This Holiday House belongs to my parents from 1990 .My father restored it few years ago, when I had a degree in literature and Languages in Pisa. It was my dream have contacts with foreign people and practice languages everyday.
Mimicha purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Mimicha chose San Martino In Freddana
I ‘m so interested to other cultures and I like dealing with people from all over the world. I live quite next the house, this area means a lot for me, here are my origins. I was born here and grew here, I travelled a lot but this is my place, I know its products and the uses of my earth and with my job I’d like to express what really this earth is : its hills, perfumes, green, special food and traditions.
What makes this Cottage unique

Here is a strategic point to have a global view of Tuscany : Arts( Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Siena and all other cities) Beach(Versilia beachside with all his comforts) Mountains ( Abetone )Foods and wine tasting (Garfagnana, Chianti) or just relax and activities( the property has private swimming pool and tennis and golf course) .

Property is a gem and has all you need. Quiet, idyllic, private pool, ..Mimicha is helpful, welcoming and professional... her parents are cool and respect your privacy at all times. Would recommend this property to anyone. Fabulous
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Casa Mimi and had a wonderful time. We hired a car and this made it easy to get out to different places. We did several trips into Lucca, but also did days out further afield to Florence, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano & Pistoia. We also spent several days lounging and in the pool or walking into the local village for Gelato & Pizza. There was ample space for 2 people and everything you would need for your stay. Mimicha met us on arrival and showed us around. Her parents were very welcoming, and her Dad even provided us with a bottle of wine one day, which was very kind, but they also respected our space and left us to it.
I would highly recommend staying at Casa Mimi, in such a beautiful part of Italy.
Thank you for having us! :) x

It was really a pleasure to have you here for your honeymoon!!!
Thank you so much for your comments, really appreciated. You were perfect guests and you will be forever more than welcomed.
Wish you ALL THE BEST!! :) x
Very friendly welcome from the whole family.
The bungalow had everything we needed, with enough room for our daughter to stay with us for a few days.
Weather was gorgeous, which made the pool very welcome.
Very peacefull spot, the local town. Had a supermarket, bar gelateria and pizzeria, Lucca was 5 miles away, and Pisa about 20.....both well worth a visit.
Overall a relaxing, stress free break.
Ciao!! Thanks for your nice words. I'm happy that you found everything to you liking. It was great having you as my guest and hope that you visit our area again soon.

property managed by mimi whose parents live adjacent to the property
pool was great 7m and with banana tree for shade
parents very hospitable and helpful with local knowledge

there is another rental property on site which has separate access and does not use the yard
bedroom is small with only 12" either side of bed to wall (which I head butted in the night
lounge spacious and kitchen diner adequate
dine outside in yard
Thanks for your review. It has been a pleasure help this people who were in difficulty at arrival , that s why one morning I woke up earlier to get them in Lucca with my car and my daughter of 2 years. I get them in Lucca to rent a car.
When is possible we do all we can to help our guests. I was happy to do it for them. Looking at the picture of the bedroom nothing is hidden , dimensions are shown.
Description too is clear and is explained where is situated the cottage. We have more than one cottage and this is the one we rent more, because is really appreciated!!
I thank again .
Veel nice, well equiped appartement.
The two of us stayed for a full week in casa Mimi. We were welcomed by Mimicha who is very friendly and helpful. The appartement is cosy, nicely decorated and very well equiped. We do a lot of home Cooking and found everything we needed. The service provided by the family who runs the rental was great. We had some issue with the warmwaterboiler and the boiler was replaced the same day.
We prefer reading objective reviews when we select our holiday destination so here is why we deducted one star.
The appartement is very close to ,at the back of the house of the owners, Mimicha's parents. Lovely and very sweet people who gave us our privacy and even some appatizers when they were having diner. Expect a few cars and a friendly wave a few times a Day.
Reviewing beds is very personal. For us the matras was a bit soft and saggy with the springs noticable. We didn't sleep great so we would suggest upgrading the matras.
You definately need a car to get around.
All and all we were very pleased with the place and gladly recommend it.
Thank you so much for your review. I m happy when people enjoy our efforts, We do all we can for our clients because our goal is a good souvenir of a nice staying in our property.
You have well done writing about the mattress, nobody did it before. in fact I'll do a poll with next guests and if the most do not appreciate we will change it surely. Even if it will be difficult because in may someone told me was quite hard, so It’s a personal opinion, that s why I d like to have an average of opinions, and I’ll ask everybody just to a have an idea at the end of season and change it if necessary.
I want to thank these guests that were very pleasant and nice!
Lovely 3 weeks!!
We had lovely 3 weeks for our first visit to Italy,
The pool was fantastic and just what was needed in the summer heat.
The villa is well equipped and comfortable it is in a rural location but also within easy reach of many interesting places.
We spent some time in Pisa on our way to the villa and then visited Cinque Terre (fantastic!!) San Gemignano, Lucca, Monte Carlo and its surrounding vineyards as well as testing a few of the many varieties of wine. We walked some of the many paths around the villa and made use of the excellent outside dining area where we had some very nice meals relaxing in the evenings and watching the shooting stars.
Mimicha who met us at the villa at the start of our holiday was very helpful and easily contacted if we had any problems and the owner was also very friendly and told us some of the history of the villa and the surrounding area.
We had a really lovely, relaxing weeks!!
Thank you very much for the lovely review! It was a pleasure to host your family and it is a great encouragement to start the new year with their positive feedback.
Our intent is to always do our best in welcoming travelers at casa Mimi hoping to leave a lasting and unforgettable memory.
Lucca with its monuments, squares, fountains, museums; with its tranquil medieval town center in great part pedestrian, with its theater, the Teatro del Giglio, and it's esteemed seasons of opera, prose, orchestral music and dance; with its important cultural events such as the Comics Revue and the Summer Festival, the traditional ones such as the procession of Santa Croce during the city's September festivities, or the Flower Market in April. Lucca is a city which offers the tourists attractions of historic interest and natural beauty with the sure knowledge that you can walk through the city and surrounding areas at any time in complete safety.
2000 years of history will catch your eyes walking around Lucca’s squares and streets. It is home to splendid Romanesque churches, museums, monuments, and birth place of Giacomo Puccini (1858) one of Italy most famous composer.
