About This Listing
An architect designed, beautifully restored and tastefully decorated 15th century stone built wharf building overlooking the majestic Arno River. Located on the second floor in the heart of the ancient historical centre of Pisa.
This magnificent 120m2 apartment has original wooden beams, terracotta tiled flooring ( cool in the summer and cosy in the winter) and furnished to a very high and funky standard. The ceilings are approximately 4 metres high and this lends a real elegance and grandeur to the space. The dining room and kitchen overlook the river and the famous Ponte di Mezzo where the annual Giocco del Ponte takes place each June during the Pisa festival as well as the huge firework display which takes place on the day of San Ranieri, the 3rd Saturday in June. The lounge is in the middle of the apartment and has a wonderful fireplace and parquet flooring. At the back of the apartment are the two bedrooms each with a view into the historical centre of the city. One bedroom is a double and the other has two single beds. The bathroom is great, like a 5 star hotel.
Just a few steps from the apartment are a wealth of bars, restaurants, shops and art galleries. The world famous Leaning Tower is just a 10 minute walk away. Being so central, the apartment is perfectly located for the train station and for a quick 15 minute taxi ride to the airport.
Also: should you be interested, I can organise some great sporting activities for you ( I am a keen mountaineer, sailer and surfer ) ; eg - kayak, rafting, catamaran, wind surf and skiing. Just let me know. Sandro

This apartment is in an ideal place for exploring Pisa and beyond. It's close to the tower, the local shops, and the train station is only 10 minutes walk away. We loved this apartment! It has character and space in abundance. High ceilings, cosy corners, it was exactly right for our family of 4. Alessandro's wife met us to let us in on arrival and introduced us to the warm, homely 2nd floor apartment. It feels like someone's home with personal photos and belongings but, for us, this added to its charm.
Alessandro came to welcome us and showed us around, his big apartment. It is really well located, and the view from the front windows is awesome, especially at sunrise and sunset. It is very comfortable, cosy and quiet. All the essentials were available on arrival, even great coffee!
Our messages exchanges were easy, friendly and efficient. Alessandro checked via email if everything was fine during our stay and even help us to book a taxi for our super early departure. Nice.
Our 1st time with Airbnb! Great 1st experience. Great location, close to the attractions and restaurants. A little bit difficult to park though. Beware of restrictrions to park nearby. The Supermarket was little bit far, but the shops are very close :)
Very wellcoming and spacious house. Great view just like the photos in the site. The stairs are not easy to climb with luggage but it pays when you get there. They even had flowers waiting for us...
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pisa. Perfect location and the flat was just as described. Being December we would have enjoyed a bit more heat, but that probably could have been arranged if we had asked. Two thoughts: the kitchen could be a bit better equipped. It looks as if people have abused the pots and pans etc. and the lovely big shower needs some attention. The shower head is clogged,I suspect, with limescale but was still adequate. It would have been even better if repaired. These are minor quibbles. It was clean and the bedrooms are quiet and it suited us. Thank you to Alessandro and family.
This place was lovely -- the best part of our trip to Italy. Everything was well-appointed and pleasant. It was cozily warm in the winter, the bed was comfortable, and having breakfast looking out over the river was memorable. Alessandro was additionally very helpful when our luggage was delayed -- we would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in Pisa.
This place is perfect! Alessandro (and his friend who showed the flat) are very friendly.
L'appartement est encore plus spacieux qu'il n'apparaît sur les photos et allie le confort moderne et le cachet de l'ancien.
Noue étions à proximité de tout et avons passé un très bon séjour.
