Perks for the Parents

This apartment, in a former 18th century police station, is set in gorgeous Tuscan countryside with 2 pools. It sleeps up to 6. The complex, named Borgo La Casaccia, is surrounded by a spacious Mediterranean garden with olive trees, rosemary and mimosa. There is plenty of opportunity for family fun at the pool that has stunning views of rolling hills. Meanwhile, local life in the historic hamlet of Montaione is 2kms away, where you’ll find shops, cafes and local festivals. Private cooking lessons with a chef to learn the local cuisine can be arranged as can weekly wine lessons in the on-site taverna.

Why Kids Love it

The 2 swimming pools should keep kids of all ages happy. The larger, deeper one is appropriate for older children, and the smaller one has a shallow area, perfect for babies and toddlers. The pools are on 2 levels with a panoramic view of the valley. There’s also a shared garden with table tennis, a volleyball net and a playground with a slide and playhouses. Bicycles are available to rent from a nearby shop that will deliver and pick up. The apartments are mostly occupied by families so there is a great opportunity to make new friends. Restaurants are family-friendly in general here and taking kids out to dinner is not a problem.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights and 7 nights in from June 22 to August 31. The larger pool is fenced and but the smaller one is partially fenced. Active toddlers will require supervision here and around the steps and terraces surrounding the pool. The apartment is on the 2nd floor and the entrance is accessed via stairs. There are no internal stairs in the apartment itself. A high chair and baby bath tub are available on request, there are only showers in the bathrooms. Other amenities include an American coffee machine, a microwave and Wi-fi. A car is essential to make the most of the area. For day trips, Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca are all under 1.5 hours away.

About the Location

Borgo La Casaccia in the countryside, 5 minutes’ drive from the picturesque hamlet of Montaione. The location is quiet and surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, while being within walking distance of cafes and restaurants. Montaione is off the tourist circuit but is becoming more widely known for its beauty – it’s perched on a hillside surrounded by forests and accessed only by mountain roads. The rustic and atmospheric restaurant of Casa Masi is a 7 minute drive out of town, while the Gambassi Terme spa is less than 15 minutes away. Other must-sees are the medieval town of San Gimignano and Volterra (30 to 40 minutes by car). The closest airports are in Florence and Pisa (both 1 hour away).

Style Notes

The apartment is typically Tuscan style with dark furniture and terracotta floors. Echoes of its history remain with wooden beams and stone archways – the building was renovated in 2011 to form a complex of 12 apartments. Large windows look on to the swimming pools and the garden. Whitewashed walls and simple furniture lend a relaxed air to this unpretentious Tuscan idyll. We love the large gardens for getting lost in a book, the swimming pools that accommodate everyone from baby to adult, and the stunning views over the Elsa River valley.
