Stone home with view of the sea and Lake Santa Luce - Il Cipresso

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,152 sq. ft.
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights



Il Cipresso

This bright and spacious apartment on the 2nd floor is made up of: a fully equipped kitchen where you can feed up to 15 people, a living-room with view, a master bedroom suite with queen size bed and bath with shower and 3 triple bedrooms which share a bath with shower. The furnishings are all in good shape and the living-room and kitchen are decorated in Tuscan country style. During the restoration work many architectural details were conserved, such as the wooden framework of the roof visible in the kitchen. The house has a comfortable rural atmosphere, which can be enjoyed inside and out. A glass of wine in the evening in your own private section of the garden, while watching the sun set behind the hills into the sea, will be an unforgettable experience.

Das ist mein Italien

  • 5 of 5

Bezüglich der letzten Wegstrecke sind wir auch mit 2 etwas tiefergelegten sportlichen Fahrzeugen ohne Probleme zu unserem Feriendomizil gelangt. Die Vermieter sprachen zwar kein Deutsch und auch nur wenig Englisch, die Verständung hätte aber trotzdem prima geklappt (ich kann halt ein wenig Italienisch und das macht es leichter). Man war sehr gut auf uns vorbereitet, bot uns für den ersten Abend auch gleich verschiedene, im eigenen Steinofen hergestellte Pizzen an, den Wein konnte man so nehmen, ein Strich auf einer Liste genügte, und auch sonst war man sehr zuvorkommend und großzügig. Einmal gab es eine Melone, das andere Mal einen Käse geschenkt und jeder Wunsch wurde schnellstens erfüllt.

Ansonsten waren die Vermieter - obwohl im gleichen Haus wohnend - sehr unauffällig.

Der Swimmingpool war sehr sauber, vielleicht wären einige Auflagen für die Liegen eine gute Tat für die Zukunft.

Die Schafzimmer sind einfach aber zweckdienlich, das Wohnzimmer recht gemütlich und die Küche hatte mit dem Wachstuch das richtige italienische Flair.

Der Einkauf von Lebensmitteln ist im Dorf nur bedingt möglich, eine reichere Auswahl hat man bei den Coop Läden die schon mal 18-20 km entfernt sind. Dort bekommt man allerdings auch alles (auch Sonntags)

z.B. in Vada oder auf der Strecke kurz vor Pisa.

Der Strand von Vada (Spiaggie bianchi) bietet typisches Strandleben bei nahezu karibischen Wasserfarben. Fröhlich kommt ca. alle 3 Minuten ein Verkäufer von Sonnenbrillen, Uhren, Eis, Coccobello, Tüchern und alles was man eigentlich schon hat, vorbei - aber so ist halt Italien. Wir haben Haus, Swimmingpool und Strand genossen, zumal wir von diesem doch recht zentralen Punkt die Städte Pisa, Volterra, San Giminiano, Florenz und Siena mit Ihren Sehenswürdigkeiten besuchen konnten.

Wir könnten dieses Objekt eigentlich vollen Herzens empfehlen, aber dann kommen womöglich auch andere und wir haben keinen Platz mehr im nächsten Jahr.

Liebe Rosanna und lieber Lodovico: tante grazie per la vostra amabilita.

Claus und Patrizia Muhs sowie die gesamte Familie

Car: necessary

Santa Luce is a small antique village that has maintained it's original appearance down through the centuries. In the town, you can find a trattoria/café and a small grocer. For any other needs Collesalvetti, which has a shopping center and highway access, is a 15 min. drive. The local farmers produce olive oil, wine and grains. The region is known for it's beautiful countryside and mild climate. The wooded park is perfect for hiking and in the autumn is full of mushrooms. The closest beach, Vada, is just 20 min. away by car. Lake Santa Luce is a nature reserve and therefore no bathing is allowed.
