Beautiful House To Let Overlooking The Valley Of Bagni Di Lucca
average rating of 4.6666665 based on 3 reviews

Very Spacious With Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

Large rustic house in the small village of Granaiola in the Tuscan mountains. Drive from the river valley up to the village is narrow and winding but the road is paved and kept in good shape. Good location for day trips to the surrounding mountain towns and close to Lucca and Florence. A car is a must since public transportation to the property is very limited. Lots of stair climbing in the house and only bathrooms are on the top floor...not suitable for wheelchairs. Kitchen was large and very well equipped. Heating was minimal so also not very suitable for colder weather. Property notes state "The rates include a continental breakfast served everyday - if clients do not wish the breakfast there is no reduction in cost." but this was not the case and needs to be corrected. Kevan, the owner, was very accommodating and can provide insider information and recommendations about the local area. Best local restaurant we tried was del Sonno in Bagni ("Bahnee") di Lucca.

Ein ruhiger, entschleunigender Urlaub in einem außergewöhnlichem Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist genau so wie auf den Fotos. Eine rustikale Villa, mit Liebe eingerichtet und Platz ohne Ende. Das Haupt-Schlafzimmer liegt im Obergeschoss. Wenn man morgens die Augen öffnet, blickt man vom Bett aus in die schöne Natur. Im Erdgeschoss ist das riesige Wohnzimmer mit zwei sehr großen, sehr bequemen Sofas sowie das kleine "Lesezimmer" mit jeder Menge Büchern. Im Untergeschoss findet sich die riesige Wohnküche. Hier muss man betonen, dass Die Küche wirklich voll ausgestattet ist. Es gibt viele Pfannen und Töpfe, Schüsseln und sogar Backformen. Man findet auch eine große Auswahl an Gewürzen vor. Insgesamt ist das Haus komplett eingerichtet und nicht so "kahl", wie viele andere Ferienhäuser. Wir fühlten uns sofort wie zuhause. Von der Küche aus geht man auf die Terrasse und kann von hier aus das ganze Tal überblicken. Damit haben wir unseren ersten Tag im Haus verbracht. Wir konnten nicht genug bekommen von dem wunderschönen Ausblick in die Natur. Von hier aus sind wir zu diversen Wanderungen gestartet, waren in rund einer Stunde am Strand und in ca. 30 Minuten im bezaubernden Lucca.

Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und stets um seine Gäste bemüht, ohne ständig präsent zu sein. Man kann ihn zu jeder Zeit erreichen, falls man eine Frage hat.

Alles in Allem war es eine außergewöhnlich schöne Zeit für uns, wir werden wiederkommen.

Liebevoll renovierte Haus mit herrlichem Blick

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus entspricht exakt den Bildern. Es ist sehr gut ausgestattet und bietet viel Platz. Besonders die große Küche lädt zum gemeinsamen Kochen und Essen ein. Wir haben das Haus mit einem befreundeten Paar bewohnt. Zu jedem Doppelzimmer gehört ein eigenes großes Bad. Alle Zimmer sind mit vielen Kunstgegenständen liebevoll dekoriert. Man bewohnt ein kleines Museum Das Haus liegt in einem kleinen Ort in den toskanischen Bergen. In dem Ort gibt es keine Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, aber ein sehr gutes Restaurant. Ein Besuch ist sehr zu empfehlen, aber es muss vorher reserviert werden. Das Haus ist ideal zum Entspannen und Entscheunigen. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Anmietung und der Auszug waren sehr unkompliziert.
