Ideal for a stopover during your journey in Tuscany or for a relaxing holiday, the lovely and specious B&B "Giardino della Pieve" is located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside at the foot of the Monti Pisani, 10km away from the well known town of Pisa.
The house consists of 5 large and finely furnished double rooms (25 to 35 sq meters) with a private bathroom with bath or shower. It is possible to have a family room by booking the room “roseto” and the little twin bedroom next to it: a perfect solution for a family composed of four people. In the B&B there are a large breakfast room, a reception desk and a relaxation area with books and a computer at the guests' disposal, not to mention the large garden where you can have breakfast while enjoying the fresh air of the Tuscan countryside. The garden is very near to the Pieve dei Santi Ippolito e San Casciano, a beautiful 11/12th-century church: as a matter of fact, the Giardino della Pieve is said to have been the prior's house.
The surroundings are full of art and history: you can visit the interesting Natural History Museum of Calci and the Certosa (the monastery), the beautiful village of Vicopisano, Florence (45 min away), Lucca (25 min), Livorno (25 min), Siena (1h30), the Thermal Center of San Giuliano, many historical monuments and of course Pisa and its famous tower (10 min).

From the B&B you can easily go to the airport of Pisa (10 min) and to the railway station of Navacchio, the Politeama theater, the Technological Pole and the Hospital of Cisanello; besides, you can easily reach the seaside (25 min) as well as many shopping centers, banks, restaurants and much more.
