Lovely Country villa 17th Century - with views, pool, nature oasis

Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Nov-2016
Villa in the countryside with16 sleeps (8 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms) comfortably

400 Years old country house, Panoramic location, comfortably developed and fitted out. The most interesting sites of Tuscany, as well as the beach, are within easy reach of the property. The villa (Podere) lies in the suggestive hilly area between Pisa and Volterra, only 1 km from a little village, on a hill, from which one can admire a vast and wonderful panorama of fields and rolling hills. The view stretches out past Volterra (30 km) and almost into the Chianti area. Its origin dates back to the 17th century: at that time it was inhabited by monks and used for religious purposes; it later served as a farm. Following very careful restoration in full respect of the original structures and the interesting addition of comfortable elements of modern architecture. Furnished in excellent taste and well-equipped. The house is surrounded by three hectares of terraced grounds with fields, olive groves and woods that invite for leisurely walks in beautiful surroundings.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families (14 persons) 16-60 years renting the house for two weeks. Everybody was very impressed with the house. Perfectly renovated with respect to the old style. The house has three floors and three good kitchens, we only used the really big and best equipped kitchen at the bottom floor. 8 good bedrooms, nobody complained.

Several nice patios around the place. Most stunning is the balcony on the top floor with magnificent view and room for 15 - 20 persons. Most used by us was the patio under roof outside the big kitchen. Nice garden with lots of birds. The location, outdoor places and pool area make this house a wonderful place.

Two small villages within walking dictance. Downhill to the villages, uphill back home. Rivalto 5-10 min, Chianni 20-25 min. Rivalto is really small but has a nice bar/restaurant (da Mirella). Chianni has small shops and restaurants. Nice walking tours in the hills. The local manager, Daniella, was very nice and made us feel welcome. We truly can recommend this house. Notice that there are several stairs inside and outside.

We hope we can come back another time!

excellent location, very clean, good service.

  • 5 of 5

This house was just PERFECT for our vacation, a celebration for our oldest in our family, mom and dad`s 70ths birthday! We were aged from 8 to 70, 3 generations. The property was even better and bigger than any photo could show us, it was VERY clean everywhere, the service and the help we needed was excellent, the Italien people very, very nice, kind, and helpful, and so were also the properties owner. The location was like a dream to us, and SOOO Italien - we couldn`t have chosen a better place or property for our big family for beeing together all of us - and we also had space to be alone, if we wanted to, because of the size of the house and garden. It was also very exciting to be in such an old, well held "castle" - and all the kids and teenagers also loved to stay here! We are so happy, and so satisfied - out best vacation ever! And we are a "travelling" family! We WILL be back one day - for sure! We also had so many, many place to visit from there, - we still have so many places around Chianni to visit - and Tuscany is very beautiful and stunning! A place to go for good memories!

Anne and family from Norway!

Très belle maison, avec une magnifique vue

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans cette maison avec beaucoup de charme. Idéale pour plusieurs familles (nous étions 3 couples et 8 enfants), très belle cuisine (avec un équipement rare dans une location) donnant sur une terrasse couverte (fraicheur bienvenue l été ). Magnifique vue depuis le jardin et la terrasse de deuxième étage, piscine, hamacs, coin balançoire, table de Ping pong...beaucoup de jouets laissés à la disposition des enfants. Nous avons tous été séduits. A proximité, village de Chianni avec commerces.
