Description from manager

A charming old barn, perfectly located, exquisitely renovated and with breath taking 360° views. The owners of Villa Montelupo know what their guests want. They are proud of their formula which follows the five C's of excellent hospitality: Character, Courtesy, Calm, Charm and Customer satisfaction.

In the countryside of Montelupo Fiorentino, a town on the immediate outskirts of Florence, so famous for its ceramics that it's called “The Town of Ceramics”, is Villa Montelupo, a charming quaint Tuscan construction surrounded by olives and secular cypress trees.

Villa Montelupo is a renovated independent barn, perched on a green and quiet hill, with 360° panoramic and spectacular views of rolling Tuscan hills. It is the ideal place for anyone who desires to unite art, culture and history with relaxation and getting in touch with the extraordinary natural beauty of this magical place.

The original architectural details have been preserved and incorporated into a new, elegant and comfortable design. The barn has been restructured using traditional materials: local stone, exposed wooden beams and Florentine terracotta floors, giving a touch of simple elegance.

Here and there, you will find unusual and carefully thought out details such as fine paintings, ceramics from Montelupo and typical ornaments in character with the building.

All guests are treated to a weekly cuisine surprise so that you can taste typical local home-cooked Tuscan dishes according to the season. On your arrival, you will find a welcome basket with fresh fruit, extra-virgin olive oil harvested from the olive groves around you, red wine from the local vine yards and cellars and typical pasta.

Sit back, relax, watch the sunset, immerse your self in this magical place of astounding natural beauty and find your self again.

Accommodation: Villa Montelupo can sleep up to six people and is composed of a luminous, multicolored and fully equipped kitchen with the latest mod cons. There are two double bedrooms with double antique iron beds and two bathrooms with showers. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and in the living room.

Upstairs from the living room there is an open-plan upper-gallery with two sofas (one converts to a sofa bed for two people). The living area is equipped with Wi-Fi internet connection, Satellite TV, DVD player, stereo with CD player, books, a fireplace with firewood and an antique Tuscan chest of drawers.

You will also find; central heating, a washing machine, an ironing board, first aid box, iron and hair-drier. Pets are allowed at Villa Montelupo upon request.

Garden & Swimming Pool: The wonderful swimming pool (10,5x7,5 mt.) with Jacuzzi pool is furnished with sun beds, reclining armchairs, table and chairs. It is surrounded by lawns and gardens framed by the rolling wooded hills beyond. It is a lovely spot to relax and have a cooling dip. It has been built near to olive groves for those who prefer to enjoy the calmness of the Tuscan countryside.

The garden is large, independent and completely private. It has been carefully landscaped with exquisite plants, flowers and shrubs, and charming secluded seating areas for the contemplation of nature (or fellow members of your party!).
