“No one goes to Tuscany just once”. Welcome to Montecatini Alto, a traditional Tuscan village that is love at first sight. This historic part of Tuscany captures the very best of the distinct Italian experience that you can’t help but return to. As a part of our Premium Collection, we are excited to introduce you to this beautiful part of Tuscany.

Tuscany has acted as an incubator of the arts for centuries. The historic sculptures, unique architecture, antique furniture, and artistic decorations create an authentic Italian Renaissance atmosphere. It is home to some of the most precious artwork in the world and also the birthplace of the Italian language! In fact, Tuscany is known as ‘a nation inside a nation’ due to its unique and charming culture as well as its strong linguistic. The history truly reflects on the architecture which you can experience as you stroll around the beautiful town of Montecatini Alto from the 14th century.

The lands of Tuscany are unmatchable and there are things to do for travellers of all kinds.

Enjoy local wines by your private pool in the villa, cook some dinner in the beautiful kitchen with exposed beams above you, or set a picnic under the trees in your 18,000 sqm grounds that the Tuscan villa in our Premium Collection offers.

On a more adventurous day, you can drive to Pisa in 40-minutes, Lucca in 30-minutes, or Firenze in 1h 30 minutes. You can also travel up to Montecatini Alto with the local funicular “Funicolare di Montecatini” in Italian (children love it!) or head to the thermal hot springs in Grotta Giusti, which only less than a 15-minute drive from your home.
