Make an apartment in Lajatico your home away from home

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.

It was very very clean with 2 very large and beautifully appointed bedrooms with bathrooms. The highlight is the terrace,very sunny all day. We have enjoyed it for morning breakfasts and evening dinners.

Lovely gardens and apartments that were all maintained to a high standard. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to explore this area.

                                                                                                      We booked for a week from 23rd Oct hoping for a chance to explore Tuscany. Ideally we wanted somewhere peaceful but reasonably close to a town or village and centrally placed to get out and about, we weren't disappointed. The house is no more than 1 mile from the beautiful town of Volterra, historic streets lined with lovely shops, bars and restaurants, we had to tear ourselves away to explore the region! The owner was very easy to deal with when booking the house and provided detailed information not just about the house, but the local area as well. Upon arrival, late at night, we were delighted with the welcome hamper that had been left to greet us, with some delicious local goodies it made a very nice start to our break.The view from the veranda that greeted us the next morning was incredible - and we spent one entire day just sat out admiring it - with some local produce to keep us sustained! The house was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed, of particular use was the wifi, which, despite the owners warning, was very reliable in terms of connection for the entire week. Very comfy beds with plenty of storage space and a lovely garden to roam around, the house is accurately described, with a perfectly acceptable kitchen should you decide to self-cater.We travelled to San Gimignano (twice) and would recommend the ice cream from the shop in the square with 'world’s best ice cream' on their sign - we wouldn't disagree! Also the view from the point on right hand side of the main street - spectacular. We drove to Poggibonsi and caught the train to Florence - 7 euros each - free parking by the station and an hour on the train with return trains every hour - perfectly simple.An hour’s drive in the other direction is Sienna via Monteriggioni - well worth a visit and have a lunch at the restaurant half way down the main street on the right - not cheap but worth every penny. We also went for a drive west from Volterra to Bolgheri via Montecatini - the only problem being we had to stop every few miles to take photographs of the view! Our final trip was up to Viareggio north of Pisa, a beautiful walk on the beach, even in October - and some very high class shopping on the front, we called in at the leaning tower of Pisa on the way back home - amazing. All in all a busy but very interesting week. I would certainly recommend that you stay here, the only thing we didn't try was the well proportioned swimming pool - well it was the last week in October!
