VILLA CENTONI - A CAREFREE HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE!
LOCATION: WHERE WE ARE
Our villa is situated in a small villagio between Lucca and Pisa, conveniently located for visits to the charming Tuscan towns like Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Viaregio. It is also close to the breathtaking views of Cinque Terre and the isle of Elba.
This was an ancient house with agricultural background: they used to produce wine and olive oil here.
But no more. It has been renovated to preserve its original Tuscan look and feel. It still has beamed ceilings and thick walls, and even a traditional wood-burning oven, but now incorporates all the modern in-house technology.
LAYOUT: WHERE YOU WILL LIVE
This is a 4-bedroom villa roughly 250sq m, with common facilites on the first floor and sleeping chambers (all of them air-conditioned) on the second floor. There is also a very cosy terrace with a barbecue that makes those outside meals and beers so relaxing.
On the first floor there are two entrances: one from the main parking and into the brightest and biggest lounge with 2 sofas, cupboard and a table with chairs, the other one from the terrace into a common area. The kitchen is in the heart of the villa, with bathroom with a shower and a boiler room on the one side from it, and ancient lounge/library with 2 sofas and a fireplace on the other.
Stairs will take you to the second floor with a big bathroom and 4 air-conditioned bedrooms. Two of them are ancient Tuscan-style, and two are modern, spacious big-window bedrooms. All bedrooms have double beds. Baby cot is also available free of charge.
THE SPACE: HOW WE ARE SITUATED
The villa is conveniently located on a hill with no neighbours overseeing the territory. The garden is 5 thousand sq meters and very green and has a big parking lot
The territory is completely closed off by fence (natural and mesh) and secure, and the pool is only available to house guests.
ENJOYING THE POOL
We have a proprietary infinity swimming pool with a great Tuscan view. It is 12x6 meters wide , and 1,5m deep (2,7m in the diving area), with a diving board the kids love so much. There's also the shallow pool for the very small ones, which is 1,2x12meters wide and 1m deep. The pool has a shower of its own, a big umbrella and pool chairs.
There's also a lifeline for emergencies.
EQUIPMENT: MAKING YOUR LIFE EASY
the villa has all the modern tech: gas stove and oven, coffee and espresso machines, dishwasher and washing machines, refrigerator with freezer and a microwave oven. Everything is new and running perfectly.
