Situated among hills of vineyards and olive groves, the small village of Lajatico is in the heart of Tuscany surrounded by natural beauty. The striking landscapes, medieval buildings and old stone churches are among Lajatico’s principle attractions and the annual open-air concert by its most famous son, the tenor Andrea Bocelli, draws visitors from all over the world. Lajatico also benefits from its proximity to the beautiful and historic cities of Pisa and Florence.

To help you take advantage of the area’s outstanding qualities HomeAway has a collection of gorgeous farmhouses and apartments in Lajatico village and the surrounding countryside. In a part of Italy where people love to live their lives outdoors, balconies, swimming pools, patios and expansive terraces are common features of many rentals. With hot summers and a favourable climate throughout the year, many holiday villas in Lajatico come with air-conditioning and private or communal swimming pools.

Things to do

-Outdoors: Lying between the Era and Cecina Valleys, Lajatico makes the most of its natural assets – an abundance of hills, valleys, meadows and forests are the main reasons why people rent apartments in Lajatico. There are numerous nature trails, footpaths and trekking routes as well as fabulous views and opportunities to see numerous native birds and animal species.

-Historic Monuments: History lovers will find much to enthuse and excite them with a clutch of buildings from centuries past. Among the highlights are the 13th-century church of St. Leonard, the bell-tower and clock, once part of the ancient castle of Lajatico and the 12th-century Municipal Palace. Over the years this building has served as a private home and seat of the Lajatico government.

-Culture: Carved into the hillside is the Teatro del Silenzio (Theatre of Silence), a purpose-built open-air theatre framed by the Lajatico hills. The venue is only open for one day of the year when Lajatico native Andrea Bocelli hosts an annual concert in July. The theatre was his idea and the setting includes an artificial lake with a large sculpture of a face at its centre.

-Events: Lajatico is proud of its culture and traditions and pays tribute to them with a variety of feasts and festivals throughout the year. Among the most important are the Feast of the Farmyard during the fourth week of June, the village fair in September and October’s Festival of Chestnuts.

Idyllic Tuscan Experience

4 of 5
A fascinating villa wonderfully sited in the Tuscan landscape with extensive views in all directions. We enjoyed the spacious rooms with there interesting art and variety of furnishings. The beautiful pool was great and would be wonderful in the warmer weather later in the year. We were able to access nearby Volterra and San Giminano, both of which are worth exploration. Trips to Pisa, Lucia and Florence were easily possible from the villa.

Outstanding setting

5 of 5
We had a wonderful 16 days here. The weather was perfect. The apartment was situated so we had the most amazing view of the tower in Vicopisano and we so enjoyed sitting outside for breakfast etc. The owners, staff and Marie and Lorenzo couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. We had a tour of the olive farm with Marco and tasted the various oils and of course, some wine! We were only sorry we could bring back such a small sample of the delicious olive oil. We will look back on our holiday every time we use them. Ideally situated for visiting Florence, Lucca, Volterra etc. We took the train to Florence which was cheap (27 Euros return for 2), on time and hassle free. Train station is in the heart of Florence so easy walking to all the beautiful sights. We had a car for whole holiday so were able to explore all the hilltop towns and villages including the birthplace of Andrea Bocelli. The little square in Vicopsiano is the perfect spot to have a drink or a gelato and watch the world go by! Our apartment was adequate, only small gripe was the lack of hot water and noise from adjoining apartment. Due to the tiled floors every time a chair was moved it was very loud (obviously our neighbour would have the same problem with us), only minor problems really. This is such a lovely part of Tuscany plus the food and wine are terrific. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and would love to return.
