Our first impressions were WOW, and the family proceeded to show us around and explain the workings of the property. After they left, we were treated to a Tuscan thunder storm which made the experience even more special! We found the property very functional, there were 4 of us in the party and there was plenty of space to give each couple a sense of privacy, and breakfasting on the terrace each morning (thankfully the weather did improve after that first day!) was a lovely start to the day. We also found the location to be ideal for travelling into Pisa and Florence, we drove to Pisa (about 45 mins) and took the train from Cascina (about a 20 minute drive) into Florence as we thought parking would be difficult there. The train service was very efficient and around 6 euros each way for the 1 hr journey, a recommended stress-free way to see the city. We'd also highly recommend the town of Lucca (around 35 mins), and Volterra (around 1 hr) to add to your itinerary. The local village of Buti was just ok, fine for getting essentials like bread and milk, but quite limited for eating out. We did however find a little gem of a restaurant called Il Maggi, just off the main square in Buti, reasonably priced and the food was stunning. We'd also recommend one just a 10 minute drive towards Bientini, called La Valetta, a superb family-style restaurant with sensational pizza. All in all we had a fabulous stay and we would highly recommend the villa for anyone seeking peace, quiet and tranquility during their holiday.

The walk is about 15mins away to the city walls with a resturant we recomend 5 min walk away. If we return then we would stay here.

The apartment was lovely and the quality of the everything was of the highest order. Please note that Al Fiori apartments do NOT have a panoramic view over the Lucca valley as many photos on the HomeAway website would lead you to believe. You need to book a more expensive apartment type to get the view which is truly spectacular. We learned this in Italy. The apartment is part of a complex centred around a very grand Villa and it is not a traditional complex but more a small village of buildings which have ALL been renovated to the highest standard. It really is amazing. The complex has visitors from all over Europe and the kids found many different friends by the excellent shared pool. Matraia is not the most exciting village and the 2 local restaurants are not the best but the views over Lucca are very special. The nearest supermarket is a good 10 mins away but it is excellent. It is very easy to get to Lucca, Pisa and even Florence from Matraia. We were very positively surprised by Pisa which offers a lot more than the tower. The mountains behind Matraia are very green and lush and well worth a hike. The mountains are not the highest but cyclists will still enjoy them due to their extraordinary steepness. There is a huge cycling scene in the area. The local wine was disappointing and tbh we never managed to find a good restaurant, however the food in the local supermarket was actually superb from their deli desk and the apartment had a full and well equipped kitchen. We would go back to Tuscany for sure but next time we would probably move more towards Chianti/Siena.
