Overview

Villa Grande is a huge, recently restored farmhouse which sits on a sunny hill in the Badia di Morrona wine estate offering superb views to the surrounding hills and the picturesque village of Morrona.

This detached property is an excellent base for visiting all parts of Tuscany - a day out in Florence can easily be accomplished by either car or train, and you are well-placed for visits to Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, the coast, Volterra and Lucca. There are sandy beaches at Tirrenia a 35 minute drive away. A good supermarket is 4 miles away. Tennis courts are available in Ponsacco and horse riding can be found in the grounds of Badia di Morrona. Weekly markets are in the nearby towns Ponsacco, Casciana Terme and Pontedera.

A beautiful restaurant, which belongs to the estate, is just ½ mile away - typical Tuscan meals and very good wines from the estate are offered at very reasonable prices. You will also find a good choice of other restaurants in the area, or if you prefer, a cook is available on request. You are very welcome to visit the impressive winery of Badia di Morrona.

A delightful, large, salt swimming pool (15m x 8m) with comfortable poolside furniture is the focus of the well-kept garden.

Villa Grande is a perfect property for a large family or a group of friends who are wishing to spend an unforgettable holiday together.
