Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Florence Area - La Scuola di Furio Villa Maura

Family holiday self catering accomodation with garden, scenic pool. Free WiFi

LA SCUOLA DI FURIO Holiday Home is a small holiday complex in a very quiet countryside (within the Parco delle Cerbaie) overlooking a green valley. We rent our welcoming, comfortable and functional apartments and villa for holidays, weekends, short and long stays. You can stay in a relaxing location, out of the hustle and bustle of the tourist craze and still reach in less than 1 hour almost every popular destination in Tuscany (Lucca, Pisa, Vinci, San Gimignano, Florence, the beach). So, in the morning you can have a massage by the pool, take a walk to the little country shops or go to the supermarkets in Fucecchio (5 kms) with your car, then visit one or more tourist attraction in Tuscany, come back to enjoy a swim our fantastic pool (12x6), relax in the large equipped garden sipping an aperitivo while the tomato sauce boils in the kitchen, then have a relaxing dinner in the garden alfresco with your loved ones and a night cap when the children are in bed. The 6 apartments (all equipped with AC) in the former school building have 1, 2 or 4 bedrooms while Villa Maura (equipped with AC) offers some more comforts and sleeps up to 6. Parking inside the property. Nice country pizzeria / restaurant at walking distance. Free Wi-Fi.

*Everyday Life*

A big plus for all our guests is that we live nearby. We will welcome you, show you around, provide maps of the area and give you a list of restaurants - based on our personal experience - and enjoyable excursions. We are always on hand if you need us but we will leave you to your well deserved holiday!

We sometimes see that families arrive here with their car full of groceries and food (after maybe a long journey under the hot Italian summer sun). Please note that most of the food you buy at home is available also here. Local supermarket Coop is open from 8AM to 9PM every day except Sunday; and 9AM to 8 PM on every other Sunday. Another supermarket, Conad, is open from 8AM to 8PM and also every Sunday morning from 9AM to 12.30AM. And another smaller grocery shop, Gelsastore, is open any day of the year from 4 in the morning to 1 at night (fresh bread on Sundays, too)!

At 1,1 kms there is Il RitroVino di Caino, that sells good quality local food, cheese, extra virgin olive oil and wine. You can stop for a cappuccino and pastries in the morning and have breakfast there or buy fresh bread also on Sundays!

* Market *

A medley of colors and scents awaits you every Wednesday morning in Fucecchio in Piazza XX Settembre.

*Restaurants!*

One of the reasons to rent a holiday accommodation is that you can cook your own food and avoid eating out. You can shop at farmers' markets, try local recipes, keep your children entertained while cooking... But sometimes you just want to relax and unwind with a nice glass of wine and let others cook! Among other local area information, we will give you a list of nearby restaurants (one of them is at walking distance!) we usually go to! And we will be happy to call and reserve a table for you, if you like!

*Palio di Fucecchio (horse race)*

Every year since 1981, there is this horse race in Fucecchio. The town is divided into contrade (just like Siena!). You will spend your holidays at La Scuola di Furio Holiday Home, so in contrada Torre, whose colours are white and blue. It is a brilliant experience. Before THE day, there are lots of dining occasions in each contrada, sometimes al fresco, in order to spend nice time together, get to know each other and have a home style meal with some good wine. The date of the event is usually the third Sunday of May. In the morning you can attend the historical parade with its lively display of 1200 persons in rich locally made costumes along the streets of Fucecchio. The 3 afternoon races take place at la Buca del Palio (Via Fratelli Rosselli in Fucecchio). Palio might last until sunset! The races only last a minute or two, so you have to spend some time in Fucecchio beforehand, soaking up the atmosphere and the rivalry between the different districts, each of which is represented in the first two races. For a fucecchiese, Palio is like Football World Cup for Italians! The date for 2016 is the 22nd of May!

*Infiorata di Corpus Domini (flower carpets)*:

On the Sunday of Corpus Domini the streets of historic Fucecchio are covered by beautiful floral carpets. In Fucecchio the custom of sprinkling the streets with flowers and forest sprigs compose sacred figures, dates back to the 30es but it was only in 1990 that the Flower Festival has become a tradition.

The carpet of flowers are displayed in the old city centre, starting from and coming back to the Collegiate Church. The materials used are many varieties of seasonal flowers (poppies, brooms, carnations, roses ...) and many other type of natural material (grapes, coffee, wood chips ...).

*Padule di Fucecchio, a bird watchers' paradise*

The Padule di Fucecchio is the largest non-coastal marshland area in Italy (around 1,800 hectares!).

The Padule is one of the last refuges for many plant species (the yellow floating heart or water fringe, now very rare in Tuscany, or white and yellow pondlilies, etc.), and is a big attraction for birdwatching enthusiasts, especially during the spring migration. Of particular interest are the herons, which nest in colonies, and migratory birds like the stilt bird, crane and black stork. Depending on water levels, it is also possible to attend a "barchino" ride! There are 9 nature trails in the marshes, most on foot, some by car.

About Ms. Tiziana Fierli

I was born in Fucecchio and I have been living here all of my life. Even if I have been working in the fashion industry for more than 20 years now, I am more and more interested in the holiday rental world. I also attended a course to become a professional manager in hospitality and tourism management; it was fun to come back to school. I post something new everyday on our facebook page, just look for lascuoladifurio !

Ms. Tiziana Fierli purchased this villa in 1998

Why Ms. Tiziana Fierli chose Florence Area

My father (Furio, hence "La Scuola di Furio") bought this property in the late '90. It was in such a state! No heating, no electricity, no running water! He started to restore it (with Italian burocracy, this process can take a lot of time and even more patience!), then came with this idea: 'Why don't we rent to tourists?'. At that time (pre-internet era for me) I thought it was a terrible idea. 'Tourists in Fucecchio? This is not going to happen!'. How wrong I was!

What makes this villa unique

It is easy to fall in love with this location! Splendid views over a tranquil valley, fantastic pool. Real possibility of reaching from nearby Empoli train station: Florence in 24 minutes, Pisa in 28 minutes and Siena in 45 minutes (stress free solution), or Lucca in under 30 minutes by car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ciao Tiziana

We are now back at home, after having 3 great weeks in Europe.

We enjoyed staying at your property, and would certainly recommend it to others. We would be interested to stay again in warmer weather - enjoying the pool and the BBQ.

The best part of our accommodation was the personal attention which you provided us - both by email before we arrived, and your sharing of local knowledge when we arrived. There is no doubt that this helped us to be better prepared to enjoy our brief time in Tuscany.

Grazie per la vostra ospitalità!

Fantastic Stay - Wonderful Villa in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Maura for a week at the end of June/early July. There were two couples -- early 40's and mid 70's. We loved the location and the setting. Just a short drive outside of Fucecchio. The house setup was wonderful -- two bedrooms upstairs and a nice living area, dining room, and kitchen on the main floor. Two full bathrooms with showers so each couple had their own. Tiziana was a wonderful host. She had a nice book of information about the Tuscany area and gave us great tips about where to go and things to do. Having a car is a must when staying here. There really aren't any places within walking distance, but the scenery and solitude you experience while staying here are what you came for. The pool provided a wonderful place to relax and cool off after a day of touring.

For us the location was ideal. From Villa Maura, we took day trips to Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, and several other hill towns. We also took an extended day trip to Cinque Terre, driving to the La Spezia train station where we left our car and took the train. Lucca is the closest of these to the Villa and we visited there twice during our stay. While Fucecchio is not really a place for tourists to visit, the Coop supermarket there was wonderful and where we shopped most everyday. We ended up cooking most of our dinner meals, which worked really well as we got to experience Tuscan life more like a local than trying to dine out every night. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and cooking utensils, and Tiziana even brought a new coffee pot while we there as the one we started with stopped working.

Working with Tiziana through email to make arrangements was very easy and she provides a secure transaction internet portal to make payment. If you want a great stay in Tuscany in a convenient location, and the ability to experience Tuscan life like a local, you will love staying at Villa Maura. Tiziana was extremely hospitable and takes care of her guests. Probably our best VRBO/Home Away experience.

Perfect Plaxe

Wonderful property, perfectly run by Tiziana and Walter. Very relaxing stay in July, nice pool, hammocks to laze away the day. Easy to get to Pisa, Florence, Lucca if needed. Plenty of authentic Tuscan restaurants around also that Tiziana will recommend.

Beautiful place to stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Villa Maura (La Scuola) is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit many places in Tuscany or just relax. We kept in touch with Tiziana through emails before we arrived, she made dinner reservations for us, and booked a boat ride on the Arno River in Florence. If you need a tour guide in Florence, Tiziana can get you Giulia's contact information. She was an excellent guide! Thank you Tiziana for referring her to us. Tiziana took care of any problems that we had after we arrived. She led us with her car to a grocery store in Fucecchio and also had a friend lead us to a restaurant with excellent food and service, "Osteria Numero Uno", that I'm not sure our GPS would have found. Tiziana also helped me with getting train tickets in S Miniato. The train station has free parking and an easy train trip to Florence or Cinque Terre. We drove to Lucca because it was only 35 minutes. The grounds around Villa Maura were beautiful. I wish we would have stayed longer. We didn't have time to enjoy the pool or cook outside. The one bedroom has a balcony with awesome views, the beds were comfortable and the house was comfortably furnished. We did find time for a fun ping pong game in the basement. I would recommend La Scuola as a perfect place to stay in Tuscany. We were only there for 3 days and I wish we would have planned on staying longer.

Beautiful Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks here in summer 2013. We rented the villa and one of the 2 bedroom apartments. The location is stunning, even better than the most beautiful pictures. The buildings, grounds, and pool are in top condition. The hosts Tiziana and Walter were very kind and helpful with advice for making the most of our stay. I would have been happy to stay at the villa and enjoy the views but there is so much to see in the area. There are many beautiful hilltop towns within a short drive. The nearby train station connects you to the rest of Italy. We took day trips to Florence, Lucca, Pisa, and the Cinque Terra. There is a nature reserve a quarter mile away that has some nice walking trails. There is little traffic so you can wander the countryside in relative safety. There were 6 adults and 2 teens in our group. Everyone had a wonderful stay. We shopped for food at nearby grocery stores and cooked some great meals both in the small kitchen and using the outdoor grill. We would love to return!

Owner's Response: Dear Mr. Peter R. many thanks for writing this lovely comment. Just a few days ago it was one year since the big outdoor dinner in the piazza in Torre! My friends visited again so we actually talked about who was there... Well you were! I am a big fan of your family and especially of your lovely "mamma". I felt honored that you choose our properties for your family holiday. So I really, really hope that you can welcome you back again soon! Grazie mille! Tiziana and Walter

Great apartment near Pisa, Lucca and Florence

  • 4 of 5

Villa Maura is wonderful. It is perfectly located for day trips to Lucca, Pisa and Florence, all about an hour away. It was lovely to sit out front and drink our morning coffee while looking out over the rolling hills and distant vineyards of the countryside. The owners are great, very communicative. This villa is a little off the beaten path so it's very relaxing. The trattorias in the area are authentic, with amazing food and are truly home cooking.

Villa Maura an ideal Tuscan base for the family

  • 5 of 5

Villa Maura proved to be an inspired choice for our Tuscan experience. Based in the countryside outside Fuccechio it was a great base to get out and explore what the region has to offer.

We spent 4 nights and would highly recommend the property to anyone as a holiday rental. We hav a 14 year old and 10 year and they happily shared a room whilst the master has a balcony to sit out and enjoy the view of the pool (which was a great bonus at the end of a day's sightseeing for everyone!). The table tennis table down in the basement also got a good workout. There's lots of living space and bathrooms to keep everyone happy!

The property is immaculately presented with everything you need to have a relaxed stay. Tiziana was a great host and a fountain of information on how and where to go in the area. Lucca is a short drive and a beautiful town to visit and hire bikes to ride around the walls. Florence we would ecommend driving to Empoli station and getting the train (which is inexpensive and frequent). Locally San Miniato is worth a visit. Nearby Fuccechio has a large supermarket to stock up everything you need and with your own bbq at Villa Maura it's nice, on a long overseas trip, to have options to cook at home whilst the kids jump in the pool.

We'd defintely come back again and would stay longer if we could. Thanks again Tiziana; it's a place that we're sure to talk about alot over the years to come.
