The house lies in a sunny position with beautiful surroundings and has striking views onto the tiny old village of Massa e Cozzile.Val di Nievole is a magnificent area located halfway between Lucca and Pistoia and offers lots of day trip possibilities for touring Tuscany. Its location is a good starting point for visiting Firenze, Pisa and Lucca or also for discovering minor centres, among these: Montecatini Terme which is very popular for its healing waters and health spa. Visitors will also find in Montecatini elegant boutiques, a horse race track and a golf court. Nearby there are also charming little hamlets such as Buggiano Castello, Uzzano and Massa e Cozzile: have nice walks and discover delicious restaurants where you can taste local products.

On the front of the house there is a covered veranda with a big wooden table and chairs for dining al fresco while enjoying the gorgeous views. The house is surrounded by a well cared, completely fenced garden, 3000 sqm (mesh wire 1,30 m high) with various flowers and herbs. It is equipped with a beautiful swimming pool prefabricated, partly set in earth (3,80 x 7,90 1,20 m deep) with deck-chairs and sun umbrella for open from the 1ste of May till the end of September.

    Had a stay in Podere L' Istrice

    Het is een avontuur om hier te komen, maar het is het dubbel en dwars waard! De route naar deze prachtige cottage is wat avontuurlijk want het laatste stuk gaat naar beneden dwars door het bos. Bedenkt u zich dat hier ook mensen wonen die dit iedere dag doen en dit heel gewoon vinden. Bent u éénmaal boven; dan wacht er u een klein paradijs met heerlijke stilte, schitterend uitzicht en alle luxe die u nodig heeft.

    Wij gaan hier zeker naar terug.
