Beautiful two level apartment, with pretty garden, set on the lovely old ‘borgo’ of Vicopisano.
Beautifully restored village apartment, of 75 sqm, on two levels, with pretty garden and private parking set in the ancient ‘borgo’ (village lane) of Vicopisano.
The main entrance is from the cobbled lane of the village, into a spacious living room with fireplace. Beyond is a large double bedroom, with large windows and a modern bathroom. Downstairs there is a lovely open kitchen/dining room with glass double doors which opens onto another quiet village lane. This room has exposed stone and a well equipped, recently installed kitchen. The house has been restored with great care and attention to detail, retaining the Tuscan features of brick arches, exposed stone, terracotta floors and fireplace.
Just a few steps from the house is the spacious garden, 250 sqm, with stone wall, part lawned and part with hard standing for a terrace area and parking. This garden has a beautiful view over the village and is a perfect place to spend the early evening with an aperitivo, or to invite friends for a barbecue.
Vicopisano has a warm atmosphere, is steeped in history and is one of the prettiest Tuscan villages. There are a number of coffee bars, some great restaurants and, famously, 12 medieval towers. Wandering through the narrow streets is like stepping back to the Middle Ages. The village is set between the River Arno and Mount Pisano and the history tells the story of Florentine domination. The fortress of Brunelleschi, the famous Florentine architect, the walkway del Soccorso, the old walls and abundance of towers form the very heart of the village.
Vicopisano is a living village, which celebrates many festivals throughout the year. The Medieval Festival which takes place on the first weekend of September is a highlight. During this weekend Vicopisano is full of medieval jousting, musicians and street theatre. In the lanes and alleys you will meet characters from ancient times, you have the opportunity to taste the spiced wine, browse among the stalls and dine among the different taverns or even at the Praetorian Palace on the occasion of the Medieval Dinner, which is served on the top of the hill.
