2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleep 4-6 each property, Max 8 when booked together.

The villette are situated at ‘Faro del Castelluccio’, a development of small houses in the woods, on a tranquil hill near to Monteverdi Marittimo in the Costa Etrusca area of Tuscany. The gardens have a beautiful view over the Val di Cornia towards Monteverdi and Monterotondo, and in the distance the island of Elba. The houses can be rented separately or together for 2 families who wish to be near each other. They are well furnished to a high standard in a rustic and comfortable style and each has a garden and patio for outdoor living. Most of the properties nearby are owned by Italians wishing to escape from the heat and pollution of the cities in summer. There are some lovely walks in the woods directly from the door. At 500 mt distance, shared swimming pool (ca. 25x15 Mt), open from 28 May to 30 September with children's club, There is also a restaurant and minimarket. Wifi available at restaurant.

Wonderful holiday in lesser known part of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
This is the third time we have stayed here over the last few years and each time the experience has been fantastic. The quiet and peaceful location set amongst the hills in southern Tuscany is magnificent and the peaceful countryside is dotted with small villages yet a few minutes from long sandy beaches on the coast. We visited local markets for the shopping and food, the beaches were very clean and easily accessible. On site there is a stunning swimming pool (half Olympic) with a small restaurant and café whilst you can also pop out to a number of local restaurants if necessary. The area itself offers a great combination of seaside, mountains and history. The accommodation is modern yet constructed in the traditional Tuscan style and comfortable and very roomy. Outside there is a wonderful patio where we enjoyed our breakfast each day looking at the view stretching across the mountains. All in all it just gets harder to leave each time we visit!

Stunning views over the Tuscan Hills and Valleys

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over the Easter period in 2013. The cottage is very comfortable and warm and really gives you the idea of living in the middle of the Tuscan countryside. It is situated up in the hills above Castagneto Carducci (one of the local hilltop medieval villages) which is very popular with tourists, whereas the cottage's location is far more quiet. Ideal for some lovely walks. The swimming pool was obviously not open at that time, but looked fabulous just perched on a terrace with uninterrupted views. It was very easy to find some little rustic restaurants in the nearby villages. The sea was only about 20/ 30 minutes away. We visited Livorno, Florence Lucca and Pisa from here. Not very long using the motorways. Will definitely stay again, maybe when the pool is open.

2 weeks at the end of July 2011

  • 5 of 5
My wife and our three kids stayed in this property for two weeks. There are two bedrooms and an easy pull out bed in the main room. The place is compact, clean, well maintained and has everything you need for a good self catering holiday. We particulalrly liked the small garden/patio for evening meals - great views.
The kids enjoyed access to the pool which has spectacular views but the local bar (because it has a monopoly over the area is quite expensive).
The area is great for a get away place - very quiet - not for people seeking an urban experience.
The coast line near by is stunning for people who enjoy unspoilt beach/dune/forest areas - we would recommend Rimigliano about 25 mins drive.
Sassetta (about 10 mins drive) is a good spot for ice cream/cheap pizza and some shops and is now the nearest cash point as the one in Montiverdi is closed.
The area is good for wine and the local shop is Montiverdi is well worth a visit although it takes w while to get what you want from the owner as it is more of a show than a retail experience and be prepared to haggle over his special price - wild boar, cheese, olive oil and wine are good - although you might also want to drive off into the hiils to find a cooperative for good wine deals.
If you fancy a drive Siena, Florence and Pisa are great day trips.
Overall - very happy and would recommend.

Owner's Response: We are always very pleased when our guests have a good holiday at our house. We Also would recommend Rimigliano for a glorious beach. The sea is safe for children and the sand lovely. There are also nice picnic spots under the pine trees for your lunch. The bar at the pool can be a bit expensive but the food is good and the views are spectacular.

Schöner Urlaub in der Toskana

  • 4 of 5
Das Haus liegt mitten im Nirgendwo in einer kleinen Feriensiedlung die noch relativ neu scheint. Fahrt zum Meer in Donoratico ca. 20-25 Minuten. Es ist alles da was man braucht. Sehr schön und liebevoll eingerichtet. Beste Ausgangslage für Ausflüge nach Volterra, San Gimignano.Der Ausblick von der Terrasse ist wunderschön! Preis-Leistung absolut Top.

This is ideal country for walking, cycling, horse riding or touring. The hills abound with wildlife, from tiny birds to wild boar and deer. For those wanting to see the sights, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena are all within easy reach. Half an hour will bring you to one of the best sandy beaches in Tuscany at Castagneto.

There are also many vineyards in the area which can be visited to buy or just to taste. Many of the 'Supertuscan' wines such as Ornellaia and Sassicaia are grown nearby.
