Set in a valley of its own

Granaio Pisano is a farmhouse very privately set in a valley of its own. A long dirt track of 500 m leads to a mid level position overlooking the valley where the house is located.

The countryside around the building is typical of the lower valley of the Arno river (which crosses Florence and Pisa and flows a few kilometers far from here): surrounding hillocks, covered with woods and with olive tree cultivation, slope gently down to the plain where corn, barley, maize and sunflower are grown.

The main building is laid out on two floors. On the ground floor a very large space, which once housed the stable, has maintained its original size. Now a part of it constitutes the living room another part the dining room. They were not separated in order to maintain unaltered the original size and atmosphere of the room. A solid rustic arch divides the two areas. Two entrances (one from the swimming pool side, the other from the parking side) give access to it. Adjacent to this large space is the kitchen and a double bedroom with en suite shower room.

A staircase leads to the upper floor. At the top of the staircase there is one double bedroom with en suite shower room on the right. On the left is a double bedroom communicating with a room with two bunk beds, the two rooms share a bathroom. Furthermore there is a small sitting room provided with a rustic fireplace and furnished with a sofa. Beside this room there is a fifth bedroom, a twin bedroom with en suite shower room.

The barn, once used as a hay and straw shelter, has been transformed into a playroom. A ping-pong table with equipment is available, and comfortable sitting places to follow from above the game have been drawn from existing structures. The area adjacent to the side closer to the house is covered by a pergola suitable to enjoy al fresco meals.

The pool was built on the side of the Granaio Pisano area where the slope of the hill rendered it possible. It is 14 m long and 3.5 m wide and is framed by peculiar stones of the region. More externally a rustic wooden base surrounds the pool equipped with cushions and deck chairs.

You can do your shopping in Marti (2 km), where there is also a cappuccino bar, a grocery store and a pizzeria. A tobacco shop is 500 meters from the house.

In Monopoli Val d'Arno (4 km) there is a supermarket and a train station with links to Florence, Pisa and Livorno. More frequently trains stop at the Pontedera railway station (10 km).

The slip road to the expressway is only 3 km away, and this freeway (superstrada) takes you quickly to the famous cities full of art or the Tyrrhenian coast with its sandy beaches.

The long sandy beaches near Pisa are around 45 km away. These beaches are quite popular, if you prefer a more exclusive setting, we recommend the chic Versilia region that leads from Viareggio to Massa Carrara (about 80 to 90 km north).

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Pisa 38 km Florence 45 Rome 330 km, DVD (with slot memory cards), Dog welcome, Outdoor dining table for 12 people, Ping-pong table with rackets and balls, Pool: 3.5 x 14m, Portable CD-stereo, Private Chef, Stove with oven, TV (with Italian Sky satellite)
