Le Vie Cave, Monsummano Terme - Pistoia

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Externally, an unassuming cottage on a narrow unpaved track, Le Vie Cave delivers surprise after surprise, from its dramatic views and designer interior, to the stainless-steel kitchen and eyrie of a garden, complete with private pool and glorious gazebo. Perched high above the spa town of Monsummano Terme, the villa offers a wide choice of pleasures: pamper yourself with a wellness day at nearby Grotta Giusti, the largest thermal cave in Europe; enjoy the much overlooked riches of Pistoia – ‘Tuscany without the crowds’ – just down the road; or venture a little further to Lucca, Florence or Pisa; not forgetting the beach at Viareggio, which is less than an hour away.

With three bedrooms, three bathrooms and plenty of choice when it comes to delightful places to enjoy a long, cool drink, secluded sunbathe or quiet hour or two in the shade, the villa copes well with a full house of six. But its intimate scale, hidden near the top of an escarpment, has been equally enjoyed by parties of two. You’ll love planning where to go next but also when to fit in mornings and evenings ‘at home’.

Our Thoughts
Le Vie Cave stands out from the crowd. Its position is both private and privileged – something you can’t help but feel in the lovely garden, tucked high against a rock face, catching both sun and spectacular views. The gazebo, with its good-quality furnishings, invites you to spend hours there. Similarly, you’ll want to linger over al-fresco dinners on the terrace immediately outside the kitchen: lit by a chandelier, with lights twinkling from the Nievole valley below, this is a romantic spot. The villa’s stylish and well-appointed interior also makes it a good candidate for low-season stays.

Three bedrooms. Three bathrooms, two en-suite. Please note that Bedroom 3 is accessed only from the garden. If you would like Bedroom 2 made up as a twin, please request this when you book – a day-bed will be added to the room. The final 500 metres of the approach road are narrow and unpaved or part-paved, but in good condition.

A combination of stone and ladder steps provide access to the prefabricated, above-ground pool, which sits at the rear of a sheltered garden largely given over to lawn. Nearby, there are sunloungers and a gazebo furnished with a sofa and two armchairs. Pool size: 7m x 3m, 1.3m deep. Open from May to September, weather permitting.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket.

Een prachtig en gezellig huis met fijne bedden en alle comfort.
Ook de keuken was fantastisch ingericht heel professioneel!
De eigenaar bracht 's avonds wijn en ijs, dat was echt een lieve verrassing. Ook werd er gelijk actie ondernomen als wij belden voor iets. Ook het gemak van meerdere grote supermarkten in het dorp vonden wij heel fijn.
Ook het uitzicht op de rotsen bij het zwembad en mooie cactussen vonden wij spectaculair. Ook fijne wandelingen naar boven kunnen maken in een prachtige natuur.
Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad, in ieder geval was het boven onze verwachting!!! Wij komen heel graag weer terug!
Local attractions Wij zijn naar Florence geweest en wilden daarna nog eten in het restaurant boven op de berg bij het kasteel bij Le Vie Cave maar dat ging niet omdat wij niet hadden gereserveerd! Wij vonden het ook heerlijk om gewoon zelf te koken, zeker met zo'n geweldige keuken. Wij hebben een rondleiding gehad in Museo Nationale di Casa Giusti in Monsummano Terme door een enthousiaste man die heel veel kon vertellen.
