In the garden there is an outside eating area and a large swimming pool. We bought and restored the house in 2002, including specially commissioned furniture such as a massive four poster bed. There is parking for three cars at the front of the house as well as a shrine to the Virgin Mary. There are many festivals in the area, which guests can attend as well as the many beautiful Tuscan towns and villages in the localityMore

About the neighbourhood
Dezza Alta, where the house is, is part of a string of pretty villages. Just along from us is Colognora (where they shoot movies when a typical Italian village is needed) and the Celle di Puccini (where the composer Puccini;s mom lived and so did he for a while) A bit north is the beautiful hill top town of Barga with it's old city and monumental church with 360 degree views. There are lots of good restaurants nearby; specialist shops, a bank and a few supermarkets.Sports wise there is golf, tennis, fishing, and so on.
Getting around
You need a car to get around the area. To get to Florence, Pisa etc you could also take a train
