The pool was out of this world, the kids loved it as did we. Giuseppe was so so helpful, booked us a restaurant, gave us travel advice - where to park for the main cities. It is perfectly positioned for Lucca, Pisa and Florence, nothing was too far. It was like having a friend you could call on -thank you so much we had a lovely holiday. The local restaurants were lovely and locals friendly. It was a peaceful haven, you do need to drive but just gorgeous we had a lovely lovely time. Thanks Giuseppe and Raoul xxxx

The owner, Stefania, gave us a warm welcome, showing us round and giving us lots of useful tips - she'd also been great about answering questions by email before we arrived. The spacious garden, large swimming pool and generous outside seating area are truly exceptional - and, for us, a perfect setting for a sunny, Tuscan holiday. Thank you, Stefania, for everything - we'll be back!
