On this antique farm in the municipality of Montespertoli two apartments have been created with great attention to detail. They are located in two different buildings and have a shared prefabricated pool (about 9 m x 4.5 m). It has the shape of an eight and has been so skillfully edged with terracotta tiles that it looks like a swimming pool set into the ground. It lies on a slightly elevated terrace and gives to one side the view into the beautiful landscape and the village free.
For many years, the homeowners have run a ceramics factory, which is reflected today in the choice of beautiful decorations that adorn the walls and shelves of the accommodations. During the restoration and furnishing of the apartments, great care was taken to preserve the rustic, original character.
The location is of course also excellent for trips to the sights of Tuscany. Tourists are spoiled for choice between the famous cities of Florence (28 km away), Siena (55 km away) and Pisa (79 km away), as well as between the smaller, but no less interesting, villages such as Florence, San Gimignano (about 29 km), Volterra (about 50 km) and Greve in Chianti (about 32 km).
You could continue this list of interesting places, because even the completely unknown small mountain villages often hide in their walls art treasures of astounding value.
If you want to visit the sea, pack a picnic basket and drive for about 1.5 hours, either to the beaches of Versilia (between Livorno and Viareggio) or to the coast between Livorno and Cecina Mare.
The kitchen of Tuscany is one of the best in Italy. Many tipical trattorias offer regional specialties. Calorie counting is absolutely forbidden ;-).
