PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Far from the madding crowd, on the hills of magical Montecatini is Podere Giornolungo, an old ruin dating back to the beginning of the 19th century. During the renovations the owners used natural and antique materials, typical of the culture of Tuscany. The external structure is composed of two main bodies of different heights, with the two fronts facing each other. The lower part is characterized by open-face walls (where materials from a 16th century villa have been used), and alternating small and large windows; the other part is characterized by walls of a uniform plain yellow, on which a small wrought iron balcony and doors and windows framed in sandstone stand out. At first glance they would seem to be two separate bodies but actually they are joined together internally. The area in front of the house offers a breathtaking view over all the countryside with Montecatini and other small towns like come Cozzile, Buggiano, Montecarlo, Ponte Buggianese, Uzzano, Pieve a Nievole, charming places to visit where one can taste the typical products of Tuscany.


The house is disposed on two floors. The main entrance on the ground floor leads into the living area of the villa composed of a study, a toilet, a large living room divided into TV corner, reading corner and dining corner, a kitchen with outside access, a laundry area accessed at the back of the house and a small veranda with outside access. At the end of the corridor between the study and the living room is a stone staircase leading up the first floor with the sleeping area. Along the corridor on the first floor are four double bedrooms, two with ensuite bathroom with shower, and a bathroom with whirlpool tub and shower.


The area surrounding the house is 18.000 square metres with terraces mainly cultivated with olives and woodland. The area in front of the house is covered with gravel and guests can find shade under an oak tree, planted by the owners themselves, and a sun umbrella from where they can enjoy the view in total tranquillity.

Swimming Pool

The pool open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October. Rectangular in shape, it measures 12 x 5 m with a varying depth from 1.10 to 1.70 m and with access to the water by Roman steps. It distances anout 20 metres from the house in a panoramic position. It has lined in PVC, with a stone border and there is a cold water shower. The solarium area is provided with sunbeds and umbrellas.

Stunning, well loved villa with the lot.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Giornolungo. It was perfect for us and we would highly recommended it for families or for groups of up to 4 couples.

We booked through Emma Villas who communicated with us very well.

Luigi was good enough to meet us at the Train Station at Montecatini Terme to guide us to the Giornolungo with our car and to meet the owner, Anna. I would recommend doing this because the road into Giornolungo is very narrow and a little bit difficult to understand the first time that you go in.

On arrival, Anna has stocked the house with an excellent fruit basket, sparkling water, ice and left a small gift of wine. The pantry has a decent stock of basic items (local olive oil, seasonings, etc)

The house was perfect for us. It has a stunning view over Montecatini Terme.

The kitchen is very well appointed. It includes a Pizza Oven (which we did not use). The lounge room is very comfortable and there is a piano if you want to play. There are 5 dining spaces (Kitchen, Dining Room, Conservatory, outdoors under a canopy and outdoors under a very large tree.

The pool area is beautiful and perfectly maintained. There are 8 sun loungers and paired umbrellas. There is a small seating area for 2 under vines and another seating area for 4 under a large umbrella. There is a tree near the pool that provides late afternoon shade as well as shade all day for the car.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are excellent. The beds were very comfortable for us. Each of the bedrooms was spacious and had good storage for clothes.

The villa is completed to a very high standard with beautiful artwork on the walls.

Whilst we were there, the breeze in the afternoon, brought the temperature down in the house, so even though it was low 30's outside, the temperature inside was much cooler. We did not really need to use the air conditioning in the bedrooms as a result.

The house has very easy access to Montecatini Alto where we really enjoyed the little square with it's restaurants. We also visited Montecatini Terme, Lucca, Florence, Montecarlo and the Outlet Mall a little north of Florence.

Fantastic villa, they have thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We have used homes and villas through homeaway all across the world but this villa is outstanding! The view is breathtaking from the patio, the reception rooms and most of the bedrooms.

The owners met us and were exceptionally welcoming, it was spotlessly clean and they provided so many extras it really is home from home, right down to dressing gowns. They had even tuned the grand piano the day before we arrived so my son was playing every evening!!

The drive to the villa is not for the faint hearted but it is worth the extra 10 minutes for the views. It is perfect for Florence, Pisa, Siena and Pistoia along with the more local towns such as Montecatini Alto for superb restaurants.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone, the purpose was to see this part of Italy but we would return just for the villa and the view!!!!!!!! Karen, Dorset, UK.

Everything just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Villa Giornolungo.

We have had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful villa in Montecatini Terme.

The hostesses were so helpful and sweet - they had arranged fruit, juice and wine for us at the arrival, helped us recommend a good restaurant for our anniversary (they even booked it for us) and were ready to answer any question we had in a split second. Perfect service!

The house was outstanding with an incredible view over both the city and mountains, rooms and details that made us feel at home and a poolarea with a big pool and sunbeads where we could spend amazing family-time.

We have never visited a house where everything was perfect from the moment we came.

The city itself is beautiful and we would really recommend visiting Montecatini Alte for good italian food and history and the thermal baths and temples in Montecatini Terme.

Thanks for a wonderful vacation with perfect service and relaxation in an incredible house!

We would love to come back!

Best regards to the Rosellini Family,

from Jorgen & Rikke and children, Denmark

Merveilleuse semaine

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Anna et son mari de partager ce bijou. Le calme, la piscine, la vue et chaque détail de cette magnifique maison rendent le séjour inoubliable.

Les photos nous ont permis de rêver avant le séjour. La réalité était bien au delà.

Encore merci !
