The property is located at the outskirts of Chianni, a picturesque little town where the houses are huddled together and narrow stone streets are flanked with shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, are all within walking distance..
Surrounded by chestnut woods and olive groves, Chianni is 350 meters above sea level and has splendid views over the valley below.
Its hidden position has helped to maintain the sense of timelessness and calm, yet it is just 40 minutes drive from Pisa airport. The coastal cities of Castiglioncello and Cecina on the Tyrrhenian coast, or the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi, or the remains of Etruscan and historic towns, such as Volterra, are all within 30 minutes drive.
Chianni is also located just 5 km from Casciana Terme, a historic spa town.
Chianni sits within the area of Valdera in Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees epitomise the Tuscan landscape.
The area is scattered with historical towns and medieval villages, castles and country churches and a landscape with golden meadows of wheat dancing in the breeze, vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization. Here Andrea Boccelli , renowned tenor, was born and it is in the heart of Valdera, in Lajatico, that he created the famous Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) where a natural amphitheatre creates a breathtaking setting. In the summer months he performs alongside some internationally renowned musicians, a concert which attracts a global audience.
Nearby is also Casciana Terme, which has thermal waters and spa facilities and is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine. The città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence and are all within easy reach.
