The property is walking distance from the main square of the little town, with its two cafés, a charming restaurant with tables and chairs on the main piazza, a pharmacy, the headquarters of the Bank of Lajatico, a good bakery and many other small shops.The piazza is witness to the daily life of its inhabitants and their stories: at any time of year it is the beating heart of the village.

Andrea Bocelli is a world renowned tenor and Lajatico is his hometown. Every year in July he hosts an important international festival at his 'Teatro del Silencio', his specially created open air amphitheatre. During this week music lovers come from all over the world to listen to the wonderful performances of Bocelli, and other important international artists. Bocelli is often seen in the square or at his restaurant where he samples, and encourages others to sample, the local specialties of his expert chefs.

The town of Lajatico is located in Valdera in Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills is dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees which epitomise the Tuscan landscape.

The area is scattered with historical towns and medieval villages, castles and country churches and a landscape with golden meadows of wheat dancing in the breeze, vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization.

Casciana Terme, another local town, has thermal waters and spa facilities and is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine.

The nearby 'città d’arte' (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence.

Distances: Pisa Airport 50 km, Florence 80 km, Lucca 50 km, San Gimignano 35 km, Volterra 20 km, Coast 40 km.
