Villa di Mezzo 8

Villa for 8 with pool and A/C on Tuscan Coast

Nice little touches

  • The gated and fenced garden is great for family holidays - and the pool is no more than 1.40 metres deep
  • Being so close to Pisa airport makes this villa perfect for a short break

Close to the Tuscan coast, near Livorno and Pisa yet private and secluded, Villa di Mezzo is a perfect base for a family holiday. The balance between privacy and ease of exploration can be difficult, but this home manages it well.

The villa is a carefully converted old farmhouse, now an elegant home with beds for 8 in 4 bedrooms.

Sheltered in a dell, surrounded by pine and evergreen oaks down a short drive, it feels detached from the worries of the world. With air-conditioning, wifi throughout, an excellent barbecue and a cooling swimming pool, this is a house one could happily rarely leave - ideal for a work-cation for those that need a change of scene.

Should you want to explore Tuscany the house is also ideally placed, with Pisa and Lucca nearby, Florence easily reached by car or train, and magical hill-towns close by. The coast is also under twenty minutes away, with long sandy beaches and hidden coves.

Entirely fenced, it is a safe and private haven for the family, overlooked by no other properties and with plenty of space for the children to run around.

Accommodation

Approached from the private driveway, the front door opens onto the stairway. To the left is a comfortable living room, where three sofas face a large fireplace and a hallway off the living area leads to a ground floor shower room. To the right of the stairs there is a well-equipped kitchen adjacent to a dining room with French doors onto the outdoor furnished terrace. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, 2 twin rooms and a bathroom with a romantic claw-footed tub. One of the twin rooms is normally left with a single bed, but an armchair can be prepared as an additional single bed on request, which makes this an ideal room for children.

The covered loggia with a dining table is flanked by a patio with a barbecue and outside armchairs – the perfect spot for relaxing in the evening after a good meal and looking onto the swimming pool which sits slightly lower in the garden.

“ Relaxing week at Villa di Mezzo ”

We found the villa spacious and well-appointed in a lovely garden area. The pool was ideal for our party from a 1 year old to adults. There are plenty of places to sit from full sun to shade and a good choice of outdoor furniture. It is so peaceful and private that we found it very relaxing; in fact we had most of our meals there on the covered terrace which is a great space.

We found the village shop handy and very friendly and the larger supermercato is a short drive away with everything we needed - we loved the spremuta machine!

The villa is convenient for Pisa Airport and Livorno is a nice day out, including an Aquarium which is great fun for children. We would definitely consider staying here again.

“ ...the best Villa I have ever stayed in ”

This is without doubt the best Villa I have ever stayed in in all my years travelling to Tuscany through Invitation to. From the size to the furnishings, layout, kitchen and ambience. Down a track surrounded by trees the seclusion is excellent. It is a little slice of heaven. The personal touches inside the Villa no doubt collected over the years by the owner gives the villa a homely touch with many interesting things to look at (Check out the downstairs bathroom to learn a bit about the owner!) even that piqued our interest 😊. The pool is an oasis in the garden with shaded areas to escape from the midday sun (parasols not necessary!) During our time there we didn’t once eat inside - the arched covered outdoor table will accommodate all your needs with a handy barbecue for alfresco dining adding to the delight.

We arrived to a welcome hamper from the owner with delights including the usual authentic Italian delights, local honey, Jam and of course a lovely local Red Wine with Prosecco chilling already in the fridge. Sonia - with limited English (better than my Italian) showed us around the place but we are experts on Tuscan Villas. Everywhere was of course safe (Covid) and immaculately clean. With fresh sheets after the first 5 days it was a home from home.

If you want somewhere close to the Airport at Pisa this is the perfect place. With the coast also near a day at the beach is highly recommended. There is good information in the Villa on local shopping, eating and touristic stuff with personal recommendations included.

All in all, considering the times we are in this is the perfect retreat to get away from it all. The Villa is so special you wouldn’t actually need to leave it as long as you had enough food and drink in stock! We certainly didn’t want to leave.

“ ...struck by the calm serenity of the place ”

I first visited this house in September 2019 and I was struck by the calm serenity of the place, surrounded by a Mediterranean forest, within its own fenced grounds. It feels like a real retreat from the world, yet Pisa, Livorno, Florence and Lucca are all close by - and the coast is at less than 20 minutes drive too. The house itself is elegantly decorated - the owners are diplomats and there are clues to their postings around the world in the decor. Since then we've had guests staying here for long "workcations" as well as shorter week-long stays for family get-togethers - it works well for either, with easy access to Pisa Airport, fast wifi and air-conditioning throughout. In May 2021 I pass by again mainly to check how long the walk is into the village, and whether the cafe/bar was still open. It's a beautiful house and I can highly recommend it.

Around Villa di Mezzo

One of the great conveniences of Villa di Mezzo is how close it is to Pisa, making it easy to reach and also putting many of Tuscany's cities within easy reach by train as well as by car.

After you land it is less than 30 minutes drive to get to the villa.

Livorno is close by, a very interesting and largely undervalued Mediterranean port, with some stunning fortifications and excellent fish markets.

Pisa and its tower are close, as are the encircling walls of Lucca and all the treasures they embrace. From Pisa Central station you can reach Florence's central station of Santa Maria Novella in under an hour, or head north to La Spezia and the Cinque Terre, also reachable by train in under an hour.

Beautiful beaches are within 20 minutes drive, including the National Park beaches of Migliarino.

Live Opera can often be found at Lago Massaciuccoli, once home to Puccini. Or head south-east to Lajatico, home to Andrea Bocelli's "Teatro del Silenzio", both around 45 minutes drive away.
