Casa Marta, an enchanting farmhouse built in 1866, stands on top of a gentle green hill surrounded by flowing fields of sunflowers and wheat. Lined with cypress trees, it is a classic portrait of Tuscany.
This villa is wonderful for large family getaways because of its ideal location and nearby activities. The property boasts of large outdoor spaces, a lush garden with pool and comfortable interiors that can accommodate 12 people in the main house and 3 people in a lovely cottage. The cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Casa Marta is near Pisa, Florence and the coast, making cultural daytrips easy and entertaining for guests... of all ages. Twelve guests may be accommodated at Casa Marta 12, which is the main house, and at Casa Marta 16, which includes both buildings.

Casa Marta consists of an extensive, beautiful garden full of flowers and old lemon trees, and also a large pool (10x5 meters) with patio and sun chairs. Stunning white roses, begonias and jasmine cover the main house in the spring season. In the garden there is also an authentic outdoor pizza oven and a BBQ. There is a cat that lives in the garden of the house.
The cottage (150 sq meters) is a lovely little house that used to be a granary of the main farm.

The cottage has a television that receives local channels. The main villa is equipped with satellite TV.
