Stylish Art Nouveau Villa with Heated Pool and Sculptures Garden, in the untouched environment of the Apennines, 40 min. from Florence - Villa + dépendance

San Marcello Pistoiese, Pistoia, Italy
  • Villa3552 sq. ft.
  • Bedrooms8
  • Sleeps18

6 double bedrooms with bathroom in the villa plus 2 double bedrooms in the annex

The house is an early twentieth century Art Nouveau building recently restored, according to its original style, with care and attention for every detail. It used to belong to Mr. Morelli Gualtierotti, an attorney and influent politician, and it is situated in a very quiet environment, surrounded by a large park with ancient trees.

The façade’s Art Nouveau style was very trendy at the time but quite unusual in a rural area such as the Pistoia Apennines.

Behind the Palazzo, the beautiful private grounds lead to the swimming pool area, enriched with contemporary Carrara marble sculptures. This unique location provides endless outdoor opportunities such as walking excursions, mountain bike and horse riding.

At the villa’s ground floor guests will find a modern kitchen and a spacious bright living room with a large glass window over the natural setting. At the upper floors there are six bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. All the different rooms are furnished with an astonishing combination of original ancient and contemporary design elements. From the first floor, guests will also have access to the rear terrace with hydromassage, sitting area and table tennis. The swimming pool area is also equipped with outdoor furniture (tables, chairs, beach beds and sun umbrella). A panoramic dining area provided of barbecue overlooks the swimming pool.

In addition to the Villa, for larger groups, a cosy apartment next to the swimming pool is available. It is composed of two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room with a kitchen.

About Mr. Davide Ferrari

I am the manager of “GMG Holidays”, a small family business operating with its self-catering properties near the town of Pistoia, a few dozen minutes away from other important art cities like Florence, Lucca and Pisa as well as from the beaches of Versilia. What we aim at offer you is the chance to spend a relaxing holiday in the nature of a green valley set between the town of Pistoia and the Tuscan Apennine Mountains. This is a well known and loved winter holiday destination, famous for the ski slopes of Abetone, but also an enchanting holiday spot between spring and autumn, thanks to its pretty paths and silent ancient forests. Our properties are charming historic buildings which have been recently renovated and fully equipped to meet the needs of increasingly demanding tourists. In fact, my father and I are both passionate travellers and this helps us to empathize with the potential demands of our guests. We are truly committed to your satisfaction and looking forward to welcoming you to one of our properties! We will do our best to make you feel at home!

Mr. Davide Ferrari purchased this Villa in 2008

                                                                    We were a group of 16 celebrating our 60th birthdays and this house was just perfect for a group that size! Each bedroom was beautiful so everyone was comfortable. The house is well equipped for cooking, relaxing, etc. and the bus stop is a 5 minute walk away down a lovely twisting, turning driveway through the woods. There is a delicious restaurant across from the bus stop that we took advantage of a few times. You can take the bus to any of the surrounding towns but if you take it to Pistoia, you can catch the train to almost anywhere! The pool house is a charming cottage complete with 2 bathrooms, a sauna and full kitchen! Every detail was carefully planned and we found ourselves delightfully surprised as we discovered each nuance that this property has to offer. It is great for hikers as well because there are many trails around the area. To end our stay there the owner arranged for us to have dinner prepared by 2 chefs who did an excellent job. Most of all, we'd like to thank our hosts, Nato and Davide, who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and assisted whenever we asked. They made us feel welcome and at home for which we were deeply grateful.

                                                                    Thank you so much for your detailed review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your group! My father and I are so happy you have such nice memories of your stay at the villa! We hope to see you again.

                                                                    Tuscany 2016! A dream realized.

                                                                    Pat A.

                                                                    We were a group of 14...cousins & spouses, friends and family.

                                                                    The villa was wonderful. We cooked and hiked and swam. The hot tube was a bonus. Each bedroom with its own bathroom worked perfectly for everyone.

                                                                    Davide and his father took care of us. The weather was perfect. The villa didn't include air conditioning which caught us off guard at first, but this location doesn't need it. Keeping the windows open at night made the villa comfortable for the entire day. One evening was so cool we even had a fire in the fireplace...in June!

                                                                    The road up to the villa was a bit of a challenge. It was dubbed 'bobble-head' road by one of our group because of the bumpy, uneven ride. You definitely need a car to reach the villa.

                                                                    The internet service was not available for the first few days but we had invested in a mobile hot spot as part of our rental car. It was indispensable. Highly recommend getting one.

                                                                    The kitchen was well prepared with pots, pans and dishes. We made good use of the clothes washer. We had air-dried clothing for the first time in many years.

                                                                    Our time at the villa was full of laughter, fun and lots of wine. We lived outside at the communal table and pool. It was an unforgettable time.

                                                                    The villa was a delightful home for a week. This was an amazing experience.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Thanks a lot for sharing your positive experience and for all the good remarks! We really like to know that our guests are satisfied with our villa. We also like to interact with them and knowing this is appreciated makes our job even nicer!

                                                                    Concerning the internet service, we were so unhappy not to be able to provide a reliable connection that we have recently changed our provider. The internet access has run continuously since then.

                                                                    Thank you very much! It was a pleasure meeting you!

                                                                    "We had a fantastic stay ...

                                                                    "We had a fantastic stay in this wonderfull villa."

                                                                    "At the beginning of June...

                                                                    angela k.

                                                                    "At the beginning of June 2011 we spent 5 fabulous days in Villa Morelli. It total we were 16 adults, so the villa was fully occupied. As it contains 5 double rooms and one twin room in villa and two double rooms in additional house, everybody had also space for privacy. Big living room made our evenings very enjoyable then the entire group get together and had a fabulous time for conversation. Extra points are going for WIFI connection. Its location is very perfect for short daily trips to neighbourhood and cities like Florence, Pisa, Lucca etc. The owners, Davide and Nedo are very helpful and friendly and they do everything to make your stay in villa pleasant and enjoyable. I definitely recommend this villa for a people who like to have privacy with high level accommodation on North Tuscany region"

                                                                    Super Ausstattung, perfekt in den Bergen gelegen, nette Vermieter

                                                                    Maike R.

                                                                    Wir waren Ende Juni vor Ort und trotz extremer Hitze in der Ebene hatten wir am Haus ca. 8 Grad weniger, so dass man tatsächlich keine Klimaanlage vermisst hat. Das Klima ist perfekt. Wir haben abends lange draußen gesessen und Glühwürmchen beobachtet. Morgens auch schon mal Nebel oder Regen.

                                                                    Die gesamte Ausstattung lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig. Alle Schlafzimmer sind sehr geräumig und genau wie die Bäder sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Einzig in der obersten Etage könnte die Schräge für große Menschen ein Problem darstellen. Der Pool ist toll und super sonnig. Wir waren mit 10 Erwachsenen und 4 Kindern dort, was problemlos funktionierte (wir hatten auch das kleine Gartenhaus dazu gemietet). Auf Wunsch war es auch möglich Kinderbett und Kinderstühle zusätzlich zu bekommen. Das Haus liegt am Hang und ist über einen recht steilen Schotterweg zu erreichen. Dadurch ist es schön abgelegen, allerdings sind Menschen, die nicht sicher laufen können, komplett aufs Auto angewiesen. Viele verschiedene Sitzmöglichkeiten draußen, so dass man viele Alternativen hat und sich auch mal aus dem Weg gehen kann. Die Ferraris sind super nette Vermieter, die auch im Notfall (Gasflasche war leer) super schnell vor Ort waren und geholfen haben.

                                                                    Prachtig huis op toplocatie

                                                                    Gerie W.

                                                                    Wij hebben met 14 personen een week in Villa Morelli gelogeerd. Prachtig huis, mooi ingericht en zeer compleet! Mooi privé zwembad. En ontzettend aardige eigenaars die alles doen om het verblijf zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken. Zeer attent! Huis was brandschoon. Locatie is geweldig, rustig en midden in het groen. Zou dit huis aan iedereen aanraden!

                                                                    Villa Morelli Gualtierotti is located 17 km North of Pistoia (20 minutes of mainly panoramic road from the highway exit) in a verdant valley, 40 minutes far from beautiful art cities like Florence and Lucca. Because of its position, at the beginning of the Pistoia's Apennines area, our villa may be an ideal base for tourists interested in visiting the famous art cities of Tuscany as well as for nature lovers, aiming to discover the Apennines' beautiful landscapes in all seasons. Located at the foot of the mountains, between Florence and Lucca, Pistoia has much to offer in terms of history, monuments, folk traditions, nature and gastronomic specialities. Although less visited than other cities in Tuscany, Pistoia presents a well-preserved medieval centre with the monumental Cathedral Square, one of the most beautiful in Italy. Near Pistoia there are several interesting destinations like the Leonardian Museum in the genius' birthplace Vinci, Montecatini and its thermal baths, the medieval villages of the Valdinievole, including Collodi, the town of Pinocchio. Distance from airports: Florence: 50km, i.e. 40 minutes drive. Pisa: 90km, about 1 hour drive. Bologna: 80km, about 1 hour and 15 minutes by car.
