Property description

The house is conveniently located 40 minutes from the Pisa International Airport, a little over one hour from Florence and Siena, and 20 minutes from the famous Etruscan city of Volterra, as well as an hour from the sea, it still remains a well preserved area of Tuscany, away from tourist crowds. The house offers very spacious living-room and dining room (former stable) with spectacular views overlooking the hills and the fields. A fully-equipped kitchen including a dinner table and cabinets, a dishwasher, a stove top and oven, two refrigerators, a freezer and a pantry, 5 fully furnished bedrooms (each with different views of the countryside) which accommodate up to 10 people+a loft with 3 beds, 3 full bathrooms with showers, and one with a bathtub as well, an extra half- bath on the ground floor, a living room in the upstairs area, a large swimming pool, a laundry room equipped with washer, well isolated thick Tuscan walls, mosquito' s screens in all room


When we came upon our house, named by the local peasants either 'Campo della Donna' (camp of the woman) or 'the Leonardo Da Vinci house' (for its simple and perfect proportions), we could not resist embarking on this fabulous adventure. Conveniently located 45 minutes from the Pisa International airport, a little over one hour from Florence and Siena, and 20 minutes from the famous Etruscan city of Volterra, as well as an hour from the sea, it still remains a well preserved area of Tuscany, away from tourist crowds. An ancient farmhouse (Casa Colonica), it has been restored to meet all our present day needs, while preserving the original feeling of a Tuscan home. We used only local and genuine construction material: all the floors are in terracotta tiles, kitchen sink and counter top are Travertino, stairs and window sills are Pietra Serena, traditional Tuscan ceilings made of bricks and beams, and most of the furniture is regional.

The location of the Campo della Donna, near the village of Lajatico, is amazingly convenient. While situated in the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by hills and fields as far as the eye can see, it remains at the crossroads of many cultural points of interest. It is 45 minutes away from the Pisa International airport, a little over an hour from Florence and Sienna, 30 minutes from San Gimignano, 20 minutes from the Etruscan city of Volterra, and an hour from the sea. Among the many regional spas, you can find one of the oldest in Europe, Montecatini terme, only a little over an hour drive away. If you don't feel like driving, the region offers very enjoyable local sightseeing, such as breathtaking walks that will take you through the countryside and well-preserved villages. Lajatico itself is the birthplace of the world renowned opera and popular music singer, Andrea Boccelli. Since 2006, he has launched there an annual open-air festival, Il Teatro del Silenzio.
