About this listing
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.
We had a great 10 day stay at Josef and Michelas little farm. Everything was exactly as the pictures suggested maybe even more beautiful and for our one year old son there was a lot to discover. Josef and Michela were very friendly, helpful with information and generous with theor produce and belongings so we felt right at home.
Très bel endroit et accueil très agréable de Josef. On ne vient pas là par hasard! La maison de Josef et l'appartement sont au milieu des oliviers, sur les hauteurs. La vue est donc superbe de la terrasse et l'environnement très agréable. Josef a tout fait pour nous aider, nous conseiller, c'était un séjour très agréable et reposant.
Nous recommandons vivement! Merci encore!
Josef and his wife were excellent hosts. The apartment was exactly as described and was very clean and comfortable . Josefs property could not have been better and the location was perfect would definitely recommend this property
Amazing and peaceful place with a breathtaking view and a lovely terasse!
Definately will come back as our stay in Josef and Michela's house was the best experience of our long Italian road trip.
Thank you once again!
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.
About the Host, Josef
I am Josef (35 years) and I live with my wife Michela (30 years) and our two children Leira (4 years) and Jua (1 year) at the farm. We studied both sociology but then we 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.
