Very clean appartment. It is in excelent condition. The location is great. Near the train for trave

5 of 5
We arrived very late, but were made welcome. The house is old style on the outside which is great. It has all the modern items you require and all work perfectly. it is very near the train station and the old town of Lucca (just a short walk). We traveled from Pisa airport with no problems. There is lots of space in the apartment and a garden out the back of the house. Would I stay there again: YES The owner lives in the house in their own apartment and was available if we required assistance, but outside of that we only waved when passing. The house has history and charm. Shops are close by, car not required. E. Campbell

Beautiful Tuscan Villa

5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in this beautiful, traditional villa. Our children loved playing in the pool and large garden. We had lunches and dinners out in the pergola and enjoyed the wonderful views over to Lucca and the mountains. The highlight of our trip was the restaurant Stefania recommended about 5 minutes drive from the villa - fantastic food, great value and breathtaking views. We will definitely be back again!
