About the property

5 bedroom villa with beautiful, spacious garden in the Tuscan countryside

This villa located in the peaceful little town of Calci, just outside of Pisa, is a perfect holiday retreat for both families and couples alike. Located at the end of a quiet street, the property in enclosed by a privacy wall with a gated entrance. There is room inside the gate to park a small car, though there is plenty of street parking available as the drive is private to only residents.

Just inside the gate you find the beginning of a wonderful garden that wraps around 3 sides of the home. There are trees providing shade throughout, as well as sunny areas for those who would like to get some sun. A comfortable sitting area complete with several patio chairs and couches is located at the back. There is also a delightful little terrace with a table and chairs where a summer dinner would be much enjoyed. Beyond this terrace and gravel covered sitting area there is a large garden that extends way out into the olive groves. This is a slightly 'wilder' area with many flowering plants and bushes. It would be the perfect spot for kids to have an endless game of tag or hide-and-seek! Families with children have been particularly pleased with the outdoor space and said it was the best part of their holiday. The safe, enclosed space for kids to run free and enjoy the fresh air is a wonderful way for the children to play while the parents relax on the terrace nearby. The owners, grandparents themselves, have taken special care to make the space inviting and comfortable for children. Be sure to look for the secret house beneath the trees!

The inside of the villa is comprised of three floors. On the ground floor there is a nice entryway which to the left leads to a library, complete with a desk, reading chairs and of course plenty of books. To the right of the entry you find a sitting room which leads into another sitting room towards the back of the house. The rooms are large enough that the whole family could gather in one. However it is nice to have two separate areas should each wish to have his or her own space.

Located at the back of the ground floor is a spacious dining room and just off the dining room, the newly renovated kitchen. Also located on the ground floor is a 'cantina', a large storage room where you could store bikes, groceries, strollers, etc. In this room there is also a washing machine and iron and ironing board.

On the second floor of the home you find 3 comfortable bedrooms and a huge bathroom with a classic antique soaking tub. There is also an additional bathroom with a walk in shower.

On the top floor there are two additional bedrooms accommodating an additional 4 people.

Throughout the house you find gorgeous frescos painted on the ceilings. The home is fully furnished and has a complete kitchen.

So sorry for very late review!

We stayed in this beautiful house July 13 - August 16 2014. There was more than enough room for our group (4 Adults and 3 children)

The owners were very thoughtful and helpful during our stay. We explored quite a bit during our stay in Italy. If you ask anyone in my family their favourite place, they will say Calci! We would certainly recommend this property.

I hope to come back very soon.

Amazing backyard scenery

Beautiful spacious house in Calci with antique decor. The backyard is reason enough to stay here. Lovely couple to rent from.

This gorgeous villa is located just steps away from the very important and beautiful Certosa di Pisa (Pisa Charterhouse) in Calci. There is much to see at this historic site, including the Natural History Museum which houses an enormous collection. The museum is interesting for both adults and children with one of the most exciting exhibits being the full whale skeletons on display in a brightly lit hall of windows.

Calci is a quaint little town just 10 km from Pisa. Also nearby is San Giuliano Terme known for its natural spas. Lucca, Florence, Siena, Cinqueterre and the Versilia coast can all be easily reached. The villa is positioned at the end of a lovely, quiet drive. There is little traffic and plenty of privacy.
