Full Description

Set in a lovely position with views over the meadows to Pisa and the coastline. This property was a convent dating back to the 1600's and has been converted to a comfortable home just 15 minutes drive from Pisa.\nThis beautifully presented house, built as a convent in 1645, extends to 350 square metres and retains many original features. The main characteristics are the terrace and arched porticos, with exceptional views over the delightful gardens to the sea.

Lovely tiled steps rise to a covered entryway, leading through to an entrance hall, and onto the sitting room. This has a large feature fireplace with an additional adjoining reception room with beamed ceiling.

The large kitchen/dining room is well laid out in a rustic style with picture windows. Terracotta floors, fabulous wooden beams and chestnut wood doors. Gas cooker within the orginal chimney breast. Pellet stove. The kitchen opens onto a balcony, perfect for outside dining.
This level also features an exceptionally large bedroom (25 sq m), again with pellet stove, opening onto a large private terrace. Large tiled bathroom with bath.

A curved stone staircase leads downstairs to a breathtaking arched hallway, with study space, leading through to a large living area, again with fireplace. A huge arched door leads to steps down onto the garden. Bathroom with possibility to extend to include a shower. A large bedroom with stove, includes an interesting mezzanine study level, accessed by a spiral staircase. The bedroom has its own direct access to the garden. Bathroom with shower. An additional room, currently used as bedroom. A beautiful covered, arched terrace leads directly from this third room.

Central heating with LPG gas. An outside wood fired pizza oven. Natural pool/ lake, which can be used for swimming, is filled with natural spring water.

The accommodation is particularly flexible. There is a possibility to convert this large house to two distinct apartments, if required, each with private entrance.
Within the grounds, just a short way away from the house is a 'frantoio', an olive press, which could convert to another 50 sq m building, for additional accommodation, games room, or home office.

The old convent is set in a peaceful, panoramic position. There is 35,000 square metres of land encompassing vines, lemon trees, horse chestnut trees, linden trees and many tropical plants. The proximity to the sea and the sheltered site mean the climate is mild and the winters are short. The views are stunning, with a distant sea view. The special village of Uliveto Terme is just a short stroll away. Vicopisano is the commune. An excellent restaurant is only 5 mins away.

The entire property is fenced. There is easy parking for several cars.



The Vicopisano region is a beautiful area surrounded by green Tuscan hills, nestled between Mount Pisano and the Arno river, only 15 minutes from Pisa. The area is known for the particular health properties of the water and over the centuries visitors have flocked here to benefit from these properties. It is thought to be especially good for sports people and in 1992 Uliveto water was the official water of Italy at the Olympic Games. The Thermal Park of Uliveto Terme is a large garden with fountains, where you can spend a day relaxing, with excellent sport facilities.
