About Giorgio Montini

I was born in Florence 56 years ago, but I grew up in Bibbiena, the small but historical town at 5 km. from the Villa,

My family and I ( my wife, my son 18 y.o.) live usually in Florence, in the center and part of the summer at the Villa in an independent part ( but safeguarding the guests's privacy).

Giorgio Montini purchased this villa in 1880

Why Giorgio Montini chose Bibbiena

I decided to restore this family property and use it in part for me and specially for international guests who are looking for relaxing holiday or/and who would like to visit this part of Tuscany and Umbria.

What makes this villa unique

Spend a few days at Villa Catarsena, especially with the good weather is very pleasant and relaxing.

The presence of the heated pool allows you to enjoy the pool also from mid-spring (mid-April, normally) in early Autumn, typically until mid-October.

Stunning Tuscan villa with fabulous swimming pool and wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 15 (10 adults, 5 childten) had an amazing, relaxing holiday in this stunning villa. A warm welcome, followed by careful attention throughout our 2 week stay by our hosts Giorgio and Tanya Montini, was exceptional. There was fruit, honey, olive oil (from the farm) and a rice salad waiting for us, and during our stay we had a memorable pizza-making evening using the pizza oven, helped by Giorgio. The large pool was well maintained and we spent many happy hours in it. The villa was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for us all. We appreciated having a good wifi connection and plenty of shaded outdoor areas. Thank you Giorgio and Tanya for you kindness and generosity. LorraineB

Beautiful Villa Catarsena

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an enjoyable 2 weeks at Villa catarsena. Giorgio and his wife Tanya were very helpful and informative. Tanya made a lovely tuscan dinner for my family and friends. The villa is clean and the kitchen airy and big. There are lots of places to see and nice cosy restaurants around the area.

We would recommend Villa catarsena to our friends from singapore!

Great place for a bigger group

  • 5 of 5

The place is great with a beautiful setting and view over the valley of the Arno.

It is especially well equipped for larger parties (we were 10 + 5 children). The furniture, bathroom and kitchen equipment was of very high standard. The owners have been very nice and helpful.
