Overview

Empolise Villa Rental Photos and Description

Ground floor 3 bedroom villa with private large pool & garden close to town

Villa Il Guscio is a sumptuous villa on ground floor with an extensive landscaped garden - it would be difficult to find such comfort and beautifully tended grounds in a five - star hotel. Set in undulating acres of olive groves and vineyards, the villa has an irresistible combination of contemporary comfort and traditional character.Ttraditional cotto floors, heavy wooden beams, and a large stone fireplace (ornamental only). The large living/dining room has French windows that open onto a splendid covered loggia. The fully-equipped kitchen (4 ring burner, oven , fridge and freezer, dishwasher, oven for pizza) opens into the living room and into a large terrace with its impressive iron gazebo is the perfect spot for memorable al fresco meals. Three double bedrooms and three bathrooms, one bedroom with en suite bathroom with hydromassage tub and a separate shower room. The villa's swimming pool (19 x 9 metres depth 1m - 2.7m) has an adjacent children's pool.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

Brilliant Yet Again

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time our family have stayed in this villa and yet again it was brilliant. The owner has added a further bedroom & ensuite, which together with new, fixed 'gazebo's just outside the kitchen and by the pool make this an even better villa than before. The owner and Adriano (the handyman) were very welcoming again.

We found more excellent restaurants in the local area, and will likely stay in the villa again in a few years time.

Cristiano from the booking agent was also extremely helpful, especially when we received a parking ticket in Lucca on the last day!

I can't understand why there aren't more reviews regarding this property!!

This villa had the best pool & grounds

  • 5 of 5

“This villa had the best pool & grounds that we've ever stayed in. The garden (~120mx~40m) is mostly laid to lawn, so the boys could play endless football, frisbee, etc. The pool (19mx12m) was massive so all four of us could have our very own Lilo Olympics competition. Given the pool and gardens are so large, it is surprising the villa isn't big enough for 2-3 families, but for 4 people it is very good, with clean, large rooms with plenty of outdoors seating in shade. The pool was cleaned every night (we think) and the villa every week. Adriano (the handy man) was fantastic and saved us a fortune when we damaged a hub cap from the hire car. The owner doesn't speak a word of English, but her maid does and there were no language problems as a result. Empoli is 5min drive away, where there is a huge Coop selling everything you could possibly want. Restaurants in San Miniato & Empoli were very good, but you would need a car for this villa as there is little to do nearby.

Overall, you are going to have a great holiday if you book this villa!”

Cheers,

Adrian

The villa is located in an excellent position to explore the main sights in Tuscany also by train or simply relax in an extremely peaceful location. Empoli is the nearest town with many shops and restaurants and only 5minutes drive away. Here there are also trains departing regularly to Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the beaches (journey about 1hr) or Siena and many other destinations. Active guests will be spoilt for choice as the amount of interesting places to visit is innumerable, ranging from characteristic villages like Vinci (the birthplace of Leonardo) only 15mns drive to the beaches of Versilia (about 50mns drive).
