About the property

1 independent Suite in a stone farmhouse

Casa Diletta is a typical Tuscan stone farmhouse, surrounded by green olive groves, only 5 minutes from Montecatini Terme. lt is centrally positioned between Lucca and Florence and is the ideal starting point to get to the most beautiful places in Tuscany within one hour's drive.

Casa Diletta offers one accomodation, Tessa Suite, which is part of the big farmhouse but has independent entrances and its own outdoor space.

Tessa is lovely and comfortable, tastefully furnished with Tuscan style antiques and nice tapestry.

The Tuscan"cotto" floors, the original trussed ceilings and the nice paintings on the walls create a charming atmosphere.

At the disposition of our guests are Wireless Connection, Shared Laundry-Room and Barbecue Area.

Our guests can relax in the "Solarium", an open space among the olive trees where can sunbathe. It has chairs, an umbrella and a shower.

About tiziana cappelli

My name is Tiziana.

I was very fortunate and pleased to have discovered the possibility of hosting in my home , some years ago.

It is my pleasure to warmly welcome my guests and I feel gratified to have the cultural and personal exchange.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The two suites are named for my daughters Tessa and Stella.

The house itself is named for my youngest daughter, Diletta. But I chose the name not only for my daughter but also because Diletta signifies beloved and delightful and this is how I feel about my house .

I live in the main part of my house with my daughters. I am at disposal of my guests for any information about the surrounding area or things to do.

The apartments are very well equipped but , as I say when people arrive : "If you need something more or miss anything, please, just tell me"

Charming Property in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at Casa Diletta in the Tessa unit which is the largest and includes a fully equipped kitchen and a huge bathroom with a soaking bathtub.

We arrived later than expected but Tiziana met us with a smile. She is charming and speaks pretty good English.

The whole property is absolutely beautiful with an olive grove and apple trees. It has breathtaking views of Montecatini Alto from the great outdoor terrace. We enjoyed the night views with wine in the evenings and breakfast in the morning. We had to tear ourselves away from the property to go site seeing. We wished we had booked this property for longer.

Tiziana made apple cake with apples from her trees and shared it with us. It was great.

Tiziana provided a booklet containing info on local restaurants, etc.

A grocery store was about 5 or 10 minutes away. We cooked full meals in the kitchen with ease. It also has a large dining room table including a sofa bed in the next room. The bedroom is very roomy with plenty of storage and beautiful furniture.

This property is centrally located so you can visit Pisa, Lucca, Florence and other Tuscan towns very easily as day trips.

We plan on coming back to this property many times. We miss it already.

Wonderful Stay- Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was the second time That we have stayed at Casa Diletta. We could not have found a better place nestled among olive trees overlooking a valley.

We stayed in Tessa apartment which is quite large with a full kitchen, living-dining area, a huge bathroom and large bedroom.

Tiziana is a wonderful host and she even made an authentic tuscan dinner for us to enjoy with her and another couple one night.

We'd go back in a heartbeat.!!

My heart is at home here!

  • 5 of 5

I am a repeat visitor to Casa Diletta and highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a really lovely comfortable spot to stay. A great base for all kinds of day trips to the many places of interest in the region. I think of Casa Diletta as my "home away from home". Tiziana is an exceptional host providing a warm hospitable place for all of her guests. It's a good idea to have a rental car, but the train travel from nearby Monticatini Terme also connects visitors to other destinations very easily.

Man müsste Poet sein, um für das, was CASA DILETTA auszeichnet, die richtigen Worte zu finden.

Die geschmackvolle Ausstattung der Räumlichkeiten und der weite Blick über die toskanische Landschaft - gepaart mit Tizianas unvergleichlicher Gastlichkeit - garantieren, dass bei einem Aufenthalt in CASA DILETTA auch die Seele der Reisenden in Italien ankommt.

Wer das Herz der Toskana schlagen hören möchte, dem sei

CASA DILETTA wärmstens empfohlen.

The most amazing stay ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on the 15th of August. It was an incredible day. Warm and lovely and not to mention the best part when we arrived at the house. The house peaked under some beautiful olive trees. The owner was lovely and polite and we go to learn some Italian while communicating with her. We got the top apartment and it was more then enough for me and my family. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was the most beautiful in the house. I would definitely recommend this for anyone whose looking to escape city life for a peaceful and relaxing vacation in the country side. Me and my family thoroughly enjoyed it and we will most definitely be coming back in the future.
