Podere Le Sensaie

This restored stone farmhouse is set in the heart of the Tuscan countryside overlooking the medieval hilltop village of Lajatico. From the golden stone façade to the earth tone interiors, Podere Le Sensaie has a luxe-rustic vibe. It's secluded enough for peaceful days under the sun and close enough to Florence, Siena, Pisa and San Gimignano for exciting days out exploring.

Take in the panoramic views of the neighbouring village from the gazebo or any of the sun terraces, or potter around the olive grove and landscaped gardens before diving into the pool for a swim.

During your stay in this Tuscan home, there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Wander down to Lajatico village, Andrea Bocelli's home town and visit the Teatro del Silenzio, an open-air amphitheatre where the Italian tenor hosts a concert every year in July. Pisa is a short drive away. Take a stroll down Campo dei Miracoli to visit the cathedral or amble down quaint alleyways filled with leather goods, furniture and gourmet food.

Tuscany - Podere Le Sensaie

Podere Le Sensaie is located just outside the pretty Tuscan village of Lajatico. Set on a hill overlooking the Valley of the Era, Lajatico is believed to be an old Roman settlement, later coming under the control of the Bishop of Volterra, then the republic of Pisa, and finally the republic of Florence.
