Amazing Tuscan holiday
Submitted: September 6, 2011

The house was wonderful, a true Tuscan farmhouse, spacious with fabulous views. In the internet listing, it did not show how elevated the property is; the views over Montecatini are incredible. (Ask for a map in advance, as it is not easy to find the house.) The pool was great, and the hosts made us feel very welcome. It was very hot when we were there in July and the airconditioning is very limited. In a cooler season, this would not be a problem at all, as the house has thick walls and shutters. We enjoyed the walk to the castle above the house, and the olive groves surrounding us. We used the house as a central base and took day trips, by train to Florence and car trips to the Chianti region, Lucca, Cinque Terre, Pisa and Sienna. The location is perfect for all of these. I would highly recommend this property as a great place to stay and a cultural experience, all in one. Outstanding.
