at. As one of the experiences of this holiday we want our guests to explore the local cuisine. We buy our food fresh and local. All your and your babies meals are included in the price whether we eat in or out. Here in the villa we have our private chef but we also enjoy lunch out in local winery and also in local family owned restaurant. Italian food is well known all around the world and we are confident to say it is the one of the most popular. Who doesn’t like to indulge in delicious pasta plate or gelato?
There are 20 regions in Italy and every one of them have their typical dishes and signature foods. Big part of Tuscan cuisine are cheese and meats, all kinds of them. Salami and prosciutto, pecorino and stracchino…and you almost have learned Italian! And of course all the fresh olive oil and wine produced locally. Make sure you participate in our cooking class where real Italian mamma will teach us to make various pasta dishes, tiramisu and other classics so you can continue in your own kitchen and surprise your loved ones at home. Don’t forget the wine, it’s also included. There is no denial, some days it’s the juice that keeps us going. Imagine evening: you and other moms sharing your baby stories by glass or two. And we know that can go on for a while…
Don’t be confused, we do yoga here but we also like to enjoy ourselves and eat. At the end we are in Italy! We believe that everything needs to be in balance. The key is good ingredients. Another truth is Italian cuisine tastes as good with or without meat and we are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements and if you have any allergies please let us know on the booking form.

tay in our serene location of Villa Montignoso. With around 200 days of sunshine a year it makes Tuscany a very desirable holiday location. In villa and country house we have different room types for different budgets. Treat yourself with staying in master suite, the room is super spacious with the large marble bathroom or one of our double rooms with private bathroom. There are also two separate double bedrooms with one shared bathroom for more budget option. All bedrooms are fully equipped with everything you and your baby need. In our bathrooms we include Italian ECO cosmetic brand “l’Erbolario” products for moms and locally made ECO bath care products “Dolci Coccole Bio” for your baby. We can also include a kettle for boiling water in you room if your baby is bottle fed. There are also diapers, wet wipes, change mats included for your baby in the room so you can travel light. We do have first Aid Kit here in the villa with some baby paracetamol, band aides and nappy cream, but we also suggest you to take with you all medication you might need for your baby. The closest Town Center and pharmacy is 10 km away. There are four lounge areas with plenty of playing space, dining room, large kitchen and terrace with dining table outside and garden in the front. This is where we spend most of the time. The pool is guarded by fence so the little ones can’t wonder in there by themselves and is surrounded by plenty of sun beds, towels and umbrellas. We have also free laundry facility here, so you don’t run short on little explorers clothes. Ahh..we can’t wait to show you “la dolce vita”!
ou! At the end of the day it all comes down to you. Yes, you are mother and wife at home but you are also woman and you need to feel like one. It’s hard, I know. Specially if you are first time mom. There are days when you realize it’s already afternoon but you are still in you pajamas and how we are waiting for our husbands day off to have a little time for ourselves. Here we always have baby sitting available during all morning activities, so you can do yoga, go for morning swim, have breakfast or just have a shower without someone knocking on a shower door. We offer also babysitting while you are getting your treatment or massage you choose, take part in painting session and paint yourself a memory picture of signature Tuscan hills. Painting have been proven to be very therapeutic and healing. We also invite you to try mandala coloring in villa, we have plenty of books and some moms swear by this method. It is alternative to meditation just more creative. Tuscany is also know as place with many natural hot springs, we don’t recommend it for small babies, but for moms the sulfurous water has been proven to be beneficial and has many health benefits.We can always plan the trip to hot springs accordingly to each mothers situation. There is baby sitting available, and if any of staff members are free, we will always gladly look after your baby anytime and send you off to relax or take advantage of our face mask and nail polish bar. I admire Italian women, they always look so good and effortless. In Italian family a woman is the center and everybody looks up to her. She is the rock of the family. But to take care of everybody else, firstly she needs to take care of herself.
