The property, which has been included in the list of the most important buildings by the Italian Minister of Culture, is an ideal base to visit the main art cities in Tuscany and to explore the beautiful Tuscan countryside with its lush green hills and its picturesque medieval towns. The sea is only 20 minute driving.

A large, gorgeous apartment is provided for guests on the first floor of the villa.

Pisa is wellknown for its leaning tower and the amazing Piazza dei Miracoli, which don't need any further description. But there are many other monuments and places which are well worth seeing while walking through the city centre, after having a drink in a stylish café or tasting a real Italian homemade ice cream. Not far from Pisa visit Calci, a nice old town in the country with its beautiful Certosa, S. Miniato (a medieval town with landscapes on Arno valley and countryside), S. Piero a Grado (basilica).In June a festival is held in Pisa, called "Giugno Pisano" with music, traditional games, exhibitions. On June 16th at night "Luminaria di S.
