Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The home interior is as beautiful as the pictures. Like living in a museum. Guilio and his mother very gracious hosts. Home well appointed with good amenities. Only problem is that Monsummano Terme is a little small in terms of restaurants. Fine if you eat in but dining out not great. Good restaurant down the road but closed for one weeks holidays when we were there. Recommend trying Montecatini Terme nearby.

Experience life in a palace situated between Florence & Pisa (a perfect location for day trips)

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a dream if you like antiquity and design; it has beautiful decoration, spacious rooms, lots of woodwork and it is immaculate. We were greeted by our host, Giulio, who made sure we had plenty of information about the region in order to enjoy our stay at the maximum. This apartment comes with all the conveniences of a home, even with a garden dining area.

The apartment is at a 5 minutes walk from the Grotta Giusti resort which I highly recommend if you are in a mood for spa treatments, mineral swirl pools, underground adventure and luxury…my sisters and I were totally satisfied.

We tried three of the nearby restaurants on top of mountains with panoramic views… all had great food and spectacular surroundings . We had a car which made it easier to travel all around the area and were glad to have our own easy parking spot that came with the apartment. We only have compliments to give to Giulio.

This is an absolutely beautiful property in the lovely village of Mosmmano Terme'!

  • 5 of 5

My wife Julie and I just returned from an amazing two-week visit to Monsummano Terme', Italy. We had the great pleasure and tremendous good fortune of staying in an absolutely beautiful 1500 square foot, two bedroom, two bathroom flat owned by Mr. Giulio Casciana, and his lovely mother Ms. Rita Casciani.

We were remarkably pleased with our lovely accommodations and the hospitality of this wonderful family. Upon arrival we were met by Guilio and Rita and found the flat immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. The kitchen is fully equipped with nearly brand new modern appliances to include a dishwasher and all of the necessary cookware, flatware, dishes one could hope to find. The beds were very comfortable, and all of the furnishings were gorgeous. This flat also has air conditioning which we enjoyed as it was over 90 degrees each day of our stay. A washing machine is also available on site, but be prepared to air dry your clothes. This home is located across the street from a small cafe' and cappuccino bar, and within easy walking distance of a delightful and delicious local restaurant. We also enjoyed a number of nearby hiking trails which allowed us to explore the nearby foothills. All in all, we had the best vacation we've ever enjoyed, in large measure due to the kindness and gracious generosity of Guilio and Rita Casciana.

My only recommendation is American guests should purchase and bring a 110/220 electric transformer for lap top computers, cell phones, digital cameras, and personal care appliances. Visitors should also brush up on your Italian language skills. While Guilio speaks excellent English, most of the local population does not. As Julie and I have both traveled extensively overseas for both work and pleasure, we both agreed that the time we spent in Monsummano Terme' was the best travel and vacation experience we have ever enjoyed. We absolutely loved this flat, the village of Monsummano Terme', and the Casciana Family. We hope to visit again in the future, and encourage you to do the same. This is a "Five-Star" HomeAway accommodation!

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!
