Palaia, Province of Pisa, Tuscany
A unique place between past and present that makes enjoy strong emotions with the comforts of home. Standing on the ruins of an old 18th century farmhouse on the hill of San Jacopo, in the heart of the Valdera, this charming house is the result of careful restoration work, nestling in the well-tended green of a wonderful garden, protected by a garrison of olive trees and with a spectacular view over the surrounding hills. The original terracotta and the exposed chestnut wood beams contrasting with the pastel tints of the rooms and the light-coloured wood of the numerous doors and windows that open out onto the park, the beautiful hand-painted floral decorations and the sober and refined furnishings define the aesthetic style of Dimora San Jacopo which has no lack of modern amenities for your stay in top comfort.

About the neighbourhood
In an area of the garden overlooking the open scenic landscape, lies the beautiful, newly-built infinity pool, about 20 m from the house and accessible down a slightly sloping paved path. With 5 spectacular Roman steps, the pool measures 6 x 14 m with the depth varying from 1.30 to 2.70 m. The border is in terracotta and the interior is lined with beige tiles. It is surrounded by a large terracotta-tiled sunbathing area provided with comfortable sunbeds. There is a cold/hot-water shower and a wooden gazebo with table and chairs. The pool has salt purification and can also be used at night thanks to both internal and external lighting. It is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.

About 800 sq m of parkland frame the house, protected by the extensive olive grove of the property (fenced for about 2 hectares) completely planted with grass and perfectly accessible. In the beautiful well-tended garden, with Mediterranean herbs, laurel and strawberry trees, lavender, rosemary and rose bushes bordering the internal pathways, alternating with a young collection of cypress trees and numerous oak, turkey oak and magnolia trees that dot the driveway and frame the pool area, can be found many comfortable areas for relaxing outdoors: a pergola with sofas and two dining areas located near the French windows of the house. There is also a large covered parking area, located just after the entrance gate.
