What makes this Farmhouse unique
Campolungo offers peace and tranquility in a beautiful setting of pine covered hills and olive groves and is the perfect setting for those looking to experience a Tuscan rural lifestyle with comfort and charm. Despite being situated in a tranquil location away from it all the property is also ideally located in the heart of Tuscany within easy travelling to Pisa, Lucca, Florence and other must see places in Tuscany. Due to Campolungo's hilltop location the air is always cool and refreshing in the Summer months however it doesn't stop us heading the the beach just 30 minutes away if we feel we would like a day by the sea. The uniqueness of Campolungo is that it is actually 3 homes in one as the farm house has been split into 3 separate apartments. Each apartment has its own bathroom/s and kitchen offering guests a chance of independence and privacy as well as the chance to come together as a family or group of friends. The charming Medieval village of Vicopisano is close by and for those who love to explore the countryside, hike or mountain bike there are trails and pathways leading from the farm house down to the village.
