I stayed 10 days in May with friends and then with family. Everyone was enchanted with villa Rook charms, garden and history. The kids loved running around from one room to the other. Despite a few rainy days, we were still able to enjoy the outdoor area and profited from the spacious saloons and kitchen. The villa is well equipped. It is also well located for day trips to Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano, the chianti area, Cinque Terre... We all had a great time! Thank you Eva.
We stayed at Villa Gattaiola for two weeks in December/January 2019 with our two young daughters and another couple. The villa and grounds are absolutely beautiful, the furnishings are comfortable, and the pool is magnificent. Sonia was a wonderful host who helped us to organize day trips and excursions into the surrounding countryside. She also helped us hire a local babysitter and a local cook who made dinner for us several nights. The views from the villa, high in the Tu-scan hills, are breathtaking and Lucca town and wonderful shops were just 5 minutes away. It was the vacation of a lifetime, and I will never forget it. I can't recommend this villa highly enough. It is a true treasure.
