Traditional Tuscan farmhouse, within walking distance of restaurant597
Traditional Tuscany 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.

We spent a week here in the hottest week of the year so far. The pool was very necessary as the house is not air conditioned and the tiles on the roof radiate the heat . The house was full of character, pretty well equipped and some local produce from the estate had been left for us which was a nice touch. The restaurant 200m away is very good and the location is quiet but easy to get to towns around Tuscany.Pisa airport is only 25 minutes away-a very easy transfer.
We had an amazing 2 week stay at the farmhouse. It was very rustic and amenities reflect the age of the property. The pool and large private grounds were amazing and gave us our own slice of Tuscany!!! The surrounding area was beautiful and the local restaurant across the road was fantastic (especially local night on Thursday evenings from 8pm (15EUR per person buffet with a free drink, 10EUR kids...)
The property has no air con and the house heats up during the day. Given the heat wave (42c) the small fans were not quite adequate to cool the rooms (especially the master bedroom with en-suite).
Overall the villa was awesome and we had fabulous time chilling by the pool and eating outside under the trees. There are a few small items that we have suggested are fixed/upgraded in order to ensure everyone continues to have an enjoyable stay. Ciao
