Villa Peccioli is perched on a hill with nearly 360 degree views of unspoiled Tuscan countryside, this eight hectare luxury escape is for those discerning travellers who want to be with up to 16 family and friends in privacy while being close to some Tuscany's most famous tourist attractions, including San Gimignano (35 minutes by car) and its less-well known but charming and more authentic 'cousin' Volterra (views from the property, 25 minutes by car). The property is 45 minutes from Pisa airport and just over one hour from Florence airport, both of which offer international flights throughout Europe and beyond.
This part of Tuscany, west of Chianti, is called the Colline Pisane (Pisa Hills) and boasts excellent wine-growing estates. Villa Peccioli has a one hectare vineyard that produces about 2,000 bottles of organic and almost exclusively red wine from Sangiovese grapes. It also has over 100 olive trees (some of which are hundreds of years old) that produce about 250 litres of extra virgin olive oil.
The property has two buildings, one large one that accommodates up to 12 guests (6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms) and an independent restructured barn (adjacent to the pool) that accommodates up to 4 guests (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms). Both buildings were renovated 12 years ago using typical Tuscan designs and have been fitted with modern fixtures, including windows, lighting, bathrooms etc. The current owners bought the property in 2019 and have equipped the building with new furniture and appliances. The kitchen in the main home is very spacious and perfect for hosting large groups.
Villa Peccioli boasts a delightful swimming pool set among olive trees, a vegetable garden, a fruit orchard and a sitting area with unparalleled views of the vineyard and kilometres of rolling Tuscan hillsides. The barn's second floor offers and outdoor eating area with one long wooden table that can accommodate 20 people, a gas barbecue and views of Volterra. The tower is equipped as a study area with desk, a printer, telephone and good wi-fi signal. Most of the property also has good wi-fi signal and cell phone coverage.
There are many activities to keep you busy. Aside from swimming on the property, joggers and walkers will enjoy the many dirt lanes flanked by cypresses and olive trees. Several agencies (described in the welcome pack) can organise outings such as rentals of historic cars and scooters, as well as wine tastings, cooking classes and Italian lessons in local establishments. A world class equestrian centre, offering horseback riding, is located about 15 minutes from the property.
