Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Family vacation in a historical and quiet town with many choices for trips
We stayed in La Rocca apartments during summer as a family with 3 children. Everything that was as written on the website, exactly the way it was promissed: really fair dealing, nice owners, two bedrooms, 1 extra room for the 3rd child and a livingroom with kitchen with all instruments needed. We used bicycles that were available, saw a local musical bands, tasted local food and wines. It was a beatiful small town, quiet with not too many tourists. We appreciated all the little things at the apartment that were arranged with a sense of beauty. We had everything at hand and Donatella Enrico was close to help us if we needed something. We really enjoyed the time in La Rocca and would like to come there again. Thank you.

Great apartment and close to things to see in Tuscany
We have had a fantastic time in the Apartment La Rocca in Palaia. One have the opportunity to see the everyday life in a Tuscan village. Palaia also have a number of restaurants. We visited Antica Pharmacia which had extraordinary fine dining with local ingredients and local wines cooked and served with perfection. La Chica served excellent coffee and sweet breed in the morning. When we arrived the apartment was excellent prepared by Donatella with a great fruit plate, a good night drink and also some marvellous cookies. We was also provided pasta with sauce which was great since we arrived late and did not have any food with us to eat that evening. Enrico introduced all features in the apartment very good. I also lent a bike which is provided by Enrico and made a great bike ride in the morning just when the fog left the area in the morning. There are many nice hills to climb so you get good exercise. It was also close to drive to many nice sites in Tuscany such as Firenze, Pisa etc. 10 great days in Palaia. Thanks Enrico and Donatella.

Estancia con encanto
Un apartamento muy acogedor, confortable y decorado con encanto! Uno se siente como en casa. Recibimiento muy cálido por parte de los propietarios Enrico y Donatella. Donatella te prepara una tarta de manzana y un vasito de licor de la zona. El apartamento esta en Palaia, un pueblo pequeño típico de Toscana, agradable y tranquilo. Una estancia muy agradable, que permite relajarte y disfrutar de la Toscana.

holiday apartment with a very personal touch
Very nice Holiday Apartment in the town of Pallaia, Tuscany. With two exellent bedrooms and an extra room with bunkbeds for two children, a bathroom with all the Basics and a cosy kitchen/livingroom. The Apartment has been given a very personal touch by Enrico Rossi and his wife Donatella, which for us made it feel like a home, rather than your normal Holiday Apartment. The Basic grocery buys were within walking distance and the Rossi´ had printed Roadmaps of there wereabouts in Pallaia. Palaia is situated between Pisa, Florenz and Siena which was ideal for us. We had most things within an hours drive and we could do a couple of wineyards on the way back. If you are planning a stay in Tuscany, and want to stay in a small (4000 People) town without to many tourists, I can only recommend a stay with Enrico and Donatella.

Enrico und seine Frau Donatella sind super nett, sprechen aber kaum Fremdsprachen. Die Verständigung klappte aber mit
Enrico und seine Frau Donatella sind super nett, sprechen aber kaum Fremdsprachen. Die Verständigung klappte aber mit "Italodenglisch" dennoch ganz gut. Das Appartment ist ruhig gelegen, sehr komfortabel und ausgesprochen stilvoll mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Das Badezimmer ist eine kleine Wellnessoase, was wir aufgrund der widrigen Wetterbedingungen Anfang März besonders zu schätzen wußten. In jedem Raum bedindet sich eine Klimaanlage, die auch als Heizung gut funktioniert (Zusatzkosten: 1€/Std. aber max. 10€/Tag). Es gibt einen PC, der auch für das Internet genutzt werden kann, ebenso ein kostenloser W-Lan Zugang. Allerdings ist die Verbindung -obwohl die schnellste in Palaia verfügbare- ziemlich langsam. Das Satelliten-TV bietet jede Menge Sender, darunter vier deutschsprachige (ARD,ZDF,RTL,RTL2). Die Lage des Appartments ist in der Gegend optimal. Fast alle gängigen Ziele in der nördlichen Toscana sind in weniger als einer Stunde mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Ein absoluter Toptipp!

Map
About the neighbourhood
The inspiring, evocative landscape of Palaia reveals a place that has a rich, historical and agricultural heritage: at any corner the tourists can feel the essence of rustic life while the timeless atmosphere of the village will bring them back to time. Here, tourists can go for long walks in the countryside, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypresses or they can also enjoy the scenic routes dotted with isolated farms, farmhouses and villas on foot, on horseback or by bicycle. They also enjoy the wild woods abounding with mushrooms, truffles and game; the beautiful gullies of Toiano, the carbon dioxide and the sulphurous anhydride emissions of Chiecinella and many others. Predominately agricultural, the gently rolling hills are full of olive groves and vineyards. For this reason Palaia has a particular production of wines of excellent quality, like Chianti of the Pisan Hills, olive oil and many others genuine products. In the last few years, farm holidays of high level and other holiday resorts have spread all over the territory together with restaurants, recreational facilities and other recreational establishments. That's the reason why we can assure an unforgettable holiday to tourists from both Italy and the rest of Europe. During the spring and the summer season, the main attractions of Palaia are: Sunday opening of the most important Churches: Pieve di S. Martino a Palaia, Pieve di San Gervasio, Chiesa di Sant'Andrea a Palaia, Chiesa SS: Annunziata a Montefoscoli Museum of Rural Works and Customs, Montefoscoli Museum of Rural and Farming Life, San Gervasio Permanent Opening of the Natural Park of Toiano with the suggestive view of the Gullies. EVENTS: Every Sunday, from June to September, from 16,00 to 20,00 : STREET MARKET OF FRUIT AND TYPICAL PRODUCTS OF THE PISAN HILLS.
