About the property

Mansion, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

This is a historic holiday home with real atmosphere between Pisa and Florence, in the town of Palaia. The house (on two floors) dates from 1200 and has been completely restored in a unique way, with the splendid frescoes from 1600 being preserved. The house is above street level and was built above an archaeological excavation site (with remains from the pre-Roman, Etruscan period). Enjoy the truly old Tuscan style in this house. Due to the dominant position above the town, you will also have a vast panoramic view over Palaia and the typically Tuscan area. You will have a spacious, private terrace at your disposal (30 m) situated against the fortresss old walls. There is a great deal of space both inside and outside. You can use the swimming pool, the garden area and the other facilities of an agritourism building 200 m away (belonging to the same owner). Wine and olive oil are produced in the country estate next door, also belonging to the owner. You can thus try and purchase wine and olive oil as well as watch how the wine and olive oil are produced (to be arranged with the owner).

Het was een heerlijke vakantie! Een huis met een prachtige ligging en schitterend uitzicht.

Het is niet handig om met de auto tot aan het huis te rijden, het achteruit rijden in het smalle straatje met bochten is een pittige uitdaging. Beter 100 meter eerder bagage uitladen.
