Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 13
The villa is quite modern and is set on 3 levels. The villa features visible stone walls both on the outside and the inside of the villa (stone arches). It is surrounded by a well maintained garden comprising palm trees, olives and cypress trees as well as 2 lovely outdoor dining areas, one fully in the sun and the other in the shade, in the form of a loggia next to the kitchen. An outside staircase leads to the terrace located next to the master bedroom.
The garden to the back of the villa looks on to the gently climbing hill and on to the terrace where the swimming pool is located - being located slightly higher up, guests can enjoy a lovely view looking down on the surrounding countryside and the sea in the distance. There is also a gazebo with a further dining area and next door there is a dependence, which can be used to get changed and showered in. There is also a lovely stone path which leads down from the garden to the double garage.
Just 4 km away you will find the lovely sandy beach with the usual facilities, which is perfect for children.

The dining room is separated off from the rest of the area by a beautiful stone arch. The spacious kitchen is practical and very well equipped and opens into a covered loggia – perfect for lunches “al fresco”.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Italy with stunning scenery, outstanding food and beautiful cities full of art, history and architecture and for that reason many Tuscan towns have become UNESCO protected sites: the main square in Florence, Siena, the Piazza dei Miracoli at Pisa, San Gimignano, the historical centre of Pienza and also the Val d'Orcia. Tuscany is also considered the birthplace of the Renaissance and is also the birthplace of many famous Italian artists, painters, sculptors, musicians such Dante Alighieri ("the father of the Italian language"), Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and Botticelli and that’s to name just a few.
The gently rolling Tuscan hills are lined with cypress trees and bathed in vineyards and olive groves which leave everyone who comes here with very special memories indeed. Tuscany has so many attractions and towns worth visiting that you would need to spend months to really appreciate everything there is to see and do here.
We recommend guests to visit Pisa with its leaning tower, Livorno and the Maremma coast for its spectacular beaches and landscape, Siena with its Piazza del Campo, Volterra and San Gimignano, smaller medieval villages but with lots of character and famous for its original medieval towers, Certaldo, the birthplace of Boccaccio and also Montecatini with its renowned spa offering curative waters and beauty treatments.
As you can see Tuscany has so much to offer no matter what your likes, hobbies and interest. For those who enjoy walking, biking and horse riding the options are endless. Other attractions include skiing at the Abetone ski resort which is just an hour and a half away from Florence, and the widely acclaimed Tyrrhenean beaches (between Viareggio, Pisa, Livorno and Grossetto) just over an hour away.
Last but not least is the Chianti. Nestled between the towns of Siena and Florence the Chianti region has become famous on an international level for its stunning hilly landscape covered in vineyards, cypress trees, hilltop hamlets and winding roads, and breathtaking vistas. A visit to Chianti gives access to an endless source to culture, architecture, scenery and many other attractions. Chianti is also internationally well known for its wine, Il Chianti Classico, olive oil and exceptional cuisine. Visiting the Chianti is a must for anyone coming to Italy! When in the Chianti land stop at Greve in Chianti, buy your local wine and stop off for a pannini at “Da Emilio” – the best sandwich/delicatessen store ever known to exist. When at Panzano in Chianti visit the famous macellaio – butcher “Dario Cecchini”. He also has a restaurant open for lunch and dinner (www.dariocecchini.com). Great steaks, meat anything you want. The meat he uses comes from animals specifically raised for him alone).
Furthermore, just 40 minutes from Florence you will find the Mall shopping outlet http://www.themall.it/en/ - a gallery of the world’s most exclusive designers available at bargain prices offering customers a very unique shopping experience.
Marina di Carrara
The villa is located about 4 km from the sea in the residential quarter called Dervillé at Marina di Carrara Avenza, which is really close to the main town full of cafe bars, restaurants, shops and every other service you may need during your stay. Having said that, the area is very green and panoramic at just 50 metres above sea level. The coast along Versilia has some very famous beaches and nightlife, golf courses.
Versilia, Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio, Lido di Camaiore are only about 20 Km south from Marina di Carrara, Pisa (and Pisa’s International Airport) are about 60 Km away, Florence (Florence’s International Airport) and the Chianti region are about120 - 150 Km away.
