TUSCANY - LUXURY MEDIEVAL VILLAGE RETREAT

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Bagni di Lucca

3 double bed 2 bath luxury modernised Tuscan villa in village with mountain view

Sleeps 8 + cot, available all year for self catering. 3 double bedroom 3-storey luxury house with stunning views of Mt Coronata. Located in beautiful Tuscan medieval mountain village. Totally refurbished. 2 min walk to village delicatessen/shop and 2 bars in heart of village. 20 min drive to Bagni di Lucca for pool complex surrounded by woods, banks, restaurants, supermarkets, shops.

Our recently refurbished (by local artisans) Italian home is in the centre of this quintessential medieval village. We reckon some of the foundations date back some 1000 years. Chestnut beams and terracotta floors are juxtapositioned with fully modern facilities, this 3-storey house built into the side of the mountain is cool in summer and snug in winter (central heating throughout). In the summer find yourself lounging on 1 of the 2 balconies or on the spectacular terrace below. Or curl up in winter by one of the log fires. All bedrooms, kitchen and living room have stunning views of Mt Coronat.

Travel: Travel: Pisa airport: 1.5 hour's drive away.

UK flights to Pisa from Gatwick, Stansted, Bournemouth, Bristol, Coventry, Doncaster, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester. Car hire is essential.

Relax in our italian home

  • Review Submitted: 03-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2012
We had a great time on our holiday and Montefegatesi was a nice way to finish our holiday. The people there are very friendly and many speak English. Our day trips to Pisa and the other places were great.

We had about five days that we just stayed in Monte and relaxed. Thank you for your home it had everything we needed. We also enjoyed the meal that was prepared for us on our arrival, we ate leftovers for two days.

Thanks again for sharing your home

Fantastic old house - in a very remote village

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
Well equipped, beautiful house well furnished in a good mixture of old and new, in the midst of a small village which cannot be accessed by car and hence is very silent. Place enough for 4 adults and 4 kids. Everything in place including dish washer, washing machine, barbecue, (TV and DVD if required, too) and well maintained. Good help from an English-speaking local support. Including sheets and towels which were changed after the first week. Views are as marvellous as they appear. Due to the 840m above sea climate is fantastic. Some nice walks around and particularly close to the Orrido di Botri, the deepest Tuscany canyon.

The only downside is that you have to drive roughly 12 km on a small and winding more or less one track road to reach the valley. So wanting to go to the coast line in Viareggio, go to Florence or even Lucca takes its time - if this had been a little less it would have been the 5th star. Still a recommendation.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review. The village is indeed out of the way (to my mind a fairytale landscape) and mostly pedestrianised - the house is 5 minutes walk from the parking. We are delighted you appear to be as enamoured of it as we are. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for the use of your home over the last week. The village is lovely and unspoilt, and the views are stunning!

Charlotte also made us feel very welcome on our arrival, and it was good to know that she was on hand if needed.

Wonderful house in a wonderful village

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 19-May-2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2013
My wife and I have stayed here on each of our three visits to Montefegatesi. The house has amazing views from three different balconies each on a different level. There is also a basket with a rope to lower picnics down to the bottom terrace. It is clean and well furnished and has everything needed to cook great meals. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms have great showers and the linens and towels are clean and plentiful.

The town is surrounded by trails of all lengths and difficulty levels, making repeated trips here very rewarding as each time we find new challenges as well as visit our favorite places. Descriptions of all the trails are available in the house, as well as by email request. If you like walking in the woods, this is a marvelous place. We travel without a car, which is a little more challenging, but we check and double check our bus connections and getting here has worked fine. Once in Montefegatesi, Nicoletta's store has everything we need, fresh fruit, veggies, yogurt, meat, bread, pasta, wine and beer. There are two bars in town, and Richard's place serves what we consider to be the best pizza in the world.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the next year or so.

The village of Montefegatesi is in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of the Orrido di Botri National Park (deepest gorge in Italy). Explore the extensive mountain path walks at a lower or higher level, have a picnic on the top of a bare mountain or under the shade of the chestnut trees.

Bagni di Lucca is a traditional spa town with a superb swimming pool complex surrounded by chestnut woods, plus bars, restaurants, shops etc.

Lucca is a delightful medieval walled city with fine architecture and many places of interest plus superb shops and restaurants. The Lucca festival in July 2008 featured Sheryl Crow (from E28) Alicia Keys (E35). Lucca is surrounded by the Lucca hills which are famous for their wine. Set within these hills are some superb historical country houses which are well worth visiting.

Pistoia, Barga, Carrara, Viareggio are all within easy reach of a day trip.

Florence is just one hour away.

Siena and San Gimignano are 1.5 hrs away

Notes:
Cot available. Central heating throughout (from pellet stove in living room. This 3-storey house sits on the side of a mountain; there are secure balconies (the views and drops are spectacular) and the terrace has protective railings around it. Suitability for children: given the situation and aspect of the house we would suggest it is most suitable for adults and families with babes in arms and sensible, well behaved children. The house is 5 minutes walk from the car park via hilly cobbled lanes. It is built into a mountain; the ground floor is in the middle of the house, with the study up a few steps on a mezzanine floor leading on up further stairs to the 1st floor bedrooms. The lower ground floor (master bedroom, shower/laundry) is reached via a stone staircase from the ground floor. The terrace is a floor below the lower ground floor and is reached via a spiral staircase. Some of the stairs are quite steep.
