A Tuscan Treat

  • 4 out of 5
The villa is well maintained, very clean, well equipped, large kitchen and good sized bedrooms, pretty courtyard, real Tuscan character ... very comfortable and relaxing. An accurate listing, well located, it is close to other buildings, though not noisy. The river is a lullaby, and there is a spring on the opposite side where you can fill bottles like the locals ... just cross the foot bridge in the park behind to the wondrous Villa Fiori next door.
A short drive to Lucca, try to be there for the Lucca antique market (3rd Sunday of the month) ... it's amazing. Drives to other pretty villages like the sleepy mountain top Trassilico are great, and afford incredible views. The whole area is truly beautiful.
This villa is a treat and I would certainly like to have a return indulgence.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely villa, warm informative welcome. Fantastic standard and very nicely decked out. We didn't want for anything and the sound of the river helps you to sleep! Love the cooker and all the utensils! plenty of character and room for all of us! The only down side was we didnt have long enough! While we were there our son asked his girl friend to marry him on the top of the Ponte Di Maddalena! we were all delighted and had a great time thanks from all of us you have a great place!

Delightful villa, wonderful location.

  • 4 out of 5
Our stay here was like living the Tuscan dream. The house is very beautiful with a gorgeous terrace - perfect for lazing in the sun by day, and for long leisurely dinners in the evening. The kitchen is so well equipped it tempts you to cook, and the dishwasher is a real bonus. Comfort, good taste and a flair for interior decoration are the hallmarks of this property. The excellent pizza restaurant on the bridge, along with a handful of other restaurants and bars, was just five minutes walk away. The arrangements for renting the property, directions, and arrival went like clockwork, while a couple of minor domestic glitches were sorted out with impressive speed - eg. a plumber came out on a Saturday evening! We enjoyed our stay here so much that we would love to come back - the whole area is outstandingly beautiful.

The Perfect Tuscan Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Serraglio is understated in the listings. My wife and I stayed there for a week in May 2012 and we were overjoyed with the house and the area of Bagni Di Lucca. I would recommend Villa Serraglio to friends and family without any hesitation. The villa can accommodate 6 adults comfortably - the rooms are larger than than the images portray. We found the property perfectly clean and well maintained. The owner has thought of everything - the villa is fully equipped with every type of convenience you could ever wish. My most favourite was the coffee machine - it produces the best coffee I've ever tasted. There is instant hot water throughout the house. The kitchen is great - 6 ring gas hob, a double width oven, a full compliment of the best quality chef knives and every utensil that any foodie could ever want. There is two gardens with different aspects that offer sun or shade throughout the whole day. I genuinely could not find fault in this property.

The town is quiet and laid back. Within 3 minutes stroll you have a choice of 3 restaurants. Our favourite was Di Vinicio's just over the bridge - basic decor but the food was really good - typical pricing for 2 courses with water, bread and house wine - 40 Euro for two people. Freshly made pizza - 3.50 to 5.50 Euro each!

The area is mountainous and it is best if you hire a car - the very helpful tourist office in La Villa will provide plenty of free advice on the numerous activities and sights that are available locally. There is a train station in Fornoli (1 km) that can take you up into the mountain villages or down into the beautiful walled city of Lucca - with connections to Florence, Sienna, Pisa and beyond.

A week in Villa Serraglio was not enough and it is our sincere hope that we will be fortunate enough to return in the future.

heerlijk huis in toscane

  • 4 out of 5
Wij hebben een heerlijke veertien dagen gehad in deze villa, Zeer compleet ingericht en heel comfortabel.Wij waren met vier volwassenen maar met zes is ook goed mogenlijk. Zelfs de Weber bbq met kooltjes was aanwezig zoals we thuis gewend zijn. De keuken was meer dan compleet met potten,pannen en kruiden. Bedden en slaapkamers helemaal goed. Vanuit de villa zijn restaurants en Italiaans ijs te verkrijgen op loopafstand. Wij bezochten Lucca (op de fiets) , Pisa , Firenze en Marina Viareggio voor het strand. Voor de markt Castel Nuovo en in de bergen San Pellegrino , kortom een aanrader!

The spa town of Bagni di Lucca sits in the “Val di Lima,” a beautiful green area in northwest Tuscany surrounded by hills and mountains dotted with villages. The town was once famous for its thermal springs and frequented for centuries by writers, poets, artists, noblemen, politicians, saints and popes. During the peak of its popularity in the 19th century, famous names such as poets Byron, Shelley, Browning, writers like Dumas, musicians such as Strauss, Listz, Paganini, Puccini along with other personalities of the day all could be found in Bagni di Lucca. The town provides an ideal base to explore Tuscany, with the major historic sights and cities within easy reach: Florence (about 1 hour's drive), Lucca (25 minutes), Pisa (50 minutes), Siena and the Chianti Region (90 minutes) and Arezzo (90 minutes). You can also simply enjoy the charms of this historic town and the surrounding area or relax in the delightful garden. The ski resort at Abetone is also one hour's drive away.
