Villa Pineta, a Tuscan treasure. Such a lovely villa, quiet and secluded in the hills north of Lucca, a gem of a villa with a wonderful pool and surroundings and wonderful vista. The villa is a refurbished farmhouse, with superb tranquil gardens with an uninterrupted view of the countryside. The living accommodation is well equipped, and the bedrooms and bathrooms well appointed. The wonderful pool is a highlight and well maintained, with easy access roman steps, plenty of pool furniture and glorious shade from the fig trees when the sun gets too much. The villas other facilities including the lovely terrace with its comfortable seating, dining area and a barbecue, and a recent covered carport adds to a wonderfully peaceful and enjoyable stay. The owners recommendations for places to enjoy evening meals and drinks are were well justified. The house keeping was well done and efficient but never intrusive. We would happily recommend a visit to Villa Pineta, a true 5 star enjoyable experience, we shall return.
