We rented Residensia Manzi for 5 days. I was apprehensive going there with 5 teenagers ages 13 to 15. I thought it would be too slow paced for them. I was very happy to be wrong. We spent a week on a cruise in Greece and then 5 days in Lucca. Residensia Manzi had all the character of a Tuscan home but also all the modern conveniences. Our kids loved the long dinners we prepared at home, then dinner strolls hunting for Gelato. Lucca was a great jumping point to Siena, Florence, etc. Charles and Andrea were also very helpful in helping us plan our vacation. I highly recommend Residensia Manzi. Our teens actually said Lucca was their favorite part of our trip. We have beautiful memories of our stay and hope to come back soon."
