Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.0 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

Though its tucked into the hills near Stiava, villa Al Valentino is just a short drive from the famed resorts of the Versilia coast and the cities of Lucca and Pisa. The cheery restored farmhouse is a treasure trove of finds from all over the world, but still offers plenty of traditional Tuscan charm, from the views to the architecture.

The villa offers ample opportunity to relax, indoors and out. Prepare dinner on the outdoor barbecue, eat at the table on the covered veranda, then adjourn to the daybeds for a glass of wine. Take a swim in the pool or soak away the stress in the steam bath or six-person jetted tub. The houses common areas have Wi-Fi access, and theres also satellite TV and a printer.

Beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and shuttered windows provide a traditional envelope for a unique collection of furnishings, from antique sideboards to exotic carved daybeds. In the living room, yellow and gingham sofas are clustered around a cozy fireplace, while matching yellow walls feel warm and welcoming. The kitchen is outfitted with a pretty marble backsplash, plus amenities like an immersion blender and dishwasher.

Air conditioning is available in each of the villas five bedrooms. There are two bedrooms with double beds, en-suite bathrooms, safes and garden access. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a safe, and the fourth, a double bed and mini bar; these two bedrooms share a bathroom. The master suite has a queen bed, en-suite bathroom, safe, mini bar and walk-in closet. For larger groups, an additional French bed is available upon request.

From Al Valentino, its just 1 mile to the nearest grocery store, and 3 miles to the nearest town. If youd like to take a day trip, the closest highway access is just over 3 miles away and the renowned Versilia beaches are 5 miles away. Further afield, Lucca is 15 miles away, Pisa is 19 miles away and Florence is about 60 miles away.

Additional Information

Swimming Pool - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.

Heating - Heating is available at an additional charge. Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity - Please note that most of the properties that we offer are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

Internet Connection - Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.

Low Slung Cars - Vans - Minibuses - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.

Advertised rates may vary according to the season and duration of stay

A piece of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week at Al Valentino! The villa had everything we could want and gave our familyan idyllic Tuscan experience. Tranquil setting, ample space and despitebeing a bit off the beaten track, it was close to all major attractions.
