  • Villa Dell'Emissario

    Villa dell'Emissario is a beautiful seventeenth-century villa, completely restored in recent years and furnished with great taste and refinement by the two owners, frequent travelers and lovers of art history. The villa is set in an extraordinarily panoramic place, not far from the medieval village of Celle sul Rigo and 6 km from San Casciano dei Bagni, a very popular wellness centre.

    From Rome they came to the lands of Casciano because Triario, wife of the Emperor Vitellius, had recommended the healthy properties of thermal waters to her friends. Coming along the Via Cassia, Capitoline patricians in the company of their lovers or their families, either by horse-drawn carriage or in the saddle, came to this place in the shadow of Mount Cetona, in the rugged lands taken from the Etruscans.

    In medieval times, the therapeutic reputation of the place did not fade. The town is known by the name of Bagno, or “Balneo”. And the baths of San Cassiano, later S. Casciano, were documented from 1081 when, among the assets of the powerful Abbey of St. Salvatore on Monte Amiata, the figure of “Curtis de Balneo” is mentioned.
    In the municipality, 43 hot springs gush out a total capacity of 5,400,000 litres per day, placing S. Casciano immediately behind the European celebrities of Aix-les-Bains and Karlsbad. Every ailment finds a cure here.

    But it is not only for the wellbeing of the body that people come to this town, hidden behind the folds of the Val d’Orcia, behind the rupestrian scales of Radicofani and not far but protected from highways and railways. People come to learn about a wild Tuscany, made up of few roads and those that there are, are nearly all white, impenetrable woods and bush, mysterious places of water, showerheads, gullies, clay.

  • Villa Vista Lago

    Originally built in the late 1400s and nestled in an acre of olive trees, with a sweeping view of the Mediterranean Sea, Villa Vista Lago is a three-story stone farmhouse, featuring three beautiful master bedroom suites, each with its own private terrazzo with spectacular views.

    Located in the soft hills of Tuscany, Villa Vista Lago overlooks Tuscany's largest and most exciting seaside resort, Viareggio, the evocative Lake Massaciuccoli, the picturesque and convenient town of Massarosa, and the surrounding foothills which lead north to the vast marble caves of Carrara and dramatic scenery of the Apuan Alps and south, past the fields of sunflowers, to the cities of Pisa and Livorno. 

    Every window in the house allows for magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. Looking west to the Mediterranean, one sees the islands of Corsica, Elba, Gorgona and Capraia. To the south lies Lake Massaciuccoli and beyond the lake, in the distance, you can see the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Further south is the port city of Livorno, with the constant comings and goings of the major cruise ships, the nearest port to Florence, Pisa and Lucca. To the east is the village of Pieve a Elici, with its most famous structure, the 11th century Romanesque church San Pantaleone. To the north are acres of olive groves in the surrounding hills. You need only to move from one window to the next to experience the changing light and colors that have inspired Italian artists throughout the centuries.

    Our guests can enjoy beautiful dawns followed by morning sunshine that lasts until the early evening, because of the villa's southern exposure. Every so often, in the distant wetlands near Lake Massaciuccoli, you will see trains that run from Florence or Pisa to Viareggio, reminiscent of a miniature Lionel train moving across the landscape. At dusk the romantic sunsets over the Mediterranean give way to warm evenings, midnight blue skies dotted with stars, and the sparkling city lights of Massarosa, Pisa, Viareggio and Livorno. And in the background you will be serenaded by the soft bells of San Pantaleone reminding you that the hours are passing... but slowly, leaving a frenetic world behind and allowing a different rhythm to engulf you. 

    Villa Vista Lago is perfect as a base from which to venture out and explore the many attractions for which Tuscany is famous. The house is ideally located only a 15 minute drive to the seashore in Viareggio or Forte dei Marmi. The medieval walled city of Lucca is 20 minutes away; the marble caves of Carrara, located in the dramatic Apuan Alps, is a 25 minute drive. Pisa (and the main airport serving Tuscany) is 30 minutes from the house. And it is an hour's drive (or an easy train ride) to Florence.

    Enjoy easy day trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Vinci, Volterra, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, the island of Elba, the unspoiled and beautiful districts of the Garfagnana and the Lunigiana and almost all of the major attractions of Tuscany. Villa Vista Lago is also very conveniently located for those wishing to visit the Cinque Terre, Portovenere, Portofino, Rapallo and Santa Margherita and the lesser-known but equally beautiful Ligurian seaside villages north of Tuscany.
