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.
Land of longing Italy: Tuscany embodies the idea of Dolce Vita made in Italy like no other region in the country. Cypress-lined paths, green vineyards, fortress-like villages on the tops of flat hills, fine sandy beaches and cities steeped in history - Tuscany stands for joie de vivre, cultural enjoyment and relaxation. Anyone who has taken a dip on the Riviera della Versilia, strolled through the narrow medieval streets in Lucca, stood in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa or visited the wild horse show "Palio" in Siena is infected once and for all with the virus called "Tuscany". The scent of the pine forests, the taste of a strong Montepulciano, the chirping of the cicadas on a warm summer evening and the glitter of the Tyrrhenian Sea in the bright sunlight make Tuscany an incomparable place where poets, poets and painters found the inspiration for their works. Tuscany: art and cultural treasures from eight centuries Tuscany welcomes its visitors with centuries-old art and cultural treasures. Florence, the capital, was the epicentre of the fine arts and humanities during the Renaissance. Luminaries such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci worked in the city and the astronomer Galileo Galilei found employment as court mathematician to the Medici clan in the 17th century. The Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the medieval old town of Lucca and the noble tower houses, called "family towers", in San Gimignano are cultural treasures of inestimable value. The town of Montepulciano, situated on a slope of the Chiana valley, is not only known for its excellent red wine. In the centre, one Renaissance palace follows the next and from the balcony of the Caffé Poliziano you can enjoy a magnificent view of the lovely hilly landscape of Tuscany. Bathing on the Versilia Riviera The golden-yellow dream beaches of Tuscany stretch seemingly endlessly along the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. A hotspot of bathing tourism is the Riviera della Versilia, which stretches between Marina di Massa and the coastal town of Viareggio. If you are looking for a property in Italy with a sea view, you will find it in resorts such as Forte dei Marmi and Camaiore. In the hinterland of the coast, the Apuan Alps rise to an altitude of almost 2,000 metres. Most of the beaches on the Riviera della Versilia are managed. This means that you can look forward to a first-class infrastructure with sunbed and parasol rental, beach bars, freshwater showers and sanitary facilities. Tuscany: the region for gourmets In addition to enjoying the landscape and culture, Tuscany is known for its excellent cuisine. Hearty dishes such as Florentine steak (at least 800 grams of beef fillet), cinghiale in umido (wild boar stew) or the delicious bread salad panzanella are certainly not suitable for losing weight, but God certainly did not have a diet in mind when he created Italy. Some of the best wines in the world come from Tuscany. Fine wines like a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, an exquisite Tiganello or a spicy Chianti make not only wine connoisseurs click their tongues. The fact that wine is not just for drinking is proven by an ancient tradition that is still practised by locals in some regions of Tuscany. Dry almond pastry called cantucci is dipped into a glass of Vin Santo. When the dough has softened, the mixture is allowed to melt slowly in the mouth.
