Description

Special Bookings Conditions - A refundable cash deposit of 800, payable on arrival. During winter only short rentals are available (minimum of 3 nights). Villa Bucolica I can be divided into 2 apartments for smaller groups of 6 or 9 people, each completely independent with its own facilities. Villas Bucolica I & II can be rented together for large groups of up to 22 people.

Set on the edge of Monsummano Terme in the Valdinievole Valley, Villa Bucolica I is a beautifully restored, air-conditioned Tuscan farmhouse with private infinity pool and a spectacular panoramic view over woodland and olive groves. Built in the second half of the 18th Century, Villa Bucolica I, has been lovingly renovated, retaining the true spirit and essence of all things Tuscan.

This property sits in 18 acres of private, tranquil grounds alongside its sister villa, IT1711 Villa Bucolica II.  Both properties can be booked together for large groups of up to 22, perhaps for a special family occasion, but booked individually, each offers privacy and comfort both inside and out with large gardens enclosed by laurel hedges. The large infinity pool with Jacuzzi is private to Villa Bocolica I only, and sits a short distance away from the villa across the perfectly manicured lawn.

The nearest shops, restaurants and tennis are in the village of Monsumanno Terme just 1.5km away where you will also find hot caves – a 200m deep floodlit grotto with 36 degree thermal waters in which you can swim; nature’s own spa! The larger Spa town of Montecatini Terme is only 4km where you will find a larger choice of amenities, including Spas. You are also within an easy drive of the coast at Viarreggio, and the historical towns and art cities of Florence, Pisa, Lucca.


Insider Tips

If you stop in Monsummano terme, you can visit the Slitti chocolate and coffee shop. Worthy of a mention there is the ice cream maker Filippo who produces many chocolate-based flavours, as well as the ice cream shop, Da Gomma, in Montecatini Terme. In Agliana is the handmade chocolate company of Roberto Catinari, a pioneer in the production of chocolate in Tuscany.
