Villa Sissi, set among the most beautiful hills that surround the Valdinievole, offers a breathtaking view over the plain below and over the surrounding hills covered with olive trees, which seem to cradle this property. To the south you can see the chain of the Pisan mountains with Mount Serra that, on sunny days, ensures you sunsets worthy of a painting. This 19th century farmhouse, renovated with taste and quality materials, welcomes its guests and makes them feel at home, offering them an unforgettable holiday, with air-conditioned bedrooms, Wi-Fi and living areas with large windows overlooking the green hills. The area has a lot to offer: natural spas in the thermal caves of the Tuscan countryside and visits to old medieval villages, churches, castles and museums, while gentle slopes where you can just relax accompany you during your walks amongst olive groves and vineyards and along streams with picturesque panoramas. The swimming pool with sunbathing area is set in the olive grove where the scents of the Tuscan countryside will surround you during the time you spend in this property. On the terrace, an area dedicated to outdoor living, you can enjoy the bucolic scenery while you sip an apéritif or dine outdoors. For lovers of good wine, this area produces one of the most renowned white wines of Tuscany, the “Bianco della Valdinievole” DOC and just a short distance away is the famous wine route of the hills of Lucca and Montecarlo where you can linger in the many wine cellars and taste this nectar of Bacchus. The proximity to Florence, Lucca, Pisa and the Versilia coast makes it easy to get to all these places; in nearby Montecatini Terme you can relax in the spa facilities or spend a day in the thermal cave of Grotta Giusti after playing 18 holes at the Montecatini Terme Golf Club.
