PalaiaPalaia, a small village situated in the “Colline Pisane”, in “Valdera”, province of Pisa,  is an agricultural zone situated on one of the highest ridges that divides the valley of Arno from the Valdera and attracts tourists all year round.

The village has a typically Medieval structure (with a citadel and linear location of houses around a central square), though its origins go back to the Etruscan period, as testified by recent archaeological findings.
The village is characterized by the purity of its country air and the varied beauty of the surrounding landscape with many fine views. On foot, by bicycle or horseback one can explore unspoilt woods and ancient hill villages set among the typical Tuscan countryside.
The region is steeped in history and the arts. Here one can try the delicious local cuisine, sample the superb wine, olive oil, white truffle and traditional Tuscan produce.

Palaia lies close to the main Tuscan cities of art: Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, San Miniato, all easily accessible. Pontedera is close by (15 minutes by car) with its important network of roads (S.G.C. Fi-Pi-Li/dual carriageway) and railway station.

Also easily accessible: two important international airports (Pisa and Florence), health spas (Casciana Terme and San Giuliano Terme) and the seaside, (Tirrenica , Maremma and Versilia coast).

This is the ideal location for a pleasant and relaxing holiday, one to come back to year after year.
