RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. The hermitage of Caterina de’ Medici, today better known as the Poggio Nuccioli estate, is located among the green hills of Carmignano, where the Etruscans left their mark. The villa, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, offers stunning views and is just a few paces from the piazza of Carmignano, an old Tuscan village nestled in the hills and renowned for the production of a DOC wine and an extra virgin olive oil that were already famous at the time of the noble Medici family. The particularity of this farmhouse is that typical local materials have been used during the renovation, sandstone (with the particular processing method, subbiatura, of this area), terracotta, wooden beams and trusses. The garden, typical of this area, is distributed over various levels with each view a veritable picture postcard. It is a strategic point for the most beautiful itineraries in Tuscany, to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pistoia, Vinci.
A flight of steps lead from the parking lot to the terrace and the main entrance into the house and the large living room with fireplace and satellite TV. The living room leads on to the fully-equipped kitchen and dining room. Next to the living room is a small toilet, a laundry, a sitting room and a study from which a flight of stairs leads down to a small kitchen on the lower floor with access to the pool and solarium. Two different staircases lead up to the first floor. A sandstone staircase in the living room leads up to a first double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower, a second double bedroom with join able beds and en-suite bathroom without shower, a third double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower and a fourth double bedroom with child’s cot and en-suite bathroom with shower. A fifth double bedroom in the turret, with breathtaking views, has the use of a bathroom at the beginning of the stairs leading to the turret. A sixth double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower is reached from the study on the ground floor via a wooden staircase.
The villa is set in a 2500 sq.m park distributed among olive groves growing on the gentle slopes of the hill and fruit trees, such as the famous figs of Carmignano. The cosy garden is also enriched with various types of flowers and surrounded by typical Tuscan plants – cypress trees, oaks, holm oaks. The whole garden can be seen from a spacious terracotta terrace which is reached from both the garden and the dining room. Adjacent to the pool is a relaxation zone in terracotta and stone with sofas and armchairs, perfect for enjoying convivial moments.
The newly constructed pool next to the house looks out over the Carmignanesi hills. Surrounded by a wooden deck and equipped with sunbeds and deck chairs, the pool area offers complete relaxation perfumed by the bushes of rosemary, lavender and flowers surrounding it. It is also accessible from various points in the garden. The rectangular pool measures 8 x 4 metres with a constant depth of 1.45 m; access to the water is by ladder. The purification plant is chlorine and it has internal lighting. At the guests' disposal is a cold-water shower.
