This villa apartment is situated in an ancient complex dating back to the 18th century located in the countryside near the village of Orentano. Up until the first half of '50s, the property was used as a farmhouse, and then the owners began a tasteful restoration with special attention to its original architectural characteristics. Surrounding the complex, the property extends outwards and includes a wooded area ideal for taking hikes, a lawn with a tennis court, and a swimming pool (12m x 6m), open from May to September, with a jacuzzi.

This apartment is located in the countryside, within walking distance of the small Tuscan village of Orentano, perhaps known best for its traditional shows, organized throughout the year. The most significant of these occurs in February: the children's carnival, a kind of festival/parade with floats designed to delight and inspire the imaginations of little ones. In July there is a pizza and beer festival featuring traditional Tuscan dishes, and in August comes the cake festival, celebrated with the creation and display of one elaborate, gargantuan cake! You can always find a restaurant, a pizzeria, and various small shops in town. The surrounding area also produces two famous DOC wines: Montecarlo and Chianti. The nearby medieval hamlet of Altopascio is also well worth a visit, as it has a long and interesting history dating back to the 12th century. Altopascio also offers a Thursday market, a bakery, supermarket, and an internet point. But if you have a taste for more urban delights, this Tuscany apartment also has easy access to the Autostrada, so you'll have no problem taking day trips to various Tuscan highlights, including Lucca, Pisa, and Florence.
