The house sleeps 7 plus baby cot. Couples, groups of friends and families have stayed over the years and sometimes solo guests. Il Rivo is where you can experience a taste of quintessential Tuscan living! It provides a refuge from the clamour of everyday life with it's thick stone walls, chestnut beamed ceilings, stylish bathrooms and colourful interior decor. The setting amidst olive groves, surrounded by pine, acacia, and fruit trees offers glorious views over the densely wooded hillsides studded with medieval hilltop villages. One of the owners is an architect who has lovingly renovated the house with traditional materials to include an ensuite bathroom, a modernised family bathroom and a third bedroom. The two double bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house, the main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, and the second dual aspect double bedroom is near to the family bathroom allowing a degree of independence. The third bedroom has a bunk bed and resembles a small chapel with French doors, two windows and a pitched roof. A large wrought iron day bed in an inner hallway between the main bedroom and the twin room provides a further sleeping option, a window provides natural light.
There is a terrace with a grassed sunbathing area, and a vine-clad pergola for 'alfresco' dining. It offers wonderful respite whilst enjoying the magnificent view across the valley after a days sightseeing
There are many tourist attractions on the doorstep: Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Tuscan Riviera and skiing at Abetone. Nearer are several lovely swimming pools (one with a curved water slide!). For the more energetic there are established walking trails, and cycling.
