Heaven in Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I have always wanted to visit Tuscany and so when I was trawling the internet one day and happened across the ‘Olive Tree suites’ a few enquiries were made to Alberto (the owner) and the ‘Honey suite’ was booked. Upon our arrival we were not disappointed. Set high up in the Montabalano hills the views were spectacular.
Our accommodation was great and came with a complimentary bowl of fruit, two bottles of wine and a bottle of olive oil – all home produced. We enjoyed a couple of days relaxing by the pool and the views of the countryside from the Jacuzzi were fantastic. We had hired a car for the week and visit to Florence and Lucca for the day were next on the list. The surrounding villages were within easy reach by bicycle (provided by Alberto) or car. We visited Porciano, San Baronto, Lamporecchio and Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo. We enjoyed relaxing evenings cooking , sometimes using the BBQ and sitting on the large terrace until the early hours. We visited the local restaurant, about 10 minutes walk away, and tried the fillet steak, which was superb. On our last day Alberto and Natalia invited us to a evening party by the pool which had a live blues band for entertainment – what a great way to finish the holiday. Great weather, super location and lovely accommodation made this one of the best holidays we have been on. Thanks once again to Alberto and Natalia for making our stay so enjoyable. If we had to rate this vacation out of ten we would give it an eleven!

All the best we expected in a Tuscany Country Vill

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my family stayed there last October, just in time for picking olives from thousands of wonderful trees in the property of Alberto and Natalie.
The villa is quite near the sights in Florence, just some miles away, and Alberto was so kind to drive us to the railway station in Empoli. The property is on a hill and we had an astonishing view onto the surrounding areas and villages; the apartment (romantica suite) is large, very quiet, with bathrooms both en suite and private outside the room; there is a fully furnished kitchen and a spacious living room. There was plenty of hot water and in the bedrooms there are coffe/tea facilities and a kettle (it was perfect to prepare a late Italian espresso and a tea!). During the day Alberto prepared a gorgeous barbecue with Fiorentinas steak and Italian sausages (never had better, before!) and the olive oil was really good, I tasted it with the local bread and cannot stop to eat it! I warmly recommend this property and want to thank Alberto and Natalie (and the little Andrew) od their hospitality and kindness.

Fantastic destination

  • 5 out of 5
In May 2012 we had a wonderful 2-week-stay at the Honey Suite. The booking process and communication with the owners Natalia and Alberto was really excellent – very quick response time and very competent answers on all our questions.

Alberto welcomed us very warmly when we “climbed” up with our car to the very nice agritourismo for the first time. Our first impression: wow, what a nice place and what a great view. From Honey Suite, you enjoy a fantastic view over most of Tuscany. We even got two bottles of homemade wine and a bottle of homemade olive oil and a huge plate of fresh fruits. The apartment is lovely equipped with all equipment needed. If you need anything else or more, you can always contact Natalia and Alberto and be sure you will be welcome and get it immediately. Very comfortable is the dish washer and the washing machine you are allowed to use.

Very comfortable was the visit of the cleaning lady after our first week. The suite was cleaned and we got new towels and sheets and everything. We had already been to a lot of apartments yet, but such a service we never had before.

What else to say? Description and pictures of the property on the web site fit perfect to reality. We enjoyed a really fantastic holiday, we visited a lot of sights in Tuscany and coming home after a day with a lot of new impressions it is fantastic to enjoy the sunrise in the jacuzzi. Pool and barbecue place are very nice and we can definitely recommend having a day at the pool.

Dear Natalia and Alberto, thanks a lot for your excellent service and being such good hosts. We will definitely return and looking forward to our next visit. All the best for you

Olive Tree suites is located on the Montalbano hills surrounded by 800 mature olive trees. The nearest village is Porciano and can be reached with a short walk or by mountain bike. It has a grocery shop and a bar, a pizzeria and a good country restaurant, and several ancient buildings, towers and churches. Always walking or by mountain bike you can reach Anchiano, where you can visit Leonardo da Vinci's home, the old town of Vinci, the hamlet of San Baronto, the town of Lamporecchio and the beautiful Villa Rospigliosi, built in 1667 by pope Clement IX. A short drive away, less than 12 miles, you can reach the spa town of Montecatini Terme, the historic town of Pistoia, and the market town of Empoli, the main Italian place for clothing. Less than 30 miles away you can reach most of Tuscany, including Florence, and the historic towns of Pisa and Lucca, and even Collodi, the home town of Pinocchio! Popular seaside resorts, such as Tirrenia and Viareggio, are less than one hour away.

Other Activities: wine tasting, climbing.

Golf: The Montecatini Golf Course, located in Monsummano, 6 km from Olive Tree Suites, is on beutifully landscaped hilly grounds with wonderful views all way round. 18 holes, and there is a spa, swimming pool, club hotel and restaurant. The restaurant uses mainly local fresh produce and has a new menu everyday. Everything is so tasty and delicious, and you will not believe how reasonable it is to have a meal in this wonderful relaxing place!
