The villa is an attractive and secluded villa, positioned on a hillside dotted with pine trees, above the little village of Pietrabuona. Off the beaten track, this enchanting retreat nestles in the forested countryside of Northwest Tuscany. Just north of Pescia, guests are well positioned for visiting Tuscan landmarks such as Lucca and Florence and for venturing further afield to Pisa and the coast.
A steep paved track winds its way up to the villa, which has been tastefully furnished throughout.
The area is ideal for walkers, nature lovers and, for the adventurous, mountain bike trips.
The gardens of this property are delightfully terraced with a large seating and dining area, perfect for soaking up the beautiful countryside and sampling the local produce of the region.
The swimming pool (available from May to September) is set in well tended lawns, dotted with flowers, where guests can swim and relax in complete privacy and tranquillity.
The ground floor comprises of a nicely decorated kitchen, equipped with a 4-ring gas hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is a small separate dining room and a downstairs WC. The cosy living room, with its open fire place.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one pretty double bedroom, one single, one twin ( can be made into a double) and a bathroom with bath. In addition, there is a self-contained studio on two floors consisting of a kitchenette and a living room with open hearth and a small set of spiral stairs leading to a double bedroom with a spacious en suite shower.
Beautiful house with private pool in Northern Tuscany, a good place to visit Pisa and Lucca and of course it is close by the sea ! Also you can drive up the hills in Northern Tuscany which is very nice for an alternative to all the city's !
The house is well equipped, everything you need is there, including a dishwasher, an oven, a washing-machine etc.
The garden is very nice and the view is beautiful, you can see up to the next hill ! In the garden is a private pool, quite large. The owners keep the garden and the pool nice and clean every 2 days.
The only thing we were not to happy about was the private pathway up to the house. If you have a small car it is no problem at all, but if you have a large car (type station wagon) the turns are to narrow and then the road is frightening to go up and to go down, it is very steep and narrow. We heard that the owner is planning to do some works improving the viability of the two curves causing this difficulties to large cars. If that is done (expected ready before summer holidays 2014) the property would get 5 stars instead of 4 !
The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennines Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the north west and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West.
From the Etruscan to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.
Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated.
