Overview

Montopoli Val d'Arno House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Check us out on Facebook for more info - www.facebook.com/vistaitaly

With its 3-levels, large terraces, panoramic views and stunning interior, this house recently built in the Tuscan style with an open concept is the ideal place for a large group of people, or individuals renting just a single room. On the main floor, one can enjoy a meal either at the kitchen table, the dining table or, in good weather, on the large terrace. Regardless of the season, extra-large French windows and doors let visitors enjoy stunningly contrasting skies, and colorful sunsets all year around. The house includes a master suite, four additional bedrooms and three additional bathrooms. It also provides full kitchen facilities, large living and dining areas, laundry room, Wi-Fi and air conditioning (not very common in Italy).

Served by a major highway, the location is perfect for day trips to the internationally renowned tourist centers of the region: Florence (34 miles), Pisa (19 miles), Lucca (20 miles), San Gimignano (31 miles), Volterra (28 miles), the beach at Viareggio (39 miles) and the Chianti wine region (48 miles); and, even, for the ones that like early starts Cinque Terre to the north-west, or the Brunello-wine region south of Siena.

Within minutes, one can sit in a charming pizzeria, or in a local-specialty restaurant. Full-service supermarkets, banks, and two train stations can be reached also by bus.

The house is attached and part of a small development, some of which has not yet been completed.

About Nora, Fabrizio & Max

Check us out on Facebook for more info - www.facebook.com/vistaitaly

Nora grew up in California and met Fabrizio in Florence--married 41+ years with 5 grown kids. Recently retired from teaching elementary special education (Nora) and financial management and returned to Tuscany where Fabrizio grew up. We also live in Southern California.

Nora, Fabrizio & Max purchased this house in 2008

Why Nora, Fabrizio & Max chose Montopoli Val d'Arno

Fabrizio grew up in Castel del Bosco so we love it and have a few old friends there. It is rural but close to Florence and Pisa.

What makes this house unique

Our house is in the heart of the true provincial Tuscany but with easy access to a major highway. The building is new so it's large and open concept but built in the traditional Tuscan style. It has many terraces and French doors. The attractive village of Castel del Bosco has fresh air and quiet, except for occasional church bells.

The Perfect Location to See Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property for the month of July and found it to be everything I thought it would be. Family and friends, seventeen altogether, joined me throughout the month and everyone, without exception, commented about the spaciousness, cleanliness, comfort, and location. Everything that was depicted on the website were accurate portrayals of what to expect.

Fabrizio and Nora were perfect hosts who sent a lot of pre-trip information which made planning much easier. They also responded quickly on the occasion of our arrival about a small issue. They addressed it immediately and, within 24 hours, everything was fine. This property is perfectly located to visit so many areas in Tuscany but we were also able to easily travel to Venice and Rome for several days at a time. The Pontedera train station was so accessible that we used it extensively for our travels.

La Piazzetta became our "hangout" and Laura and her husband, the owners, were very friendly and helpful especially during our first few days in the area, giving us directions and answering questions. And their pizza is fabulous!! We all agreed that it was the best we ate while in Italy.

The Varramista wine tasting tour was excellent and only a five-minute drive away. Catarina was the tour guide who made our visit so enjoyable. Because I had groups of people arrive at different times during the month, I actually experienced the wine tasting three times during my stay. I highly recommend it as a stop on anyone's tour.

I rented a car for the month and, after the first day of driving, had no problem finding my way around and figuring out the roundabouts. The train station, grocery stores, and banks were easy to find and all very convenient. The highway between Florence and Pisa was also easily accessible, less than five minutes away.

If I return to Tuscany for any length of time, I will certainly book this property again. It provided the base for a wonderful experience!!

Owner's Response: You were a wonderful guest, who not only kept us informed on things that were going on but helped us work out some bugs in the newly installed central air conditioning system. Thanks, again! We're also pleased that based on our place's location you and your family and friends could make a trip even to Venice in a reasonable time. I understand that the high speed trains are making a difference in travel time giving more options to travelers.travelers more options.
Hoping to have you, your family and your friends as guests again in the future,
Nora

perfect place

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Fabrizio's place in Tuscany in 2012 and had a great time. Fabrizio is the perfect host. He was available and ready to help even before we asked him for it. He is very trustworthy, and reliable, and the next time we went to Tuscany in 2014 the choice was very simple -we spent our honeymoon there. We also recommended the place to our friends and when they went there they were amazed.

Beautiful home, very nice area to base from.

  • 4 of 5
We had 4 couples and this was a great house to base from, beautiful, clean and fully equipped, friendly neighbors that even drove us to a restaurant because we did not understand with the language difference. Owners really went above and beyond by helping us find a driver for a day trip.

Modern, roomy Tuscan home

  • 5 of 5
We have rented properties numerous times in different parts of the world and one of the biggest risks is a property that is accurately represented. This property is, with the pictures and descriptions provided on the website as well as what we received from the owners via e-mail. It is extremely roomy, we had 4 adults and 4 children during our stay. Modern, well-equipped and clean. The location is ideal if you want to explore this region, your within a 1 hour drive of many beautiful villages, Tuscan hill towns as well as more well-known sites such as Pisa and Florence. I can highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a roomy, modern, clean and well-equipped home to enjoy this beautiful Italian region.

Owner's Response: Tony, we're so glad that our house met your expectations in attributes and convenience of location. Other clients have commented that it is really nice to have enough space to relax in with friends and family, but you're the first to write it. Thank you.
Please return in future.

Nora & Fabrizio

Tuscany at its best!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! The location was perfect. Situated in the heart of Tuscany, this Villa is a short drive to all the hot spots that you would want to visit. It is located in a small farming community away from big city traffic. The Villa is big with large bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was also large and fully stocked with tableware and appliances. What better way to be greeted after a long plane ride than with friendly people and a bottle of wine? We made a day-trip every day in a different direction. Fabrizio and Nora were fantastic hosts. Fabrizio helped us map out each day-trip including the best places to visit, best times to visit, driving directions, train schedules, ticket costs, and restaurant selection. He also helped us get our lost luggage delivered. Nora even offered to cook us breakfast! Where else do you get that kind of hospitality? We would go back there in a second. Be sure to rent a car with a GPS to make your driving experience easier. Italian roundabout intersections can be tricky and a GPS will guide you to your destination smoothly. Our favorite destinations were Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Sienna, Bolgheri, and Cinque Terre (including Rio Miggiore, Monerosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, and Manarola). If Tuscany is your passion, this is the place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you, John and Karen, for the glowing review! We are pleased that you enjoyed the central location in Tuscany for sight seeing. Being so close to the freeway, even though we have a farmland view, is a great advantage.

Wonderful hospitality in a great location

  • 5 of 5
The house is new, clean and very beautiful with a nice view of fields and mountains. It is perfectly equiped and for people who want to cook it is ideal. The location is central and is very convenient for travel in Tuscana. We drove by car and one day went to SanGeminiano and Voltera and the other day to Lucca and Vinci and more places in the area. All trips were very beautiful. Nora and Fabricio made us very welcome and cared for all our needs and also invited us for a drink in the evenings. The house is much better than a hotel room and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Our home resides in the historic Tuscan village of Castel Del Bosco a part of Montopoli in Val d'Arno in the Province of Pisa. Within walking distance there is an amazing local pizza parlor as well as a small convenience store for the bare necessities and a bus stop. In the neighboring town, you can take a short drive or bus ride, to a full supermarket (10 mins) and bank (5 mins). There is also a major train stop within a 15 min drive in the neighboring town of Pontedera. From this station you have direct access to Florence and Pisa central stations, no switching of trains needed.

The location of the house provides a great staging point to see the best of what Tuscany has to offer. The village is located centrally to some of the best sites in Tuscany. Florence (34 miles), Pisa (19 miles), Lucca (20 miles), San Gimignano (31 miles), Volterra (28 miles), the beach at Viareggio (39 miles) and the Chianti wine region (48 miles) all can be reached in under an hour by car.
