Why Loretta Santini chose Capannori

Lucca is one of the most beautiful cities in Tuscany. Its historic centre surrounded by walls dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries offer visitors many attractions that span from architectural beauties to typical foods. Due to its modest size, the city can be toured on foot, making it easy for visitors to fully enjoy the art treasures found in the historic centre. Since Roman times through to the Middle Ages and to the Renaissance, Lucca has maintained all its history and traditions intact. Called the “City of a hundred churches”, besides the imposing circle of walls, Lucca offers several different itineraries to discover unique architectural treasures. Piazza Anfiteatro, San Frediano, the Guinigi Tower, Piazza San Michele, Porta San Gervasio gate and Villa Guinigi are just some of the interesting sites that the city offers.

Its strategic position makes it the ideal starting point to reach other Tuscan cities of art or most frequently visited tourist sites of interest.

What makes this house unique

Guests can use the hydro-massage and private swimming pool, 14 metres long and 6.30 metres wide, equipped with a trampoline, and its deepest side is 2.40 metres. The ample relaxation area with deck chairs and loungers is ideal to enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. The pool is fenced in and a gate ensures greater safety while preventing access to small children without adult supervision. The external barbecue and wood-burning oven are available to those who wish to dedicate themselves to cooking and perhaps try their hand at pizza making. The children’s area outside includes a five-a-side football field, swings, a ping-pong table and a wooden house. The large porch in front of the main entrance and adjacent to the kitchen is furnished with tables for dining under the sunset in front of a breath-taking view.

The Villa rises on two levels, features 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and can sleep up to 14 people (11 adults + children). The rooms, catered and furnished with style, transmit guests warmth and familiarity, creating an ambience of pleasant intimacy. The wood floor of the top storey and the rustic-style finishes with beamed ceilings capture the attention and highlight the beauty of the structure. The ground floor includes a large dining room with a thermal fireplace that will make a stay at the villa special also in the winter months.

Canadian women touring Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 women touring Tuscany and spent a week at Il Gobbo and loved every minute of our stay. The villa was roomy, spotless, extremely well equipped both in the kitchen and bathrooms. The linens were plentiful and of good quality and the beds very comfortable. Our hosts were attentive to any of our wants or needs. Loretta was prompt with answering questions before our arrival, while her children Elisa and Mario were very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had once we were there. The fridge was stocked with their own prosecco and a pizza on our arrival and a bottle of Elisa's delicious internationally recognized olive oil was available for us to sample. The family was very warm and gracious and we are so grateful to have met them. The weather was warm in early October so we enjoyed the pool area and the hot tub which were both well maintained. A car is necessary as it is a 15 min drive to Lucca, but the roads from the villa are beautiful for walking and exploring the village fairly close by. I highly recommend Il Gobbo and would love to return.

An amazing Villa with real character

  • 5 of 5

This was a great Family Villa with real character, I would say that the pictures on the site do not do it justice as they do not show the quirky side to its character with the decor inside. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Villa during the week we stayed.

The Villa was about 15 mins drive from Lucca and about 5 mins drive to the closest cafe and restaurant but remote enough to have real privacy and fantastic views across Lucca from the terrace especially at night.

It was great to hear the farm animals in the area around us and it all added to the experience, however at night we turned on the air conditioning and shut the windows so as not to be woken up by the cockerel .

We used both the BBQ and the Pizza Oven for some great home cooking, although not used I understand the family can cook for you as well on request.

The hot tub and pool were great for spending time in the day and evening and cleaned regularly.

Elisa was amazing and so friendly and always available if we needed any help with anything or advice. Both Loretta and Elisa gave us a tour and we were able to sample the honey straight from the hive still on the honeycomb..

Loretta was there to say goodbye and we were all sad to leave.

All of our family had a great time and would certainly book again.

Superb Villa In A Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

Our three families came together for our annual holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Gobbo. The villa was extremely spacious and very well appointed. Much thought had gone into the Villa with lots to do and everything we could possible need provided which isn't always the case. The family were extremely helpful and we enjoyed a number of their recommendations for visits and eating out, as well as trying the home made pizza and olive oil. All in all a brilliant experience and would definitely stay again and recommend. Many thanks.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove to the gate of the property we were amazed by the breathtaking views and authenticity of the place.

Loretta, Giuseppe and Elisa welcomed us and made us feel at home. Their hospitality and generosity were exceptional.

The house is a renovated property with the charm of old Tuscany and all the amenities we could ask for.

Both the indoor and outdoor spaces are very well maintained and spotless. The owners were very attentive to our needs and suggested local businesses and attractions.

We were lucky enough to sample local honey and olive oil produced on the property. One of the most memorable experiences was making pizza in the wood oven!

It's a very nice place for families with children and for adults.

Thank you to Il Gobbo Family for an outstanding experience. We will hopefully be back soon!

one of my favorite places in the world

  • 5 of 5

I´ve been with my family at Casa Il Gobbo several times during all season (except from winter) and all of us love that place so much for several reasons: Il Gobbo is located in the hills of Segromingno in Monte - when you lie at the pool or sit on the terrace you have a wonderful view all over Lucca with all the olive trees and the village`s church in front...it`s Tuscany as you know from all the pictures- just better because of all the smells and noises of nature.

The building has got a kind of farm-style, but offered all the comfort we needed . Il Gobbo has got a big kitchen with a gas cooker- so it`s possible to cook for a couple of people and have a great dinner at home. We liked it so much that we didn't make it to a restaurant during our last stay, although there are plenty of good restaurants around Segromingno. We also used the fireplace inside during our last stay. But in hot summer the house is still cold during the day, which was very important during our other stays. In summer it gets really hot there, but it`s very nice that there`s always some wind at the hills so you feel much better at the house than in the cities. The only problem during hot days can be the horse flies, but if you dry yourself at once when you get out of the pool and use repellent you can handle it.

I really, really love that place...it's one of my three favorite places in the world just beside a little beach town in brazil and a spiritual place in New Zealand....so it`s a big race where Il Gobbo gets one of the best ranks;)

But you have to be careful- if you wanna see a lot of Tuscany: it might be not possible, because you maybe prefer to stay at the house, in the garden, at the pool,...:)
