AMAZING TUSCAN HOME WITH VIEWS!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

STAY AT THE SCENIC TUSCANY ROOM

  • 5 of 5
Nora and Fabrizio were wonderful hosts. Their house is beautiful and spacious. It is very clean and comfortable. We stayed two nights and had wonderful conversations with the hosts and other guests. They had guests from Russia, Germany, India, France, and Italy while we were there. We had a wonderful time. It is a great place to go to Florence, Pisa, or Volterre. Did I mention they have a beautiful deck with killer views of Tuscany? We highly endorse the Special – Scenic Tuscany Room.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you “had a wonderful time”, and “wonderful conversations with the hosts and other guests” from many different countries. It seems like you were able to profit from the close proximity to other touristic sites and then return to relax afterward in "spaciousness" admiring "killer views" .

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Fabrizio and Nora are wonderful people! Their house is beautiful, very clean, with a great view of Tuscany from the terrace! They were very helpful and patient with us. We got ourselves lost at a late hour (and we lost the house key), but they gracefully and mercifully helped us and were grateful that we made it back safely. Then, early in the morning, we had to catch a train, but the bus line didn't start until later and no taxis were available, so we figured we would have to miss the train and hopefully catch a later one, but Fabrizio woke up and drove us to the train station (just in time- we made the train)! They were a huge blessing to us!

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.
