The Tuscany region
Tuscany (ital. Toscana) is bordered on the west by the long sandy beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is sheltered to the north and east by the Apennine Mountains and the Apuan Alps. The region thus defined is one of great fertility, with the wines of the Chianti region and the superb olive oil of the area known to anyone who appreciates good food and wine.
The landscapes of Tuscany are perhaps more varied than in any other region of Italy, varying from the ancient marble quarries of the Apuan Alps to the sand dunes of the Tyrrhenian Coast, but it is the land between, in particular the Chianti district, that most readily comes to mind when we talk of Tuscany. Hilltop towns and villages dating back to Etruscan times are surrounded by vineyards where the vines form geometrically precise rows, olive groves alternate with undulating fields of wheat and sunflowers, slashed in spring by the vibrant red of poppies, and over all a sky of ineffable blue - this is a landscape that has changed very little since the Middle Ages.
No wonder that Tuscany today is so beloved of visitors who come for the exquisitely balanced attractions of culture and relaxation, great food and wine and scenery of entrancing beauty.
Certaldo, where the property is located, is a pretty medieval town built almost entirely of red brick. It can be reached by cable-car from the more modern town of the same name built below it.
