The Thyrrenian sea is just 31 km away, while the highway A12 and Pisa with its Airport are respectively 20 and 33 km away.
A location of particular interest is represented by the SPA of Casciana Terme (6 km) that is just a few minutes drive away.

The current owners have looked for many years for their ideal dwelling in the ideal location and eventually they fell in love with the charm of Villa delle Baccanti. They are fond of historic restoration, having a strong experience in this field, they have dedicated some years to the villa renovation.
Thanks to the passion and meticulous care of details, the villa is nowadays back to its splendour with its frescoes*, the old cotto paved floors, the park, the tree-lined alley.
Everything is in perfect condition (only the attic is still used as a storage room) and the villa is livable straightaway.
Some of the frescoes have been painted by the Ademollo, important artist of the 18th century.
Ademollo seems to be the same painter who has accomplished the paintings in one of the halls in the Ducal Palace of Lucca and in the Royal Palace of Pisa.
Fenced trimmed alleys border the shape of the private Park that is about one hectare wide within which century old trees and forest trees have found their space and a wide stone pond-fountain is used to cool down during summer.
Usage and potential
Villa delle Baccanti, secluded yet close to a village, with its classical style, its historic features and its large surface, is ideal as private or stately dwelling, only half an hour drive from the sea, Pisa and its Airport.
