Check us out on Facebook for more info - www.facebook.com/vistaitaly

Our house is the perfect place for a group to gather and relax in the heart of Tuscany. With spacious and comfortable rooms and a location that provides easy access to all of Tuscany's best attractions, you will have everything you need for an unforgettable trip.

Unlike many old Italian homes which can be small and cramped, our newly built house was designed for comfort with a large group in mind. Piano Giorno (the 'day' floor), is one great room consisting of the living area, dining room and kitchen. The extra large french doors reveal beautiful views and allow you to enjoy the Tuscan country side without leaving the house. It makes the perfect setting for a group to gather, cook, dine, and talk all while enjoying the beauty of Tuscany.

The location of the houses provides a great staging point to see the best of what Tuscany has to offer. The village is located centrally to some of the best sites in Tuscany. Florence (34 miles), Pisa (19 miles), Lucca (20 miles), San Gimignano (31 miles), Volterra (28 miles), the beach at Viareggio (39 miles) and the Chianti wine region (48 miles) all can be reached in under an hour by car.

Getting to the Property: We recommend that people rent a car while staying with us to see the most of Tuscany. Our place is easily accessible from both the Pisa (30 mins) and Florence (45 mins) airport. However you can also make it work with no car. You can arrive at the nearby train station of San Romano or Pontedera and take a taxi or bus 10 mins to our place.

In addition to the comfortable interior, the house has 3 balconies and a patio area for enjoyment of the outdoors. It is decorated in traditional Tuscan style but with all of the modern amenities.

The house is a newly built attached home, completed in 2008. The house is part of a new housing development in the village. There are some houses in the development the are not yet complete however construction is currently on hold. The house sits on the northern edge of the development on a hill with an unobstructed view of farmland in the Arno river valley.

About Max & John

Check us out on Facebook for more info - www.facebook.com/vistaitaly

This property is owned by two cousins Max and John. We are happy to answer any questions you have. We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our home!

Max & John purchased this house in 2007

Why Max & John chose Montopoli Val d'Arno

Castel Del Bosco is the village in which my father (Fabrizio) grew up. I, along with my cousin, decided to purchase the house here to keep a connection to Italy. This house was constructed in 2007 and we have been the only owners. We use the house primarily for getting together with our families and friends. We also rent the place sparingly to guests throughout the year. We built this house because we wanted a place that we could comfortably allow for large group gathering. Most traditional Italian homes have small, narrow rooms which can feel claustrophobic when more than a few people are inside. Our home has a wide open floor plan and can easily accommodate groups over 10. The house's close proximity to the highway, train station, and to the Pisa airport was also another major factor for choosing this particular place. One can easily get to and from the house as the travel around the countryside and beyond.

What makes this house unique

Our home resides in the historic Tuscan village of Castel Del Bosco a part of Montopoli in Val d'Arno in the Province of Pisa. Within walking distance there is an amazing local pizza parlor as well as a small convenience store for the bare necessities and a bus stop. In the neighboring town, you can take a short drive or bus ride, to a full supermarket (10 mins) and bank (5 mins). There is also a major train stop within a 15 min drive in the neighboring town of Pontedera. From this station you have direct access to Florence and Pisa central stations, no switching of trains needed. The location of the house provides a great staging point to see the best of what Tuscany has to offer. The village is located centrally to some of the best sites in Tuscany. Florence (34 miles), Pisa (19 miles), Lucca (20 miles), San Gimignano (31 miles), Volterra (28 miles), the beach at Viareggio (39 miles) and the Chianti wine region (48 miles) all can be reached in under an hour by car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time traveling through Europe. The trip in Italy was by far the highlight of the 2 weeks. Your house is unbelievable and I cannot wait to bring my wife and daughters here next year to see it. Thanks again it could not have been any better.

Beautifully furnished villa, gorgeous view

  • 5 out of 5
When we arrived and opened the front door we were so impressed with the ambiance and warmth of the great room with the gorgeous large floor tile and the country style furniture. The view from the balcony through the french doors was beautiful. The owners hadn't forgotten a thing to make our stay enjoyable. The kitchen was lovely and well equipped complete with dishwasher. We had plenty of seating for meals. There were laundry facilities and a media room with a vast assortment of dvds. Several of the bedrooms had balconies with lovely views. The bathrooms were equipped with everything we needed. They had written directions for everything inside the villa. There were umbrellas, maps and travel books. They thought of everything and to top it off, it is a convenient location, close to the rail station and many charming places in Tuscany.

Very nice villa

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very nice place to stay. Off the beaten path, beautiful views, very clean house. Centrally located to many sites in Italy, our family used it as a springboard to access many of the towns nearby. John went out of his way to make sure we would get the most out of our trip, and followed up promptly if we had any questions. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to spend time in a central location and see Italy by car.

A Travel Agent’s Review of Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
Allow me to begin by saying that I have been in the travel industry for 28 years and have lived abroad for 4.5 years from 1993 to 1997. We planned this trip to celebrate my husband and my 35th wedding anniversary and traveled with my two sisters-in-laws and their husbands celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. This was a special occasion for all of us and we wanted it to be special.
The planning began a year ago with looking for a villa in Tuscany to rent that was reasonable and could accommodate three couples with bedrooms with queen beds and at least two bathrooms. Many villas only offered two full beds and the third bedroom with twin beds. We also wanted a central location to explore Tuscany and did not plan on renting a car due to the expense of a van and none of us wanting to drive on the narrow and winding roads.
I discovered Max and John’s villa in Castel del Bosco and emailed Max for further information. Max was extremely prompt in responding to my questions and this would continue to be the case in all future correspondences. After searching for a while for a property to fulfill our group’s wishes, we settled on this villa. The pictures of the villa provided on the internet are true to what you will find when you arrive. The home is clean, spacious and you will find that Max has thought of every detail. Everything is labelled in English and no needs are overlooked down to a hair straightener, bathrobes, plug adapters, movie DVDs in English and Italian(although we think he should have one of the Godfather), cookbooks and guidebooks. With airline luggage weight restrictions, having a washer/dryer at our disposal made packing much less of a challenge. This villa could easily accommodate a much larger group and I would love to return someday with my sons and their families. The views from the “great room” balcony were spectacular of the Tuscan countryside and the far to the east town of Lucca. We give Max an A+ for his beautiful home.
