What makes this Villa unique
We searched through over 30 properties and fell in love with this property/villa immediately we walked in. There were many factors that instantly made us want to buy it. The well kept traditional Tuscan village the villa is located in, the beautiful villa itself, fantastic views, the large garden with a wall around it, big pool. There is nothing better than enjoying a long lunch in the garden under the big tree and then plunging into the pool for a refreshing dip.

Classic old style Italian villa in a beautiful part of Tuscany
Lovely holiday over a week in a beautiful part of Tuscany. Bedrooms were large and high ceilings, bathrooms were new and had wet room style showers. Kitchen was fine for six food lovers who cooked in most nights. Loads and loads of room with a good size dining room and living room with tv etc on the second floor. Also there is a massive garden and a large pool - children would adore this. Plenty of parking (car essential in my view) next door to the house adjacent to a cafe/shop which stocks a good amount of essentials as well as amazing croissant style pastries. Brilliant start to the day looking out over the mountains and valleys with a cappuccino and one of these. There is also a good butcher 200m up the road and a baker and a small quirky pizzeria 400 m away. Il Merendero looks like it is in a small industrial estate but ta fine. No menu just fabulous pizzas!! Villetta village is a five min drive along the main road from which you can catch the train to Lucca and Pisa. Brush up your Italian coz there’s not a lot of English spoken around here ( which was great!). Excellent time all round
Thank you very much for your review.
I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at the villa.
Secluded but included
Stunning views, wonderful spacious villa, great pool, large walled and hedged private garden with both sunny and shaded areas. Local shops and restaurants, an excellent supermarket 25 minutes away, what more do you need!
Beautiful, spacious villa
We spent a lovely week here - it was well furnished and the garden was beautiful. There are loads of towns nearby to explore, and the views from the garden are stunning. Couldn't have wished for a better time :)
Relaxing holiday in beautiful Villa
We spent a relaxing holiday in this lovely house in the Italian countryside.
The house has 5 very good sized bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. There is also a big garden to relax in, which has a pool and some tables which are lovely to eat breakfast and dinner outside on. The house was very clean, had free wifi and everything you could need. There is a bakery, butchers and shop very close by which you can stock up on most things from.
It was very easy to spend lots of time just relaxing at the house and in the garden however we also explored the area. I would recommend having a hire car to get around. I would especially recommend Chinque Terre, 5 beautiful costal villages, you can drive to La Spezia then get the train or ferry to the towns. If you get the train there is a car park at the station that you can use and you can get a daily train ticket fairly cheaply. Then you can either walk between the villages, get the ferry or get the train. We did one walk and I would highly recommend doing at least one as the scenery was beautiful, it took around 2 hours and did have a lot of steps but was definitely worth it. We also spent a day in Lucca, a beautiful town that you can hire bikes and cycle around, there are pretty much no cars in Lucca so it is very safe.
Perfect house in the beautifull Garfagnana
With a party of 8, we spend one week in this great property.It was an ideal spot to ewplore the unspoiled and beautifull region of the Garfagnana. We loved the spacious 5 bedrooms, the well-equiped 3 bathrooms and kitchen, , the shady garden and sunny swimming pool. The contact with the owner Jukka and the housekeeper went smoothless. We would advice this clean and confortable house to every group or family, who want to relax in a quiet environment, and visit this unknown but very nice part of Tuscany,
Lovely Villa - Lovely Region of Italy
We spent a wonderful week in this lovely spacious Villa. There were five good sized bedrooms, a beautiful garden and pool and a pretty breakfast terrace.
The village was very friendly and had a very good butcher, bakery and small shop/bar which seemed to sell everything.
The region was beautiful and was wonderful for walking with hills and spectacular mountains. There were plenty of places to visit, especially Lucca which we visited by a small local train.
Jukka was very helpful and directed us to an excellent nearby supermarket.
All in all, a great holiday. Hope to return.
Local caretaker will meet and greet with the keys upon guest arrival. Separate heating surcharge outside summer period.
