The best holiday ever!! We absolutely loved everythihg about Villa Pallina. A good time was had by all. Sonia recommendation of the Villa for our group worked out beautifully. Sonia was very helpful and always available to answer any questions every step of the way. Cristina both talented chef and caretaker, was very welcoming and helpful with suggestions of things to do. The Villa was set among the beautiful gardens, olive trees and oak trees. There was plenty of space for all to separa-te, roam, relax and have quiet time. At the same time it was wonderful for us all to gather in the spectacular equipped kitchen to cook and then share the meal on the lovely grand terrace in the garden.. We felt like living in the past with the old potteries and cutleries, the antique chairs and fur-niture, a very shabby atmosphere! We thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the private modern pool and walking up to the village for gelato. The add on activities were amazing which included Pisa, Cinque Terra, and a Truffle tour. The highlights were the Personal Chef Dinner and the Cooking Class that Sonia arrange for us. Chef Cristina is awesome cook! We loved the short drive to the charming city of Lucca and spending time shopping and strolling along the narrow streets. Villa Emily is truly a beautiful and peaceful place among the hills. Thank you Sonia for everything. We will treasure the memories forever! Dreaming of our next trip back to the countryside.
Sonia, herewith our review and thank you to you and Laura and the owners.
Firstly the villa is beautiful – a real treat to arrive somewhere that looks just as good as the photos. Marco’s father was lovely and very helpful and Laura showed us everything and we were even invited to take brunch at Marco’s patisserie – which we did and it was great.
We had a fab week – as Da Benito was closed we went to a family local pizzeria called Vito Re Della Pizza – very friendly and lovely pizza – we can also recommend it.
We thought Lucca was stunning and very cosmopolitan. We hope to return to your lovely area next year.
Thank you to Marco for being so helpful re the TV also.
