Guestbook Luxury Villa within walking distance village [#13454]

Dear Sabrina,
We cannot say enough wonderful things about this villa. From the moment we drove up to the property, we were awed by the striking architecture and the beautifully groomed grounds. We must have arrived at the peak blooming season, as there were colorful, fragrant flowers and blossoms everywhere. When we were greeted by the owners and led into the villa interior, we were not prepared for how lovely the villa is. It completely exceeded our expectations from the high frescoes ceilings with tall shuttered windows, to the refined yet comfortable furnishings and decor. The villa is very spacious and seems to go on and on forever. Everything is of top quality. The owners are so gracious and even had a generous welcome basket of wine, baked goods, and milk and juice to make our move in more relaxed. We ate many of our meals out on the well furnished terrace. We also enjoyed meals in Alto square at the recommended restaurants a mere 5 minute walk away. We enjoyed the pool nearly every day, especially the children (the weather was hot). The air conditioning in the bedrooms was great on the very hot nights. The location really has it all. We took several day trips by car to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Barga, and the Tuscan coast, and we also rode the funicular down to Terme. All in all, we would highly recommend this villa, and certainly would love to return ourselves in the future.
 
We have already started recommending the villa to our friends.  Beth is in an Italian class, which gives her opportunity to share this experience with other prospective travelers who undoubtedly will be visiting Tuscany some day.
 
Thank you sincerely and please forward our compliments and gratitude to the most gracious host family, and specifically Anna Rose, Louisa and Lucca.

Kind regards,
Al and Beth Fletcher

 

26/04 - 03/05/08 Dear We spent a fantastic week in your beautiful villa. After we had seen the description and pictures on the web-site, wi had high expectation the great thing was that the villa turned out to be much above all our expectations! We would feel the warnth of this beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished house. This made us feel very much at home and confortable: some of us would very much like to pay a visit again in the future! Thank you very much! Best regards from the Dutch - family.<br> 10/05/08 Dear Family, Thank you so much for a very very pleasured stay on your beautiful house and gardens. It’s much more than we expected, and the rooms, flowers and everything are so nice and wellcoming. We have enjoyed the city and surrounding very much also, and we very much hope to come again! Lots of love and thank you once again. From the danish family. May 31, 2008 <br> Dear Luca Family, what a fantastic week! Thank you so much for making it possible for us to stay in your beautiful home. The location is perfect for excursions (we did Florence, Pisa and Lucca), the house is spectacular yet confortable at the same time, the view is stunning. We can’t wait to come back! Our girls could not have loved it more - the pool, the gardens, the "cave", the Teddy Bear room. It’s a perfect house for childrens. We can’t wait to come back. Canadian Family and UK friends. <br> 12.07.08 - 19.07.08 Dear Luca Family, We are also from Norway. This has been a wonderfull week. The villa is like taken out from Italian history. We will allways remember this week, and hope that we someday will come back. One of the family is american and they love the place too. Norway Family and american friend. <br>19.07 - 26.07.08 Dear Luca, Norvegians seem to have invaded this beautiful villa. This week two families from Oslo and one from Trondheim have enjoyed this fantastic house, garden, pool - and view! Seven children, aged 7 months to 15 years all loved their stay here and happy kids means happy parents. We hope to come back some day! Some nervours mothers have been afraid that active kids would tear down these historic wolls but luckily nothing has been destroyed. Norwegian Families <br>Aug . 2nd 2008 Thank you - Thank you, for an unforgettable week in your beautiful villa. We have fallen in love with this house and the fantastic garden. The guys loved the library, the kids loved the pool and the room in the tower, and the ladies ... well, we loved the whole package. A big thank you from 3 norwegian families. <br> 26 july 2008: Hi! Villa surpassed all expectations! It was indeed exactly like the photos show, however what the photos didn’t convey was its scale and perfect position high on the hill with the brilliant valley view below. We were greeted upon arrival, shown around and given all the history and workings of the house then were left alone to enjoy our holiday. Checkout was easy and straightforward and again very courteous. The village was a lovely setting too with about 7 restaurants all within a couple of minutes walk. I would highly recommend this villa! Helen Layzell ----- <br>- Dear Sabrina, Sorry for not giving you the promised feedback any earlier……. My family and I had a wonderful time in your beautiful villa and we were astonished by its size, location and atmosphere - it fully lived up to our expectations. At the first glance of the house we thought we had taken the wrong exit – and couldn’t believe that this was actually the villa in which we would spend a whole week. Best regards to the staff that gave us a very warm welcome and assisted us as in any questions or problems we might have had. We will definitely recommend friends and family to rent the same or similar houses via you – and I definitely hope to be able to come back. All the best from DK - <br>--- Hi Sabrina: I just want to thank you for a wonderful stay at Villa Moresca. Our group was there from September 26th through October 3rd. The dinner was fabulous (thanks to Luca and his family), the accommodations were very comfortable and we all just can’t say enough good things about our experience. It made our trip to Italy very memorable! Thank you for your quick responses to my emails and all your attention to the details. I look forward to booking another Villa with your organization in the years to come. All my best, Mary Jane Parente-Smith

 

Dear Sabrina,

thank you for your message. I am happy to tell that we were most happy with the villa in Montecatini Alto. The villa was outmost beautiful and the scenery was unbelievably charming. The house was full of history and we felt really priviledged to be able to use the premises. Please, forward our warm thanks to the owner family. The villa must be a treasure for them and we really appreciate their hospitality and the possibility to "live like royalty" for a week.

The area was sourrounded by interesting places to visit so, it was really a struggle to decide between sightseeing and enjoying the villa. Once again, all the arrangements were perfect and I am sure we will use your services in the future as well. Next summer we will surely visit Tuscany or areas close by and welcome your recommendations for accomodation then. Regarding the size of our group and timing,  I will contact you later on, towards the end of the year.

Have a nice autumn and let’s stay in contact!

regards,
Nina Koivumäki and Family

 

Hi Sabrina 
We had a wonderful holiday at Villa la Moresca. The accommodation was beautiful and we had a warm welcome from the owner.
 At my request he had organised a welcome pack of groceries etc which we really apreciated and was very helpful regarding shopping and things to do.
 Thanks for all your help when booking the property and information about transfer from airport.
 We loved the pool and the gardens.
 
Yours sincerely Alice

Further Details - Local Area

Montecatini area
the villa is situated in a panoramic area, in Montecatini Alto. This little town is a Medieval burgh, with typical rocky houses surrounding Piazzetta Giusti, the main square, with its typical shops, wine-bars, and little restaurants. Montecatini Alto overlooks Montecatini Terme, reachable in a few minutes, famous all over the world for its Thermal, Beauty and Wellness centers. The villa is placed in a ideal position: 20 minutes far from the Montecatini Golf Club, 30 minutes from the seaside and the most important artistical cities: Florence ( 30 km) , Pisa ( 30 km) , Lucca ( 25 km) . In 50 minutes by car our guest can reach the Chianti and the Maremma areas and the ski center Abetone.Montecatini Alto is the original Montecatini settlement, lying a few hundred metres above the 'new' town. The views from here are splendid, and the delightful Piazza Giusti is home to some good bars and restaurants. Montecatini Thermal Center is located in Valdinievole, in a pleasant and green area at the foot of the hill, where the historical medieval village of Montecatini Alto rises. It is connected with the city through a funicular. Montecatini alto (high) is a characteristic medieval village, abounding in historical events culture and illustrious personages, is one of the most ancient inhabited centrs in the Valdinievole. The Vallis Nebulae, or Valley of Fog, as it was called was, of old, inhabited by the Ligurians, Etruscans, Romans and Longobards and was always of relevant strategic importance because its hill dominated the important roads of communication such as the Cassia, the Francesca and the Romea. The Montecatini Alto of today, a suggestive outdoor masterpiece, does not retain the image of a sole period nor does it have a style with a definite, rigid imprint Instead, it is witness toa historical parable of intense experiences, filled with dark moments, almost total descruction opposed to other periods of growth and splendour. Borgo, Castello, Terra Murata: around the year 1000 this ancient nucleus already had twenty-five house-towers and two fortresses to its name, town walls two kilometres long, built according to the natural course of the two hills, with seven gateways confirming a proud and uncompromising civic nobility and an indisputable strategic and military importance that lasted up until the fatal year of 1315, when Castruccio Castracani, a Ghibelline, lieutenant of Uguccione della Fagiola, laid siege to the castle, took it by storm and sacked it atrociously. Funicular of Montecatini The Funicular looks like one of those little trains of the Western movies pursued by the Red Indians and even its age brings us back to that period: 1898. At the end of the XIX century, Mr. Alessandro Ferretti, an engineer from Genoa, had the idea to realize a ropeway between Montecatini Alto and Montecatini Terme, called respectively "the Castle" and "the Montecatini Baths".
