There are several outdoor eating areas for “al fresco” dining in this magical setting. These include a covered terrace with access from the kitchen and dining room offering outdoor eating at its best, cool and protected yet fully exposed to the surrounding views of the valley and nearby hills, which make this area so special. This jasmine-scented terrace situated just off the kitchen, has a stone built barbecue, large stone dining table and refined teak loungers. It is framed by a fragrant rock garden featuring most of the typical Italian herbs. It falls away to superb views beyond, soaking up the sun from early morning to late evening.

The terracotta tiled pool area is strategically placed at a close, level walk from the house, near enough for convenience yet secluded enough to allow privacy and quiet. T

he pool receives the sun from early morning to late evening and commands open views across olive groves and cypress trees towards Lucca and Pisa beyond. With child safety in mind, the pool is enclosed by low local redbrick walls with access through a wrought-iron gate.

The pool surround is tiled with terracotta. There is a wisteria-covered pergola, which gives shade from the heat of the summer and where you can take poolside meals cooked on the pool barbecue. In both early and late summer months the pool heater maintains the pool temperature at your own setting.
