At the first floor master bedroom with en-suite bathroom (with bathtub and a window), one large second bedroom, a third double bedroom and a second bathroom with a large shower; at the ground floor a reception with fireplace, with separate kitchen/dining area and a third bathroom (with a shower).
The vilage Lajatico is located just 30 minutes drive from Pisa airport along peaceful country lanes, surrounded by the picturesque Tuscan landscape.
A Longobard village Lajatico originally dates from 891, and you can find some real architectural gems among the historic patrician villas perched on the surrounding slopes.
The village is also famous as the birthplace of opera and crossover singer Andrea Bocelli, who performs once a year alongside other international artists at the open-air Teatro del Silenzio nearby. Ville degli Olivi was restored in collaboration with Andrea's architect brother, Alberto Bocelli.
Several excellent restaurants are reachable on foot from the property. A handful of charming local shops where you will soon be greeted by name can supply you with all your needs.
Horseriding and golf facilities are not far away by road.
In addition if you feel like a relaxing day at the beach, you will find several nice beaches at half an hour driving distance.
In winter, why not luxuriate in the salt-rich volcanic waters of nearby Casciana Terme, famous since the Middle Ages as marquess Matilde di Canossa's favourite place to unwind.
Lajatico lies directly on the wine route. The local Valdera area is known as the Chianti Pisano because of the many excellent wine producers to be found among its rolling hills.
Food lovers can enjoy delightful fresh fruit and vegetables direct from the local farms, or try some traditional home cooking at the agriturismo restaurants.
If you want to explore further afield, Florence, Pisa, Siena, Volterra, San Giminiano and Lucca are all less than an hour away you could even pop over for lunch or dinner.
