The villa, which was the theatre of Lady Lauretta Cipriani's adventurous life, is the perfect accommodation for artists and art lovers. Sleeping and waking up among amazing paintings and in the peaceful and bewitching atmosphere of this house will turn a short break into a dream holiday. The property, which has been included in the list of the most important buildings by the Italian Minister of Culture, is an ideal base to visit the main art cities in Tuscany and to explore the beautiful Tuscan countryside with its lush green hills and its picturesque medieval towns. The sea is only 20 minute driving. A large, gorgeous apartment is provided for guests on the first floor of the villa. It is composed of two beautiful suites: 'The Ladies Retreat' (maximum 3 people) and 'Three centuries of art' (maximum 4 people), which are connected with each other through an internal door. Each suite features a large living room, a double bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom; additional single beds are provided in the living rooms. This apartment is perfect for groups who want to stay together but at the same time keep their own daily habits. A piano, a hi-fi equipment and a Tv with Sky channels are provided in the apartment. The villa benefits from a large garden, equipped with tables, chairs and deck chairs for a peaceful time in the shadow of beautiful old-age trees. Italian kitchen classes and wine tasting are available on request. Bicycles are available for guests, free of charge. Shops, restaurants and cafés, as well as a train station and a bus stop are within walking distance from the property. Golf courses are available in Tirrenia, just 20 minutes driving. Pisa is wellknown for its leaning tower and the amazing Piazza dei Miracoli, which don't need any further description. But there are many other monuments and places which are well worth seeing while walking through the city centre, after having a drink in a stylish café or tasting a real Italian homemade ice cream. Not far from Pisa visit Calci, a nice old town in the country with its beautiful Certosa, S. Miniato (a medieval town with landscapes on Arno valley and countryside), S. Piero a Grado (basilica).In June a festival is held in Pisa, called 'Giugno Pisano' with music, traditional games, exhibitions. On June 16th at night 'Luminaria di S. Ranieri': thousands of candles adorn all the buildings along the river Arno and reflect their shapes on the water; unforgettable! Classical music festival 'Anima Mundi' is held in Pisa monumental cathedral (September-October). Walk on the hills around Pisa among picturesque villages with a superb view over the country up to the sea and the isles. On July 28 and 30 Andrea Bocelli concert at Teatro del Silenzio in Lajatico, just 30 minutes driving form the villa. Taxi service available on demand. * On request, a free car service is available for guests to and from Pisa airport or train station on arrival / departure. More
