Nous étions deux familles à occuper cette belle maison qui offre tous les équipements.
La vue est splendide et la piscine privative des plus agréable surtout en période de canicule comme nous l'avons vécue.
Les propriétaires répondent toujours présent tout en étant des plus discrets.
Nous avons adoré y séjourner et visiter la région qui, bien qu'un peu éloignée de Florence et Pise, offre des sites remarquables.
Ca reste pour nous tous l'une des meilleures vacances que nous ayons vécu.
Grazie di tutto. Erano due settimane fantastiche !
Thank you for your review. We're very pleased to hear that you had a fantastic week and enjoyed the private pool, the views and the facilities. We would be delighted to welcome you again! Lorraine at Tuscan-retreats
Best summer vacation ever!
This was far the best summer holiday ever and mostly thanks to this beautiful house and the property it's on! The yard , the view, nature, the house, everything is just breathtaking!! We were there for a week 4 adults and 5 children and everyone found something to do there whether to swim, walk, paint or play hide and seek! Would highly recommend it!!!
Thank you for your review Dana. We are glad you would highly recommend this place. Monia would love to welcome you all again.

amazing experience at villa and surrounding area
Photos of villa certainly don't do the place justice.. fantastic villa with lovely big bedrooms and onsuites. The outside of villa is certainly the highlight with its secure fence and gate (I have 2 little ones..) large pool, lots of lawn and even a woodland area where my eldest loved to play. The views are beautiful (u have to see it forself to appreciate it) spent most evenings in BBQ area which was great.
We had a party of 5 adults and 2 little kids and we certainly wernt tripping over each other. Lovely big spaces to get some quiet time if u wished.
You certainly didn't feel like u were staying next to the owners (it's a semi detached) which I was initially concerned about. We had lots of fun and made lots of noise (the kids..).
Only thing with area as up in Mountains is restaurants don't start serving till 7pm which was too late for my little ones but that was the only issue I found if you can even call it an 'issue'.
Brilliant supermarket in nearby town which has everything u need or for something in walking distance there is a bakery and village shop/bar. Good view from bar balcony too!!!
Lots of good walking nearby with good trails to follow and breathtaking views to reward yourself with (minus the kids).
Overall I would highly recommend this villa if you like to get away from the 'tourists' and see the real Italy. You don't need to go far as the villa has everything you need. We were lucky to have amazing weather which obviously helps so many days spent in the pool.
Would love to go back and explore more walking routes.
Thank you again for a great holiday
Thank you for your comprehensive review. Glad you had a great time and enjoyed the wonderful outdoor space this property has to offer , and that you loved this area too which as you say is non toursity, and authentic. We hope to hear from you for another stay. Lorraine at tuscan-retreats
Holidays for the family
Great place in the middle of nature.
We had a very pleasant stay in a property very well maintained, completed for all the family with or without children
A special distinction is to be attributed to Monia and Gilberto for their kindness and their availability.
Thank you for your review which has been passed onto the owners. We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Lovely and quiet
We had a lovely fortnight in Molazana. This house is lovely and well equipped. The weather wasn't brilliant and we had a few rainy days but the rest of our holiday was fine. It was lovely to be able to walk and buy bread from the local bakery. A tip though - get there early as the bread can sell out. The house was clean and well maintained. Our only slight disappointment was when it was rainy in the evening there wasn't really much room inside to sit but you'd hope the weather would be lovely. I would recommend this house to everyone and the pool was great and we had many hours swimming. As we've visited this area many times we went to our favourite places including Barga and Sienna. I would also recommend the many food festivals that take place during the summer - including a Mexican festival in Molzana with live music.
Amazing location and views.
The property itself was pretty basic, however the outdoor living space more than made up for it. The weather was beautiful for the most part and we enjoyed living al fresco. The views were absolutely stunning and the owners, Gilberto and his lovely wife were most accommodating and very friendly. If you are looking to get away from it all and enjoy outdoor living then I would highly recommend Il Colletto.
The property is situated in a very tiny hamlet just a 10 minute walk or so from the village of Molazzana, which is a pretty mediaeval village, with a bar and basic shop and the most stunning views over the countryside.
For days out, Lucca is a 50 minute drive away, the mediaeval town of Barga 15 minutes, the market town of Castelnuovo 15 minutes, Pisa 1 hr 10 mins, Florence 1 hr 45 mins, and the Wind Caves 25 mins….
There are of course countless hilltop villages to explore….
