Villa di Mezzo 18

Collesalvetti, close to Pisa

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

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.

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


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.

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.
