Steps lead down to the pool area,surrounded by landscaped gardens,exotic banana palms and exotic plants.The main entrance opens into a vast open plan L shaped living area with black granite floors.Comfortable leather couches form a group with a further seating area that has a TV & DVD player. The dining area has a round marble table seating eight. Virtually two sides of the living area are glass windows with two sets of French doors that open out onto terraces suspended over the spectacular grounds far below. The Architect who designed the house intended that the maximum amount of natural light would flood into the living areas to maximise enjoyment of daylight hours.Strip blinds and window screens are fitted at two sides of the living area to take advantage of cool evening breezes. The classic kitchen has a small sunny terrace with an adjustable canopy. Steps lead down from the kitchen onto a large shady covered terrace area with table and chairs and brick built barbecue. We recommend a visit to the nearby fishing port of Viareggio where the boats land and sell their catch from the quayside - great for an informal gourmet barbcue!This house is particularly suitable for two families or groups of friends travelling together as the bedrooms are arranged as two suites on two floors, each opening out onto a terrace with its‘ own spectacular view. To keep the grounds and pool well groomed, the housekeepers/gardeners need regular access; they will be pleased to be of assistance if asked to do so,but will otherwise respect your privacy.ACCOMMODATION COMPRISES:Spacious modern, detached house built out over terraced hillside.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Pietrasanta which has Roman origins has been our special part of Italy since 1973. This charming town nestles at the foothills of the Apuan Alps only 3km from the golden beaches of Versilia and the famous Forte dei Marmi. Pietrasanta grew to importance during the 15th century, mainly due to its connection with marble (the nearby quarries in Carrara are still operating to this day). Only 30 minutes from Pisa airport. Year round destination. Pisa, Lucca, Florence and the Cinqueterre within easy reach.

Pietrasanta

Pietrasanta Italy, is one of Italy's best kept secrets. Loved by locals and Italians yet relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists. From revelling in the artistic treasures and architectural wonders of the old town square to enjoying a glass of full-bodied red beside a hillside of olive trees or soaking up the sun on the wide golden beaches of Versilia, Pietrasanta's kaleidoscope of pleasures will intoxicate your mind and enrich your soul any time of the year.Spend a weekend in Versilia or a lazy summer holiday in a Bridgewater villa rental between the mountains and the sea. This area of Italy is ideal for a long stay or short break and is the perfect destination for a city break any time of year.Charming and stylish, Pietarsanta is now the haunt of the internationally famous (Sir Paul Smith loves the Enotecca restaurant and so does Gina Lollobridgiga) Henry More, Bottero (the Columbian artist whose paunchy warrior guards the entrance to the village), Mitoraj have all spent time working here and exhibiting their works of art, but then, we knew it first! The town is abundant with authentic restaurants serving food to satisfy the most discerning of pallets and café life spills out on to the square. Both days and evenings can be idyllically passed away in this charming medieval town perhaps with a cappuccino or glass of local wine in your hand. Traffic is restricted in the narrow streets, allowing the artists to set up their easels in the street and show off their latest masterpieces. From nearby Forte dei Marmi it is possible to take boats daily trips to the Cinque Terre, Portofino, Elba Island, Capraia Island. Rennaisance Florence and Siena are only an hour away from Pietrasanta, Pisa with its famous leaning tower is 30 minutes drive, the ancient walled city of Lucca is 20 minutes by car, The marble Caves of Carrara are a short distance and Puccini's villa where he lived wrote his operas on Torre del Lago is only 20 minutes drive.
