This elegant Tuscan vacation rental is found between Florence and Pisa and makes the perfect place for exploring all of Tuscany without long day trips. Only a short distance from the historic town of Montelupo where you will find shops with the traditional Tuscan ceramic, great Italian restaurants and classic cafes.

The owner has completely restructured the hayloft that made up part of this typical Tuscan farmhouse, and turned it into a delicious two bedroom two bathroom with full kitchen and living room area.

The eat-it kitchen area is fully equipped with all modern day amenities including a full size refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, stove with oven, toaster, electric kettle and many other small touches that make a vacation house – a home away from home.
There are two bedrooms with bathrooms. To the left of the kitchen you will find the first of the two bedrooms, tinted in a baby blue. The bedroom has a double bed and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom has a shower, WC, bidet and sink.

The second bedroom is located behind the kitchen. You will find a second bathroom with a shower and right next door you will the second bedroom. This is a double bedroom with a beautiful wrought iron bed stand. This bedroom has French doors which lead out to the covered terrace overlooking the pool area.

The nearby Montelupo Fiorentino has a beautiful historic center and we recommend for dinner the restaurants „Antica Osteria del Sole” (excellent for Pizza and beef) or the “Osteria Livornese” (for delicious fish meals). For dessert try the well-known ice cream shop “Malagigi” – all in the centre of Montelupo.

You love the little details that are all over this villa – such as the high ceilings with their wood beams, the terracotta floors, the top quality lighting and a beautiful selection of linens.

Fast internet-connection is available. You need to bring your own laptop.

The owner will arrange individual cooking classes and wine-tours for you on request. 

You can rent a bicycle at the villa: 5.- Euros per day and person.

PETS are allowed at COLLESOTTO and can stay with their owners. Pets, accompanied on a leash, are allowed access to all public areas, including the garden (unfenced), with exception of the pool area. Extra charge, to pay directly on site at check-in, Euro 100/day per pet.

The loft area above the kitchen is a cozy little sitting room with fireplace.  It makes the perfect area to relax  and enjoying the Sat TV and DVD recorder.  This area is furnished with two comfortable sofas, of which one is a full size sofa bed.  Thus the villa will accommodate comfortably up to 6 persons.

There is a full size private pool in a panoramic position over Montelupo. The pool is open from mid may to mid September.  

The entire estate is surrounded by age old olive trees, in an area that is particularly representative of the typical Tuscan beauty.  Not only is the villa in an excellent position for day trips to the larger more famous sites such as Florence and Siena - but by following the main road which leads to the villa all the way through the nearby town Montespertoli you will treat yourself to Tuscany at its best with olive groves, vineyards, sloping hillsides and stone farmhouses.

Steph & Paul Steph & Paul, , United Kingdom

Thank you very much for a lovely stay at Il Collesotto. We couldn't have asked for a nicer villa or a better view, absolutely stunning especially at sunset! It has been the perfect way to finish off our honeymoon; a good mix of visits to nearby towns and cities and relaxing by the wonderful pool. Thank you for all your help with organising the wine tasting and massages, and for your vey kind gifts when we arrived and your mother's delicious Tiramisù - Yummy! We would definitely like the recipe for that! Hopefully we will be lucky enough to see you again in the future! Love

Dear Francesca, we had a marvelleous Holiday in Il Collesotto! Thanks for your hospitality. We enjoyed Montelupo, San Gimignano, Panzano, Siena, Lucca, Viareggio and of course Florence. Thanks to cental position of the villa. Hope to see you in Istanbul!

Family Brekalo Family Brekalo, Munich, Germany

Dear Francesca & family! We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Il Collesotto on this green hiltop with its panoramic position. We had a great view over Empoli and Montelupo Fiorentino. As it's not usual for us to come here for Christmas holidays we felt very comfortable with the central heating. The surroundings of the villa are really quiet and charming and what to say about landscape with its typical olive-trees, cypresses and vinegards. The strategic position of Il Collesotto allowed us to easily reach Florence, Fiesole, Siena, San Gimignano and a lot of restaurants with good wine and good cuisine. The villa is fully equipped with all necessary. Once again thank you for everything - especially for the delicious cake!

Dear Francesca and family, thank you for such a warm welcome and lovely villa! We really enjoyed the beautiful pool and the wonderful view, especially at night! Also, thank you for the delicious Tiramisù. All the best for you and your family!

28 July 2016

Phil, Lynda, Josh, Martha, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom

What a wonderful holiday! We would greatly recommended Florence, San Gimignano and Lucca, excellent on every way. Thank you for the wine, olive oil and Tiramisù cake. The villa was the perfect place to come back to after a long, hot day. An evening dip in the wonderful pool was the best way to cool down.

Buongiorno, Francesca! My husband and I are still dreaming about our wonderful visit to Italy last week. We have looked at the photographs over and over already! Many thanks for your hospitality, guidance and advice on the best drivers/cooks/guides. I'd love your mamma's recipe for the vegetable soup, if possible. Again, thanks for all you did to help make our 20th anniversary extra special!

Thank you for such a lovely villa and pool, and for providing all the amenities such as the high chair and crib. The tiramisu was a great surprise and delicious. We enjoyed many Tuscan experiences including the wine festival in Montespertoli, the dinner at Oliveto's Castle, a horse carriage in Florence and walks through vineyards. We very much enjoyed speaking with your neighbour Lando and "his chickens". Grazie!

Chris & Kate Rose & Mahanzie Chris & Kate Rose & Mahanzie, ,

Thank you for having us in your villa for a great week in Tuscany. We saw Pisa, Siena, Greve, Florence and even a bit of the west coast (fantastic). San Gimignano was spectacular. Special recommendations: - "Antica Osteria del Sole" dor "Bistecca" (T-bone steak); be prepared for "rave" - Viareggio; great place for lunch after Pisa - Rita's dessert!!! - Piazza market on Sunday in Greve in Chianti Wonderful time in region and the house. Surely someday we will be back! Warm regards.

Maxwell John Baxter, , Australia

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The place wea superb. It was the perfect place to stay for visiting the Tuscany region. Our trips to Siena, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and San Gimignano were equally superb. The final night in Montelupo at a restaurant in a lovely quiet street was the perfect. Thanks once again.

Pieter Jan Stegeman & Eliza Pieter Jan Stegeman & Eliza, , Holland

Thank you for the wonderful stay at Il Colle di Sotto. We really felt at home and enjoyed the pool and beautiful view. Of course we also did a lot of site seeing and experienced the Tuscan life. A few special recommenations that we would not like to leave unmentioned: - diner at "Le Mossacce", Florence; traditional food for a very good price - for another great food experience "Osteria del Carcere" in San Gimignano would be the best choice - for a cheesy evening at home with a movie you could go to "Antica Pizzicheria Chiantigiana" in Siena for the best cheese and cold cuts selection. Very tasty. this week has really been above our expectations, one again, thank you very much. If you ever visit The Netherlands, please don't hesitate to contact us. Regards.

Thank you for the wonderful vacation home. We travelled all over Tuscany with the trains. This was an excellent place to have our base. The tiramisu was wonderful. Sitting and side in the evening on the deck was the perfect end to each day. The pool was expecially refreshing as it got hotter. Once again THANK YOU! Warm regards.

29 April 2016

Tyler & Alicia Ellis, ,

Hey Francesca, I just wanted to thank you for letting us stay at Il Colle di Sotto in January for our honeymoon! During our trip there, we stayed in Rome, Montelupo, and Venice. Staying at your property in Montelupo Fiorentino was by FAR the peak of our honeymoon. It was absolutely beautiful! We had a terrible experience in Rome, but this has more than made up for it. The scenery/view was amazing, and even the town was so quaint and comfortable! You are certainly living a dream. The olive oil you provided us was and still is incredible... I'm not sure if that was for us to keep, but we took it back to the states with us regardless! It is a miracle that we were able to slip through U.S. customs with it ;). Thank you again for this opportunity. The property and your availability and support alone has clearly defined our vacation together in Italy. I had a lot of trouble planning that trip, and had gotten in touch with several travel agents... but your e-mail to me few months ago regarding transportation information alone had proved to be more useful than anything or anyone else! Sorry it has taken me so long to get around to sending this letter... I've been very busy ever since our return. I have constantly been thinking about this, however; it is important to me to let you know how grateful I am for having been able to meet you and stay there! We were very lucky to have you around. Really! A million thanks, Francesca. As sincere and honest as I have ever been, you have been a blessing. Tyler & Alicia Ellis

Alicia & Tyler Ellis, ,

Thank you for opening up villa il Colle di Sotto to us for our honeymoon. Our stay here was amazing and it was a huge surprise to me and it could not have been better. The views are incredible and it was so nice just being able to relax after our trip in Rome. Montelupo is a beautiful town, the people are great and the property and location is just simply incredible. I'm certain that this place is and will remain the key note in our honeymoon. We're very very very grateful and we would love to come back one day when time allow!

Our experience here was everything we had hoped for and more. Thank you for fullfilling a part of our dream. Barbara (the chef) was wonderful, thank you for arranging for her to come. And of course your mother's tiramisu...was wonderful!!!

Brian & Jonathan Rick & Susan Schroeder, , United States

Francesca, thank you for helping us to have a wonderful vacation. Your home is beautiful, tranquil and conveniently located. It served as base from which we explored Tuscany Umbria. We particularly enjoyed our visits to Orvieto, Montepulciano, Greve in Chianti and Lucca. We also visited San Gimignano on your recommendation and we are glad that we did. We ate a fantastic luch there in a little restaurant set in a superb medioeval setting. Food, oh the food!!! The meal your mother made was excellent, so were the meals in Montelupo Fiorentino at the restaurants you suggested. Our final night we went to Osteria Livornese and ate so much incredible sea food. Francesca, you are a wonderful host! You are hospitable, give good travel advices and were very helpful. Thank you for calling the B&B in Monterosso ;-) With Great Appreciation!!!

Dear Francesca & family, thanks fo putting together this great place for us to visit We enjoyed the villa and all the surronding area. It was a good place to explore Firenze to Roma and places in the middle. We made good use of the corkscrew and all the kitchen. We didn't use the pool much as it was pretty cool even for us Canadians...maybe next time we'll come earlier in summer when the weather is hotter. We appreciated all the food and wine you left us...thanks again!

Charle & Carol Gattuso, Roanoke, United States

Thank you for your warm hospitality during our stay. Our week at Collesotto began with Francesca's friendly smile, a beautiful bowl of fruit and a fine bottle of wine. What a way to start a restfull week at your beautiful place after we spent two weeks touring the Italian country. At mid week the elicious Tiramisu helped to finish off a great dinner at Osteria Livornese Restaurant in town; the food was excellent. Every evening we enjoyed sitting on the patio and enjoying the incredible view. We did not get te chance to enjoy the pool (too cool!) but it too so beautiful to look at. Your villa was very comfortable and provided with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything needed for us to prepare our meals. Francesca, thanks again to you and your family! We hpe to return some day.

Thanks for a wonderful stay at Collesotto! The viewing, the villa, the owners and the surronding area are outstanding! The kids have enjoyed the pool - the grownups the pool side. We have toured Tuscany from Firenze to Livorno, from Greve in Chianti to Vinci. History and wine in a splendid mix. Thanks a lot for having the opportunity to stay here and for the homemade Tiramisu - it was the best! We hope to come back soon!

Dan & Rachel Miller, California, United States

Dearest Francesca, Rachel and I wanted to thank you for a wonderful setting for our return trip to Italy. We were so sorry that we were unable t say goodbye personally, we hope you understand a time restraint. You villa was perfect...for Rachel and I it was just the best possible setting. Even though the trips to Rome, Pisa, Florence and the like area great, we much rather visit the smaller towns. The setting was perfect to relax, actually meet the people of Italy and not a bunch of other tourists. Your villa offers so many wonderful aspects, the setting and views, it is so private and the varied animals playing around were welcoming. Everything was so clean and comfortable. Again our warmest thanks - best to your Mum and Dad. Regards.

22 October 2008

Laura & Dan Theisen, New York, United States

Dear Francesca thank you for a wonderful vacation...Montelupo Fiorentino was everything we imagined and more! The breath-taking views from Collesotto hit the spot after sight seeing tours of Tuscany (Florence, Pisa, Livorno, San Gimignano, Roma, Lucca). The hospitality was better than expected and the sunsets picturesque! We hope to be back to you soon! Thank you again!

22 October 2008

Diane & Ken Marino, St. Catharines, Canada

Totally awesome experience. Grazie un milione! Amazing view, amazing villa - attention to details. Enjoyed the pool - even in October (Canadians eh?!)! Would recommend restaurant in Montelupo, across the bridge, "Osteria del Sole". We liked Pisa, Montalcino, Bago Vignoni and of course Firenze! Thank you for your mid-week surprise - delicious! Our best regards. We hope to come back soon!

22 October 2008

Irina & John Schmottlach, Boston, United States

Dear Francesca & family, thank you for helping make our dream of visiting Tuscany a reality. Collesotto was the perfect place to explore this glorious area. We ventured to Pisa, Siena, the Chianti area and Florence. We just loved coming back and enjoying the pool, the sunsets (magnifico!) and the scenery. The town of Montelupo Fiorentino is also charming - found great little restaurants and the Coop (supermarket) which has a great selection for meals we decided to have in the villa. Signora Mazzoni - thank you so very much (grazie mille!) for the fabulous Tiramisu. We will remember our experience forever - the perfect way to celebrate our 10th anniversary. How fortunate we were to find you and this lovely jewel! We hope it won't be too long until we meet again. Sincerely...

22 October 2008

Absolutley the best views. Franseca was wonderful but was away on her own holiday for most of our stay. The local co-op supermarket had all we needed for general food.

16 August 2008

Simon MacSorley, Bristol, United Kingdom

The villa was exactly as described and was perfect. The family were very friendly and saw to our every need. First class!! Volterra and Certano were simply beatiful if you want to avoid the crowds in Florence and Siena. The villa is in an idyllic location surrounded by olive groves

great location to base tours of Tuscany from. Lucca was our hi-lte - a very beautiful and welcoming city. Definately worth the drive to the Chianti region.
on-site hosts were very accomodating

It is a wonderful villa and the surrounding area was just the right spot for us to venture out from. The view from the villa was outstanding and they have thought of everything we could possibly need. The town also has wonderful restaurants and a great supermarket.

Great location for easy access to places such as Sienna, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano, Val de Col d'Elsa, Montereggioni.
Great facilities at the villa. Close to shops in Montelupo.
