Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Clare



We had a super time in La Pianella! There were 14 of us for the week, which essentially was my husbands mum and dad, 2 brothers, sisters in law and kids. My sister and 3 of her kids joined us for 2 nights so we had a full compliment of 18 those days! We all absolutely loved the house. The space was fantastic and worked really well for us. The fact that the bedrooms were located in different areas around the house was also ideal and we were able to allocate them really suitably between families/little kids/bigger kids etc which worked well for bedtimes/noise etc. Thanks so much for the room plan you provided in advance and apologies for all the trouble your friend went to do it, but it turned out to be invaluable as we had a much better sense of layout and could plan the room allocations much better before we got there and avert any difficulties!



The pool and area around it are spectacular! We were all stunned by its size and really loved it and spent most of our time up there. While the steps up were possibly initially a bit daunting we all got very good at them and even granny, grandad and all the kids were fine on them (bar the baby and the hill was a bit of a struggle with the pram but we managed!).



We had Donatella and Sonia come in 4 of the evenings which was fantastic. They are both so lovely and a pleasure to be around. It was lovely also to experience real local cuisine and such a treat to essentially be waited on and not have to do the wash-up afterwards! The other nights we cooked (once!), BBQ'd and did the pizza thing (which was great fun but we will never get jobs in pizzerias!).



Tina and Enzo were also both lovely and looked after the house, gardens and pool very well.



We had great fun with the tennis and ping pong and ran a few challenges which kept us entertaining before dinner most evenings!



All in all we had a super time and one which will be remembered for many years to come.



Many thanks



Anna and family

A lasting memory of a perfect holiday with family

  • 5 out of 5
For a family reunion we have stayed at villa La Pianella with 12 adults and 6 children.
La Pianella is perfect for this occasion. It breathes a very welcome and relaxing atmosphere for everyone. The kitchen is excellent and very complete! Spacious and clean are the bedrooms and most of them have their own bathroom. Even the cut-flowers in the house are refreshed during the week.
The garden and tennis court surroundings are very beautiful i.e. the wisteria in the tree and the wild flowers on the hill.
For some of our family the first ride to the villa by car/camper was a thrill. The villa and facilities were the reason we’ve spent most of our holiday in and round the house.
The tennis court was used intensively.
We did go to Pisa via back roads and to Lucca for some culture and shopping. At Pasticceria Dolcevita we have bought delicious birthday cakes.
At the villa we enjoyed most of our meals. The homemade pizza but also the dinner Donnatella prepared for us. She’s stunning indeed!

We would love to come back to the villa for another reunion!
Thank you very much Clare and Mary-Ann for giving us good care and memories.

Heaven on a Tuscan Hillside

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed at both the Villa and the Farmhouse on various occasions, and were always extremely happy to be there -- and sad to leave! Perfect for getting together with groups of friends or for family reunions, the villa and farmhouse also offer plenty of space for those who want a quiet corner to relax in peace and quiet.

All one could want is on the property (swimming pool, tennis court, books), and, though we did go to Lucca (cycling around the city wall, clothes shopping), and to other surrounding towns for little outings (great market in San Martino in Freddana), we preferred just to stay at the villa and relax by the pool, or to walk along the winding roads in the area. What a relaxing, nurturing place!

We will definitely be back!

Beautiful La Pianella

  • 5 out of 5
I had a wonderful stay here at La Pianella. Within an hour of arriving I had left my London worries behind me and I was sat relaxing on the terrace of this fabulous villa, with a gin and tonic in hand!

Every morning I would climb the 99 steps up to the inviting pool, and in the early evening I would play a vigorous game of tennis - I have never played on a court in such a stunning location. The court is nestled into the hillside, and I am told that in the spring the colourful wisteria hangs from the trees and hugs the court.

Day trips in to Lucca are a must. It has so much history to devour and the beauty is as you would expect of an ancient Tuscan town.

My stay here was relaxing, educational and full of Tuscan cheer, my only regret is that I could not stay longer. You must visit here to appreciate it's beauty, as they say 'seeing is believing'.

La Pianella Villa and Farmhouse.

  • 5 out of 5
I have hired both these lovely houses and with my friends, had wonderful holidays.The location is a hilltop with beautiful views of the wooded hills and villages surrounding. You can watch the smoke from a tiny fire rise in a column in the still morning air whilst sitting on the terrace enjoying breakfast in the sun or shade.The Villa is a classical house with all modern amenities. Each bedroom is different with terraces and balconies, comfortable beds and interestingly tiled bathrooms. The Farmhouse is a modern reconstruction,very tastefully designed and decorated.I have enjoyed the facilities and had no problems.There are people who would help out willingly if needed. The road that winds it's way up the hillside is steep and has sharp bends but we had no problems with it. There is a super swimming pool and an all weather tennis court where even the least sporty members of our parties have joined in our tennis tournaments.I like painting and have found plenty of delightful subjects,as have many previous guests who have donated their work to grace the walls. In the evenings we have baked our own pizzas in the traditional ovens with the dough bought from the baker or supermarket in the village below. It's lovely to eat on the terrace in the evening enjoying the company whilst watching the fireflies and listening to the cicadas. There are plenty of restaurants in villages around,from small and charming family run to grand and expensive.All we have tried have been welcoming.Our best meals have been those we have cooked together as a team. We love Lucca. A favourite City (lots to paint!).Just watching the world go by with a gorgeous chocolate or Italian speciality dish is all you need between visiting the stylish shops and museums or taking a walk or bicycle ride around the city walls A trip to the Opera is a romantic essential. We took the service bus to Florence. Why take the car ?I can't remember any thing that we needed. I wish we could stay all spring and Autumn. I don't go in Summer as I don't like the heat but I believe the mountain air makes the temperature agreeable and there's always the nice swimming pool! We have taken different friends.All had a great time.I can't think of any draw-backs.

Proef Toscane

  • 5 out of 5
Wij verbleven hier met 5 gezinnen in de zomer van 2010. Wat een prachtige locatie!!! Een geweldig zwembad, de mooiste tennisbaan die ik ooit heb gezien en een heerlijk sfeervol huis. Samen met onze vrienden hebben we de vakantie van ons leven gehad. Onze kinderen (tussen 8 en 12 jaar) vermaakten zich ook prima met tafeltennis, badminton, tennis en natuurlijk het zwembad. Bij het zwembad staat een huisje met een koelkast zodat je niet steeds naar het huis moet, dus van alle gemakken voorzien. In de keuken is alles aanwezig om geweldig te koken. Wij zijn echte kookliefhebbers en we kwamen niks te kort. De villa bevind zich op een kwartiertje van Lucca dus dat is ook lekker dicht bij voor een dagje cultuur snuiven. Al met al een heerlijke villa op een top locatie.

Owner's Response: roughly translated....."Taste Tuscany"
"We stayed here with five families in the summer of 2010. What a great location! A great pool, the best tennis I've ever seen and a nice cozy house. Together with our friends we have the vacation of our life . Our children (between 8 and 12 years) enjoyed themselves greatly with table tennis, badminton, tennis and a swimming pool. There is a pool-house with a refrigerator so you do not need to go to the house as well equipped. In the kitchen, everything is great for cooking. We have real food lovers and we left nothing to short. The villa is located on a fifteen minutes from Lucca so that's nice and close for a day of sniffing culture. All in all a lovely villa a great location. "

Thank you to all your families for being our enthusiastic guests
and it sounds like you all had a fantastic time!

Beautiful House

  • 5 out of 5
I highly recommend this wonderful house. Amazing views, very helpful owners in a very nice part of the world. Close enough to Lucca for day visits and very private. We had a very memorable stay. On a practical note, the house was clean and well maintained, gardens were pretty and the tennis court was great.
