Full description:

The perfect place to escape from the hectic daily life and immerse yourself in the absolute peace of this enchanted castle, once the scene of important stories and adventures, of ladies with long dresses, knights and horses, nuns and monks.

Within an hour's drive of Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano, Siena and Lucca or the Tuscan Coast , this quiet and cosy apartment with scenic views, is an excellent base from which to reach the most wonderful and interesting sites in Tuscany.

A spacious one bedroom apartment measuring about 50 sqm, south facing, on the first floor of a charming antique restored monastery.

The apartment looks straight down the beautiful Val d'Era to the hilltop village of Peccioli. It comprises a sitting room with a panoramic window opening onto the magnificent Magnolia tree and the stone paved square with views over the countryside and the small hamlets spread over the hill tops, a separate equipped kitchen, one bedroom and one bathroom with window.

The complex includes a shared swimming pool with views down the valley and communal gardens.

Beyond being the perfect home to relax and enjoy fantastic holidays in Tuscany, it is also an excellent opportunity as investment as it is a very appealing apartment for letting during spring and summer.

The restoration of the complex took place a few years ago and was one of the most important renovations in the area. The complex was originally a medieval castle, then it was turned into a monastery and lastly a farm with 'Frantoio' (olive mill), barns and the elegant frescoed villa, the manor house of the estate owners.
Terracotta flooring, double glazed wooden windows.

This complex stands in the middle of an area that joins the natural beauty of the hills and landscapes with the historical and cultural interests of one of the most beautiful place of Italy.
30 km to Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano, San Miniato and Livorno with the spectacular Tirreno coasts and the magnificent cliffs of Quercianella and Castiglioncello.
This property is an excellent base for exploring Northern and Central Tuscany.
The hamlet is a short distance from the village of Forcoli with its cafes, local shops and banks. The medieval village of Palaia 15 minutes' away and every year is the stage of a traditional Medieval Festival.
