& 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.

Swimming pool open 01/06 to 30/09

Reviews

Jeremy Roberts

Firstly, can I thank you for your service in arranging the holiday. You were extremely helpful and prompt in replying to all of my queries. You handled our brief well and found us a property when we were struggling to do it ourselves. Your instructions were clear and accurate. Great Job. The House. Pisa airport is 28 minutes to the west and Florence 45 minutes to the East. Siena is 1.30 hrs south east. Rolling Tuscan can be found about 30 mins south of the house. The surrounding region is unremarkable flat farming land. The site on which the farmhouse is situated is different. It is on a hill surrounded by trees which makes for a green, secluded oasis. As for the property. The description on the website is extremely accurate, with the phrase, “Traditional Tuscan Farmhouse,” encapsulating the essence of the property. The house is rustic which brings its own charm. The downstairs bathroom needs renovating but the others are bright and modern. The beds are comfy and there are plenty of seating areas. The kitchen is large but the owners need to invest in pots and pans. 1 frying pan, 1 saucepan is not enough when the house can cater for 8 people. As for spoons, there were 2. Everything else was fine. The outside is fabulous. The owners spends a great deal of time and effort in making the grounds and pool perfect and they need to be congratulated for it. Well mown green lawns, which are watered every day, surround a large private pool which is shallow enough for children and deep enough for extra fun. I reckon it was 2.5M at the deep end. We were a family of 2 Adults, 3 children and 2 grandparents. It was big enough for us to rattle around in. We had a great time. Well done Homes in Italy, we hope to use you again.
