VILLA MAURA IN TUSCANY

Fucecchio Villa Rental Photos and Description

Family holiday self catering accomodation with garden, scenic pool. Free WiFi

LA SCUOLA holiday home is a small holiday complex in a very quiet countryside (within the Parco delle Cerbaie) overlooking a green valley. It allows you to relax, while being able, at the same time, to be in less than 1 hour in almost every tourist destination in Tuscany (Lucca, Pisa, Vinci, San Gimignano, Florence, the beach). So, in the morning you can have a massage by the pool, take a walk to the little country shops or go to the supermarkets in Fucecchio (5 kms) with your car, then visit one or more tourist attraction in Tuscany, come back to enjoy a swim our fantastic pool (12x6), relax in the large equipped garden sipping an aperitivo while the tomato sauce boils in the kitchen, then have a relaxing dinner in the garden alfresco. The 6 basic apartments in the former school building have 1, 2 or even 4 bedrooms while the brand new villa offers some more comforts and sleeps up to 6. Parking inside the property. Nice country pizzeria / restaurant at walking distance. Free Wi-Fi.

*Everyday Life*

A big plus for all our guests is that we live nearby. We will welcome you, show you around, provide maps of the area and give you a list of restaurants and enjoyable excursions. We are always on hand if you need us but we will leave you to your well deserved holiday!

We sometimes see that families arrive here with the car full of groceries and food (after maybe a long journey under the hot Italian sun). Please note that most of the food you buy at home is available also here. Our local supermarket is open from 8AM to 9PM every day except Sunday; and 9AM to 8 PM on every other Sunday. Another supermarket nearby is open from 8AM to 8PM and also every Sunday morning from 9AM to 12.30AM. And another smaller grocery shop, Gelsastore, is open any day of the year from 4 in the morning to 1 at night!

* Market *

A medley of colors and scents awaits you every Wednesday morning in Fucecchio in Piazza Aldo Moro.

*Restaurants!*

One of the reasons to rent a holiday accommodation is that you can cook your own food and avoid eating out. You can shop at farmers' markets, try local recipes, keep your children entertained while cooking... But sometimes you just want to relax and unwind with a nice glass of wine and let others cook! Among other local area information, we will give you a list of nearby restaurants (one of them is at walking distance!) we usually go to! And we will be happy to call and reserve a table for you, if you like!

*Farmers' Market Agripolis*

Local organic and quality food in Piazza Montanelli every third Saturday of the month, 4pm - 7pm

*Palio di Fucecchio (horse race)*

Every year since 1981, there is this horse race in Fucecchio. The town is divided into contrade (just like Siena!). You will spend your holidays at La Scuola Holiday Home, so in contrada Torre, whose colours are white and blue. It is a brilliant experience. Before 'the' day, there are lots of feasts and festivities in each contrada, possibly al fresco, in order to spend nice time together, get to know each other and have a home style meal with some good wine. The date of the event is usually the third Sunday of May. In the morning you can attend the historical parade with its lively display of 1200 persons in rich locally made costumes along the streets of Fucecchio. The 3 afternoon races take place at la Buca del Palio (Via Fratelli Rosselli in Fucecchio). Palio might last until sunset! The races only last a minute or two, so you have to spend some time in Fucecchio beforehand, soaking up the atmosphere and the rivalry between the different districts, each of which is represented in the first two races. For a fucecchiese, Palio is like Football World Cup for Italians! The date for 2014 is the 18th of May!

*Infiorata di Corpus Domini (flower carpets)*:

On the Sunday of Corpus Domini the streets of historic Fucecchio are covered by beautiful floral carpets. It is a quite common tradition in central Italy that originated in St. Peter's Basilica in 1265.

In Fucecchio the custom of sprinkling the streets with flowers and forest sprigs compose sacred figures, dates back to the 30es but it was only in 1990 that the Flower Festival has become a tradition.

The carpet of flowers are displayed in the old city centre, starting from and coming back to the Collegiate Church. The materials used are many varieties of seasonal flowers (poppies, brooms, carnations, roses ...) and many other type of natural material (grapes, coffee, wood chips ...).

*Padule di Fucecchio, a bird watchers' paradise*

The Padule di Fucecchio is the largest non-coastal marshland area in Italy (around 1,800 hectares!).

The Padule is one of the last refuges for many plant species (the yellow floating heart or water fringe, now very rare in Tuscany, or white and yellow pondlilies, etc.), and is a big attraction for birdwatching enthusiasts, especially during the spring migration. Over 150 species can be observed throughout the year, at least fifty of which are nesting birds. Of particular interest are the herons, which nest in colonies, and migratory birds like the stilt bird, crane and black stork. There are 9 nature trails in the marshes, most on foot, some by car.

I was born in Fucecchio and I have been living here all of my life. Even if I have been working in the fashion industry for 2 decades now, I am more and more interested in the holiday rental world. I also attended a course to become a professional manager in hospitality and tourism management; it was fun to come back to school. I even started a blog about everyday life in Tuscany. You learn something new every day!

Ms. Tiziana Fierli purchased this villa in 1998

My father bought this property in the late '90. It was in such a state! No heating, no electricity, no running water! He started to restore it (with Italian burocracy, this process can take a lot of time and even more patience!), then came with this idea: 'Why don't we rent to tourists?'. At that time (pre-internet era for me) I thought it was a terrible idea. 'Tourists in Fucecchio? This is not going to happen!'. How wrong I was!

It is easy to fall in love with this location! Splendid views over a tranquil valley, fantastic pool. Real possibility of reaching from nearby Empoli train station: Florence in 24 minutes, Pisa in 28 minutes and Siena in 45 minutes (stress free solution), or Lucca in under 30 minutes by car.

Great apartment near Pisa, Lucca and Florence

Villa Maura is wonderful. It is perfectly located for day trips to Lucca, Pisa and Florence, all about an hour away. It was lovely to sit out front and drink our morning coffee while looking out over the rolling hills and distant vineyards of the countryside. The owners are great, very communicative. This villa is a little off the beaten path so it's very relaxing. The trattorias in the area are authentic, with amazing food and are truly home cooking.

Önska alla trevlig tid i Villa Maura!

  • Submitted: Apr 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
Om man aldrig förr har varit i Italien, så är den första utmaningen att hitta vägen till Fuccecio och Villa Maura utan att gå vilse på de små vägar i de pittoreska medeltider byar eller att inte krocka med en av de söta, ofta gamla, små italienska bilar, som susar genom korsningar och rondeller…
När vi var framme, såg vi den orangefärgade Villan uppe på en av de oräkneliga kullarna. Husets läge ger hyresgästen möjligheten till en 360 grad blick över hela omgivningen och om vädret är klart är det till och med möglig att se dem (på våren) vita topparna av de Apenninerna som ligger 100 km åt norr.
Villa Maura ligger lugnt men inte helt ensam. Grannhuset är också ett feriehus och heter ”Skolan”. Längs den smala vägen ligger det flera små gårdar. Huset har en egen liten gräsmatta som är exklusiv för Villa Mauras hyresgäst. Men det finns en liten lekplats i en olivlund bara 50 m bort. Det finns också en pool, som tyvärr inte gick att använda eftersom vädret inte tillät det i början av april.
Själva huset har stora ljusa rum som var rena och fina när vi kom. Köket är litet men välutrustad och har som tur är en diskmaskin. Det finns tre badrum i huset som kan vara av stor föredel när man kommer med 5 personer som vi gjorde. I källare finns det också en tvättmaskin.
De två sovrum är relativ stora och det finns till och med ett litet rum som walk-in cupboard och en balkong.
Den bästa överraskningen bjöd huset framförallt för våra tonåringar med ett stort bordtennisrum i källaren.
En mapp med massor med utflyktsförslag log i huset och vi testade ganska många utflykter. Alla var lyckade. Speciell spännande var Grotta di Vento – en droppstengrotta i bergen. Till Pisa måste man så klart och det som är roligast är att se hur alla turister håller på att ta samma bild av tornet.
Apropå Pisa. Om man inte är van vid södra Europa är det kanske en bra ide, att alltid räknar efter växelpengarna!
Ett utflyktsmål till som vi stötte på per slump var Museo storia naturale di Pisa – (Via Roma 79, 56011 Calci - Pisa). Ett naturhistoriskt museum som är fascinerande.
Eftersom det var april, var medelhavet lite kallt men att gå till stranden väster om Pisa var ändå en lyckad utflykt framförallt för vår treåring som fick gräva i varm sand.
Efter 10 dagar var vi alla utvilade och nöjda och 2 kilo tyngre av all god mat.
Vi tackar Tiziana att vi fick låna hennes hus och önska alla trevlig tid i Villa Maura.

Villa Maura an ideal Tuscan base for the family

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 11, 2012

Villa Maura proved to be an inspired choice for our Tuscan experience. Based in the countryside outside Fuccechio it was a great base to get out and explore what the region has to offer.

We spent 4 nights and would highly recommend the property to anyone as a holiday rental. We hav a 14 year old and 10 year and they happily shared a room whilst the master has a balcony to sit out and enjoy the view of the pool (which was a great bonus at the end of a day's sightseeing for everyone!). The table tennis table down in the basement also got a good workout. There's lots of living space and bathrooms to keep everyone happy!

The property is immaculately presented with everything you need to have a relaxed stay. Tiziana was a great host and a fountain of information on how and where to go in the area. Lucca is a short drive and a beautiful town to visit and hire bikes to ride around the walls. Florence we would ecommend driving to Empoli station and getting the train (which is inexpensive and frequent). Locally San Miniato is worth a visit. Nearby Fuccechio has a large supermarket to stock up everything you need and with your own bbq at Villa Maura it's nice, on a long overseas trip, to have options to cook at home whilst the kids jump in the pool.

We'd defintely come back again and would stay longer if we could. Thanks again Tiziana; it's a place that we're sure to talk about alot over the years to come.

Fabulous trip to Villa Maura

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 30, 2011
  • Stayed: Aug 2011
This is our second visit to La Scuola in Tuscany and our group consisted of four adults. It has an ideal location for sight seeing, being close to Pisa, Florence, and Lucca, not to mention the vineyards and wine tasting, but you do need a vehicle as it is special in its remoteness from urban life. It is in a beautiful setting, within the rolling hills and picturesque scenery you expect from the area. There is a swimming pool to be shared by the few apartments but it is mainly very quiet for a relaxing day with a good book. We have stayed in both an apartment and the Villa Maura which is an exceptional property with all the facilities a family could need. Both met our needs more than adequately.
Tiziana the poprietor gives exceptional customer service and this year she helped us with a series of visits with local dignitaries and local places in the area in our efforts to establish some things of unexpected but special historical interest to my family. She has, on both our visits, offered her time and service willingly to help us out. Tizzie even arranged our first basket of shopping to ensure we had groceries for our arrival as it was late in the day and at the weekend.
We enjoy a balance between touring and relaxing and this gives the opportunity to do both. If you don't wish to drive into cities there is adequate railway provision locally to get where ever you wish to go.
The town of Fuccechio has an open air market each week and there are large local supermarkets close at hand. There are detailed information packs in the Villa and apartments to help you. I would highly recommend this property as a base to chill out or as a base to see the wonders of historical Tuscany or as for us a chance to do both. Thank you Tizzie for helping us have a wonderful 2 weeks holiday and for helping us put into context our family history.
