Week's stay in Santa Maria del Giudice

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this villa. It was very comfortable and well equiped. It is set amongst the olive groves in the countryside but within walking distance to the local village. We enjoyed sitting out in the evening surrounded by olive trees full of fireflies. It is a truly beautiful location. The owners are very nice and were extremely helpful - especially when we had a flat tyre! The location is wonderful, being close to Lucca, Pisa and the beach all driving distance of no more that 20 mins. The beach is part of a national park and is very unspoilt. There are well marked hiking routes that can be taken from the villa itself up into the mountains. All in all, a very beautiful location.

Beautiful villa amongst the olive groves of Tuscan

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a fantastic week in this lovely villa in Santa Maria del Giudice. The villa was very comfortable and well equiped. Located between Pisa and Lucca the villa was perfect to return to after a day in the city or at the beach. It was very peaceful and was an absolute pleasure to sit in the evening outside and watch all the fireflies in the trees. There was also plenty of opportunity to walk into the mountains and the routes were very well marked. The owners - Pno and Daniela were absolutely delightful and very helpful, especially when we had a flat tyre! They were the perfect hosts. We felt that this place was amongst one of the nicest places we had stayed and would recommend it to anyone.

Schöne Lage aber etwas in die Jahre gekommen... Preis Leistungsverhältnis Mittel.

Pool schön . Sehr ruhig und idyllisch gelegen. Terrassenmöblierung etwas spärlich und dadurch unbequem. Sehr nette Gastgeber

Un coin de paradis en toscane.

  • 5 of 5

Merveilleux endroit que ce petit ranch au milieu des oliviers, très reposant. Situation idéal pour visiter Pise, Lucques, Florence, le littoral et les carrières de marbre. Accueil parfait de Daniella, son mari et sa fille, qui nous on fait déguster un plat local, et notre fils à même fait du poney! Le plus difficile est d'en partir!

Owner's Response: Grazie Geraldine, é stato un piacere avervi come ospiti. Il 20 agosto è nato finalmente il puledro di pony...peccato che non abbiate potuto vederlo! Un saluto a te e famiglia da parte di tutto l'Oliveto

Super Urlaub für die ganze Familie

  • 5 of 5

Wer einen landestypischen Urlaub mit sehr herzlichen Gastgebern sucht, ist bei Daniela und Pino genau richtig. Das Haus ist insgesamt einfach, aber passend ausgestattet. Die Gastgeber unterstützen wo sie nur können. Für uns (2 Erwachsene + 2 Kinder 10/13) war es Erholung pur- Mitten im Olivenhain. Eine Kleinigkeit, die aber bei den sommerlichen Temperaturen von 35 Grad Celsius gut zu verschmerzen ist, dass das Warmwasser vom Wasserdruck abhängig ist und damit nicht immer zur Verfügung steht.

Die ruhige Lage zwischen Pisa und Lucca ist perfekt für Ausflüge nach Pisa, Lucca und ans Meer. Wir würden jederzeit wieder hinfahren!

Who is looking a typical holyday for Italy with warm hosts, is just right by Daniela und Pino. The house is good and proper equipped. The hosts supported us as good as they can. For us, 2 adults and 2 childs (10 and 13), it was a very good relaxation in the middle of a olive wood.

A little thing, but no problem at 35°C, the warm water depend on the pressure in the water pipe. So you don't have warm water every time. The quite location between Pisa and Lucca is perfect for trips to Pisa, Lucca and to the sea. We would come back every time.

perfect place for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in 'L'Oliveto' from Sept. 1-15. L'Oliveto is situated in Santa Maria del Giudice, a small town located about 8km from Lucca, 10km approx from Pisa airport and about 30mins from Viareggio.

The house is situated on a hill, immersed in nature. It's very cozy and practical, it has a lovely veranda where we always had breakfast and lunch. 1 of the bathrooms has a bath tub which was very much appreciated by our 2 year-old son :) There is no washing machine but there is a laundry (5mins drive) open till midnight (1 wash - EUR4!).

The swimming pool is about 50mt from the house and has a wonderful panoramic view.

It's a 10mins ride from Esselunga (a very big supermarket). We also did our shopping in a minimarket in the village a couple of times. The minimarket (next to the school) is owned by an extremely helpful young couple and they are well stocked.

///Don't buy olive oil in the supermarket but from Pino and Daniela, they make a delicious olive oil///

Daniela, Pino and Angelica (their 9 year-old daughter) are lovely people, very sweet, always available to meet our requests, they even lent us some toys for our 2 year old!!

They live in another house behind the house they rent out, they have 3 ponies and they give pony-riding lessons to children.

On our way from Pisa airport to Santa Maria del Giudice we had lunch in a nice restaurant in San Giuliano Terme, on your left hand right before the tunnel called 'Il Pozzo'. The food was very nice and Giacomo (the owner) a very nice guy. We liked it so much we went there another time for dinner.

If you are looking for a quiet place a short distance away from all Tuscany's highlights then this is your location!!
