Beautiful beaches, etc. A great help as you experience the bedst of your vacation. that was the first time we were in Italy on vacation, Great ice cream, delicious food and fine wine. Beautiful nature area. I hope we will one day come back. In the Danish winter we will talk about our successful holiday. Good holiday to anyone who has to be lucky to experience this beautiful house.

Lovely house in the Tuscan mountains

5 of 5
It was our intention to do some walking in the mountains, but eventually the boots were left untouched for a week in a corner of the living room. Pian di Lucca indeed is a marvelous place to stay and we immediately felt at home in “our mountain cottage”. Photos on the internet offer truthful images of what you can expect. The house is very neat and comfortable, though simply furnished. The kitchen offers plenty of space to prepare dishes but of course we also tried the pizza-oven and the BBQ. Wonderful. The quality of the beds was up to the standards of the rest of the house. Although we stayed in July, nights were pleasantly cool, presumably because the house is situated at 900 meters of altitude. The house is situated in a very quiet setting on a large terrain which is entirely fenced off so children can play adventurous games without their parents having to worry about their safety. By the way, despite the isolation we never felt unsafe, we rather felt in harmony with surrounding nature. During our stay, a technical problem with the pool, the masterpiece of it all, occurred. We easily managed to get into contact with Paolo’s daughter and still the same day Paolo’s son and a friend replaced the defective valve by a new one. No worries, simply top service, and reliability. Our gratitude to Paolo and family for this. There are a limited number of (small) restaurants in the nearby hamlets or villages (e.g. Carregine 10 minutes). The use of a car is necessary for this but the mountain roads are well practicable and traffic is in any case not dense. It takes about 20 minutes downhill to Castelnuovo which is a pleasant town with shops and gelateria’s (!) but also a medium sized supermarket in the outskirts of town (Via Valmaira) which offers all you need, so no need to go to the bigger one in Galliciano. And, finally, in case you or your digital natives might need it … the wifi at Pian di Lucca is very stable.
