About the neighbourhood
The Medieval town of Palaia sits high on a ridge with mesmerising panoramic views over the Valdera. Located in the province of Pisa the town is ideally located between the cities of Pisa, Lucca and Florence as well as being close to the wine region of Terriciola.

The town itself is charming and compact with everything you need such as 2 bars, a handful of restaurants, 3 grocery stores, a pharmacy, and bank.
The surrounding area is mainly agricultural land, a mix of rolling hills topped with vines and olive trees, and in the woods and forests the precious white truffle is hunted.
