Pretty two bed apartment (70 sqm) on the second floor of an historical building in Chianni, an enchanting Tuscan village just 40 minutes from Pisa and the coast.
The apartment has been completely renovated and is currently used for seasonal rentals, with excellent income, but equally it would make a lovely home or holiday place. Much in demand for its central location in the village and for the ease of being able to move easily to visit the countless and interesting Tuscan cities and villages.
The entrance is from the main ‘portone’ door on the ground floor, into a large, impressive atrium. It consists of a large living room with pellet stove, a rustic and very characterful kitchen and two double bedrooms plus a modern bathroom with shower. The apartment is available immediately and it is ready to be inhabited,
There is no heating system, because it is used during the season, from April to October, although this can easily be installed with heat pumps.
The views are lovely in every direction, looking over the open Tuscan countryside and olive groves, yet the property is within the heart of the pretty town of Chianni. Chianni is a lovely town in Tuscany with some nice shops, good coffee bars a great new bistro and a lovely hotel and restaurant with small spa. It is just 40 mins from Pisa airport. The coastal cities of Castiglioncello and Cecina on the coast, the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi, and the historic towns of Volterra and San Gimignano are all close by, and each make a wonderful day out. The town is located in Valdera in Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills is dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees, all of which epitomizes the Tuscan landscape. Chianni is a vibrant little place and there are many activities on offer: cooking classes, painting classes, italian language classes, tasting of wine, oil and other typical products, hill walking, Vespa tours on the hill roads, guided tours to the historical localities in the area, golf and much more.
