Il Belvedere di Gino, Buggiano - Pistoia and Montecatini Terme

5 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 to 10 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

The clue is in the name of this fine villa – few places can command a true belvedere view. Here, on the terrace that runs along the front of the main house and the annexe to its side, and from the large pool just above the villa, the Arno Valley puts on a stunning show, rolling southwards to the sea.

You'll appreciate just how high this villa sits on the mountainside when you drive up the winding road through the olive groves to reach the garden gate. In fact, this is so special a position that it benefits from a microclimate. There’s always a pleasant breeze, so it's never too cold or too hot. These are also the perfect conditions for citrus fruit to thrive in, as you’ll see from the oranges growing here.

If you can take your eyes off that view, there are other distractions worthy of your time. At the nearby medieval hamlet of Buggiano, crowned by a castle, you can pick up essential shopping. Venture a little further and you’ll find more choice among the chic streets of Montecatini Terme, as renowned for its designer shops as its ancient hot springs. Grand day trips beckon in Pisa, Pistoia and Lucca, which is also the home of the annual Puccini Festival.

But these mesmerising views will keep calling you back to this perfectly private perch. You can gaze at the landscape through the windows of the villa, too. Step into the pink stucco house to discover a traditional property that has been sensitively restored with a blend of high-quality materials, fittings and furnishings. The cool neutral décor is enlivened by judicious splashes of colour. It’s a labour of love by the owner, who is ready with a warm welcome and able to lay on five-star services as you desire.

In the main house there is plenty of space for groups of 10 to come together in the large kitchen-diner and sitting room with a hearth at its heart. Six of you can stay in the three bedrooms here, one ensuite and the others sharing a family bathroom. The rest of your party will find a restful home in the adjacent annexe, set out on the first floor, up an external flight of stone stairs. Here there's another open-plan arrangement for lounging, dining and cooking and two further bedrooms and bathrooms. These lucky guests also have access to an elevated terrace – there's no getting away from those fabulous views at this luxurious villa.

Beautiful villa high in the hills. The views are stunning and you can see for miles. Giuliano, our host, lives further down the hill and was so friendly and helpful. The villa is set in an olive grove and the house is surrounded by orange and lemon trees. Giuliano’s tomatoes were ours for the picking and were delicious.
We are a mature couple and came with our two daughters, their husbands and children. The pool was very safe, being gated and set to the side of the villa. We never felt it was a danger.
The annexe was brilliant, giving one family total privacy when needed. It was well stocked with everything needed to be self sufficient if required.
A great villa if you like peace and quiet but not too far away from a large supermarket at the base of the hill and a few kilometres from Montecatini.
Thank you Giuliano!
