Beautiful property, great pool, pleasant and helpful host.
The house was fabulous, large and clean and had everything we needed. The views were amazing. Giacomo was an excellent host, really helpful and the guide he provided was informative and so useful. The pool was perfect. We had a great time, Thanks!
A great base for a family holiday close to the beautiful city of Lucca
The house was comfortable and a nice place to come back to after a day exploring. The olive trees offered shade throughout the day. There is lots to do in the area, and Giacomo is extremely helpful, offering useful advice and suggestions about day trips and places to eat. We also enjoyed the fresh produce that Giacomo brought for us. Thank you!
Lovely location and owner
Was a nice house, and owner was very helpful with assistant/ questions - and bringing fruit and veg. Although - could have done with a washing machine and dishwasher! It is a great area - and lots of great places to visit nearby.
Thank you Emily!
For future guests: a washing machine will be there in summer 2019!
Owner cares but house isn’t quite ready.
The house is nice and partly renovated. The owner is very attentive to needs of the guest. There is air conditioning only in two of the 4 bedrooms and nowhere else in the house. Only one of the bathrooms was fully functional on the top floor. The second floor bathroom was original and the floor drain was slow to drain resulting in flooded floors and stairway. No washing machine, but owner expressed that he would purchase one soon. Kitchen was very nice. The patio area is new as well. The property is attached to another home. The family keeps to themselves mostly, however there is a newborn baby or toddler that cry’s often. That situation will work itself out with time. We would definitely stay here again once the missing pieces have been addressed. Thank you.
Thank you Gianfranco.
1) CONDITIONED AIR:
There are THREE rooms, not four.
Conditioned air is in two rooms out of three.
The only room without it is the one never exposed to the sun (which is fresher and has a ventilator in case of need).
When i came for the check-out, temperature inside ALL the house was 18 degrees (which is not even healthy when outside it's 30 degrees or more).
That tells me that the air conditioning system can work even more than needed.
No one ever complained about it for a reason.
2) WASHING MACHINE
For future guests: it will be there after the end of this summer (2018).
3) SECOND BATHROOM (just explaining for future guests):
It is a complete bathroom, just not suitable for long showers as it's quite small and it's not possible to install a shower tray (the drain hole is directly on the floor, so it's ok only for quick showers).
Apart from that, thank you for your stay: you have been very friendly guests!
Pleasant stay and beautiful surroundings
The property was what we were expecting and much more, we would love to come back - it's in a beautiful setting but only 10 minutes into Lucca, 45 minutes to Pisa and Florence.
The pool is large and in a private well kept fenced oliveyard.
Giacomo has been an excellent host and had great advice about places to eat and visit.
Recommended and we hope to return!
A small gem in the Tuscan hills!
We have been so lucky to find this property in this charming corner of tuscany - super clean, super quiet and super price, at least the one we paid was clearly below the average in the Lucca hills area : - )
The house is huge, although we were only four people there is plenty of space for more, two bathrooms and a very beautiful and complete old-style kitchen : - )
We loved the private oliveyard with the roman well and the big swimming pool, it is definitely bigger than it looks in the pictures, there is a lot of space to swim and chill out - and of course the amazing panoramas from every room, they were stunning : - )
Only one small downside, the wi-fi is fast on ground and first floor but not easy to reach in the second floor bedroom!
Thank you Guacomo, you have been very kind and we really hope to come back!
