Welcome to Tuscany stop which holds the key to “MONTECASTELLO” A Medieval dwelling for all seasons’. One of Italy’s best kept secrets is Lunigiana.

Stretching beyond the soaring Apuan Alps and skirted by the Apennine Mountains to the Mediterranean Sea is a beautiful part of north west Tuscany known as Lunigiana.

This vibrant green land is steeped in history boasting more than one hundred castles and four distinctive seasons.

Montecastello is a perfect setting  ‘A Place for all Seasons’  ideally located for the mountains and the Mediterranean throughout the year.

Walk through the 17th century arched doorway into the spacious Drawing Room. Comfortable interiors compliment the Tuscan style chestnut beamed ceiling and traditional terracotta tiling with stone fireplace. A small library of books/dvd/cd’s nestle with music/dvd system for modern day comforts.

The Drawing Room leads into the dining room with banqueting table and chairs seating 10. An ornate ceramic wood burning stove sits against the medieval stone wall which gives warmth and atmosphere, a magical venue for Christmas and New Year after a day on the local ski slopes.

Enter the ‘Tuscan Style Kitchen’, at the base of the tower, equipped with hob/oven/fridge/freezer and most cooking pans/utensils. For the ‘domestic goddess’ washing machine, iron and ironing board are also available.

We are happy to provide the basic kitchen larder and cleaning detergents, however we would ask clients to replace once empty. Adjacent to the kitchen is a quaint breakfast room with credenza accommodating cutlery and tableware.

Step through an arched vestibule and onto the spacious covered terrace. The terrace offers relaxing and comfortable seating to view the stunning scenery. The terrace also overlooks the swimming pool and natural woodland, ideal area for the sultry summer evening soiree’s.

The four bedrooms, en-suite supplied with fresh linen and one set of towels per person. The bedrooms are individually styled having lush Italian bedlinen and creature comforts of bathrobes and hairdryers, each room offering wonderful mountain views.

With king size antique iron bed, chestnut beams with ceiling fan and patio doors to small terrace with views of Montagna Bocco. A large en-suite bathroom with bath and shower.

What our guests have to say about Tuscany Stop Montecastello

“If you want to relax, to be in the middle of nature, to wake up with the only sound of birds and the town church’s bells this definitely is the place! We spent 2 amazing weeks in beautiful Montecastello, a little private castle in Tuscany! Everything was just perfect from beginning to end.”


“Montecastello is the most wonderful place to stay with family or friends. It is beautifully positioned in wonderful mountainous countryside for fabulous walks and amazing views yet within easy reach of shopping facilities for supplies, drinks and eating out. The villa is beautifully laid out, decorated and furnished – extremely comfortable with everything you need.”


“A big thank you for all your help & letting us stay in this gorgeous castle. Awesome place & loved every minute if it.”


“Thank you for sharing your little paradise with us. We have had a fabulous time with a mixture of relaxation and exploration. Montecastello was everything we hoped it would be and more! The recommendations were spot on – La Torre was a wonderful experience. The boat trip was a day we will remember for the rest of our lives.”


“Thank you for a wonderful stay at Montecastello. Nothing was too much trouble for Martin & Ally when we sought advice on several topics. The in house dining was terrific as was our holiday.”


“This has been a fabulous family holiday in Montecastello, a very special place. We have enjoyed every moment and especially our Italian olives cooked for us with Lucianna, our chef. The ambience is very special and just what was needed. Martin and Ally have made our stay very special and have been really helpful. I feel that we have made some great friends. We hope to come back again.”


“Thank you so much for leaving us in your amazing house. We had the best of times and will love to come back someday soon to your little Paradise. Captain Martin: Thanks for the ride in the boat, it was truly the highlight of our holiday!”


“Thank you for the wonderful, relaxed and hot wee in your little paradise! Every day we found new charming little details in and outside of Montecastello! It was an honour for us to be the first Austrians at your castle!”


“Martin and Ally were more than terrific hosts, providing lots of information and guidance when needed. The house and grounds are just magical, beautifully relaxing and peaceful, but also close enough to the coast and to Lucca, Pisa and La Spezia… and of course, the day on the boat was wonderful. We hope very much to be back soon!”


“One evening Ally with a local chef cooked and served us a magnificent meal, in fact it was more like a banquet – scrumptious! We had a great day out with Martin on a boat trip around the Gulf of Poets, which we all enjoyed tremendously. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Ally & Martin, who were always on hand to answer questions and offer advise. We were a party of 7 adults and would have no hesitation in recommending Montecastello.”


“Montecastello is a lovingly renovated castle. Martin and Ally’s attention to detail has kept the character from an Italian idle with all the convenience of a modern villa. Couldn’t keep the children out of the pool, they would have given a 10 stars out of 5! As adults we loved the garden room, alfresco dinning and grounds to wander around in. The property is well maintained, clean and Ally and Martins, local knowledge and advise was invaluable. We stayed a week which didn’t do all the local area justice, we hope to be back again.”


“It was such a treat to stay at the ‘Castello!’ It’s so beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout – such comfy beds and loved the Italian linen sheets! It really was everything we hoped for and the setting is truly idyllic- peace and tranquility pervade.”
