Mercatale Valdarno farmhouse description

Vasciano is an historic farmhouse, located on a hillside in the lovely, tranquil Niccone Valley. It has been beautifully restored to combine traditional features with modern comforts. The accommodation includes a self-contained flat, never let separately. It is surrounded by 5 acres of terraces, sensitively landscaped gardens, olive groves, fruit trees, & a private pool with spectacular panoramic views. There are 3 outdoor eating areas including a shady pergola & a scented loggia. The house is well furnished, with a fully equipped, recently modernised kitchen, a large dining room and a sitting room, once a small chapel. It offers extensive entertainment resources in the form of books, movies, piano, TV, wi-fi, a games room with snooker/pool, table tennis & darts, & a boules court. It is perfectly located for combining visits to the many historic towns in central Italy with peaceful relaxation in unspoilt rural surroundings.
