This large holiday villa is located on the outskirts of the small, antique village Casciana Alta in the municipality of Casciana Terme Lari. The house offers enough space for two unill four families or for 5 couples of friends who would like to spend their holidays together. As it is located on a hill, the large terrace offers a magnificent panorama over the hills of the "Colline Pisane".
The beautiful pool (12 x 6 m) is the center of the extensive garden, in which there is also a play ground for the little holiday guests. The balmy summer evenings are spent on the terrace, eating grilled meat or fish and drinking a glass of good Tuscan wine.
In the cooler season, guests gather in the cozy living room and have fun after a game of pool billiards. The fenced parking that belongs to the house offers space for 5 cars and has an electric entrance gate.
The holidaymakers are very happyf because they can reach the tiny village with its winding streets and the church of San Nicolò from the 16th century on foot (about 350 m). In the morning you get fresh bread and in the evening you can have dinner in the small, rustic pizzeria.
The location is ideal for numerous day trips. Nearby is the thermal bath "Terme di Casciana" (about 3 km), to the famous city of San Gimignano it is about 53 km, to Pisa about 38 km, to Lucca about 48 km, to Florence ca 80 km and to Siena 91 km.
Also worth seeing is the open air theater "Teatro del Silenzio" at Lajatico (about 23 km), which was built in 2006 at the behest of the tenor Andrea Bocelli, who comes from this village. It was called the "Theater of Silence" because only one or two concerts, operas or plays are performed each year, and only in midsummer. After the event, the stage platform and ranks are dismantled and the resulting cone fills with water. The remaining days of the year, this magical place remains in the middle of the Tuscan countryside in a peacful quiet "Silenzio". In July 2019 Andrea Bocelli will give two concerts here.
If you want to reach the coast you can go to Castiglioncello (32 km) o to Vada (ca. 33 km).

Note: Each Italian municipality is free to introduce a so-called "tassa di soggiorno" (tourist tax) for tourists. Since this additional compulsory levy can be levied from one day to the next and also varies from place to place in terms of amount and duration, Toscana Sì can not provide binding information for the time being.
Very nice panoramic location. The small town of Casciana Alta can be reached on foot.
On a neighboring plot below the house is a "Frantoio" (olive oil press). At the time of the olive harvest (depending on the weather from mid-October), a certain noise pollution can not be ruled out.
