For three glorious vacations (October 2016, October 2017 & October 2018), my family and I trave-led to Italy and stayed in this delightful home. Coccinelle Farmhouse has all the charm of the Tu-scan countryside: sunshine on your face, open fields to roam and culinary experiences to share. The villa gave our family (3 generations) plenty of room to congregate and enough places for a little privacy. All three years I traveled with my bicycle, wandering through many of the villages that sur-round Lucca and never did get to see all the places I wanted to. The house is situated between the flatlands of the coastal waters and the hilly region of Lucca; an excellent location for the true cyclist. My family and I were particularly pleased with our host, Sonia who shared with us the Italian way besides providing an immaculate home. From harvesting olives to a performance of a Puccini ope-ra to a local blacksmith making tools, they gave us an insider’s look at this beautiful country. We learned how to make pizza in a stone oven, tasted wine only the locals know about and stepped on-to the Ponte del Diavolo (Devil’s Bridge). So bring your book if you need some down time by the pool, bring your appetite to eat all the delicious offerings, bring your intellect to study the arts and don’t forget your sense of adventure to discover all that Italy that is known for. This is THE place!-
Absolutely stunning location and fantastic outside living.
Greeted and shown to property by 2 very friendly ladies who inducted us to the villa. Convenient shop and bar in village, and choice of supermarkets 15min away. Super pizzeria 5min away. Beautiful walks available straight from the property along dirt tracks and into the wetland areas - only downside are the mosquitos and horse flies that at times were relentless! Very convenient for Lucca, Pisa and beaches.
Villa inside was new, clean and kitchen well stocked, plus plenty of towels and linen provided - but if we were to be picky the sofas and master bed not that comfy (pretty hard), and the decor quite old fashioned / quirky. Aircon definitely an added bonus and good WiFi speeds. Paying the electricity bill of 10EUR at the end seemed very odd considering the amount we had paid for a 2 week stay!
