About Stefania

My name is Stefania. I am a 'Lucchese' businesswoman, and I live near from my holiday villa 'Pennecchio'.

Stefania purchased this villa in 1997

Why Stefania chose Lucca

This Holiday Villa belongs to our family since 1970. I restored all the villa on 1997.

.

What makes this villa unique

Holiday villa 'Pennecchio' is a Tuscan holiday farmhouse on the outskirts of Lucca, at San Colombano, a typical Tuscan village situated along the slopes of the hills of Lucca, and is surrounded by age-old olive groves.

The recently restored farmhouse set along a hillside overlooking the plain of Lucca is, without doubt, the perfect spot for those wishing to spend their holidays amongst enchanting countryside whilst still being able to enjoy the benefits of all the latest mod.cons.

The farmhouse is the ideal setting for family holidays, and is also suitable for groups, couples, sports enthusiasts, lovers of nature and all those who enjoy a healthy lifestyle and adventure holidays.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Pennechio is a fabulous property, centrally located near many places, such as Pisa, Lucca, Viareggio beaches (a must)! The grounds are beautiful, the neighborhood true Tuscany with its old well preserved architecture. The home is cozy, and the air conditioned rooms are quite pleasant. Stefania is a wonderful host! My husband accidentally left a large sum of $$ in one of the bedroom drawers and she and her housekeeper made sure to get in touch with us to wire it back! Thank you soooo much for that! You won't go wrong at this villa! It has everything you need!

Great location in the hills of Lucca

  • 4 of 5

After a warm welcome by the owner Stefania, we immediately felt at home and settled in for our 4 weeks stay. Stefania was most helpful to show us how everything worked in and around the house. When there was a problem with the television, she solved it immediately. She kept in contact to make sure everything was alright and to make our stay as pleasant as possible.

The description of the house is accurately described on the Homeaway and the pictures give a good image of reality. The house is cosy (especially with the fireplace burning) and has a great outside area where we had lunch several times when the weather was good enough. From there you have a great view over Lucca and surrounding countryside. The pool looks great, but it was too cold for a swim! The kitchen is well equipped and has all one needs to prepare a nice diner. The bedrooms are upstairs and have more than sufficient space to store your belongings. The bathroom upstairs has a bathtub without shower curtain, so we used the small bathroom downstairs most of the time. We spent a lot of evenings by the fireplace reading. But the location is also great to explore Lucca, Florence, the Garfagnana, Pisa, the Versillia etc. Lucca has a lot to offer with great events, concerts, antique markets, theatre and a great wall to walk on during Sunday afternoons, with all the locals!

We thank Stefania for making our month in Italy as enjoyable as it was.

Perfect family trip to Tuscany.

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we could have hoped for, clean and cozy. Unfortunately for us we had a lot of rain so we were unable to even attempt a swim. Our saving grace was the large gazebo with table and proximity to Lucca.

Pennechio is a beautiful villa. We hope to have the good fortune to visit again.

MOST AMAZING VACATION LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5

STEFANIA PETRONI'S HOLIDAY VILLA

Absolutely fantastic!! There were 5 of us and we had an amazing time. This Villa is located in the region of Tuscany, a beautiful setting. When we awoke every morning we would look out our window and see an amazing view. Stefania, the owner was so helpful, her recommendations on a winery and spa were perfect. She even arranged for us to hire a Chef to come in and cook with us one evening, it was so much fun. She was always quick to respond and very helpful. The Villa had all that we needed and we enjoyed the pool. I look forward to going back! I highly recommend this location! Ciao : ))

Picture perfect,

  • 5 of 5

True Tuscan feeling just like under the Tuscan Sun, The Villa was very clean and inviting,

Stephania made us and our friends feel very welcome and gave us what ever information we needed to assist us in our travels throughout Tuscany, The location is pretty centrally located to wherever you may want to go, Train travel was easy from Lucca and you can also take buses from Lucca to Florence,

If you rent a car like we did it would be wise to get a GPS also . There are many roundabouts or traffic circles on the roads and the GPS was very handy,

The views from the Villa are spectacular and the pool was a very welcome relief for those days when you don't want to travel,

Just can't say enough about Stephania who is a smart business woman and a very courteous person who helps in many ways.

We would not hesitate to come back to Stephania's Villa and see more of Tuscany and Italy.

We stayed for three weeks and never grew tired of the views or the great Italian food.

Stephania , we just want to say Thank you for your great hospitality and I,m sure everybody else that stays at your Villa will enjoy it as much as we did.

Thanks again

Joe and Linda Ciaburri

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We have been here two times, first a month in march 2010 and now for one week in April 2014. Our kids (5,8) and us love this place! The house is just beautiful with everything you need, always clean og very charming. The garden, pool and the view is just amazing - and I would like to recomend to take your morning coffee outside watching the sun wakes up the beautiful city of Lucca, or have dinner outside watching the sun go down!

Stefania is the most fantastic host and fix everything for you :-)

Thank you again Stefania for everything.

We can absolutely recomend this beautiful place to everyone!

Best, Misha, Teo, Marianne & Steffen

Beautiful property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so peaceful!! I loved waking up to the sound of the church bells in the distance! We had 6 people (2 seniors and 2 kids, 9 and 13, and 2 adults) and the place was perfect for us! It was in a great location to visit so many places that we didn't even get to them all after being there 2 weeks!! We loved it and plan on coming back!! Stefania was great! She was very helpful in making our stay comfortable! Thanks Stefania!!!

This holiday Villa is situated to the north of hills of Lucca in a small village called S.Colombano.

This area has a wealth of beautiful ancient villas as Villa Manzi, Villa Torrigiani, Villa Reale and Villa Grabau etc, which were once the home of the nobility of Lucca. All villas are open to the public. (Check opening times)

A panoramic road known as the 'Strada del Vino' ('Wine Route') runs through past many local villages and farmhouse estate where visitors can buy the best local oil and wine.

Near this village there are some good restaurants, banks and a chemist in Segromigno in Monte, near 2 kilometres from my holiday Villa.

A supermarket is about 3 kilometres from my holiday Villa in Marlia where you can find all you need.

In Collodi about 10 kilometres from the villa there is 'Parking of Pinocchio'.
