The Experience

Outside your window, swallows dart to and fro. You can see the ‘rondini’ indoors too, captured in beautiful 18th-century frescoes. Fulvia and Carlo’s home is in tiny Colle di Buggiao, a hilltop paradise with vast views.

Across the cobbled street is their secret garden. At breakfast time its tables are decked in silver and porcelain, for Tuscan breads, ricotta cheeses and delicious homemade jams. Bask in the sweet shade of the pergolas, or stroll to the small square for a jolly lunch at Antico Colle – the village restaurant. Treat yourself to Valentino’s in Malocchio (7km), a joyful Italian trattoria. Don’t miss the great steam baths at Grotta Giusti, Monsummano (10km), or the treasures of Lucca(30km).

Return to simple spotless bedrooms dotted with antiques. Wake to views across Montecatini to distant blue hills.

The neighbourhood

In contrast to buzzing Montecatini below (6km), this 13th-century village, tiny, charming and car-free, has one restaurant and one bar. Both are on the church square, the happy hub of the village. From almost every viewpoint you can see similar villages perched on hilltops, surrounded by sloping fields and olive groves. Follow walking trails straight from the house.


Fulvia Musso

Fulvia exudes calm and immediately makes you feel at home. Husband Carlo, an architect, is equally delightful, and together they have restored the house to its original splendour. Their son Federico, a graduate of the hotel school in Montecatini, works abroad, but when he's back home, he too helps with the B&B.
