House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
In May 2006 we realized our dream and bought a wonderful rustic double house in the northern Tuscany.
The house is located on a sunny hillside in a small medieval village called Lanciole behind Pescia and Montecatini, in between Florence and Pisa. The former Italian owner who renovated the whole house in a tasteful romantic style named the house “The Lance Castle”. The house, which is built together with other houses in the historical medivial center of the village, consists of 200m2 tuscan style holiday house with 2 sunny terraces and private garden and pool
The holiday house is ideal for the large family, two families or two generations. The garden of the house has a private swimming pool and BBQ.
From one of the terraces you enter a nice, big kitchen with an open fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped gas stove, oven, microwave, fridge with a small freezer, electric water boiler and toaster.
Apart from that, the house has 4 bedrooms, a living room with TV, big bathroom with a tub, small bathroom with a tub as well as an extra small toilet which has a charming old door through which tall people will have to duck. There is a washingmachine in the small toilet.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is very special to us and it is not without reason that the area is called the “Italian culture's cradle” and “Italy's paradise”. It is a region in central Italy with stunning scenery with pine- and cypress avenues, sunflower fields, vineyards, olive groves and medieval villages surrounded by old walls.
You will find a region full of experiences, art, culture and people with tongue in cheek. You will experience an exciting dining, world class wine, museums displaying irreplaceable art, colorful festivals, street markets, exclusive shopping and world class soccer games from the Italian league A.
Look forward to experiencing the art cities Florence, Siena, Pisa and San Gimignano right nearby.
The medieval village Lanciole is very centrally situated from all the popular excursion spots in the northern Tuscany. It only takes 45 min to drive to the nearest beach, 25 min to Montecatini Terme, 60 min to Pisa, 35 min to Lucca, 60 min to Florence, 90 min to Sienna and 50 to the skiing area Abetone. Tennis and shopping opportunities are located about 15-20 min away from the house by car. There is a golf course about 20 km away from the house.
During the summer, there is pony riding only 10 min away from the house in the direction of Abetone. Public buses stop in front of the house 4 to 5 times a day; however, we recommend that you explore the area by car. It is a good idea to bring your own GPS.
