About Celia & Enzo Cammarota

I would like to introduce us. My name is Celia, my husband is Enzo (short for Vincenzo), and our daughter is called Isabella. We are an Anglo-Italian family and Le Mura Villa Tuscany is our country home. We split our time between Lucca and Benabbio. We have lived and worked in the area for many years having met and married in London. We have been renting out Le Mura Villa since 2001. I have been very lucky to have a unique experience, as I have always been treated as a local by the village and in our Piazza in Lucca. We are very happy to help our guests in any way to make their holiday as perfect as possible.

Celia & Enzo Cammarota purchased this villa in 2000

Why Celia & Enzo Cammarota chose Bagni di Lucca

We chose Le Mura Villa Tuscany for many reasons, first and foremost for the beauty of the house and its magical position. We bought the house as a family home not an investment therefore the good road up to the property was a big plus especially in winter. The fact that the house is a few minutes walk from a village that has a very active community was important for us because we didn’t want a village without a stable population. Benabbio is one of the few villages of its size to have bars and restaurants and a wonderful food shop as well as newsagent not to mention the ruins of a castle. The house itself has lots of space and large rooms and the farmhouse kitchen complete with fireplace and stone font that I always dreamed of. The views from every room and the fact that the house had been conserved rather than done up meant that all the character was still there and the rooms are large giving lots of individual space when friends visit. Le Mura’s position near Lucca, Florence and Pisa was also very important as we could enjoy the beauty of the countryside with easy access to important centres. This area has so much beauty that I will never run out of places to discover. My husband wanted our daughter to speak a pure Italian and this part of Tuscany is still unspoilt but not remote. Enzo being the Italian chose the area and balanced rural living with access to cities to airports. Lucca our local city is a delight.

What makes this villa unique

Le Mura Villa Tuscany is your quintessential stone Tuscan Farmhouse with terracotta floors and chestnut beams. The farmhouse kitchen for me is the hub of the house. It was love at first sight. The rooms are large and all share the most amazing view of the Garfagnana national park and Carrara Mountains. The position near Florence, Pisa and Lucca and therefore hubs of transport and city life. Secluded without being remote, near a village which is full of year round residents with lots of families with small children. The joy of being able to walk to the village for shopping and restaurants but be far enough out to have privacy. The pool is in a perfect position having shade as well as sun while commanding a view over the nine horizons of mountains. The large grounds have olive groves, vines and fruit trees. I love to sit by the pool and watch the sunset over the mountains and dine with the fireflies dancing around us on a summer evening. I also love to curl up by the wood-burning stove in winter with a book and lock the world out.

The perfect place for a relaxing, farniente vacati

  • 5 of 5

Nestled among the chestnut and olive trees in the hills above Bagni di Lucca, Le Mura is a large, impeccably restored and maintained 17th century farmhouse that provides a relaxing retreat from the cares of this world, while offering every modern amenity. The views are stunning, the quiet soothing and the walks to nearby Benabbio invigorating. While the solar-heated pool and terraced gardens are enough to make you stay put, the villa’s location also offers a convenient jumping-off point for the region’s many attractions.

Celia and Enzo are the perfect hosts, and their cuisine, using local ingredients, is a real delight, especially when served on the large outdoor table overlooking the valley and those spectacular views. Enjoying Tuscan wine and quiet conversation as dusk falls over the hills is truly magical – we’ll be coming back again and again.

Beautiful Tuscan house with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

The location was idyllic and we soon got used to the road up the hill and visited Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Barga, Montecatini, not to mention vineyards, a cave/grotto and a villa where Napoleon's sister had lived. The rooms were spacious and all modern conveniences were provided. We made full use of the lovely pool as we visited during a heatwave. Plenty of shady areas were appreciated. A fabulous afternoon and evening were spent being taught to make pasta and sauces by Enzo. The restaurant in the village provided traditional and delicious food on our last evening. We will never forget the sunsets and the occasional early morning misty sunrise. Celia and Enzo were very helpful and friendly and arranged for the delivery of initial provisions and a meal and gave useful tips on restaurants, shopping, parking and routes to take. We fully endorse their choices of ice cream establishments. An unforgettable holiday.

Super holiday - glorious views over the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful traditional Tuscan farmhouse, with a private pool and stunning views over the mountains beyond.

Celia and Enzo were very attentive hosts and extremely helpful at answering any queries, whilst allowing you to enjoy your holiday in peace. Really recommend the fabulous pasta cooking classes!

Property and pool very clean on arrival and were also cleaned well during our stay. Recommend the grocery and meal delivery service on arrival.

Florence is 1.5 hour drive away and highly recommended - you can benefit from Celia and Enzo's local knowledge of where to park in the city centre, etc. Lucca very near, as is Pisa, so lots of high profile attractions to visit. The boys and their Dad loved cycling round the Lucca city walls, whilst the girls went shopping!!

Highly recommend a stay in this beautiful farmhouse in a gorgeous part of Italy.

Beautiful traditional farmhouse in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group - seven adults and two babies under two and we stayed for a week at the end of May. We were not disappointed. Celia and Enzo were the perfect hosts and ensured our stay went without any hitches. The views were magnificent from every window and eating outside with the view spread in front of us was like being in a film set! The weather was varied but there was plenty to do in the area. The two year old loved the Wendy house and was very happy to have so many toys available to play with in her room.

We enjoyed the walk to the village where the small grocers had enough to keep us going and there were a couple of supermarkets in Bagni so we could stock up.

We enjoyed a day at the beach and a day in Lucca. Lucca is a beautiful walled city and was a delight to walk around - even in the rain! My 89 year old mother in law particularly liked wondering around the town - so much so she went twice!

I would certainly recommend the farmhouse - not the place to go if you want everything modern and contemporary but if you want to enjoy the pleasures of a rural holiday in a comfortable farmhouse with magnificent views, then you will not be disappointed.

En semester utöver den vanliga

  • 5 of 5

Även om vi hade ganska högt ställda förväntningar inför vår resa så hade vi aldrig kunnat ana att få ett så fint boende och härlig upplevelse under vår vecka i Le Mura Villa som vi verkligen fick. Många grundförutsättningar var på plats; ett vackert boende bra beläget såväl nära flygplatser som trevliga utflyktsmål, uppvärmd pool, fin utsikt och ett hus som rymde oss alla. MEN, det är alla små detaljer som gör detta till semestern utöver den vanliga. Huset var så smakfullt och genomtänkt omhändertaget och inrett och andades sådan genuinitet och charm. Trädgården var lummig och parkliknande och gömde massor av spännande vrår där våra barn kunde leka. Landskapet och placeringen av tomten gav en dramatisk utsikt som bidrog till sådan avkoppling och ro för själen. Värdparet, Celia och Enzo, var så engagerade i att göra vår upplevelse bra redan innan vi var på plats och det bidrog så klart också mycket till vår trivsel. De hjälpte oss gärna att sålla bland alla fina utflyktsmål som området erbjuder, bl a små pittoreska bergsbyar, vingårdar och de närliggande restaurangerna (som för övrigt var toppen!). Höjdpunkter var också när paret bjöd oss på både en fantastisk toscansk middag och matlagningskurs. Givetvis var allt lokalt anpassat och alla råvaror antingen från dem själva eller odlat från vänner i närområdet! Överhuvudtaget var Celias och Enzos trevliga sällskap något som vi uppskattade mycket. Vi kände oss verkligen som hemma och längtar redan till att återkomma. Möjligen behöver vi mer än en vecka nästa gång, för det var splittrande att ge sig ut på alla härliga dagsutflykter och samtidigt gå miste om våra sköna dagar hemma vid poolen och det trivsamma huset… :)

Un séjour de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 4 jours fabuleux dans la villa "Le Mura". Située dans les collines, à une petite demi-heure de Lucca, la maison est dans un site extraordinaire, avec une vue magnifique sur les montagnes et la vallée. Très au calme, dans un nid de verdure, avec un très joli jardin, c'est un havre de paix et de fraicheur. La maison (du 16e siecle) a été restaurée avec beaucoup de goût (poutres apparentes, tommettes, meubles anciens): elle a beaucoup de charmes. Il y a 5 chambres spacieuses et une 6e à 2 lits. La maison est très propre, la cuisine très bien équipée. Petit village médiéval à 10 min à pied, belles balades à faire dans le coin. Les propriétaires Celia et Enzo sont absolument charmants, prêts à se mettre en 4 pour faire plaisir à leurs locataires. Celia a proposé de commander le diner pour nous le soir de notre arrivée au petit restaurant du village (délicieux!). Enzo a cuisiné pour nous un soir: c'était un vrai diner gastronomique avec les pates faites maison et des produits du terroir très raffinés. Nous nous sommes régalés. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le lieu, qui est vraiment dans un site magnifique, le charme de la maison, et la très grande gentillesse de Celia et Enzo avec qui nous avons été très heureux de discuter. Vraiment une adresse magique que je recommande vivement! Nous sommes partis à 5 couples d'amis, qui ont tous l'habitude de voyager et nous avons été unanimes sur la qualité de cette location.
