The villa was in a beautiful location with a swimming pool and tennis court. It was clean and spacious, but unfortunately the beds were very hard and uncomfortable. There wasn’t any WiFi or internet and the host said this would be added, but this didn’t happen. Although the stay was for 5 nights I had to use my own data, which cost me more 🙁 Another disappointing thing was they only had German tv channels. The road sign for the villa was not easy to see by the road side. It is very old, small and difficult to read and needs updating and making bigger. I would go again if these problems were resolved.
Fabulous rustic Italian accommodation set in the Tuscany countryside with pool area grounds and tennis courts. The sound of the crickets keep you company in the evenings! The perfect location for relaxing and within Eleasy distance to Florence, Lucca and Pisa. Only 20 minute walk to nearest ice cream !!
We have vacationed in Corte Medicino 13 times in the past 13 years. Guess where we will spend another week of our vacation in 2014? The first year we chose this place purely on its geographical merit. We wanted to visit Tuscany and chose a place exactly in the middle, between Florence, Pizza, Lucca, Monticatini Terme , Forte de Marmi, Cinque Terre and not too far from Siena. Corte Medicino seemed the ideal place to stay and visit all these places without spending the excursion in the car. It also offered the tranquility and remoteness we enjoy during our stay. Basically it is a dwelling, located on a quaint farm road between Altopacio and Orentano. What is so special? it consists of only 3 lodgings, separated by beautiful wild gardens, sharing with one big swimming pool, jacuzzi, tennis court, barbecue are and….all around is forest. The houses are very clean, stylish, large and comfortable rooms. We've grown to love this place like a second home. Altopascio is a small town which offers several good restaurants, same as Orentano, also many close by villages do that. its not Italy it is more EATaly ! The Pizza places in Orentano is excellent, while the gelato place in Altopascio by far the best we've ever had! The owners/managers have become friends and from day 1 we appreciated their advice and help as as their concern for the guests comfort. My advice, go there and you won't regret it!…
In un parco di tre ettari, piscina su tre livelli, campo di tennis, casa stupendamente ristrutturata in stile vecchia lucca su pre esistenze del 700. Cura dei dettagli e buon livello delle attrezzature. Una vacanza eccellente a pochi chilom. Da lucca, pisa e firenze.
