Our family of 4 stayed for a week in Il Forno and though it is the smaller cottage, it fit us well and was a good starting point to our daily travels. Also we were lucky enough to have some sunny days in October and relax in the pool with great views on Lucca!
Marina and Paolo are amazing hosts - very warm, welcoming and helpful! They had a welcoming treat for us and booked us dinners in nice local restaurants, which you can reach by foot and have tasty meals at reasonable price.
Their garden on the hillside is beautiful and peaceful, a perfect spot for countryside vacation, but still close enough to local villages and ancient town of Lucca. Understandably, with a gorgeous view comes a steep (and narrow) road up to the house, so you better have a smaller car and great driving skills. But it is totally worth it and also gets easier every time. Tuscan roads are a real driving lesson. :)
Our children loved the place, especially the pool, but also Marina's dog and cats were special favourites of ours.
It is a great place for rustic vacation, where we would definitely love to return! Grazie mille, Marina and Paolo, and lots of love from all of us!
This is really a lovely house at a fantastic location in the hills overseeing the valley of Lucca. Lots of space, great swimming pool and well maintained property. Whilst there is WiFi, think it would add to the total experience if the TV stations are extended with English language channels. Also the road to the house can be a bit better maintained as quite qa painful experience for the car! But overall, highly recommended.
