Overview

About the property

cottage , absolutely quiet, typical Tuscan flair near the sea, 3 bedrooms, pool

This beautiful, typical Tuscan cottage has a stone facade and 2 separate apartments. It is quietly located in the middle of vineyards, fields and meadows near the river Cecina at about 2.5 km from the city of Montescudaios. A beautiful, large garden with garden furniture, a small pool (for the guests on the ground floor) and shady pine trees surround the house. Both apartments were completely renovated a few years ago. The entrances are located on different sides of the house and the garden is also separated, so that each family can have their own privacy. Each family has the option of eating outside under a covered, furnished patio with a grill. Due to the central heating, you can also enjoy and get to know Tuscany during the shoulder season. Ideal for befriended families. Parking space on the property. Dogs are also welcome. The pool is only for the guests of Pino 1

The history of Montescudaio: The name Montescudaio comes from the Latin word 'Mons Scutorum', which means 'mountain of shields' or 'mountain of squires' - this is due to the important military missions that occurred in the city until the end of the medieval ages. An urn from a funeral feast during the villanovian period and a spilled basin in which wine and water were mixed by the Greeks both come from early Montescudaio. In 1846, a strong earthquake destroyed the agglomeration of the old castle houses, including the abbey-church Santa Maria. With the help of the residents, the village had new life after just 10 years, thanks to the large support from the grand duke. Since 1861, Montescudaio has followed the development of the history of the Italian kingdom in the region. The city arms consists of a 5 edged crown on a shield with 3 mountains. The crown illustrates the county of Della Gheraldesca and the 3 mountains represent the 3 castles belonging to the family.

Montescudaio and wine: For ages, Montescudaio has been a synonym for wine, whose cultivation goes back to the Etruscan times. The region is the main representative of Montescudaio Doc and belongs to the founders of the national federation 'Strada del vino Costa degli Etruschie' (wine street), which, since 1976, contains the 7 regions (Montescudaio, Casale, MontecatiniVdC, Guradistallo, S. Luce, Castellina). The first condition of the DOC Montescudaio was a copy of Chianti-authenticity: for red wins, the authenticity was a strong taste of San Giovese combined with a scent of Trebbiano, Colorino and Canaiolo. The authenticity of the white wines was ensured by the combination of Trebbiano with Malvasia and Vermentino. In 1999, new conditions were dismissed following the success of the 'super-Tuscan'. The Montescudaio DOC wines are now such a diverse selection and the San Giovese finally gives room for innovative grape varieties like Cabernet, Merlot...

Events: A few dates are organized in Montescudaio, along with countless music events and cultural initiatives that enrich the event calendar every month. In May, the 'national holiday of the small communities' occurs; in June there is the 'Festival of the most beautiful places in Italy' along with festivals organized annually by the national association 'city of bread'. Music festivals and cinema performances play in July, while the national association 'Cittá del Vino'has the event 'Calici di Stelle' in August. Since 1967, there has been a wine festival during the 1st weekend of October and this festival attracts thousands of guests. You should not miss the 'Montescudaio Olea' during November - this is the event of the 'bread and oil from the oil mills'. In December, manger scenes are built in the most charming corners of the village.

Landhaus typisch Toscana

  • 4 of 5

Hinter Montescudaio gelegen, inmitten den toscanatypischen Bäumen, Feldern und der Natur, fanden wir unser einsames einfaches Landhäuschen mit Pool vor. Mit Blick auf das Dorf verbrachten wir, bei tollem Wetter, mit zwei Familien eine Woche der Abgeschiedenheit in der Toscana.

Einfach ausgestattet, mit gerade genügend Geschirr hatten wir sechs genügend Platz zum Schlafen und Urlauben. Das Bad als Minus könne einmal saniert werden, der Grill am Haus, die Waschmaschine und die Terrasse mit dem großen Tisch als Plus.

Unser Fazit: Ein bischen Modernität, Ausstattung und Sauberkeit täte dem Haus gut, aber mit dem vom Vermieter rein gehaltenem Pool, waren wir insgesamt zufrieden mit unserem Aufenthalt!

entspannter Familienurlaub

  • 4 of 5

In diesem Sommer haben wir zwei wunderschöne Wochen in Montescudaio verbracht. Bei dem gemieteten Objekt handelt es sich um ein rustikales toskanisches Landhaus in schöner Lage, umgeben von Weinhängen. Das Haus eignet sich hervorragend für Familien mit Kindern und ist sehr zu empfehlen, wenn man zusammen mit Freunden einen entspannten Urlaub verbringen möchte. Das Haus ist typisch toskanisch eingerichtet und bietet alles was man als Selbstversorger benötigt. Der Garten ist mit einem gepflegten Pool, Sonnenliegen, Tisch, Stühlen und Grill sehr gut ausgestattet und bietet auch sehr bewegungsfreudigen Kindern genügend Möglichkeiten sich auszutoben. Wir kommen auf alle Fälle wieder!

Erholsamer Urlaub in landschaftl. herrlicher Lage

  • 4 of 5

Sehr schön gelegenes Landhaus inmitten der toskanischen Weinberge. Wer Natur pur liebt und Ruhe sucht, ist hier richtig. Bis nach Cecina die Mare zum Strand ca. 15 Minuten. Küchenausstattung ist zur Selbstverpflegung gut ausgestattet. Für Familien mit Kindern und/oder Hund bestens geeignet.

Wir waren bereits 3 x dort. Der Vermieter und die Verwalterin sehr nett.

Montescudaio is a small village about 12 km from the sea - even in the past it was an important city due to its location. You can still enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view form the church square. On clear days, your view can reach the river Cecina, the blue Tyrrenian Sea with its islands Capraia, Gorgona and, of course, Elba. When you go for a walk from the church square through the narrow alleys under arches and gates as you look for typical wine cellars, you will already wish that you can come back for your next vacation. In the village center you can discover restaurants that will pamper all tastes with typical Tuscan delicacies. You can also enjoy one of the many Montescudaio-DOC wines with your meal. In the city center you will find two grocery stores, a pharmacy and a bank.
