The Tuscany region
Montecatini is a small village with medieval origins located in the centre of the Tuscan region, situated very close to the antique Etruscan town of Volterra. The beaches are a 35 minute drive away and the most important cities of artistic interest are a one hour drive away (Siena, Pisa, Florenze, Lucca).
Montecatini is a perfect place to relax, enjoy the beauty, eat marvellous food and drink good wines. But there are many possibilities also for a more active kind of vacation.
During limpid and crisp days, from the higher windows of theTower, you can see a small patch of sea and the Isle of Elba. The closest beach, known as Cecina, is a 35 minute drive away. The coast here is quite vast and it possible to find fully equipped beaches towards the North; Marina di Cecina, Gorette and Mazzanta. While moving south from these areas you can find long stretches of sandy beaches, without the usual European style facilities but with great pinewood areas located opposite the water.
Montecatini Val di Cecina
Volterra, which is 15 km from Montecatini, is a very magical place: its elevation, allows a panoramic view in all directions, the yellow, soft earth, the shells imbedded in the road, a memory from its being a seabed, the splendid piazza, are only a few of the things to see during your visit to this sleepy jewel.
Montecatini is surrounded by many beautiful forest areas perfect for taking long walks, for exploring and for mushroom and asparagus picking. From Montecatini's piazza, you can walk towards the Monte alla Croce ( Mount to the Cross), which dominates the town.
You can find all you may need at Montecatini; a baker who makes some of the most famous bread and focaccia( white pizza bread) of the area, a clothes shop which attracts buyers from all over Tuscany for its high quality and low pricing policies, two coffee bars and a hardware store. All of these places are located in the central piazza, where you will also find at reasonable prices, a good quality restaurant and pizzeria. Not too far away from the mine area you can find two other restaurants. We highly recommend two exceptionally good restaurants “Il Frantoio” at Montescudaio, the “Trattoria Albana” of Mazzolla and the “Le Giunche” inn, between Casino di Terra and Casale Marittimo.

“Unique and awesome experience!”
The Torre di Belforti is a very unique and special holiday rental in a less traveled, quiet and beautiful part of Tuscany. The Belforti Tower stands high over an authentic medieval castle complex where real people live a very simple Tuscan lifestyle. You will be transported back to the 14th century and experience living like a feudal ruler high up in the tower protecting the people below, yet still so much a part of this ancient community. The tower is perfectly restored to original design, very quiet, clean and beautiful. The kitchen and bedrooms are large and private. Each level of the tower is separated by ancient stairways. The bathrooms are lined in a soft dark luxurious stone, and the kitchen is fit with a working fireplace. There is a lookout on the roof for watching the clear Tuscan sky with a spectacular view of the surrounding 'kingdom' below. A pleasant olive grove surrounds the tower where you can rest and have quiet conversation. We very much enjoyed our stay here. The people of Montecatini are very welcoming! The piazza restaurant has exceptional cuisine. You can sit and converse the night away! The cafe/bar is an easy going place to chat with new friends. We could have stayed here a month making new friends and resting up from sightseeing Italy!! A great stay for writers and dreamers where time is yours forever! The best part of all is Luca, the owner. He is the most graceous and generous person. He will delight your soul. To know Luca is to find the true meaning and spirit of Italy. Come and meet him, and you will fall in love with him!
“Lovely Place to Stay”
The Belforti Tower is a beautiful place to stay, it feels like being in one's own fairy tale. The tower is surrounded by olive and fruit trees and sits in the midst of a charming village. The owner is extremely kind and useful, he went above and beyond in making sure we enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend this place as a wonderfully relaxing vacation and also a great way to have a more authentic experience in Italy.
