Lovely property, good pool, Sam was very helpful

  • 5 of 5

House was lovely, bedrooms comfortable, and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay and loved trips out to Pisa and to Florence both less than an hour away. Drive up to the villa was a little hairy! But we found it easily. Only down side was some building work going on next door in adjoining house - nothing we could do about that really but owner requested they did not start work early in the mornings so hopefully no one else will have a problem - overall we had a nice week with lovely weather in a great location many thanks to Sam and Alessandro for your help and letting us enjoy the lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely holiday. Everything that you could possibly need provided at the villa. Nice greeting from Sam who was very helpful. Welcome bottles of Prosecco and Chianti which was a nice gesture. Comfortable bedrooms. A great outdoors area with a nice pool. Jacuzzi not working but not missed. Kids played lots of table tennis! Lots of restaurants a short drive away. Good supermarket too. We usef the nearby train station to travel to Florence. Drove to Pisa and Lucca as not far away. Would recommend this property. Perfect for relaxing and exploring Tuscany.

Wonderful hilltop Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this Villa for a week in April. It was well furnished and well supplied for a luxurious spring vacation. The view was outstanding, and we enjoyed outdoor dining overlooking the lights of Montecatini. It was a perfect countryside starting point for enjoying the cities of Tuscany.

Dream vacation house

  • 5 of 5


Everything was just perfect and I will definitely recommend it to anyone. We were 6 people in the house and not once did we feel crowded.

Rooms were big enough and the view was just breath-taking.

Perfect "base camp" to travel through the region with day trips as it is very central to all major attractions in Tuscany.

A must for anyone that consider staying in Montecatini

Fabulous house, incredible view and great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is located on a hill side next to Montecatini Terme and has a beautiful view over the town and across the beautiful landscape of Toscany. We spent hours admiring the view both from the pool and the terrace.

The house itself is just great. Everything is as described (or better), including, to mention a couple, the kitchen facilities and the WIFI. Although you might not want to spend much time inside given the views, it's definitely a nice place to spend a rainy or cold day.

The house is about 3km to Montecatini Terme and given it's on a hill it's better to take a car or a taxi (Tip: there's plenty at the train station and they are happy to give you a card; fares by the meter). That said, it's just 1km walk to Montecatini Alto and, although steep, a very nice walk. Alto is a small, picturesque town with a couple of very nice restaurants (WOW highly recommended) while Terme is a bit larger and also has it's share of good restaurants. You can also book a cook to come to the house if you feel too lazy to cook yourself or go out for a dinner.

I highly recommend this place for everyone and hope to return for another relaxing holiday at the Beautiful 19th Century Farmhouse.

A Dream House.

  • 5 of 5


This house was amazing! The pictures do not do it justice.

The minute we walked in, we asked if we could add some more days. Plenty of room, bathrooms are great, kitchen is big and has everything needed to cook a huge meal. The view is unforgettable. Although the weather was too cold to use the pool, it is private to the house and beautiful as is the big deck. The owner is wonderful and his assistant, Sam , is great. The location is perfect as there is attain station in town which we use to go to different places. The tram to Montecatini Alto was fun and the views awesome. The house is close to Lucca, much. I recommend it highly.

The presence of humans in the area of Montecatini Terme is very old. Probably since Paleolithic times, the region was inhabited by nomadic hunters, but it has been thoroughly recorded only from the Mesolithic period, especially in the hills of the Valdinievole of which Montecatini is the major center.b

In the early part of the 14th century, the borders of Valdinievole faced a new power: Florence. The Florentines had been the dominating power of the place over, Siena and Arezzo, but while Florence was about to realize its plans for domination in the north-west region the revolt of the Ghibellines in the early 1300 was able to slow down this process. The leader of that revolt was Uguccione della Faggiuola, who in 1312 became imperial vicar and master of Pisa and Lucca. This directly threatened Florence which meant that war was inevitable given that this outcome would forge the future of the whole region of Tuscany.

The decisive year was 1315, when Uguccione della Faggiuola attempted to lay siege to Montecatini, considered a strategic stronghold, but thanks to its excellent location and to the allies of Florence, the attempted siege failed. On 29 August under the walls of Montecatini, the decisive battle was played out. The Guelfi army were taken by surprise by the Ghibellines and by Uguccione della Faggiuola with thousands of casualties and prisoners.

The following year Uguccione della Faggiuola was forced to flee and Castruccio Castracani of Antelminelli took his place. The latter became first lord of Lucca, and then Pisa and was able to extend his power in Tuscany more and more. In 1323 Castruccio Castracani attempted to seize one of the strongholds of Florence, Fucecchio, but was wounded and forced to retreat, and so began a slow but sure recovery of Florentine power, and its return to dominate the town of Montecatini.

In 1530 at the foot of Montecatini, baths were constructed and adapted to contain the already known Spa waters, which had assumed the name "Medici" and "of blackbirds".

Montecatini saw war again, and was in the center of the dispute, which began in 1554. The players were Cosimo I de' Medici and Pietro Strozzi who were representatives of Florence with a Hispanic alliance with Siena as well as a French alliance. On 21 June of that year, Montecatini was occupied by Siena. Montecatini was actually not opposed to this occupation, because Cornelio Bentivoglio declared himself as a liberator.

Montecatini, the once impregnable fortress fell into poor repair caused by the centuries of battles and general lack of maintenance. So when the Medici and their troops went on the offensive, Montecatini fell under the Medici who plundered mercilessly, even taking away doors and windows. Cosimo not happy and full of resentment for Montecatini, ordered to "destroy the foundations", and so day after day, eight hundred soldiers destroyed the walls, towers and houses, leaving only one hundred and sixty houses, three convents, the palace of the Podestà and the Palace of Justice standing after this onslaught.

The area had remained a health hazard due to the stagnant water (of Padule of Fucecchio). Local entrepreneurs were flanked by those from abroad, and under the pressure of the Grand Duke Leopold, built channels for the disposal of water and the land was reclaimed, Baths were constructed to facilitate the use of the popular hot springs: Tettuccio 1779, Bagno Regio 1773 and the Terme Leopoldine 1775.

The following centuries passed quietly until the early 20th century, specifically 1905, when what was once a small village at the foot of the hill of Montecatini became "City of Bagni di Montecatini". This name, however, had no luck, and was changed later to the present name of "Montecatini Terme".During the same period around the start of the 20th century, the tourist experience was diversified and improved. The hotels had grown in number and quality, it was also noted the necessity to combine health, fun, relaxation and sport. It soon became home to fashionable restaurants, theaters, nightclubs, and a casino. Celebrities began to frequent the city. In fact, between the end of the 1800s and the early decades of the 1900s it was easy to meet, in the tree-lined avenues, parks or at the bars of the city, people like Giuseppe Verdi, Pietro Mascagni, Ruggero Leoncavallo, Trilussa, Beniamino Gigli, or Luigi Pirandello.

With these celebrities Montecatini became a true meeting point of international renown: here discussions of politics, business closures were agreed and its reputation grew to the point that, in 1926 an attendance of 75,000 non residents was recorded in the city, a remarkable figure for that time.

The reputation of the town was recognized with the visit from the leader of government, Benito Mussolini, 16 May 1930, with Lando Ferretti. Montecatini Terme is one of the most popular destinations in Italy for thermal spa tourism. The local specialty, waffles Montecatini, made with egg and sugar.
