Tuscany / Massa / One flow over the Cuckoo´s Nest in Massa
At the top of the Massa hills in a clearing with lots of olives, a rustic rustico for nature lovers.
Surrounded by 2 ha of land (fruit, agave, olives, vegetable garden and some forest), the small house is surrounded by a lot of dry stone walls and covered terraces, which are adapted to local summer life - you live outside. Under the terraces is another pizza oven, oven, tables, barbecue, tavern (garage) with barbecue, covered about 20m from the house. 3 stables. The house has no heating other than the fireplace, downstairs a living room with a fireplace, next to it a kitchen with a dining table, a steep wooden staircase up to where there is a double bedroom, and a simple open bedroom with an exit to the garden. Approximately 600m approach via a restless forest path that needs to be straightened from time to time.
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.
