A cozy retreat
Back in Canada and looking over our snow covered yard, it is hard to believe that, just a little more than a week ago, we were enjoying the lovely views from Massimo's terrace. The house is charming and very well maintained. It is outfitted with all you could need for an extended stay. Massimo met us at the Lucca McDonald's as planned and showed us the way, which was greatly appreciated as navigating Italian roads for the first time, even with a GPS, proved a little hair raising! Awaiting us at the house was a beautiful welcome basket of local bread, wine, pasta and oil from Massimo's olive grove - what a treat! The bedrooms looked out over a gorgeous valley and, at night, the lights of Lucca twinkled in the distance. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds, very comfortable. As the weather was getting chilly at night, we used the fireplace and the furnace for a small extra charge, but, given the low rental rate, this was not a problem at all - still great value. The location proved ideal for exploring Lucca, Pisa, and Barga. We visited local wineries and took a cooking class in the area - all great fun. Thanks, Massimo, for your tremendous hospitality and for sharing your wonderful property with us.
