The space

The house is part of the Medieval walls which once surrounded the city of Soliera: it's the last tower, overloooking the valley and the Alps, and it allows you to have privacy and quiet, with a stunning view over the mountains and the river. On ground floor the large dining room has a old walnut table for 10, large comfy sofas and armchairs, TV, all facilities, kitchen, laundry. Up a especially designed wooden winding staircase you reach the first suite, with 2 double bedrooms, with shared ensuite bathroom with whirlpool shower and a small balcony (this is a perfect family room, or a kid's room!), up on first floor a double bedroom with en suite bathroom with whirlpool shower, with a stunning view over the mountains and the valley. The large master double bedroom (30 sq mt) also has en suite bathroom. A further suite (entrance from the garden), with a double bedroom and bath, small living space is at guests disposal incase of larger groups (more than 8 guests and with extra charge). All details are studied to give you maximum comfort. Furniture and finishings are top quality, we used local materials & traditional finishings to let you live a true Tuscany experience.
The porch in front of the house is shady and fresh, the garden is sunny with trees and plenty of chairs and deck chairs to eat outside, a large gazebo with sofas and deckchairs, the pool is overlooking the valley and the BBQ is there at your disposal for great warm summer evening parties!
Private parking for up to 3 cars inside the property, but there is also a parking place in front of us, at the entrance of the village.
From here the sandy beaches of Versilia are less than 30 minutes away, Le Cinque Terre at 30 minutes, Lucca, PIsa, Viareggio, Carrara marble quarries: all are interesting day trips. But also the medieval town of Fivizzano, or the many little villages al around us are worth a visit!

Torre de Medici is exactly as beautiful as in the pictures. The House was renovated with love and care. The owner has an Appartement with separate entrance in the House but you always have the feeling to be alone. Everything was perfect and we'd happily come back.

The house was wonderful, and provided everything we needed. The pool was great, with a fantastic view of the surrounding countryside. Fivizzano was a lovely town with great restaurants, and Francesca gave us good tips of where to go. The nearest beach was about 30min drive away, but easily accessible. All in all it was a great vacation!

We had a great time at Torre de Medici. Francesca was a lovely host and a pleasure to deal with in making the booking. The house was great and catered for a group of six of us well. The pool, barbecue and lounge area in the garden was social and nice and private. The pool and house lighting made for a great environment to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening after a busy day sight seeing. The inside of the house was lovely and historic. The kitchen and lounge were nice and large and due to the thick old stone walls we didn't feel disturbed with Francesca's house that sits on top. Another factor this had was that the house was nice and cool, great for a hot day (maybe not so if it's a cooler summers day). The rooms were all spacious and had lovely bathrooms. The spiral staircase is fairly steep and thin, not that this was an issue for us but worth noting if you had any issues. As for the area there isn't much to say other than it is beautiful. The hills that the house sits at the foot of are stunning. The motorway junction at Aulla is easy to get to. We did find that we were about an hour away from most things we wanted to do.....but that was fine and it felt like a great place to be driving to and from. If you book this place then sure you will have a lovely time as we did.

The house is stunning...Francesca has done an incredible restoration of the old building with a blend of modern and traditional interiors. The view from the house is beautiful as well, with clear sight of the mountains and overlooking the surrounding area. The swimming pool is also very nice and does not need chlorine to stay clean which is great. We only had one problem with the place which was that we did not have a proper water supply for the first couple of days. Francesca said this was a problem for the whole town, but I would definitely check with him that this is fixed before you book. The local village does not have much so we found we drove a lot to go to restaurants but this was fine for us. Francesca is a great host who was happy to help.

When we arrived at Torre de Medici we were blown away by the beauty of the house, it's surrounding location and the quaint town it was situated in. Francesco our host was very welcoming and showed us around his beautiful historic home with great pride. He was able to provide us with a few local suggestions for dinner and even invited us to a local event at the enoteca or wine bar in town where we got to mingle with some locals. We stayed in the villa for four nights and enjoyed all its facilities including the fabulous pool area, breakfast in the Tuscan sunshine on the front verandah and easy access to Cinque Terre. One night we were treated with a generous traditional antipasto platter by our host who even took into consideration our vegetarian friend! Bellissimo! Can't recommend it enough for an authentic Tuscan experience through air BnB.

We were two families staying in the villa, in total 5 children aged 5 to 13 years. The house is beautiful, well equipped and the pool was really used. We stayed 1 week and visited a wineyard in the close surroundings and also managed to visit Fivizzano, Pisa, Lucca and cinque terre as well as just relaxing by the pool with the stunning view a couple of days. Definitely recommended.

Wir hatten eine wirklich wunderbare Zeit in Soliera. Die Zimmer sind grosszügig - alles sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Bäder sind wunderbar renoviert - einzig ein bisschen mehr Stauraum für Kleidung und Badezimmerartikel wäre ideal. Für Familien mit kleinen Kindern haben wir noch zwei kurze Anmerkungen: • das Babyphone (in unserem Fall waren es 4 Stück, verschiedenster Marken) funktioniert schlecht - denke das liegt wohl an den dicken Mauern. • ...und es gibt in fast allen Zimmern und auf der Terrasse ein-zwei-drei Stufen, was bei den kleinsten immer ein wachsames Auge bedeutet. Francesco war sehr hilfsbereit und bei allen Fragen und Wünschen sofort erreichbar. Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit! Wir kommen gerne wieder!

My husband and I are both in our 50s, both love nature, walking, knowing new persons and places. We live in this unspoiled corner of Tuscany, still not discovered by mass tourism, since 2010. The place is great and relaxing, but it is still well connected with the rest of the world: we love to travel and remain in touch with our friends all around the world.
