Information

Directions

Pisa Airport is the nearest and easiest to use for the villas, and we recommend you hire a car. If you prefer not to drive, there is a good bus service from the airport to Lucca. We can let you know which taxi service to use from here or there are a few local trains to Ghivizzano. You will need a taxi from here. Detailed directions of how to reach the properties will be sent just before your stay.

Car Hire

Please note most hire cars are manual unless automatic is requested.

From Pisa Airport

Car hire companies are located in a separate terminal outside the airport, accessed by shuttle.

For competitive rates we recommend Europcar based at the US Army base, Camp Darby in Pisa (just 15 minute taxi ride from Pisa Airport). Rates are exempt from the 20% VAT due the agreement they have with the US Government. If you wish to use the company they MUST have at least one week’s notice.

Recommendations

We feel very privileged to have been the first visitors to Colletto and to have been blessed with such wonderful weather. We were a party of 14 which took some managing. We all totally loved the house and garden and the enchanting village of Coreglia. David Litt & friends (English)

We feel so fortunate to have found Colletto. It is everything we hoped it would be and more! The purpose of our vacation was to find a villa in the mountains with a serene and relaxing atmosphere. Colletto has surpassed our greatest expectations. The breathtaking scenery, the beautiful accommodation and extreme hospitality have made our trip very rewarding. Jerry, Brenda & family (American)

It’s like being invited to one’s home, not renting a villa. Lord Constantine

The setting of Colletto is remarkable. The owners commitment and diligence have produced a unique location for a holiday. Everything is just right. Jim Rawlinson (English)

One week was not enough, it’s been so relaxing and we will be back. The views are fantastic and I’ll always remember sitting on the balcony at night enjoying the silence and a glass of wine. The very warm welcome by the entire village made it even more special. Mark Foster, Therese Alehammer, Neil Willey (Olympic Swimmers)

The care, attention to detail and personal touches lavished upon Colletto have made a very special holiday. John Bolam (United Kingdom)

What an amazing place tucked up high in the mountains. Views that take your breath away. The house has been lovingly and tastefully restored. A wonderful place to relax and unwind. Jerry & Jenny
