Crespina farmhouse description

Bring the extended family or a group to Tuscany accommodation, with a shared swimming pool and charming garden areas. This ex-farmhouse has been lovingly restored with attention to detail throughout, combining traditional Tuscany style with modern minimalism. Take a drive on picturesque roads past quaint hilltowns and spend your days in Livorno, Pisa, Lucca and Florence. Relaxing at your Tuscany vacation rental, watching the sun set with a glass of fine wine in your hand---it just doesn’t get much better than this!
Built in 1866, this simple ex-farmhouse has been carefully restored and renovated. A driveway through cypress trees leads up to the hilltop property with lovely country views of wheat fields and sunflowers. Wander around the large flowering garden and fragrant lemon trees and use the pizza oven or barbecue for ‘al fresco’ dining. There is a marble table with seating for 15 near the farmhouse and a shared swimming pool (10m x 5m) with a patio and chairs. There is plenty of outdoor parking.
(450 m2) Main House: Ground floor: Designed in Tuscan country style, the villa’s furnishings are inviting and tastefully minimal.

                      Location

                      This simple farmhouse is located in the Tuscany countryside near the village of Lorenzana. Lorenzana has several bars, a food store, post office, restaurants and a pharmacy. From the farmhouse, a bus stop 800 meters away will take you into Pisa and Livorno. Livorno is a seaside town with excellent seafood restaurants. From Livorno, a 15 km drive down the coast will take you into Quercianella and Castiglioncello, lovely coastal villages with shops and wonderful seafood restaurants. Within daytrip distance is Pisa-- known, of course, for its famous leaning tower. Next to the tower there is also the Cathedral of Pisa, completed in 1350. Of course, the tower isn't the only thing in town. Poetry lovers will want to visit Shelley's house and Lord Byron's palace (now the City Archive). There is also a medieval town, the house of Galileo, and countless restaurants, cafes, and...gelato! Volterra is a regional gem where you can truly capture that hilltown experience in full. From the characteristic main piazza to its Roman ruins, Volterra has something from every century all the way back to Etruscan times. Wander along the Etruscan walls, dating from the 4th century BC, or purchase your own alabaster memento in a nearby shop. Visit museums, admire the exterior of a 15th century fortress, or lounge in the Piazza dei Priori, one of the best town squares in the region-- and the site of many historic and often bloody events. There's plenty more to see and do in Volterra, but naturally we also recommend taking a few day trips into Lucca, Florence or Siena. Nearby Attractions: Lorenzana (bars, food store, post office, restaurants, pharmacy), Livorno (sea, restaurants), Pisa (leaning tower, Cathedral of Pisa, Shelley's house, Lord Byron's palace, house of Galileo, restaurants, cafes), Volterra (4th century Etruscan walls, alabaster, museums, 15th century fortress, Piazza dei Priori), Lucca, Florence, Siena.
