry soap in the laundry room (and they even have a dryer). They even changed our towels mid-week. The property is very peaceful, beautifully maintained and landscaped, and the pool area is fabulous. This property is truly a gem and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone.
This is hard, because we adored so many things. The peacefulness of the setting was hard to surpass, though. Each apartment has its own outdoor table and chairs with umbrella, and we ate many meals enjoying the view of a distant village beyond the grapevines, under silver-leaved trees. The pool is wonderful, and our small children enjoyed it immensely.
The kitchen is not very big, and the cupboards storing dishes and pots and pans are out in the other rooms, which is a little awkward for anyone doing much cooking, but this is a VERY minor item!
We loved the hills to the south and west, particularly the village of Peccioli. Driving in the area was a lot of fun with wonderful views across the valleys.
