Villa Melone - Traditional Tuscan farmhouse, within walking distance of restaurant
& private pool, located in the countryside around Pisa
Traditional Tuscan farmhouse that is part of an important Tuscan farm, once owned by the family of Duca Alessandro De Medici to whom we owe the origins of the beautiful villa in the middle of the estate. Then having been sold through the centuries, it was purchased in 1634 by the family of the present-day owners. The farm is large animal reserve (no hunting), therefore it is quite normal to see deer and other fauna grazing in fields.
This house has undergone only essential restoration work and is ideal for families or groups of friends who look for a basic holiday home but in a fascinating location. The house is surrounded by a pretty, fenced-in lawn with garden furniture and where you can let your children freely run and play, and where you will also find a swimming pool of exclusive use (7m x 14m). A romantic and characteristic country restaurant that is property of the farm, offers lunch at special prices and is only 200m away. In addition, personalized cooking lessons can be organized, as well as tasting of local wine and food products and during the right time of year, tasting of and hunting for truffle mushrooms. Very simply furnished property. Central heating. Parking inside the property.
