This is a classic stone Tuscan farmhouse that dates back to the XIX century. It has been fully and authentically restored, using local materials such as pietra serena and chestnut wood. The location of the property offers magnificent views of the Tuscan hills and to the front of the Tyrrhenian coast stretching as far as "Corsica Island". The sun drenched olive groves, the smell of the wild time and herbs in the summer, the clusters of wild flowers in the spring, the clear unpolluted air, the silence make this little corner of Tuscany unique.
There are two independent holiday accomodations available, each with a private outdoor space for sunbathing or eating ?al fresco?.
Pets are welcome at Ligoracce, but please let us now in advance if you wish to bring them too.

Bees, horses and wild nature
Choose your favourite way to live the countryside: help with the "smielatura", the collection of honey and try some of the scented honey for breakfast; watch our horses being groomed and prepared for a ride; discover wild orchids in the field around the farmhouse; watch the red sun set from your porch sipping a glass of wine; take up painting.
Or simply watch the huge sky at night and myriads of stars and constellations.
Historical sites and towns
The farmhouse is favorably positioned to visit some amongst the most beautiful towns in Tuscany: Pisa, Siena, Volterra, S. Gimignano, Lucca, Firenze and the traditional villages of Bolgheri, Castagneto Carducci, Casale Marittimo.
Nestled within the " Golfo di Baratti " lays the necropoli etrusca of Populonia, today part of the interesting "Parco Archeologico e Naturalistico."
Seaside and Beaches
