Villa Deliziosa is located in magnificent spot, in the middle of seven hectares of wood and land cultivated with olive trees, on the most western slopes of Monte Albano. The villa dates back to the second half of the eighteenth century. Originally the complex was made up by two old farmer houses that have been later combined in one unit, still being rather independent one from the other.

The owners have accurately restored the villa with careful attention to the details by using only recycled building materials found in the region. The interiors have also been tastefully furnished with antique furniture and doors, old prints, Persian carpets.

The owners live in a villa nearby which is separated from Villa Deliziosa and has a different entrance. They  will be glad to help in case you need assistance and, at the same time, they will guarantee your privacy during your stay.

Villa Deliziosa is located in a convenient position, in the Valdinievole area, still unaffected by the mass tourism. You will enjoy a relaxing holiday, away from the bustle of the city centres, immersed in the uncontaminated nature which is typical of Tuscany but, at the same time, you will be very close to all the main attractions of this beautiful region.

The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Monsummano Terme

The hamlet of Monsummano Terme has grown around the Sanctuary of Santa Maria della Fontenuova, at the centre of an important road network. The village lies at the foot of Monsummano Alto hill, that overlooks the whole Valdinievole and Fucecchio Marshes.

The foundation of the village was due to the grand duke Ferdinando I de Medici and his entrusted architect. After the prodigious events happened at the end of the XVI century, like the apparition of the Virgin close by a local tabernacle (1602), the grand duke charged the architect Gherardo Mechini with projecting a great sanctuary in honour of the Madonna. The sanctuary was called Fontenuova because of a spring that gushed spontaneously after the miraculous apparition.

In 1775 Pietro Leopoldo set up the Comunità delle Due Terre, linking the territories of Montevettolini, the castle of Monsummano and the main village of Monsummano Terme. The XIX century was a great time for Monsummano, thanks to the presence of two big political and literary personages. The poet Giuseppe Giusti (1809 – 1850), whose home with neoclassical furnishings and decorations, has been recently renovated and turned into a Museum; Ferdinando Martini (1841 – 1928), scholar and politician, whose villa, known as Villa di Renatico, is currently seat of meetings and exhibitions of art.

The Thermal Grottoes have been discovered in the middle of the XIX century. You will find lovely natural caves where to enjoy relaxing and detoxifying steam baths, mud therapies, ozonized baths in thermal water, massages, inhalation treatments and so on.
