In the near of Lucca you'll find this nice apartment in a little village (Castellvecchio di Compito) up on a little mountain (monte Pisani). There you have a wonderful long view downhill.
There is an organic farm on more than 2 hectars with lovely animals, that means a cat and two dogs. The apartment is between a huge olive field. There is also a forest on the ground and nearby.
In the appartement you'll find one living- and bedroom, a kitchen with a table and chairs to eat and a bathroom. There is one big double bed (for two persons) a loft bed for two persons and further a divan bed for one person. It is intended for a family with two adults and up to three children but also for 5 adults the place is ok, even it is a little bit tight.
Its better to have a car but you can reach Podere Zaira also by bus, ship (Harbour of Livorno) or plane (The airport of Pisa is about half an hour)
All the most beautiful cities of Tuscany are very close (Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa...) and also the sea is pretty close (near Pisa, at about 30 minutes from the farm) and the mountains of Garfagna ( where you can ski, hiking and practice some other sport activities) are about 45 minutes.
The view was breathtaking!!! Josef and his family are very welcoming and considerate. The room is very clean. We will come back if we could. Thanks again!
This was our favourite stay on our seven week adventure. We needed a break from the tourist track and Josef's spread provided that and more. Our seven month old fell in love with the dog and we fell in love with the view and the fresh air. The place had everything we needed. The pad was clean and the kitchen was fully equipped. We were warmly welcomed even though we arrived later than planned. Josef and his fam. were the best hosts ever. Upon leaving we promised each other we would return.
Josef and his family were very kind and welcoming. The apartment was completely above and beyond what we imagined. It was clean and in order of course, but also it was cozy, colorful, and the view was just amazing! Great place, would recommend and actually already have!
Il posto è incantevole, in mezzo agli uliveti. E' l'ideale per rilassarsi. Michela e Josef sono gentili e molto disponibili.
Nous nous sommes rendues chez Josef le 31 décembre, en transit vers Naples. Il a été très disponible, même en ce jour de réveillon et nous a guidé jusqu'à sa très jolie propriété où, avec sa femme, ils font de l'huile d'olive bio.
Le logement est très agréable et la vue sur la région est magnifique...
Josef was very welcoming, friendly and kind. The apartment was as described. The land was more beautiful than we had pictured. The neighborhood was quiet and a very nice and safe area. The location is perfectly located between Pisa, Lucca and Florence. We would recommend this home!
Abbiamo soggiornato durante il Lucca Comics insieme ai nostri due figli ed è un posto paradisiaco. Michela e Josef con la loro famiglia emanano calore e serenità.. Il posto ideale dove rilassarsi a due passi da paesi e città splendide della Toscana
I am Josef (35 years) and I live with my wife Michela (30 years) and our two children Leira (3 years) and Jua (1 year) at the farm. We studied both sociology but then decided to take care for the organic farm which was worked by Michelas parents for more than 30 years. Now we try to take forward the spirit of "Podere "Zaira" and to develop the place in a good manner.
