Mara Turini purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Mara Turini chose Terricciola
We love Morrona because it's a really peaceful place to stay providing fantastic facilities of the area. It gives access to the most important cities such as Pisa, Florence, Siena, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano and, furthermore, it is at only 40 km from the seacoast. The area is easily accessible since Pisa airport is very close and it can be reached in half hours by car.

Now, in our 9th successful year, we are really satisfied and our guests enthusiast! Our guests appreciate and enjoy the outside dining relaxing in their private terrace. During the week we are pleased to offer you biological fruits and vegetables of our production (strawberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, figs, prune and grapes). At the guests arrival we are happy to offer you some typical tuscan dishes. We provide towels and linen so you can travel light.

A lovely spot for a peaceful getaway
We had just under a week in which we wanted a mixture of pool side relaxing and short drives to explore villages and beaches and this was pretty perfect for that. The surroundings to the property are beautiful, lush green olive groves and fruit orchards. The pool is a lovely size, well maintained and a great temperature for the hot summer days. The apartment we were given was slightly different to the advertised generic pictures on the site but this didn't bother us too much as we spent most of our time outside anyway and it wasn't that different, just the view was missing which was a shame. The beds were very comfortable. There were some basics in the kitchen but we had to buy oil so best to check what's there with the hosts before doing a shop on your way. Lots of pans etc so cooking was easy and Franco gifted us a couple of home made bottles of wine which was very kind of them.
There are lots of near by villages within 1.5 hrs, including our favourites, San Gimignano and Volterra as well as half hour from Pisa (and it's airport).
The hosts were very friendly and helpful and always keen to give advice if you need it.
Overall, a positive stay in a very beautiful location. :)
A beautiful part of Italy
Myself and my family stayed in Alba apartment and we loved the apartment, the farmhouse, the country side and everthing about the area. The owners Mara and Franco were so good to us , cooking us a lovely tasty pasta dish on arrival a together with their own red wine. I would highly recomend this location for anyone who wants to enjoy the real Tuscany experiance , Seamus Casserly Ireland
Just returned from a fabulous 4 night stay at this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse. Can't fault the booking process, communication with owners or house in any way. Set on a quiet street but only 30 min drive from Pisa airport it had the views, comforts and facilities we wanted. Stayed with a group of 4 girls in Alba which was one of the larger ground floor apartments. We had been left a delicious lunch and bottle of local wine for our arrival which was most welcome. Francesco very friendly and helpful. The three resident cats were also lovely! We didn't eat out much as preferred to make the most of the delicious food and wine found locally so spent a lot of our time on our terrace or by the pool.
Would recommend having a car as we would have been a bit stuck without this. There are local shops but the supermarket is approx 10 mins drive away.
Beautiful farmhouse set in the most wonderful countryside.
We had a wonderfully relaxing stay. This apartment is off the beaten track and you get the chance to experience the real Italy. The local people were incredibly friendly as were our hosts Mara and Franco. Perfectly locted for trips to Pisa, Lucca and Florence. We couldn't have asked for more.
What a tremendous experience for us. Franco and Mara were not only fabulous hosts but wonderful peop
The property is great relaxing and close to many towns and cities of significance. The hosts Franco and Mara were gracious accommodating helpful and friendly super people. I highly recommend this property and it's owners.
