The Tuscany region
Tuscany's tranquility and harmony are said to have stirred many artistic masters' creativity. The ancient walled towns, long lines of towering cypress trees, vineyards, fortified battlements and hilltop retreats have barely changed in over 400 years.
It is a short trip to the beautiful Tyrrhenian coast with the seaside resorts Castiglioncello and Querrcianella. The main motorway which runs between Pisa and Florence is only ten minutes drive from Alica.
There are many local farms where they are delighted for you to taste and buy their own local wine and olive oil.
The apartment is situated in Castello di Alica which was originally a monastery of Carthusian monks. The village was first mentioned in a document in 980 when it was under the control of the Bishop of Lucca.
Alica is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, consisting of hilly landscapes with its pretty hilltop towns. Within a 25 km radius you can find Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano, San Miniato and Livorno, while the famous spas of Montecatini and Casciana Terme are also near.
For opera lovers, the apartment is only twenty minutes from Lajatico, the home of Andrea Bocelli and his wonderful concert in July. Also the Puccini festival in Torre del Lago held in the summer months is within easy reach.
The well known golf course at Castelfalfi is only twenty minutes drive away.
