Description:In a house that climbs the hillside it rests on, Bernardino is situated to savour the views of the wide Maremma plain that stretches below the medieval town of Campiglia Marittima and finishes on the horizon at the Mediterranean Sea. An excellent family house and certainly one to which to invite friends, it has terraces off each bedroom, which offer private retreat, yet spacious rooms and outdoor areas in which to gather. Though newly renovated, the house easily harmonizes with its surroundings, thanks to the careful use of local building materials and native vegetation that encircle the house in a varied palette of green. The owners have decided that their house should leave a light footprint on the land and with water and solar collectors and wind generated electricity have rendered it self-sufficient. While modern technology accomplishes these invisible marvels, what remains visible and delightful are the many spots in which one can relax into a memorable holiday. nThe 'front door' is actually a side one that brings you directly into a large country kitchen, the origins from which this large house grew. Here modern appliances blend well with terracotta counters, beamed ceilings, an open fireplace and a large table for 12 under a wide brick arch. To one side of the kitchen a few steps lead down to a large living area with comfortable sofas, off the other, a short stairway leads up to a floor with three bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom with separate shower. Also on this floor is a study with a sofa-bed and access to a covered terrace whose well-positioned hammock offers both slumber and a sea view. Of the bedrooms, two share the wide front terrace and the third has a terrace that leads to the green lawn and zen rock garden behind the house. nAt Bernardino there is practically a house within a house, for stairs from the ground floor living room lead down to a second living area with kitchen equipment concealed in a large cupboard, a furnished terrace, a shower room and stairs leading up to two additional bedrooms, both with terraces and one with an ensuite shower room. This arrangement makes the house ideal for two families vacationing together or situations in which children's dinner time might make an extra kitchen useful. The house has lovely artwork, an eclectic mix of antique and simple country furnishings and a generous use of terracotta and local travertine stone. nWhen tired of gazing at the landscape from his terrace, a guest can join the others under the simple pergola at the front and keep an eye on whoever is barbecuing his dinner, be it friend, family or local cook come to share the secrets of Tuscan cooking. To work up an appetite for that dinner there are many things to set out to discover in this area - a picturesque town in walking distance, a sandy beach and fascinating Etruscan ruins a short drive away and, of course, the island of Elba, an easy daytrip. Wineries, thermal baths and golf courses are all nearby and even Pisa's tower and the famed shops of Lucca are but an hour away. Naturally, the reward of all that effort is having a restful house on a hillside to return to where, with a glass of local red, you can consider it all from a distance.

The final rooms on this floor are a handy laundry room and a large sitting room where one can relax and read a book, listen to music or watch TV, all under a beautiful XXVII century ceramic ceiling. nFor larger groups it is possible to also rent the guest cottage off the front piazza. A small fully equipped kitchen, a shower room, a comfortable double bed and a single sofa bed are all part of the simple wooden furnishings in this bright air conditioned apartment, whose large windows overlook the swimming pool and the breathtaking view of the castle of Vinci. nThe villa is located just a few steps from the house of Leonardo and a 15 minute walk from the village of Vinci where, in addition to shops and restaurants, there is a fascinating museum dedicated to the inventions and scientific expertise of the village's native son. The area offers a wide choice of cultural and enogastronomic activities, from the famous ceramics of Montelupo, to the easy day trips to historic villages such as Cerreto Guidi, San Miniato and Certaldo, which finish with wine tasting at one of the wonderful farmhouses in the area.
