About the property

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.

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 Terricciola

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.

Beautiful stay in Terricciola

  • 5 of 5

We found the house after a kind lady helped us. It was in impeccable condition and ideally located. It is a beautiful home with stone walls, and wood beam ceilings, very gracious. We were eight family members and enjoyed our stay immensely. The location was perfect for us as we were visiting our past home in Marina di Pisa and wanted to explore the Tuscan hills in the area. It was an easy commute to Florence and Siena. We enjoyed several meals together on the porch which was covered and very comfortable. A true highlight for us was watching our three grown children sitting together on the lawn watching the magnificent sunset on our first night at the villa. Thank you for a memorable stay and we hope to return again someday!

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.

Sehr ansprechendes Ambiente in schöner Landschaft!

  • 4 of 5

Wunderschön und aufwändig restauriertes Haus in herrlicher Natur und sehr ruhig. Zentral gelegen, die schönsten Städte der Toskana und Strände in max. 1 Stunde mit dem Auto erreichbar. Restaurants und große Supermärkte in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Gepflegtes Objekt mit guter Ausstattung, bis auf wenige Schwachstellen: Wlan leider sehr instabil, kaum nutzbar. Z. B. Arbeiten ist nicht möglich. Ca. 2000 Fernsehprogramme über Satellit, allerdings hauptsächlich arabisch, türkisch, russisch, ein paar italienische Sender. Kaffeemaschine müsste ersetzt werden. Ansonsten aber weitgehend alles vorhanden, was man braucht, einschließlich BlueRay/DVD Player, Föhn, Spülmaschine etc. Kann man auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!

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 !!!
