This lovely house is in the centre of a quiet Tuscan village and within walking distance of amenities. Terricciola is set between the valleys of the River Era and the town of Cascina, and the Sterza stream. It is in between Pisa and Florence in an area with pretty hilltop villages including Morrona, Soiana, La Rosa, Selvatelle, La Chientina and Soianella which are all wonderful to explore. This colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and tall cypress trees epitomise the Tuscan dream. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization.
Terricciola is known as the ‘City of Wine’ for the rich and fertile soil ideal for cultivating grapes. In September each year The Festa dell’Uva e del Vino (Grape and Wine festival) is held. This offers an excellent opportunity to taste some of the best wines of the region and people come from all over the region to enjoy this special occasion. There are many other festas in the area including the Spring Fair in La Rosa in May, the Festa dell’allegria (Feast of Joy) in Morrona and the Strawberry Festival in Terricciola in July, the Notte Bianca (White Wine Night) in August and the Calici di Stelle (drinks under the Stars) in Terricciola.
