Year Purchased: 2008
About: I moved from chaotic Moscow City to a peaceful Medieval town in Tuscany a few years ago. It became my second home and the place I would like to come back to again and again after traveling all around the world. This little village is so charming and genuine that I fell in love with it at first sight.
Why Vicopisano PI, Italy:
Among all the towns around Pisa this was the most genuine and full of history. Close to railway stations and airports, but still very quiet and surrounded by incredibly beautiful landscapes. It's close to mountains as well as to the sea. It's a strategically ideally located property if you want to get easily to Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Livorno, Siena, San Gimignano or Volterra. It will take less than an hour to drive to Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi beaches.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are lucky to be helped by our friends Lorenzo and Marie (seen in the photo) who will be dealing with your booking enquiries and will meet you at the property. They live nearby and know the area really well, so you can rely on them with anything you may need to know about this region.
