Every detail was thought of. So welcoming and comfortable. The pool was fabulous. Found some excellent local restaurants and gelateria within walking distance. Highly recommended.
very good property
great accomodation with excellent pool and very well located for Lucca and Pisa
Great location - v relaxing beautiful pool area
What a find this place is - better than I expected - beautiful apartments and grounds and pool are superb - you can walk into lucca takes about 35 mins - but to be honest it's so nice to eat at the apartment and sit outside looking at the beautiful surroundings
We are very happy that you had a lovely time with us!
It was a pleasure to host you and your family.
This review is written by a family of 4 (children aged 10 & 11) staying in May 2017. We broke down the review in sections that were important to us when choosing a rental.
Outside: WOW, true Tuscany! Even better than the photos. Acres of space, beautiful gardens, amazing views. The gardens are beautifully kept. There were several sections to enjoy including the large clean pool, lounge/sunning area, outdoor dining, and open fields. We appreciated the owners take great care to ensure each guest has a designated space of their own. The outdoor areas provided shade cover. Our boys loved playing football in the open field then going for a swim the pool. We had very memorable family dinners under the portico.
Inside: We stayed in Timo with 2 bedrooms. The children had their own beds in a shared room. Beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious. The views from each window were fabulous. Kitchen was very well equipped. The apartment was very clean and quiet.
Location: Just outside of Lucca - wonderful town to visit for shopping, dining, etc. This was our 2nd location on our Italy trip and a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of Rome. There was a grocery store, restaurant, bakery, and ice cream within walking distance. We arrived by train and did not rent a car but used taxi service too and from the villa. The villa is just outside Lucca, very quiet with views of the mountains.
Owner Communication: Giovanna was absolutely wonderful. Prompt with email reservations and inquiries. She helped us with arranging taxis, groceries, information, etc.
Overall: We would absolutely stay in this villa again and would highly recommend it for a restful stay with plenty to see and do in Lucca. Next visit we would want to try some of the cooking classes in the area.
Thank you for your review, it is fantastic.
We hope to see you soon.

lovely old farmhouse set just over the river from Lucca , ideal for mountains and visits to main tourist towns , manager could not be more helpful even taking us to station early in morning , getting lost in Lucca all part of fun , found some great restaurants serving local dishes , facilities on site were excellent and pool most welcome after all the walking in the sun
Lovely property with perfect location

Reach the important cities of Tuscany: Florence, Pisa and Siena.Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts. “La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and olive oil tasting.
