Hello, nice to meet you!
We are an authentic ‘Tuscany D.O.C’ family!
In 2003 Piero and his wife Simona, opened Belmonte Vacanze. Even now, after ten years of hospitality we still strive to be the best and take care of our little corner of paradise. We put our hearts into what we do and we do our best to help you experience a dream holiday. We have guests coming back every year to spend their holiday with us and this makes us so happy! Ours is a real ‘family affair’.
The team in detail!
PIERO: THE BOSS
Iano was the place where as a child (since his father Ermanno took over property in 1960) he spent his Sundays riding horses around the land.After spending a lifetime in the construction industry, in 2000 Piero decided that the family property could be more than just a farm.The work was finally completed in the summer of 2003 with the opening of Belmonte Vacanze. Today Piero deals with the structural side of the business and every year makes improvements, especially in winter. An example?He designed the pool himself! Piero is passionate about dogs.
SIMONA: THE BOSS
If on your arrival you find the room well-ordered with a loving attention to detail, you can thank Simona. She threw herself heart and soul into this adventure in 2003 with Piero and then fell in love with Belmonte Vacanze. She deals with the management of the apartments and can often be seen running from one apartment to another to check that everything is in order. Simona loves to read and cook.
ELISA: THE MANAGER
Originally from Montaione, Elisa came to work with Belmonte Vacanze in 2007 after finishing her languages degree. Since then she has become part of the family! She deals with the management of reservations, reception, translation and other 3000 jobs together with Lauro! If you need something, ask or email Elisa: You will have the solution! Elisa likes shopping and going out with friends.
LAURO: JACK OF ALL TRADES
Son of Piero and Simona, Lauro started working in the family business in 2003 after completing his law degree. In love with the Belmonte Vacanze, he decided that staying with the guests in Tuscany was better than being a lawyer. He deals with everything related to the Internet and the promotion of Belmonte Vacanze on the web and social media. If he is not behind a pc you can find him around the apartments helping to make some repairs with the faithful Stefano or Timmy.
Lauro loves mountain bike and he is the founder of bike project Ridemontaione.com
STEFANO AND TIMMY: THE HANDYMEN
If the lawn is perfectly mowed or in the morning the pool is always in order, the credit goes to Stefano and Timmy. Stefano and Timmy live right here in Iano, 100 m from Belmonte Vacanze. You can find them around the Belmonte Vacanze taking care of the gardening. If you need help in your apartment, they’ ll be right with you.
BEHIND THE SCENES: MAURO
You won’t see him at Belmonte Vacanze, but he works in the administrative headquarters in Fucecchio where he specializes in accounting, administration, taxation and management of the websites together with Lauro. Always swamped with paperwork, he wishes you a happy holiday in Belmonte all the way from Fucecchio!

Following her dad Stefano and granddad Giacomo’s example, Alice grew up around farms and animals and now, as an adult, enjoys being outside surrounded by nature. Her passion for horse riding started and developed thanks to her uncle Valentino with whom, at the age of 8 years old she managed to convince her parents to enrol her at a riding school. Though sensing her mother’s fears and her father’s encouragement, Giulia started successfully competing in 2007. Now she commits her efforts to tuition combining her passion for horses with her fondness for children, and young people with disabilities.
