Buti farmhouse description

Our house is a restored farmhouse in the small village of Buti on the eastern slope of Mt .Serra, 30 minutes from Pisa airport and 30 minutes from Lucca. Our front door is next to the ancient castle gate and our back door opens onto our terraced olive groves and grapevines. We are approx 60 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from the sea. We are in the middle of fantastic road and mountain biking and guided rides are available.

There are 5 excellent restaurants within walking distance and another 5 within 10 minutes by car. Buti is a genuine Italian village off the beaten path that has a wonderful small theater (Teatro Francesco Bartolo), and a series of dinners with entertainment (sagre) that are put on by the various neighborhoods (contrade) that culminate in the Palio of San Antonio held each year in January. The Palio is a Horse Race that is highly anticipated and preceded by a wonderful parade in period costumes. Buti is also well known for the high quality extra virgin olive oil produced here for centuries.

The house is located across the street from the old Castle!
Upon entering the main floor, you will find a well equipped kitchen, the dinning and the living area with french doors overlooking the orchard and olive groves.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms with a shared 3/4 bath. Wonderful tall ceilings and windows that open up to a beautiful view.
Downstairs, there is a lovely bedroom with it's own 3/4 bath and french doors that lead out onto a patio. And there is another room with a small kitchenette, a very comfortable sofa bed and a large private bathroom.
There are a couple of terraces where you can enjoy the view, have dinner or sit and read a book.

When owner's are in Buti, from mid September to mid October, we run the house as a Bed and Breakfast. We provide tours of all kinds, by bikes and car, to the Beach or wherever you like to go! write for details!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: We came to Italy after many years in Santa Fe, NM where we designed and built adobe homes. My grandparents were born in Italy at the turn of the last century, then immigrated to the US. We love ancient architecture, language and culture and decided to change our lives. When we bought this house as a fixer upper it was because of the great location, existing ancient olive groves and vineyards and general ambiance. We have become immersed in the rhythm of this village and zone and are happy to share this area with our guests. Diane loves yoga and hiking while I am a passionate road cyclist.

                      Why the Owner Chose Buti:
                      We chose our home because of the style and location. It is a small village surrounded by lovely countryside, very convenient from the airport in Pisa, close to historic cities, the sea, the mountains. One of our favorite things is that we can park our car and go everywhere on foot, grocery shopping, pharmacy, post office, coffee bar and numerous nice restaurants. Also out the door, are great hikes and bike rides!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      For us it is a genuine immersion in a small Italian town, people are friendly and open, there is a living farm, food culture. It is peaceful and quiet with the sound of running water always.
