Villa Lungomonte sits gracefully at the top of a long drive, surrounded by a walled park that extends to the small village of Asciano Pisano. Constructed in the 15th century as a grand country villa, it offers all the grace of a bygone era combined with modern conveniences such as air-conditioned bedrooms on the first floor, a lift, satellite television and fax. The ground floor features high, vaulted ceilings with vast living areas, including a ballroom. The bedrooms, distributed over the two upper floors, are all spacious and furnished with antiques. Broad lawns lead from the villa to a large swimming pool partly shaded by umbrella pines and an ancient gingko tree. A sweeping view that includes the Tower of Pisa and a full summer kitchen at the pool mean that one can see the essential sights without actually having to drive anywhere or queue up. There are several restaurants within a few minutes' walk of the villa, and those wanting a little more exercise can explore the property's hundreds of acres of forests and olive groves extending up into the Monte Pisano.
