Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Montopoli Val d'Arno - 30 Via Caravaggio, CDB

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 11

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 including great WiFi service.

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

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 they 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.

Great location, lovely home.

  • 4 of 5

The location was central to everywhere we wanted to visit.

The house was perfect for our family. Very clean and comfortable. The views were amazing. The local people were extremely friendly and helpful. We would love to go again.

We only had one issue and that was that the lower level never warmed up. It was a bit chilly and our daughter and her two young children were on that level.

Fabulous Villa in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Dear Max,

We are so grateful to you for sharing your villa and being able to explore the surroundings. Our day trips - amazing. Returning to the villa to recharge & enjoy time together with our friends - memorable. Plus visiting with owners of the local pizzeria gave a real slice of life in Tuscany.

Here’s to the good life, Salute !!!

Great rental home in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 nights in the villa with a group of friends. It was wonderful in every aspect – plenty of room, very clean, nicely furnished, a convenient location, and lovely views. It truly felt like a home when we returned from our daily outings.

We had the best combination of beautiful countryside living and easy access to the highway for day trips to Pisa, Lucca, the coast. It was a short drive to the train stations and grocery stores.

We will definitely recommend the villa to friends travelling in the area.

Unbelievable great villa centrally located

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect for my group of 10. It was centrally located in the middle of Tuscany. It was well equipped with hair dryers,coffe pots,etc. Clean with tons of sheets ,blankets,etc. Best part was Laura who came in and cooked for all 10 of us several times during our 10 day stay. We were in the middle of wine country away from the Florence crowds. We are definitely coming back. Jack Mcwalter Boca Raton, fl.

Great house in real Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

This is a very large house in a suburb of Pisa near the Florence border. About 30 minutes from central Pisa and 45 minutes from central Florence. Very secluded and quiet area yet with easy and convenient access to the FI-PI-LI highway. This is the real Tuscany, and in the middle of the wine country, with many wineries just a short and very scenic drive away. About 30 minutes from the very scenic town of San Gimigniano.

The house specifies 5 bedrooms but it seems like even more than that. There's even a ground level with 3+ unfinished rooms for the potential of even more rooms. Every room has ample space, and the rooms are very tastefully furnished with local artisan furniture.

This house combines the best of both worlds. The comfort of a home with the luxury of quality furnishings and modern conveniences. The location in a quiet suburb yet with easy access to all that Tuscany has to offer.
