Cottage in historic villa with two beds in Tuscany

The Cottage Villa Bodies, completely restored and independent, is located inside the Villa organs, the historic medieval Tuscan villa park. The passion for the garden of the owner and always of those who inhabited the tower-house made it a magical place, full of shades of colors and smells and magically where time stands still. And 'possible to take walks observing the many varieties of iris or under the shaded path of fragrant wisteria, observe the colors of roses or relax beside the pool a well-integrated into the surrounding environment. The hearty breakfasts, made with local, natural products, are served under a small pergola that juts out over the valley and are included in the price. Privacy is guaranteed in the cottage which has a separate entrance and has been expertly restored even in the details. A small dining area with an old sink is presented entering and then continue in the hot room by important curtains and finally ending in a delightful bath with shower.

Enchanting cottage with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

This was a girls' vacation through Italy and this was our second stop of our tour. Massimo, Monica & Catalina were very hospitable and opened up their home to us. Monica made the most delizioso apple pie for us every morning. Every thing about our breakfast was truly magical from the china to the beautiful silverware. We ate our breakfast outside overlooking Massimo's beautiful garden of flowers everywhere and looking out toward the mountains of Tuscany. Our cottage was decorated beautifully and very cozy. This was also convenient to Florence, only 20 min ride. We felt the true Tuscany spirit and recommend all to stay here. We hope to return back some day to leave the hustle bustle city life in the U.S. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Idyllisch mitten im Grünen!!

  • 5 of 5

Etwas versteckt in den Bergen der Toskana liegt die Villa Organi mit ihrem traumhaften Garten. Wir wurden sehr freundlich in Empfang genommen. Man tritt durch das Eisentor und erblickt direkt neben der Villa das kleine Ferienhaus. Es ist perfekt für einen Urlaub zu zweit; kleine Küche mit Marmorspülbecken und Esstisch (ohne Herd oder Kühlschrank), Doppelbett, Kleiderschrank und Couch befinden sich im angrenzenden Raum und ein kleines Bad mit Dusche. Das Haus ist rustikal mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Der Garten ist ein Traum, man kann täglich etwas Neues entdecken. Das Schwimmbad war nur für uns und ein ''Poolhaus'' mit extra Bad, Kühlschrank, Spüle und Terasse konnten wir auch nutzen. Der hauseigene Wein stand bereit und wurde uns als Willkommensgetränk unter der Pergola serviert.

Das Frühstück und die liebevolle Art der Anrichtung durch die Hausherrin war wundervoll. Wir wurden gut betreut und beraten, zu Ausflugszielen und Restaurantempfehlungen - diese teils Insider-Tipps hätten wir sonst wohl nicht entdeckt. Während unserer Abwesenheit wurde das Haus gereinigt und das Bett gemacht.

Fazit: Wär Ruhe und Erholung weit ab vom Trubel sucht ist hier genau richtig, und bei Bedarf kann man im nahen Florenz viel Trubel erleben.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

What a great magical place! A very private and secluded cottage in a huge beautiful garden. There's just 1 cottage so you have the swimmingpool all to yourself. The owners will do whatever it takes to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Monica serves a great breakfast and cooks lunch or dinner on request using ingredients from local farmers and their own vegetable garden. Massimo takes you on a tour through the garden and their own little museum! We absolutely enjoyed it!

Also important, Florence is just 15 or 20 minutes away by train from Prato.

I would definitely recommand this place to anyone who is looking for peace and quiet, great food and wines in a beautiful surrounding.

Villa organs is part of the ancient medieval village of Faltugnano inside the protected Calvana. The small town, mostly in stone, has a church and a country churchyard that surround it. An intense green fields with olive trees and a forest of cypress and oak trees surrounds the Villa Bodies garden, designed by the British owners of the last century and evokes the Anglo-Saxon taste with typical vegetation and particular in Tuscany. A shady wisteria path leading to a swimming pool that naturally surmounts a small plateau sunny. The cottage, independent from the tower-house, has been carefully restored respecting Tuscan traditions but ensuring every comfort. The breakfast, served in the shade of a small pergola, is a triumph of local produce expertly prepared by the owner with passion and imagination. Just a few kilometers drive to the ancient villa Il Mulinaccio, home of Sassetti and Strozzi here brought all the style and taste of the ancient Florentine families. The Nature Reserve Aquerino together all'ippovia and CAI paths instead provide an alternative to those who want to spend a vacation in harmony with nature. Ideal as a base for exploring the Tuscan countryside and cities of art such as Florence, Lucca, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and the Chianti area; The city of Prato is just a 10 minute drive and the airport of Florence is just 22 km from this paradise.
