Holiday Rental House
Originally built in 1789, the apartment has been carefully modernised to retain many original features, but offer self-contained apartments of high quality. The accommodation consists of two separate apartments on ground and first floor, which can be rented separately or together, sleeping 2 and 5. Both retain the feel of a comfortable holiday Home in Tuscany with a homely atmosphere and fantastic views. Situated in a quiet traditional Italian village where the village folk are pleased to welcome visitors. It is convenient for discovering the delights of the Cinque Terre or the inland market towns. Along with access to Pisa, Florence by rail or car....Originally built in 1789, the apartment has been carefully modernised to retain many original features, but offer self-contained apartments of high quality.
