There is an outdoor pool of 12 metres by 6 for the guests of the residence. The apartment “Poppy” is part of the Corte Tommasi Residence which includes 14 apartments, a swimming pool and a restaurant.
On arriving at Corte Tommasi you will be irresistably caught under the spell of the beauty of the surrounding countryside and the feeling of utter peace and quiet it conveys. The air is filled with the scent of pine trees, wild mimosa and rosemary, jasmine and freshly mown grass, accompanied till dusk by a daylong sonorous background of birdsong, the chirping of crickets and at night the hooting of an owl.
Corte Tommasi is deep in the Tuscan countryside, but it is also happily situated in a village from which one can make trips to innumerable places of interest whether historic, artistic, nature-seeking or gastronomic and follow all kinds of itineraries.
Corte Tommasi lies 5 Kms. from the Pisa-Florence motorway A11 (Altopascio exit) and 30 minutes' drive away from such renowned places as Lucca, the Montecatini spas, Pistoia and Collodi (home of Pinocchio). It takes 40 minutes to drive to Pisa, Prato, Vinci ( the birthplace of Leonardo) or San Miniato in one direction, or, going towards the coast, to Torre del Lago (Puccini's home), Viareggio and La Versilia beaches. It takes an hour to go to Florence.
Visitors of all nationalities are given a warm welcome. We speak English, German, Spanish and French.
The original flats have all been completely restored in the traditional Tuscan rural style with wooden beamed ceilings and Florentine terracotta tiled floors. The flats are very spacious and have been newly fitted out with solid wooden furniture and beautiful modern bathrooms. There is a T.V. set in every room and the kitchen area is up-to-date and practical, made of solid wood with a marble counter and includes a fridge, a freezer and a dishwasher.
