Holiday Rental House
Luxury Holiday Villa In Tuscany, Monsummano Alto (Pistoia) Italy Location: You can reach Monsummano Alto very easily from Monsummano Terme, driving on an uphill road of about 2 kilometers, which for the most part is hidden from the surrounding landscape, given the large amount of trees and vegetation that follow the path, which winds up on West side of the hill. Once you have almost reached the top, at the gates of the village, where the old pentagonal watchtower stands, you are rewarded with a breathtaking landscape on the Valdinievole and on six of the ten provinces of Tuscany. Immediately after going past the tower you are in the perimeter of the old fortified walls. On the right a beautiful lookout is the ideal observation point. The landscape and the life of the cities are just below ...Luxury Holiday Villa In Tuscany, Monsummano Alto (Pistoia) Italy Location: You can reach Monsummano Alto very easily from Monsummano Terme, driving on an uphill road of about 2 kilometers, which for the most part is hidden from the surrounding landscape, given the large amount of trees and vegetation that follow the path, which winds up on West side of the hill. Once you have almost reached the top, at the gates of the village, where the old pentagonal watchtower stands, you are rewarded with a breathtaking landscape on the Valdinievole and on six of the ten provinces of Tuscany. Immediately after going past the tower you are in the perimeter of the old fortified walls. On the right a beautiful lookout is the ideal observation point. The landscape and the life of the cities are just below us, but their noise does not come up here, like in an old silent film, giving us an atmosphere of almost total relaxation. From there the road becomes a stone path, exactly as it was in the thirteenth century, and – with a last straight uphill stretch – it takes us up to Piazza Castello, the small village square (where you can park the car) and where the Church of San Niccolao, in Roman-Gothic style, is located. On the right of the church you can find the ancient “Foresteria”, now converted into the “La Foresteria” Restaurant . On the right side of the church there is also a stone arch, which invites you to walk through – on foot – to go to the Eastern part of the village. Beyond the arch you will find the entrance to La Foresteria Restaurant, and 50 meters straight ahead, Villa. Further on, the path begins to descend, until you reach the opposite side of the ancient village, of which some parts of the walls remain and the well known Arco, the so-called “La Porticciola”. Outstanding View on the panorama Awaken your senses in a unique place which you would not expect: have a look at the landscape that, overhanging under your eyes, sweeps far away to the mountains beyond which is the sea.
