                  Car: Necessary

                  Casciana Terme lies in the heart of the Pisan Hills, close enough to the Coast for daily beach trips and with its over one thousand years of history it is one of the many small masterpieces that the people of Tuscany have helped to build and to preserve over the centuries. Hard-working friendly people, a cuisine which preserves the authentic quality of the local products, a landscape of vineyards producing wines of quality above suspicion and olive oil of light and fresh taste. SPA, which comes from the Latin: 'Salus per Aquam', health and beauty through water, the thermal water used at Casciana Terme since ancient times, which is only 2.5 km from the Villa, has in recent years seen its applications extended to modern rehabilitation therapies, cardiovascular and respiratory treatment, in the improvement of the digestive functions and their treatment, because its natural, relaxing action enables patients to regain their functional equilibrium and the enjoyment of pleasures they had lost.

                  Golf course and SPA are very close to complete a relaxing stay for beauty and health with breathtaking views onto Volterra, rolling hills with changing colours throughout the year. Earth, ground and Terra taken care of Tuscan hands.

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: I am an international developer and have lived in many places over the world, like Indonesia, America, Holland, France etc., my wife and I enjoy travelling, good food, very good wines, our family with grand children around us.

                  Why Casciana Terme:
                  We fell in love with this location, it felt so good to touch this ground. It gave us the freedom and feeling close to civilization as the town is only about 2 km from home. We restored it with all our dream come true philosophy respecting the comfort we are used to back in Northern Europe. It was time to look for a second home, which feels like a home and is easy to reach and to care for.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  The complete freedom of open views 360 degrees, the private pool, the olive grove and last not least the elevator even if it is only for the first and last floor. Last not least the marvellous garden, which is taken care of by professionals and you can see it.
