A small Tuscan development made up of 24 new build apartments. They feature a simple but authentic Tuscan style. Every apartment has a private garden and a balcony and all have use of the swimming pool.
The size of the apartments varies from 70 to 120 sqm and they are on two levels: on the ground floor is the the living area, the kitchen, one bathroom and a utility room, plus the private garden accessible both from the living room and the kitchen. A stone staircase reaches the first floor with two bedrooms and one bathroom. The main bedroom has a panoramic loggia.
The development is composed of 3 buildings: Casale, Fienile and Bastione which stand in the centre of an enclosed lawned area with swimming pool and several paths which cross the pretty gardens. In the lower part of the complex is the owner`s parking area. Peaceful, green, with views to the hills: this is what people expect from Tuscany.
The near medieval stone village of Chianni is popular for the excellent restaurants, and Rivalto itself offers a coffee shop and a grocery store within walking distance of the property.
A warm and welcoming atmosphere is created in the rustic style of traditional country Tuscan houses. Parquet in the bedrooms and natural colour ceramic tiles for the bathrooms, exposed wooden beams throughout and beautiful cotto tiles.
Rivalto is an ancient historic Etruscan hamlet in the district Municipality of Chianni. The small and charming village developed in the Middle Ages, and witness to that period is the urban structure, with its houses and buildings close together and its narrow stone streets. Surrounded by vegetation composed primarily of chestnuts and olive trees, Rivalto is located on 350 meters above sea level and has a splendid view over the valley below. Its hidden position from direct view has maintained the place almost intact over the time although the International Airport of Pisa, the seaside cities of Castiglioncello and Cecina on the Tyrrhenian coast or the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi or the remains of Etruscan or historic towns such as Volterra are all within 30 minutes drive. Rivalto is also located just 5 km from Casciana Terme, very well organised spa resort of national importance.
