Monsummano Terme Villa Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 18, Min Beds: 13, Double Beds: 6, Single Beds: 1, Baths: 7, Reference: 12450

You are sitting with a book in the garden of your Tuscany villa rental, one bare foot dangling over the side of the lounge chair, brushing the soft green grass. You're reading intently, but after a few minutes a warm breeze tousles your hair and you glance up to breathe in the faintly mysterious aroma of ripening olives. Across the garden the homey stone façade of your Tuscany accommodation near Florence beckons you to walk barefoot across the yard to the door, where you'll step inside and slide your feet across cool terracotta tiles. But before you can get up, you hear a splash-- glancing down the hill you see that your companions are beckoning you from the pool, perfectly positioned for a magnificent countryside view. When, you ask yourself as you join them, are we ever going to go exploring? All this can become reality when you rent one of our Tuscany villas. And don't worry about grocery shopping the moment you arrive... this villa comes stocked with the necessities, so all you have to do is arrive and relax!

(7 hectares) This independent villa, built in the second half of the 18th century, is the center of a property of over 7 hectares of woods and olive groves on the westernmost slopes of Mount Albano, about 250 meters above sea level. The grounds surrounding this villa feature a private swimming pool (12m x 6m, 1.35m deep), open mid April to mid October, situated on a natural terrace a few meters below the villa with a wide view of the valley below. It is an overflow Infinity pool equipped with hydro-massage, and nearby there is a changing room with shower and WC. The pool has lighting for nighttime swimming. The villa also has its own 3,000 m2 garden, enclosed within a high laurel hedge and dotted here and there by terracotta vases and orci (oil jars). The lawn includes a small group of shade tress, a barbeque area, and a dining area under a wisteria-covered gazebo. On the western side of the garden, there is a parking area of five cars. The road to the villa is paved and quiet. The owners have another villa on the estate, and 100 meters away from the rental villa there is another small house with its own garden and swimming pool. Outdoor spaces, however, are private.

(500 m2/5,382 ft2) This villa was originally composed of two farmhouses. The two houses have been joined together, but maintain a level of independence agreeable for families traveling together. There are four steps up from one side of the house to the other. The owners have carried out rigorous and accurate renovations using only materials from the surrounding area, as well as period pieces. All windows have screens and the beds are patented Waterlily mattresses. Each room has its own heating and air conditioning units.

Ground Floor: This level of the house opens into a living room with an antique decorative fireplace, couches, and a card table with four chairs. The real focal point of the ground floor, however, is a large dining room with open-beam ceilings, an ornate rug, and a long wooden table with seating for 14. Also on the ground floor there is a second dining room for six, a lounge with two sofas, one of which is a queen sofa bed and a double-faced fireplace communicating with the main dining room, a TV room with a queen sofa-bed (160 cm), and a billiard room with two armchairs and a table. The main kitchen is large and fully equipped with oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and a table for eight. The secondary kitchen (on the other side of the house) is smaller but also well-equipped with dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, and toaster. There are also two downstairs bathrooms, each with a sink, toilet, and Jacuzzi shower. A small laundry room has a washing machine and dryer.

Intermediate Floor: Nine steps lead up from the large dining room to a double bedroom with two single beds and nice views. Its bathroom is located downstairs.

First Floor: Two staircases (one on either side of the house) lead up to the first floor, where there are 6 bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is decorated in yellow and has a 180 cm king-size bed and a walk-in wardrobe. It also has an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and bathtub with hydro-massage and handheld showerhead. Bedrooms 2 (green) and 3 (pink) each have a king-size bed (180 cm), wardrobe, and ensuite bathroom with sink, toilet and Jacuzzi shower. Bedroom 4 has a king-size (180 cm) bed, a wardrobe, and an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and Jacuzzi shower. An open loft with a wrought-iron railing, where there is a single bed, can be reached via a spiral staircase. Bedroom 5 contains 3 single beds (2 may be put together upon request) and a wardrobe. Bedroom 6 has one single bed and a built-in wardrobe. Rooms 5 and 6 share a bathroom with a sink, toilet, and Jacuzzi bathtub with handheld showerhead.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We had a great time at Villa Alessandro. The villa worked very well for our group of 16 and we had so many enjoyable times together at the pool, eating together both inside and outside as well as enjoying the surroundings. Really loved this 280-year old place which has a lot of character and Italian soul.

Enjoyed Most:

The garden and pool were awesome.

Enjoyed Least:

We had some difficulties with the outlets where standard 220V european plugs and converters didn't fit the special Italian variant.

Surrounding Area:

We loved hiking to the top of the hill and had a magical walk back from the restaurant at night seeing lots of fireflies... Unforgettable.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Nearest town was Monsummano Terme. We went there almost every day and enjoyed the Monday morning market, Conan supermarket and some great Italian gelato.

Tips or Restaurants:

Italian outlet converters are recommended for plugging in phone chargers, etc. The standard European converters didn't work in many of the 3 prong outlets.

Directions:

It is a quite narrow and windy road to the villa but we found it easy using Google Maps. Hard to find if you don't have the exact address.

Check In Out:

Check in and out was easy.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Very beautiful, peaceful, and quiet.

Enjoyed Most:

The large spaces, lovely settings to enjoy the outside, and the views. Nice furnishings, tasteful decor.

Enjoyed Least:

1) The access road (very narrow and very windy);

2) We were told the kitchen fireplace was possible but required specific preparation/permission; 3) Inoperative towel heater racks.

Surrounding Area:

The beautiful countryside, the accessible and lovely small towns.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Monsummano Terme and Montecatini Terme. A short drive away.

Tips or Restaurants:

Make sure you understand the garbage instructions (what to recycle, when and where to place all of it). We enjoyed the nearest hilltop restaurant for its views.

Directions:

Directions were OK; we did use GPS.

Check In Out:

It would be helpful to have a booklet of written instructions regarding keys, lights, circuit breakers, and garbage.
