Colle di Sotto, Montelupo Fiorentino - Florence

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 to 6 guests Private Pool 4 - Very good - Very good 4

Sitting on a small hill about 45 minutes drive from Florence, Colle di Sotto surveys the alluvial plain around the nearby Arno. With panoramic views and a wide, open sky, it is one of the most convenient bases for visiting an impressive cluster of Tuscany’s cultural jewels. Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa and Siena are all within easy striking distance, not to mention the less well-known but charming Vinci, birthplace of Leonardo, and San Miniato, both almost on your doorstep.

The villa itself is a colourful little gem, which can sleep four to six people. Its large private infinity pool, set a few steps away on a lower level and which can be lit at night, is, however, close to magical. Feel like royalty as you walk down internal steps into water that appears to lap a wide surrounding landscape of vineyards and olive groves; sunbathe on the furnished terrace, cool off under the nearby pergola or enjoy the pool’s hydro massage area. Finish the day with an al-fresco meal on the furnished terrace to one side of the villa.

Our Thoughts
This is a small villa made characterful by its colourful interior palette of earth and sky tones, quirky styling and clever mezzanine lounge, which maximises light and space. Make use of the sofa bed and you can accommodate a party of six, but the two bedrooms make it ideal for four and a summer palace for two. You’ll always remember the glorious sunrises and sunsets here. The pool gives Colle di Sotto an undoubted wow factor, but don’t forget to revel in the locality’s major cultural riches.

Een warm welkom bij aankomst van de gastvrouw Francesca.
Een zeer gezellig en complete accommodatie op een prachtige locatie. Uitstekend geschikt om de regio te verkennen. Voldoende supermarkten binnen 10 minuten in Montelupo-Fiorentino. Treinstation in Montelupo-F of Empoli voor makkelijke verbinding met grote steden.
De accommodatie was een prima verblijf met alle wenselijke voorzieningen.
Een heerlijk buiten terras voor ontbijt of BBQ met zonsondergang.
Een eenvoudige trap verbinding vanaf het huis rechtstreeks naar het zwembad zou aan te bevelen zijn. Het terras rond het prachtige zwembad heeft onderhoud nodig.
Het laatste stukje aflopende toegangsweg tot aan de poort dient verbetering.
Local attractions Diverse restaurants bezocht in de nabije omgeving. Allen met heerlijk eten en goede service. Let op openingstijden in de avond. In de directe omgeving is het heerlijk touren door het mooie landschap. De historische steden als Florence, Pisa, Luca en Siena zijn het bezichtigen meer dan waard maar druk. Met trein of auto goed te bereiken. Parkeergarage`s net buiten de stads kern en alles op loopafstand te bezichtigen.

OWNER COMMENT: Buongiorno, grazie per la recensione. Sarà un piacervi avervi nuovamente come miei ospiti se tornate in Toscana. Sarà inoltre mia cura provvedere alla manutenzione della pavimentazione intorno all'area piscina prima dell'apertura nella prossima stagione. Grazie. A presto. Francesca
