LA VILLA NELL'ISOLA VERDE 12

Toscana - Pisa - CASCIANA TERME

Description:

PRIVATE STRUCTURE (only lease - CIR CODE: 050040LTN0060). La Villa nell'Isola Verde (The Villa on the Green Island) is located on a hilltop completely surrounded by six hectares of olive trees, fruit trees and herbs, with a wonderful view of the castle town of Lari, a medieval strategic point on the road between Pisa and Volterra. Hints as to the origin of the villa can be found in history books: in 1000AD this land was the herbal and aromatic garden for the nearby stately home of the Upezzinghi, an important family of Pisan feudal nobility, who were long term rivals of the Medici family. La Villa nell'Isola Verde, which covers an area of about 315 sq m, has been recently renovated, blending typical Tuscan style with internal nordic elements and ethnic touches from Asia and Africa, reflecting the deep bond of the owners with Tuscany and their experiences and roots in other parts of the world. The villa is located on the Pisan Hills Wine Route and nearby the village of Lari, local area famous for the annual cherry festival and pasta production. The isolated tranquility of this property is ideal for a relaxing holiday in the picturesque Tuscan countryside enjoying the views, nearby hot springs and waterfalls or activities such as biking, horse riding or walking. It is also ideal for those wishing to visit the beautiful attractions of the region; as this is an excellent starting point for art lovers visiting cities such as Pisa, Lucca and Florence or taking at it easy at the seaside in beach areas such as Castiglioncello, San Vicenzo and Baratti. The beautiful, tranquil location of the villa is in close connection with the local nature and the villa has in the past been a home for spiritual healing. The downstairs has a dedicated indoor space for Yoga practice and there are many places to pause for quiet contemplation and reflection.

The sleeping area is completed by a terrace with beautiful views overlooking the Castello dei Vicari.

Park:

The Villa is surrounded by 6 hectares of partly fenced, well-maintained land. From the Villa, given the hilly position, you can enjoy the ever-changing views over the beautiful town of Lari, with its characteristic Castello dei Vicari, with the Appenine mountains in the background behind. The gardens around the pool are a mix of olive and fig trees, lawn and flowers. The property is provided with a video surveillance system and with a manual entrance gate. Beyond the entrance gate there is a private driveway leading to the parking area, located conveniently prior to the side of the villa and close to the entrance, where you will be greeted by an outdoor dining area with a stone table and chairs. Around the house there is a part of level garden adorned with bushes of Mediterranean herbs and fruit trees around the house. The land includes a natural well used for the gardens and the owners use photovoltaic and thermal energy for power and to heat water for the house. Nearby the external living area there is a wood fire oven with grill ideal for pizzas and breads as well as roasted meat. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
