Fabulously light property, all on one level, restored with a mix old Tuscan style and contemporary finishes, a true jewel, tucked away in a peaceful spot in the centre of the village of Chianni.
This gorgeous apartment combines rustic Tuscan charm with contemporary fittings and finishings, sparkling from the recent restoration. All on one level, the entrance is up a few external steps, through the front door into a lobby and so into a wonderful open plan living room and kitchen. One double bedroom and one bathroom. The best quality fittings, beautiful exposed stone and tiles. Central heating. Also part of the property, on the ground floor below, is a cantina and taverna with an exit directly onto a sweet courtyard, which could be an ideal zone to relax in. A excellent opportunity, ideal to let throughout the summer months but also perfect as a ‘pied a terre’ to explore the surrounding area, taste the exceptional local cuisine or to chat and make friends with the kind local villagers of Chianni.
Chianni is a lovely town in Tuscany with a few nice shops, good coffee bar, a great new bistro and a lovely hotel with small spa (open to non-residents). 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 epitomise the Tuscan landscape. The nearby città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence, each offering splendid art and architecture to admire.
In Lajatico, Andrea Bocelli, the famous tenor, was born and it is in the heart of Valdera that his Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) draws some of the biggest names in opera, when he hosts a summer festival each year in July. The spa town of Casciana Terme, also in the area, has thermal waters and spa which are open to visit and enjoy. It is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine.
