Customer Reviews

Overall:
The house and grounds were magnificent. Beautiful furnishings and tastefully decorated.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and the privacy. A group of 18 people had rented the property next door but we hardly ever saw or heard them.
Enjoyed Least:
The kitchen was the room we used the most - for eating breakfast, making cocktails and as a gathering place. The various trash cans at the entrance were too small and unsightly.
Surrounding Area:
We visited Montecatini Terme, Lucca and Pistoia, all close enough for a short car ride away.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monsummano Terme was about a 15 minute car ride downhill. Definitely not a walking route, especially after dark.
Tips or Restaurants:
La Foresteria is the restaurant on the next hilltop which also housed a monastery. We ate delicious beefsteak alla Florentine while enjoying a beautiful view!
Directions:
We definitely needed our GPS! We followed the owner's instructions which were detailed and accurate, except that the last street sign to go up the hill to the property was not visible.
Check In Out:
Ann and Alessandro were gracious hosts, all went very smoothly.

Kim, September

Overall:
Better than expected... and we expected a lot!!
Enjoyed Most:
View, privacy, pool, beds, accommodations.
Enjoyed Least:
Slow WiFi.
Surrounding Area:
All that Tuscany has to offer
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monsummano Terme. Too far to walk, especially for the uphill return.
Tips or Restaurants:
We were three couples who rented one vehicle large enough to handle us and our luggage. The roads are much easier to travel in smaller cars, so think twice about having one large vehicle. And by all means make sure to rent a GPS. It's essential.
Directions:
A GPS is essential!!!!
Check In Out:
Very smooth and painless.

Ron, June

Overall:
We had an absolutely fabulous time and the villa was more spectacular then we could have ever imagined.
Enjoyed Most:
The villa inside and out were equally wonderful, it didn't matter what direction you looked you had amazing views. The inside was so very beautiful and very charming.
Enjoyed Least:
Driving to the Villa; we had a van and going up and down the hill was quite stressful.
Surrounding Area:
The proximity to the train station made visiting other areas very convenient.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monsummano Terme, a bit of a hike but, one of the couples walked there and took a taxi back up to villa.
Tips or Restaurants:
The name of the restaurant in Montecatini Alto was recommended by owners (the name ! don't recall) but we took the funicular to get to it.
Directions:
Directions were fine; tried to use a GPS, not always helpful due to the fact we kept losing signal.
Check In Out:
It went very smoothly once we got to the villa; we had a bit of trouble with our rental van breaking down. The owners were so patient with us since we got there a little late.

Theresa, May

Overall:
Overall it was relaxing and certainly lived up to expectations.
Enjoyed Most:
Privacy and relaxing atmosphere and also the overall charm of the exquisitely restored building.
Enjoyed Least:
Unfortunately we had problems with the beautiful pool as the amount of chlorine caused excessive stinging of the eyes. There were a couple of broken pool chairs, as well. We mentioned both issues to the owner. He gave us a small discount on the electricity bill since we were unable to use the pool. Editor's Note: The owner confirmed that the automatic chlorinator malfunctioned, and it has been replaced. For the 2014 season, all outside furniture and BBQ will be replaced.
Surrounding Area:
The views, privacy and relaxing atmosphere, great walks.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Not within walking distance so; we had to drive in.

Steve, July

Overall:
Outstanding. Hope to go back.
Enjoyed Most:
Everything was great. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Surrounding Area:
The view
Tips or Restaurants:
We had three dinners prepared for us at the villa; highly recommend!

Richard, July

Overall:
Wonderfully peaceful stay with the best views and pool in Tuscany!
Enjoyed Most:
This is a newly-constructed villa (2 years old) with old-world materials so that it looks hundreds of years old. Beautiful outdoor spaces; pool, pool house with restroom and showers; back patio; outdoor dining off kitchen; villa is surrounded by olive groves; beautifully decorated villa with antiques and art; hugw new refrigerator; nice washing machine; air conditioning works great.
Enjoyed Least:
Not much counter space on the main-floor bathroom and kitchen. This is easily remedied No hand soap, and not many garbage bags - or directions on how to take it out to the public garbage. A few more outdoor garbage cans would help.
Surrounding Area:
The beautiful, picturesque landscape.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monsumanno Terme is closest, but not within walking distance unless you like a serious workout coming back up!
Tips or Restaurants:
La Foresteria Restaurant was fantastic - just up the hill in Monsammano Alto (the only thing up there besides a church and place for rent). The restaurant has beautiful views of the towns below and the owners' service is fantastic.
Check In Out:
Just ensure that you know that you have to pay extra for additional air conditioning usage. I think we paid an additional 350 euros for the week.
