Independent, detached villa in the center of Peccioli, one of the most important and beautiful villages of the Valdera, where history, culture and modern life blend in harmony.
The villa has an entrance to the living area from the ground floor, next to an impressive courtyard. The courtyard is very pleasant; it is filled with trees and benches from where you can admire the beautiful sunsets over the Tuscan hills. On the ground floor is the spacious living room/ dining area with fireplace, vaulted ceilings with terracotta bricks and the nicely fitted kitchen with peninsula, and also on the ground floor is the cloakroom (WC); up to the first floor there is a large hallway with built-in wardrobe, two bedrooms with wonderful views and a bathroom with shower; this floor can also be accessed via an external staircase and balcony. The house is currently used as a holiday home but it is also perfectly functional as a home to live in year round.
Peccioli is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, which was confirmed recently as it was awarded the ‘Bandiera Arancione’ (orange flag status) by the Touring Club Italiano. The streets of Peccioli take on the semblance of a museum of modern art, as the town is encouraging art installations of all forms and championing innovative urban design, already visible in the new elevator with a suspended glass walkway which stretches from the car park to the village centre. The town has a very ambitious aim for 2025: to become the Italian Capital of Culture and it working towards this bid. Peccioli is located in the Valdera region of Central Tuscany, between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees epitomises the Tuscan landscape. The area is scattered with historical towns and medieval villages, castles and country churches and a landscape with golden meadows of wheat dancing in the breeze, vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilisation. Here Andrea Boccelli, the famous tenor, was born and bred and it is in the heart of Valdera, in Lajatico, that the famous Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) where the natural landscape creates a breathtaking setting and in the summer months some of the biggest names in opera come for a special performance. Casciana Terme has thermal waters and spa facilities and is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine. The nearby città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence, making this a perfect base to explore the whole of Tuscany.
