A little bit of heaven in the Tuscan countryside!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. It was fabulous for all ages. We were a group of 13 ranging in age from 77 to 22 months. Carla and Juri are the owners and the most amazing hosts. They helped plan activities like horseback riding. They also solved problems. (We needed a doctor when the baby got sick).

The Villa is beautiful, immaculately clean and completely up to date on amenities, Including a TV, VCR, Hair dryer, electric coffee pot, washer, and dryer.

There are 4 bedrooms with extra large queen size beds, l bedroom with a set of twins, and in the annex a bedroom with 3 twins. All rooms have AC, screens, and shutters.

The kitchen is modern and well stocked with plenty of glassware, dishes, pots, pans, etc. Carla even stocks oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar, flour, and some spices. It is perfect if you want to cook.

I had Carla provide breakfast for us on our first morning. It included juice, coffe, milk, cereal, yogurt, fresh breads, sweet rolls, jams, fruits, Nutella, cheeses and meats. I highly recommend this. It saved us from having to get to a store right away and it was so plentiful it lasted several days.

The real highlight is to have Carla cook a traditional Tuscan dinner and dine as group out on the Veranda overlooking the gorgeous valley.

The pool does not have a true shallow end but it is large and is salt water. There are plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas around the pool. There is also a hot and cold water shower poolside to rinse off. Pool towels were provided.

The Villa is 7 miles from Lucca, 16 miles from Pisa and 40 miles to Florence. The mountains surround the valley and make for a lovely drive. There is something for everyone. We did a wine tour, biked, snorkeled, hiked, and did canyoning. The sightseeing is unlimited.

All I can say is “IF THIS VILLA IS AVAILABLE, BOOK IT! You will not be disappointed. Carla and Juri will make your stay a little bit of heaven.

The Best trip ever

  • 5 of 5

This trip was dream come true for my friends and family. For years, I've been planning my wife's 50th birthday in Tuscany. This is her favorite region. But here's the catch...It was all about surprises. She had no clue.

After seeing Juri's place, i knew i had found the perfect spot. We arrived to a warm smile and hug from Juri. Toured the villa, and simply fell in love with it. It filled every checklist for me and then some. I could not have asked for more. It was absolutely charming.

We woke up the first morning to freshly baked lemoncello cake from Momma Juri, Carla, and started our adventures into some of the beautiful countryside anywhere. The central location to the villa, got us to most of Tuscany in any direction, with ease.

Simply the best trip and experience ever. Thank you Juri, Momma, for making it so perfect and easy for us.

I'll BE BACK no doubt

Amazing family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?

It took me a LOOONG time to find a place that would be suitable for my whole family - trying to please a 2 year old to an 82 year old.

Well, we all believe Juri's house is the perfect fit.

From the very beginning it felt like home. It is well suited with everything you could need for your perfect Italian getaway. Grocery stores are convenient to the house so you can pick up all your goods, and then cook in the beautiful kitchen.

Bedrooms are all well sized with comfy beds, and high end facilities and usb wall chargers.

Bathrooms are new, clean and have plenty of them for a full house of 12 people!

Having an extra pool house was perfect for our family as we had 2 adults and 2 young kids there... great to have their own space.

The pool - its amazing! Clean, spacious, fresh, and Carla is there cleaning and preparing it every evening and morning.

Juri and his mother Carla - Wonderful hosts! Very attentive and helpful when anything was needed. We couldn't get the coffee maker to work and Juri provided a brand new replacement immediately. When the wifi didn't work, Juri was there to get workers in to fix it. I couldn't have asked for any better assistance, so thank you!

We also had them prepare a meal for my mothers birthday. It is very nice to sit by the pool and enjoy some of the best Italian food we have ever eaten. I highly recommend.

Overall - I recommend this villa to everyone. Only comment I can make is - Make sure you stay long enough! Thanks for everything!

Amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely beautiful, and the setting even more so! I had exchanged emails with Juri and he recommended and booked some local restaurants and a vineyard tour for us, and all of which were fantastic. Juri even organised all of our taxis during our stay making it stress free and perfect. We were celebrating a 30th and 60th birthday during our stay and Juri's mother cooked us the most fantastic meal and nothing was too much trouble. I cannot recommend this place enough!”

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This place is really a little piece of heaven. 15 minutes from the beautiful town of Lucca, in countryside setting, Juri and his mother Carla have created a simply wonderful place to stop and pause.

I spent a perfect week here with my parents, my sister and her child and my 4 children. There was plenty of room for everyone. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable (mattresses are firm and supportive). Kitchen is truly well equipped for cooking and supermarket only 5 minutes drive away. The house is a new old style home with exposed timber beams and tiled floors, double glazed windows and doors all with fly screens (needed and rare to find), and great plumbing for showers and baths. Pool house has extra beds, but also a second very well stocked kitchen for cooking by the pool. Wifi worked, with wifi extenders provided in pool house and some bedrooms. Everything has been thought of. The gardens and pool are divine and lovingly tended to by Carla every morning.

We had Carla cook us dinner one night and had an absolute feast. My 7 year old daughter has decided Carla is the best cook in the world! Everything she made was delicious.

Juri and Carla are both delightful, accommodating people. Carla speaks no English and I speak no Italian, but i loved every interaction we shared.

We were so transfixed here that we explored far less of the region than we had hoped for. So much is easily accessible from here, but sitting by the pool in the Tuscan sunshine watching skydivers jumping from planes was so relaxing.

The guest book reveals many return guests and it's clear to see why. My only hesitation in recommending this place for a stay is concern it will be booked out when I want to return. Perfection!

Thanks Juri & Carla!

Fantastic spacious villa all mod cons lovelypeople

  • 5 of 5

This place was so good for our extended family holiday in 2015 we came back again this year. The villa itself is really smart, spotlessly clean and with plenty of space. In addition there is a dinky little "pool house" with another kitchen and a further double bedroom. So It can easily accommodate 5 couples and a few extra people too. Loads of fridge, freezer and cupboard space and everything kitchen-wise is provided, in duplicate, plus an outdoor barbecue. The pool is really superb, cleaned every day and perfect. But the real star of the holiday is Carla, padrona di casa, for whom nothing is too much trouble. She is kind and generous and a great cook so make sure you go for her full-blown 5-course Italian evening meal. Juri is really efficient and super-helpful too. All in all highly recommended.
