Magical organic farm nestling between the majestic mountain ranges of the Appenines and Apuan Alps in northern Tuscany and surrounded by green fields and woodland. Lovely swimming pool (12m x 6m).
The two farm buildings have been converted into rental accommodation comprising a detached 3 bedroom cottage and 3 apartments. Each property has its own private eating terrace, outdoor oven, and BBQ.
“The Stables” - A newly and very sympathetically converted detached barn with 3 bedrooms (2 double, and 1 twin), and 2 pristine shower rooms. The house has been carefully restored, and is decorated in a rustic style, boasting an open fire, and beamed ceilings throughout. Comfortable living room/dining room.
“The Cicada” (upstairs) and “Tapinoma” (downstairs) - Beautiful stone cottage comprising two newly converted 2 bedroom apartments each with its own entrance. The apartments are rustic in style with open fires, & beamed ceilings and have kitchen, lounge and shower room. There is also a 3rd apartment, “The Cricket” with 2 bedrooms, kitchen/diner and shower room.
The nearby village of Nicciano has a café which also sells basic provisions.
Just 5 minutes drive takes you to the centre of Piazza al Serchio, which provides all day to day shopping and services as well as a weekly open air market and a swimming pool. Piazza al Serchio is on the main Pisa/Lucca to Aulla train line.
Between Nicciano and Piazza al Serchio, just over 1 km away in the village of San Michele, there is a very good traditional pizzeria.
The farm is about 1 hour 10 minutes from Lucca and 1 hour 40 minutes to Pisa by car (and a bit less by train). The local ski resort of Careggine is a 20 minute (more extensive skiing in Abetone - 1 hour 15 minutes) drive while the coast (Lerici) is just over an hour away.
A short way away is the beautiful Orecchiella National Park, well known for its uncrowded trails and byways from which visitors can enjoy the local wildlife and flora. These include royal eagles, royal owls, hawk, deer and the recently re-introduced rams and wolves.
