In one of the most prestigious locations of the Monte Pisano area, surrounded by a plot of about 36,000 square meters with well-kept olive grove, this former farmhouse with oil mill reminds us that the production of an excellent oil was since past times a characteristic of this area, appreciated since the Medici period and is still appreciated today for its high quality.
You will reach the building along a country road that crosses ancient olive groves dotted with country houses: once passed the iron gate, the country house, with its characteristic yellow ocher walls, appears to us and seems suspended between heaven and earth. The building was originally a convent; 40 years ago it was restored by the present owners. The access to the top floor is through the external staircase: here we find a large and bright living room with two fireplaces and several windows facing south and with sea views, kitchen with terrace, ideal for dining out, while on the opposite side there is a large double bedroom with a magnificent terrace with pergola from which you enjoy panoramic views, and bathroom. An internal staircase leads to the ground floor where there is a living room with fireplace, bathroom and spacious bedroom with access to the garden, while on the opposite side there is a large cellar that can be converted into a third bedroom. The property is surrounded by over 3.6 hectares planted with olive trees, where there are also fruit trees,a small vineyard, two stone pools that gather spring water and a masonry annex, with a mill , Which can be used for grinding the olives.
The Monti Pisani delineate the northern boundary of the province of Pisa, separating it from Lucca. Peaks are not very high but the scenarios are different: gentle slopes and valleys crossed by streams.
The mountains have a vegetation of chestnut and pine trees, while their slopes have different appearance due to the growing of vines and olives.
The long road that runs along the slopes of the Pisan mountains, called simply “lungomonte”, is characterized by small villages and castles, monasteries, churches and ruins of aqueducts.
