Beautiful vacation farmhouse between Pisa and Lucca, a few kilometers from Versilia and its beaches. Sleeps 8, swimming pool, Internet connection, barbecue. Tennis club, thermal baths and riding stable within 15 kilometers.
The elegant 17th-century farmhouse stands at an altitude of 300 meters on the hills between Pisa and Lucca, a few kilometers from Versilia.
Although it is renowned mainly as a summer-vacation destination and for the Carnival of Viareggio, Versilia has a lot more to offer than its wonderful beaches. Its hills are scattered with small villages still neglected by mass tourism but that are nevertheless worth a visit. Moreover, many of them, such as Colonnata and Gombitelli are renowned for their food specialties.
Nature and speleology lovers will enjoy a visit to Massaciuccoli natural park, the Antro del Corchia (or cave of Corchia) and the Grotta del vento (or Wind cave).
Finally yet importantly, culture. In summer, Versilia hosts two major events: the Festival della Versiliana, which is held in the homonymous villa in Marina di Pietrasanta, and the Festival Puccini in Torre del Lago, which is dedicated to the famous composer.
Thanks to its geographical position, the farmhouse is an excellent departure point for one-day jaunts to Lucca, Pisa, Florence, the villages of Garfagnana, Volterra and San Gimignano; the beaches of Versilia are within short driving distance, as well. A riding stable, a tennis club and the thermal baths of Uliveto Terme and San Giuliano Terme are in proximity to the property.
The farmhouse is located in a very peaceful area on the hills between Pisa and Lucca and enjoys a mild climate the whole year round. The wide terrace furnished for dining al fresco in front of the building and the private swimming pool (10x4 m; depth: 0.25-1.45 m) in the terraced garden afford a wonderful view of the surrounding hills.
The farmhouse is a two-story building consisting of kitchen, dining room with fireplace, living room that can be converted into a twin bedroom, a double bedroom with a private half bathroom, a triple bedroom, a single bedroom and two more bathrooms with shower.
