Description

Casa del Pretorio is a charming traditional Tuscan house nestled on a hillside in the heart of the Medieval village of Vicopisano.

The house is the perfect location for those looking for a typically Tuscan ambiance, an ideal base for exploring Tuscany or a peaceful retreat for families and friends.

Situated down a cobbled lane under the watchful eye of a Medieval Palace and Ancient Tower, the house dates back to the 1800s and has lovely views over the Medieval village and surrounding hills.

Casa del Pretorio's unique position nestled in the hillside does mean that it may not be suitable for those with mobility problems (please see accessibility details).

The property has been furnished with modern living in mind, however Casa del Pretorio retains traditional features such as beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and terracotta pavements. Modern conveniences include Wifi internet connection, satellite TV and Play Station.

Casa del Pretorio is situated close to the village amenities all of which are within walking distance. There are 2 restaurants within walking distance plus a pizzeria, and 3 traditional bars serving breakfast pastries, snacks, cold drinks, tea, coffee, wine, beers and other alcoholic beverages.

The sleepy town of Vicopisano is full of character especially in its Medieval center where Casa del Pretorio is situated. The house is just a stone’s throw away from Brunelleschi's Medieval Fortress and the 12th Century Praetorian Palace both of which are open to the public at the weekends.

Vicopisano is the ideal base for exploring Tuscany being close to Pisa, Lucca and Florence and many other must see sites within the region.

The immediate area is also perfect for discovering a more authentic traditional Tuscany. Visitors to the area may visit an organic olive farm and see how extra virgin oil is made, there is also a ceramics workshop where an artisan potter still sits at the wheel. In addition there is the opportunity to take part in cooking lessons and discover the nearby vineyards for wine-tasting.

For those who love outdoor activities Vicopisano has the perfect terrain for walking, trekking, cycling and mountain biking. There are nearby stables for those who would like to ride. Within 30 minutes you can visit the coast and beaches, thermal spa and golf courses.
