About Gioffrè Giuseppe
The artist Giuseppe Gioffrè and his wife Laura open the doors of their home “Podere Pilar” to every form of art, in particular painting, that they love to enjoy together with their colleagues, young artists or simply lovers of art, in the most picturesque corners of their property. Easels are put at the disposition of any interested guests. .Here in Tuscany art and tourism go hand in hand, every view, every corner, every small rural or historical hamlet is art in itself. Since his youth, alongside his studies and, later his profession, he has passionately dedicated himself to painting “sublime interpretation of beauty” as so defined by the great Leonardo da Vinci.
Gioffrè Giuseppe purchased this Villa in 1990
Why Gioffrè Giuseppe chose Monsummano Terme
The beauty of Podere Pilàr Do you know the land where lemons flourish? In the green foliage Golden oranges shine A slight breeze blows from the blue sky Quiet is the Myrtle, serene bay leaf You know him well? Over there, Yonder I with thee, o my beloved, go! Podere Pilar is situated in the lovely hills of the community of Monsummano Terme. It is a typical tuscany landhouse in the middle of olives trees (eight hundreds on four hectars) on various terrasses connected by small pathes, all inviting for a walk. In doing so we can enjoy the perfect architecture of the medieval village of Montevettolini wich is only 500 metres away.
What makes this Villa unique
In altitude of 150-200 m. we are enjoying a mediterranean cliimate protected from cold winds, with an open view to the west and south in direction of the sea offering a medieval and "medici" tipical impression inviting for meditations and a really relaxing stay in a country side environnment.

Beautiful place, in stunning location and owned by a remarkable couple
We had an awesome 2 weeks at this lovely villa. Location was perfect, the villa in great condition and the pool area just fantastic. The owners couldn’t do enough to ensure we had a great stay. Highly recommend this lovely place.
Molte grazie per la bella recensione. Noi ci sforziamo di rendere interessante e piacevole la vacanza degli ospiti nella nostra proprietà, invitandoli a godere della bellezza che ci circonda in un rapporto con la natura semplice e rispettoso.
Perfect for a family vacation. Suitable for reunion, celebration or a getaway.
You could describe it as a little paradise or some might say nirvana. One certainly can’t say enough great things about location, privacy, peace and relaxation offered by this unique property. It has everything we needed and more. All ages and all needs were met - be it for loud fun in the swimming pool, large lunch/dinner barbecues for family and friends or quite time for an afternoon siesta. The owners are delightful and helpful. There is plenty to see and do in the area and easy to take the train to Florence but be back in time for dinner al fresco. Plenty of supermarkets and dining options. We stayed in because the grill is great and we had small children- which meant they could go to bed, while the adults stayed up late. I highly recommend this property. My family thought is was great and had a marvelous time. We will return!!
Molte grazie Elaine per la bella e generosa recensione. Mia moglie ed io ci sforziamo di rendere confortevole e familiare la permanenza dei nostri ospiti nell'Agriturismo Podere Pilar.

La bellezza dei luoghi e della natura ci aiuta e ci facilita. Speriamo di avervi ancora come ospiti graditi. Un caro saluto

Fantastic villa in Tuscany
We had a lovely 9 day stay at Podere Pilar. The villa was spacious, clean and very well equipped. The pool was lovely, also very clean and there were plenty of seats and sun loungers for all of our party ( 8 people). The villa is surrounded by olive groves and the views are stunning. The small village of Montevettolini is on a nearby hill and is about a 10 minute walk away. It is about a 10 minute drive to local supermarkets and Florence and Pisa are also easily accessible. The owners Guiseppe and Laura are very friendly and were very kind to us, leaving us vegetables and fruit from their garden as well as a delicious bottle of olive oil. I would thoroughly recommend Podere Pilar to anyone looking to enjoy a holiday in Tuscany.
