Why BG Italia chose Media Valle del Serchio

Location, location, location, I bought this property because of it's rural tranquil location, it's stunning views & more importantly for us as a family was the ability to within a 5 minute walk have all the local amenities on our doorstep, including bars, shops, restaurants, banks, supermarkets & public transport links. It is close to the airports of Florence and Pisa, the beaches of Versilian coast, skiing in winter and the lovely historical spa centre of Bagni di Lucca complete with thermal spas ideal for relaxation & pampering. The good transport links mean that we could get around easily without a car. I fell in love with the building on sight a 200 year old villa, which I have spent time lovingly restoring from 3 apartments to the large villa you will see today. I have also added a pool, parking and an enclosed garden which is safe for children of all ages.

What makes this villa unique

The views are what sold it to me as well as the location. Each balcony, each part of the garden gives you a different stunning Tuscan mountain view. I loved the fact that it is always in sun even in winter and being Italian this was important to me!. I also loved that the neighbours and people around the villa are so friendly and helpful giving you a wave and a Ciao Buongiorno! when ever they see you. Each season brings with it its own magic. Spring is lovely, fruit trees & flowers start to bloom and it is warm without being too hot, walking and the food festivals start.

Summer is sunny and can be hot, these months are filled with local festivals and great summer activities such as days at the beach or relaxing around the pool.

Autumn is filled with more festivals and this is the time of year we collect mushrooms and cook our chestnuts over the log fire. Winter you usually get snow and of course you can enjoy the nearby ski resorts too. The log fire makes the villa feel extra cosy and many a glass of Chianti has been enjoyed around the blazing fire in the evening!. It is a great winter base to see the area too with Christmas markets and other festive activities for families to enjoy.

Lovely Villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday this year at Villa Rossa was fantastic. The villa was perfect for our family group of 10 who wanted time together and a chill out holiday. The ground floor setup as a 1 bed apartment was ideal for our parents, as it was on one level, and led directly to the garden. The property had 2 fully equipped kitchens with all we needed to cook meals for our large family group in the evening. Many a great night was spent together out in the lovely garden under the gazebo, enjoying the bbq and trying out the pizza oven. We travelled to see Pisa and Florence which was easy to get to from the property. We were however just content to stay at the villa, as it had a real home from home feeling that for us wanting a chill out holiday together made it perfect. We chose not to have a welcome meeting with the owner as some of our group had been to Tuscany before so we knew our way around. Although we did find him very acommodating when we needed help with something.

If you are thinking of booking a holiday villa we would recommend Villa Rossa it is just lovely.

Owner's Response: Hello again and thank you so much for your review. We are so pleased you found the villa and the surrounding area met and as you said to us exceeded your expectations. The villa was our home originally so as you said in your review it is equipped with all you would expect from a luxury family villa. Having a large Italian family we often cooked at home, so appreciate that having all you need for big family groups to eat together especially in the kitchens is important. The villa is perfectly placed to visit many of the Tuscan tourist sights and the Marco the local taxi bus we can organise, as we did for you to pick you up and drop you off at the door of the villa. So there is no need even to drive!! Thanks again for your review take care Antonio and family

Owner's Response: We were so happy to meet you all finally and are pleased you loved the villa. It's size layout and facilities makes it perfect for family get togethers, as you mentioned during your stay. It's location being only a 5 minute walk to bars, shops and restaurants means that you can enjoy meals without worrying about driving back home, so lots of wonderful local vino can be enjoyed by all!!. The pool is always a big hit with the clients especially in the heat of the day and the enclosed gardens make it perfectly safe for little ones! Hope to see you again in the future, until then take care all of you. Kindest Regards Antonio & Family

Superb Villa in a lovely rural area

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned home after spending a fantastic week at Villa Rossa. We are a family of six adults and the villa was perfect for our needs, we found it very comfortable and welcoming. It's rural setting was the best place to enjoy a quiet relaxing time, but good to have shops and local amenities close by.

We spent all of our mealtimes outside under the gazebo while cooking on the BBQ or in the pizza oven which was so much fun, we didn't feel the need to go out to eat at all. The swimming pool was the perfect place to cool off as the weather was fabulous.

We had great days out visiting Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the beach at Lido I'd Camiore, but it was so nice to get back to the villa to chill out and relax after our time sightseeing.

We would recommend this Villa Rossa to anyone planning a family holiday to Tuscany, we had a very happy time there.

Sorry we didn't get to meet you Antonio, but thank you for sharing Villa Rossa.

Great family villa in terrific location

  • 4 of 5

We have just had a great extended family holiday in Tuscany staying at Villa Rossa. Our extended family included, my wife’s sister, our son and daughter, their partners and children (20 months to 3 years) In total there were 7 adults and 3 children. Villa Rossa was perfect for us.

The ground floor 1 bed apartment was ideal for our daughter, her partner and 20 month old twins. It was on one level with its own kitchen and led directly to the garden. The main living are with its kitchen enabled us to cook meals for our large family group in the evening. Many a great night was spent together out in the garden, enjoying the swimming pool and bbq.

The property was set in beautiful countryside with a short walk to the shops. The villa was clean, tidy and Antonio, the owner was charming and very helpful

Villa Rossa is perfect for a family group. It is in a great location and ideal for anyone wanting a to rent a villa with the home from home feel about it. If you are thinking of booking a holiday villa in Tuscany we would recommend Villa Rossa, it is terrific.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review, you were a joy to have a clients. The house is in a perfect location, close to all the amenities you would need. This year it has a new large shady rustic gazebo covered in wisteria over one of the sun lounger areas and the outside eating area with pizza oven and BBQ. We are finding clients love to eat at home as you said in your review, as well as in the many restaurants that can be found in a short walk. The property is divided in a way that works well for larger groups like yourselves, as everyone can have their living space with the 2 living rooms and kitchens it has, as well as the communal garden area being large. Thanks again for your review take care all of you, Kind Regards Antonio
