Rustic charm with modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is recently remodeled inside. While the decorating and appliances are modern, the original charm of this stone house has not be compromised. It comfortably sleeps 4 in its 2 bedrooms each with a double bed, and the 2 bathrooms are both very nice. The kitchen is modern, and good for cooking.

The swimming pool, cabana and other patio areas provide many options for outdoor living. The surrounding garden and lawn are well kept, and include views of the surrounding hills and stone Hilltowns.

The Ristorante Pizzeria La Pieve is a short drive away and we ate there 3 times. Don't miss it! We loved the Tuscan Soup. Also, we visited 3 of the small Hilltowns nearby. Park in the lower parking lots and walk in following the narrow driving lanes, which are somewhat public. Respect the privacy of the locals as you walk past their doorways and windows, and avoid venturing into the more private areas as you walk.

This property is somewhat remote, being a 20 minute drive from Pescia, ending with narrow, winding paved roads and then a gravel driveway. If you like being out in the country, you will love it.

  • 5 of 5

Very modern house with a lot of luxury (rain shower!). We enjoyed every minute of our stay, beautiful surroundings with views on the small villages in the mountains. Our kids loved the swimming pool, maybe a new grass carpet next to it would be useful, but that's just a little detail. Nice outdoor space next to the house. Valter and Antonella are two fantastic and generous people who made us feel very welcome. We will come back for sure! Fino alla prossima volta!

Tuscan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Rustico Il Ponte was a fantastic find and Valter and Antonella were very gracious and thoughtful hosts. This is our fourth Italian villa rental booked through VRBO over the past several years and by far the most relaxing and well equipped – we would highly recommend this location. The villa is very well decorated and appointed from the bathrooms to living space to kitchen. The view from the outdoor patio and the pool of the surrounding hill towns was incredible. This is truly a serene get away location, but within 30 minutes of several wineries. In the quiet of the day we could only hear the birds, the rushing stream and the muted bells from the surrounding hill towns – perfect!

Our Spring Visit

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Ponte. The home has been beautifully redone and is so comfortable. We had some showers while we were here and it was just fine to spend the day at this country house and not go anywhere. On sunny days we drove to quite a few towns including Lucca and Siena and Greve. Then we relaxed on the lounge chairs and ate on the outside patio when we returned. We could live in this wonderful house.

Quiet, Secluded, Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is the ultimate place to get away from it all. Fantastic for a family. Totally as advertised except that most of Italy really doesn't have good walking trails anywhere except Lucca. If you want to walk, go to Lucca and walk around the wall. Otherwise, you are mostly walking on roads. Keep in mind that units almost never come with paper towels or kleenex in Italy; however, they almost always have olive oil. If you want quiet (birds and a creek were all we ever heard), then this is the place. There is no action. There is no nightlife, just serenity. A car is an absolute must.

  • 5 of 5

"We were a family for the first time in Tuscany. And the first house where we visited was this beautiful house. It is located on a hill in a beautiful forest. First, we were shocked, it's lavender bushes that surrounded the area. The smell of lavender has made an indelible impression on us for life. The terrace offers stunning views of the hills and the next village. A wonderful atmosphere in the house, the furniture chosen with taste. Very polite hosts. They gave us a free dinner at a restaurant in the village of nearby, in a very picturesque place. This home will be remembered for a lifetime."
