Overview

About the property

A real experience in one of the fewest traditional tuscan hamlets left

Georgia's Home is located in the small village of Montelopio in the heart of the Pisan hills.

Montelopio features a cosy little shop and bar /bruschetteria and it is just round the corner from Georgia's Home.

Its large park, 2 hectares wide, with olive and fruit trees will ensure you a stay of total privacy and tranquility.

The two floors of the villa, each of 100 square meters, are equipped with all the needed facilities and will guarantee you comfort and relax. It has 4 bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin and 2 singles. Its position is strategic for those who love the Italian art and the beauty of the landscape and architecture of Tuscany . It is situated almost in the centre (about 45 min) from the famous cities of Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca.

However , you can spend wonderful moments just sitting in a chair in the patio, drinking a cup of coffee or sipping a glass of wine , watching the park and the surrounding hills , dotted with small and charming villages of Tuscany. Just 8 km away is the village of Peccioli , with shops, supermarkets, bars , restaurants but no less fascinating than Montelopio.

We prepare the most delicious dinners for our guests at the villa with freshly home made tuscan specialities! A real treat!

Less than 10 minutes away is one of the most fascinating and largest (27 holes) golf courses in Italy named Castelfalfi where a 10% off on the green fee will be applied for those staying at Georgia's Home.

You will also have the chance to learn and practice the Italian language here at the home on request, where georgia will be delighted to do it.

Most importantly, Montelopio is only 10 minutes away from Lajatico, home town of the famous tenor Andrea Bocelli, where every year, around July-August, he holds his fabulous concerts with international stars from all over the world!

Your holidays will be a full immersion in Tuscany's famous culture and nature. An unforgettable experience!

About georgia francia

I love being with people, walking along country paths and anything else that implies the contact with nature.

georgia francia purchased this villa in 1997

Why georgia francia chose Pisa Province

This is the ideal place to spend a great holiday, surrounded by nature and hospitable people who live in this unique hamlet. You will really feel like being at home, with all the comforts you need. When I had this house built I just wanted it to be my dream home and I have done my best to pursue that.

Besides, it is situated at an equal distance (30 - 40 Km) from the most beautiful cities in Tuscany.

What makes this villa unique

The scent of wildness, the colours around, the atmosphere of a place that still has a feel of old times

A Place Like Home

  • 5 of 5

Three girlfriends and I stayed here for 9 nights in early October 2016. The pictures really do not do it justice. The house was beautiful and very roomy with a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. There were four bedrooms and two bathrooms which was perfect for us. The kitchen was well stocked with all the tools and plates and wine glasses we could need and we enjoyed making several meals at the house with local ingredients. We also enjoyed several happy hours (when we weren't gallavanting around Tuscany) on the patio in back which was delightful and roomy with a gorgeous view. We received wonderful recommendations from the homeowner for both restaurants and towns to visit and they were exactly spot on. The owners live on the property and although they gave us our privacy, they asked us to let them know if we needed anything and were always quick to respond. As another reviewer noted, DO take them up on the home-cooked meal. It was absolutely fabulous and what a treat to taste some of the local Tuscan fare. Also leave room in your bag to take back some homemade jams, olive oil and local wine. Unfortunately I didn't have the room so I guess that's one more reason to go back (as if I needed one). This home comes highly recommended by someone who can't wait to go back!

A beautiful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully located on top of a mountain with a view over the valley, the owners have there own Olive garden and that's just in front of you. Sitting in front of the house in a lounge chair with a good glass of wine and overlooking the garden en valley, it will only take you a few minutes to forget about work, stress and so on. The patio outside only has sun at the very end of the day, so refreshing if it gets to hot. If you want to sit in the sun you can place your chair at the side of the house. The house has a bbq outside you can use, nice if you don't want to drive to a restaurant at night.

The house itself is well maintained and has everything you need, with a big living room with satellite TV and nice couches, it's comfortable to sit inside on a rainy day. The kitchen is large and well equipped. There is no bathroom / toilet downstairs.

The main bedroom is huge with it's own dressing, the beds very comfy. All the bedrooms are nice and you have two bathrooms, handy if you are with a bigger family.

The owners are very friendly and helpful. Georgia herself has lived in England for a long time so speaks perfect English. They live in a house attached but very much respect your privacy. If you need any help with anything, Georgia will respond right away.

The village of Montelopio consists of 1 street, there is a bar/tabacco and that's about it. There is a small village just 2 miles away where you can buy meat and bread and down the mountain in Peccioli (about 8,5 km) there is a big COOP supermarket.

Montelopio is very well situated to go on day trips, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano, Volterra and Livorno are all reached in 1-1,5 hours. The surroundings where you drive are so beautiful that the trip itself makes it worthwhile. Remember that you will drive a lot in the mountains, but the roads are all well maintained.

So if you look for peace and quiet and a good base to go on trips in the heart of Tuscany, this house is a very good choice.

Amazing villa in excellent location to explore tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my wifes parents and our daughter for one week. The villa is in excellent shape, rooms are well-sized and everything is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. Garden is huge and offers an amazing view of the area. Georgia cares about her guests and helped us with all our questions. Would recommend to book the dinner she offers to her guests, it was very delicious. Please skip lunch, it is a lot :-) I would definitely recommend this villa to my friends!

Dream holiday in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We (married german couple, 53 years) spent eleven days in this beautiful house in the heart of Tuscany in May 2017. The weather was good with us, the sun was shining every day at a temperature between 22 and last 30 degrees. The house is stylishly and comfortably furnished and is located very quiet in an elevated position. It is really very spacious and offers enough space for two families. My brother and his wife had visited us and were especially happy about the second bathroom.

Our day always started with an extensive breakfast on the wonderful terrace overlooking the own olive grove. Almost every day we were able to observe the hoopoe, a beautiful bird, which is very rare not only in Germany. One morning we saw in the garden directly in front of our terrace even a deer graze.

With her loving nature, Georgia has won our heart immediately. She speaks perfect English and gave us many helpful tips when it came to excursion destinations or restaurant visits. The small village of Montelopio is centrally located, from here the most important cities of Tuscany are easily reached, for example San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Lucca, Pisa or Livorno on the coast. The most beautiful thing for us was the Tuscan landscape itself, which starts right outside the front door. Here you can really say "the way is the goal". You can go shopping well in the 8 km distant town Peccioli, among other things there is a large "coop" market.

In the evening we always sat in the super-cozy lounge furniture on the terrace where we enjoyed spectacular sunsets with a glass of wine.

The highlight of our holiday, however, was the candlelight dinner, which Georgia offers to her guests as an option and which is prepared by her husband Renzo. As a vegetarian, it is not easy on holiday, especially in Southern Europe. So we were amazed when Renzo gave us a refined vegetarian four-course menu with a total of six different dishes. What can I say - it was the tastiest thing we have ever eaten! The dishes were tastefully matched and also a real eye-catcher. For dinner we drank excellent regional wine, which can be purchased at Georgia. We will never forget this wonderful evening in this cozy atmosphere at sunset! Thanks again, Georgia and Renzo!

Unfortunately, this fantastic holiday was eventually over. The beautiful, gentle hilly landscape of Tuscany with its many medieval towns has really captivated us. We will definitely come back :-)

Traumhaftes Haus in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Georgia's Haus war wie ein Traum, in einem typischen Landhaus in der Toskana mit weitem Blick in die Landschaft den Urlaub zu verbringen. Die Lage mitten im Olivengarten und der Blick auf die Hügel der Toskana und den Sonnenuntergang - zauberhaft. Viel Platz, liebevoll und komfortabel eingerichtetes Haus, sehr freundliche aufmerksame Gastgeber, viele Tipps für Ausflüge auch abseits touristischer Hotspots, schnelle Reaktion auf Fragen. Montelopio liegt etwas abgelegen auf einem Hügel, dafür aber sehr ruhig und alles gut erreichbar. Hier ist der Weg z.B nach Volterra oder San Gimignano schon das Ziel. Das leckere toskanische 4-Gänge-Menü war der krönende Abschluss unserer Urlaubstage. Nicht zu vergessen das leckere eigene Olivenöl und der leckere Wein aus der Region. Wir kommen gern wieder. Lieben Dank an Georgia und Renzo.

Every day my partner and I work to improve our guest service and the best reward for us is to please our guests so that when they leave they bring a good memory of their holiday here in Montelopio... I sincerely hope you and the rest of your family will come back one day! All the best Georgia and Renzo

Parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné une semaine début avril chez Georgia et son mari. La maison est très bien située pour visiter les villes phares de la région et la campagne toscane. Maison propre, de beaux espaces, cuisine très très bien équipée et une terrasse de rêve. L' endroit est très calme. Idéal pour se reposer. L' accueil est parfait par Georgia et son mari, qui peut vous concocter un repas toscan délicieux sur commande. Les tartes sont délicieuses, notamment celle au potiron. Nous avons eu besoin d'un peu de chauffage le matin et le soir, payant ainsi qu' internet au delà d' une certaine consommation. Bref très bonne semaine chez Georgia qui fait tout pour que vous passiez un agréable séjour.
