“Little corner of Tuscan heaven”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This villa tucked into the vines and olive groves is perfect for a family holiday. The hosts have thought of everything right down to every type of coffee maker imaginable, a great barbeque, plenty of toys for the pool and satnav pre-programmed with key local addresses. The location of the house means you are just the right distance from Lucca to feel that you are off the tourist track but close enough to make the most of this lovely town. Plenty of authentic places to eat locally too - we highly recommend Giomo in the centre of the village. Should you want to eat in, the kitchen/ dining room is equipped with everything you need to rustle up a Tuscan feast.
Only one word of warning, the house wouldn't suit elderly groups or those with babies due to the number of stairs and there only being one bathroom/toilet in the house. And don't hire a really big car as the track up to the house is quite narrow!

“Wonderful villa in excellent location”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

This villa is wonderful and exceeded our expectations both in the views it gave over Lucca and the surrounding hills and in the grandeur of the grounds and furnishings within the villa. The sat nav in the villa with pre-programmed destinations, the laptop and printer in the study and the 2 shady hammocks in the garden are just a few examples of the thoughtfulness and attention to detail which has gone in to this accommodation. We could find nothing which could be improved.
All of our emails to Leandro, the owner, received prompt responses and his written directions to the villa from the airport were so good that we didn’t get lost, even in the dark.
This villa is first class.

“Beautiful villa in the hills”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We visited this villa for a family holiday in June. Driving up the hills to the villa we had the most beautiful views of nearby Lucca.

Arriving at the villa we had a lovely welcome pack with bread, milk etc and some lovey local wines. There was a guest book telling you all about the local area and what there is to do, plus recommendations for local restaurants. There were also walkie talkies (for walking in the hills) and a sat nav with your location in, we thought these were nice little touches.

Inside we found the villa spacious & with good amenities (like a dishwasher)! There is Sky for people who want to watch TV, and and x box & boardgames. The bedrooms are lovely & all 3 have beautiful views of the surrounding area.

My favourite place was the garden which has a patio area, a BBQ, tiered seating further down, a ping pong table & a good sized pool. We especially loved the hammocks later in the day. The garden has lots of fruit trees including, oranges, lemons, olives, plums, apricots to name a few. It was lovely to cook & use fresh ingredients from the garden.

A lot of our time was spent chilling by the pool as it is so peaceful. The villa is situated so that day trips are easily done to places like Pisa & Florence. Lucca is only a 10 minute driveway, the supermarket just 5. There are loads of gorgeous restaurants within easy reach too(in the guest book).

I would definitely recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday. Also if you want to be close enough to explore the area, but your far enough away that you feel like your in your own little world.

“Beautiful Enchanting Views.”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday, the views are spectacular amongst the vineyards and manicured olive groves, we found this place truly enchanting. Thank you also for the attention to detail given from the pre-programmed satellite navigation for the local restaurants and attractions to the welcome pack and bottle of local wine left on our arrival (which was appreciated after a long trip). We very much enjoyed Lucca which was only a short drive away and the Lucca Festival where we were able to get tickets to a Robbie Williams concert which was very exciting. My partner was especially excited by the numerous fruit trees in the garden (oranges, lemons, grape vines, figs, apricots, peaches etc.) and we spent several nights on the terrace eating, drinking and marvelling at the landscape as well as cooling down in the pool (during the hot spell). This is obviously situated in a prominent wine growing area which we look forward to exploring next time. We were very both very sad to leave and look forward to booking again. Sehr Schoene & a Thumbs up!

“Charming house with wonderful views, fully equipped for a fun holiday”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at this lovely Tuscan farmhouse for two weeks mid to late July 2015. We stayed as a family of four – two adults and our two teenage children aged 19 and 16, but the property was well-set up for younger children.

The house was clean and well-equipped with everything needed for a self-catering holiday, including BBQ and electric induction hob (I want one of these now!) We arrived to find a much appreciated welcome pack of wine, bread, butter and milk. It was very hot when we stayed, with a temperature averaging at 37-40 deg C (which we were told is abnormally hot for the time of year) and were pleased to find the house equipped with fans. All the windows are fitted with mosquito screens and shutters, so we were able to keep the house cool and insect-free. The pool is a decent size and when we stayed it was lovely and warm. There is also a ping pong table, which is shielded from the sun. Mostly, however, we just enjoyed laying back and catching up with some reading by the pool.

The town of Lucca is close by and offers both shopping and dining, and we made several day trips there, as well as travelling further afield to visit Florence (90 mins drive) and Pisa (40 mins drive). Two of us also attended a cooking class at http://www.cucina-italiana.com, which is only 30 mins drive from the house. The owner kindly left a sat nav at the property with places of interest/supermarkets/useful car parks programmed into it, which was really useful. There was also a laptop and printer provided to enable guests to book in advance for popular attractions such as the David in Florence and the leaning tower of Pisa, rather than joining the lengthy queues at their booking offices.

We found this rental to be well thought-out and in a lovely part of the world. We had a really relaxing and fun holiday, and would definitely recommend it.
