Property description

Our house is the perfect place for a group to gather and relax in the heart of Tuscany. With spacious and comfortable rooms and a location that provides easy access to all of Tuscany's best attractions, you will have everything you need for an unforgettable trip.

Unlike many old Italian homes which can be small and cramped, our newly built house was designed for comfort with a large group in mind. Piano Giorno (the 'day' floor), is one great room consisting of the living area, dining room and kitchen. The extra large french doors reveal beautiful views and allow you to enjoy the Tuscan country side without leaving the house. It makes the perfect setting for a group to gather, cook, dine, and talk all while enjoying the beauty of Tuscany.

The location of the houses provides a great staging point to see the best of what Tuscany has to offer. The village is located centrally to some of the best sites in Tuscany. Florence (34 miles), Pisa (19 miles), Lucca (20 miles), San Gimignano (31 miles), Volterra (28 miles), the beach at Viareggio (39 miles) and the Chianti wine region (48 miles) all can be reached in under an hour by car.

Getting to the Property: We recommend that people rent a car while staying with us to see the most of Tuscany. Our place is easily accessible from both the Pisa (30 mins) and Florence (45 mins) airport. However you can also make it work with no car. You can arrive at the nearby train station of San Romano or Pontedera and take a taxi or bus 10 mins to our place.

In addition to the comfortable interior, the house has 3 balconies and a patio area for enjoyment of the outdoors. It is decorated in traditional Tuscan style but with all of the modern amenities including great WiFi service.

The house is a newly built attached home, completed in 2008. The house is part of a new housing development in the village. There are some houses in the development the are not yet complete however construction is currently on hold. The house sits on the northern edge of the development on a hill with an unobstructed view of farmland in the Arno river valley.

Car: Recommended

Our home resides in the historic Tuscan village of Castel Del Bosco a part of Montopoli in Val d'Arno in the Province of Pisa. Within walking distance there is an amazing local pizza parlor as well as a small convenience store for the bare necessities and a bus stop. In the neighboring town, you can take a short drive or bus ride, to a full supermarket (10 mins) and bank (5 mins). There is also a major train stop within a 15 min drive in the neighboring town of Pontedera. From this station you have direct access to Florence and Pisa central stations, no switching of trains needed.

The location of the house provides a great staging point to see the best of what Tuscany has to offer. The village is located centrally to some of the best sites in Tuscany. Florence (34 miles), Pisa (19 miles), Lucca (20 miles), San Gimignano (31 miles), Volterra (28 miles), the beach at Viareggio (39 miles) and the Chianti wine region (48 miles) all can be reached in under an hour by car.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: This property is owned by two cousins Max and John. We are happy to answer any questions you have. We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our home!

Why the Owner Chose Castel del Bosco PI, Italy:
Castel Del Bosco is the village in which my father (Fabrizio) grew up. I, along with my cousin, decided to purchase the house here to keep a connection to Italy. This house was constructed in 2007 and we have been the only owners. We use the house primarily for getting together with our families and friends. We also rent the place sparingly to guests throughout the year. We built this house because we wanted a place that we could comfortably allow for large group gathering. Most traditional Italian homes have small, narrow rooms which can feel claustrophobic when more than a few people are inside. Our home has a wide open floor plan and can easily accommodate groups over 10. The house's close proximity to the highway, train station, and to the Pisa airport was also another major factor for choosing this particular place. One can easily get to and from the house as they travel around the countryside and beyond.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home resides in the historic Tuscan village of Castel Del Bosco a part of Montopoli in Val d'Arno in the Province of Pisa. Within walking distance there is an amazing local pizza parlor as well as a small convenience store for the bare necessities and a bus stop. In the neighboring town, you can take a short drive or bus ride, to a full supermarket (10 mins) and bank (5 mins).
