"Lovely, rustic two bed stone house set in a medieval village, with garden and wonderful views in an antique medieval village.
Beautiful two bed house (180 sqm) in an ancient stone building which has been renovated with a light touch to retain all the original charm and character. The property is set on an ancient 'borgo', the medieval lane running through the village. The property is in very good condition and the renovation has maintained the appearance of the traditional Tuscan home with terracotta and graniglia flooring, wooden beams and cotto tiles for the ceilings.
The entrance leads to the kitchen - living room with large fireplace, bedroom and modern bathroom. Downstairs lead to a bedroom with a large walk-in cupboard with potential to convert to another bathroom. There is also a room with access to the garden which can be used as a bedroom or as a second living area.
The pretty garden (250 sqm) has a panoramic view over the surrounding Tuscan country side and a large stone patio area with vine pergola, perfect for dining 'al fresco'. Outbuilding to restore.
The heating works with the use of geothermal energy at very low cost. All services are connected.
Valdicecina an easily accessible area, charming and mysterious, a combination of history, culture and excellent cuisine.
Castelnuovo Val di Cecina is a small medieval village in the heart of Tuscany, south of Pisa, on the border between the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Grosseto, at an altitude of 576 metres. The town has ancient origins dating back to the thirteenth century and the village has preserved the charm and is full of antique features.
The antique village is unique for its shape of a bunch of grapes, with a layout of a medieval town, erected on a sandstone, with silent, bare alleys and tiny piazzas.
Coming from the medieval Castelnuovo, the town streets are flanked with small shops and local cafes, bank, post office. Modern life and amenities are all within walking distance.
The countryside extends from the mountains to the east, through the vineyards terraced on the low hills and down to the Mediterranean scrub with pine woods and brooms to the west. The golden hills are planted with orchards, vineyards and olive groves.
There are hot thermal springs with spa baths in little villages or woods and steam vents puff through the hills.The hot waters are piped to the little towns and villages so the homes are heated virtually free of charge.
Away from the busy tourist locations and yet within easy reach of the cultural centres.
Castelnuovo is the place to be for nature enthusiasts: from the town, there is a variety of different nature trails through enchanting historic sites, such as a bridge crossing the Pavone torrent or the scenic vista of the Val di Cornia and the Gulf of Piombino.."
