This pleasing house is immersed in the fabulous Tuscan countryside, high on a hillside with fantastic views across the green, wooded hills to a medieval tower rising up on one of the surrounding peaks. Although modern, Villa Vignacce has been developed in full respect of the style of traditional Tuscan country houses.
The interior is simple but with all necessary comforts to guarantee a relaxing holiday in close contact with nature. And here we are talking about a truly unspoilt nature where woods, full of oaks and Mediterranean plants, stretch out as far as the eye can see over the now rolling now rugged hills that surround the property.
The historic centre of Pomarance is worth a visit with its parish church, home to paintings by Cristofano Roncalli and Nicolò Cercignani, the town square (la piazza della Pretura) and the beautiful 19th century buildings on Via Roncalli (Roncalli Street), amongst which you will find the stunning ‘Casa Bicocchi’, a 19th century villa.
The area offers a great variety of attractions from the ancient, medieval hamlets built into the hillsides such as Micciano, Libbiano, Montegemoli, Serrazzano, Lustignano, San Dalmazio to the ruins of the Norman-Romanesque church and the fortress of Sillano; this land is also known for its geothermal steam jets and boric-acid fumaroles. The area combines a rich history with an interesting natural environment.
For those interested in local traditions, the Palio delle Contrade (second Sunday in September) is not to be missed and the museum of Geothermal Energy is worth a visit by those interested in this field.
