Description

***** Tuscan cooking experience included ******

A beautifully restored spacious Tuscan villa perched on a hilltop, with views over the charming village of Lari, close to Pisa. This lovely four bedroom villa, in the heart of Tuscany, has a secluded rustic swimming pool, a tennis court, a romantic gazebo seating eight with breathtaking panoramic views - where you can watch glorious sunsets with a glass of Prosecco - barbecues, all on large terraced grounds with olive trees, surrounded by a small forest.

A 400-meter gravel road is the approach to the entrance with an electric gate. A Siena-red road lined with Cyprus trees leads to the house sitting on about 2 hectares of landscaped undulating land.

You will love this beautiful historic 130-year-old 2 level Tuscan villa/farmhouse of 250 sq. meters. The ground floor is an open space with original arches and high ceilings: a large living room with antique pieces mixed with contemporary furnishings, a den with a flat screen

You will love this beautiful historic 130-year-old 2 level Tuscan villa/farmhouse of 250 sq. meters. The ground floor is an open space with original arches and high ceilings: a large living room with antique pieces mixed with contemporary furnishings, a den with a flat screen TV and a fireplace, a dining room seating eight, a large kitchen with top appliances including dishwasher, a walk-in pantry and a stunning bathroom with a marble sink.

Original stone stairs lead upstairs to four bedrooms: a large master bedroom with a queen size bed, a second bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and queen size bed. You have a choice of two single beds or one double in the third bedroom. The fourth bedroom has a double bed and a terrace with a view of the medieval Lari castle. The third bathroom has gorgeous blue hand-made tiles is just outside the bedrooms. The house has satellite TV and WiFi internet in all rooms. The small external laundry room has a high-end washer and dryer.

The patio in front is a great place for evening drinks under the large umbrella and around the corner, the garden, has a large oak-wood table with bench style seating for twelve with a barbecue nearby. Behind the house is a cute pond with space for croquet and badminton (equipment provided) and higher up, on top, the gazebo with breathtaking panoramic views. The uniquely positioned secluded swimming pool is also on top and a rustic pool house nearby with kitchen, fridge, coffee maker and a second barbecue at the edge of a small forest, which is part of the property. Once you are up there, you will just want to stay.

Below the house is the private tennis court. Racquets and balls are provided.

Centrally located in Tuscany, it is close to all amenities, 20 minutes from Pisa airport, 45 minutes from Florence, 30 minutes from Lucca and 40 minutes from the beaches of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio.

Car hire is recommended for this villa.

***** FOOD AND WINE EXPERIENCE *****

When my friends come to visit, one of the first things they look for, is the local food and wine. I'd like to treat my guests like my friends, and thought a food and wine day might be fun. If you're interested, I will take you to some of the unique places around here - it's included in the rental - all it will cost you is what you buy.

We would leave in the morning to go food shopping in Livorno, about a 45 minute drive. One of the most historical and most beautiful covered markets in Europe is the Livorno Central Market - Mercato Centrale di Livorno. It is located in a large, 18th-century, art nouveau-style building next to the Royal Canal. Fresh fish, meat and poultry, fruit, vegetables and bread - just about everything and anything on a shopping list can be found there. The main pavilion houses 34 shops and 230 stalls presenting a mind-boggling variety of foodstuffs.Buy whatever takes your fancy.

In the afternoon we would visit Fromaggi della Famiglia Busti, the best cheese maker in the region. Their cheeses are astonishing. They also have a terrific restaurant, where we could have lunch. Later, I would take you to visit the famous La Pasta dei Martelli in Lari. Only members of the family work in the pasta factory, keeping up the tradition of making pasta. Finally, I suggest visiting the wine maker Villa Saletta. They have rekindled historic winemaking tradition with Tuscan red wines and Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sangiovese.

Back at the house late afternoon, we would start preparing dinner. Maybe I can even get one of the nonnas from Lari to come and show us how to prepare some of her special home-made dishes. Basically, I want the whole day to be fun and enjoyable to give you, my guests, a different Tuscan experience.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The perfect place if you are looking for peace and quiet - yet be centrally located close to all amenities. Lari is about 45 minutes from Florence by car or train. There are wineries, restaurants, too much to list. Lucca is 30 minutes. Volterra is about 30 minutes. Cinque Terra is about an hour as well as Portofino in the Italian riviera. San Gimignano about an hour. Sieanna, the wine region of Bolgheri not far. The sea and beaches about 20 kms.

Casciana Terme Lari

In summer the Lucca music festival is a must. Also the Pistoia blues festival. The marble caves of Carrara are wonderful to see. Wine tastings, typical Tuscan food in nearby restaurants. A boat trip to Elba is well worth it. Cinque Terra is also a must. The leaning tower of Pisa is wonderful. The Uffizi gallery in Florence is a must. The medieval village of Lari with its castle is 2 kms.

“Perfect family holiday”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2015

We stayed at the Tuscan villa in September 2015 for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The house is very private and offers every comfort you may need. The downstairs offers a lovely kitchen, dining area and living room which gave us (8 adults and 3 small children) plenty of space for socialising. The garden is magnificent as well with a private pool (accessible only via a rather steep walkway though) and a private tennis court. We could not have asked for more. The four double bedrooms were perfect for our needs - although 3 of the 4 beds were pull-out couches which were admittedly not the most comfortable in the world. Peter and Alexandra, the lovely caretakers of the property, welcomed us upon arrival and were always available to answer any questions we had. You will need a car to stay at this property given it's private location. The nearest restaurants and shops are in Lari, a short drive away. Overall, we had a wonderful time there and would recommend it to anyone.
