First floor apartment in the ‘centro storico’ (the historic centre) of pretty Chianni, set in an historical building and with a private entrance. The property comprises: staircase, entrance into large living room with fireplace and a good kitchen, central passage room, and large bedroom plus a bathroom. The panoramic balcony, overlooking Volterra, has access from the living room and the central room and is a wonderful feature of the property.
The property is in need of renovation and has excellent potential due to its location and the brightness and size of the rooms. It has a private parking space and there is a small ‘cantina’ (store room) on the ground floor in the basement.
L’Architrave can put you in touch with a local geometra who can help to plan and carry out any work, with a great team of builders.
Chianni offers several shops, pizzeria, two restaurants, bank, bars, and many local festivals throughout the year. Chianni is a pretty, well-kept town with stone houses and narrow cobbled streets full of red geraniums. It is surrounded by walnut and olive trees. In Chianni you can do the most varied activities: from cooking classes, painting courses, Italian language courses, wine tastings, olive oil and other local products, walks in the woods, Vespa excursions, guided tours in the surrounding historical villages, golf and more.
The airport of Pisa, the sea at Castiglioncello and Cecina and the golf clubs of Pisa and Castelfalfi and also the famous Etruscan ruins of Volterra are all within an easy distance. The lovely ancient spa town of Casciana Terme is particularly worth visiting as the thermal spa has been fully refurbished and is open to visitors.
