Immaculate 2/3 bed apartment (120 sqm) on the first floor of a village house where there is potential to create a terrace (3.3 m x 1.6 m). The house is entered into a well kept communal entrance hall, shared only with one other apartment. The accommodation is all on one level. L’Architrave can introduce you to a Geometra to project manage the works for the terrace. Wonderful fitted kitchen featuring a glass topped island and large dining space featuring a large open wood burning fireplace. Wooden beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and stone arches. A few steps down lead to a cosy sitting room. There are two large double bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and an additional studio room, with wooden floor, which could be used as a third bedroom. On the ground floor is a laundry room and cantina (store room) with direct access from the street.
This lovely house is in the centre of a quiet Tuscan village and within walking distance of amenities. Terricciola is set between the valleys of the River Era and the town of Cascina, and the Sterza stream. It is in between Pisa and Florence in an area with pretty hilltop villages including Morrona, Soiana, La Rosa, Selvatelle, La Chientina and Soianella which are all wonderful to explore. This colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and tall cypress trees epitomise the Tuscan dream. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization.
Terricciola is known as the ‘City of Wine’ for the rich and fertile soil ideal for cultivating grapes. In September each year The Festa dell’Uva e del Vino (Grape and Wine festival) is held. This offers an excellent opportunity to taste some of the best wines of the region and people come from all over the region to enjoy this special occasion. There are many other festas in the area including the Spring Fair in La Rosa in May, the Festa dell’allegria (Feast of Joy) in Morrona and the Strawberry Festival in Terricciola in July, the Notte Bianca (White Wine Night) in August and the Calici di Stelle (drinks under the Stars) in Terricciola.
