Peaceful and Beautiful

5 of 5
What a wonderful week myself and my partner had at this beautiful holiday villa. lovely house, with all the necessary requirements, amazing garden and pool. Very clean and tidy. could not want for anymore. Stefania who owns the villa was superb, very helpful and informative, nothing was too much of an issue. Would love to return one day.

a dream of a country home in Tuscany

5 of 5
We (couple + dog) enjoyed a wonderful week in this very well-equipped, well-maintained and lovingly decorated country home. 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
