One might think the last week in October would be cold, but whilst the nights come in around 1830, it's still warm enough to sit on the terrace and enjoy a glass of the local Tuscana Red. The house is beautifully equipped and laid out, and is more like staying in a home rather than a rental. everything is at hand, and we wanted for nothing. Lucca is only 20 minutes away and well worth a visit, but it's a difficult decision to go, or to sit in the tranquil gardens with a good book enjoying the spectacular views. The Simply Market in Monsagrati has everything you will need food and drink wise, but if you need a bigger selection, Carrefour in Lucca is not far away. We didn't attempt to start the bread oven, but did manage a couple of barbeques including the must try Fiorentina steaks. In summary, a Tuscan home from home that we have every intention of returning to.

We wanted "peace and quiet" and we certainly found these here. There were warnings provided about the road up from the village to Castello, and it was certainly not for the uninitiated. Having driven in Devon and lived in the Derbyshire Peak District, it was easily handled, so don't be put off. The property was exactly as described and the photographs were true representations of what we found. There is lots of charming character and a "quirkiness" that may cause you to ask "why" when you see some of the construction. Directions to the property were good, although we did have some difficulty finding the actual "apartment", given that there are in the region of 13 other units in the converted "castle". A slightly more prominent number by the door would have helped. Inside we found comfortable furnishing and there were adequate utensils in the kitchen, although some of these are somewhat "passed their sell by date" and could do with some replacements. The main bedroom is lovely, but watch your heads, there are some really low beams which caught us out in the first day or so. Also be aware of the big step up into the bedroom, particularly when heading for "rest stop" in the middle of the night! We did light the kitchen fire once, but found it created a smoky atmosphere in the whole house, so relied on the CH for the chill evenings. The bathroom is also adequate, although not large, but a lovely big shower made up for this. There is a nice selection of music CD's and tapes, plus numerous DVD's if you need to watch TV. The folder giving property and useful local information was extensive, although somewhat out of date. We were disappointed to not find a guest book, as we'd hoped to view other visitor's suggestions. We were there in early October and found it really difficult to locate restaurants that were actually open in the smaller towns. This may have been partly due to us not getting into sync with the local habit of closing at the times we were looking! We solved the problem by buying food from the Esselunga supermarket near Lucca, and then taking lunches with us. Occasionally we found a lovely restaurant open and saved our picnics for the next outing. To give us more flexibility, we cooked our evening meals; easier and far cheaper. At the end of our holiday we both decided that we had made the right choice and would return.

We loved being within a small Italian village, everyone very friendly. The owners provided an excellent set of instructions before we left and Doreen and Sofia further help after we arrived. The villa was spacious and had everything we needed, a further plus was a very comfortable living room with lots of books and dvd/tv if you needed. We had excellent weather so were outdoors and in the pool most days but had nice trips out to local mountain villages and Lucca (sightseeing and market). Would definitely recommend the villa to others and hope to return ourselves next year.
