Holiday House On The Hills Of Lucca- 2 Bedrooms-2 Bathrooms-1 Sofa-Bed Sleeps 6
- English, Italian
My name is Stefania and my mother's name is Elda, and we live near from my holiday house.
Stefania purchased this Farmhouse in 1970
Why Stefania chose Capannori
This Holiday house belongs to our family since 1970. I restored all the holiday house in July 2014.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
A Tuscan holiday house on the outskirts of Lucca, at San Colombano, a typical Tuscan village situated along the slopes of the hills of Lucca, and is surrounded by age-old olive groves. The recently restored farmhouse set along a hillside overlooking the plain of Lucca is, without doubt, the perfect spot for those wishing to spend their holidays amongst enchanting countryside whilst still being able to enjoy the benefits of all the latest mod.cons. The farmhouse is the ideal setting for family holidays, and is also suitable for groups, couples, sports enthusiasts, lovers of nature and all those who enjoy a healthy lifestyle and adventure holidays.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
We spend 2 weeks in the holiday house from Stefania. We had a great time. The house remained cool while outside it was very hot.
The garden had a very nice spot with a dinnertable. There were
all sorts of gardenchairs. Our dog had much space in the very nice garden where you could sit in the sun but there was also shadow.
We visited many nice places, Lucca, Pisa, Vinci, Pistoa, Forte Di Marme, the garden of villa Reale and villa Grabau.
We had a lovely time.
Stefania's Holiday House
Stefania was a most gracious host. She was always helpful when we had questions, suggested great restaurants and sights to see and addressed any issues promptly.
We used the house as a winter getaway from the cold of New Hampshire, but also found time to visit sights such as Lucca, Cinque Terres and the Chianti trail. The house was very nice inside, but tended to be cold due to the stone walls. We used the Kitchen fireplace every evening and it was warm and comfortable but it only heated the kitchen area. Gas heating was expensive so we tended to keep the thermostats turned down. The comforter on the bed kept us very comfortable at night.
All in all we had a nice relaxing time and enjoyed the house very much. We would go back again, but not in winter.
Just an amazing time!
We just returned from 7 WONDERFUL days at Stephania's Holiday House. From the moment we drove up to the property it was breathtaking. Stephania greeted us and showed us all the essentials of the property. She gave us wonderful recommendations to nearby restaurants and the food was excellent. The convenient locations of the property allowed us day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Venice. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the back terrace and of course our wine in the evening outside as well. I highly recommend this property and look forward to returning in the future.
Peaceful and relaxing holiday in beautiful Tuscany
We enjoyed a fantastic week here in August and enjoyed every minute. The house is well-presented in a traditional Tuscan style and very comfortable. The garden was unfortunately suffering from the heatwave and lack of rain, but it provided the privacy in which to enjoy our holiday. We ate on the terrace every morning and evening, taking in the sunshine and beautiful views. There were a range of sun-loungers, deck-chairs and dining furniture to cover all uses and which enabled us to make the most of the sunshine, and regional wines!
There are supermarkets within easy reach and the kitchen offers everything you need to enjoy the Italian foods on offer.
Stefania was a very helpful hostess, offering advice about places to visit and also made a reservation for us at a restaurant across the valley - Da Giomo, which we really do recommend going to at least once!
A car is essential but from here we easily visited Pisa, Lucca and Florence.
Perfect location to explore Tuscany
The villa was in the perfect location for exploring the Tuscan region. We fell in love with Lucca and the villa had all the necessities for making our holiday like home from home including the lovely dog that lives next door but roams from house to house in the the small complex
We visited Siena, Florence, Collodi and along the West coast for the beaches
Beautiful country and amazing places to visit
Stephania was so helpful in pointing out all the villa's amenities and advising us of the area and when we had any queries she was so very helpful
Happy in Capanori
Stefania's house is well located and in a stunning position with views across olive groves to the mountains beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. It is only 15 minutes to Lucca and about 45/50 minutes to a lovely beach. A good supermarket is 10 minutes away.
The only downside for me was that the shower cubicle was rather small.
Overall a great place to stay

I 'll be very happy to have you and your family, my guests in the next years !
I just want to specify that the size of the shower is a standard size:
length centimeters 90 -
width centimeters 80 -
height centimeters 250.
This holiday house is situated to the north of hills of Lucca in a small village called S.Colombano.
This area has a wealth of beautiful ancient villas as Villa Manzi, Villa Torrigiani, Villa Reale and Villa Grabau etc, which were once the home of the nobility of Lucca. All villas are open to the public. (Check opening times)
A panoramic road known as the 'Strada del Vino' ('Wine Route') runs through past many local villages and farmhouse estate where visitors can buy the best local oil and wine.
Near this village there are some good restaurants, banks and a chemist in Segromigno in Monte, near 2 kilometres from my holiday Villa.
A supermarket is about 3 kilometres from my holiday Villa in Marlia where you can find all you need.
In Collodi about 10 kilometres from the villa there is 'Parking of Pinocchio'.
