Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 11
This splendid villa, which has recently been carefully and tastefully renovated, is located near the village of Palaia in the Pisa area. The villa, which blends in perfectly with the surrounding nature, is nestled on a hilltop that offers stunning views stretching from the hills to the sea which can be glimpsed in the distance on clear days. The property consists of the main house and a delightful annex near the swimming pool, around 60 meters from the house. The interior is beautifully furnished with all mod cons. The outdoor area includes several furnished areas for relaxing and eating “al fresco”. There is also a splendid 7 x 14 meter swimming pool offering breathtaking views. There is a large whirlpool bath that can be heated if necessary and barbecue by the side of the pool. During the renovation work an ancient Etruscan tomb dating back to the seventh century B.C. was discovered which it is possible to visit. Cookery, painting, music and Italian language classes can be organized on request. The most important art cities of Tuscany are within easy reach, in fact Florence is just 60 Km away, less than an hour by car. The Tuscan coastline and the cities of Pisa, Livorno and Lucca are 40 Km away. Also well worth visiting are Volterra and San Gimignano. The sea can be reached in about 30 minutes by car.

The Tuscany region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
