Description

BEDROOM

The Master bedroom in the historic past was the residence of the messenger of the manor who was responsible for looking after the messenger pigeons. 

The bedroom still retains exposed stone walls dating back over hundreds of years which once formed the walls of Vicopisano’s fortifications.  Today the room has a characteristic four-poster bed (queen-size) and beautiful antique furniture. 

LIVING AND LOUNGING SPACE

The Living Room is extremely suggestive given the high ceiling characterized by chestnut beams and terracotta bricks: the bright window instead overlooks the courtyard of the Manor. The large leather sofa, comfortable to enjoy the TV corner, becomes a king sofa bed if necessary to use the living room as a possible second bedroom: the comfortable size of the sofa bed makes it perfect for resting both adults and children. The living room is embellished with old prints and a centenary cupboard where, for centuries, bread was put to rest and which is a typical element of rustic Tuscan houses.

BATHROOM

The bathroom is located under a Medieval arch and has a large shower, toilet, bidet, and sink.  The sink is mounted on an antique sewing machine table.

 

 

KITCHEN AND THE LOGGIA

The rustic Tuscan masonry kitchen consists of a grit sink, a large countertop, and an induction hob: the refrigerator and the dishwasher are located in the wooden built-in kitchen where you will also find pots, microwave, kettle, toaster, and everything you need to prepare a beautiful Tuscan dinner! The beautiful period showcase masters the kitchen which overlooks the surrounding countryside with a picturesque window.
