Main Features

Description

Elegant period property (275 sqm), set at the entrance to a very picturesque village with central piazza and cobbled lanes, cafes, restaurants and shops with panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside.

This is a beautiful and elegant property in an historical building with many stunning original features. Immense character with original floors, beams and frescoes on ceilings and walls this very elegant property offers the chance to own some of the Italian heritage and history. The property comprises the first and second floors of an elegant palazzo building in Palaia, together with a beautiful garden. The ground floor of the building does not form part of this sale. The building is accessed through a large, wooden front door which leads into a large entrance hall with marble stairs leading to the apartments above.

Entrance is into a fitted kitchen/dining area, and original doors open onto a living room. There are two bedrooms, one with columns, and bathroom on this level so this is effectively a self-contained 2 bed apartment. Upstairs there is a further kitchen with open fire range, bathroom and four further rooms. This upper level requires restoration work so it could connect to the lower floor, or it could operate as a self-contained unit. The apartments are connected to main services and with central heating and fireplace. We have been told that the building has recently benefited from a new roof.

To complete this beautiful property there is a garden accessed from the lane and through a wooden door in a stone wall into a private walled garden with one of the best views in Tuscany. The grass garden has sweet smelling orange and lemon trees and there is a small outbuilding for storage.

Palaia is a historic town in the area of Valdera in Central Tuscany, steeped in tradition and where you can still visit the old olive press, the antique wine cellars and the rooms where the olive oil was stored in large terracotta vases. Mainly an agricultural area, Palaia has a colorful history which can be seen at the Interactive museum in the town. In the countryside around Palaia some of the best produce of Tuscany is grown with excellent wines, olive oil and white truffle. The restaurants offer traditional Tuscan cuisine and the markets offer a true feel of the Tuscan heritage. There are shops, bars, restaurants, banks and post-offices in the town.

The town is located in 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 was born and bred and it is in the heart of Valdera in Lajatico that the famous Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) where natural landscape creates a breathtaking setting and in the summer months some of the biggest names in opera come for a special performance. Casciana Terme has thermal waters and spa facilities and is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine.
