The villa was wonderful and very well equipped but it would be nice to have a land line telephone
The owners were great people and although never knew much English we were able to communicate. We were a group of 12 and the Villa was beautiful and well equipped but a land line telephone for emergency situations would be nice. We were unable to use our cell phones for calling but did have wifi but sometimes very weak reception. My wife had an accident and broke her leg and it was very difficult making contact with people without phone service. The pool area was beautiful but there are many steps to get to it so you want to be in great shape. The restaurant in the village is only a short walk and the owners and their daughter Sara were amazing. Sara was a huge help in getting medical attention for us and in translating for us she was an angel and not sure what we would have done without her. Overall a beautiful place in a small village in Tuscany and we had a great stay until the accident.
A beautiful house in a quiet and relaxing location.
I enjoyed a week in Montecastelli Pisano with my partner and 4 generations of her family to celebrate a birthday. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer property or more beautiful location. We really felt like we were part of the village and local area. The house itself was very well equipped, spacious and very clean. The pictures do not do the house and gardens justice. The pool area was fantastic and we spent many days relaxing by the pool and enjoying the gardens. As we were a large group we had several cars and there was plenty of off road parking for us all. The hosts were very attentive and friendly and made us feel right at home, even bringing us a tiramisu as a gift, which was delicious.
The neighbours and village as a whole were friendly and welcoming with the local restaurant serving excellent wine and food. We even had the pleasure of attending a concert as part of the local chamber music festival which for me, as a music teacher, was a highlight.
The property is ideally located to reach Siena and Florence for day trips and also close enough to spend a day at the beach. Driving from Pisa airport was easy and it was quick to get to local towns to stock up on supplies.
Something to consider depending on your group is that there are quite a few steps to get to the pool area, however, as there are toilets and other facilities by the pool we found we could stay down there for the day.
I would highly recommend the property and the location for anybody wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday where you get a true taste of Tuscan life.
Impressive house in quaint Italian village
I booked this property to celebrate my birthday with a large group of friends.
We were not disappointed. The property was exactly as advertised. The bedrooms were all of a decent size and the living areas could comfortably accommodate a large group of people. The swimming pool was clean and beautifully kept, with toilet and shower. Only downside here was the walk back up to the house, very steep but none of us minded as it was probably the only exercise we had! There were also plenty of sunbeds.
The best part though was the outside eating area. A large table under vines and surrounded by lavender, roses and geranium's. There was a fantastic brick built barbeque and lighting. It was here that we enjoyed my birthday celebration. The agent for the house suggested he could arrange for some local woman to come to the house and cook for us. This we did and I can report that the meal was amazing and I would highly recommend to any future guests.
The local restaurant/bar was very good with lovely staff. Sara could speak good English so there were no communication problems.
The owners of the house were a lovely couple and Tatiana who spoke very good English was extremely helpful and charming. They even brought pastries for us all on my birthday.
There was one problem though that I have to mention. I booked this house through Owner's Direct. On their website it stated that towels and linen were provided (no mention of a charge), also no mention of this on my rental agreement. However, when we were leaving, we were presented with a bill for the linen and towels. Please be wary of this as it slightly spoilt things as an argument ensued. I believe the charges were on some website advertising the property but not on Owners Direct.
All in all though we had a brilliant time and would highly recommend this property

Beautiful Tuscan retreat
We have just returned from a week's holiday at the beautiful Monte Castelli.
The villa itself is comfortable and spacious and is situated in an amazing position overlooking the Chianti hills. The infinity pool and jacuzzi are spectacular and make the climb down the steps to reach them worthwhile! We couldn't wait to return to cool off after a morning of sightseeing in Siena or wine tasting at one of the local wineries.
The owner of the villa is very friendly and cooked a wonderful 8-course meal for us (at a very reasonable cost including wine it is to be recommended!) and it was great to eat local Tuscan cuisine under the grape vines.
We all agreed to return to Monte Castelli very soon and would highly recommend it if you want a taste of the real Italy.
Schönes Haus mit toller Poolanlage in einem ruhigem Bergdorf.
Lage: Das Haus steht in Montecastelli, einem sehr urigem kleinem Bergdorf in der Toscana. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind ca. 15 Min. entfernt. Optimal für Ruhe Suchende.
Haus: Das Haus ist sehr schön typisch italienisch eingerichtet. Es ist sehr sauber. Die tolle Poolanlage ist auf einem angrenzenden Grundstück angeordnet und problemlos erreichbar.
Wir freuen uns sehr, das Sie sowohl das Ferienhaus als auch den Ort
gut genossen haben.
Vielen Dank für die positiven Kommentare und hoffentlich bis zum nächsten Mal ! :-)
The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the north west and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West. From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.
Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated. Florence is the capital of Tuscany. Other important cities are Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Pistoia, Prato, Lucca, Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara.
