About The Experience

Experience the true character of Italy with this comfortable villa rental in Tuscany, suitable for family and friends who love their own privacy. Each bedroom of this stylishly furnished villa has its own private bathroom---an unusual feature in most Tuscan homes. With a heated swimming pool (extra cost for heating), sun terrace, spa and barbecue area, it will be hard to tear yourself away from your Tuscany accommodation. However, reserve a few days to explore the colorful countryside, local hilltop villages, and take day trips into such cites of Pisa, San Gimignano and Volterra. Your holiday villa in Tuscany is the perfect beginning to an epic Italian adventure!

Location Description

This villa is situated near several hilltop villages in the Tuscan countryside near Forcoli. Forcoli is a very quaint Tuscan village with a few cafés and local shops. For a larger town, Pontedera offers a train station, supermarkets, shops, gas stations, pharmacies, a hospital, post offices, restaurants, cafés, and movie theatres. Close to this Tuscan villa are several cities ideal for daytrips; Pisa, Lucca, Florence (convenient by train from Pontedera), San Gimignano and Volterra. The city of Pisa, famous for its tower, is a convenient city to travel from with an intercity bus service, three train stations and an airport. Many important cities are reachable from Pisa’s train station including: Rome, Genoa, Turin, Naples, Livorno, Grosseto, Lucca, Pisatoia and Florence. Nearby Volterra is also a regional gem, where you can truly capture that "hilltown experience" in full. From the characteristic main piazza to the Roman ruins, Volterra has something from every century all the way back to Etruscan times. Wander along the Etruscan walls, dating from the 4th century BC, or purchase your own alabaster memento in a nearby shop. Visit museums, the exterior of a 15th century fortress, or lounge in the Piazza dei Priori, one of the best town squares in the region-- and the site of many historic and often bloody events. Ideal for a daytrip, Lucca is a place worth enjoying simply for its medieval charm. There are also a number of interesting sights to visit, as well as a great antique market held on the third Sunday of each month. The Duomo di San Martino and the Church of San Michele in Foro are both gorgeous examples of period architecture, while the Casa di Puccini, where the composer was born, has been transformed into a small museum in his honor. You can also climb the 130 foot Torre Guinigi.

Nearby Attractions: Forcoli (cafes, shops), Pontedera (supermarkets, shops, gas stations, pharmacies, a hospital, post offices, restaurants, cafes, movie theatres), Pisa (leaning tower, bus, train, airport), San Gimignano (towers, boutiques, restaurants, gelato, museum, horseback riding, wine tasting), Volterra (Roman ruins, Etruscan walls, shops, museums, 15th century fortress, Piazza dei Priori), Lucca ( antique market, Duomo di San Martino, Church of San Michele in Foro, Casa di Puccini, Torre Guinigi).

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The property was accurately represented on the RentVillas site. Picture were current. Our check in was a breeze with no surprises. Our property manager was so pleasant and efficient and very helpful. The villa is spacious and great for 6 adults. Supplies were adequate, linens good. The pool area is lovely and the gardens and view are beautiful. The location is good for traveling to nearby villages. Our overall experience was great.
Enjoyed Most:
The quiet surroundings and the location.
Enjoyed Least:
The road to the villa is quite rutted.
Surrounding Area:
The church service in Pistoia, all the food in the local restaurants, the breathtaking drives on the narrow winding roads and the lovely locals.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Forcoli. It is quite a walk, but could be done.
Tips or Restaurants:
Definitely book Chef Mattisse. He is fabulous. Bring your own shampoo. Bring your electrical adapters and games you like to play.
Directions:
No changes. Directions were accurate, but we did use GPS.
Check In Out:
Elizabeth was great. The gate was open and the villa unlocked and there was wine in the kitchen. We made ourselves at home and she arrived shortly.

Ella, June

Overall:
A great property. All the furniture was in great shape and the place is well-maintained.
Enjoyed Most:
How the property was kept in such good shape. The pictures on RentVillas are true to how it looked when we got there. Loved the remoteness.
Surrounding Area:
Yes the little town of Forcoli was nice. It had a great food store called Simply, an ATM, and a gelateria. What else do you need.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Yes and no. It would have taken maybe 15 minutes or so to walk, if you like walking.
Tips or Restaurants:
We had Chef Mattisse come to the villa three times and loved it each time. So I think that you should try to get him at least once while you are there.
Directions:
Used the GPS which I believe is a neccesity. The directions where great. We found the place right away.
Check In Out:
The process was a great experience. Elizabeth was fantastic. We bent her ear for suggestions and all were great. She responded to all our requests right away.
