A good opportunity to purchase a piece of Tuscany. This farmhouse- Holiday Home, has a total surface of about 670 square meters with surrounding land of 2 Hectares. Situated on top of a hill near the banks of the Cecina river and surrounded by rolling hills, this fine rural estate has been perfectly restored preserving the original materials.
The property has been divided into 7 units: 3 are 2 bedrooms units, quite spacious, anche 4 are one bedroom unit with large kitchen/sleepin area. The green park surrounding the stone farmhouse is well-equipped with barbecue corner, tennis court, 2 pools and parking for several cars.
In the elevated areas of the Valle di Cecina, also known as the Volterrano, is the Berignone Area, an extensive forest that is linked to the nearby Tatti Forest. These are protected areas because of the abundant presence of diverse species of flora and fauna. In the past, lumberjacks and carbon workers labored here, collecting wood to heat the vapor ovens used to make Volterra salt. The main geological characteristic of the area is the large lacustrine deposit of “Miocene superiore”, a type of sedimentary rock formed by mark-stone and clay. Due to the flows of the various waterways in the area, among which is the Le Sellate torrent of Cecina, this type of rock is also found further down in the valley.
Also thanks to the abundance of these natural resources, the vegetation in the area is rich as is the presence of Mediterranean scrub. The fauna present is noteworthy, and it is not uncommon for visitors to see animals, like hare, wild boar, porcupines, mouflon, weasels, beech-martens, badgers, and any one of the numerous species of predatory and migratory birds.
