Holiday Rental House
Our large detached family villa is set in the heart of the idyllic Tuscan hamlet of Po, situated high in the hills just outside Fivizzano. With breathtaking views across the mountains it is the perfect location to relax away from it all. The newly renovated villa comprises 4 large bedrooms (one with ensuite), and a large family sized bathroom. It has a traditional hallway and small balcony offering views across the mountains and valley. Downstairs consists of a large lounge with wood-burning stove (for the colder winter months), a dining room that seats 8, a newly fitted kitchen as well as a small shower room and toilet. With a private swimming pool, large terrace and well maintained garden it is the perfect place for enjoying the Tuscan sunshine or al fresco dining.

The villa is surrounded by beautiful woodland with a number of picturesque nature walks featuring panoramic views over unspoilt countryside. If you are lucky you may spot eagles, wild boar or see the hundreds of fireflies that light up the garden in early summer. Situated less than an hour's drive to the nearest coast, 1hr to Pisa and 2hrs to Florence makes this an ideal location to base your Tuscan adventure from. More locally Po has it's own bakery selling fresh artisan bread and local produce, there is also a small bar within walking distance for your morning cappuccino or evening gin and tonic. More

About the neighbourhood

Anna's is a five minute walk from the house just outside of our village located in Uglianfredo. On the main road down from the village there is a sma...
