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.

What's in a name? Il belvedere di Gino is undoubtly THE most beautiful belvedere we have ever experienced. A striking view both day and night from uphill on the town of Montecatini, the small communities of Buggiano on the 'colle', the hillslopes covered with olivetrees ...
If you are looking for a place to relax, peaceful and beautiful it is right there : no sound of traffic, only the joyful sounds of kids playing in the swimmingpool and you can watch the swallows, bee-eaters and the birds of prey hunting for their meals, right in front of you.
On your terrace you are surrounded by all sorts of colorful fruittrees : orange trees, bergamo, lime- and lemontrees, figs, pears, apples...
Grandparents, children and grandchildren had an exceptionally good time at this lovely villa, with all comfort needed and its spectacular views.
We could count on a very warm welcome by the owner, thinking of all our needs: bringing us a very appreciated Italian dinner the afternoon we arrived : sweet melons, a tasty lasagna and a great wine, making us feel very much at home ! We received many practical suggestions as well including adresses for the best pasticceria (after tasting some!), bakery shop, foodstore,...as well as making reservations for a restaurant in old Montecatini.
His daughter Serena made sure the poolwater was impeccable and that all our needs were met concerning the house and the rooms.
We had a truly lovely vacation (young and old!) that exceeded our expectations in Il Belvedere di Gino. We can only warmly recommend this beautiful villa!
Local attractions visiting historical places such as Pisa and Lucca, as well as the picturesque villages of the Montecatini surroundings. Restaurant visit with funicular ride (treat for the kids!) to old Montecatine.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:
