We enjoyed the quiet location just 10 minutes' walk from the city walls of Lucca. Aldo, the owner, was very friendly, always ready to help but without being, in any way, intrusive. He always waited patiently for us to speak our faltering Italian even though he speaks excellent English himself! We certainly plan to return to Lucca and stay here again. Thank you Aldo!

Amazing views, very characterful house, which was more spacious than I imagined. Peaceful, yet a very realistic 25 minute drive to Lucca. Just as you would imagine a peaceful countryside retreat. If I hadn't already seen that the owner wouldn't sell, I'd be asking!
