Castel del Bosco House Rental Photos and Description

Two Connected Houses, Can Accommodate Over 20. 10 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms

We own 2 adjoined house which we rent out individually as well as together for really large parties. This listing is for both houses.

About the property: The property consists of 2 adjoined houses with 10 total bedrooms that can easily sleep up to 21 people. Unlike many old Italian homes which can be small and cramped, our newly built houses were designed with comfort in mind. Piano Giorno (the 'day' floor), is one great room consisting of the living area, dining room and kitchen. The extra large French doors reveal beautiful views and allow you to enjoy the Tuscan country side without leaving the house. It makes the perfect setting to gather, cook, dine, and talk all while enjoying the beauty of Tuscany.

The location of the houses provides a great staging point to see the best of what Tuscany has to offer. The village is located centrally to some of the best sites in Tuscany. Florence (34 miles), Pisa (19 miles), Lucca (20 miles), San Gimignano (31 miles), Volterra (28 miles), the beach at Viareggio (39 miles) and the Chianti wine region (48 miles) all can be reached in under an hour by car.

Getting to the Property: We recommend that people rent a car while staying with us to see the most of Tuscany. Our place is easily accessible from both the Pisa (30 mins) and Florence (45 mins) airport. However you can also make it work with no car. You can arrive at the nearby train station of San Romano or Pontedera and take a taxi or bus 10 mins to our place.

Our homes reside in the historic Tuscan village of Castel Del Bosco a part of Montopoli in Val d'Arno in the Province of Pisa. Within walking distance there is an amazing local pizza parlor as well as a small convenience store for the bare necessities and a bus stop. In the neighboring town, you can take a short drive or bus ride, to a full supermarket (10 mins) and bank (5 mins). There is also a major train stop within a 15 min drive in the neighboring town of Pontedera. From this station you have direct access to Florence and Pisa central stations, no switching of trains needed.

In addition to the comfortable interior, the houses have several balconies and patios area for enjoyment of the outdoors. They are decorated in traditional Tuscan style but with all of the modern amenities.

The houses are newly built attached homes, completed in 2008. The house is part of a new housing development in the village. There are some houses in the development the are not yet complete however construction is currently on hold. The houses sit on the northern edge of the development on a hill with an unobstructed view of farmland in the Arno river valley.

About Max & John

These properties are owned by two cousins Max and John. We are happy to answer any questions you have. We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our home!

Max & John purchased this house in 2007

Why Max & John chose Montopoli Val d'Arno

Castel Del Bosco is the village in which my father (Fabrizio) grew up. I, along with my cousin, decided to purchase the houses here to keep a connection to Italy. This houses were constructed in 2007 and we have been the only owners. We use the houses primarily for getting together with our families and friends. We also rent the places sparingly to guests throughout the year. We built these houses because we wanted a place that we could comfortably allow for large group gatherings. Most traditional Italian homes have small, narrow rooms which can feel claustrophobic when more than a few people are inside. Our homes have a wide open floor plan and can easily accommodate groups over 20. The houses' close proximity to the highway, train station, and to the Pisa airport was also another major factor for choosing this particular area. One can easily get to and from the houses as they travel around the countryside and beyond.

What makes this house unique

Our homes reside in the historic Tuscan village of Castel Del Bosco a part of Montopoli in Val d'Arno in the Province of Pisa. Within walking distance there is an amazing local pizza parlor as well as a small convenience store for the bare necessities and a bus stop. In the neighboring town, you can take a short drive or bus ride, to a full supermarket (10 mins) and bank (5 mins). There is also a major train stop within a 15 min drive in the neighboring town of Pontedera.

Outstanding home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had the opportunity to stay at Max and John's home just recently. We were amazed by everything the home had to offer. It was incredibly spacious, the rooms were all huge and comfortable and the views from just about anywhere were truly phenomenal. The location was very central and easy to reach by car. The little pizza place in town was fantastic! It really was an amazing place and I already look forward to a return visit...though next time, I'd love to bring both of our families!

A Tuscan Dream!!

  • 5 of 5

There are really no words to describe just how amazing this property is. From the second we walked through the door, we were completely blown away! The views are breathtaking, the home is warm and extremely comfortable, and the bedrooms, bathrooms & amenities are fantastic. Quite simply, the house is just flawless. I would very highly recommend renting this home for a miraculous Tuscan getaway that you will never forget!!
