A wonderful property full of rustic charm with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic week. Do not be put off by the gravel road leading to Carpineta Ranch it is worth the adventure!

It is also worth mentioning the supermarket in Marlia which is very handy for stocking up on provisions for the week.

This location offered us the perfect place to explore and relax.

The property itself is very comfortable and well equipped with plenty of room for all 7 of us.

Outside in the grounds and by the pool you are treated to the most spectacular views.

Evening meals spent outside at the large dining table accompanied by the sound of crickets were especially memorable.

In terms of venturing out, the town of Lucca is very near by and with some research we visited nearby mountain villages plus a day trip to Florence. Trains run half hourly from Lucca and take around an hour 30 mins.

Simply taking a mountainside walk to the nearby church ruin has rewarding views.

The owners Simonetta, Frederico and family are charming, warm and fun. They couldn't help us enough.

(They are not fluent English speaking - members of our party did speak Italian and French which helps) plus their dogs Buck and Freda - and the cat - are very friendly too!

We would definitely visit again and cannot thank them enough for their hospitality. A truly Italian experience!

Lovely hospitable host family who couldn't have been more helpful and inviting, whilst ensuring we had the privacy to enjoy the beautiful location and comfortable accommodation. We had a truly authentic Tuscany experience and would highly recommend.

We spent a wonderful 6 nights at Carpineta Ranch and loved everything about it. The house is rustic, full of character and very well equipped. I was a bit worried about not having air con but the air in the mountains was cooler and made for comfortable sleeping also helped by comfortable beds and lovely crisp fresh bedding. Great pool, lovely garden, stunning views. The owners were very welcoming and helpful but do not speak much English so brush up on your Italian or Spanish!

Magnificent views, quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

A typically rustic Tuscan farmhouse, set in the hills, only 20 minutes from Lucca. Whole family made us feel very welcome. The views from the pool were amazing, so peaceful, we didn't want to go anywhere!

Allt he best for your family

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist sauber und der Blick in die unberührte Landschaft sagenhaft. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Ein rundum gelungener Urlaub.
