Le Vie Cave, Monsummano Terme - Pistoia

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 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.

Notes
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.

Pool
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.

Ein schönes altes Haus mit geschmackvoller Einrichtung und tollem Ausblick. Die Küche ist sehr klein, aber gut ausgestattet, insbesondere der Herd hat uns begeistert.

Die Zimmer sind auf den ersten Blick ansprechend, die Möbel (Schrank, Kommode) allerdings sehr alt und auch etwas muffig. Insbesondere das separate Zimmer ist sehr dunkel und kann schlecht belüftet werden (außer über die Eingangstür). Das Bad zum großen Zimmer im Haupthaus ist am schönsten, die anderen eher beengt.

Der Pool ist sehr klein und nicht sehr tief. Nichts für großen Badespaß.

Auf der Terrasse genießt man eine herrliche Aussicht und kann sehr gemütlich die Abende genießen:-)
Local attractions Eine kleine Wanderung kann direkt vom Haus auf den Berg unternommen werden. Montecatini, Pistoia, Lucca sind schöne Ausflugsziele. Eine Wanderung nahe Lucca zu den ehemaligen Wasserhäuschen hat uns besonders begeistert.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:30.09.2019
Thank you for your review and feedback. The owner is sorry to hear about the rooms. They have antique furniture from the 700s and they may not meet everyone's taste. However, the owner will of course consider your advice and see whether to replace something. The owner will also add more lights.
