LUXURY RENTAL VILLA WITH INFINITY POOL AND PANORAMIC VIEWS

Fivizzano Villa Rental Photos and Description

Perfect for a family get together or group of friends

‘Podere La Serra’ is a very special luxury rental villa with breathtaking panoramic views of the beautiful Apuane hills. This Grade II listed self-catering villa is a converted farmhouse and has been restored with loving attention to detail, with character features such as the traditional woodburning stove, huge chestnut beams and sweeping staircases. Luxury mod cons have been added such as the stunning infinity pool, looking out onto 50 miles of mesmerising Tuscan hills and valleys, as well as internal features such as ensuite Jacuzzis, Sky TV and wifi access. Outside, a lovely shaded pergola draped with purple wisteria is the setting for al fresco lunches and more often than not a glass of wine produced from the Podere's own vines. Set amongst sleepy Tuscan villages and within 60 acres of private vineyards, olive groves and porcini woodland, this villa gives a wonderful sense of peaceful seclusion, whilst only 10 minutes from Fivizzano and just an hour from Pisa airport.

Suitability:
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible
Guestbook comments from the owner
Queen Elizabeth is having her Diamond Jubilee year and Raymond and I are having a year of Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations! This holiday with family and friends has to be a very special highlight in our year. Having booked Podere La Serra in Sept 2011 we kept looking at the website and wondering if it would come up to expectations, we needn't have worried, it has surpassed them.

So many special memories to take home - Sunday lunch at Magliano's, the pizza evening at the house, Angela and Elisa, all the meals the family kept producing, the glorious weather, the hill villages we visited, the warmth of all the local people, the swimming pool, and above all the house and the spectacular views.

This beautiful villa is located just 30 minutes from the coast at Lerici, the gateway to the Cinque Terre, a world heritage site with picturesque fishing villages dotted along the coast. The Italian riviera is just 40 minutes away, with Portofino and Forte de Marmi providing ample shopping, sunbathing and nightlife. The villa is a 45 minute drive from Lucca, and 1.5 hrs from Florence, both excellent day trips with fantastic shopping. Pisa is an hour's drive.

Podere La Serra is also within 40 minutes of Cerreto, a small but perfectly formed ski resort open from late December - April with excellent Red and Blue skiing.

You can hire scuba and snorkelling equipment on the Cinque Terre, ski in the Appenine mountains, see the sights in Florence, Pisa and Lucca or tour our outstanding local restaurants, where you can still eat like a king for the cost of a sandwich at home.

Notes:
The villa boasts a fantastic terrace area, with ample room for outdoor dining and parties. A wisteria draped pergola provides shade for the large hand-made table, where one can sit and soak up the views of the surrounding hills. A further terrace area to the side of the villa is furnished with a breakfast table and chairs and the villa's working pizza oven. The villa's own well provides the infinity pool with natural spring water, and waters the vines and olive groves surrounding the property. Podere La Serra is set within 60 acres of private terraces and idyllic woodland, with stunning views of the Tuscan hills beyond. The house benefits from central heating throughout, however the gas is extremely expensive, so an extra charge is added should guests wish to use the heating during their stay. A powerful woodburner has been installed in the lounge with unlimited supplies of wood, which more than heats the entire house.
