Surrounded by green hills, behind the woods of beech and chestnut, and with breathtaking views of the Mediavalle Serchio Valley and the Turrite Cava, is the holiday home 'La Defense'. 'Today the house has lost its splendor patriarchal; for most of the men and 'just a house, on which weighs no more' memory of past generations, which does not take imprisoned future centuries. But the woman is constantly striving to give his' inside 'the meaning and the value it had the true home' (S. de Beauvoir). The house is named after the farm 'In Defense', a plot of land of about 10,000 square meters, once entirely planted with olive trees, vineyards and fruit trees. Ed and 'right in the middle of the farm that are born in the 20's the big farm house, the hut for the cattle, the oven in which grandmother Filu' / grandmother Rosa cooked the famous 'pies with beaks', and finally the barnyard where men were occupied in maintenance chores and was awake at night.

With the progressive abandonment of rural life, even the house was slowly left to itself, to give it consider selling. But the family could not give up a part so 'important in its history! And so 'were the love and constancy of Paola (the former' small house ', now owns the property) to revive the memory of past times, and especially to begin the careful and meticulous renovation. Tradition meets modern engineering. Namely, the protection and welfare of the person at the center of our thoughts. E 'was always the love for the house and for the person the main theme of the work and needs of engineers, builders, property'. The result achieved and 'in our opinion satisfactory' was retrieved, the original architecture of the house, all in keeping with the latest regulations. Cosi ', for example, the first attention' was given to anti-seismic regulations, under which were among the other completely redone the floors. Perspective of comfort and respect for the environment (through the optimization of energy efficiency) and 'was then installed a floor heating. But it 'especially the full implementation of the legislation for the removal of architectural barriers that represents for us the greatest pride. In fact, access to the apartment on the first floor and 'guaranteed through a ramp easily covered by people with disabilities. The apartment 'then no steps or other uneven, being so' guaranteed access to various local.

meravigliosa casa e proprietaria

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato a La Difesa, siamo stati accolti con grande cortesia e calore. I proprietari sono gentili, premurosi e discreti. La casa è pulita, ordinata e spaziosa, ottima per una grande famiglia o un gruppo di amici, impreziosita da mobili di legno e ceramiche eleganti. Il luogo è lontano da qualsiasi rumore e immerso nella campagna . Ci siamo trovati talmente a nostro agio che una sera abbiamo condiviso con la famiglia dei proprietari un caffe' Ideale per una vacanza all''insegna del relax totale, pace e silenzio fanno da contorno ad una struttura deliziosamente arredata,lontano dalla confusione cittadina.Massima pulizia all''interno.grande disponibilità ed estrema gentilezza da parte della proprietaria Paola spero di poter tornare anche per altri periodi.lo consigliero' anche ad altri amici per il prossimo anno.grazie veramentge di cuore da alba giovanna cinzia roberto gigi ale ed i piccoli matteo giorgia e chiara
