The farmhouse, garden, terrace and pool, everything was in perfect condition. The location in the hills of C.d.G. is amazing and there is plenty of space for everybody. Restaurants and grocery shopping within 5min driving distance. And most importantly: The hosts were amazing: Very friendly, helpful with every question and even prepared a delicious cake. We will be back!

We fell in love with Lucca and the villa had all the necessities for making our holiday like home from home including the lovely dog that lives next door but roams from house to house in the the small complex We visited Siena, Florence, Collodi and along the West coast for the beaches Beautiful country and amazing places to visit Stephania was so helpful in pointing out all the villa's amenities and advising us of the area and when we had any queries she was so very helpful
