Beautiful traditional-style country villa in Tuscany with views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago.
The property is located in the middle of an enchanted and unspoilt olive grove and is surrounded by an ancient oak and beech forest. Because of the 'Gabberi' mountain behind it, there is a special microclimate. The property can be reached by car via a private road, which has the typical characteristics of this hilly landscape.
In addition to the 9-hectare olive grove (approx. 4,000 olive trees) and a wooded area of approx. 2 hectares, which have never been treated by any chemical or synthetic substances, two other structures are part of the property: an annexe near the house and a rustic cottage, which is 100 m above the main house. There is also a wonderful view of the Tuscan archipelago from there. It is currently used as a warehouse, but can be renovated as an independent living unit (approx. 80 sqm).
The farmhouse is currently divided into three flats. Two flats have a net area of 90 sqm, while the third flat has a net area of 150 sqm. The three flats can easily be connected to each other and converted into a single living unit. In the basement of the main house there is a cellar for bottling and storing oil and a wood-burning oven that bakes excellent pizzas and bread.
The silence, the clean air and the scent of the many wild flowers and herbs, the isolation and the characteristic white rocks make the place unique. On a clear day you can see the distant islands of the Tuscan archipelago (e.g. Elba) and even the snow-capped mountains of Corsica. The tap water is very fresh and pure and comes directly from the Stazzema spring, which is located directly on the property.
The Casale offers complete privacy and the unique feeling of genuine, unspoilt nature, while being only a short drive away from many wonderful destinations. Such as the art city of Pietrasanta, the beaches and nightlife of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi (15 minutes) and the famous medieval towns of Lucca and Pisa (30 minutes). Florence and the Cinque Terre are only an hour away, Versilia Hospital 10 minutes and Pisa International Airport (Ryanair base for central Italy) can be reached in 30 minutes.
From the Etruscans 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. Visitors to Tuscany come for many reasons. Many come in search of fine art, others to explore the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer vacationers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture. There is a lot to see and do in Tuscany, the difficulty is really where to start. Certainly most should start with Florence, then continue on to Siena and Pisa. The roll call of città di arte, cities of art, is daunting: Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and Lucca are all striking. The more you come to know the region, the more extraordinary Tuscany appears.
