Get a taste of life in the Tuscan countryside at villa Fagnana. The restored farm, whose eight bedrooms are divided between a former farmhouse and barn, offers a quiet, private getaway spot thats still conveniently close to cities like Pisa, Florence, Siena and Lucca. Enjoy the timeless setting of rolling hills dotted with traditional buildings from a home thats been updated with modern luxuries.
The propertys outdoor spaces make it easy to appreciate its rural setting on an estate once owned by the bankers to the Medici family. The kitchen and living room open to a large terrace with a barbecue, shaded dining table, and a smaller table perfect for breakfast or a snack. Down a flight of steps, youll find the inground pool, which is surrounded by its own terrace, loungers and gazebo. The villa itself is air conditioned and has Wi-Fi in the main areas and a VoIP phone, plus a laptop, iPod and baby equipment upon request.
Fagnanas interiors still have their traditional bones, but have been given a fresh, modern update. In the living rooms, youll find classic Tuscan cotto floors, large fireplaces, and beamed ceilings, set off by clean-lined, neutral-toned sofas and glass-topped side tables. The quiet, spacious dining room pairs an antique console with a simple farmhouse table and chairs. In the kitchen, which is open to the dining room, modern appliances like a large gas range are tucked into pale wood cabinets and open upper shelving.
There are seven bedrooms in the main house and one bedroom in the former barn (now a guest cottage). In the main house, the ground floor features a bedroom with double bed and an en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, youll find one bedroom with a king bed and en-suite bathroom and one bedroom with a queen bed and en-suite bathroom. A bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with a single bed share a bathroom, and a bedroom with a queen bed and a bedroom with a single bed share another bathroom. In the guest cottage, theres a bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom.
Since Fagnana is located on a 1,700-acre estate, theres plenty to explore on foot, like the private church thats a 15-minute walk away. By car, its 10 minutes to shopping, dining and a tennis court in the town of Forcoli, and 15 minutes to the hospital and train station in Pontedera. Just 20 minutes away, youll find the Castelfalfi golf course, and the beaches in Pisa and Tirrenia are 45 minutes away.

Villa Saletta estate, once owned by the Riccardi family (bankers to the Medici), covers approximately 1,760 acres. In total, there are more than 20 old farmhouses on the estate, mostly dating back to the 1800s. Each one has its own story to tell, being unique and individual in size and location.
Three of these farmhouses have been restored so far. Every restored villa has its own private grounds with electric gates, outdoor swimming pool, barbecue and comfortable shaded seating areas.
use on this large estate to be restored. It was then refurbished in 2004 to give it an updated feel and add more modern conveniences. It is set on very private, secure grounds and, being situated in the hills, provides excellent views towards Pisa and spectacular sunsets.
Opposite the main entrance to the house is the Limonaia, a separate building which has a large double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
An open terrace for outdoor dining runs the length of the house at the rear, complete with barbeque. The terrace overlooks the private, enclosed garden featuring a large area of lawn with mature olive trees and attractive flower beds. A swimming pool with its own sun terrace completes the picture.
Please note estate roads are not suitable for vehicles with poor ground clearance

The villa is big with most amenities you need for a large group. The veranda and the pool area is great and the garden is well maintained. Good restaurants in the neighborhood. Can recommend this villa.
Beautiful villa with gorgeous, magical views! It was so quiet and relaxing. We loved taking hikes around the property, swim in the pool and prepare home cooked meals. The village nearby had a wonderful grocery with fish and fresh produce. We travelled to San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Cinque Terre and Portofino and the villa was the perfect central location for all our day trips. Rooms were very comfortable and clean, appreciated the daily cleaning service. Wished we could have lingered more in the villa and the surrounding villages, 7 days seemed short! Service was excellent! Pascal and Jenni were wonderful. Jenni stayed very late for our check in and helped our friend out with dental appointments. She was readily available for any concerns and made sure she attended to our needs immediately. We will definitely travel with Luxury Retreats and hope to come back to Fagnana villa again!
