My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautifully appointed apartment for 3 weeks in October/November 2018. We were so impressed with the apartment and the attention to detail. The photos do NOT do this rental justice. It is in fact, so much nicer if you can believe that. Ms. Sonia was amazing. So prompt and effiicent and knowledgeable. After giving us an orientation of the apartment and the amazing town of Lucca, Ms. Sonia left us to enjoy the apartment with complete privacy yet we knew she was just a phone call away. I could go on and on but let me just say that the location was perfect. Close to everything. A five to ten minute walk to the train station if you wished a day trip somewhere. Bike rentals seconds away. The kitchen fully equipped. The mattresses were very high quality, never a problem with water pressure which often can be an issue there. Thank you sincerely Ms. Sonia for an unforgettable week at Apt San Giovanni.

We have returned home from a fantastic 2 weeks in Tuscany wishing that we had spent two weeks in Tuscany! The Farmhouse Coccinelle (what a funny name!) was the perfect pla-ce for our family of 4 (all adults) to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beauty of the house. Thanks to the loving care that Sonia put into this property, we hated to leave! Upon our ar-rival, we received a great orientation about the area and the rich history of the home. We were also given cell phones and a preprogrammed GPS (very helpful!) to use for the week that we requested in advance to Mrs Cristina. Thanks to Cristina, we had a deli-cious meal delivered to the villa to enjoy our first night. This was money well spent as we were tired from our long trip. We took day trips to Lucca (very close), Florence, Pisa and Cinque Terre. Sonia has all of the directions for these destinations at the villa. We enjoy-ed all of the day trips, but hated to leave the beautiful villa. After we returned from our day trips, the kids headed straight for the pool with a garden and setting that is beyond words. When we travel, we really enjoy getting to know the people who live in the area and seeing how they live. We enjoyed using our limited Italian to talk to the neighbors...they were very friendly and kind...one even brought us fresh figs from her garden...yum! Another group invited me to sit down with them as I was returning from my morning run. A highlight of the trip was the barbeque party at the villa. Cristina fired up bbq and taught us how to make the best meat that we have ever had. It was fun to chat with her about life in Italy...a night that we will always remember. Finally, we all slept like babies at the villa...it is quiet! The only sounds you hear in the morning are birds and roosters...wonderful! The beds were extremely comfortable with fresh linen sheets. We loved our visit...
