“Beyond Expectations!”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our stay at Villa Aquilea surpassed our expectations - it was everything we hoped and more. Don't let the relatively modest exterior fool you - this historic villa has been restored with great care to a level that would satisfy the most discerning guest. A few things come to mind: rustic, elegant simplicity but with all modern conveniences; carefully chosen and extremely tasteful classic and antique furniture; ceramic tile floors and beamed ceilings; new custom made doors, windows and screens all around; a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with high end appliances (and two dishwashers); intelligent floor plan with ensuite baths and closets in all bedrooms; hot water and wifi on demand; wonderful gardens and a great pool that you can really swim in; and a magnificent view of the Lucca valley below from almost all angles! Climbing the hill to Villa Aquilea you feel like you are arriving home and you won't want to leave. Our stay was made even better by the personal attention we received from James Edmunds who knows and loves the area and has wonderful stories to tell about local and Italian history and is a wealth of knowledge. He really does love Tuscany and will help you fall in love with it too. We stayed at the villa with an extended family group, lounged around the pool, made day trips to Florence, Lucca, Cinque Terra and other destinations, attended a family reunion in Pisa, hiked around the area including into the quaint village of Aquilea below and the church ruins at the top of the hill; and entertained several groups of friends. Villa Nobile accommodated all our needs and visitors and made every day a pleasure. My brother is a home renovater who paid the house a very high compliment when he said: "I can't think of a thing I would change".
