Campolungo is the perfect home from home in a traditional Tuscan hilltop farmhouse. A perfect property for a family gathering or a group of friends looking to spend quality time together in a hilltop retreat.
The property offers the perfect opportunity to come together as a group but also offers its guests a unique opportunity for private space as the villa has been divided into three separate apartments each with its own entrance, bathroom and kitchen space. During our high season the whole villa must be booked as one property however in out middle to low seasons it is possible to book a smaller portion of the villa.
Campolungo has been sympathetically restored and offers peace and tranquility within a beautiful landscape of olive groves and pine covered hills.
The villa is situated in the hills above the pretty Medieval village of Vicopisano close to Pisa, Lucca and Florence and offers the perfect base for exploring Tuscany.
Campolungo is full of character and is typical of a countryside Tuscan property and retains original features such as beamed ceilings, an open fireplace and terracotta tiled pavements.
This is the ideal place to escape from the stresses of modern life and in addition it is the perfect sanctuary for nature lovers. Here you will hear nothing more than the sound of the birds and for those who enjoy the countryside you will discover many hidden lanes and trails which wind down to a Medieval village.
