-- ACCOMMODATION DESCRIPTION
Casa Montecuccoli is a house with two storeys 250 m2.
The hall on the ground floor takes you into a large dining room with vaulted ceilings, fireplace, wood oven, satellite TV and access to the garden outside.
From the hall you can also enter the newly designed kitchen with four-ring kitchen hob, dishwasher, oven, fridge, freezer, washing machine and dryer and access to the external covered terrace with table, chairs and barbecue for a traditional Tuscan "arrosto" (grill).
One of the five double bedrooms of the house, furnished in style and taste typical of the area, is also found on this floor( the bedroom has 1 double bed and 1 single bed). There are two bathrooms with shower.
Having climbed the stone staircase to the first floor you find yourself in a comfortable sitting room with fireplace, satellite TV and large windows (the original structure of the barn is visible) with a view of the garden, swimming pool and surrounding countryside. The ceilings with wooden beams and terracotta tiles, the latter also used to pave the floors, make the warm classic Tuscan style again apparent.
A corridor gives you access to the sleeping area of the house which has four double bedrooms (each with valuable olive-wood- floors and ceilings with beams and terracotta tiles, 1 double bedroom and 3 with twin beds all convertible in double), and 3 bathrooms with shower.
THE VILLA IS FULLY AIR CONDITIONED.
La villa es preciosa y está muy bien equipada. Hemos pasado unos días estupendos. Manuela es una persona encantadora. Estaba esperándonos y como era un día de mucho calor tenía puesto el aire acondicionado en toda la casa, cosa que agradecimos mucho. Es una casa para repetir.
The villa is more charming in person than in the pictures. It was full of Italian character yet completely up-to-date with modern bathrooms and amenities. The weather was unseasonably hot when we visited in the summer, but the air conditioning and pool made it all comfortable.
The pool area is particularly lovely and was a delight to return to after touring every day. The pool water was the perfect temperature: cool enough to be refreshing but not uncomfortably chilly. One half of the grassy area surrounding the pool is shaded while the other half is sunny, allowing our group to chose the spot of their liking.
The covered outdoor dining space was so inviting we ended up eating our meals at home every night. The large table had no trouble accommodated our group of 11.
The only thing I would change is that the mattresses are very firm and all the beds use single-size mattresses. (In some rooms the mattresses are attached to act as a one two-person bed but with a seam in the middle.) Some people might prefer the extra firm mattresses since that's matter of taste.
Our group of family members ranged from age 17 to 76-three generations. For our first night we had 4 extra and the lovely owners provided extra cots for us to include our other traveling family. The villa is beautiful, the beds comfortable, the scenery very peaceful and pretty. We had a cooking lesson in our own house and the villa accommodated our experience. All prearrangement were properly handled. We rented a large Van at the airport and were able to use it to drive 9 peopleto Lucca and back and forth to Montelupo for dinners and to the train station for our trips into Florence. We did a big tour of Siena and other towns in 2 vans with drivers/guides. We had a wonderful experience.

Nice central location. Facilities were very good. Had small issue checking in, but not a big problem. Owner was very responsive to questions. Our family of 11 had a wonderful time.
We had the most wonderful stay at Casa Montecuccoli. Brilliant location, brilliant property and charming host. We were 2 families travelling together (4 adults & 6 kids) yet the house never felt crowded. We would highly recommend Casa Montecuccoli.
