We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa.
The owners keep the villa spotlessly clean and tidy, popping in each morning to tend to the gardens without us even knowing. They were so helpful, providing information and assistance when needed.
The pool area was excellent, plenty of sun and shade depending on your preference. There was also lots of different seating options in the garden.We used the BBQ on a few occasions and the owners provided all necessary equipment including coal and firelighters.
The villa itself is well equipped
and was very homely. Pleasing three generations can sometimes be a challenge, but everyone was more than happy here.
The villa is opposite Pasticceria Del Cima which sells the most delicious breakfast pastries and cakes. There is also a large supermarket in the town and other restaurants, pizzerias and bars /cafes nearby.
It is centrally placed to explore Lucca and the surrounding areas, including the beautiful Villa Reale which is only 2km away.
This apartment was the perfect size for 3 adults. It was clean and spacious. It was convenient having the washer/dryer combo in the apartment. We enjoyed exploring Lucca in spite of the fact that we got lost very easily and had to use google Maps to get around half the time! Be sure to follow Sonia’s directions for arrival, parking and finding the apartment. We didn’t and had some difficulties at first. There is a souvenir shop next door that sells cold bottles of water - very convenient. We enjoyed renting a surrey and taking a ride around the walls. We followed Sonia’s suggestions for a couple of restaurants- you must go to Galleria Numero 38 and tell them Sonia sent you for the royal treatment! We also had Cristina and her daughter come to the apartment one night as personal chefs- an unforgettable experience and meal!
We do have a couple of suggestions for the owners: the photos need to be updated. The main reason we chose this apartment was because of the photos of the garden. It is not quite what it looks like in the photos. However we did enjoy eating breakfast out there every morning and having our special dinner out there too. Another suggestion would be to have some basic supplies for the first day such as toilet paper, bottled water, etc. Maybe some sort of welcome basket. Overall we enjoyed our stay in Lucca and Sonia was very pleasant. The binder with pertinent information was extremely useful. There is so much to see and do in Lucca and we have wonderful memories of our stay here. Grazie!
