It had everything what you need. The property was comfortable and very clean. The look at Lucca and surronding was beautiful. The roud up was wery winding and narrow but it was not problem for us. The owner Massimo was very friendly and extremely helpful host. He arranged for us the local chef and we had excelent home made dinner. We hope to return someday. Grazie mille Massimo.

Beautiful views all around and an incredible restaurant only 15 minutes walk down the hill in the next village. A perfect getaway for two!

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.
