PRIVATE STRUCTURE (LEASE ONLY). Villa Duck is very close to Crespina, surrounded by woods, olive groves and hills of wheat. The villa is the old 19th century manor house of the Le Prata estate which the current owners have restored and renovated, preserving the original structure, especially on the ground floor which is characterized by large areas with high vaulted ceilings, by the old feeding trough transformed in fireplace and by French windows that let in natural light, giving the house a warm cosy feeling. The house is surrounded by three hectares of land planted with olive trees and a beautiful level garden with pool and hot tub. Villa Duck is just a short drive from the international airports of Pisa and Florence. Given its position, it is the perfect starting point for guests to visit the many tourist centres such as Pisa, Florence, Volterra, Lucca and Siena, all within easy driving distance. Also interesting is the possibility, during the summer season, of spending pleasant days on the beaches of nearby Versilia.

The 350 square metre villa has two floors. The ground floor entrance leads from an old portico to a large entrance hall leading on to the dining room and living room, to a kitchen with fireplace, to a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower which also has outside access, to the laundry room also with outside access. The antique, 19-step staircase leads up to the first floor consisting of a kitchenette and study area with fireplace and of the sleeping area with three large double bedrooms, one twin bedroom and three bathrooms with shower.

Park

The outdoor area covers an area of about 5000 square metres, consisting mainly of garden with lawn while the entrance to the property is characterized by the presence of cypress trees.

The name Crespina, set in the heart of Tuscany, is probably derived from a personal Roman name (Crispinius) of Etruscan origin (Crespini, Crespnie). The first historical knowledge about Crespina is from 983 and refers to the Bishop of Lucca, the city that ruled the small town of Crespina until the 13th century, when it then passed under the dominion first of Pisa and then of Florence which, following a violent rebellion in the mid 15th century, dismantled the castle permanently. This is the most beautiful part of the Pisan hills; the district of Crespina includes many exclusive homes with names like Vallisonzi, Belvedere, S. Lucia, Cenaja, Borgo, Filichetto, Piazza, Il Poggio, Bizzucchello, Guardia Vecchia, Guardia Nuova, Fungiaja, Leccia, Carpineto and Volpaia; these villas became haunts for artists like Giovanni Fattori, Silvestro Lega, Telemaco Signorini and many other Macchiaioli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macchiaioli) like Cannicci and Cecconi. Crespina is easily reached; it is only 80 km from Florence, 35 km from Pisa, 35 km from Livorno and 60 km from Lucca and Viareggio. Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo, is only 50 km away where you can also visit the museum. Monteriggioni (cited in a canto of the Divine Comedy) and its castle are 90 km away. It can be reached by the A12 motorway to the Collesalvetti exit then the Firenze-Pisa-Livorno highway to the Lavoria exit.
