Fonte Di Pierdo is an elegant, spacious home sitting in beautiful landscaped gardens. Historically used as a hunting lodge by Tuscany’s ruling Dukes the Medici family, the house is the perfect blend of old and new as you will find modern, luxurious interiors inside the 16th century building and garden walls.

The villa is spread over two floors, on the ground floor you will find a stunning, double height living room which is flooded with natural light and is furnished with comfortable sofas and solid wood furniture which surround centuries-old fireplaces and sit on restored terracotta tiles. Guests can gather together in this vast room in the evenings for drinks while the children could spend time in the smaller sitting room, giving them a little space away from the grown-ups. When it is time for dinner, you can all dine together around a large dining table which is lit by pretty, twinkling chandeliers.

The home has an impressive eleven bedrooms where guests can be assured of a relaxing nights sleep. Two of these rooms; a double room and a twin room are located on the ground floor whilst the other bedrooms are located on the first floor and are divided into two separate wings. These wings are not connected but can each be reached from downstairs, meaning each wing could offer privacy to different groups or families who are travelling together as a larger party. There are nine bedrooms on the first floor as well as five well-appointed bathrooms.

With a lovely climate, you are sure to want to spend much of your time outdoors in the vast garden. Made up of lawned spaces, patios with little tables, wooded areas and a pergola covered dining terrace, the garden is a tranquil oasis where you can spend leisurely days in the sun. The star attraction of the garden is the collection of pools in the centre; there is a large freeform swimming pool which flows over in to a small pool, perfect for children and there is also a rock-carved jacuzzi where you can unwind and listen to the sounds of the birds in the trees. If you fancy a round of tennis, you will be pleased to know that the villa has a private court with rackets and balls available for guests.

The house is ideally situated for relaxed days spent making memories in the gardens and surrounding countryside and day trips to nearby towns and villages. There nearest village is just 1km away and can be reached on foot. It is a good spot for picking up fresh pastries or dining out at one of the pizzerias or grill restaurants. Also close by is the village of Altopascio which is a 5km drive from the house. The village has a number of historic attractions as well as a wide range of eateries and artisan shops.

If you would like to enjoy a day out visiting museums, galleries and ancient churches in one of Tuscany’s much-loved cities, you are spoiled for choice as you could pay a visit to Lucca (25km away), Pisa (47km away) or even Florence (80km away).

The home is also perfectly situated for a day at one of Tuscany’s gorgeous sandy beaches, the nearest of which are around 45km away. You can opt to spend a day at a luxury, serviced beach club with restaurants and bars or you could find a tucked-away cove for an afternoon of snorkelling and sunbathing, whatever your preference, you will find a wonderful beach within easy reach of the villa.
