Description from the manager
You are sitting with a book in the garden of your Tuscany villa rental, one bare foot dangling over the side of the lounge chair, brushing the soft green grass. You're reading intently, but after a few minutes a warm breeze tousles your hair and you glance up to breathe in the faintly mysterious aroma of ripening olives. Across the garden the homey stone façade of your Tuscany accommodation near Florence beckons you to walk barefoot across the yard to the door, where you'll step inside and slide your feet across cool terracotta tiles. But before you can get up, you hear a splash-- glancing down the hill you see that your companions are b...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Jane's review of Villa Alessandro
Tuscany was everything that I had expected. It was a wonderful experience that will be treasured for many years to come.
Just really being there. The people were all so nice!
Jeanne's review of Villa Alessandro
We had a great time with our family.
The views and the pool.
The area is beautiful and everywhere we went was great.
Carole 's review of Villa Alessandro
Our experience at Villa Alessandro was every bit as incredible as we could have imagined! What an amazing place for all 3 generations of our family to enjoy together and still like each other at the end of the week.
We especially loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom--what an extravagance! And the negative edge pool saved us from the unexpected extreme temperatures while we were there. Just perfect.
The billiards table, electric keyboard and piano all contributed to our enjoyment and entertainment, as did the enormous yard with room for kids to run around or adults to quietly read a book.
Being in such picturesque countryside, yet close to both a train station and the motorway, ensured we did not miss a thing.
Vicki's review of Villa Alessandro
Excellent! The villa exceeded my expectations! There is nothing I would have wanted different, we had a true Tuscany experience!
Everything...the view, the view, the view...peace and quiet, the rooster, the bathrooms, the owner of the property, the pool area, the cleanliness of the house, the main kitchen, our location to Florence , did I say the view!
Driving up the hill to get to it!
The train station was close, Montecatini Terme; the highway was close, the view, Monnsumano Alto, hiking around the area, felt safe, so many wonderful cities close enough to spend a day or evening...like Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano.
Ted's review of Villa Alessandro
It was outstanding.
Having 10 adults in our group increased the noise factor considerably. The layout of the villa is such that there are a number of rooms where one can get away for some quiet time.
Having to leave after a wonderful two weeks.
Being out in the Tuscan hills but only a short car ride to many wonderful towns and villages. It was very easy to take the train to Florence thereby avoiding the parking hassles.
Jon's review of Villa Alessandro
Absolutely had a wonderful time. Everyone in my group was quite impressed with the villa and the surrounding grounds.
The peacefulness and serenity and the gorgeous views from the property.
If there was one thing that was a challenge was the very narrow and challenging roads to and from town. But that's all I can think of. But as far as the property I couldn't ask for anything more.
The views were magnificant and we were able to hike down the road a short bit then up the hill, where there is a restaurant, La Foresteria, and take in the spectacular panaramic views of the valley below.
Carl's review of Villa Alessandro
Great stay. The owners were MORE than accommodating, including two trips into town to help a member of our group.
Elegant furnishings, terrific location, en suite bathrooms for all.
Sooooo hard to find!!!
Views, quiet, quiet.
Gail's review of Villa Alessandro
Absolutely exceptional. Our stay two weeks previous was spent quietly alone while these two weeks were shared with our family of 17: 9 teenagers and 8 adults. EVERYONE was completely enchanted with the Villa, and loved the pool, kitchen their bedrooms the outdoor meals etc., etc!
Everything, especially the vistas...the live trees, the hills the flowers, the great location to the highway and the Trains which were so very convenient to Florence, Rome, Pisa, Siena and the small towns in the wine country of Chianti.
Cannot think of ANYTHING!
The quiet and peacefulness of the entire area.
Gail's review of Villa Alessandro
The location and the feeling of peace.
Having to leave.
Loved Montecatini which was near to home and the wonderful
restaurants, village scape, the proximity to the wonderful
Spa the availability to the nearby Autostrad.e
Deborah's review of Villa Alessandro
Spaciousness of property, beauty of surroundings.
Directions needed to be amended because of construction on the route.
Response from Rentvillas.com - 10/04/2008
The construction has been finished, and there is an asphalted road to the owner's driveway.
Bob's review of Villa Alessandro
We loved the villa. The villa sits on a hill and has breathtaking views. The grounds of the villa are beautiful. It gives you a true feeling of a Tuscany villa and more.
The outside sitting areas and views.
Lack of larger sitting areas inside.
The close proximity to Florence, Pisa, and Lucca.
Sara's review of Villa Alessandro
We had a wonderful time! The Villa is beautiful, every detail is well attended to, the owners are very gracious and helpful, the dinners we had at the villa were spectacular, the outdoor areas are very inviting and well equipped. With the exception of some noise from dogs, car beeping around the corner, and construction which will soon be finished I think the Villa was an A!
It's hard to say what we liked most because we loved it all. The furnishings and bathrooms were wonderful and the outdoor areas were beautiful. I think we most liked eating breakfast in the fairytale pergola in the yard, and the kids most liked splashing in the pool and playing various games in the yard.
I would say that the construction noise, car beeping around the corner, and some dog barking from a neighbor's house were the only problems, but none of it took away from our love of the Villa or our vacation as a whole.
The setting on top of the mountain is spectacular, and the town, while not picturesque, has everything that you need including a 'to die for' pastry shop. The location was good for touring Lucca, Pisa, and Florence and the rest of northern Tuscany.
Response from Rentvillas.com - 07/03/2008
The contruction has ended. August 2008.
This is a good reason to take a train from a nearby city into Florence, rather than to try to drive and park a car.
Claudia's review of Villa Alessandro
We had a wonderful time. The owners are delightful and helpful.
It is spacious and the grounds are beautiful.
The many levels. Way too many steps and they are uneven and steep. I would not want small children there, and even us older ones had trouble. Also, no instructions on how to use washer, dryer, oven. All directions on the machines are in Italian, of course.
Lots of things to see and do in the general area.
Courtney's review of Villa Alessandro
The ability to sleep so many people. The owners were always available. The views are amazing. The pool is beautiful, but it was too cold to swim. The bathrooms are decorated nicely. Gorgeous furnishings and antiques.
The noise of the nearby complex of apartments with dogs barking in the middle of the night. Also, this property is located right on the part of a road with a curve in it and the cars honk their horns when they come around the corner. Again, more noise, but not much can be done about that.
Monsummano Terme is a small village but it has enough shops to keep one busy and interested. It has great highway access and is very close to Lucca, Florence, and Pisa.
Brian's review of Villa Alessandro
I would recommend Villa Alessandro without reservation for a truly wonderful experience and hope to return. I feel that it was a great experience and that we made some good friends with the owners.
The villa was beautifully furnished with antiques, yet very comfortable to relax in after a day of exploring Tuscan cities and villages, which were easily accessible from the villa's central location. The views were incredible from everywhere on the property, especially from the infinity pool and outdoor dining areas! The villa was extremely well stocked with everything that was needed for a great stay--nothing was overlooked! The owners were very gracious and attentive to all our needs and were not only knowledgeable about the entire Tuscan scene but friendly and a pleasure to be with! My family and I had a wonderful stay and hope to return to this amazing villa in the future, and I can recommend it in the highest possible terms to anyone who seeks a truly wonderful experience in Tuscany.
I would be hard pressed to find anything about the experience to dislike.
The villa was so centrally located that touring the many charming Tuscan hill towns, cities and historical sites was easy and very enjoyable. The area has many great restaurants to sample we did not encounter a bad or even mediocre meal while we were there! And of course the wineries were incredible, especially in Montepulciano and Montalcino!
Jim's review of Villa Alessandro
We had the best time at the villa. The owners were most helpful, not only on villa matters but also suggesting places to go and things to see, where to dine, etc. They were like our local travel guides. The villa was beautiful and the view was magnificent. Like I told a friend this weekend, I can't go back this week, but next month is another story! We will recommend the villa, Rentvillas.com, and YOU to our friends traveling to that part of the world in the future. Thanks so much for your help. We had a wonderful week.
The grounds, including the wisteria arbor were great! The views, from either side of the house down on the town were beautiful.
There was some construction noise from next door. We heard dogs barking at night. The last 1/2 mile of the road leading up to the house was in need of repaving. The remainder of the road was narrow.
Tuscany was great.
Response from Rentvillas.com - 06/03/2007
The construction, which is stopped when clients are renting the villa, was finished August 2008. Next, the road will be repaved.
Judy's review of Villa Alessandro
This property is lovely. It is spotlessly clean and the owners are most attentive to any needs you might have. Construction of a new home for the owners is going on right now, but they managed to keep the noise to a minimum and it was rarely a bother.
Road to the property is steep, narrow, winding, which makes walking difficult....... That, along with the seemingly unfriendly dogs in the neighborhood.
There is no shortage of beautiful areas to visit from this location. Montecatini Terme is a lovely town..... a good "homebase"
Connie's review of Villa Alessandro
The owners of the villa are a lovely couple and were very helpful.
The view and privacy.
Local dogs that howl during the night.
The village and surrounding towns are beautiful, clean and quaint. Easy access to all areas, locals were very friendly and helpful.
Maury's review of Villa Alessandro
Villa phenomenal, beautiful, pool was amazing, 360 views, fantastic! One day it was 105 in Florence, but very pleasant at the villa because at 4:30 – 5:00 every day a breeze would come up. It was great that the property was fenced, so we could just let the kids play without worrying.
No surprises when we got there. With the photos on the website, we found it to be exactly as we thought it would be, but better! Fondest memories were eating on the veranda - almost every meal. Had the chef prepare at least 13-15 meals while at the villa, and were some of the best meals while in Italy. Has beautiful antiques in the house. Wonderful owners. They had us over for dinner our last night there!
2 km from town, and it is straight uphill, very steep and narrow into town, so it was difficult to walk. Have to have a car.
Centrally located – very easy to get to anywhere we wanted to go in 1 - 1/2 hours. Loved the location, close to Montecatini Terme for an easy train ride into Florence.
