Property Overview

Beautiful, authentic and spacious two/three bed property retaining the characteristics of the original, old oil mill with rustic and welcoming charm. Set in the foothills of the Monti Pisani, between Pisa and Lucca in Tuscany. Exceptional.

The entrance is into the large open space living room, with high ceilings, fireplace and the millstone which is exactly as it was in the last century. Tuscan brick arches divide the living room and dining area from the bright kitchen with two large windows. Next to the kitchen there is another room with a small second kitchen/utility room with the washing machine. A stone staircase leads to a mezzanine area and up to the first floor where there is a large central room, a second living area, or occasional bedroom, with exit to a wooden terrace from where you then enter the large garden. Steps down to the pretty stream. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a large bathroom with bath and shower. There are many corners in the garden that allow you to enjoy the beautiful days and the privacy of the place and its position is protected from the winds, forming a true oasis of peace in the midst of nature, and yet the spot is not isolated. Private parking. Mains gas central heating. Wood burning stoves and pellet stuffa.

The lovely village nearby has cobbled lanes and interlinking arches with olive clad hillsides and woodland for some beautiful walks through the countryside. There is a shop and cafe in the village and the nearby village of Calci has a selection of shops, restaurants and a nice patisserie. Excellent location with hill walks and pathways from the village to the surrounding hills through the olive groves. The cultural centres of Tuscany are all within easy reach.

Calci lies at the foot of the Monti Pisani, a small mountain range which divides Pisa from Lucca, in the green Valgraziosa valley. This mountain is dotted with historical villages, medieval castles and Romanesque churches and it is characterised by terraced olive groves. The town is on the slopes of the Monti Pisani, on the side which faces Pisa. The area is full of marked walking trails with spectacular views towards the sea and the mild climate means that great trekking is available year round. Of particular interest in Calci is the Calci Charterhouse, the Certosa di Pisa, which is a monumental Baroque building, once a Carthusian monastery and now housing an important Natural History Museum with a collection from the University of Pisa.

The Monti Pisani are well known for the high quality extra virgin olive oil and there are many opportunities to sample and purchase this local speciality. The spectacular Chestnut Festival takes over Calci each year in October when it is possible to taste hand-prepared traditional chestnut cake, as well as a host of other great local produce. Calci has a selection of shops, excellent restaurants and a nice patisserie. This is a truly excellent location. The cultural centres of Tuscany are all within easy reach, with Lucca just 20 minutes and Pisa airport in a very short hop. There is the famous ancient thermal spa at San Giuliano Terme reachable in only 10 minutes. The elegant town of Lucca with beautiful piazzas and spectacular surrounding walls, is on your doorstep. Lazy summer days at the anfiteatro, or cycling around the ancient city walls, or an evening at the many concerts of the Lucca Summer Festival are just waiting to be enjoyed. The Leaning Tower, the River Arno and all the other beauties of Pisa are almost within touching distance. All the art, architecture and treasures of Tuscany are within easy reach to be admired time after time.

Distances: Calci 3 km, San Giuliano Terme 10 km, Pisa (airport) 15 km, Lucca 25 km, Marina di Pisa 25 km, Livorno 30 km, Viareggio (beaches) 35 km, Volterra 60 km, San Gimignano 70 km, Florence 80km.
