This luxury Tuscan villa sleeps 14, with 5 more accommodated on sofa-beds, with wonderful views of the Arno valley below and the apennines behind. Around the villa there are three gazebos each set in a different spot to enjoy different aspects of the landscape and sunlight. The first, by the villa, has a large table and barbecue. A second is on the large lawn, ideally placed for enjoying sunsets, while the last is by the large private swimming pool, a perfect place to relax with an aperitif.
A short distance away are the remains of the fortified town of Monsummano Alto, now abandoned for the more urbane Monsummano Terme that sprang up around the natural hot Spa waters of "Grotta Giusti", still an active and beautiful Spa resort today. Florence, Lucca and Pisa are all within easy reach of this villa, making an ideal base for exploring Tuscany.
This villa can be booked together with Villa Alessandro, next door, giving accommodation for up to 30 guests.

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
