Located in the stunning Tuscan countryside, Palai is positioned on one of the highest ridges dividing the valley of Arno from the Valdera. Situated in the Province of Pisa, it is perfectly well placed to explore illustrious Tuscan gems: Pisa, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano and Florence, as well as the lush landscapes surrounding it. Dating back to Etruscan times, the village itself is typically medieval with a lovely piazza, and is charming to wander round. In the restaurants be sure to try the local olive oil and white truffles – delicacies of the region. Surrounded by verdant countryside, there are ample opportunities to explore the area, whether by bike, car or on foot. If you’re a fan of the cherry, visit on the last Sunday in May or the first Sunday in June for the fantastic cherry festival – a sumptuous delight.
