Each of these Tuscan holiday flats is furnished very attractively with a mixture of modern and antique furniture.

Each has its own furnished garden area, and the apartments are provided with TV (not satellite), air conditioning and central heating. The kitchen is equipped with hob and fridge-freezer only.
You'll find private parking ten yards from the villa, and there is a restaurant/pizzeria half a mile away; note that this may close during part of August. The village half a mile from the villa has a bank, pharmacy, food shops and a post office. The nine-hole golf course at San Miniato is 20 kilometres away. Pets are not allowed. Please note that you do not need a car to stay here as there is a good local taxi service. Also note that during the high season the minimum stay is three nights.
Vinci is in the very heart of Tuscany, buried in the countryside and yet within easy reach of all the major Tuscan cities. Lovers of great art, architecture and culture will find this a perfect base for exploring this cradle of the Renaissance, with Florence and Pisa 40 minutes away, Lucca 45 minutes and Siena 55 minutes distant.
These Tuscan vacation apartments are just 30 minutes drive from Pistoia and Montecatini. Make time to visit Pistoia - off the tourist track that takes visitors to Pisa and Florence, it is nonetheless a lovely city. You'll uncover a couple of millennia of history here. Originally the Roman town of Pistoria, this was the last stand of Catiline and his fellow rebels against the Republic of Rome. It was the beginning of a turbulent history. Pistoia was a Ghibelline city until the Guelphs of Florence conquered in 1254. The Guelphs then dissolved into two warring and poisonous factions, and Pistoia earned its reputation for intrigue, infamy and internecine warfare. Michelangelo called the people of Pistoia 'the enemies of heaven'! You'll find things a lot friendlier now, with this lovely walled mediaeval city boasting a fine Duomo, some lovely old churches, and some terrific collections of painting and sculpture.
Montecatini meanwhile is a chic spa town, and you can visit to take the waters. A funicular railway takes you from the lower town to Montecatini Alto (a fun way to spend a morning, especially for the children), and once at the top you can explore the stalactite-laden Grotta Maona.
Travel 55 minutes from the villa and you reach Versilia and the sea. There's a host of things to do in and around this lovely Tuscan holiday home. The owners will be pleased to give advice and tips on days spent enjoying yourself in Tuscany.
