This is a large, family friendly villa in Tuscany sleeping up to 19 guests across 7 bedrooms. Furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques, the interior is beautifully presented whilst outside there is a wonderful infinity pool and attractive grounds to explore. At the end of a road, there is no passing traffic making it wonderfully peaceful and quiet.
The villa can essentially be made into one large property or, for those travelling as two families or groups, it can be split into 2 adjoining villas if you prefer. On the ground floor, there are two separate kitchens, 3 living areas, a billiards room, dining room and TV room. There is also a WC and separate laundry room on this floor. Upstairs, there are 7 bedrooms. Four of these are double rooms (one of which also has a spiral staircase leading to a mezzanine level with extra single bed), one is a triple room with three single beds, one is a twin room and one is a single room. The single bedroom has its own bathroom but situated on a different level whilst the triple and single bedroom share a bathroom. All the double bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The interior decor is eclectic and tasteful. The owners have a passion for antiques and have furnished the villa with pieces acquired over the years from various antique dealers, auction sales or antique fairs. Outside, there is a private infinity swimming pool with hydromassage area open from mid April to mid October each year (6 x 12 metres) which is positioned on a terrace just below the villa. There is a changing room with shower and WC nearby. Plenty of sun beds and parasols are provided creating a wonderful area to sunbathe. A gazebo provides shade near the pool whilst closer to the villa there is a covered pergola with large outdoor table and chairs, perfect for al fresco dining. There are plenty of amenities to make a stay with young children that little bit more comfortable. Outside, there is a play area with swing and slide whilst the swimming pool is fitted with an alarm. We would still advise that adults keep an eye on children at all times. Baby equipment such as cots, highchairs and bottle steriliser are also all provided free of charge. For older children and adults, 4 mountain bikes are also provided for guests to enjoy.
The property is located in a relatively unexplored area of Tuscany, untouched by mass tourism and yet it is within easy reach of all of Tuscany's major landmarks. Monsummano Terme is just 2 km away and is the nearest town to the villa. It has a range of excellent facilities, restaurants and shops. Montecatini Terme is just 5 km away. It's a 50 minute journey by train to both Pisa and Florence. Much closer to home, within just 15-20 minutes drive, visitors can reach the Giusti Grottos with their hot thermal baths, the Monsummano quarries, the Pistoia hills and mountains (which offer skiing in the Winter months), the Svizzera Pesciatina, innumerable churches, the Fucecchio swamplands and many small typical Tuscan villages, such as Montevettolini, Larciano, Lamporecchio, Vinci (where Leonardo da Vinci was born), Montecatini Alto and Montecarlo.
