“Easter and Camelia festival”
Reviewed 16 May 2018 for a stay in March 2018

It was the second time we spend a week in Dimora delle camelie in Sant' Andrea di Compito, over easter. The house corresponds with the pictures. It is a beautifully restored old building. 6 bedrooms with their own bathrooms. We rented the whole house for a group of 14. The large kitchen and dining area are perfect for family meetings.
The village is situated on a hill just outside Lucca and Pisa. About half an hour by car to those destinations. Due to the location you really have the impression to be in the middle of nowhere, it is very calm and green, while in reality you can easily reach Firenze, Volterra, Sienna, etc for daytrips.
While we were there over easter, the camelia's were flowering. This is very beautiful, the village is known for it. Despite the "Camelia festival", it was nicely calm in the village. There were a bit more visitors than usual, but they were not allowed to enter the village by car. We got a special authorisation from via the owner, so we could drive until the house. Very nice.
If there is one a little critic, and I only mention to be honest because it was not really a problem, is that the house is a solid stone construction which needs some time to heat up (in depth) and dry in the beginning of the season. I believe we were the first visitors of the year, and although the owner had put the heating on before our arrival, and it was not cold, it felt a bit damp in some places, mainly the first days. The walls are huge (half a meter or so), impossible to heat that up in a couple of days after the winter.
This is the consequence of staying in of authentic old building with thick stone walls, there are no miracles about this, and in the summer it will probably provide a cool advantage.
Overall we were all 14 very happy on both occasions, a very nice house in a beautiful village, nicely located and for a correct price: we might come back for a third time.

The house was much more than expected and was a truly wonderful spot for a holiday . The owner, Stefanos ,couldn´t have been more pleasant and helpful .It is ideally situated to travel around the more famous parts of Tuscany ,Florence ,San Gimignano etc but also provides the perfect base to come back to away from all the noise and crowds . A highly recommendable place .
