la Antica Casa
Elegant villa on estate in forested hills with shaded houses around
This house is a combination of the antique and the modern, since the current owners decided to start restoring these centuries-old buildings in the late 1960s. The restoration reused as many original materials as possible, which you can still see in the different houses today. They are integrated into the area’s natural setting, which strikes a marvellous balance with the Apennine mountain habitat. If you would like to experience traditional Tuscan ambience then you will certainly enjoy staying here. The culture-rich cities of Lucca, Pisa and Pistoia are an easy daytrip from here. Florence and Siena are a bit farther away. You will find many authentic little mountain villages in the immediate vicinity, which are definitely worth a visit. A swimming pool was installed on the estate for its guests a few years ago, and La Antica Casa has its own aboveground pool as well. This estate will be a great discovery for families with children, as it is situated in the midst of nature with lots of play options for the kids.
