So it's not the easiest place to get to. Quite a way out of Lucca, you need a rental car. And not too close to any amenities, but that is the absolute beauty of Fattoria Maionchi!
My wife and I and two friends stayed in the Cintello apartment which is a short walk from the main Fattoria building.
In the middle of nowhere among the tuscan hills and vineyards, surrounded by fields and olive groves, peace and quite prevails.
The apartments are fantastic to, with a quant rustic feel that makes you realise why Tuscany has sucha beautiful reputation.
Views past the terricotta coloured old farm buildings, the views into the Tuscan hills and the typical tall trees of italy beg you to relax and unwind - totally.
Maria and her family and staff are lovely. There is a resturant open in the main Fattoria on a Monday evening which you have to go to to enjoy the family atmosphere and get to know them better.
The pool is clean and very much appreciated when lazing in the apartment grounds. With only three apartments in this part of the Fattoria, you have the place and the pool to yourself. Once you actually tear yourself away from the apartment, pool, and compelling scenery, you can take a car into the old town of Lucca, very nice, then traffic a short way to Pisa, very nice, and then travel a little further to the city of Florence, Very very nice.
Tip - Take a bit of time in all three towns and soak up the atmosphere.
To sum the Fattoria Maionchi up in one word - awesome. To some up in more that one word - the best holiday I have ever had!!
Thank you Maria
