About Jukka Viljanen

We are a Finnish/Australian family currently living in Dubai.

Jukka Viljanen purchased this villa in 2006

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jukka who owns the villa with his wife was a great help with quick responses before and during our stay. This was very much appreciated when one of the party came back to the villa early without the front door key. We were a party of 10 (2 families of 5). The children from 10 to 19 had great fun in the pool, which was well equipped with sun loungers. We enjoyed the adventure park nearby and also the horse riding in another neighboring village. The villa was very clean with good size bedrooms. The 2 bathrooms have recently been renovated with great showers; no bath, but this didn't worry us as we prefer showers. The cafe next door has a small supermarket and serves great coffee.

Thanks for all your help during our stay.

Beautiful, spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely Villa - Lovely part of Italy

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely Villa in September. The villa was spacious and there were five attractive good sized bedrooms. The views were lovely and the garden was large with a wonderful pool, outside table and chairs, barbecue and a pretty breakfast terrace.

The small village was very pretty and had an excellent Butcher, Baker and shop which seemed to sell everything! The little bar was very welcoming. The area was great for walking with amazing hills and mountains and there was plenty of places to visit - a small fort nearly, Castelnuovo and the beautiful town of Lucca.

A good time was had by all!
