Home Information and Amenities
A romantic place with majestic view surrounded by nature on the Tuscan hills
This beautiful property was built in 1500 and it was utilized as a “Metato”, a litle house used to dry and roast chestnuts. Later It became a farmhouse and its land has mostly been farmed with olive trees ever since. It is located near a beautiful, peaceful village named Cozzile, within nature on the gentle hills above Montecatini Terme, a well known city for its thermal springs and Spas.
The house faces South and it is bathed in sun all year round; it also offers a wonderful view of the valley right through to the Island of Elba. In the past the property was well known in the villages nearby for its well spring, which is still the main source of water for the house. It is said by local people that its water has healing properties.
The garden surrounding the house offers many relaxing spots and sitting areas from where you can enjoy the majestic view.
The farm was totally renovated in 2006 when, a swiss/Italian family, bought it and became Extra Virgin Olive Oil farmers. They renewed it respecting the typical Tuscan style such as the “cotto” floor and the wooden beams but still adding a modern touch, installing solar and photovoltaic panels for hot water and electricity, underfloor heating and a modern electric system.
The 290 mq house is a typical farmhouse surrounded by uncontaminated nature and a lovely romantic garden with local plants such as sage, rosemary, basil, lemon trees, orange tree, thyme, roses, fruit trees (apricots, cherry, pears, figs, pomegranate..) The swimming pool is located on a peaceful area of the garden, surrounded by bamboo and a little pond coloured with water lilies.
Separated from the main house there is a 150 mq garage/storage shed and a 30 mq studio with bathroom.
The main house is composed of 2 floors. On the ground floor there is a main entrance, a kitchen, a studio, a spacious, sunny living room, a service entrance, a bathroom and big boiler/laundry room. On the second floor there are 4 bedrooms, a living-room and a bathroom.
The house is reached via a 700 mt private road.
The 5 hectars of land surrounding the house are cultivated with about 700 olive trees and forest. The olive trees produce about 700l of delicious organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil per year. The forest is a mix of pine, oak, chestnut and acacia trees.
