The property is located in Chianni, a picturesque little town where the houses are huddled together and narrow stone streets are flanked with shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, are all within walking distance. Chianni is a pretty Tuscan town with splendid views over the valley below, surrounded by chestnut woods and olive groves. Its hidden position has helped to maintain the sense of timelessness and calm, yet it is just 40 minutes from Pisa airport. The coastal cities of Castiglioncello and Cecina on the Tyrrhenian coast, and the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi, Volterra and San Gimignano are all within 30 minutes.
Chianni sits within the area of 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 which epitomise 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 , renowned tenor, was born and it is in the heart of Valdera, in Lajatico, that he created the famous Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) where a natural amphitheatre creates a breathtaking setting. In the summer months he performs alongside some internationally renowned musicians, a concert which attracts a global audience. Nearby is also Casciana Terme, a traditional spa town with thermal waters and spa facilities with pretty piazzas and medieval churches at every turn through the narrow cobbled streets.
