Whether you’re relaxing with a book and a glass of wine in the lovely garden, exploring the olive groves, or taking a dip in the private pool, this villa will offer you and your guests a multitude of choices for enjoying your stay in Tuscany. Set on top of a hill overlooking the countryside, you can gaze out on the beautiful Tuscan landscape from this villa’s covered portico and patio. It won’t be long, however, until the comfortable, tasteful interiors beckon you back inside to enjoy a fire under the wood beamed ceilings while dinner cooks in the oven. This classic villa is great for a family or a group of friends.

This property is surrounded by 18 acres of olive groves (which give the villa its own oil).

Closer to the kitchen is a barbeque area and a furnished veranda for al fresco dining. A paved road leads to the villa from the main road, and there is private parking for up to 5 cars on the grounds. The owners have another villa on the estate, listed on this site as Villa Alessandro, which is located in front of this villa; however, since the orientation of each villa is different, they are completely private from the other.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We had an absolutely fabulous time and the villa was more spectacular then we could have ever imagined.

Enjoyed Most:

The villa inside and out were equally wonderful, it didn't matter what direction you looked you had amazing views. The inside was so very beautiful and very charming.

Enjoyed Least:

Driving to the Villa; we had a van and going up and down the hill was quite stressful.

Surrounding Area:

The proximity to the train station made visiting other areas very convenient.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Monsummano Terme, a bit of a hike but, one of the couples walked there and took a taxi back up to villa.

Tips or Restaurants:

The name of the restaurant in Montecatini Alto was recommended by owners (the name ! don't recall) but we took the funicular to get to it.

Directions:

Directions were fine; tried to use a GPS, not always helpful due to the fact we kept losing signal.

Check In Out:

It went very smoothly once we got to the villa; we had a bit of trouble with our rental van breaking down. The owners were so patient with us since we got there a little late.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Overall it was relaxing and certainly lived up to expectations.

Enjoyed Most:

Privacy and relaxing atmosphere and also the overall charm of the exquisitely restored building.

Enjoyed Least:

Unfortunately we had problems with the beautiful pool as the amount of chlorine caused excessive stinging of the eyes. There were a couple of broken pool chairs, as well. We mentioned both issues to the owner. He gave us a small discount on the electricity bill since we were unable to use the pool. Editor's Note: The owner confirmed that the automatic chlorinator malfunctioned, and it has been replaced. For the 2014 season, all outside furniture and BBQ will be replaced.

Surrounding Area:

The views, privacy and relaxing atmosphere, great walks.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Not within walking distance so; we had to drive in.

Wonderfully peaceful stay with the best views and pool in Tuscany!...

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Wonderfully peaceful stay with the best views and pool in Tuscany!

Enjoyed Most:

This is a newly-constructed villa (2 years old) with old-world materials so that it looks hundreds of years old. Beautiful outdoor spaces; pool, pool house with restroom and showers; back patio; outdoor dining off kitchen; villa is surrounded by olive groves; beautifully decorated villa with antiques and art; hugw new refrigerator; nice washing machine; air conditioning works great.

Enjoyed Least:

Not much counter space on the main-floor bathroom and kitchen.

This is easily remedied No hand soap, and not many garbage bags - or directions on how to take it out to the public garbage. A few more outdoor garbage cans would help.

Surrounding Area:

The beautiful, picturesque landscape.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Monsumanno Terme is closest, but not within walking distance unless you like a serious workout coming back up!

Tips or Restaurants:

La Foresteria Restaurant was fantastic - just up the hill in Monsammano Alto (the only thing up there besides a church and place for rent). The restaurant has beautiful views of the towns below and the owners' service is fantastic.

Check In Out:

Just ensure that you know that you have to pay extra for additional air conditioning usage. I think we paid an additional 350 euros for the week.

Map

This vacation villa is located at the top of a hill, and enjoys a fantastic location in the heart of Tuscany, within an hours' driving distance of all the main Tuscan art cities: Florence, Pistoia, Lucca, Pisa, and Versilia (Siena is 1.5 hours). The rental villa is only 10 minutes away from the Firenze/Mare motorway, making access to major routes easy. In the immediate area you can find a number of different leisurely activities, such as a beauty spa in Monsumano, three 18-hole golf courses, horseback riding, bowling, cooking and painting classes, and tours with cultural, artistic, gastronomic, and wine themes. The villa itself is located in an area of characteristic, natural Tuscan countryside. Within a range of fifteen or twenty minutes, one can reach the Giusti Grottoes with their hot thermal baths, the Monsummano caves, the Pistoia hills and mountains (with winter skiing), the Svizzera Pesciatina (ten medieval villages), innumerable Romantic churches, and the Fucecchio swamplands. You can find public transport (buses and taxis) down in Monsummano and the nearest train station is in Montecatini.
