Colonica Vito is only 800 meters or yards from the village of Sassetta and 12 kilometers from the seaside at Marina di Castagneto, so that you can have the best of Italian village life and beach culture whilst still being able to escape to the cool privacy of your apartment in the chestnut forest.
The house has just been refurbished to a very high standard, the floors are in a light tile throughout, kitchens and bathrooms included. The fixtures and fittings are of a high standard, in harmony with the surroundings.
From all the apartments the easterly views stretch across the "Pian delle Vigne" plains and on to rolling Tuscan hills dotted with Medieval villages. There is one upstairs apartment and two on the ground floor.
GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL
The garden is large and shady with ample space for rowdy ball games. Each apartment has its own sitting-out area, with a table, garden chairs and barbecue.
The pool is located in an ample paved terrace and is shared with the clients of a nearest villa.
Entering the living room one finds an open fireplace opposite and the cooking area on the left with oven, burners, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Between the fireplace and the cooking area is a table for 8 people. During winter months the apartment is centrally heated. In the living room there are two single sofa beds accommodating 2 people plus one fold away bed and a satellite TV.
From the living room one has access to a large terrace equipped with stone table and iron chairs for outside dining. The terrace, shaded by chestnut trees is rather special feature of the property.
The living room leads to the two bedrooms each with bathroom. Both have a double bed and the larger of the two also has a single bed and a cot. Both bathrooms are well finished with shower cabinets and the larger of the 2 also has a washing machine.
