"A wonderful gite on a be...

  • 5 of 5

"A wonderful gite on a beautiful hillside surrounded by olive groves and only the noise of wildlife. We would thoroughly recommend it to any couple who want to relax in privacy by the pool, but within an hour or so of the principal cities of Tuscany. If you explore by car you will very quickly find cafes and great restaurants in the nearby surrounding countryside, as well as the local bakery. The lady owner is lovely, going well beyond the call of duty when my pregnant wife and I arrived late on our first day! We would definitely be returning we''re it not for the arrival of our daughter, which means we need a larger place. We are staying in the area again this summer."

Geen airco & slechte service/No airco & bad servic

  • 1 of 5

-- For Eglish see below --

Accommodatie is moeilijk te vinden, maar heeft een prachtige ligging en biedt alle privacy. Het vakantiehuisje heeft echter geen airconditioning of ventilator, waardoor het binnen net een sauna was. Deuren en ramen kon je in de avond niet openen, want het wemelt van de muggen. Er was dus geen verkoeling mogelijk na een hete zomerdag in Lucca. Slapen lukte slecht en daardoor konden wij niet tot rust komen. Wij hebben gevraagd aan de eigenaren om een ventilator en met pijn en moeite mochten wij een tafelventilator lenen voor één nacht. De houding van de eigenaar was hierin absoluut niet servicegericht. Het leek hen niet te interesseren of wij comfortabel waren. Hun geld was ontvangen en daarmee leek er ook een einde te zijn gekomen aan de vriendelijkheid van de eerste dag. Zonder airco is deze plek volgens ons geen doen in de zomer. Om deze reden hebben wij zelfs 3 dagen eerder een ticket naar Nederland geboekt. Wij zijn liever thuis dan op deze plek, ondanks de prachtige ligging en het zwembad. Wij raden deze plek dan ook niet aan, tenzij geïnvesteerd zou worden in een airconditioning en de houding van de eigenaren. Als klapper op de vuurpijl wilden zij ons niet tegemoetkomen en kregen wij geen euro terug voor de nachten dat wij eerder naar huis gingen, want dat wij niet comfortabel waren in de hitte van het huisje dat was niet hun probleem. Niets is wat het lijkt, denk goed na voordat je je geld uitgeeft!


Place is hard to find, but beautiful. Big dissapointment however is that there is NO airconditioning (not even a fan), so it feels like a sauna inside. It's impossible to cool down after a hot summer day or to have a good night sleep. We asked for a fan and we could use a small fan (they were no very eager to help) which didn't help us much. This was a reason for us to go back home 3 days earlier. The owners couldn't care less that we were so uncomfortable and also refused to give us a (partial) refund for the days we went home early. It was simply 'not their problem'. We would not recommend this place, even though its place is stunning and the swimmingpool is lovely, unless the owners invest in airconditioning and their additude.

Un havre de paix

  • 4 of 5

L'accès est un peu difficile, mais c'est le prix pour être vraiment très tranquille. Le studio est bien aménagé, la literie confortable, la cuisine bien équipée et la piscine à disposition privée des vacanciers est très sympa. La salle de bains n'est pas très fonctionnelle et un minimum de produit de première nécessité serait un plus (produit vaisselle, sel, poivre, etc ...) d'autant que beaucoup de vacanciers doivent faire comme nous qui prenions l'avion: laisser sur place l'épicerie.

Calme absolu et très bon accueil de nos hôtes. La région est très sympa d'autant plus si vous aimez la montagne qui est à proximité.

Super schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Es ist zwar nicht so einfach die Anlage direkt zu finden, ist man aber abgekommen wird man es nicht bereuen. Wir hatten zu dritt zwei sehr schöne und relaxte Wochen dort. Die Unterkunft ist mit allem ausgestattet was man benötigt. Der Pool ist traumhaft und die Anlage darum wunderschön. Man ist ruhig und abgeschieden und kann sich sehr gut erholen.

Elisabetta und ihre Familie ist sehr, sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Sie halten alles sehr sauber und der Pool wurde jeden Tag gereinigt.

Die Anlage ist ein Traum und wir können sie nur weiterempfehlen. Auch können wir uns sehr gut vorstellen unseren Urlaub dort jederzeit zu wiederholen.

Que du bonheur!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Superbe petit gite, idéal pour deux, avec tout le confort d'un petit nid douillet. Situé en pleine nature et vue imprenable sur la toscane. Endroit calme et reposant offrant une détente absolue près de la piscine. Idéalement situé, proche de Lucca, Pise, Florence et la mer... entre autres. Sans oublier l accueil chaleureux d Elisabetta. A recommander sans hésitation

From A11 Florence or Viareggio:Exit highway in "Lucca Ovest" following local directions for Viareggo. Immediately after crossing the river Serchio turn left in direction "Nozzano Castello" and then "Balbano". Go ahead until you find Via di Compignano, Loc. al Basso on your right.

In the near surroundings we can suggest you a variety of nice restaurants where you can enjoy the typical local cuisine in a warm and charming atmosphere. In July in Lucca takes place the famous "Summer Festival" with renowned international stars and in the end of August/beginning of September in the suggestive village of Nozzano Castello the medieval festival "Il castello rivive" (The castle comes back to life), an event that recalls the medieval life in the Castel of Nozzano: street performances, medieval arts and crafts, ancient music concerts. In September our guests can experience "hands-on" the grape harvest in our vineyards. The accomodation is available also in October, during the event "Lucca Comics & Games".
