The Toscana Matrimoni farm holiday house is located between Montecatini and Monsummano Terme, more precisely in the hamlet of Montevettolini right at the top of the hill, from which you may admire the breathtaking view on the Tuscan countryside.
The cottage is easy to reach thanks to its very convenient position, not far from the main tourist attractions of Tuscany.
The history of Montevettolini began in the XII century, when the medieval village was founded around the castle that controlled the surroundings.
All these elements, combined with the high quality services, make Toscana Matrimoni the ideal solution to design a truly Tuscan style wedding.
