We found everything according to the description. The houskeeper Anna was very friendly and helpful, especially with the centralheating that was absolutely necessary as we stayed around Easter of 2017. We loved the tiny hamlet of Castello, the silence, stunning view of the surrounding hills and the walks through the olive tree gardens as well as the proximity to Lucca. Dear Jenny, we've already recommended this house to friends and plan to come back sometime! Kind regards, Uli, Heinz + Yuma

The house was very comfortable, and the garden lovely with beautiful views down to Lucca and of the surrounding hills. Our grandson enjoyed playing in the extensive olive grove garden. Well placed for exploring the area. We spent two days in Lucca, and could have spent more if we had the time. Lucca is a beautiful town, and we had great fun on our quinquecycle around the city walls. There are numerous palazzo style villas in the area, our favourite being Villa Reale di Marlia, a short drive away, where we were the only visitors on a glorious day. We enjoyed walking on the footpaths to the local country restaurant Canapino and to the hillside villages above the villa. The local supermarket, Esselunga was very well stocked.
