New 2 bed villa with large panoramic pool 40min to beaches

Overview

Property

Updated: 12-Sep-2016
2 bedroom 2 bathrooms private garden and porch,beautiful large pool with view

Immaculately restored 2 bedroom villa with private covered patio and use of the pool. Historical Pistoia within 15min drive and only 50min to the sandy beaches of Versilia. This newly renovated barn has been furnished and decorated with great character. Friendly and unintrusive owners live few hundred meters away are available in case of need. The property is located in a strategic location to visit Florence by car or train in less than 1 hour. The beaches in Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio are less than 1 hour away by car or train. Lesser known Pistoia, Prato, Vinci are only few towns worth visiting and away from the mass tourism. The peaks of Abetone are also a locals' favourites destination both in winter and summer. For those seeking a peaceful location, the villa is a perfect retreat without compromise on practicality to get into town. Quarrata is only 5 min drive down the road, with its pretty historical centre full of character and away from mass tourism. Must see places in the area are the hidden jewels of Pistoia and Montecatini Terme located within 30min drive. Lucca is a must in your exploring plans at this property. The villa is located on a high location assuring guests with a constantly mild temperature even in peak season. However the villa is fully air conditioned in case you find Italian summers too warm for you.

This charming villa is all on ground floor with entrance through its shady verandah equipped with outdoor furniture. Homely touches and pastel colours will make the first impression. The open plan kitchen/dining room enjoys plenty of natural light. The kitchen has a 2 ring cooker and a small fridge with freezer compartment. In the villa there is a washing machine and an electric grill. There is a good size double bedroom with access to the garden and private bathroom with shower. The second bedroom is a little smaller with 2 single beds that can become double on request. Both bedrooms benefit of a TV SAT with many foreign channels. There is an additional bathroom with beautiful tiles and a large shower. The amicable owners which speaks a fluent English (Basic French speaking) occasionally and discreetly use the pool which measures 6m x 12m and is 1.5m deep all the way.

The pool is located 100meters away and is accessed by a walkway (more practical when using a pushchair) or 10 steps stairway with handrail. The area around the pool is immaculately kept and surrounded by lush vegetation over which there is a fantastic view of the valley. The owners are keen on sharing their hearty produces of the season such as tomatoes and other vegetables that can be found on the way to the pool. On a side of the pool you will find a shaded area with table and chairs and a built in barbecue where to enjoy an outdoor meal.

Amenities include an internet key to plug into your portable computer. It works on a pay as you go credit that has to be replenished by the client (the owner will help you do this).

Beautiful villa with lovely furnishings and surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this villa with superb hosts who spoke excellent English. The house was in a lovely spot half way up a hillside and away from the owners house. The swimming pool area is fantastic with lots of seating and shade and we always had it to ourselves. Perfect for those looking for peace and quiet, but supermarkets were easily accessible and Lucca and Florence were not far away. I cannot recommend this villa enough, mainly because it is beautifully presented in every way and the owners were extremely helpful and friendly!

beautiful, atmospheric, relaxed, great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa le Rose and I want to give my compliments for this very charming little villa. The setting, the property, the interieur was very delightful! We enjoyed so much. Although the villa was small it did not matter at all. Inside and outside were many nice little spots to sit. The swimming pool had the cleanest water I ever saw. Consuelo and her family were great hosts. Very polite, relaxed and great hospitality. Many times we found nice tasting wine, fruit and vegetables in cute baskets on the kitchentable. At any question we had they respond positively. We had a great time! By the way it was also very nice to discover Pistoia, and the weather in the mountains was perfect.

We sincerely hope to come back to this nice and lovely settlement in the mountains of pistoia.

Great view and location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 6 nights in this delightful little cottage, The owner Consuelo was lovely invited us into her house for a drink and met the family. She had taken the time to look up where in Australia were we lived. Had a welcome package and also a little present when we left. I would highly recommend and hire again if we come back.

Pleasent stay

  • 5 of 5

I have rented several houses in Italy for my holiday. And this house is one of my favorites.

I only remember positive thinks. Perfect view from the porch, Very luxury house, It includes all what you want to have, and do not forget especially for the kids WIFI .

Lucca , Florence an Pisa is within 30 a 45 minutes driving distance and also other main cities, can be arrived within an acceptable time.

But the most imported is the hospitality of the family. They gave me a feeling that I was not only a customer , but a special guest. I also was lucky that I was in a period, that there were a lot of vegetable in their garden. And I received several fresh vegetables. And then you taste the difference with the supermarket. But talking about food, then there Is a small minor point . There are only 2 pits for cooking , which can be difficult if you want to cook inside. However this is compensate with a very nice grill outside.

So especially for Consuela thanks for the pleasant stay

A lucky find!

  • 5 of 5

This property and owner definitely deserves 5 stars.It offers everything it states and if anything exceeded our expectations.

The property seems larger than it looks in some of the photos and the quality of finish is excellent.Having two bathrooms is a real plus for families with older children or for two couples holidaying together.

The situation is idylic,tucked up in the hills with great views and a wonderful swimming pool,barbeque's and table tennis table if you just want to chill and get away from it all or many places of interest only a relatively short drive away if you want to do some sightseeing.We left our car at Pistoia and travelled by train to Florence on one day and drove to Pisa on another.Lucca is well worth a visit too.

The owner Consuelo was so kind and helpful and went out of her way to make our holiday the success it was.

We have no hesitation in recommending this villa to all our friends,relatives and work colleagues and do hope to return ourselves at some point.

The property is ideal for guests seeking a safe, tranquil setting as well as a good location to explore major places by car or train Florence (1hr), Lucca (30mn), beaches (40mn), Montecatini spa baths (30mn), Pisa (50mn) and many many more..

Location is particularly indicated for families as temperature is milder on the hill where the villa is located. Also it is strikingly easy to get to the sandy beaches in Versilia as well as to the beautiful peaks of Abetone which is a lovely destination for summer too! Pistoia (10mn) and Quarrata (5mn) are the nearest towns worth a visit and in summer they are animated by street markets and concerts. In August is quieter but still plenty to do or simply relax by the beautiful large pool!
