Beautiful detached 2 bedroom cottage in the Tuscan countryside.

Part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, Casina is a beautiful, detached cottage set amongst vineyards and olive groves with superb views to the surrounding countryside and some hilltop villages in the distance. It is surrounded by a completely fenced-in private garden with garden furniture and barbecue, and there will be a new round pool (approx. 4m in diameter) built for the 2016 season. The cottage belongs to the Badia di Morrona wine estate and they offer guests tastings of the estate wine. A good restaurant which belongs to the estate, is just over half a mile away and serves delicious typical Tuscan meals.

The area is ideal for exploring central Tuscany and Florence, Lucca, Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano are all within easy driving distance as well as the coast at Tirrenia or Livorno, and there are ample opportunities for eating out in local restaurants. There is also a good train service from Pontedera if you prefer to have a day out without using your car. A handy local supermarket is just five minutes drive away. For leisure pursuits, tennis courts are available in Ponsacco, a golf course can be found at Castelfalfi and horse riding is also availabile in the grounds of Badia di Morrona.

The accommodation of approximately 110sqm falls over two floors. The entrance from the garden into a large open room, is divided into a comfortable sitting area with sofas, open fireplace, satellite TV and dining area with a large dining table. At the end of the room there is a well-equipped open kitchen with fridge/freezer, hob and electric oven and dishwasher. On the ground floor, there is also a storeroom with a washing machine.

A wide stone staircase leads up to two cosy bedrooms: one double with a canopied bed, the other with twin beds. Both bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom with shower, basin, bidet and wc.

The property is tastefully furnished and there are wooden beams and terracotta floors throughout.

Please Note: For larger groups of 20+4 people wishing to holiday together, it would be ideal to book this property together with La Selva, a large farmhouse just 50m away.
