Description

Terricciola Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Ancient housing estate of '700 restored by our family in time!

Strategic location for daily trip to Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Siena and San Gimignano in the calm of a still authentic Tuscan countryside. At few kilometers from the historical villages of Lari, Volterra and and from the thermal center of Casciana Terme (10min drive). The mansion is at the top of the hill, with a pleasant 360’ view on the countryside and a spectacular stars view in the night. The wide patio allows a fresh stay also in the summer season. In 40 minuts by car is possible to arrive to the beach of Tirrenia (and its golf course), Castiglioncello and Calafuria.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed

About Cristina Bisà

I live in Liguria, near the Cinque Terre, but my family is from this area of Tuscany where in the 70's my father repurchased a house in the area that he knew as a boy. For love of this land.

Cristina Bisà purchased this chateau / country house in 1974

Why Cristina Bisà chose Pisa

Because it's confortable and authentic, located in area of Tuscany which offers several options to spend holidays: resting in the calm of the patio, or visiting the historic cities and villages around, spending some lazy hours in the thermal water, or testing wines in the caves of the wineyards, or going to the beach on the sea coast of Tuscany. Whow!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

A real Tuscan farmhouse. Not a product built for tourists, but our house for our guests. In the quiet of a authentic Tuscany and strategic to visit 360 ° this beautiful region.

Great location in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Cristina's villa. It was a central location to many cities and small villages as well. We were three couples and we loved having so much room to spread out in the villa. Two of our days, we went nowhere and just enjoyed the beautiful scenery surrounding the villa. A couple others we went to cities... Florence and Sienna. A couple others we stayed closer and enjoyed the therapy pools and wine-tasting. It was a wonderful trip.

tolle Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Ferien waren sehr schön.

Das Haus ist super ausgestattet. Perfekt für eine große Familie. Da es im Oktober noch sehr warm war, konnten wir die riesige Terasse fast täglich nutzen. Die Küche ist gut zum kochen eingerichtet. Wir fanden sogar scharfe Messer im Schrank.

Vielen dank!

Anne Schattka-Steinbruch.

Superbe demeure !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine dans cette magnifique demeure idéalement située en plein coeur de la Toscane. La maison est encore plus belle en réalité que sur les photos ! L'intérieur est vaste, très propre et dans un style toscan, le tout au cours de la nature toscane ! Elle possède 2 immenses terrasses qui permettent de profiter des longues soirées d'été ! L'environnement est très calme. Idéal pour partir en famille avec des enfants ou avec des amis, l'espace intérieur comme extérieur permet de ne pas se gêner du tout ! Vraiment rien à dire c'était parfait ! Nous reviendrons !!!

Großzügiges Landhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist tatsächlich so schön und groß wie es auf den Fotos aussieht, uns hat es sehr gut gefallen!

Wegen des günstigen Preises haben wir das Haus als Familie mit nur 2 Erwachsenen und 2 Kleinkindern genutzt.

Die Buchung war einwandfrei. Bei Ankunft war alles schön sauber, kleine Mängel wie defekte Glühbirnen und Probleme beim Fernsehempfang wurden schnell, freundlich und zuvorkommend behoben.

Die Küchenausstattung ist ausreichend, es gibt allerdings keine Kleinelektrogeräte (d.h. kein Toaster, Kaffeemaschine etc.), das war aber vorher aus der Beschreibung ersichtlich. Zum Kaffeekochen gibt es zwei kleine Espressokännchen für den Herd, funktioniert tadellos.

Die Lage ist günstig, weil man in etwa die gleiche Fahrtzeit (ca. 1 Stunde) nach Pisa, Florenz, San Gimmignano und Volterra hat, nur nach Siena ist es etwas weiter(1h 45), aber auch möglich zu fahren.

Mit dem Auto erreicht man zwei größere Supermärkte (in La Capannina) in nur 7 Minuten.

Besonders empfehlenswert ist ein Besuch in Lari, mit der Möglichkeit die dort ansässige Pastamanufaktur Martelli nach vorheriger telefonischer Buchung zu besichtigen. Die köstliche Pasta kann man vor Ort in einem Spezialitätenladen kaufen.

Wir würden dieses schöne Anwesen weiterempfehlen!

Bellissima e consigliatissimissima!!!

  • 5 of 5

La casa è grande, ottimamente arredata, fresca in estate e di un portico enorme sotto il quale è piacevolissimo mangiare tutti assieme o anche solo riposare. Le camere sono spaziose e confortevoli: noi eravamo in 7 (4 adulti e 3 ragazzi) e ci siamo trovati benissimo, ma direi che fino a 10 persone ci si entra comunque alla grande.

E' situata su una collinetta da cui si può ammirare un tipico panorama dell'entroterra toscano, tutto colline, cipressi e case coloniche; è piuttosto isolata ma a neanche 2 km dal paese più vicino, il che garantisce un certo livello di privacy senza però dare l'impressione di essere, appunto, troppo isolati (nessun problema di sicurezza notturna, grazie alle grate che bloccano tutte le porte e finestre). Inoltre, è ottimamente posizionata per visitare le città d'arte toscane, visto in un'ora di auto si arriva ovunque, da Firenze a Lucca a San Gimignano (solo Siena è un po' più distante, circa 90 minuti).

I gestori sono gentilissimi e disponibili a venire incontro alle vostre richieste come meglio possono, ed il prezzo è veramente ottimo!

From Lari , are very famous the cherries (end of May the Cherry Feast) and the homemade pasta produced by Pastificio Martelli, the Wine Road of Colline Pisane with the spring opening of the canteens for tasting wines, and the authentic taste of meat and hams at butcheries in Soiana or Terricciola.
