Villa Landi one of the most delightful Villas we have stayed in! Its traditional style and very clean and spacious living and bedroom areas make it perfect accommodation for five adult people. Built high up in the hills of San Cassiano, and a short distance from town of Bagni Di Lucca, we could not have wished for a more beautiful and tranquil holiday setting. In the mornings we awoke to the sound of goat bells ringing as the herd made its way up the mountainside. Then we would take breakfast on the fabulous veranda that traversed the length of the villa. As we ate we would watch the early morning display provided by the swifts and swallows as they danced and dived in a clear blue sky, and finally skimmed the surface of our private pool looking for their own breakfast! After a leisurely breakfast we would swim and relax in our large secluded and large private garden, or take a walk in the local area, taking in the daytime sights and sounds of San Cassiano became one of our favourite activities! Some days we took afternoon and evening trips to Pissa, or Lucca, and took in the atmosphere of the piazza whilst eating long lazy evening meals, and drinking copious amounts of beautiful Italian wine! On other trips we explored small villages high in the hills, were the buildings took on an almost cinematic and fairy tale quality On some evenings we would use the purpose built BBQ, and the garden, would take on yet another persona. We would catch the smell of wood smoke as it drifted lazily upward into the late evening sky, listen to the sound of children’s laugher, to families enjoying themselves, and watch the bats put on a late night acrobatic display. And through a combination of the ambient glow given off by both the under water lighting in the swimming pool, and the lights nestling in the cave shaped, and almost ‘cloister’ like outside eating areas, family meals were always joyous, and very atmospheric occasions!On other evenings after visiting the local ‘Penny Market fabulous, and very economical supermarket in Borgo a Mozzano) we would take it in turns to cook dinner in the beautiful kitchen, And whilst we cooked, with the large kitchen windows open, we could feel and smell the barmy summer night air, and as we sat down to eat I am sure we were wished Buon aappetito ‘! By an owl as it hooted on by outside
And as I watch the gray clouds forming outside, and feel the temperature start to fall as summer turns into autumn I wish we were were back there doin
Our stay at Villa Landi!
We recently stayed at Villa Landi with family as my partner & I had chosen the beautiful location of Bagni di Lucca to get married. The villa is spacious and clean, set in beautiful surroundings with spectacular views! We couldn't of chosen a better place for our wedding! The size of the villa meant there was enough space for all 8 of us without feeling we were on top of each other. Mike the owner was incredibly helpful and all of this made our stay very special.
Our wedding day was fantastic - we couldn't of asked for a more perfect day! The ceremony was at Circolo de forestieri in Bagni di Lucca followed by dinner at Santina's, the trattoria 5 minutes walk from the villa. The food at Santina's was wonderful and very reasonable and the views from the terrace are fantastic!
We would highly recommend a stay at Villa Landi to others!
Friends get together
We stayed at this lovely old villa for a week in September 2012 for a friends get together and had a wonderful time. The journey up to the villa is quite beautiful as it passes beside the river and an amazing old bridge. It is very windy at times but a Tom Tom and an automatic car made it easy. The parking is a little below the house right next to a fig tree full of fruit. The picturesque village shop provided fresh pesto for our pasta and lovely Gorgonzola, and local honey to go with the figs. The house feels like an authentic Italian family home, its spacious and comfortable and cool in the heat of the day. The garden is a suntrap, enclosed and private but with a dining area shaded by vines The balcony was great for early morning coffee to watch the sun rising and the clouds drift up between the steep valleys and for an evening aperitif to watch the sun setting. On the one day we has rain and wind we tucked up with a big log fire, books, games and wine and this was voted as one of our favourite days. We had one overnight stay in Florence as we wanted to see the opera at the little St Marks English church on the Via Maggio. We drove to Florence and there was no problem parking close to one of the train stations one stop from the central station. We returned through Lucca, and went cycling along the top of the huge city walls and enjoyed the Sunday flea market. Barga was well worth a visit with spectacular views from the old walls and the little restaurant by the parking area. We would love to return to the villa and explore more of the area.
San Cassiano is a ancient hillside village in the foothills of the Tuscan Appenines with spectacular views across the Lima valley. With its 12th. century church it is designated a 'centro historico' and has a bar/restaurant, shop and butchers within easy walking distance of the villa. Easily accessible from the main SS12 Lucca Modena road. 10 minutes from Bagni di Lucca with its facilities that include the famous spa and large swimming pool which uses the natural spring water. The town has several restaurants, shops and a market twice a week.
