Lovely house in a peaceful setting in the Tuscan hills
We stayed for a week in September 2018 and were very lucky with the weather. We were met by the owners and welcomed with prosecco and homemade biscuits and we had fresh flowers in the bedrooms which was a nice touch. The house was well equipped with everything you need and was like home from home. There are three double bedrooms and one of them had bunk beds, also 2 bathrooms both with walk in showers. The surroundings were so peaceful and perfect if you want to get away from it all. We visited Lucca a lovely walled city, Pisa and Florence which we went to on the train from Lucca. It is about 20 minutes drive from the coast at Viareggio which is well worth a visit with miles of sandy beaches. I would definitely recommend this property and would return again.
Lovely house in a superb location surrounded by mountains and olive trees.
A lovely house set in the Tuscan countryside. The house was spacious and full of character with the bonus of two beautiful walk in showers and well equipped kitchen. The location, surrounded by mountains and olive trees, was perfect and ensured complete tranquillity and privacy. The hosts were very attentive and ensured the pool and house were spotless and any query actioned immediately. A very easy drive into Lucca, a beautiful ancient city with so much to explore and enjoy. Also a well stocked supermarket only a few minutes away with good opening hours. Overall a wonderful house that suited our needs exceptionally well.
I stayed at Il Platano in September 2014 with a friend. The house is very prettily furnished, well equipped, and spotlessly clean. It was an absolute pleasure to spend a week there, and I wouldn't hesitate to return. The garden and views are wonderful, and for the first time ever I would have been quite happy to spend my holiday relaxing by the pool each day taking in the beautiful scenery. I normally want to explore as much of an area as possible but this place just makes you want to slow down and enjoy what you have right there on your doorstep. I have visited this part of Italy before and there are plenty of places nearby that are well worth dragging yourself away from the house for, but it's a difficult choice when where you are staying is so relaxing and enjoyable. Fresh flowers in the bedrooms on our arrival and gorgeous toiletries left out for us to use were very welcome extras. The hosts were very kind and helpful despite us arriving much later than planned due to delays at the airport. Thankyou Maria Cristina and Luca for a wonderful stay.

We stayed at Il Platano the first week of September 2012.Although we had two days of bad weather we found it to be heaven on earth. The house was much more than we expected it to be. It was fully equipped as if it were our own home away from home. Upstairs there are three bedrooms one bigger with a double and a bunk bed. With a spectacular view of the olive tree valley. The other rooms are a double and a two single bed room. So staying here with six adults is perfectly doable (although it was just the two of us and our dog), especially because there are also two bathrooms. The outside of the house is a bliss, you have 30000sqr meters of land with olive and fruit trees, where we could take a walk, stuff ourselves with fruit and have our dog go nuts. You can have dinner on the sheltered terrace overlooking the hills. What we liked most of our stay here was that it was quiet and secluded and we had the entire premisses all to ourselves. If we must come up with two minor flaws these would be the presence of quite a lot of flying insects (however bug sprays and repellent candles were provided). Secondly because of the hilly location the sun sets around 19u00 in September, after that eating outside was a little cold and mosquito fest-like. The owners, Luca and Christina, who live about 15 minutes away in Lucca, were absolutely wonderful and welcoming people who take pride in delivering a clean house and swimming pool. They don't mind to help you out or give you good advice. Thanks, Luca and Christina, we will probably see you next time. Michelle and Gert

"A very quiet beautifully appointed 3 bedroom property surrounded by lovely countryside and views.All the amenities one would expect are provided in the house (including a TV and outside a much appreciated small swimming pool)
The property is 1.5 km.from the main road and is accessed up a hilly narrow lane with some sharp bends but quite easy to drive along.
The owners of the property were very pleasant, most welcoming on our arrival and very helpful."
