Villa Montagna, Your Home in Mugello

In June this year we will celebrate 20 years since Villa Montagna, our family holiday villa for 18 guests, has been welcoming travelers from all over the world. 

The intense restoration works lasted for nearly two years and the result was quite amazing even to our family.

Unbelievable amount of energy and dedication, especially on the part of Maria-Laura, Raffaele’s mother, was invested in redesigning this historical house for cozy family holidays in Mugello, Tuscany. Maria-Laura kept almost every single original stone and piece of wood that was possible, thus creating a charming atmosphere in each room.

The house was heated only with this fireplace. Bread was baked daily in the oven on the left
The old fireplace is still important to all guests, especially in autumn and winter.
The abandoned garden at the back of the house was transformed into…
…large terrace just outside the kitchen, ideal for any meal in good company!

When on holiday in Villa Montagna you do feel sometime like walking back in time. Our family holiday villa keeps a lot of the old Tuscan style of life, while being a comfortable house with modern amenities.

While remodeling the house, more works too place outside and…
… a pool with a view was built where all guests sunbathe and relax

Away from the stressful and demanding city life, our family holiday villa is a small and regenerating oasis. The surrounding nature and the unique geographic setting of the house are probably the most appreciated aspects during everyone’s holiday at our place in Mugello, Tuscany.

Apart from restructuring Villa Montagna and all farmhouses, our family has been working in improving and diversifying the certified organic agricultural production. Extravirgin olive oil, honey, vegetables, fruit trees, truffles are also part of our everyday commitment to countryside life.

Each year Villa Montagna welcomes a few couples (together with their families and friends) who choose the entire estate of Il Poggio alle Ville as a location for their intimate wedding in Tuscany.
