I highly highly recommend this holiday rent and we

  • 5 of 5

Buca Del Tasso is a beautiful house in a stunning location run and owned by extremely friendly people who will go out of their way to be helpful and make your stay even more enjoyable.The house itself is built from reclaimed stone from the original Tuscan farm building and so it has maintained the authentic Italian look that as visitor to this part of the country we were keen to find. The traditional exterior is complemented by the interior–beautiful Luccan furniture and cloth is just what you would expect.The great thing about the house itself is that not only does it look good, it all works!The showers are hot and powerful and the bathrooms clean and bright while the kitchen works perfectly.There’s a great mix of old meets new–tradition meets function– that makes the actual stay a real pleasure.The master bedroom–a four poster extravagance– has the same view as the sitting area downstairs.Both these rooms look straight out over the hill edge onto a beautiful valley which tumbles down into Collodi, the Pinnocchio city.Photos rarely do views particularly and so I’m not sure how they come out on the website, but the view really is what this property is all about. Well, that and the pool, which shares the same view.The grounds are great–just what you need to make secluded even more private.There are a dozen or so old olive trees that produce the finest olive oil i’ve ever had.If you ask Kiara,she might give you some to try.The tranquillity and the beauty is obvious on arrival,but its the help that went with it that made it so special for us.Kiara wanted to show us Lucca;tell us where to eat;what to do;how to do it.The villa is about 20 mins up a hill,which is again about 20 mins from Lucca on the way to Pescia.Its a great place to explore the rest of Northern Tuscany from–but you can check all this out on travel website.To be honest,while we liked Lucca and its history and walls etc,there’s only so many ice creams you can eat and Renaissance you can look at.And when the alternative is lying in your own pool overlooking an amazing view without any noise at all,the idea of leaving to do anything else isn’t very attractive.So, the location is amazing,the house is just right,the grounds and pool beautiful,the things that you want to be functional, functional,the owners wonderful and the area stunning.There’s nothing not to like about Buca Del Tasso.I highly highly recommend this holiday rent and we will definitely come back soon.

Beautiful Villa with Outstanding View

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful Villa. The pool and grounds are meticulous. Kiara and Anna, the owners, are lovely people. They catered a dinner for us one evening that was superb and a highlight of our trip. The road up the mountain is not for the faint of heart, but the beautiful view was worth the ride. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you all had a good holiday at our house. Well, what about the road, definitely for you Americans (accustomed to huge streets) it was really small, but in our country the roads are more or less like this !! You're some really lovely people and I hope to see you again. You will be always in our hearts !!
