The mild climate of the places, the absolute privacy, and the non-isolated context make it an ideal home to be lived in all year round, whether for private use or high-profile rentals. Many religious, civil, and military testimonies make Lerici and its surrounding places of great historical and artistic interest: from the village's foundation in the Etruscan era to the role of a natural port in Roman times, to become a strategic landing place during the Maritime Republic of Genoa. And then under the Napoleonic domination, until it became the province of Sardinia and then part of the Kingdom of Italy from 1861. The history of Lerici and the Gulf of La Spezia links with three of the greatest writers of English Romanticism: Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Mary Shelley. In 1822 the Shelleys took up residence at Villa Magni, a small house with arches on the beach of the fishing village of San Terenzo Lerici. Thanks to the presence of the Shelleys, it soon became a point of attraction for the lively colony of English writers and exiles. The tumultuous events of the young romantics who stayed in Lerici have always exerted a strong appeal on writers and poets. Many have come almost on pilgrimage to this magnificent bay. Prominent names include Charles Dickens, George Sand, David Herbert Lawrence, Henry James, Gabriele D'Annunzio, and Virginia Woolf.   Today, the local economy focuses on tourism, favored by the natural beauty of the area and by the presence of a seaside coastline accessible and the beauty of the places of interest.

Its construction in the 1950s was the work of the famous architect Giovanni Michelucci, a figure of great importance in modern, Italian, and international architecture of the 1900s. The style of the building is considered a successful example of the insertion of modern architecture in an urban context of high historical value. All this is evident from many technical construction details of the building (the stone cladding, the large Florentine-style roof) and, above all, from the cutting of the apartments and commercial funds inspired by the fascinating house-workshop relationship of the medieval tradition. Even today, in the 165 square meters of this large apartment,  it is re-proposed the ancient functional distribution of the interior spaces on two separate levels (the first one once dedicated to working (artisan or commercial) and the second one to private residential use). The two levels are large, open, and bright.   Interior spaces On the first level:
  • entrance and large bright living room with great views,
  • kitchen,
  • bath,
  • balcony.
  On the second level:
  • two large double bedrooms
  • two bathrooms
  • study
  • balcony.
  The style of the interiors, the choice of finishes, and furniture are in total harmony with the construction style of the time. The result of the reinterpretation is of great style and elegance. The apartment is on the third floor and has a lift. A cellar on the ground floor completes the property.   Equipment of the apartment.
  • Independent heating system
  • Double glazing
  • Air conditioning
    Outdoor spaces. The apartment has south-east-facing balconies overlooking Guicciardini street, a road connecting two magnificent places in the historic City, such as Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Pitti. It is a privileged position in the Oltrarno district that allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of Renaissance Florence from your windows.

Recently redeveloped and donated to the City, it has become a space open to all to enhance children's cultural, musical, and high craftsmanship projects and workshops. A small oasis where you can enjoy a pleasant stop just a stone's throw from Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Della Passera.     Why buy this property in Florence.

Houses for sale near Volterra, Italy: the best of the Tuscan hills

  This property is in the heart of Tuscany, 3 kilometers from Montaione, in the province of Florence. It dates back to the early twentieth century. It was completely renovated in 1990, immersed in a soft hill overlooking the valley that unites the extraordinary towns of San Gimignano and Certaldo and then again Volterra.   The property, now used as a holiday residence, is configured as a small and charming rural hamlet consisting of three separate main buildings close to each other. They are surrounded by a 2-hectare park and occupy ​​about 550 square meters with four apartments of different sizes, for 12 bedrooms and seven bathrooms. A new cottage has also been refurbished: stone buildings with interiors typical of rural farms, vaulted, cross, or beamed ceilings. The floors are in terracotta, and the living rooms have stone fireplaces. The style is typically Tuscan, but the conservative renovations have meant that these houses, which once hosted peasant families, have become comfortable and relaxing places with touches of elegance typical of the millenary Tuscan culture.

Farmhouse in Tuscany with pool: live in a dream

  It is an enchanting farmhouse in the hills, dating back to the fourteenth century, full of history and tradition.

In 2011 renovation works started, and the farmhouse now maintains the original characteristic elements. The technical and structural innovations make it possible to best harmonize its past with the comforts and conveniences of contemporary technologies.

Outdoor.

Its position in the hills, 470 meters above sea level, allows an incomparable view of the Valdarno valley, dotted with small villages set in a typically Tuscan countryside adorned with cypresses and vast plots of vineyards and olive trees. The property's exposure to the south and the protection to the north of the mountainous relief of Pratomagno make the climate of the place dry and mild in winter and cool in summer, constantly caressed by a soft breeze. The property includes 1740 square meters of the courtyard and surrounding land on several levels, connected by comfortable stone stairs that welcome a lovely garden and a vegetable garden. There are fruit trees and fine trees on the south side with a lovely bio-pool with natural water, equipped with a natural Phyto-purification system, without chemicals or chlorine.

Farmhouses for sale in Tuscany, Italy: why invest in it

  Why buy this property. There are many reasons for investing in this property. First of all, it is in tune with the current demand for properties outside the cities, in safe locations, and with large and multifunctional spaces. This farmhouse has just that: an excellent geographical location near Florence, a hillside location with a favorable climate all year round, and proximity to villages and towns that guarantee optimal logistics. For those looking for a healthier standard of living, retiring, or relocating in Tuscany in total privacy, this farmhouse can be the ideal situation. Here you can also continue if you wish, the management of a small accommodation business with several rooms suitable for a limited number of guests, or the organization of a lovely "educational farm" with "light" and not too stressful management. The rest will be done by the surrounding lands, with their precious vineyards and olive groves, the sunsets and fairytale night landscapes, the silence and stillness of the surrounding nature.   Here you can breathe the density of the centuries-old history of the places: originally, this area was a peasant cottage, on whose square they used to beat the wheat and in whose large oven they used to bake bread for families of the whole area. Later, it became the hunting lodge of a noble family from Florence. Then again, it became a convent of the Sisters of Nevers with a chapel still visible today in one of the contemporary rooms of the farmhouse. Add to all this a touch of "magic and mystery" given by the singular phenomenon of the almond tree that blooms in January, when sometimes, only for a few days, the snow covers the surrounding nature. The event can come from the particular microclimate that develops in this corner of the hill where the farmhouse is or, if you prefer, from the mystical and spiritual aura that permeates the place. This farmhouse looks like an ideal place, a point of arrival for those who want to stop and live permanently here.

The fine vineyards extend for about 9 hectares with an entirely south / southeast exposure to Florence and Siena. The peculiar nature of the soil, stony and hard to break up, and the exposure to midday, is ideal for the Sangiovese Grosso, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot vines.
