The house was very comfortable, and the garden lovely with beautiful views down to Lucca and of the surrounding hills. Our grandson enjoyed playing in the extensive olive grove garden. Well placed for exploring the area. We spent two days in Lucca, and could have spent more if we had the time. Lucca is a beautiful town, and we had great fun on our quinquecycle around the city walls. There are numerous palazzo style villas in the area, our favourite being Villa Reale di Marlia, a short drive away, where we were the only visitors on a glorious day. We enjoyed walking on the footpaths to the local country restaurant Canapino and to the hillside villages above the villa. The local supermarket, Esselunga was very well stocked.

It is located in a quiet and safe area of Lucca and was central to all the high class shopping in the via Filungo and the antique market area.The owner provided a very comprehensive outline of the accommodation and transport arrangements. Every enquiry was met with a prompt reply. The accommodation was bright and airy, the beds very comfortable and the kitchen equipment superb. It was very welcoming after a long flight. We enjoyed very much. Grazie Mrs Sonia!
