Vacation Villa Rental Description:



Villa Filippa A is a gracious 40-square-meter (about 430.5 square feet)
apartment which sleeps four people. It features a patio and shared swimming-pool
and garden, all with a wonderful view of the woods and the valley.

It is equipped with central heating, satellite-dish TV, and parking space.

Villa Filippa A has a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, and a living-room
with a double divan bed and a kitchenette.

The place

Villa Filippa is a beautiful villa built as a vacation home. There is a large
swimming-pool and terraces facing the sun and the vast scenery of the valley and
the hills. It is divided into five small apartments.

It is at about 400 meters (about 1,312 feet) of altitude in a prominent position
on the slopes of a hill covered in woods. Around you all you will see are a few
other vacation villas or houses inhabited by people of the place.

You will be on the hills of Montalbano, the hills where Leonardo Da Vinci was
born, a land which stretches between Florence and the sea.

In the sixteenth century, this area was a hunting reserve of the Medici family.
Even today the hills are covered in woods: if you are fond of ecotourism, this
place will definitely excite you. In the area you will find a numerous foot and
cycling paths which will lead you into the discovery of very ancient woods,
archaeological sites, old villas, churches, and old hamlets. You can even take a
wine and food tour on a way called ‘Strada del Vino e dell’olio’ (Road of the
Wine and the Olive Oil) and visit wine cellars and oil-mills.

You won’t be far from the sea. At only 40 km (about 25.9 miles) away, you will
find the small town of Viareggio, famous for its splendid beaches and elegant
shopping streets.

You will also be close to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano: you will
be able to go on convenient daily excursions to search for the cities of art of
Tuscany with their beautiful castles and historical hamlets.

The swimming pool

At Villa Filippa you will have a shared 12 x 5 meter (about 39 x 16 feet)
swimming-pool at your disposal. It is located in a flat area facing the main
façade of the villa. In one angle of the swimming-pool, you will find a
whirlpool corner.

Around the swimming-pool you will find a large sun-drenched area furnished with
umbrellas and sun loungers. From the sun-drenched area you will enjoy the vast
scenery consisting of the surrounding green and the valley.

The swimming-pool is open from the first of May to the 30th of October.

The garden

At Villa Filippa you will have a spacious park some hectares large at your
disposal in case you feel like going for strolls. It is a wooded area in a
sloping land. The land boasts paths and steps which will lead you to an area
furnished with deck chairs so you can relax in the shade of trees or to an area
where there is a barbecue or even to a playground for kids. You can even use
such paths and trails as shortcuts to reach the town of Porciano on foot, which
is about one km (about 0.6 mile) away; you will be hiking amidst the green.

The house and the patio

Villa Filippa A is on the ground floor, and you can reach it from the patio of
the villa by going through a patio door without having to climb any steps. The
patio is spacious and shared with another Appartamento Filippa A unit.

On the patio you will find a large wrought-iron table with chairs and an
umbrella exclusively at our disposal. While sitting outdoors, all you will have
before you is a beautiful view of the swimming-pool and the green of the hills.

In the living-room you will find a double divan bed, a table with chairs, a
satellite-dish TV, and the kitchenette. The kitchenette is equipped with a
four-burner stove and a fridge.

bathroom with shower.

The apartment is completely furnished, well-cared for in details, elegant, and
cozy.

dates back to the ancient Romans and which has preserved, since the year One
Thousand, historical castles, churches, villas and palaces rich in master
pieces, all to be absolutely visited. You will also be near the small town of
Vinci, birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci.

You will be in the area where the ‘Chianti del Montalbano’ wine is produced. And
as an addition to all the cultural visits, don’t forget to stop at the beautiful
wine cellars of the area while taking the “Strada del Vino e dell’Olio” (Road of
the Wine and olive Oil). Don’t miss out on having lunch in one of the
characteristic trattorias, often attended by local people and where you will
taste the genuine Tuscan cuisine!

1 km (about 0.6 mile) away from the house you will find the first shops, right
in the center of Porciano. You will find the first restaurants three km (about
1.9 miles) away. Pistoia is 15 km (about 9 miles) away from the villa. From
Pistoia it is possible to get trains to Florence. If you feel like enjoying some
thermal baths, 20 km (about 12 miles) away are the famous thermal waters of
Montecatini.

In addition, Lucca is 40 km (about 25 miles) away, San Gimignano is also 40 km

city of the Etruscans, is 45 km (about 28 miles) away, Pisa is 60 km (about 37

easily visit the great artistic and historical attractions of Tuscany and also

And if you like Italian fashion, don’t forget to plan a stop at the renowned
