Set in Chianni, a pretty, well-kept and perfectly Tuscan town, decorated with pots of red geraniums and full of cobbled narrow lanes which open onto intimate little piazzas with stunning churches around every corner. The ancient little town rises above the rolling Tuscan hills, so there are open views in all directions. There are good services including shops, banks, restaurants, post office, friendly cafes and interesting events throughout the year. The most important of these are the olive oil festival and the wild boar festival. With a good, friendly bistro in the village piazza, local pizzeria and a choice of restaurants there is a busy community, both Italian and international in this popular village. Pontedera is an interesting town and has the main train station on the Pisa- Florence line, good road links and supermarkets. There is a sense of timelessness and calm in Chianni, yet it is only 40 minutes from Pisa airport.

The surrounding area is beautiful and a perfect base from which to explore Tuscany. Near Chianni it is an easy drive to the pretty village of Lari, with an ancient castle and then on to the beautiful town of Casciana Terme, famous for thermal waters with a newly renovated spa with indoor and outdoor pools. Casciana Terme is dominated by another castle, with a beautiful central piazza and since Roman times it has been famous for the curative warm waters. Today it is a bustling town with a busy weekly market and great shops and restaurants and a famous theatre. It is halfway between the famous hilltop village of Volterra and the splendors of Pisa.

The coastal cities of Castiglioncello and Cecina, the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi, and the historic towns of Volterra and San Gimignano are all within easy reach, and each make a wonderful day out. The old town of Livorno is close too, with rocky beaches and a maze of canals to discover by boat and from where it is possible to hop on the ferry to relax in the gentle pace of beach life on the island of Elba. The nearby città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence, each offering splendid art and architecture to admire. The rolling hills in between, dotted with medieval villages and castles, and with lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees epitomize this Tuscan landscape. In Lajatico, Andrea Bocelli, the famous tenor, has his Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) which draws some of the biggest names in music and opera when he hosts a spectacular summer festival in July. There is so much to discover in Tuscany. Pisa airport in 30-40 mins.
