What an amazing experience!!! From my very first communications with Guiseppe until we said goodbye, it felt as though I was interacting with an old friend. Guiseppe was responsive from the moment I reserved the villa and went above and beyond to address all of my questions. He helped me to organize our plans before arrival, including a Cinque Terre tour, Tuscany cooking class at the villa, and a chef-prepared dinner. Because of his help, a group of women from the U.S. were able to navigate beautiful Tuscany stress-free.
We stayed in Villa Caterina from May 18th – May 26th. The villa was nice and cozy and had more than enough room and amenities for our group of six. Everything inside and outside the villa was like every picture you have ever seen of Tuscany…absolutely beautiful, with vivid colors in every direction. Guiseppe met us upon arrival to show us the ends and outs of the villa. After showing us the villa, he led us to the market in Lucca, so we could pick up groceries…and, of course, spirits. The Cinque Terre tour was my favorite. Guiseppe arranged for his driver, Biagio, to pick us up at the villa and drive us to Portevenere, where we caught the ferryboat to the five coastal villages that comprise Cinque Terre. Biagio met us at the end in Monterosso and drove us back to the villa. Like Guiseppe, Biagio was a wonderful host. During the drive, he pointed out various landmarks and made an already great day, an unbelievable day.
We drove the rental vehicle daily to Lucca and felt very comfortable navigating the area. There is a large public parking lot next to the train station in Lucca where we parked to take the train to Florence. Some of the group took the train to Rome for an overnight stay as well. Basically, Villa Caterina is ideally located to get to and from the various sites quickly and without any fuss.
I cannot say enough about Guiseppe, Biagio and the Chef. Two days before our departure day, we lost one passport and the U.S. Embassy was on holiday for a few days. The three of them stepped in and helped us work through what could have been a terrible situation. It warms my heart to know regardless of where you go in the world, there are still kind people…and, for that, I am forever grateful.
your wonderful review makes me proud!
Thank you so much,
Very beautiful villa with a lot of comforts.Highly recommended, both for families and for larger groups. Excellent! We had a wonderful stay and for sure I will come back again!
Excellent Villa in a beautiful location!
Villa Caterina is very comfortable, well equipped and immaculately maintained in a beautiful, peaceful location. Relaxing in the garden by the pool is idyllic, but at the same time the location of the villa means visits to places such as Lucca, Florence and Pisa are all within easy reach, as well as the beautiful hilltop villages of Montecarlo and Montecatini Alto.
Giuseppe is very helpful, he quickly answered any query and was at the villa to meet us upon arrival, where he recommended restaurants and suggested places to visit.
Six of us (across three generations) spent a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks at Villa Caterina, we will be returning next year and none of us will hesitate in recommending Giuseppe and his villas to our family and friends.
This villa was more than we expected! A very nice lay out with plenty of room for all. Very clean. The location is a country scene centrally located so visiting other areas is very convenient. The owner was there to greet us and show us around. His hospitality was wonderful and greatly appreciated. If you're looking for a charming villa - this is it!! I highly recommend this villa.
Beautiful Villa in a Great Location
We had a fantastic week staying at Villa Caterina. The villa was roomy, spotlessly clean and comfortable and the garden and swimming pool were beautiful. Giuseppe was friendly and helpful and met us personally at the villa to show us round. He always answered emails promptly and gave us tips on what to see and do. The property was well positioned to visit Lucca, Florence, Montecatini Alto and Pisa. We had a truly relaxing week and would definitely recommend Giuseppe and his properties. Giuseppe's secret weapon though is his dad Antonio who used to be a chef and delivered freshly baked cakes and pies to our villa every other day....fabulous! Our one very slight criticism was that the two upstairs bedrooms were hot, we did have an exceptionally hot week, maybe more fans or air con there! Otherwise a beautiful, tranquil and restful place, thanks Giuseppe!
Dear Sarah, thanks a lot for your very good review! Also my father is happy to know that you enjoyed his cakes. Thanks also for your suggestions: in addition to the air conditioning we already had in the villa, we have placed two news air conditioners in the two bedrooms upstairs so now we are ready to face also periods with such an exceptional hot weather as we had during your stay. We hope to see you again at Villa Caterina!Giuseppe
Excellent host and villa
Me including my family of nine members stayed at Villa Caterina for five nights. The villa is beautiful and well maintained with all the facilities needed for a family including children. All the house rules are properly documented and displayed. Its location is very convenient to travel other parts within two hours including Florence, Siena, Lucca, Cinque Terre (in Liguria), Saint Gimignano, Volteraa, Pisa, Como and many other beautiful places.
Giuseppe is a very good host . He comes personally to the villa to welcome and answers any queries with patience and details. His communication through email, SMS and phone calls are promptly answered.
In future, we will definitely like to stay again at Villa Caternia.
we have been very happy to have you at Villa Caterina, and we hope to see you again for your next holiday!
The villa is located in the hearth of the typical Tuscan countryside, characterized by olive groves and vineyards that you can visit with a short walk. The marvellous private park is full of flowers and trees
