About This Listing
Our B & B is located in the heart of Tuscany and makes it easy for you to visit some of the most important artistic, culinary and wine regions. We are half an hour's drive from Florence, Pisa, Lucca and San Gimignano. Siena is only an hour by car. We are very close to San Miniato, a magnificent medieval town famous for its international truffle fair in November. During the summer there are many musical and theatrical events. The gentle rolling hills here are quiet and peaceful, with easy access to the FI-PI-LI freeway.
Guests stay in a room in our home with a private bathroom and roof top terrace with panoramic views of Tuscan hill towns. The room has a large library with books in several languages along with a stereo and television for you to use. In the morning a breakfast of homemade pastries, fresh juice, coffee or espresso and fruit is served in the cucina.
We provide parking gratis and are about half an hour from major airports (Pisa and Florence).

Silvia's place was really nice. The room and the bathroom were clean. The terrace was just wonderful to have a glass in the evening and to read in the morning sun. We really enjoyed our stay there as Silvia was extremely helpful and welcomed us with a nice drink of prosecco. It was really nice to chat with her and her relatives who were very interesting. We felt like home and that's why we travel with Airbnb. Silvia recommended a place to eat in San Miniato that was excellent. She even gave us a bottle of wine as it was too late in the evening for us to buy one in a shop! Breakfast was the best one we had during our week in Italy with exceptionnally good products. We only stayed for one night but would definitely go back there for a longer stay! Very family friendly and typically Italian! Thank you ever so much Silvia!
Remarquable accueil, Silvia est très chaleureuse,souriante, serviable et elle parle français. Nous avions tout un étage pour 4 avec deux chambres, un grand salon une salle de bain impeccable et une très grande cuisine! Silvia nous avait préparé un délicieux petit déjeuner avec nourriture à profusion sur sa superbe terrasse qui offre un très joli panorama sur San Miniato. De plus la maison se trouve à seulement 5 min en voiture du charmant village de San Miniato! Un seul mot à dire : parfait!
Silvia was very nice and the place is conveniently between Pisa and Firenze. Clean and spacious apartment with two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and livingroom was at our disposal as well as Silvia's children's trampoline! Italian breakfast on balcony. The place is in La Scala area of San Miniato, so dont't drive uphill to actual San Miniato, the old town center (although that is a beautiful place with a fabulous scenery and worth a visit). Vinci, the birth town of Leonardo da Vinci with a museum and his birth estate, is a few kilometres away.
Ein kleiner Traum mitten in der Toskana. Silvia war die perfekte Gastgeberin - sie und ihre Familie sind sehr gastfreundlich! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Das Zimmer mit der kleinen Terrasse (wundervolle Aussicht!) war perfekt. Ich empfehle diese Unterkunft jedem weiter. Ein toller Aufenthalt - danke!
Silvia was very welcoming as we arrived at her perfectly located B&B. we spent a very rainy week in Tuscany touring the beautiful countryside and enjoying the food. The apartment is huge and was warm, but the decor is a little "tired", the internet connection was very erratic and the bathroom was the only space with views of the beautiful valley of San Miniato.

About the Host, Silvia
Ho lasciato Padova la mia città per vivere in Toscana con mio marito Gianfranco, che ha saputo farmi innamorare di questi luoghi e dei sapori della sua terra, essendo lui un cuoco impareggiabile! gestire un B&B per noi rappresenta un modo di viaggiare, di far conoscere ai nostri figli altre culture e tradizioni attraverso l’incontro con i nostri ospiti. Noi stessi abbiamo fatto per anni le nostre vacanze in B&B e possiamo dire che i luoghi visitati in questo modo sono diventati un po’ anche nostri perchè è la conoscenza, le abitudini e il calore umano che rendono una vacanza, anche se di pochi giorni, indimenticabile e vera…altrimenti sarebbe come guardare una cartolina o sfogliare un libro. Alla Piccionaia potete trovare tutto questo ma anche la riservatezza e tranquillità di un posto immerso nel verde, dove la mattina si fa colazione con il canto degli uccelini e il belare delle caprette dei nostri vicini di casa (persone squisite!) saremo lieti di suggerirvi mete e destinazioni di questi luoghi e trasmettervi il nostro entusiasmo nel conoscere una Toscana diversa e inaspettata.
