A Unique Experience.
Dating back to the Second Half of the 19th Century, Villa la Moresca Relais de Charme - B&B is located at the southern end of the fortified village of Montecatini Alto, in a dominant position over much of Tuscany. The Borgo boasts some enchanting corners such as the Medieval Fortress, the ancient Clock Tower, the Museum of Santa Barbara and ‘La Piazzetta’ (the Montecatini living room) with some of the most renowned restaurants and cafes in the area.
Built and belonged to Pietro Grocco, renowned doctor and promoter of Montecatini thermalism, it has hosted, over the course of over twenty years, among others, the composer Giuseppe Verdi (of which Pietro Grocco was personal doctor) and illustrious personalities from the world of politics, of culture, of music. A small marble plaque placed on the road leading to the main entrance of the Villa recalls the presence of Maestro Giuseppe Verdi who, looking out from the windows of the house, used to exclaim: "Here are the most splendid views I've ever seen!".
The Villa is immersed in a lush garden, between the calm and the cool of centuries-old plants, where guests can relax, make a conversation, paint or read a book, entertaining themselves on the two large terraces, surrounded by ancient roses and under centuries-old California cedars, admiring the panorama that sweeps across five Tuscan provinces: Lucca, Pistoia, Livorno, Pisa, Florence.
La Moresca has large frescoed rooms, where guests can stay, drink a glass of wine, rest, listen to classical music records from the Villa's collection. A historic library with many volumes is available for consultation. From the splendid panoramic garden, through a suggestive gallery carved into the rock, you can access the Relax Area and the swimming pool with hydromassage.
The Rooms and Suites, originally diversified from each other by unique details, finely furnished in Art Nouveau style, are all equipped with bathroom and air conditioning.
Villa la Moresca B&B is a Relais de Charme only for adults. Your small pets are welcome.
