Clean, spacious, close to autostrada, convenient, gracious hosts, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of anything negative to say. Giulio and Rita could not have been kinder or more helpful. With a kitchen, a TV room, 2 large bedrooms, and 2 full baths with air conditioning, what's not to like. You walk out the door and you're looking at the beautiful Tuscan hills. Close by is a local bar if you want a drink or quick sandwich. An excellent ristorante, where many local folks go, is less than a 10 minute walk. A nice modern grocery store is 5 minutes by car. Using this historic house as a home base, we were able to not only enjoy nearby Montecatini and Pistoia, but made day trips to many special spots---Florence, Lucca, Portofino, Bologna, Barga, San Gimignano, Vinci and Siena. We were easily able to get back to the house at night. The price is very reasonable too. So, it was a 5 star place all the way for our family.

A wonderful place to stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived we were met by the owner with a warm welcome. Giulio went over the property for us and then made suggestions on where to visit and how to travel around the area. This was extremely helpful. The property is a wonderful place to stay. I would have no problem recommending this apartment.

Great Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

Giulio and Mrs. Rita were perfect hosts for our five night stay. He answered questions we had regarding sight-seeing and even gave us a few suggestions on places to see and restaurants around the area. Mrs. Rita does not speak much English, but we were able to communicate enough. She is a breath of fresh air! We did go to the Grotta Giusti for an afternoon of relaxation the first day that we arrived to the home. This was only a five minute walk from Giulio's home which was very convenient. The home was spacious and very clean with comfortable beds in both rooms. There were four (women) of us staying at the rental, and we were all able to get ready for the day between the two bathrooms. Monsummano is a nice quiet city located between Lucca & Florence. Unfortunately, we did not make it to Lucca, but did take the train into Florence on two days. The cost is about 5.50 Euro/person to Florence and takes about 45 minutes to get there. This is much more convenient than driving and trying to find parking in Florence.

If we ever get the opportunity to visit Tuscany again, we would book this rental again. Thanks for your hospitality Giulio & Mrs. Rita!

In about 5 decades of travel in most continents this was superb.

  • 5 of 5

Large spacious rooms with frescoes to admire as advertised,welcome biscotti, fruit, wine and many other base items. However the real treat was the location on the edge of town with lovely walks up hills for fantastic views over surrounding land. We were able to walk to restaurants, shops and one night on way home saw first ever firefly display. The other benefit was the warmth and spontaneity of hosts. We knew two people in Italy-- Giulio and his mother, Rita. One day having walked into town to buy birthday cards and have a nice coffee we returned for lunch via supermarket where we bumped into Rita! Immediately we were offered a lift home and on delivering parcels to house she suggested we share lunch with her. What a treat to have home cooked Italian food!

Giulio is one of the most considerate,generous hosts with time and energy to help. Again we were invited to join him and lovely girlfriend and enjoyed one of the most special days of my life-- visiting three medieval villages, walking in woods with robinia trees in full flower and scenting the air and daring to traverse high swing bridges!

Thank you to three beautiful new friends for going well over the required effort -- maynyou in turn have lovely holidays in future.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This rental is one of the most beautiful places we've stayed in. The 2 bedrooms are HUGE, even by North American standards (we're Canadian). The bathroom with the footed tub was also huge. There was lots of hot water available when needed. The kitchen was well fitted with the ability to prepare meals. The beds were comfortable and, with the shutters and windows closed at night, it was dark and very quiet. The laundry facilities are just outside the unit, and it was wonderful to be able to wash clothes while we were there. Giulio and his mom were so kind and helped us with anything we needed. He also suggested a number of great places to visit once he knew what we were interested in seeing. We enjoyed our time here greatly, and would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to stay in the area. (Lucca, Volterra, Pisa and other places are all within easy driving distance.)

Marvellous Monsummano Terme

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully maintained, spacious, well equipped, exceptionally clean and nicely decorated apartment with lovely linens and towels. It has ample parking and is located near several safe and quaint villages. A car is a must but it is close to the local train station that makes travelling to Florence, Lucca, Sienna, and the Cinque Terre, etc., easy and hassle free. Finding parking in these villages can be a bit of a challenge so taking the train was helpful. Giulio and Rita (mother and son) were exceptionally helpful, responsive and kind. They go out of their way to ensure that their guests feel welcome, take the time to explain where and how to get around and what to see. Giulio offers to take people on tours and he is very genuine and kind. He responds promptly to all emails. Written material, maps, discounts on restaurants and spa treatments are available and helpful when booking this property. If you like a combination of quaint with access to a multitude of villages and cities then this is a lovely place to stay. The hosts are marvellous and would highly recommend this rental property.
