MONTE CASTELLARE - PISA, TUSCANY
A blank -green, in fact- canvas onto which projecting your Creativity, Vision and Passion.
"Buy land, they are not making it anymore" - Mark Twain
Do you dream of putting your green and ethical beliefs to test? Have you ever fantasized about the Tuscany countryside?
How would you like to restore a breath-taking corner of Tuscany to its former beauty? To have your own production of Extra(ordinary) Virgin Olive Oil, made to your Organic or Biodynamic standards and requirements? To implement the production of any other agricultural and natural Tuscan products you might dream of: olives, honey, herbs, spices, grapes, berries, wine, cheese, eggs, small animals, herbal therapy? To transform them and maybe serve them onsite? In a glamping environment?
If so, now up for grabs, you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, directly from the owner: a large parcel of spectacular land, moments away from Pisa (and its international airport), enjoying unique views of the Leaning Tower, the coast in the distance and wonderful climate all year round. The size of this land is around 30 hectares i.e. 75 acres.
This land -part of a protected area- is on the S/SE facing side of a hill overlooking the medieval town of Pisa, covered by thousands of 100-year-old olive trees, oak woods and mediterranean bush.
Of late the estate has not been tended to properly; the current tenant has been unable to unlock its full potential. However, the trees have kept producing tons of big, beautiful olives, mostly left unpicked.
If you had a philantropic drive, you could also host artistic and creative open-air events, where artists, makers, entrepreneurs and investors could mingle, exhibit works, exchange ideas and enjoy life - all in a beautiful and natural environment.

The estate includes three collapsed buildings: a very large one and two smaller ones, that could be restructured, subject to planning permission (though not for residential use).
Asking price in the range of:
390,000 Euro / 530,000 USD / 330,000 GBP (rate of exchange as of 22 November 2013; subject to fluctuation)
