Originally from Bradford, West Yorkshire in the UK, I lived in Halifax before coming to live in Bagni di Lucca permenantly in 2006. I have been married to an Italian, Antonio for many years now and have a son Massimiliano Ernesto. Italy I love and have travelled to most areas. It was whilst on holiday in 2006 that I fell in love with Bagni di Lucca, because of its location being close to many of the tourist attractions, good transport links and stunning scenery. I bought my first home here in 2006, before buying my farm now called La Stalla di Guzzano in 2008.

Joanna Nobile purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Having lived in Bagni di Lucca for many years I was looking for a challenge and a place we could call home. I also wanted to start my own organic farm and food business. Having viewed many properties it was when I saw the old abandoned cow sheds and stables that make up La Stalla di Guzzano in I knew I had found my forever home. The rental property Il Fienile was originally the hayloft of the farm and dates back over 200 years. It is surrounded now by our farm produce, saffron, truffles and over 400 olive trees.

Location, location, location Views to die for, peace an tranquility yet close to the centre of Bagni di Lucca filled with bars shops and restaurants. Nearby is Pisa & Florence airport, the beaches of the Versilian coast, skiing in the winter and the beautiful cities of Pisa, Florence, Lucca and the Cinque Terre.The villagers are friendly and helpful and the view from the farm of the surrounding hills dotted with quaint Tuscan villages is one of the best I have ever seen. Simply magical !. The centre of Bagni di Lucca filled with bars shops and restaurants as well as thermal spa centres, is less than a 10 minute drive away. People staying with us can sample local produce, tasting wonderful organic food from the fruit trees and allotments and enjoy a true taste of Tuscany. In the summer we also offer evening meals under the stars twice a week.

Charming house, sublime location

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 29-Oct-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
I can't praise 'Il Finile' highly enough after our autumn break there. The house is everything you could want in a holiday let - a real home-from-home, welcoming and well-equipped, with comfy sofas, lovely wood-burning stove and efficient heating. Returning in the dark after a day exploring the many local attractions truly felt like coming home as we lit the fire and relaxed with glasses of fantastic local wine. Joanna and Antonio were friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and always ready to assist. The location is unbeatable - as others have said, the views on all sides are sublime, and the hamlet of Guzzano extraordinarily picturesque. There's so much to see and do - VIlla Reale at Marlia was my favourite - and we could have filled two weeks rather than one without any effort at all. All in all, it was a perfect antidote to dreary Scotland in October :-). Hope to return again and repeat a fantastic experience.
Owner's Response: We want to say how lovely it was to meet you and the whole family, we would love to have you back any time as you were a joy to have a guests. Finding things to see and do for families with teenagers can sometimes be a challenge, however as you found out here there is lots within the local area of interest that all of you the seemed to enjoy. On rainy days the property is central heated with a log fire and all the comforts of home. Making it perfect as a relaxing holiday retreat for complete family chill out days! Thanks again for sharing your holiday experience with others. Keep in touch and take care all of you Joanna, Antonio and Massimiliano

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Jun-2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2013
When I first arrived in the area of Bagni di Lucca, I couldn't help but focus on the stunning landscape surrounding the house. My next thought was how peaceful it was in this part of Tuscany. Of the few weeks spent on holiday in the house, many of the days were used by the pool laying out in the sun, enjoying the beautiful views of the mountains, and the peacefulness of the area. The location of Bagni di Lucca is fantastic with easy trips to the nearby lovely towns of Lucca, Florence, Pisa, and even Siena, Portonevere, and the Cinque Terre. The trains are easy to use and make traveling fun and convenient. When you're here, you can tell Johanna and Antonio take pride in having people stay at their place. I would gladly recommend staying in this area of Tuscany. Thanks Jo and Tony for a wonderful holiday I won't forget!
Owner's Response: So please you loved it here. It is really beautiful and people visiting this part of Tuscany can never get over how lovely it is. The property has the perfect location to making it easy to explore Pisa, Florence and Lucca as well as the Cinque Terre. We hope to hear from you again soon regarding next year until then thanks again and take care Joanna

Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa. The views are second to none and the atmosphere in this rural, but accessible part of Tuscany, is worth a trip all on its own. Beautiful people, beautiful country. I will definitely be going back.
Owner's Response: Hello colin and thank you for your review. We are so glad you loved the property. As you found it is perfect as a base to see the sights of Tuscany such as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Cinque Terre and the Versilian coast. As a place to simply chill, soak up the Tuscan sun and relax, this is as you said to us, a piece of Tuscan heaven!. Thanks again for your review. Thanks also for your booking for next year. We are looking forward to seeing you again. Kind regards Joanna and the family.

True Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 27-Nov-2012
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2012
Fantastic! The apartment was perfect. Really luxurious,nicely furnished, sparkling clean and with sunning views as well. The area of Bagni di Lucca is beautiful countryside in a historical setting and there is so much to do including lovely walks, visiting the thermal spas, shopping in the local markets and exploring the castles and fortresses. The cities of Lucca, Pisa and Florence are also really nearby and well worth a day visit. The owners could not have been more helpful, stocking our wine rack, suggesting tours and activies and even including us on the farm. The children loved picking the local kaki frui off the trees and feeding the geese and chicken. We would really recommend this holiday rental all year round, and are definitely booking to come back next Winter!!
Owner's Response: Winter here is just lovely and as you found out you can be sat in your t-shirts even at this time of year. The winter evenings are glorious, you can see lovely sunsets and enjoy a glass of wine around the roaring log fire. This is also the time of year when the olives are being harvested in Tuscany, We are so glad you enjoyed the olive picking and meeting the locals. Don't forget to think of us back home as you enjoy your bottle of olive oil, fresh of the olives pressed, that you helped to collect. For people like yourselves wanting to escape from city living and find a relaxing place to come, with lots to see and do nearby, as you said in your review Il Fienile ticks all the boxes! Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Fantastic Tuscan Autumn Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 15-Oct-2012
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2012
We arrived at the farmhouse and was struck by the sheer beauty of the area. The property was spotless and had everything and more you would expect from a holiday rental. The fixtures, fittings and the furnishings are of a high standard giving it a real home from home feel. The owners were lovely really friendly and helpful. We decided to come out of season as we have never seen Tuscany in Autumn. We have to say that it was perfect cool enough to enjoy the surrounding area walking, horse riding and the cities of Lucca and Florence. We enjoyed eating in the nearby restaurants and street cafes in Bagni di Lucca. It was a really relaxing break and we would recommend this property to anyone. We have already booked a week next year with them and cant wait for our return visit.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review, it was great to meet clients who have been many times to Tuscany and yet never been out of peak season. As you said the property and the area is lovely in Autumn and this is us our favourite time of year. The food festivals are in full swing, the porcini mushrooms are being hunted and the grapes harvested. The countryside is a buzz of rural activity which as you found out you can join in if you wish. ( Marco said he is so glad you loved helping with the grape collection and wine making). The tourist sights of Florence, Lucca and Siena are all easier to navigate around, as you don't have the usual queues found in the summer. Our horseriding ranch in the village is getting busier each year and most of our clients really enjoy this as well as the lovely walks nearby. We are so glad you are planning on coming back again in Autumn next year we can wait to see you both again. Until then take care. Joanna, Antonio and Massimiliano
